*-In using year ago comparisons for the weeks ending November 22 and November 29,
allowance should be made for 'the fact that in observance of the Thanksgiving holid^r,
store closings occurred in the week ending November 2h, 1951 whereas this year they
occurred in the week ending November 29.
NOTE—Since sales rise sharply with the approach of 'Christmas, the fact that, due
^to this year being a "leap" year, the corresponding week last year was two days
nearer Christmas becomes increasingly significant in comparing weekly data. Allowance
for
Digitized for should be madeyear this calendar irregularity in evaluating the weekly percentFRASER
age changes from a
