ChicagA. Nov. 17. After two
months of depression, there has been
an upward turn in the automobile
business, both pleasure cars and
trucks, according to., Alfred Reeves,
general manager of the National
Automobile Chamber of Commerce,
who addressed the Automotive
Eauioment association here. x
"Along with other industries we
have had poor sales tor two montns,
but the automobile business is now
moving upward," Mr. Reeves said
"Present production is not averag
ing more than 50 per cent, except in
the case of three or four factories.
The full year, however, will exceed
all records, approaching 1.900,000
cars and 340,000 trucks. Car re
