Bradstreet's Report Shows Nation Is
Trade is flourishing throughout the
country and industry could not be
more active, according to Bradstreet's
for Nov. 3. The success of the second
Liberty Loan assures vast expendi-
tures for some time to come. The tre-
mendous buying campaign that the
government will carry on, which will
be the greatest ever witnessed in the
history of any country, overshadows
everything else. But ordinary buying
shows a good volume, especially at
centers near army cantonments. Re-
tail trade in general has improved
with the coming of cold weather, al-
though prices continue high.
Labor is scarce, and output tenids
to be restricted in the non-essential'
things. The industries showing most
quiet production are the automobile
factories of pleasure cars, and ordi-
Crops are somewhat uncertain, ow-
ing to the capricious weather. The
West and Southwest report loss of a
wheat crop, because of lack of rain.
The corn belt reports too much rain,
which is delaying the crop. The new
moist corn is selling at low prices.
Potatoes and beans were not thor-
oughly harvested before the cold set
in, which will reduce these products.
October bank clearings broke all
records, according to Bradstreet's.
There were fewer failures the last
week of October than for the same
week last year, or se ral years pre-
ceeding. Money is firm, the Liberty
Loan payments apparently creating
Coach Mitchell Gives His Men Chance
at Basket Shooting and Light
Coach Mitchell gave his Varsity
basketball candidates their first regu-
lar practice last night at Waterman
gymnasium. Five new men appeared,for
places on the squad and this brought
the total up to 50.
The coach changed his plans some-
what with regard to the division of his
squad. Instead of working with three
groups as originally planned the bask-
etball mentor has split his men into
two groups and will give each squad
a 45-minute workout. This, Mitchell
explained last night, will give him a
chance to get a line on the ability of
,most of the men.
Practice started last night with
trials for basket. For five minutes all
the men in the first squad were caging
them from all parts of the court.
Then pick-up teams from this group
engaged in a five-minute game. The
game procedure was followed in prac-
tice for the second group.
This program will be maintained for
a few weeks until the coach gets better
acquainted with the men. Then he will
perfect another division of the squad
into groups of men according to their
ability. No cut will be made, however
before the end of the month.
Mitchell followed the work of some
of the men in the interclass contest.;
last year and has an opinion on the
ability of some of the candidates.
Hewlett and Clark, both candidates for
all-campus second team honors last
year, have reported for practice. Shel-
ley, Lowe, McClintock, Weathers, Edi-
son and Brown were given honorable
mention last year and have put in
an appearance for the Varsity., Others
who starred in the interclass contests
and who are candidates for berths on
the team are: Rychener, Bartz and
Rowley, Bornstein, Ruzika, Later
and Daines were not in the interclass
games last year but have had a good
deal of prep. school experience.
