Factories Going at Gait of 1929 November Equal to Best Month of Ban-. ^ •:••- ; ner.Yeqr ~., : WASHINGTON -</!>)- The, Federal •Reserve Board said Th'ursday night that during November factory production reached- the statistical equivalent of Ihc best month of 1929.. The Board's seasonally adjusted index of production rose last month to 125, best figure of 1929. The statisticians pointed out the .figure does not mean as much now us it did in 1929, because the index makes no allowance for increasing population and factory capacity. What it means is that certain key industries arc turning out about the same amount of goods now as they did in 1929. The reason the country is not as prosperous as then is that consumption of goods, capital investments and other economic factors arc not as favorable. The 125 index for November was the peak of a sensational upswing in factory production which started with a May level of 92. The index advanced to 98 in June. 101 in July, 103 in August, 111 in September, and 120 in October. In November last year, the rate was 103. Ridgdill Again Is ElectedAs Clerk W.O.W.
