The Season's On
Thanksgiving is over, and a quick
check at the calendar reveals that
there are only 19 shopping days be
This is definitely the Christmas
shopping season and with that thought
in mind we .urge our readers to do
this year's Christmas shoping in
Pur merchants have large stocks of
Christmas merchandise, practically
the same 3tock you will find in stores
everywhere ... so why not save time
and effort by doing your shopping at
Another thought we have along this
line is for our readers to shop at home
and thus support our local merchants.
These same merchants are the ones
that' support the many and varied
projects sponsored by you. ... so let's
make Hertford a better community
by shopping at home.
The monthly report of the Presi
dent's Council of Economic Advisors
shows the first recovery in industrial
production since October, 1948. Pre
liminary estimates indicate that, in
August, industrial production recover
ed the four per cent dropped in July.
There are some favorable and some
unfavorable facts in the picture as
presented to Congress and the Presi
dent. The country's labor force in
creased by 400,000 but this was be
cause non-agricultural industries off
set the decline in agricultural em
ployment that totaled more than one
million. Prices received by fanners,
and the parity ratio, continued the de
cline which began in April. Personal
incomes dropped in July to three per
cent below the high of December,
194f, with most of the decline show
ing itself in farm income.
. We have selected several items re
lating to agriculture in this country
because it seems to establish that
farmers, as usual, bear the first brunt
of a drop in prices. It is well to bear
this in mind in connection with any
legislation to bolster agriculture be
cause 'of the undisputed fact that the
economic welfare of the nation de
pends upon the economic welfare of
the farmers in this country. -
