A .ir has elapsed since the eco-1
mimic readjustment began to gather
momentum and the process Is yet to
lie completed. Forces of rehabilita
tion are now operative, however, nnd
the general outlook Is better. Cains
are not easily achieved and nono nt all
appear In some quarters, but the price
and wage revisions nnd the easing In
money are factum making for further
improvement In conditions. The
strengthening of sentiment, up on
which business recuperation so largely
depends, has continued and confidence
in n gradual revival of activities finds
more frequent expression. Recovery
has come first in those trades and in
dustries which wore the first to reart
from the boom of the war years and
afterward and in isolated Instances
enough new demand had developed to
bring a rally in prices. That such a
phase remains the exception Is dem
onstrated by the continued excess of
declines in wholesale quotations.
