For June Are Third
Best in History
Reach 173,212 Mark,
Against 124,618 in
Same 1939 Period
By the Associated Press.
NEW YORK. July 8.—Genera]
Motors Corp. announced today that
its sales to consumers in June were
the third best for that month in its
The company sold 173,212 cars
and trucks in the United States,
compared with 165,820 in May and
124.618 in June of last year.
Only in June of 1926, when the
total was 189,756, and in June of
1928. with a figure of 174,085, did
General Motors sell more cars to
the consumers than in June of this
Motor circles said the substantial
rise in consumer buying was pre
sumably due in part to the fact
there was a temporary slump in
business coincident with the tumble
of the securities markets in May and
to expectations in some quarters
that next year's models may be
somewhat costly because of the
effect of the armament program.
Sales to dealers in the United
States in last month were 151,661,
a substantial decline from the total
of 171,024 in May, as dealers re
duced their stocks, but were well
above 124,048 in June of last year.
Sales to dealers in the United
States in the first six months of
1940 were at a record for the history
of the company at 1,013.034, com
pared with 738.788 in the first half
of last year. The previous record
for first half sales to dealers was
in 1936, at 978.274.
Sales of cars and trucks to con
sumers in the United States in
first six months totaled 941,821,
compared with 700.461 in like 1939
Total sales to dealers in United
States and Canada plus overseas
shipments were 167.310 units in
June, against 185.548 in May and
139.694 in June 1939.

Special Dispatch to The Star.
NEW YORK. July 8— Railway
freight traffic is holding well above
1939 levels and has recently been
rising in better than seasonal fash
ion, according to the Financial
World, which states that the rail
roads are making the most of this
improvement with the best year in
! a decade well within reach.
‘‘For the first five months of 1940
the country's class I roads reported
aggregate gross revenues of $136,
000.000. or 10% per cent; more than
a third of that increase was car
ried through to net railway operat
ing income, increasing the latter by
$52,000,000. or 49 per cent. For the
month of May alone, the showing
was even more impressive. Gross
rose $32,000,000, or 12 per cent, of
which nearly half was carried
through to net—and this figure
rose by 73 per cent. On the basis
of the performance so far, net in
excess of the $165,000,000 for 1936.
the best year since 1930, seems well j
within reach for 1940,” says the!
magazine in its forthcoming issue.
‘‘Though the roads as a whole
seem adequately equipped to handle
even the greater volume of traffic

render the utmost in efficiency in j

Brisk Furniture Buying
Reported at Chicago
B> the Associated Press.
CHICAGO, July 8. — Furniture
buying by retailers attending the
midyear manufacturers’ shows in
Chicago is normal and in instances
above normal reports from Amer
ican Furniture Mart and Merchan
dise Mart officials indicated today
at the close of the first wTeek of
the expositions.
Lawrence H. Whiting, president j
of the American Furniture Mart,
said dealers are buying for their
full 90-day requirements from the ,
time of delivery. There is neither
speculative nor hand-to-mouth buy
ing, but rather a compromise.
“This attitude of the home fur
nishing buyers is due largely to the
expectation that the increase in their
volume thus far this year over 1939
will be maint^red. The gain up
to now has avfaged better than
11 per cent, and Imp manufacturers
report increases in orders at higher
than 20 per cent over a year ago,”
he stated.
W'hiting said that all branches of
the home furnishings industry are
sharing in the brisk buying, includ
ing furniture, major home appli
ances, floor coverings, lamps and
juvenile items.
Attendance is running 10 per cent
ahead of a >ear ago, and is the
third highest in history for the fur
niture mart summer markets.

Unfavorable Outlook
For Spring Wheat
Bolsters Prices
Dry Weather in Some
Sections Reduces
Crop Prospects
By the Associated Press.
Unfavorable prospects for the
spring wheat crop have given do
mestic markets a firmer tone, the
Agriculture Department said today.
Dry weather in some sections of
the spring wheat belt reduced 1940
production prospects. At the close

over most of South Dakota and
In Canada prospects were main

The outlook for the bread grain crop j
in Europe remains uncertain, the
department said, but harvests much j
below last season were forecast for
a number of important producing i

cars received at Fort Worth and
nearly 7,500 at Kansas City, showed
exceptionally high quality with a
large percentage grading No. 2 or

Dry Goods Market
NEW YORK. July 8 I/P).—Dry goods:
Cotton cloth selling agents reported list
less trading. Demand was fair for rayon

lowest for a 30-day period In 20 years.

Steady Upward Trend
For Second Half
Increasing Stimulus
Of U. S. Armament
Spending Foreseen
BOSTON, July 8—Major business
trend during the second half will be
upward under the growing stimulus
of United States armament spend
ing, says the United Business Serv
ice in its special midyear appraisal
The service points out that con
tinuation of the war would acceler
ate the current recovery, while an
early peace would probably bring a
temporary letdown, the extent of
which would depend on how soon it
came. The defense program is
gaining momentum, and the longer
peace is deferred the more moderate
will be the repercussions from a
cessation of foreign war orders. Re
gardless of possible near-term in
terruptions, however, the Nation is
entering an extended period of pro
duction activity.
Other forecasts covered by the
special report include:
average about 10 per cent above
1939 for the full year, regardless of
European developments. Emphasis
will be on war materials, but con
sumer lines will also benefit from
rising employment and pay rolls.
Commodity prices—Longer-term
trend is still upward. Continuation
of war would accelerate rise later
in the year. Peace would lessen
demand for war materials but stim
ulate call for other items. No ‘‘wild
inflation” of prices is in prospect.
Retail trade—Full-year dollar
volume should average 8 to 10 per
cent above 1939. Urban trade will
improve more than rural, but latter
will be bolstered this summer and
fall toy record Federal benefit pay
Steel—Continued war will lift
1940 output close to 20 per cent
above 1939. Early peace would be
unsettling temporarily. Second
half operations should average
around 85 per cent of capacity,
bringing full-year average to 75 to
80 per cent, against 61 per cent
in 1939.
Building—Residential and indus
trial will continue to hold above a
year ago. Public works will show
little change; utility contracts
should pick up somew-hat.
Automobiles—Earlier forecast of
about 4>2 million cars and trucks
this year still looks about right.
This will be 15 per cent gain over
1939. New-car stocks, although
laige, are not excessive relative to
sales. Industry will benefit from
armament work and increased
military truck orders.

Aufo Firms to Finish
Model Changes by
End of Month
Earliest Shutdown
Program in History
Now Under Way
By the Associated Press.
DETROIT, July 8.—Practically
all of the motorcar industry’s as
sembly plants will be closed by the
end of the present month for the
change-over to new models, says
Ward’s Automotive Reports in its
current issue.
Last week, the trade publication
says, five plants—Cadillac, Hudson,
Nash, Packard and Studebaker—
closed down for change-over opera
tions. Noting that Uje completion
of the 1940 model output through
out the industry this month will
bring the earliest shutdown pro
gram since the fall introductions
of new models were inaugurated,
Ward's adds:
“First resumptions of operations
on 1941 models will be seen before
the end of the month. Several
plants will be in production on 1941s
by mid-August, and the indication
now *is that all factories will be in
1941 model runs by mid-September,
and quite likely earlier.
Commenting on the retail sales
situation, the survey says that de
liveries continued their mid-June
advance right through the end of
the month, and continues:
“Some companies anticipate bet
ter business in the current period,
due to the fact that many States
begin half-year license-plate sales
on July 1.
“A better market appears to be
developing for used cars at this
period. Anticipations of higher
prices later on are factors. It may
be, also, that the decline in new
car buying was not accompanied
during May by as precipitate a drop
in second-hand car sales, which
would tend to reduce such stocks.
"July 1 saw the new defense
taxes go into effect, and there was
immediate reaction within the in
dustry. » * • Packard adjusted its
j retail prices ahead somewhat to
offset various excise taxes. The
advances ran up to around 2 per
cent; they averaged somewhat
above 1 per cent from original 1940
prices. Base prices in the 110, 120
and 160 series were left unchanged,
but other models wTere advanced
$16 to $30.”
Lumber Output Off
2 Per Cent in Week
Lumber production during the
week ended June 29 was 2 per cent
less than in the previous week,
shipments were 4 per cent greater,
new business 6 per cent greater, ac
cording to reports to the National
Lumber Manufacturers Association.
Shipments were .2 per cent above
production, new orders 3 per cent
above production.
Compared with the corresponding
week of 1939, production was 5 per
cent greater, shipments 1 pet- cent
less and new business 1 per cent
greater. The industry stood at 73
per cent of the seasonal weekly
average of 1929 production and 73
per cent of average 1929 shipments.
Reported production for the 26
weeks of 1940 to date was 8 per cent
above corresponding weeks of 1939,
shipments were 6 per cent above
the shipments and new orders were
5 per cent above the orders of the
1939 period.

The recession in prices for indus

Wheat declined on heavy re
