Women's Apparel Market More
Active as Season Progresses
Retailers Ready lo Purchase
Large Quantities of Hand
Picked Goods; DressCom
bine Removed in Trade
Retailers from all over tin* countrj
are registering a fairly (rood demand
for women's spring and summer gar
mer.is in lire local wholesale market.'?.
All factors in tiie trade report n
broadening of demand, but it appears
to bo keener on the lower priced mer
chandise than on the more expensive
Wash drosses airead) am imginning
to move in good quantities, although
the retail season for them has not yet
begun. Manufacturers are offering
more attractive styles in this type of
garment than for many seasons past
arid prices are considerably lower than
a year ago. In some quarters of the
market dresses of imported ginghams
are being offered as low as $30 a
dozen whole! ale.
Several of the larger retailers
throughout tho country are in the
market for ?nri/e quantities of both
men's and women's apparel with which
to conduct early spring .sales. These
stores are offering cash, in many ernes,
for large lot* at low prices. Although
buyers are having no difficulty in ob?
taining plenty of merchandise, th?
broader market has curtailed much of
the price cutting and underselling that
usually characterizes a dull period in
the garment trades.
Efforts are being made in ?he dress
industry, it is rumored, to form a large
combination of small contractors to
deal directly with retailers and to
itandardizo and finance production in
such a manner as to ?>iiminat<-, the
forced selling that results when the
small factors in the trade are unable
to properly finance themselves
The commercial money markets show
little change. Demand for new money
with which to carry on current pro?
duction and merchandising is light,
which results in small offerings of
commercial paper. Prime paper is
discounting at l'a and 41*** per cent.
Some less desirable paper discounts
at 4\ per cent.

Many of tho upstate manufacturers
of kriitte?] underwear are now produc?
ing knitted cloths for outerwear, or
complete outerwear garments, such as
knitted jackets, skirts, knickerbockers,
etc. In a few of the mills machinery
used for the making- of underwear is
used for producing the new fabrics ?>r
garments, while in others special ma?
chinery has been installed.
Central Leather Mus Deficit
The quarterly report of tin* Centra!
Leather Company for the period ended
March 31, 1922. showed a deficit of
$230,217, after taxes and inter?s!
charges. This compared with a,deficit
of $3,961,579, for the corresponding
period i'i ?921. The profit and loss as

Fancy Furs Dull
Sable and Fisher Weak at Auc?
tion Sale Here
A 'air demand ?ir.d good price? for
'-'a p " furs, but weak prices for most
fancy furs, was registered yesterday at.
the second flay of the New York A ;
?ion i'nmnany's sale of raw fu-* at the
Sable and fisher, two of the better
class fancy furs, .showed dechr.es from
open market prices, with but little in?
terest among bidders. Chinchilla, ?in
. other fancy fur, was fairly steady.
. Prices for otter and heaver, which are
largely used for trimming, were good,
and skunk prices were about fair, with
interest shown only in the best lots.
As on the opening day. bidder?
showed a disposition to avoid specula
tive advances and a desire to obtain
goods a-, cheaply as possible, regard?
less of the effect of low prices ;.p in
:iic general market. Consielerable buy?
ing back of furs by shippers, who had
put them in the sale because bidding
failed to bring prices up to the ?hip
' ?ler's ideas, was apparent to experi
| enced observers at the sale.
Small Reaction t4> Prie?* Rises
Recent price advances in primary
cottons and woolen and worsted goods
have failed to disturb buyer- to any
extent. Some lines of worsted goods
have been advanced this week, the aver?
age increase figuring around 10 cents
?i yard. Although the demand for
worsted goods is growing better, il*.e
worsted business is still fa.- from satis
; factory. In the opinion of some of the
! conservative mill men the new demand
for worsted goods has been over esti
. mated in some quarters. In genera!.
however, demand seems to be gradually
i switching from the low qualities to
the belter fabrics. Mens clothing
buyers for retail shops who have in?
spected manufacturers' fall lines re
porf a better quality than was appar?
ent last year, although prices ar" the
same or under those of a year u;e.
Shoe Orders Increase
Orders for women's high-grade
received by one of the prominent
Brooklyn manufacturers from its road
, salesmen on Monday Were the largest
in volume that the firm '-as received
in any ?ingle day in the last ten
months, according to the general man?
ager nt" the concern. "Whether th:>
?s a forerunner of a real revival of
demand for high-grade footwear or
not, I am unable to determine," he said,
"but we have had a great, number of
inquiries regarding our line recently
from retailers who have been handling
! cheaper makes of shoes."
Colored Shoes Selling
Colored leather shoes, introduced as
a novelty for spring and summer wear,
: are meeting with a good reception from
? women, according to local retailers.
The -;ioes are made of colored side
leather, or smoked elk, as it is known
in the trade. The leather is one of
the lower qualities ?mi the shoes in
the main are retailed at prices under
. $10 a pair. Most of the colored shoes
come in sport models for matching up
tweed and homespun suits or skirts.
1 Leather soles are given the preference
over rubber soles. A few models of
the .sandal type have been ready sellers,
according to one retailer.

The Yarn Clearing House, 110 East
