six cities In the 12th federal reserve
district were 8.1 per cent greater In
value than sales In February of last

here today by the federal reserve bank.
The statement was based on reports
submitted by 25 representative depart
ment stores and mail order houses In
Oakland, Los Angeles, Spokane, San
Francisco, Seattle and Salt Lake City.
"In the rural sections," the state
ment said, "largely due to decreased
buying power, coincident with the de
cline in value of farm products, sales
were less In amount that a year ago,
offsetting the increase in the citiea
For the district as a whole, retail sales
were 2.4 per cent less In value than in
February 1920, . . '
"As the dollar will buy more com
modities at present thnn In February
1920, thl figure docs not mean that
the volume of trade has been small

ten to thirty per cent less than a year
ago and it is probable, therefore, that
a greater volume has een turned over
this year than last year." . , .
