REPORT INDUSTRIAL REVIVAL.
Experts Not Sure Whether It Is Sea
sonal or Permanent.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 30. A general
revival of business and industry is un
der way in the United States, according
to Secretary of the Treasury Mellon
and to reports being received by the
federal, reserve board and other agen
cies. Reserve board reports indicate that
the general revival in buying and com
mirciul activity, generally, is greater
tuati at any period since the depression
of last September began.
Administration officials, however, are
not prepared to commit themselves
fully to the prophecy of a general busi
ness boom. Mr. Mellon offers the sug
gestion that the renewed activity may
be seasonal, or it may be the forerunner
of the general boom that is expected
with the return to normalcy. It is
pointed out that business always picks
up in the early fall, after a period of
midsummer dullness, but usually this
sVnsonal actiyity does not particularly
manifest itself until September,
