HIGHER PRICES HELP BUSINESS
REPORTS RAPID MARKETING
A Fairly Good Increase in Number
Of Men Employed Was Noted '
By Reaarve Bank
Washington. Stimulated activity in
Important industries, resulting from
rapid marketing of agricultural prod
ucts during October made noticeable
the beginning of Improvements
throughout the country, the federal
reserve board declared In Its monthly
review of general business and finan
cial conditions. ' "
Higher prices realized by farmers
for tobacco and cotton, and heavy
s'ales of cereals abroad, the review
asserted, has brought them into the
market for purchases, of leasonable
goods with a "corresponding benefit to
trade in the producing regions.
"Some distinctly encouraging,-, ele
ments" are to be noted in the general
business situation, the review contin
ued. The outlook in the textile in
dustries was said to be better, for,
whe uncertainity of the future of
cotton prices has led some textile
nmnfacturers to hold off, buying has
been more pronounced during . the
past few weeks;
Except in' a limited degree the re
view declared, basic manfacturing and
structural industries have not shown
the influence of reviving demand, al
though Increases both In production
and. in unfilled orders in Iron and steel
was regarded as "of first rate import-'
ance, as marking the Jurn from the
Prices Become Stable.
Prices apparently have attained a
substantial degree of stability, th re
view stated'. A fairly general Increase
id the number t men employed was
noted, although . unemployment Is re
ported as continuing as a serious ele
ment jn the existing industrial situ
ation. The' large amount of unemployment
prevailing, according to the board, has
had Us effect on the retail' trade; pur
chases for the most part being con-"
fined to essentials.
