Interesting Bits Of

Nation-wide check by National Re

prediction that September-November
season will bring seven per cent sales
increase . . Largest contract yet
signed under national defense pro
gram is just announced?with Chrys
ler corporation, totaling $53,500,000
with 20 of those millions for plant
and equipment, the balance for
tanks; expected to be in quantity
production in a year . It's esti
mated auto production for the 1940
model year, now closing, was 4,
164.093 units?which is nearly 23
per cent more than in preceding
model years; dealers are now mov

gestion by the credit bureau that

spending would be lessened and i
more bills would get paid.
Log-JanT In Plane
In view of the general recognition
that the pace of national defense
goods production is the chief govern
ing factor in the state of business,
news that the "log-jam" which has
held up aircraft procurement appar
ently has been broken up if of prime
importance. An agreement has new
been reached between the govern
ment and the aircraft industry that
will allow for awarding of contracts
and immediate undertaking of pro
duction without waiting for enact
ment of the new tax bill covering
excess profits .. . Within a few hours
after the agreement was reached it A
had borne fruit, in the form of an '
111,000,000 contract with one firm for
700 planes, and other contracts were
expected to be signed within a few
days. These would involve about a
dozen other aircraft, accessory and
engine manufacturers, for produc
tion of approximately 4,000 ships for
the air corps?at a complete cost of
around $400,000,000. This develop
ment will almost surely open the
way for similar arrangements with
respect to production of many other
kinds of munitions.
