*-In using year ago comparisons for the weeks ending November 22 and November 29, allowance should be made for 'the fact that in observance of the Thanksgiving holid^r, store closings occurred in the week ending November 2h, 1951 whereas this year they occurred in the week ending November 29. NOTE—Since sales rise sharply with the approach of 'Christmas, the fact that, due ^to this year being a "leap" year, the corresponding week last year was two days nearer Christmas becomes increasingly significant in comparing weekly data. Allowance should be made for this calendar irregularity in evaluating the weekly percentDigitized for FRASER age changes from a year ago. .
