For the past three years, Public gets blase on price hikes By JOHN CUNNIFF NEW YORK '(AP) - Have you been complaining less about price increases recently? There's a growing feeling among some merchants that while you may not be enjoying price rises, you're becoming less perturbed. The suspicion cannot be easily documented, and indeed it seems to be contradictory. If people were perturbed last year by 5 and G per cent increases, she had resided with her daughter, Mrs. William Moore of 1739 Rodgers Ave. She was born in Pike County to the late Mr. and Mrs. George Pruitt on Jan. 15,1893. Prior to her illness for the past 10 years, she was employed employed at the Olin Mathieson Corp. Survivors include, her husband William F. Green, a son, Arnold Zumwalt of Godfrey; Godfrey; three daughters, Mrs. William Moore, Mrs. Bula Ottwell of Pearl, 111., and Mrs. Arthur Kutenkamp of Brighton; 10 grandchildren; 26 great- grandchildren; and two sisters, Mrs. Pearl David of Alton, and Mrs. Burris Ann Barber of Louisiana, Mo. She was preceded in death by three brothers and three sisters. Visitation will begin after 2 p.m. Tuesday at the Gent Funeral Home, where funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Wednesday. The Rev. John Allenbernd, pastor of the First Congregational Church in Godfrey, will be presiding. Burial will follow in the Upper Alton Cemetery.
