Raymond, twin brother of Robei Hutson, has kept the bull deep i enemy territory during the entire 19J season with his punts. He suffcre a badly bruised leg in the Little Roc *' game. "Raymond's inactivity will leave i liawcrlcas as far as punting i.s cor corned," Dunawuy said. "We haven't got a man on the squad capable of handling punting as he has." Dunaway found little joy in his preparations for the Hope game. Virgil Meroney, first string fullback, .suffered a broken collarbone in the Georgia game last week and will not play football ugain. Buck Forsylhc, reserve end, slipped in the shower in - Atlanta, und i-ut his foot, and "Fuzzy" Watts, reserve guard, who has been out of the last several ganie.s bccnuse of u serious leg injury, also will be on the sidelines.

However, many manufacturers have enough orders on hand to insure present operations for the remainder of the year and, in some cases, well into 1940. The generally higher rate of activilies in manufacturing plants, at mines and elsewhere has resulted in a marked improvement in tho employment situation, the bank asserted. Rclail distribution continued lo increase at a eomcwhut better than seasonal rate.
