there is no •depression just

Leaders in the various branch-
jas of the nation's economy were
iWked their opinions on condi-
tions in their own fields and on
the country's economic health
Most of them agreed with thr
Commerce Department, which
reports that the postwar sellers'
market lias just about disappear-
ed in every line except automo-
biles and metals. A lumber in-
dustry leader said business in
his line was bad.
, Here are the opinions, indus-
try by industry:

dent of the Continental Oil Co..
I'onca City, Okla. "The oil in-
dustry finds itself in a position
marked by adequate production
to meet current consumer de-
mands and with ample inventor-
ies to meet contingencies in all
areas, as contracted with a year
ago when there were spot short-

FARMING:— Allan B. Kline,
Chicago, president of the Amer-
ican Farm Bureau Federation:
"Prospects for overseas ship-
ment are still good for 1010. The

ation of high consumer demand
for good quality foods and other
products, agriculture just doesn't

high purchasing power is going
to stay with us. And I feel fair-
FOODS:— Philip W. Pillsbury,
president of Pillsbury Mills Inc.,
Minneapolis: i agree with other
observers that there has been a
general leveling off of prices in
this country. Fortunately, in the
food industry recessions don't
have much effect on the volume
of production. Buyers simply
have become more critical of
price in their day-to-day buy-
CtOTHINti:— Jerome Udell,
president of Max L dell Sons &
Co., N< \v York, manufacturers
of men's clothing: I look for a
fairly sustained demand this
year, lower than the inflated
level, but with our present la-

possible to make any appreci-
able reduction in prices."

"The Banks of the United States

of Commerce Charles Sawyer and
Or. Edwin G. Xour.se, chairman
of the president's council of eco-

another depression is inevitable.
Sawyer: "The answer is defini-
tely 'So.'" Nourse: "No. I defi-
nitely do not believe that it is
inevitable that a nation whose
people are intelligent, enter-
prising and ingenious as ours
should again allow our produc-
tive resources to run to waste
in large quanities or over an ex-

| Proposals to tax the processing
of oil and gas products would
mean the ruination of the re-
fining industry in Texas, an in-
j dustry spokesman said here.
Charles E. Simons, general
| manager of the Texas Mid-Con-
tinent Oil & Gas Association's
I spoke before a tax panel of the
North Texas Oil & Gas Associa-
: lion's annual spring meeting.
Simons told his audience that,
in view of a declining economy
gripping the petroleum industry,
j Texas lawmakers should not in-
crea.se the oil and gas operators'
j tax burden.
"The Texas Petroleum indus-
try, under current tax schedul-

every two dollars of that $290,-
000,000 the State Comptroller ex-
pects for the general revenue
