previous month on the strength
of bigger demand for automo-
biles, steel, textiles and other
basic products, the Federal Re-

The board said the output of
factories, mines and utilities
rose 1 per cent in December for
the biggest increase since the
1.8 per cent in September. In-
dustrial production had riven by

million for the first three months
of this year. The board said ap-
