Just As Many Dollars As Ever By CHARLES R FORBES There are just as many dollars to be spent this'year as there were last year, or any previous year. Some of the dollars may have passed from one set of owners to another, hut they have not been lost There is no economic reason for any person who can afford to spend money to refrain from spending it The industrial barometer doesn't show any signs of a storm. Department store managers report-an increase in December business over that of December, 1928. This indicates that people are doing their holiday shop ­ ping. - . Bankers inform us that a larger number of Christ ­ mas club accounts have been opened than ever be ­ fore. This indicates that the saving habit has taken hold and that 1930 Christmas money will be even more plentiful than this yagr. Every day in the world of big business we see signs of continued industrial activity and announce^ ment of vast expenditures for 1930. These are infU* putable signs that business will carry .on. that em­ ployment will be maintained at a high level, and that the spending power of the country will bo maintained. There are dollars to be made as long as anyone is willing to work for them. And this js a nation of workers.
