Industrial Activity Is Foreshadowed WASHINGTON, Dec, f 3 Con tinued industrial actlv:ty ii predicted by the conimittea on catls?l,ics of tho chamber of commerce of tho United States in its annual end-f-the-year review of business and clrop condi tions. Manufacturers, tfie review says, have orders in exceis to their capacity and in, the retail frade there is a feeling of confidence pt the con tinuation, until another Barvest at least, of the demand for afl classes of commodities.. . Farmers are reported! unusually prosperous, because of the high prices of their products. The liberal spend ing of the farmers, the review assert ed, is the backbone and sustaining power of the present volume of bus iness throughout the country as they are paying mostly casti and are pur chasing more improved farm machin ery and pure bred livestock than ever before. Of the general crop filiation, the report stated that rain did much dam age to unharvested crops fn the south andTnthVsoultie of the central states, reducing the yield and impairing quality. V' Winter wheat acreage will be mat erially reduced this fall, the review said, as the farmers believed winter wheat production at high prices was over for the present. "Great activity in building," the committee added, "is expscted in sec tions except where crop failures were extensive, copper mining Is in a new state, silver mining is doing well, oil production is good."
