PAGE SiX ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Retail Sales are Key To Economic Picture By SAM DAW8ON AP Business News Analyst NEW YORK (AP) — Reta sales will command the router o the stage the rest of this mont and the first half of October. How much consumers buy, anc especially what (hey buy. wi give a strong clue to the streiigt of the current economic upturn Unexpectedly high persona spending helped moderate (he last recession. Revival of purchases o durable goods, particularly big ticket ones, such as household ap pliances, give the present upturn a new lease on life when seemed to be faltering a year ago Lull Sales have withstood the sum mer lull. If they show vigor wi lithe coming of fall, merchants and dealers can count on new dollar records the rest of the year. Manufacturers can then plan production schedules with a more helpful eye on the chances of the longest and strongest since Work War II. Auto and appliance sales have been unusually strong for severa months. At the moment car sales may be turning weak, while the makers are bringing out the new models. How these catch on should be apparent next month Appliance sales have close ties with home building. Construction of housing units, especially apartments, has been strong- this year. Furnishing them has given a boost to appliance, furniture and similar sales. Confidence If this continues through the fall, the industries will be content to take the usual winter season of slack construction and skimpier furnishings sales in stride. But there is also a large replacement market for appliances and furnishings. This too has been seeing a modest boom. Consumers have been willing to spend, and to take on monthly payments, for new appliances or for more of them. They apparently have been confident present good times were here to stay for a time. . Economists will watch this market closely. When consumers start to retrench one of their first targets is in such big ticket items.
