WASHINGTON, May 10. (UPI — Big strikes next week could change Ihlngs, but as of now— This country I 5 doing a whale of a lot of business. Tilings slacked off a little In January and February, and the coal strike didn't do Industrial production any good in March and April. But the general trend Is now UD again Prices and personal income still have some way lo go before tney regain the peaks of last December and eai'ly January. But they seem to be on their way. That Is the general picture to be outlined In next week's "Business Indicators," a monthly report-bv the president's Council of Economic Advisers. Details of the picture: Prices—Wholesale prices of Industrial goods made what the economists call an "upward creep" in April Wholesale food prices almost got back to where they we/e In early January. Farm prices picked up about two-fifth, o/ the January- February drop. Consumcrs-Food prices paid by city families dropped slightly In March. Rent nnd clothing however cost somewhat more. No figures' »re available on consumer prli|; s In April. Farmers Did Bclfcr Farnicrs-The farmers did a little better in April than they did f oo r = C , h ^ BUt thclr Apr " lnc °' nc of $1,051,000,000 wns $23,000,000 under that of April, 1847. Moreover the prices they had to pay were "substantially higher" than a year ago. their $1,851,000,000 bought tncjn no more thnn $972,000,000 bought (n 1035. Still, the prices they received advanced more In April ovor March than did the prices of things they bought. The index of prices received nnd prices paid was 2B3 and 247 In Match and 24D In April. For all of 1947 the index wns 278 and 231. ™?"i I>loymc " W1 ' h ' ; l ° l111 dropped 200.000 in Mnrcll to 57,300,000 But the outlook Is good. Labor Department experts expect employment lo rise from now on to more than 60,000,000 this Summer. Industrial production—The output of the kind of things the big Industries turn out fell in March from the high hit in February.'It probably dropped another three per cent In April. This was due to the coal strike. But before the strike's full effect was felt, Iron and steel producilon .rose^ln Inarch to .the highest point in> three yean.""'•• Other production — Petroleum coni, and textiles down three per cent In March. Smaller drops In manufactured food and chemical production. Personal income—After falling to an annual rale of $207,100,000,000 In February, personal income climbed to an annum rate of »208,5QO 000,000 in March. It has $1,600,000,'COO to go to get back up to the December high rate of $210,500000000. In & separate report, the Commerce Department said new construction In April amounted to $1 269,000,000, which is nine per cent above the figure for March. BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.)' COURIER NEW!
