If you must .modernize; renovate, repair, or build, let out your contracts NOW Extend Leases Now Tile same applies to rents. you have a favorable lease extend It NOW for a live-year period.

Anollii'r (iuoil Year on Farms Grain and collon prices depend on.the weather anil plantings, uns- ci^ on current acreage .estimates and barring drought, prices of Uicsc products should not be much higher, next December than they are loOay. Meat prices will edge upward for our livestock population Is near HID lowest point In years, i Dairy, egg, nnd poultry pilces will If,advance under the Impetus of hlgli- r -,producing costs during the first mlf. Good prices plus higher production should lift farm Income jctween 5 to 10 per cent during, the lew year Farm profits .will lie somewhat ess due to mark-ups in the prices if: products.which the farmer has 'o'buy. wllh farming continually more profitable, good land (now Ip 20 per cent over'the depression ow) will continue Its gradual'rise. This 'recovery fli agricultural prices Is a very bullish factor In the. business outlook bnt do not forget that It menus higher living costs In the city. Clollilng lo Cosl More Up to now, the cost 6[ living lias not been keeping pace w'lth Hie recovery in general business. Its advance lolals only 20 per cent against 75 per cent for industrial activity and 30 psr cent for retail prices Tills coming yeai the gap will narrow., I look for a. 5 to 8 per cent rise in living cosls against only as per cent gain in 1930. In the vanguard will be clothing price-tags They have lyen at sliiulillll for (he last thiee jcm but they will move ahead 8 to 12 up of selling prices or a cutting of profit nmraliis Sees Rising; I'riics Three years ago higher costs buying more government ~ , posits bonds The cycle repeats* Itsell over and over, again, building up bank deposits and ballooning the public would have meant slimmer profits This jear they will mean hlghei selling prices Tills holiday season we arc waving good-bye to a buyers' and emplojcrs' market For the first time since 1923, \ve shall see prices during 1937 contiolled by the seller and \\ages by His em- plojec Gone, temporarily at lear-', are the dajs \\hen orders \veie taken below cost simplj to keep the machinery from gelling rusty. Gone arc the dajs when iieople would uork for nothing simply to keep up their courage In addition to higher producing costs the Robinson-Palman Price Act, if strictly interpreted, will push distribution costs higher All this will be mirrored on wholesale and re I ail Invoices.

Every hour of effort and -every dollar of expense put into sellln: work in !937 will return what tw did in 1934 ana vdiat two mn> li 19391 I urge every salcsmanage and every salesman to \vork hi head of! in 1937 Get jour re wan for all tiie hard vvoik of the pas few- years Sunny selling class wil not last forever! Best Sales Areas Results vvill vary, of course, ii different sections. Bivck in 1933 m sales map slibwExI. only one gol( or excellent state and thlity blue or poor slates. Today this sam map shows twenty gold states n onlj two blue stales During th post two years, agricultural sec lions have been the salesmanager best bet. 'Although farmers shoul continue;to be good customers, th Industrial centers, particularly 1 the Northeast, Middle Atlantic, an Middle Western areas will agal come to the fore. Remember, however, that tf. Southeast,• Southwest, Pacific an Mountain areas are our fastest growing markqls. The- great op- jorlunltles for futitM growth and expansion are there! Keep this fact n mind when you! are making up /our sales quotas or when you are Investing in stocks and bonds. Jtomls at Celling Bond prices arc Hie most amazing factor in the security markets today, They are selling at (lie highest prices In history. Since June, 1032, the yield of Hie average bond has dropped from 1 1-2 per cent to 4 1-8 psr cent. The 1937 outlook for bonds depends almost entirely on ..the courss of money rates, My forecast Is that the latter will continue at current levels until Ihe government refunds all Its Bhort-tcrnv debt 'Into long-lcrm issues »t about 2 1-2 per cent. After lhat rates will depend more upon Ihe commodity prices and general business. Hence, I feel that present high jond prices cannot continue indefinitely. Those buying bonds during the coming twelve months must exercise extraordinary care and Judgment to. avoid getting tmrnsd! With higher money rales a certainty sooner or lalcr, 1 feel that the general bond market is today where the stock market Was Ir 1928, Hull Market Not Over The oullook for money rates Is a big Influence also on stock prices Pitiful returns on savings bank deposits, bonds, mortgages, and high- grade prcfcricds will not coax money out of good sound slocks. (The tremendous volume of money seeking investments (a billion dollar* In December alone) will prevent loo big a stock ''sell-on*. 1030 dividend increases and extras, plus posslblll es of still higher earnings ove 10 next few years, give well-clios n stocks added attraction to thos •ho want protection against a ris vg cost of living. In spite of the 30 per cent gall i slock prices during tlte las wclvc months, I believe that man Locks arc not over-valued. Ther my be periods of backing and fill ug, but tile basic trend Is still up ,'ard. The bull market which be an on July 8, 1OT2 mis not reache Is peak, • ' Good Selection Vital While the general pattern of th lock market should be upvvari n-Ices of Individual groups will vai ;i'catly. Good selection' will pa even greater premiums this yea Mian last. Biggest gains percent igcwise will be shown by the heav iHlustries.

Conclusion As 1937 opsns, most of the snarls rought on by tiie -depression have «c-n untangled, improvement Is idespread through all branches of idustry. Employment Is gradual- approaching normal once again, lie outlook for the coming twelve lonths Is bright. I predict that s we look back at this Now Year eason we will remember It a.s u lomenlous milestone in our busl- ess history. ; Whether we realize it or not.lo- jy, we are now placing n head- tone over.the 192*1-1930 depression orpsc and bundling up the 1037 1) prosperity . baby in swaddling lollies.

No War In 1937 No one can deny that the ovr seas situation is critical Europe and Asia today closely resemble the armed camps of 1912-14. -A" general war involving-Fascism vs Communism is inevitable; but a general European War will not come in 1931. There will.'continue'to be revolutions within nations: but no formal conflict between nations. European securities' will 1 remain unattractive although world ' trade will continue to increase slo'vyly. The gain, since 1933, now totals 30 per cent.

Currency Outlook The most hopeful foreign development or 1936 was (he "Gold Bloc' devaluation and three-cornered currency agreement between France England, and ourselves.

Secretaries, |t pages and tlerks scuiry about. Corridors long silent echo to voices raiaed in shouted greetings. It's nearly time for the nation's chosen :3d\makers to meet as the Seventy-fifth Congress. Then in the halls If S? •', ' * ' ' ' of the Capitol will be enacted scenes like those pictured here by the candid camera. Always sure of a crowd is the Congressional restaurant (left),, where food and opinions nre devoured with equal avidity. But, as in center picture, where vacant seats speak eloquently, the solons often play hookey, le.ive the business of routine law making to a desultory quorum that divides its attention between the rostrum, reading, and conversation, On days when important legislation is up for consideration, however, the chambers are packed (right) and the floor is abuzz .with challenging voices as members of the House detnand recognition. Then, too pages, clerks and secretaries bestir the'mselves to keep the mills of the law grinding smoothly.
