It Is practically certain that tho
record for carload shipments was
broken. The highest carload ship
ment cier recorded In ono month
wag Just under 30,000. The relsed
total for March was 27.3S0 and April
ran considerably In excess of this
figure. Whether a new mark Is set
will depend upon the number of cars
driven away from the factories.
Tho only possible deduction fr6m
theso production figures Is that the
automotive Industry is running at ca
pacity. For that reason any material
Increase In production will bo Im
possible this month. It can be stated
definitely, however, that May will be
as good as April Predictions 'beyond
that point would be hazardous, but
it would bo surprising If there were
not a seasonal decline In the third
quarter. Nothing like a slump Is
probable and It Is not likely that pro
