THE SALINA JOURNAL Money WEDNESDAY, MAY 14, 1997 03 T ECONOMY Retail spending goes down in April BRIEFLY Slow start to second quarter could keep interest rates down By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — After splurging during the first two months of the year. American consumers pulled back in April. Retail sales — about one-third of economic activity — fell a seasonally adjusted 0.3 percent last month, the biggest decline in 10 months, the Commerce Department said Tuesday. It's evidence of a slow start to the second quarter that economists believe might just persuade Federal Reserve policymakers next week to postpone raising interest rates. "It's a pretty close call," said economist Stuart Hoffman of PNC Bank Corp., Pittsburgh. "I think the Fed will hold off at their May 20 meeting and bide a little bit of time to assess the strength of the economy." Hoffman said he wouldn't be surprised if the central bank followed up its quarter-point tightening of March 25 with another quarter- point increase, bringing the benchmark rate on overnight loans between banks to 5.75 percent. But, more likely, policymakers will hold off until early July, he said. That prospect cheered financial markets. Stock and bond prices rose after the report's release, but later gave back the early gains after Al Broaddus, president of the Fed's regional bank in Richmond, said both consumer spending and credit demand are growing rapidly — an environment that normally would provoke at least a moderate increase in interest rates.

April's retail sales decline, to a seasonally adjusted $212.4 billion, was broad-based, with restaurants and bars recording the only increase, 0.5 percent. Both automotive and department-store sales fell a sharp 0.9 percent. Receipts slipped 0.6 percent at clothing and accessory stores, 0.5 percent at food stores, 0.3 percent at furniture dealers and 0.1 percent at both gasoline stations and drug stores. They were unchanged at building-supply and hardware stores. Analysts attributed part of the pullback to scattered autoworkers' strikes and to a cold, rainy spring. Sales had surged 1.6 percent in January and 1.3 percent in February, before holding steady in March. The shopping spree helped power a torrid 5.6 percent growth rate in the overall economy in the first quarter and raised concern that the powerful demand would fuel inflation.

Falley's Inc., owner of Food-4- Less grocery stores, can't be held liable for the actions of meat cutter Loren bind and produce manager Chuck Sobke, Judge Maria Luckert ruled in an opinion filed April 17. ' In June 1995, Lind and Sobke left the Food-4-Less where they worked to chase after a man they believed stole a purse from a 70- year-old customer. The two chased Christopher Siefer, who was later charged in the incident. Two other people, Terry and Nicholas Mongold, saw Siefer leaving the area and followed him in their truck. The Mongolds picked up Lind and Sobke and the four continued the pursuit. According to court documents, the four caught up with Siefer. Seifer dropped the handbag and fled, but the foursome caught Siefer and a fight broke out. Siefer had to be resuscitated by police, according to the ruling. A conservator of the Siefer estate, Margo Burson, filed a civil lawsuit against Falley's Inc. and the Mongolds for great bodily harm, seeking more than $50,000. The Mongolds were dismissed from the case earlier last month. Digital sues Intel for patent infringement BOSTON — In a clash of computer industry titans that could involve billions of dollars, Digital Equipment Corp. is suing Intel Corp., accusing it of copying Digital technology in designing the powerful Pentium chip. In a federal lawsuit filed Monday, Digital claims that Intel, the world's biggest maker of computer chips, infringed on Digital patents. "Our goal is very simple: to stop Intel from unlawfully using Digital's patented technology in its present and future microprocessor products," Robert Palmer, Digital chairman and chief executive, said Tuesday. Nearly all of Intel's $5.2 billion in profits last year came from the chips in question. The suit seeks triple damages, but Palmer refused to say how much money that might be. Tom Waldrop, a spokesman for Santa Clara, Calif.-based Intel, said of the lawsuit: "We will defend against it vigorously." General Motors stung third labor strike by DETROIT -- General Motors was hit with a third strike Tuesday when 8,500 unionized electronics workers who make the circuit boards and cables used in nearly every GM vehicle walked out. If the strike lasts at GM's Delphi Packard Electric Systems complex in Warren, Ohio., it could force the GM to shut down assembly plants across North America. The dispute by the International Union of Electronic Workers is largely over job security and fears that the automaker plans to shift more jobs to Mexico. They join 9,400 members of the United Auto Workers who have been on strike since last month at GM assembly plants in Oklahoma City and Pontiac, Mich.
