ClO-Palm Beach Post, Thursday, Nov. 28, 1968 Average Paycheck Loses 66 Cents As Living Cost Takes Big Leap ' S . V it i.. v The big October rise in clothing costs put prices 6.5 per cent over a year ago. and medical care was 6 per cent higher than in October 1967. A 4 5 per cent increase in new car prices with the introduction of 1969 models was the major factor in October's transportation costs, which were 2.5 per cent higher over the year. Wholesale price hikes for industrial raw materials included 7.8 per cent for plywood. 15 per cent for lumber, and three-tenths of one per cent for metals. per cent compared to 3 1 per cent for all of 17," the Bureau said. The value of the dollar has dropped 81 4 cents in the past 10 years. 3.7 cents of the decline in the last year alone. Chase said the most striking feature of the October report was the widespread price hikes for both consumer goods and services and industrial raw materials, which rose five-tenths of one per cent. Wholesale price hikes usually find their way into retail prices eventually A drop in wholesale food prices balanced off the industrial price hikes and the Wholesale Price Index remained unchanged at 109 1. But preJiminarv November figures indicate a four-tenths of one per cent rise in the Wholesale Index. The four-tenths of one per cent rise in retail food prices, which usually drop that much in October, resulted from large increases for fruits, vegetables and poultry, and some hikes for meats. Food prices were 4.5 per cent above a year ago. : ' " Jm T m i s" 1 Official Canvass Given Stuart Vote H'll. noma .Name Cleared Circuit Judge Robert S.

But Chase said he agreed with Arthur Okun. chief White House economist, that "we have turned the corner" and the inflationary, trend should taper off. The government sees no need for wage-price controls now. Chase said. The October rise, largest for a single month since September of 1962. boosted the government's Consumer Price Index to 122.9. This means it cost $12.29 period on which the index is based. Prices rose for all major categories of living costs. Clothing and transportation rose nine-tenths of one per cent each, food and housing four-tenths each, medical care seven-tenths and recreation six-tenths.
