From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Factory Orders Up 1.8%: A revival in auto production during February pushed factory orders up 1.8% to a seasonally adjusted $231.6 billion after a sharp decline in January, the Commerce Department said Friday. It said January orders dropped a revised 5.5%, down from an originally reported 5.4% decline, due to fewer orders for everything from cars and airplanes to military tanks.
