r==Revised.
Data net available.
1 During larch and April changes from a year ago reflect in part the fact that last
~
year Easter v;as on Larch 25 while this year it will be on April 13. For this
reason it.is estimated that in comparison v:ith last year an allowance should be
made for a decrease in sales of about c per cent for the month of March as a
Thole and for a corresponding increase for the month oi April as a whole.
2/ The decrease reflects in part the fact that sales this week were reduced because
— :
of a curtailment in public transportation service in the City of San Francisco.
