This represents a rise of 3.1 per cent. The Digest is published by the bureau of business and economic research at the State University of Iowa. Gain Is Seasonal The state's increase in total manufacturing employment was primarily attributable to a sharp, seasonal increase in the number of workers employed in the canning industry, and to higher levels of employment in the farm equipment industry. Employment increases for these 2 industries accounted for 80 per cent of the total rise in Iowa factories for the period. » In addition, the dollar volume of check transactions in 11 principal cities of Iowa was higher in August than in July. This was contrary to the usual mid-summer pattern prevailing since 1039. The transactions, however, were still 4 per cent below the levels of a year ago. ' In the first quarter of 1949, Iowa's bank transactions slipped 13 per cent under the volume of the first quarter in 1948. At the same time, other areas in the 7th federal reserve district—covering parts of Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana and Michigan, as well as all of Iowa—experienced only a 1.8 per cent decline. Prices Slump Iowa's sharper drop was partly attributable to falling farm prices. Other areas in the district are more heavily industrialized, including such, centers as Chicago, Detroit, Milwaukee, Indianapolis and Gary. By August, check transactions in Iowa had picked up and were only 4 per cent under a year ago, while the entire 7th district's transactions were 2.2 per cent below last year. Department store sales in Iowa fared better than check transactions. At the end of 7 months of this year, daily sales were down only 3.3 per cent. Sales in the entire 7th district during the same period slipped 6.4 per cent. The production of electrical power was booming, not dropping, the Digest reported. Iowa's output was 12 per cent over 1048 during the first 7 months of this year. At the same time, electrical output in the nation was up only 4 per cent.
