Household furnishing and appliance sales, however, went up. Employment continued high In the Southeast, and manufacturing plant.-; had an average of 1.037,000 workers for the first 11 months of the year. Sraltered layoffs occurred, but the only industry lo shou- decrease as a whole was the chemical, because of reductions at the Oak Ridge. Tenn., atomic plant. Farm Prosperity Continues Cotton textile employment and cotton consumption started the year at a high rate of activity, fell In the Summer, and rose almost to 1946 levels in the final months. Monthly cotton consumption usually ran live per cent below corresponding 1946 periods, a decline traced to the return of peacetime market conditions. The highest increase in employment came In the iron and steel Industry ot Alabama. Georgia and Tennessee, where 71.300 workers represented a 19.3 per cent rise over 1946, and Alabama's pvoduc- tion of steel-ingots for nine months •tVas 33 per cent higher. ™ Farm price and production records were broken for the seventh consecutive year, but the ' report pointed out that in this country, usually a land or abundance, domestic food stockpiles arc at record low levels. Major crops were harvested from 29,700,000 acres in the six states, 1.4 per cent more than in the previous year. "The next year if likely lo be . crucial, not only for the Immediate future but perhaps fr a long time to come." the bank said. "Whether the transition to a more solidly based prosperity can be mode without mishap is a story that may possibly be toid In 1948."
