TELEPHONE 57 Authorities Say Business Is Backed by Wide Gains Already Made. NEW YORK, Aug. 8. (/P)--Retail trade, backed by wide gains already achieved this year, is preparing for what some authorities believe will be the greatest forward drive of the recovery era. Conclusions of trade analysts are based on operations reports for this year and on forecasts coming into the financial district on the approaching fall and winter season. During the first half of 1935, retail dollar sales were some 6 per cent higher than for the first six months of last year. All major divisions reported universal gains with the exception of variety chains, where a large increase by one firm offset small losses from the previous year chalked up by three others. Weekly reports since July 1 have confirmed the upward trend of sales. The outlook for the remainder of this year, based on the favorable results shown in July and August, is described by some authorities as gratifying-. They ooint to increased buying power of the people in the cities jecause of rising industrial production, and they state that federal works relief program will add to the spending money of urban dwellers. Farm populations are counted on to contribute strength to the mounting retail demand because of the estimated 5 to 12.5 per cent increase in income for the entire year compared with 1934.
