CieniKreater in than that of April May and June 1928 mor than a normal growth with build Ing contracts and new car sale showing tremendous increases Such is the report of the Univer slty of Iowa bureau of business re search compiled by Dr George R Davies professor In the college of commerce and one of the bureaus business authorities Steady progress was maintained ay the states business Indicating that Iowa is participating to some degree in the nations general pros perity Doctor Davies found From the level of March April displayed an unexpected decline but May and June rallied in a satisfactory man ner Building Contracts Soar Building contracts Increased 237 er cent over the second quarter of 928 and 1721 par cent over the irst quarter of this year This gain rofessor Davies points out Is even more striking after a decline during 929s first quarter which reached n abnormally low point in March araleHing in part the building rec rd of the nation The second feature of Import mce is the gain in sale and use of utomobiles During April and May the number of new cars sod In Iowa Increased about 45 per cent over the same months of 1928 The reports show an Increase of some 27 per cent in gasoline sales June figures have not yet been com pleted Employment Shows Gain With a consistent gain of 9 per cent employment Improved over the record of April May and June of
