It Is now down to about .5 per cent on an annual basis, t had been close to 6 per cent n 1970. , Three and one-half per cen is '·'. considered a "moderate 1 rate these days, but only be cause ot the "galloping" In "lation--5 per cent or more-hat went before. It could be misleading. Just a decade ago the nation settled on one tp two per cen as an "acceptable" rate. It wai called "creeping" inflation,-am t , -was tolerated .only, because nobody could figuie oul how t get it lo\v?r. NEARLY DOUBLE The current inflation' "rate however, Is nearly double that and p r o m p t s Martin Gains burgh, former chlet economls of The Conference Board, to re mind consumers that'even at a 3 per cent rate, inflation halve' the, dollar's value ln'24 years. He reminds those who "savi in contractual form, e g,, insur ance, mutual savings, saving and loan." that they are liabl ,o' tlnd their' dollars worth 'onlj lalf as much when they with draw them -in their declining years. , The erosion formula .is eas; Enough for anyone to"work dui To determine the number o years required to cut purchas ing.power in:half you divide th inflation rate into 72. The an swer is disconcerting--but valii able. It appears that the con servative financial practices o millions of Americans--ihe sat way, as they describe it--coul be. extremely wasteful, costl and disillusioning. And insurance policy, th premiums for which are paid current dollars, pays off in cur rent dollars too. But. premiufr payments are made in today' mone'y while face value is v re turned in tomorrow's ' cheape money. Savings accounts that pay per cent a year are actual! earning only 1.5 per cent--le.s after taxes--at the present in flation rate; And U.S. Saving Bonds, which pay 5.5, in realil yield only 2 per cent. RATE ROSE Curiously, when inflation a celerated, the rate of 'saving rose also. Savings Bonds ex perienced a reversal of fortune they had been paying out mor than they sold. but, with th help of a rate raise, this wa changed. Sales of. life insurance po ides'also continued to grow, a though it is significant-that th greater growth was not in sale of indiviudual but in group po teles, which usually are th m s l ' expensive- policies avail- bio, Oni conclusion that may bo cntntlvoly drawn from this lie- iivlor ts that some consumers odriy, are still Unaware of the I'oslvc power ot Inflation, But one indication that people re more aware than may be pparcnt of about how to dea vlth Inflation Is their growing ntcrest in equities--In share wncrship and in real estate. There are now' more, than 3( million shareholders |u Ameri an companies, ,nbout;slx,times lie number of 20 years a g o And the percentage of tamllle: hat own rather than rent ha Isen steadily since the Grea Depression.

(AP) -ho ci'oss-lHtstng of iiuplls In rndos fom\»nd five to wjilovo acini baluncp wns proposed ci'c Monday by ullornojs for 10 defendants In the desoc- ogatlon suit against Hip Llttlo lock SchOolDlstrlcl." Attorneys for the school loaid and plaintiffs appealed wtoie a tliioo-Judno federal mncl to appeal U.S. District Court Judge Oren HarrU re- :ent ruling In the case. Hails had accepted tha ichool boaid's proposal pio- Mded it made auie that each elementary school In thq dls- rlct have a 20 per cent minor- ly.emollmeht. Harris also said he hoard should readjust lla acuity assignments so that a school with a majority ot white students would have n majority ot black teucheis^nd vice versa. \ ' G. Ross Smith of Little Rock, one of the school Board's attoi- icys, said tho board proposed Monday that the 20 per cent mlnonty emotlment bo concen- .rated in the fourth and fifth ;rades. Smith said the board's proposal would call tor "the'busing of nl' fourth gradcis to an elementary school in the western side of the . district, which is predominantly white, and all tifth graders to a school in tho predominantly black eastern side of the district. ", Smith said that under thii proposal, grades one through three would operate under the neighborhood school concept. . "The expense Involved in ran cially balancing the pnmary grades one-three was quite substantial,and .would substantially impinge on the disjict's educational program," Smith said The plaintiffs say it is t h e board's obligation to achieva racial balance in every grade, and. that would require substantial busing. Smith said the defendants did not believe.-they should,be required to bus any students de- spite.the proposal Monday. John W.
