Between the two categories noted under the index of industrailly manufactured goods, there has been a wide divergence in the recent period. Nondurable goods have rocked along at almost the same pace since 1951, while those classified as durables have been running along at higher, but not as stable, level. Most of the drop for durables has come since the last half of 1952. Since the first part of 1954 they have leveled out considerably. The result: Industrial output has leveled out, but a level considerably below that of mid-1953.
