r—Revised.
1/ Curing March and April changes- from a year ago reflect in part the fact that last
year Easter was on April 17 v;hile this year it will be on April 9. For this
reason it is estimated that in comparison with last year allowance should be
made for an increase in sales of about 2 per cent for the month of March as a
whole and for a corresponding decrease for the month of April as a whole.
