I the b-50, on temporary duty with the 15th weather recon Naissance Squadron at Eielson from Forbes Field Topeka kan., was approximately 100 Miles East and slightly North of the huge russian military base at Petro Pavlovsk on the Kamchatka Peninsula. Rich gave this account of the skirmish an editorial your chamber of Commerce attention is called to the drive of the chamber of Commerce to recruit 100 new members. It s a one Day sales Effort to con Vince the owners of at least 100 smaller businesses that the chamber of Commerce is working for them to persuade them that there is a connection Between the activities of the Cham Ber and the growth of business there is a connection Between the general growth of business and the Small business operator. Therefore there is a direct connection Between the Small Mer chant and the chamber. Of course a Man May say Okay so the chamber of Commerce helps me. But it will help me just As much if i Don t that is absolutely True but let s Hope nobody around Kingsport is going to take that viewpoint. Why is the chamber of Commerce membership drive a mat Ter for special editorial comment that takes a very simple answer too. Because the chamber of Commerce whose commit tees work for the development of roads the bringing of new business to Kingsport Public welfare programs civic improve ments and Many other aspects of Community life is working just As much for John Jones As for John Jones employer. Generally speaking general welfare is made up of the sum total of individual welfare. And welfare is contagious. Your welfare is tied up with others welfare. So As we see it it would be a very shortsighted policy to act As if the chamber of Commerce was something of interest Only to Industry management and store owners. The individual is not asked to join or pay dues but he should not lose the feel ing that it is working for him just the same. And by the same Token the Small businessmen should not feel let the big Fellows do As a matter of fact if anyone could get along without a chamber of Commerce it would be the very Large plants. They have something to gain but actually much less to gain than the Small businessmen and the individual. So As a tremendous Force in the economic growth of Kings port the chamber of Commerce deserves full cooperation. The bigger the chamber is the More it can accomplish for All of us and with pulling it can do a bigger and better Job.
