Big Spring Daily Herald (Newspaper) - June 28, 1955, Big Spring, Texas A Bible thought for today saying with a loud voice worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive Power and riches and Wisdom and strength and Honor and glory and Blessing. Rev. 5 12 editorial double deadly Holiday nears another of those gory weekends is coming up. For millions of americans it will Start when they Knock off work next Friday for the customary saturday Sun Day cessation from labor. For millions it will Start at noon saturday or perhaps at quitting time that afternoon or evening when stores close. But because monday is Independence Day there will be a double Holiday for nearly everyone and a three Day Holiday for a great Many. Double holidays spell trouble on the nations highways. The Normal rate of accidents always climbs up usually resulting in hundreds killed thousands injured and enormous property damage. The National safety Council reminds us that in nearly one fourth of the fatal traffic accidents either a Driver or an adult pedestrian has been drinking. In another 17 per cent of fatal accidents the Drivers Are found to be in a physical condition that could be a contributing Factor in the Accident. In about three fifths of these latter cases the Drivers Are fatigued or asleep. They become drowsy perhaps Quot Black out with sleep momentarily and thus set the stage for a crash. A cup of Good Strong Coffee at the right time might save your life. There Are two simple rules for avoiding Accident from Over indulgence in drink a slogan the Texas Highway department has been Ding longing into Peoples consciences for decades if you drive done to drink if you drink done to drive. Alcohol slows Down reaction time induces drowsiness and if enough of it is present in the blood it converts Normal inhibitions and restraints into aggressive behaviour. So from a cold blooded practical standpoint let somebody else do either the drinking or the driving. If you re planning a Holiday trip Start Early and take your time going and coming. Remember that the loads Are doubly hazardous during Holiday periods and take that into consideration in your planning and your driving. Remember it is supposed to be a Holiday not a holocaust. Pointing up to a levelling off in their july business Roundup released today the editors of Fortune Magazine predict 1956 will probably be another a Best business year in with the Gross National product g. N. A running at the annual rate of $585 billion in 1955 dollars. Rut the Magazine thinks Industrial output next year As distinguished from total output May turn Down in the second Quarter and As a result the 1956 average May not quite match that of 1955. A in the past twelve months business has staged a full cyclical recovery in the next twelve it will be Riding the Crest of an expansion the Fortune men assert. A by the Spring of 1956, Industrial advances will be selective Competition fierce and Many markets Una lanced. Costa will be up demand easing and inventories rising. Despite corporate tax cuts scheduled for april 1956. Many businesses will find it harder to make a profit next but 1956 Outlook is neither for continued expansion nor for a general a preces Sion even As mild As in 1953 54, Fortune says. It finds the g. N. P. Has risen $20 billion in the last twelve months against a Fortune prediction of a Rise of Sio billion. But this unusually rapid Pace of business recover a cannot be expected to continue much longer it adds and is one reason a a a corrective is Likely in 1956. Inventory building accounted for $8 billion of the g. N. P. Rise and the remaining $12 billion was due to High consumer spending particularly for cars and Homes. Fortune thinks the a a corrective is already visible As housing starts Are off 8 per cent since March and car sales seasonally adjusted have declined 2 per cent. While the portion of the Fortune Survey we saw made no reference to the political effects of a slump in the 1956 second Quarter you May be sure the political Wise acres Are greatly interested in that Angle. If the a a corrective decline is rather pronounced it will cause democratic Hopes to soar and Republican Hopes to falter. It could Well be the big Issue. Hollywood review Jane s Lucky she likes to work Hollywood of a its Lucky that Jane Wyman likes work because she s going to be up to her pretty eyelashes in acting assignments for the next three years. This week she was Labouring on a Miracle in the rain with Van Johnson. She finishes july 12, then starts july 15 on a gruelling to schedule that will consume the rest of the year.

It Star Victor Mclaglen and Wallace Ford and i believe it s the first time they be been together since a the a Jane dipped her toe into to a year ago when she made a half hour show which appeared on g. E. Theater this season. It was the Type of Story line that might have developed into a series a the Story of a woman doctor. But she abandoned that idea in favor of an anthology Type of series. Jane said she Wasny to just a passive member of the Enterprise. Its her company and she has Ber Finger in ail phases of production. She ought to know How to juggle the movie making angles in 18 years of film acting she has accumulated a we orid of knowledge.

A live got to do a picture a year during the next three years for Warners and a i a she said. A the options for the to show come at the same time As those deals. So it All goes Well ill be tied up completely for the next three years. A Bob Thomas business Mirror computers keep business on toes new York up a a carpet maker is turning to a technical brain to help him lick the problem of the Public s fickle taste. To survive in this competitive age a manufacturer must Roll quickly with the punches of the Consumers. Sales data computed quickly on punched cars reveals color and Tyle trends in floor covering.

After the Bulldozer James Marlow guessing game Why does the Bear Grin Washington of a guessing Why the russians have changed from growl to Grin has become a kind of International parlor game which anyone can play with or without facts. A Little Wishful thinking helps. Latest Guesser is Gen. Carlos p. Romulo of the Philippines. At the United nations anniversary in san Francisco last week during a television interview he said the Kremlin leaders Are having trouble among themselves and want a breather. This was hardly an original contribution. It s a guess that a made whenever there a a major change in Moscow like the demotion of Georgi Malenkos from the premiership. There has been no evidence to support it then or later. There a been no breakup. The russians themselves have Given a More plausible reason without saving so. For their sudden air of Sweet reasonableness. Foreign minister v. M. Molotov pointed to it again in san Francisco. The russians want the West to disarm. For years in one Way or another mostly a Tough Way they have desperately tried to break up the Western Alliance prevent West Germany a rearmament and discourage the building of american air bases in Friendly countries around Russia. They failed in All three. The last great Hope they had was to keep West Germany disarmed. It was Only after the allies gave Germany the go ahead this year that the russians changed their attitude. They be been pleasant Ever since. Nothing More could be accomplished by threats or toughness. They lose by a twist in tactics. Indeed they might accomplish More with sounds of peace than they Ever achieved with belligerency. Molotov spelled out precisely what the russians want the american air bases dismantled the Western Alliance broken up and the allies to disarm. Since the West is realistic the russian desire bears a Price tag. The allies knowing that once their Alliance was broken up and they had disarmed they might never again be a match for Russia would need some Iron guarantees that Russia would disarm to the Point where it be a menace. Molotov talked of russian willingness to disarm and prohibit the use of atomic weapons. This armament but the russians sounds like a tremendous conces Haven to yet been willing to agree Sion by Russia. The test of its to the allies idea of a disarm earnestness lies ahead. Ment system which would let each the russians and the West have Side Check thoroughly on the other been bickering for years about Dis to be sure. Hoi Boyle who la carry the Candle new York.

Tough Guy Deer Park Ufi a City marshal Ben j. Royall asked the City Council to buy him a new Blackjack. His old one was worn out around the rim pulitzer prize but no appreciation i recently heard two of the 1955 pulitzer prize winners Tell How they earned their awards. As the awards we Ere for work in journalism i expected to hear and see persons Well versed in the Field. However this was not the Case. Kenneth town Ery editor of the Cuero record won his award for digging out the facts on the Veteran land deals that resulted in the indictments of Bascom Giles. Be Towery has had Only three years experience in journalism and in College he majored in chemistry. He has never had any instruction in journalism except on the Cuero record. The other prizewinner mrs. Caro Brown of the Alice Echo was awarded a prize for reporting the Duval county mess. It is said that mrs. Browm had a difficult time in journalism school. With these respective backgrounds the two persons have received tile highest honors available in the u. S. In their Fields. I suspect that there must be something More to this newspaper business than a College education. Another interesting sidelight on these two people is the regard in which they Are treated in the counties where they have done so much. Towery said that people who used to drink Coffee with him done to do it anymore. Since exposing some of the local officials he is often regarded As suspect. This is his other award for saving the taxpayers untold thousands of dollars each year. Mrs. Brown had a similar Story to relate. Before the Duval county Story broke she said that the area was like a jail. People did no to meet on the Street Corner to discuss the local political situation. They met in dark alleys or Backrooms. People were afraid to follow the dictates of their conscience in regards to voting. Now that the county and general area is becoming once More a part of the a land of the free mrs. Brown too is an outcast. Since her work against George Parr so said she had not been invited to any luncheons or local meetings where once she was welcomed. She receives offers to speak in other states and outside the area but not in Duval county. The very persons she helped Are now treating her As an outcast. Ifs a pretty difficult thing to understand. Both of these people sacrificed a lot of time and Effort in order to help their particular areas. The Only thanks they have received is a pulitzer prize and a suspicious look. A psychologist should be Able to draw some right interesting results from that. A Glenn Cootes j. A. Livingston americans resist Appeal of Wall Street done to let anyone Tell you a Wall Street speculators born every minute. It just Isnit so. Ask the next person you meet in the supermarket if he or any of his family owns Stock. Odds Are about ten to one hell say no. Yet for six years. Wall Street has had the Benefit of a Bull Market. Front pages of newspapers have proclaimed �?o1929 highs All of which is supposed to promote sales get new customers make americans common Stock Happy. But the excitement has been largely confined to a narrow Circle a to the Well to do Well educated and residents of Large cities. The automobile worker the Carpenter the Bank clerk the Salesman tile Coal Miner and the Farmer Haven to emptied their sugar bowls mattresses or Bank accounts into Wall Street. When it comes to Money to savings we americans Are still creatures of habits old habit. A taste for stocks has to be developed like a taste for martinis or caviar. It goes or does no to go with your environment your upbringing and your income bracket. That a suggested anew by the latest study of consumer finances by the Survey research Center of the University of Michigan for the Federal Reserve Board. Only about 8 per cent of american families spending units own common stocks. That a a Rise from Early 1952, when the proportion was 7 per cent. But ifs a slow and modest Rise a considering the length and breadth of the Bull Market the Boom in uranium shares and the extensive advertising by the new York Stock Exchange of its monthly investment plan. The Survey shows that Only 4 per cent of the families with incomes of less than $3,000 owned Stock. In contrast 35 per cent of families with $10.000-and-up incomes were stockholders. The percentages Are self explanatory. Persons who have gone to College tend to have More responsible jobs than persons who have had less schooling. Therefore their incomes Are higher. Therefore they have a bigger pot of Money out of which to save and invest. Also they re More Likely to have been brought up in a common Stock environment than no collegians members of their family relatives friends and business associates May own stocks talk about stocks and leave about tilt House financial magazines and newspapers occupations also Are a guide to Stock ownership. Only 3 per cent of workers in Blue Denim told the University of Michigan Doorbell ringers that they own Stock As against 21 per cent of professional persons a doctors lawyers dentists writers Etc. Farmers Are in Between at 8 per cent. In time the Bull Market the advertising and Prosperity itself May result in a major breakthrough in Stock ownership. It May cause Farmers and persons with lower incomes to shift some of their savings from savings Banks and savings associations to common Stock. Indeed As we Ages mount in the Auto steel and other industries workers will have More left Over for stocks. Moreover As their fringe benefits Widen pensions higher unemployment compensation hospitalization a have less need for a Large amount of Cash reserves for old age and sickness. be better Able to afford the risk of common stocks. But that a a matter of time of understanding of realizing what Protection they already have. It Calls for a change in saving habits a and such changes Are slow. That a Why Only a minority of americans a estimated Between 5.500.000 and 7,500.000 a own common stocks. That s Why the Stampede to own a share in America is still to come. Marquis Childs natural Gas Bill runs into real trouble particular thief Houston Ltd a a was a choosy sort of Chap. When he held up a package store he said a give me All the Money except pennies and foreign coins a the clerk handed Ever 82. Washington columnist Thomas l. Stokes is substituting for Marquis Childs who is on vacation. A a a by Thomas l. Stokes Washington a the natural Gas Bill which has millions of Consumers so aroused seems to have run into real trouble in Congress. At least that would appear a natural inference from recent developments in the House of representatives. Among them la the Way so powerful and High placed a figure As democratic speaker Sam Rayburn is taking it upon himself to try to Rescue this controversial Bill that would exempt producers of natural Gas from regulation by the Federal Power commission. The texan who rules the House seems to feel furthermore that it May need even greater and higher authority than his to do the trick either that or he wants someone to share responsibility with him for this measure that has become a byword to millions of citizens and voters. That at least might explain what he said when he restated his support for the measure for the first time publicly in this Congress a which was that its enactment we Ould require the full support of the Eisenhower administration. That sounded like a Call for help from the president whom the speaker hat helped out of several legislative difficulties this session. President Eisenhower has refrained from committing himself personally for exemption legislation though such was recommended by a committee of Cabinet members on Energy resources in its recent report to him. It has been assumed he would sign an exemption Bill of Congress passed one. The first clue that the Bill might be in trouble Iii the House where it was brought Forward soon after this democratic Congress opened was when it won Only a 16-to-15 vote of approval from the Ollous interstate Commerce com Mitt a few Days ago after protracted Public hearings this narrow margin was not Only unexpected but was recognized As a serious threat to the measure. It was attributed to the clamor raised by mayors and other representative of for Sumen who followed one another la a Parade before the committee. Another portent of trouble was seen in the sudden move by the Bill a sponsor rep. Oren Harris dark after its squeak through for a full scale investigation by the interstate Commerce committee of the transportation and distribution of natural Gas including costs and rates. He contends that recent increases in Price of natural Gas Are in those Aras rather than in the production end. But his opponents called this a diversionary movement to take consumer heat off of producers. Still another move for the investigation Man Euver was suggested when rep. Harris appeared in mid week before the House rules committee to ask a Green Light for consideration of his Resolution by the House. Rep. Ray Madden a ind it blurted out that it. Looked to him As if the investigation was proposed As a smoke screen behind which to push the Bill through the House. Sponsors of the Gas Bill he said could Point to tile proposed investigation and say to Consumers that prices were being investigated to protect them. This was after the Arkansas member had told rep. Madden that it was his intention to go ahead with the exemption Bill in the House without waiting for the investigation which he said would take months.
