A4 THURSDAY, OCTOBER 17, 1996 Money THE SALINA JOURNAL TECONOMY Higher prices fail to slow Dow's rise Increase in food prices fuels 0.3 percent rise in Consumer Price Index By JOHN D. McCLAIN The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Higher food prices and one-time jumps in the cost of cars, clothing and air fares helped boost consumer inflation 0.3 percent in September. Analysts said the increase would fade as the temporary irritants disappear. Still, the moderate rise in the Consumer Price Index initially caused disquiet in the financial markets, exacerbated later by reports of escalating infighting among political factions in Russia. Bond prices slumped after the inflation report but managed a mild rebound by the end of the day. The yield on the 30-year Treasury note — a key determinant of corporate and consumer borrow- Percent change, month to month, seasonally adjusted. 0.8% 0.6 0.4 0.2 -0.2 OND 1995 J FMAMJ J AS 1996 Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics AP ing costs — eased back down to 6.85 percent from its 6.88 percent high for the day. Stocks also ended higher: After an initial dip below 6,000, the Dow Jones industrial average rose 16.03 to 6,020.81, beating by almost 11 points Monday's record finish, the first-ever above 6,000. The Labor Department noted Wednesday that September's gain in the CPI was steeper than the 0.1 percent increase in August but matched the 0.3 percent advance in July. The rise met analysts' expectations. Consumer prices rose at a 3.2 percent annual rate during the first nine months of 1996. Excluding the volatile food and energy components, the so-called core rate of inflation was up just 2.8 percent. The CPI rose 2.5 percent for all of 1995. "The water table is slightly higher, but we're well below flood stage," economist Stuart Hoffman of PNC Bank Corp. in Pittsburgh said of the latest price report. "This is further evidence that consumer inflation remains locked in a 2.75 percent-3 percent range." Cynthia Latta, an economist at DRI-McGraw-Hill, a Lexington, Mass., forecasting service, agreed that "we might be seeing the leading edge of a little acceleration in inflation." She said, however, the report by itself will not persuade the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates to slow the economy and keep inflation in check. Many analysts believe the economy has shown recent signs of moderating on its own and does not need the braking effect of a rate increase. Food prices rose 0.5 percent in September, led by a 2.6 percent jump in fresh fruit. Prices for pork were up 1.6 percent; poultry, 0.8 percent; and beef, 0.6 percent. But fresh vegetable costs fell 4.1 percent, including declines of 3.7 percent for tomatoes and 0.7 percent for lettuce. Energy costs went unchanged as drops of 0.7 percent for natural gas and 0.4 percent for gasoline offset increases of 4.5 percent in fuel oil and 0.2 percent for residential electricity.

If the Federal Aviation Administration concurs with the recommendations of the National Transportation Safety Board, Boeing and the airlines would be required to make safety modifications on the 2,800 Boeing 737s in fleets around the world. Such a development could cost the airline industry and Boeing tens of millions of dollars, but Boeing said it's too early to tell exactly how much or the part of the total that Boeing or the airlines would have to pay. Thomas McSweeny, the FAA's director of aircraft certification, said the NTSB recommendations would be given "a lot of serious consideration." "Broadly speaking ... they're in the area that we're looking at," McSweeny said. The NTSB action came as American Airlines announced in Fort Worth, Texas, that it is installing a new navigation system designed to prevent crashes like one in Colombia last December: a jetliner slammed into a mountainside and killed all but four of the 163 people aboard. The NTSB's 14 recommenda- The NTSB's 14 recommendations follow exhaustive investigations into unsolved crashes in Pennsylvania and Colorado. Many safety experts have theorized about rudder problems in both cases. tions follow exhaustive investigations into unsolved crashes in Pennsylvania and Colorado. Many safety experts have theorized about rudder problems in both cases. Under the recommendations, Boeing would be required to develop and install cockpit indicators in new 737s to provide details on rudder positions and movements. For existing 737s, the same system would-be required. The FAA has 90 days to respond to the recommendations. NTSB Chairman Jim Hall said the agency's proposals were developed during studies of the two crashes and other incidents and should make a safe plane even safer. Boeing spokesman Tim Neale said the rudder system already has been redesigned for newer-model 737s in production. The design change was needed because the aircraft is bigger than older models, not because of safety shortcomings, he said.
