SATURDAY, OCTOBER 5, 1996 Money THE SALINA JOURNAL T ECONOMY Market rises with unemployment rise BRIEFLY Weak report strengthens Fed's arguments against raising interest rates By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Unemployment edged up slightly in September to 5.2 percent. The weaker- than-expected jobs report sent Wall Street soaring to a record high as investors became convinced the Federal Reserve will not have to raise interest rates. The Dow Jones industrial average gained 60.01 to close at 5,992.86, just shy of the 6,000 milestone. Strong demand pushed the yield on 30-year Treasury bonds, a good barometer of inflation concerns, down to 6.73 percent, the lowest level hi nearly two months. Economists said Friday's surprisingly weak jobs report would strengthen the hand of Federal Reserve Board members who have United States employment ONDJFMAMJJAS 1995 1996 Source: Department ol Labor been opposing any hike in interest rates on the grounds that the economy was already slowing on its own. Some predicted the Fed would hold rates steady through the rest of this year and into 1997. The Clinton administration, which has made the good economy a centerpiece of its re-election effort, was smiling as well, contending that the Labor Department re- port depicted the best of all worlds — steady, sustainable growth with low inflation. The 5.2 percent September jobless rate marked only a slight uptick from the seven-year low of 5.1 percent set in August. "The economy continues to simmer along without boiling over," said Labor Secretary Robert Reich. "Main Street ought to be delighted because the rate of unemployment continues to be remarkably low and Wall Street should be delighted because the economy is not overheating." Friday's report came as a surprise to many analysts, who had been forecasting a rise of about 170,000 payroll jobs in September. Instead, jobs fell by 40,000, the first setback since January. The weakness was centered in manufacturing, where widespread layoffs accounted for a loss of 57,000 jobs. Employment at local schools was down by 67,000, but analysts discounted this decline as a statistical aberration in the government's seasonal adjustment procedures. The August gain was overstated as schools started earlier than usual, and this depressed the September performance. Bureau of Labor Statistics Commissioner Katharine G. Abraham said a truer picture was reflected by the fact that school employment is up 157,000 workers from a year ago. But discounting the statistical quirks, private economists said there were reassuring signs that job market growth is slowing to a more sustainable pace and the Federal Reserve does not need to worry about boosting interest rates. The central bank at its Sept. 24 meeting passed up a chance to raise rates even though there had been widespread expectations that tightening labor markets would trigger a pre-emptive strike against inflation.

A Whitacre associate faxed a copy of the statement to The Associated Press. Two weeks ago ADM sued Whitacre for more than $30 million. Whitacre, reached by telephone at his Chapel Hill, N.C., office, confirmed the document was authentic but said it had not been filed in any court. ADM's lawsuit says Whitacre stole more than $9 million from the company before and during his undercover work for an FBI price-fixing probe. Whitacre, who was fired after the probe became public knowledge, says the millions were under-the-table payments common for top executives of the self-styled "supermarket to the world." Whitacre has said he plans to sue ADM for wrongfully firing him. Many of Whitacre's claims in the statement — including allegations that ADM officials saw customers as "the enemy" and fixed prices on several products — have been aired before. But Whitacre has now joined a group of Missouri cattle farmers in accusing the grain-processing giant of selling cattle feed knowing it could harm young cattle. Group upset Payless stock is paying less KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A group of investors has acquired nearly 5 percent of Payless Cashways stock and has been pressuring the home-improvement retailer's ; management. "The shareholders have been virtually wiped out, and I think that this company's management has to do something and they have to do something now," said Marc Kozberg, a Minneapolis shareholder who leads the investment group. Kozberg said Wednesday the group is unhappy that Payless'. • stock has gone from around $19 a share in early 1994 to below $2. ;. Payless closed Friday at $2 a , ; share. Rate OK pulled from Western Resources WICHITA — A rate-reduction settlement reached between the. Kansas Corporation Commission and Western Resources must be renegotiated because a tax adjustment was overlooked, the KCC said. But Western Resources would , not commit to a larger decrease than the $64.7 million drop al- • ready negotiated, despite the $32.2 million error. "We are not going to speculate on what the final number will be," Western Resources spokeswoman Michel' Philipp, said. "We" are looking at a variety of different options."
