Credit Expert Declares
Earnings Will Be Good,
Even if Under 1937.
By EDWARD C. STONE.
In his monthly business review re
ceived today by the Washington Asso
ciation of Credit Men, Henry H.
Heimann, executive manager of the
national association, predicts that 1938
will be “far from an unsatisfactory
business year.”
Predicting that the early months of
1938 will seem dull compared with the
feverish activities that characterized
the beginning of 1937, he forecasts
that earnings in 1938 on the whole
should be satisfactory even if they
do not reach the totals of 1937.
Business men must realize, he con
tinues, that in at least one out of
every five years efforts should be
centered largely on conserving capital
as distinguished from seeking to in
crease capital.
The year 1938 will see an abundance
of credit at exceptionally low rates.
As a result of excesses in 1937, there
may be an increase in failures during
the first half of 1938, but this should
level off later in the year, he believes.
He tells Washington credit men
that the real need at the moment is
an immediate stimulation in three
lines of industry. The first is the
rajjproad industry, which needs in
creased income for equipment buying
and maintenance programs.
The second is a satisfactory solution
of the Government-utilities impasse
and the third helpful factor would be
an upturn in housing operations. The
latter is on the long-range side, but
would be felt before the end of next
year if Congress would act at once on
special legislation, Mr. Heimann
concludes.
Building Report Shows Turn.
Bankers and real estate leaders here
■were much pleased with the latest re
port by the F. W. Dodge Corp. that
construction projects undertaken in
November were 20 per cent ahead of
October and 4 per cent ahead of last
year. This report, the survey said, rep
resents a reversal of the declining
trend in publicly financed construc
tion, which had been prevailing since
last July.
Total contracts for the first 11
months of 1937 amounted to $2,703,
672,400, as fcompared with $2,475,600,
300 for the corresponding 11 months
of last year, representing a gain of 9
per cent. When segregated by classes
of construction, this gain amounted to
17 per cent for residential building,
19 per cent for non-residential build
ing and 38 per cent for public utilities.
Construction of public works during
this period declined 20 per cent.
Air Conditioning Finished.
Installation of a complete year
around air-conditioning system in the
new marble office building of the Fed
eral Reserve Board was announced to
day by L. R. Boulware, vice president
and general manager of Carrier Corp.,
Syracuse, N. Y.
The installation marks another step
In the chain of air conditioning Gov
ernment buildings in the Capital.
Other air-conditioned buildings he
listed are Supreme Court, United
States Capitol, House of Representa
tives, United States Senate, Depart
ment of Labor and Interstate Com-*
merce Commission.
The equipment is designed to pro
vide summer, winter, fall and spring
comfort, Mr. Boulware explained.
Depository Proves Popular.
President George W. White of the
National Metropolitan Bank is much
pleased with the reception accorded
the "instantaneous depository” which
was installed in the lobby about a
month ago. Use of the depository,
which is intended to be a time saver
for the patrons, is becoming more and
more popular, he said this noon.
The depositor takes or sends his:
money to the bank in $n envelope, !
with the ticket all filled out. The !
envelope is put through a slide, just
as one would mail a letter, and drops
down into a safe. The amount of the
deposit is credited to the patron's ac
count and he receives a notice to this
effect in the next morning’s mail.
The plan, of course, is used by de
positors who do not need to get
change from the tellers and is said to
be particularly helpful on Govern
ment pay days, when there are long
lines at the tellers’ windows.
Trade Sentiment Improving.
Despite the continued downtrend of
Industrial activity, business senti
ment during the past week or two has
taken a turn for the better, says the
United Business Service in its current
report. Contributing factors are the
unexpectedly good showing being
made by retail trade, the moderate
rally in security prices and a firmer
tone in principal commodity markets.
Aided by the pick-up in holiday buy
ing, most retailers are making good
headway in reducing surplus inven
tories. Fill-in orders are heavier, and
buying of early spring goods is gaining
impetus, although emphasis continues
to be on low priced quick-turnover
merchandise.

erating & Warehousing Corp. have de

NEW YORK. Dec. 20— Industrial
stocks took their cue from the steels
in today's market and put on one of
the best rallies in several weeks.
While gains at the best ran to 4
or more points among favorites, late
cashing of profits and a sprinkling
of year-end tax selling served to cut
down top marks at the close. Dealings
were lively for a time In the morning,
but the pace slowed later. Transfers
approximated 1,400,000 shares.
With talk of rearmament taking
hold of speculative imaginations, buy
ing wah concentrated mainly in stocks
of those companies that stand to bene
fit If the Government steps up its
spending for war materials.
The market was not particularly
disturbed by the fourteenth consecu
tive week’s drop In steel mill opera
tions, although leaders slipped a bit
when it was officially estimated pro
duction this week would be off 3 9
points at 23.5 per cent of capacity, a
new low since October 15, 1934. The
decline was due principally to holiday
shut-downs.
Market sentiment was buoyed to
some extent by further forecasts the
lengthy business recession may be
touching bottom.
Shares prominent on the upside in
cluded United States Steel, Bethelem,
Douglas Aircraft, Boeing, Wright
Aeronautical, Anaconda, American
Smelting, Eastman Kodak. Johns
Manville. Westinghouse. Allied Chem
ical, Du Pont, International Harvester,
United States Gypsum. Allis Chalmers,
International Mercantile Marine and
Air Reduction.
American Tobacco ’B" turned
rather soft, and rising difficulties
were encountered by Commercial In
ventment Trust, Macy and United
States Smelting.
