TWELVE BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEW8 WEDNESDAY, JULY 1C, J9.17 Coal Mine Owner Discusses Costs ....,. . .t - .Wage Hike Conforms To Pattern Set for Other Industries WASHINGTON. July 10. (UP) — George M. Humphrey, one of die nation's largest coal operators, said today that the miners' new »age Increase conforms to the 15- cent hourly wage raise pattern and should eventually result in "more coal at less cost " The chairman of the Pittsburgh Consolfdation Coal Co. Told the joint congressional economic committee there is "nothing wildly Inflationary or grossly unreasonable" In the SI 20 a day wage boost recently granted John L. Lewis' United Mine Workers. ' Recognizing that conl costs already have been increased 15 cents to $1 a ton, with some coal prices already boosted, Humphrey declarer!: I "If the co-operation which hns been promised by the miners' union is realized--- and it is much more apt to do so by satisfactory mutual agreement than by strikes and government controls — increasing production and increasing efficiency will surely mean more coal at less cost. " "It Is only reasonable to expect that these higher prices will gradually be adjusted downward when as n result of this agreement it becomes apparent that production will continue and a supply of coal will be currently available." he said. The coal man testified after the National Association ot Manufacturers asserted that prices h»ve kept "-well in line" since the end of price controls last year while production "most certainly has gone up." - And Gen. Robert E. Wood, board chairman ft! Sears Roebuck & Co , said that his company's Fall catalogue shows a small decline in prices for the first time in seven Heading for Century Mark/ Missco Bond Sales Near $70,000 Mark U. S.
