Nationally, the median price of existing homes rose 4 percent to $119,400 — meaning half sold for more and half for less, the National Association of Realtors said Thursday. In the Midwest, the median price jumped 5.6 percent to $102,000, double the 2.8 percent inflation rate over the period. The South did well, too, posting a 3.9 percent gain to $102,900. Housing markets in the Northeast were more sluggish, with the median rising 2.2 percent to $141,700. In the West, the median increased 3.1 percent to $153,700. "In the Midwest, manufacturing is doing well and when the (local) econo- my is, doing well, the housing market will do pretty well, too," said economist Kim Kennedy of Cahners Economics in Newton, Mass. Nationally, home prices should continue to advance faster than inflation in the next year, though not quite as much as 4 percent. Kennedy and other analysts said. "Clearly it's a major positive for consumers' confidence that their homes are appreciating and that they have a solid investment in addition to any gains they may have made in mutual funds," said economist Lynn Reaser of Barnett Banks Inc. in Jacksonville, Fla. In the year ended in March, the three markets with the biggest price gains were Greenville, S.C., up 15.8 percent to $111,100; Mobile, Ala., up 13.3 percent to $89,400; and Aurora, 111., up 11.9 percent to $147,100. The solid gains in the South partly reflect the long-term demographic trend of people moving from the Northeast to the South and West, Reaser said. But prices declined in 31 of the 131 metropolitan areas surveyed by the real estate trade group. Values fell 13.9 percent in Bradenton, Fla., to $86,500; 7.9 percent in Gary, Ind., to $88,100; and 5.4 percent in Honolulu to $313,800. Reaser said Bradenton's housing market is healthy and the drop in the median price probably reflected a shift in the mix of sales toward smaller homes. The price had risen 14.7 percent in the previous year. "Basically, it's just some return to a more normal level," she said. "But if you just looked at the headline, you'd think it was in trouble." Honolulu, still the nation's priciest market despite the decline, has been hurt by a decline in tourism and investment from Japan, she said. However, in the second most expensive market, San Francisco, the median price rose 7.5 percent to $271,100, reflecting the booming computer and high- tech industries. But the median fell 1.7 percent in Los Angeles to $169,200. NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE Name Div.

Feist to offer phone services in Salina Salina telephone customers have a second company to turn to for both their local and long-distance phone services. Wichita-based Feist Long Distance will begin offering local telephone services Wednesday to Kansans eligible for Southwestern Bell services. Valu-Line, an Emporia-based long-distance carrier with an office at 157 S. Seventh, began offering local services in March in Salina and 10 other central and eastern Kansas towns. Feist requires local telephone service customers to use their long-distance telephone service. There is no charge to switch local telephone service to Feist, and customers can keep their original telephone number. Feist's basic residential telephone rates range from $8 to $16 each month, depending on where a customer lives. The costs are about 10 percent less than Southwestern Bell's basic local service rates, Feist said. America Online to add ABC Sports events DULLES, Va. — America Online Inc. said it will feature Walt Disney Co.'s ABC Sports unit on its Sports Channel site, giving users access to events such as college football, the Indianapolis 500 and the Kentucky Derby. Terms of the agreement weren't released. The site is still under development, the companies said. Plans call for such features as live results and statistics from sports events the network is covering. The two companies said they will work together on advertising and marketing ventures.

Retail sales increase 2.9 percent in April NEW YORK — U.S. retail sales rose in April as bargain-hunters boosted sales at discount chains, offsetting lower gains at full-price retailers due to cool weather delaying purchases of spring clothing. Same-store sales rose 2.9 percent in April, according to the BTM survey. Among discounters, Wal-Mart Stores Inc. posted a 6.1 percent increase, while sales at Dayton Hudson's Target chain rose 6.7 percent. Many full-price retailers are keeping inventories low, which has kept markdowns to a minimum and forced shoppers to look elsewhere for bargains, analysts said. Kmart Corp. was one discounter that didn't fare well in April, as sales fell 0.8 percent. US Airways to cut flights to nine cities ARLINGTON, Va. — US Airways Group Inc. said it will end service in September to nine cities, ground 22 planes and reduce capacity for the summer of 1998 by 6.5 percent from the year- earlier period. As of Sept. 4, service will end in Albuquerque, New Mexico; Austin and San Antonio, Texas; Bangor, Maine; Cincinnati; Daytona Beach and Melbourne, Florida; and Islip and Newburgh, New York. US Airways spokesman Rick Weintraub said Thursday's actions are part of the company's ' ongoing restructuring.
