Gains in Both Exports and
Imports Shown for Fourth
Consecutive Month.
By the Associated Press.
April gains in both exports and im
ports—the fourth consecutive month
to show increases over last year—were
reported today by the Commerce De
partment.
Imports Increased more than exports,
however, to produce an April import
surplus of (8,947,000. It was the third
successive month in which the United
States has bought more than it has
sold.
The run o( heavier buying resulted
In an import surplus of (12.414,000 for
the first four months of the year,
against an export surplus of (21,229,000
in the first third of 1935.
Compared with April of last year, ex
ports last month were 18 per cent and
imports 19 per cent larger. For the
first four months of this year, com
pared with the same in 1935, exports
gained 12 per cent and imports 17
per cent.
April exports, which usually drop 6
per cent from March, were only 1 per
cent smaller this year, while imports,
which normally recede about 3 per
cent, were 2 per cent larger. April
exports were $193,490,000. against im
ports of $202,437,000.
In April, 1935, exports were $164,
151.000 and imports $170,500,000,
The Commerce Department noted
that while exports of a fewr agricul
tural products had continued to run
behind last year, “a wide range of
such exports have shown substantial
improvements.”
Cotton exports increased from $21,
796.000 to $22,764,000; tobacco ex
ports went up from $3,955,000 to $5.
747,000. Exports of fodders and feed,
vegetables and preparations, fruits
and nuts and lard, were other farm
products to show gains.
Most of the larger export gains,
however, were tn non-agricultural
products, including petroleum, metal
manufactures, machmery, electrical
apparatus, chemical products and tex
tile manufactures.
The increase in imports over April
last year was due chiefly to gains in
cane sugar, cured rubber, hides and
skins, furs, unmanufactured wool,
paper base stocks, lumber, cocoa and
whisky and other spirits.

UPWARD IN WEEK
Retail Sales Gain More
Evenly—Wholesale Pace
Shows Expansion.
By tfcc Associated Press.
NEW YORK. May 22.—Indications
of a renewal of the forward move
ment of trade were disclosed today In
the weekly review by Dun & B-ad
street.
‘‘Checking what had appeared to be
the commencement of a seasonal
slackening, there was a resumption of
the forward movement In many trade
branches during the week." it was
stated.
"The steady expansion of consumer
buying, in spite of the cool weather in
some sections, was accompanied by
more evenness in the gain in retail
sales for the various districts of the
country.
Records Increase.
"Buying at wholesale was at a more
active pace, complemented by the
growing volume of records for early
Summer goods. Instead oi extending
the recent gradual recession, indus
trial operations turned upward in
many divisions. * * *
“Higher temperatures whicn pre
vailed during most of the week ac
celerated retail distribution, with the
heterogeneous demands benefiting
nearly all departments. • • *
“Although virtually all of the cities
reported a rise in distribution from
that of the week preceding, the per
centage gain over last year's was
shortened, in some instances, giving
greater uniformity for all districts.
Taking the country as a ^hole, how
ever, the estimated volume of retail
sales was more than the 1935 com
parative by 8 to 12 per cent."
Sharp Gain Anticipated.
Based on orders which have been
received by principal wholesale houses,
a heavier buying season is indicated
for early Summer than in several
years, it was stated.
“In many (wholesale) branches
buying thus far In May has been at
the best rate for the month since
1930.” the review found, “witn the
increase in some items running up to
25 to 30 per cent cover last year’s
bookings."

THE young man of today who cannot meet
this demand sometimes finds that interviews
for better positions are hard to get. The trend is
toward men with college or technical training.
Thoughtful parents who want their children to
compete on at least an equal footing with their
own generation are budgeting incomes and
building savings accounts with the definite pur
pose of education in mind.
Just a small part of your income, saved regu
larly each week, assures the education your
child will need.
