Sales declined more rapidly than inventories in all branches of activity last year, a survey by Eun and Brndstreet. Inc., of reports from 10.000 manufacturing, wholesaling and retailing companies disclosed. Dun and Bradslreet announced that total dollar sales of reporting manufacturers were off 12 per cent, wholesalers 10 per cent and retailers 8 per cent At the close of 1938 these same concerns showed a contraction of inventories from a year earlier as follows: Manufacturers 8 per cent, wholesalers 8 per cent and retailers 5 per cent. These sales trends are probably more optimistic than would be indicated by Tax Funds in Iowa DES MOINES, (/P)--The Iowa louse moved swiftly Wednesday "n adding its approval to a senate measure devised to curb cigaret bootlegging while at the same time adding an estimated $300,000 yearly tax revenue to the state jeneral fund. Voting 92 to 5, the lower chamber passed the measure by which manufacturers and distributors of cigarets will affix the one-mill per cigaret tax stamps before the commodity is sent into the state for retail sale. Under the present act retail distributors place the stamps on each pack. Will Increase Revenue Proponents said the plan will increase Iowa's revenue from this source from $1,800,000 yearly to an estimated $2,600,000, by curbing the bootlegging of cigarets from non-tax points outside of the state. An assortment of amendments applied to the senate proposal during the two days it was considered require senate concurrence which supporters said would be quickly forthcoming. The cigaret bill and a companion measure, extending present vending permits until July 4 when the new law becomes effective, passed the house without debate. Prohibit Vending Machines One major change made in the present law prohibits conlinued use of cigaret vending machines. Representative Oscar Johnson (D) of Kanawha, house sponsor of the act, said it was aimed at "those persons who bring untaxed cigarets into Iowa by Ihe case lot." Amendments added by the house Wednesday prohibit retail sales from cars or trucks, legalize gift packages, provide for revocation of permits of distributor or wholesaler who sells at retail without a retail permit, to require invoices on cigarets handled by Iowa distributors lor sale out o£ Iowa, to permit the state treasurer to refuse licenses to persons known to be undreliable, to provide for hearing before the tre surer in county where sale violation occurred on move for license revocation. Leaves Some Leeway As passed the act left some leeway for the person coming into Iowa with untaxed fags. One clause permits the legal possession of 40 such cigarets. However, another clause permits the fining o£ a person using cigarets which should be taxed. At the rate of tax o£ 1 mill per cigaret, packages of 20 are taxed at the rate ot 2 cents. The house also passed another senate bill prohibiting the payment of tuition to a high school outside of Iowa for pupils whose actual residence is nearer an Iowa school. After tangling over insertion of a publication clnuse lo be "paid for" by the bill's sponsors, Ihe house passed a senate measure liberalizing the investment program of building and loan as- socialions. Representalive Dewey Goode (R) Bloomfield declared he ob- jecled "lo individuals coming in here and getting laws of a general nature passed by paying for the publication--it's a bad practice." The publication clause was amended to allow the state pay the costs as customary and the measure then sailed through, 95 to 4. A house measure to assure that policemen in larger cities will always be paid, whether the city's general fund runs dry or not, was stymied a second time Wednesday by opponents o£ increased taxes.

Puts Estimate on Unknown Oil Resources for United States STATE COLLEGE, Pa.. W)-Dr. Sylvian Pirson said Wednesday that continuing new discoveries and technical advances in recovering petroleum made it "quite possible" to estimate the nation's unknown oil reserves at perhaps "a hundred billion barrels." In charge of petroleum and natural gas engineering at Pennsylvania State college, Dr. Pirson said known and proved crude oil reserves amount to 14 billion barrels, sufficient to supply present annual demands of 1,200,000,000 barrels for 10 or II years. Recalling that two decades ago reserves in the United Sta'tes were placed at between 6.7 and 9.1 billion barrels, Dr. Pirson said production in recent years has been from new discoveries rather than from reserves and added: "At present the industry has doubled its working stocks and there is no sign yet of diminishing rate of oil discoveries, and little has been said of improved recovery techhic."

Sales Decrease IS Per Cent This estimate placed 1938 sates of manufacturers as S31.604.000.000 or 15 per cent below 1937; wholesalers at $20,144.000.000, B decline of 13 per cent; and retailers at 535.553.000,000. a decrease of 11 per cent. There was no adjustment made of inventory figures. The low point in inventories probably was reached during the fall of 1933. Dun and Bradstreet concluded on the basis of available monthly data. The agency noted 1hat the increase in holdings near the close of the year undoubtedly colored the year-end comparisons and accounted, at least in part. lor the disclosure oC a smaller percentage decrease in stocks t h a n in sales. The survey showed that the estimated 1938 sales volume was lower than 19-16. ell as 1937. in each of three broad fields, hut that inventories were back at 1936 clo=inc levels only in the wholesaling rtivifion. Manufacturers* Inventories at the 1933 year end, estimated at SIO.939.000.fiOO. were If) per cent above the 1935 level and 2fi per cent above the 1933 year-end, The increase for this ^rovip over the three years was considerably greater than that shown by either wholesalers or in- d e p e n d e n t re la tiers. Inventories of the latter expanded J6 per cent between the close of 19M and 1938. while -.vholcsalcrs stocks at the close of 1938 were 14 per cent above 1935 and at about the same level as 192$. Chanced Trier LertI* Chanelnp price levels partly account for changes in dollar value of both sales and inventories. Dun and Bradstreet pointed out In the manufacturing divisions the average selling price for 1938 was about 8.9 per cent lower than in 1937. according to the wholesale price index of the bureau ol labor statistics so tha* the decline in the physical volume of poods sold by producers was less than the 15 per cent estimated drop in dollar sales. All of the 16 retail trades analyzed reported some loss in 1937 sales. Decreases ranged from 2 per cent for independent dru£ and variety stores lo as much as 27 per cent for motor vehicle dealers. The department store group was the only one of the Ifi to show a larger drop in stocks than in sales. Department stores and automobile rlca!er; \vi1h declines of 17 and 14 per cent respectively, hart the largest dc- crrnscs in inventories, contrasting with Rains of 2. 4 and 2 per cent reaislcred by varicty stores, fill ins stations and drug stores.
