contracts for residential construction in the 37 states east of the Rocky mountains were larger than for any other month since the close of 1931 The corporation called the factor the most favorable in the otherwise relatively drab picture of current consumption activity The total of residential contracts for April reached as against 000 in the same month last year The cor poration does not obtain records from the states west of the Rocky mountains Coming on top of the substantial gain in March and an increase of about 23 per cent for the initial quarter of 1935 as compared with the corresponding period of 1934 the April figures are even more encouraging said L Seth Schnitrnon chief statistician of the corporation The April residential total reached 000000 in the 37 eastern states as against only for April 1934 and 209000 for March of this year The April total for housing facilities was about onethird of the total contract volume for all classes of construction This also is a significant development since in the recent past residential building has formed far smaller a proportion of the consumption volume than is customary for this branch of activity The total volume of construction in the 37 eastern states approximated for April This contrasts with for April of last year Of the April total this year a far greater amount was private con struction than was true of either the March total or for April of last year This too is an encouraging note In fact private construc tion contracts during April were higher than for any other month since the beginning of 1932 New business at the lumber mills has shown progressive increases for three con secutive weeks with the unrevised total vol ume booked during the last week of April the heaviest of any week since November 1933 Shipments were in excess of those of ony week since July 1933 production was heaviest since September 1934 Orders were 32 per cent above those of corresponding week of 1934 shipments were 26 per cent in excess of those reported for the 1934 division ibte solo Diclc Barker Jn trombone solo Results in the B flat clarinet competition in which Bill Pappas of Mason City was entered
