New orders for manufactured products of $49.3
billion in May increased $1 billion from the April
level and equalled the record high established in
December 1967, after seasonal adjustment, the
Bureau of the Census, U.S. Department of Com-
merce, announced today.

New orders for durable goods at $25.6 billion
increased from $25.2 billion in April. Substantial
increases in new orders for the automotive in-
dustry (orders are equal to shipments in the
automotive assembly industry), machinery and
equipment, and the primary metals industries
were accompanied by smaller increases in most
of the other major durable goods industries. The
notable exception was the decrease in commercial
arcraft orders following their unusually high
letels of the prior two months,

Manuitucmrers' shipments in May Increased to
a record $49.3 billion compared to $47,7 billion
yApril. Total inventories held by manufactures
on May 31 also increased to $84.3 billion from
$84,0 billion at the end of April. With shipments
increasing $1.6 billion and inventories increasing
oly $300 million, the inventories-shipments ratio
showed a decline from 1,76 in April to 1.71 in
May.


The increase in shipments of durable goods
to $25,5 billion from the April level of $24.6
billion was primarily attributable to the large
increases in the automotive and steel industries.
Nondurable goods producers reported their third
consecutive increase in shipments for May at
$23.8 billion compared with $23.1 billion in April.


Inventories of durable goods increased slightly
from $54.8 billion in April to $54.9 billion in
May with major industry groups showing a
mixed pattern of minor increases or decreases.
Total inventories of nondurable manufacturers
also showed a fractional increase to $29.3 billion
from the end of April total of $29.2billion,.


Unfilled orders for all manufacturing at $84.0
billion showed virtually no change from the April
backlog of $84.1 billion. However, exclusive of
transportation equipment, unfilled orders declined
$300 million. The unfilled orders-shipment.
ratio for durable goods decreased from 3,66 in
April to 3.58 in May as a result of the sizeable
increase in shipments and relatively unchanged
backlog.
