Cliapln believes tho nation IH entering tho new year In a stalwart fighting spirit that augurs well for advances In tho economic battle. Surveying business prospers, he said "panicky pessimism" had given way to "quiet determination." Ho pointed also to a number of favorable material factors, but regnrdPtl this change in nation's mood as the most encouraging sign for the new year. "By confining one's attention to a mero array of surface phases or to a succession of percentages," Chapln said, "ono would get a dark and not wholly accurate picture of conditions. "There are tendencies nnd concrete measures of the hopeful sort that appear to be more numerous than Is generally realized. Pessimism Vanishing "Hysterical, panicky pessimism, wherever It may have existed among our people, has been replaced by a more American attitude. The dominant mood today l« vastly calmer and more rational. Quiet determination rules. There Is keener receptivity to soundly constructive proposals." Other constructive factors cltod by the secretary wore: 1. Tho successful defense of the dollar and maintenance of Its stability has "strongly reinforced tho position of this country us the world's leading money market." 2. Tho United States has retained KM place ns the world's loading export nation. This year's cotton export* were the largest since 1928. 3. Industrial disputes havo been less frequent than during the boom. i. There Is a "tremendous latent or potential demand" for commodities. Much Industrial equipment needs to be replaced with more modern machinery. Stocks of goods In retail stores have been reduced. "Tills condition cannot continue Indefinitely. Buying will havo to Increase." Unfavorable Factors On tho unfavorable side of the ledger, (Jhnpln noted tho decline In employment nnd manufacturing, tho low price of farm crops, tho decline fn U. ,S. foreign trade to pre-war levels, tho drop In freight carloudlngs and retail sales during tho year.

FIVE-DAY WEEK FOUNDpBLE Newspaper Declares Practice Is Satisfactory in All Respects (Associated Press Leased Wire) NlfiW YORK. Dec. SI.—Tho Dally News reported editorially today dn the results of Its trial of tho five-day week' plan among UH unorganized em- ployes and concluded: "We Ihlnk our experience proves the feasibility of the five-day week in the newspaper business; and that many other business concerns would find It feasible for them, though perhaps with more pay reductions called for than the News found necessary." ; Eight Hundred Affected Tho newspaper pointed out that the five-day week trial affected about 801) employes, the remainder—about 1200— being affiliated with unions nnd hav-^ Ing their worklnff hours and conditions arranged for by blanket contract. Among the union employes, the printers have themselves applied the five-clay week, each printer donating his sixth working day to an unemployed printer. In Effect 90 Days The trial, which began three months ago, applied to the editorial, accounting find auditing, advertising and administration departments, and part of the circulation department. The News found during the summer that by staggering work, each employe could take a two weeks' vacation without extra help being employed. This led to tho decision to give the plan a trial at other times of the year. "We wondered," the_ News said today, "whether this schema couldn't be made to work all year so that everybody could have two consecutlvo days off u week. We havo found that It can." Men Work Harder "A little extra effort U put out for five days by workers in the advertising and accounting departments, with skeleton staffs maintained on the sixth day. On tho editorial side, departmental walls have broken down a bit, so that workers In one department can take up the slack here and there for workers In another." Tho News found that koy men in various departments were able to par- Tho \Varrcn-Pean-on paper con- i ticlpate in the five-day week without tinned; "We must choose between de- .tppreci/iblc loss of contact with events, flatten and reflation (mild inflation).

"Tho whole question centers in the velocity of circulation of money," he added. "Money doesn't flow like water, it Jumps like a grasshopper. It hops and stops, hops and stops. The question is how long does it stop In the checking nccounts." Deflation vs. Reflation tate the process If deflation Is to be tho path.
