r—Revised.
1/ During March changes from a year ago reflect i m p a r t the fact that last year
.^Easter;, was on March 28'while this year^it will be on April '17. For this reason
it is estimated* that in comparison with last year allowance should t?e made for
a decrease in sales of about 6 per cent for the-month of March as a-whole.
-* The-large decrees.©. shown -for this week reflects'"iri part the fact that sales were
"reduced because of a curtailment;> in public transportation' service in the City .
of- Philadelphia."
