This, of course, has been completely borne out by events. Now for 1937. Barring the im pact of foreign war, the effect, of which lie- one can predict because we do not know how It will come about, the business curve .should, rise throughout the year.'

WASHINGTON, Dec. 29 (UP) — Secretary of Agriculture Henry A. Wallace loday apportioned $200,000,000 In federal grants In aid to slates for, road improvements and elimination of grade crossings. Tlie appbrllonmcnts will become available . for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 1937. They consist of $125,000,000 for a federal aid highway system; $25,000,000 for farm-to-market roads .and 550,000,000 for elimination of grade crossings. Wallace also apportioned $2,500,000 for 'construction of main roads Uirougli public Inmfc, non tax. able Indian lands or other reservations other than nallonal forests. He previously had apportioned $15,000,000 for this work begun in 1930.

Pontiff's -Condition Now Admitted al Vatican to Be Giave. Skilled Labor Shortage Luonis Employment will increase. The *< year will probably see what has the appearance of' a shortage in the skilled trades. This will bj more apparent than real. Up to now large numbers, of skilled workers .on WPA jobs hesitate to leave for jobs In private Industry, enough liiey pay better wages, because they have felt no assurance of permanence about these jobs. The WPA authorities can do something to relieve this situation, by setting uu nn efficient employment ina oVl in- ery and obtaining for Workers the necessary imormauon the permanence oi Ihe jobs offer- j.™j" ed. In some lines the shortage w r ill be real because unions and mills have discontinued during the de- ; pression their apprentice-recruiting ! lor displacements. There will be plenty of unskilled labor available. Tiie rolls of the WPA ought to be reduced substantially during the year. But there is little prospect of much reduction in pure relief rolls, since they are now made np largely of line m ployables. Several Threats To Boom Appear . There arc some dangers, some . threats ahead. One of these is rising prices. These are making themselves felt now in the commodity industries. They will, if not checked, halt the whole recovery movement and ultimately send us into n reverse. But this will not happen this year, though it may well slacken the pace of recovery in the construction Industry. Tlie other menace is labor troubles, it is difficult lo believe that there will not be a steel strike nnd, perhaps, a soft coal strike. Tills will be a titanic struggle if it develops. There may be trouble in the automobile industry. Labor troubles will probably make their appearance in other mass production industries. This will be fostered by rising retail prices, by the drive of Ihe C. I. O. to organize the' mass production industries and the appearance of skilled labor shortages. » These labor troubles ought nol . lo halt the recovery movement, but VATICAN . - CITY, Dec. . 2!)
