TEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 7 1936 DELAYED SPRING SLOWS BUSINESS Usual Seasonal Upturn Not Yet Arrived, Says Iowa Trade Expert. IOWA CITY, (jp)--Delayed spring weather has probably been the deciding factor in the decline in state and national business in place cf the usual seasonal upturn at this time of year, Prof. George R. Davies of the University of Iowa, said Tuesday. Professor Davies pointed nut in figures released Tuesday in his monthly business digest that farm prices and residential building permits are the only major lines of business to register gains in the last month. His survey revealed that life insurance sales declined 24.2 per cent, railroad carloadings 30 per cent, bank check transactions 20 per cent, and industrial payrolls 2.2 per cent. "The declines might be expected from the inclement weather generally." the university business expert stated, "while floods have caused setbacks .in certain areas.'' Professor Davies stated that despite the present lag- in business recovery, "the volume of forward orders and the outlook of business leaders indicates a renewal of activity within a few weeks. The greatest factor against the favorable outlook is the lack of gain in consumption, but this is not Serious for the present. "The general price level and the cost of living have apparently lost the impetus arising from earlier wage increases and other inflationary tendencies," he said, "and are now leveling off or declining. It is expected that further advances will occur, but fears of a rapid inflation have been allayed." · 742-Pound Mother Rests on Laurels and Props Here and There Mrs. Gertrude Karn, 742 pound Slircveport, La., mother, is wreathed in smiles as she greets her four day old daughter, Martini Ellis.
