St.00 par Yen* BUSINESS IMPROVEMENT WILL CONTINUE THE ECONOMIC LAW IS LEVELING CONDITIONS SLOWLY, SAYS OFFICER Of FEDERAL RESERVE BANK Editor's Note—The following was taken from the March issue of the Monthly Business Review, official paper of the Fourth Federal Reserve Bank. A big majority of uur correspondents this month report an Improvement in business, and most of them declare it as their opinion that the Improvement will continue. The economic law is leveling conditions slowly, just as the physical law of gravitation works by degrees rather than all at once. During 1921 manufacturers and others were directing their efforts towards cutting down their Inventories and were not ordering anything that they could possibly get along without. This holding off On buying continued until Inventories were taken on December 31, when a resumption of buying in a moderate volume began In a number of Industries. The process at this stags, is more one of 'matching dollars," relieving the unemployment situation, but without much prospect of profit on plant operation. Without question there le more activity in business than there was a month ago. It is true that a great many people are pessimistic at this time, but It must be remembered that this Is the season when financial statements from commercial and- manufacturing concerns showing last year's operations are being exhibited. People feel worse when they come (o a realisation of their actual condition which has in fact existed for some time. An outstanding feature of tbe reports received this month Is the frequent reference to lower stocks of goods carried. Such expressions as these occur: "Our customers a year ago were carrying large stocks of goods which have since bean absorbed." "The visible supply of materials In our industry has been greatly redafced." "Like everyone else in the Industry, teday we ear* mot purchase materials in anticipation of orders, and therefore unless we have from 30 to 60 days advance notice it is going to be most difficult to give you the shipments which you will require." Our correspondents refer to the "invisible supply of goods" (meaning In the hands of the consumer) and are sure in many commodities that supply Is near exhaustion. It would seem, therefore, that the business situation is gathering elements of strength underneath; reflecting Itself in this country in Increased turnover both in commodities and transactions, and abroad in the improvement of the exchanges. While seasonal trade will be emphasized and spurts occur followed by reaction in those industries repend- ent upon a seasonal demand ,it is our judgment that the renewed activity in many lines of business is the beginning of a steady return to "better times." HIGH CAGERS TO MEET VERMILION SATURDAY The high cagers will battle with Vermilion at the local gym Saturday night. The local lads were able to defeat Vermilion at Vermilion a short time ago and are confident of a victory Saturday night. Tbe local girls have been defeated twice by the Vermilion girls at Vermilion, the scores, however, being close. The girls' game Is expected to be close.

FORD SALES TEAM WIN FROM ELYRIA The Ford Sales romped off with another victory last Friday night when "they downed the Elyria Y. M. C. A. outfit by a score of 37-12 in a onesided contest. The Elyria aggregation took the measure of the Fords a short time ago by a one-point margin and revenge came in full measure Friday night The first hulf was a walkaway for the Fords, their opponents being held to one field goal, which was made by ii,lis, playing at the center position. Urges and Mitchell each put the ball ili'iiuuli the hoop three times and Heuin followed with two field goals in the first half, the score being 16-2 at the end of the period. lit the last half tho teams battled evenly for a short time, neither team making any headway. Bruce started ..ho scoring aud caged five field goals In this period. .Hearn came next with three and "Val" lloggle followed with two. Mitchell caked one foul Keller and deals, ot the visitors, were each credited with two field goals In the last period, leaving a score of 27 to 12.

The game decided the championship of Lorain county and the Fords boast ot a decided victory, defeating the Estarols of Lorain and the "Y" team ot Elyria. Word was received here today that the state fire marshal, H. A. Dykeman, has set aside the week of April 1 to 7 inclusive, as "1922 Clean-Up Week." For tbe past tew years a week in the spring of the year has been set aside as National Fire Prevention week and the results have been so enormous tl\at It haa been advisable to set aside a week of this year for a similar purpose. To get to the foundation of such a matter, letters have been sent to every chamber of commerce, every mayor, every civic organization and every woman's club in the state of Ohio, urging them to take part In this fire prevention week. It has also been suggested that the schools take an active part in this affair as the influence of a clean-up weeqk of this type will be most impressive on young minds and that it will reflect itself In later years. Just why this week has been set aside can be explained by the questions which Mr. Dykeman has asked: "Why burn up 343 people In one year? Why sacrifice the lives of 115 children and cripple 116 more? Why kill 72 mothers and wound nearly 200 more, when 87 per cent of these horrors can be avoided?" The above tacts are taken from official reports and are true, which Is a good reason why communities should take hold of an affair of this sort. The village council have already acted upon Mr. Dykeman's request and their plans for the week ot April 1 to 7 inclusive, will be announced later. It Is not known whether or not other organizations will help In this matter but it is the earnest hope that they will not tall down when such an opportunity is afforded. CABERS LOSE TO STRUTHERS LOCALS SLOWED UP IN LAST QUARTER, ALLOWING OPPONENTS TO WIN BY FOUR POINTS The local high cagers met defeat at the hands of the Struthers high outfit at the Warner gym at Oberlln last Saturday afternoon by a score of 19- 16. The game was arranged by the Northeastern board of control to decide the champions ot the entire northeastern dlatrict of Ohio. The local cagers came to light when they won the Northern Division tournament at Oberlln a short tlms ago. Struthers came to light at the same time when they won the Southern championship at Alliance. The game last Saturday gave Struthers the title of champions of the entire Northeastern district. The locals started out In low speed in the first quarter and Struthers obtained a lead In this period. The locals pepped up a little in the second quarter and tied the score, which stood 10 10 at the end of the first half. For the remainder ot the game neither team showed any great ability and a slow game was the result. Amherst took a one-point lead early in the last quarter but their opponents scored five points in the last few minutes ot play. The scoring of these winning points was due to poor playing on the part of the locals. Several Amherst fans who witnessed the last games of the tournament a week ago and also the one last Saturday stated that the flrat games were by tar superior to the one played against the Struthers team. ' However, the game left Amherst with the Northern championship and with a trophy presented by Oberlln college. SUNDAY SCHOOL CONVENTION AT OBERLIN REPORTS ON LAST YEAR'S WORK WILL BE READ AT THE MEETING FORD SALES AND CLOTHIER8 TO BE IDLE The Ford Sales and the Plato Clothiers will be idle this week as no games have been scheduled.

FORD RETAIL 8ALE8 GO OVER MILLION Mr. and Mrs. James Brennen and daughter left for Brie, Pa., today. Retail Hales of Ford cars, trucks aud Fordson trustors have ugaln exceeded the million mark for the year 1921, according to a statement given out today by the Ford Motor Company. The Ford factory and assembly plant production figures reached a total of 1,050,740 cars, trucks and tractors for the yeur, with retail sales by dealers approximating 1,093,000, which in the United States alone surpassed the 1920 retail sales record by 104,213 Ford cars and trucks. The Ford Company says the outlook for 1922 is decidedly optimistic. In fact, concrete evidences already exist in that car and truck retail sales for December, 1921, exceeded December, 1920, spies by almost 25 per cent, and Fordaon tractor retail sales for the same periods show an increase ot over 100 per cent for • December, 1921, as well as an increase over the total tractor sales tor the month of November. These facts seem to Indicate that not only are the farmers buying more freely, but that the general public is becoming more responsive and receptive.

Also for the consoling words of Rev. Howath. MR. AND MRS.

The Lorain County Sunday School association has had marked success during the past year under the leader ship or its president, E. P. Posts of Elyria. The one big thing that tans been accomplished is the establishment ot teachers' training classes In the smaller communities ot tho smbv ty. It is recognized by Mr. Posts and his associates thai the efficiency ot the school depends upon its teachers, and hence this point has been attacked. The theme, "Efficient Church Schoola - Objectives, Organization and Program,'' to be takMi, up at Oberlin, will be handled by recognized experts in the Sunday School field. One day of three sessions will be devoted to this convention. Two state workers will be present as speakers.

There will be something in every session of the convention for every Sunday School wotaatr of the county.

Sunday school work has taken on new life during the past year in many churches of the county. The county organisation is doing its bit to help the weaker schools. The annua! convention will be the starting point for another year's work in teaching the living Christian principles to (Joel's children. An attempt is being made to develop religious training In the Sunday schools ot the county In a way that will appeal to the practical Ideals of common folks. MRS.
