cators were signals of any fatal
flaws in the recovery.
The key factor in the slower
total economic growth was a
slower pace of inventory build-
up by business. Businesses had
cut back on inventories through-
out 1975 rather than satisfying
demand exclusively from cur.
rent production. Then in the
first quarter, they suddenly re-
stocked inventories at an an-
nual rate of $14.2 billion.
MEN AND women were call-
ed back to production lines to
restock shelves. But in the sec-
ond quarter, inventories grew
at a slower pace, an annual rate
of $13.3 billion. Thus output
grew more slowly and the labor
market reflected the change.
Unemployment stood at 7.5
per cent at the end of the first
quarter and was in the same
spot at the end of the second
quarter. In fact because of pop.
ulation growth and reentry of
discouraged job seekers into
the labor market, the labor
force grew and unemployment
swelled by 116,000 to hit 7.1
million in June.

Fishing frenzy
Two fishermen tow stringers of white bass caught in the Wolf
River near Fremont, Wis. The ran of white bass was at its
peak and there was no limit on the haul.
