H--Business n the- Pittsburgh district swung upward in the first week of January and regained almost all of the losses recorded during the last two sveeks of 1939, the Bureau of Business Research, University of Pittsburgh, reported . The bureau's weekly index, adjusted for seasonal change, advanced to 86.0 per cent of the 1923-25 average from the 84.4 per cent mnrk ot which it was left at the end of the year. In line with the past, erratic changes were shown during the first week of the New Year, however. The spreading rate ol the steel increased sharply, and as a result the adjusted volume of production reflected a substantial increase although coal and electric power production failed to make their usual seasonal gain. Originating freight s h i p m e n t s mounted appreciably, but the volume of trndo decreased due, principally, to a slump in new motor car registrations and a slight decline in department store sales.

There had not been any unpleasant feeling, nor any .unkind words spoken. I had no idea of Mr. McCormick leaving my employment,, nor having some one take his place, (As Has been told). Mr. McCormick states in his advertisement that his ambition to go in business for him self, is his own admission for leaving me. Any other statements are untrue and unwarranted. I am expecting to carry on my business in the same dignified manner as I have in the past, and trust that the same confidence that has . been placed in me by the many families I have had the honor to serve in the past will not be lessened in the future.
