But the latest government study shows costs ire going up faster than wages. The worst news for the housewife Is that fond costs will go up at least six percent this year, on top of the 4.5 percent increase which took place last year. The new.s was disclosed by government experts appearing at a three-day "Outlook" conference here, who said in a report, "There is little or no hope that any broad based food price decreases will occur this year." "Because of the sharp in creases laic last year and early this year, food prices likely will average around 6 percent higher than in 1972," the report added, The biggest price hikes have taken place in beef, pork, fish fresh fruit and vegetables. The report said poultry prices migtv come clown this spring, and pork prices might decrease thi summer, but everything else will go up, at the supermarket. Just after this prediction was disclosed at the "Outlook 1 conference, the new Consumer Price Index was published showing food prices rose I/ percent in January. This prompted Preslden Nixori to issue a statemen promising housewives that foo prices would stop rising by mid summer. It also prompted Agricultun Secretary Earl But?, to delive: his standard speech to repor ters, pointing out that the average family today actual! spends a lower percentage p its income for food than it die twenty years ago The average family spent 17.4 percent of it income on food last year compared to 30.8 percent i: 1950, Butz said. Americans spent $1-25 billlo: on food last year, an increas of six percent over the previou year.
