A a summer slow Down of course does no to go for All industries. Some expect to Boom this summer As never before. These Are the ones that Cater to Amer Ica on the move. Resents shipping airline and Auto industries anticipate their biggest summer. Gasoline dealers Busy at the moment raising prices expect to sell More than Ever before. But while vacation lists Are gadding their Home factories will be idling. The Index of Industrial production is due for a slide. In itself this wont mean too much. The question will be How much it recovers in late August and Early september. Most businessmen Are waiting to see the strength of the fall pick up before making any predictions on whether the Boom has topped out and a mild recession is coming. The Industrial production Index and several other statistical measuring Sticks wont be too indicative this summer for still another reason. For the next two months comparisons with year ago figures will have a much too Rosey Hue. That a because the big steel strike of last summer put Industrial production figures than at an unusually Low summer level. In Many places the strike also lowered retail sales figures. This happened not Only in steel making centers but in other Industrial communities where Lay offs were caused by steel shortages. As a result even with vacations and other summer Type slow Downs Industrial production and retail sales figures May look Good this summer if you merely compare them with last Summers abnormally Low totals and averages. Also Likely to complicate this Summers business picture is the muddied and confusing View of International affairs. Mrs Clyde Griffith funeral services for mrs. Clyde l.
