PAOE SIX Bill SEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER HEWB , JTTKTE 19, IfW Prices Show Signs Of Going Up Again By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (AP) — Prices of many important Items — In the fields of food, clothing and basic industrial materials are bucking the general trend toward lower levels. Prices of most, products and ina- terials have slipped from tlieir Korean War Inflation war prat. But an important minority are firming up again or threatening to climb higher. And the government's wholesale commodity price index still stands 10 per cent above Its level when the war began almost three years ago. Producers of items on which the price trend Is upward apparently see nothing to halt this trend. High fliers in foods are pork, lamb and rice. Short supplies and good demand keep these prices well above their year ago prices. Food Rising The wholesale food price index nf Dun & Bradstreet has been rising again and is now two per cent higher than a year ago. The government's wholesale food price index— vhlch is not as sensitive to price fluctuations as is Dun & Bradstreet's —is four per cent below a year _ But it, too, has been stiffening and runs one per cent higher than in January. Some of this firming in the wholesale markets hasnt shown up yet in the grocery stores, where housewives find many good bargains—compared with a year ago. And the government's retail food price index is one per cent below the first of the year and two per cent below a year ago. Farm Prices Down Farmers, however, find little to cheer about. Farm prices average 11 per cent under last year's level. Wool prices have stiffened. The men's clothing industry says that steel products now carry higher try that the price of basic «te«l i« still too low. Wage negotiations now under way may send steel prices still higher price listings. And there is continued rumbling throughout the Indus- Management says that any wage Increases granted must be passed along to the consumer in higher prices. this price gain, and more importantly an increase in wages, will mean higher prices on men's suits this fall. In the fled of basic industrial materials, steel has been the leader in price rises this spring. Most of the Nashville CPA Named to Post HOT SPRINGS . (£>)•—Accountant R*y G.
