PACE TWO BLYTHEVILLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS ».TDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1MO New Home or Apartment Fixtures Going to Cost More in Future •T SAM DAWSON • NSW YORK, Dec. 8. (APi— That new home or apartment U going to cott mort to fix up. C4rpet mills ire just darting on their »ev«nth price-hike round ot th< year. Makers of linoleum and other hard-surfaced floor coverings have also begun raising prices. Furniture makers are telling dealers that higher price tags may be tacked to chairs, tables and beds In trie coming January markets. Even :. m •'Jew dealers In an- tifques are Ultcing about shortages «nd rising prices In the luxury furniture and bric-a-brac they buy and sell. , Grand Rapids furniture men warns of coming cuts in civilian supplies of some of Ihe critical materials they use, such as copper and Fed Up with Set Up, Red-Head Slashes Singer in 3 a.m. Brawl And furniture workers are reported restive again after the recent wage boosts in the nearby auto plants. All this could add up to higher prices. And it could also mean a scarcity In popular priced furniture as scarce materials are routed to higher priced more profitable lines. Carpet Sales Up Carpet makers report production and sales ; up 10 per cent over last year—but costs of materials soaring out of sight. Carpet wool prices are at least two and a half times «s high as a year a^o, Industry sources :say, adding that the price of wool accounts for about 40 per cent of the cost of making a carpet. The carpet mills also cite Increased costs of labor and of other materials that go into their rugs. The cotton 'yams they use are up 50 per cent hi price this year. But It is wool that gets most of the blame for the v seven rounds of price hikes this year. Production of wool, for all purposes, has been steadily falling behind consumption demands since World War II. The United States' own sheep population fell off sharply, although the president of the National Wool Growers Association, how meeting In Casper, Wyo., says that wool production is on the upgrade ugaln here. However, the country still has to ; import.most of its wool for all its needs. And since the Korean outbreak the price of fine wool has gone up 45 per cent, dragging the other grades behind It. U.S. government wool orders for Its military needs have made the shortage still more acute. HOIJA'WOOD, Dec. ».
