Good Business for
Fall Seen by Hood
(Continued from Page One.)
March to June of this year is not
expected to be as great as from March
1934, to March 1935, Commissioner
Hood is convinced that the increase
will be substantial.
"The .bankers over the State ato
more optimistic than they have been
in many years and are convinced that
there is a steady improvement in
business throughout the entire State,”
Hood said. “People I meet and talk
with from other states tell me that
we Irave made jf. more rapid recovery
from the depression here in North
Carolina than in any other State and
that we do not realize how much bet
ter off we are than most of the other
“I have just come back from a va
cation trip through North Carolina
and several other states, and I was
glad to get back to North Carolina,
where crops looked better and stores
busier and where people were feeling
better. I am prouder than ever that
I am a North Carolinian.”
