PAflWUfO BLTTWBTn,LB (ARK.) COURIER NBTTI Rail Freight Hikes Top List Of Rising Business Costs By SAM DA'WSON NEW YORK lAP) - Costs are on the rise again in a number of business fields. Fur- to pay for new highways. The price of things made of steel and copper has tended higher of late — due to excess o! demand over supply, as well as to labor costs. Steelworkers and miners are discussing new wage demands for summer. Some two million workers got a pay hike when the federal minimum wage rose to $1 an hour recently. Wage Hikes Due Automatic wage increases for perhaps 2% million others are in the cards this year under existing union-management contracts. The Textile Workers Union is out to thaw a five-year wage freeze for employes in. New England mills. ' " All these wage increases add to the total of consumers' spending money, to the joy of merchants. But they also add to the cost of doing business for many another When the cost can't be absorbed out of profit margins, or when it can't be offset by more output per man hour, prices go up. Sees Danger "People who think the slackening in automobile output and housing construction has relieved inflationary dangers should take account of these cost-price pressures," the First National City Bank of New York says in its March bank letter. It sees a danger that wage Increases "may force up costs and prices to a point where farmers and other people who do not have equivalent increases in income cannot buy." That could bring a drop in sales and in time an increase in unemployment. There is an alternative, the bank economists note. Higher prices may be "validated by inflation of demand through excessive credit expansion." The Bankers take a dim view of this "choice of evils." T High Schooler Must Shed His Beard in June.
