LOCALIZED CANDY
SALES SHOW GAIN
Change in Marketing Policy
Indicated by Report of
Commerce Department.
Candy manufacturers of the United
States are lending more and more ef
fort to concentrating sales in their
Own territory.
A survey just completed by the
Commerce Department discloses that
33 per cent of the 1,335,600,000 pounds
of candy marketed during 1930 was
supplied by makers within the State
where it was consumed. This com
pares with the preceding year's record
of 30 per cent of the total supplied by
local sources.
This increase, it is pointed out, while
amounting to only 3 per cent of the
Nation's total confectionery consump
tion, represents a 10 per cent gain in
the quantity locally produced and con
sumed. Furthermore, it was said, it
reverses a movement in the opposite
direction which has been noticed m
recent years
The department view's the trend to
ward larger scale sales as an exam
pie oi me application oi results oi
Nation-wide market and cost research
to the problem of more efficient mar
ketings and elimination of distribu
tion waste.
A recent cost study of the industry
made by the department emphasized
the possibilities of waste in over-ex
tended selling. Firms exploiting ter
ritory at long distances from the point
of manufacture were generally found
to be realizing unsatisfactory profits,
while in numerous instances losses
were being incurred.
Many items, it pointed out, owing
to the nature of pack and the size
of order, showed losses in distant ter
ritories, whereas the same Item simi
larly packed would show profit in
nearby territory. Freight and express
charges of the candy makes studied
had an average range of 1.3 per cent
to 4 1 per cent of gross sales, whereas
In some territories such charges were
found to run as high as 18 per cent
Of sales.

Heavy Offerings of Railroad
Issues Drag Market
Down.
BY F. H. RICHARDSON.
Special Dispatch to The Star.
NEW YORK, December 9.—The bond
market came under heavy pressure to
day and prices dropped rapidly to new
lows for the bear market. Trading was
in heavy volume.
Apart from a few foreign issues af
fected by special factors, the whole list
opened lower. While expected, the
omission of the New York Central com
mon dividend, when viewed in the light
of dividend reductions or omissions by
five other railroads, apparently had not
been sufficiently discounted and there
were heavy offerings of rail bonds.
While New York Central bonds were
most actively traded—there are $1,
049,000,000 of them outstanding—they
were no weaker than other issues. New
York Central refunding 5s made a new
record low, off more than 2 points on
the day. So did the refunding 4V2S,
the debenture 4s and 6s and the con
solidated 4s. West Shore 4s, a bond
guaranteed by the New York Central,
declined 4 points to a new bottom for
the bear market. Virtually all other
rail bonds followed the decline. Even
the high-grade Atchison general 4s
were off a point to a new low. Norfolk
<5c Western 4s. Union Pacific first 4s
and Chicago, Burlington & Quincy is
sues were not exempted. Great North
prn 7s Inst 2*4 nnints
In the lesser rated list, Missouri-Pa
cific 5s lost 1 to 3 points. Nickel Plate
4 Vis, 5 Vi* and 6s slid 2 to 3 points.
Erie 5s, International Great Northern
adjustments, 8t. Paul adjustments, St.
Paul 5s, Chicago & Northwestern 4:Vis,
Baltimore <fc Ohio convertible 4Vis, Al
leghany Corporation 5s and Rock Is
land convertible 4 Vis were all at new
minimum prices.
Bonds were lower at the opening,
with the exception of a few foreign
dollar issues.
Japanese dollar descriptions were a
point higher and German government
bonds were fractionally higher. The
market viewed as constructive the
drastic measures instituted by the
Reich government to attain financial
stability.
In the domestic list, rails were under
pressure The omission and reduction
of dividends by the Missouri-Pacific
and the Texas & Pacific started the
lower trend. Missouri-Pacific 5s were
off a point. Erie 5s, Nickel Plate 4>/2s,
International Great Northern adjust
ments and other speculative rails were
all lower. Industrials such as United
States Rubber 5s, Dodge Brothers 6s
and Goodyear 5s were heavy. United
States Government long-term Issues
were steady after Tuesday’s weakness.

Automobile industry Expect
ed to Be One of First
in Recovery.
BY BRADLEY W. TRENT.
Special Dispatch to The Star.
NEW YORK, December 8.—While
the basic industries of the country con
tinue to report somewhat clouded busi
ness horizons, here and there a ray of
sunshine cuts through the shadows.
Although United States Steel Cor
poration is expected to report a drop
in unfilled tonnage Thursday, the steel
industry shows signs of improvement.
The American Iron and Steel Institute
reported for November the first im
provement in ingot production since last
March, which caused plants to operate
an average of 30.01 per cent of capacity
compared with 27.76 per cent in Oc
Wire Price Advance.
The rise of $1 a ton In most wire
products for the first quarter of 1932
Is now quite general, checking a price
decline of many months In steel and
related products. Judged by reports of
increasing specifications, from United
States Steel as well as others, con
sumers’ inventories are unusually small
at the moment. Smaller automotive
buying and the notable absence of pur
chases from the railroads during No
vember more than offset increased
specifications elsewhere, with the re
sult to be seen in United States Steel's
unfilled tonnage figures.
Until the financial plight of rail
roads is relieved little buying can be
expected from them, but some lines of
the automotive industry will have to
increase raw material requirements dur
ing 1932. The truck manufacturers in
sist that trucks have been repaired and
patched so much in 1931 that many will
have to be replaced during the coming
year, and this also applies to passenger
cars.
The automobile industry is bound to
be one of the first lines to reflect a
general quickening of trade. The 1931
production of 2,500,000 cars is less than
normal and reflects the extent to which
buying power has been held back.
Dealers' stocks are small. The used
car situation is in a good statistical po
sition. On the basis of present pro
duction schedules December output
should be about two-thirds larger thafi
the 66,000 cars produced during No
vember. If the new models meet with
a favorable reception, automotive out
put will turn upwards in the next few
months and lift with It many allied
lines.
The chemical industry, another of the
great basic businesses of the country,
presents a confused picture that will
clear as soon as general trade picks up.
In appraising chemicals, however, it
must be remembered that some of the
price reductions now being announced
for 1932 reflected belated price adjust
ments to general commodities at
changes that would have been made
long ago if these products had not been
sold on an annual basis.
Alcohol Advance Expected.
In industrial alcohol a general ad
vance is expected, owing to mergers and
agreements against ruinous price cut
ting and as a result of official regula
tions. Calcium chloride, widely used in
laying dust on roads, in refrigeration
and in the production of anti-freezing
solutions, will be 50 cents to $2 a tens
lower in 1932.
