The program, called "Blueprint for Kentucky's Progress," was made public yesterday by David F. Cocks, President of the Kentucky Chamber, during a broadcast over 31 radio stations throughou the State. Cocks said the KCC is calling on every Kentuckian to work toward the achievements he outlined, adding, "Every citizen has his own job to perform. He can do a better job for himself and his employer by working part-tim- e for all of Kentucky." Here is the Kentucky Chamber development program as outlined by Cocks: $1,500,000,000 in new and .Industry expanded plant investment between 1953 and 1960. 238,000 new jobs created for during the next seven years. $3,500,000,000, cumuTourist Income lative between 1953 and 1960, in tourist in-i J come wun enlarged accommoaauuns auu ue- velopment of shrines, private facilities, and parks. $5,000,000,000 from new Agriculture crops, increased production, improved production methods, and new markets by 1960. $4,210,000,000, Natural Resources cumulative, from Kentucky's coal, natural gas, oil, clay, timber, flourspar, and limestone through new uses and new markets, with industrial) consumption nearHhe producing Jobs s j Ken-tuckia- ns 3 -j cumulative, from retail, wholesale, and service trade, through greater purchasing power, improved sales methods, and modernization of facilities. Per Capita Income 4A 35 per cent increase in per capita income or equal to the national average by 1960. Taxation A more constant local and State government revenue by eliminating dependence upon a few industries as major sources- Tax structure that will encourage development of Agriculture, business, and one that will protect our free industry economic system. Guaranteed freedom of choice Labor to employees. Unions responsible for their actions in the same manner as individual citizens, organizations, and businesses. Cooperation and participation of union leaders in assuring "success of the KCC program in issuing statements and by initiating programs which will cause industry to look with favor on Kenucky as a place in which to locate.

Work programs for agriculture, business, and in dustry enabling Kentucky youth to obtain an education. Kentucky jobs available for Kentucky graduates. Diversification in Economic Balance agriculture, commerce, and industry to pre vent serious loss of jobs and income because of individual market conditions. Cocks, who is vice president of Standard Oil Company of Kentucky, cited Kentucky's early development as "the gateway to the West" and the later loss of its preeminence as one of the largest river trade states and manufacturing centers- - "All of a sudden," said Cocks, "we became aware of Kentucky's plight." He pointed out that, by 1946, the Commonwealth "ranked alarmingly low" in important spheres of economic activity. search"In the midst of this dilemma ing for a way to raise Kentucky's standards and from a great determination, men and women of vision organized in 1946 the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce- It was to be and the the meeting place for know-homutual efforts of Kenucky's businessmen, her industrialists, her agriculturalists, her workers all citizens and organization." More income for every citizen, a higher tandard of living, and a greater voice for all citizens in solving the State's problems were three basic purposes for which the KCC was formed, Cocks said. KCC President Cocks, of Louisville, labeled Kentucky's economic growth from 1946 to today "phenomenal". He reported that per capita income rose 26 per cent in the last eight years and that there are 45,000 more people holding jobs today than in 194G. Other development figures quoted by Cocks: "We are paying 71 per cent more to educate our children, and our tourist income dollar has more than trebled. "Our retail trade is up 53 per cent. Wholesale trade 24 per cent. "In 1946, $68,000,000 in new and expanded industry located in Kentucky. Last year, more than one billion dollars was invested in new and expanded industry in our - w State- - "These figures indicate great progress," Cocks said, "especially when you compare them to national average increases. By any measuring stick. Kentucky's economic growth is nothing shor'of phenomenal." In answer to his question, "But where are we going?" Cocks announced the 12 goals. These goals cannot be accomplished by the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce alone or by any other single group, according to Cocks. He called on State Government, legislators, agriculture, industry, commerce, organizaions, civic labor, local and state-wid- e clubs, cultural organizations, youth groups, and women's clubs to back the nt ing" "Tf narents don't take time to train up their children "hi the way they should go, De assured that the devil is reaoy to take over." - - - OUR SERVICE PLEDGE To merit your lasting friendship to merit your lasting goodwill -- we operate our service business in accordance with the followinq principles- WE WILL accurately diagnose to the best of our s; WE WILL WE WILL WE WILL HARRY M.
