By JOHN CUNNIFF AP Business Analyst NEW YORK (AP) - In 1923 a man walked into a store in Berlin and asked about the price or a certain pair of shoes. He was quoted a figure of VA million marks. It was 9:30 a.m. Inquiring again at noon the man found the merchant now asking seven million marks. Being reluctant to pay such a price he waited a half an hour, and then the price was 14 mil lion marks. . , . , , . Nothing of the sort is likely to happen in the United States, nor again for that matter in any well-developed nation. But it does show in magnified form the disaster of inflation, which turns cash to trash. American purchasing power also is eroding, although at one Scientist Finds No III Effects InCatsKeptAwakeForlWeeks LOS ANGELKS (AP) -- An experimenter says he has kept cats awake with low-voltage current for up to two weeks with no ill effects on the animals. But lie adds that it's too early to speculate on sleep-saving implications for humans. Dr. John E. Holmes. University of Southern California neurologist implanted electrodes in an nrca of the midhrain called tlic reticular formation which controls wakefulness. The results -announced Friday--were surprising, even to First, the cats were in better shape afterward than the researchers who worked in shifts to monitor their behavior. Secondly, said Holmes. ' I had predicted that to maintain wakefulness in the animals v would he necessary to increase the electrical current regularl to the point that it would affec' other areas of their brains. Bu a steady, small amount of cur rent (two to four volts) proved sufficient to keep the animal awake without harm." A report on Dr. Holmes' work vas released by the school. He elaborated in an interview. "The current was suppliei hrough a cable suspended from he roof of the cats' cages," he said. "There is no reason, how ever, why a strapped-on batterj pack could not be used for larg ;r animals, including man." Could this method be used, fo 'sample, to create an army o soldiers who could go for week without sleep? Holmes said he would rathe not discuss such "nightmarish possibilities, but noted that sim ilar deep implants in other parl of the brain have been made i human volunteers for mpnitoi ing and shock-treating epilepsj "Such operations involve ce lain risks," he said. "And a Ic of experimentation with bight animals such as monkeys woul have to be done before th could be tried in humans, to se if their need for sleep could b reduced or eliminated." rffHHiaisrm^ News Of Other Years 10 YEARS AGO Tuesday. April 28. is the second free polio shot day, and citizen in this area of Washington County may obtain a polio immunization shot free of charge. It is the custom of many persons in Fayettcville wh own dogs to keep them up the daytime and let them roa at night. They feel pretty su the dog catcher won't be on t job past dark. the slowest rates in the jrld. Brazil, for example, has d 30 per cent annual erosion its money for a decade. In the nited States the rate is 2 per nt or less. Inflation nevertheless has hac serious cumulative effect in e United States and its gettini orse. The present rise in thr nsumer price index is tht reatest since the Korean War A family man with two chi! ren had to earn $14,282 in 196 equal the purchasing powe ' $5,000 in 1939. Now, a yea 'ter the National Industria onference Board studied tli tuation, it probably takes clos r to $14,500. WHERE DID IT GO Where did the purchasin ower go? Why should mor lan $14,000 now buy what les lan $5.000 bought in 1939? Th NICB came up with this an wer: Inflation took $7,258, an igher taxes another $2,083. These two big factors in the ecline of purchasing power eally aren't in the same catc ory, for taxes are presumed to e returned to the taxpayer in ic form of services. But infla- ion is like evaporation. Rising like an overheated hermometer, the index of con- umer prices is now approach- ng 126, based on prices of 1957 o 1959 equalling 100. Economic heat of that sort means lots of evaporation. In the three years which ended at the very start of this year he consumer price index rose 1.4 per cent, but that doesn't lell the entire story. Hospital charges per day. for example, rose 52 per cent. LONG TERM PROBLEM In fact, the First National City Bank notes in a study ol consumer prices. "In varying degrees, inflation is affecting u; from the cradle to the grave." Documenting the sweeping statement, it shows that fron December 19G5 to the beginning of this year, obstetrical fees rose 21 per cent, baby sitter services 22. legal fees for will; 14, and funerals 10 per cent. House prices varied greath from area to area in the same three years but ownership costs generally rose 17 per cent Restaurant meals increased b. the same percentage, movie ad missions by 27. physician fee 21, fishing rods 15 per cent.
