r—Revised. Data net available. 1/ During March and April changes from a year ago reflect in part the fact that last year Easter was on iiarch. 25 v/hile this, year it was on April 13. For this reason it is estimated that in comparison with last year an allowance should be made for a decrease in sales of about 6 per cent for the month of March as a whole and for a corresponding increase for the month of April as a whole.
