Cos Angeles (Time6 Business in Brief Selected Interest Rates AilHAufS u tWU tUttStkjjtrj (Hi I 2 Part IV Monday. August 2.?. 1482 400 Market Basket workers were not hired by Ralphs. Ralphs (.nnvry Co.. which assumed ow norship of Hi Market Basket stores this week, ai-knowledged thai il hirotl 1.C.00 of the former 2.-IK0 v. ho w ore employ ihI al the Markel Basket out It-is.

Ralphs, unlike Market Basket, operates central meat -culling ami bakery opera -uons. The Ralphs spokesman said, however, thai as sales built at ihe various former Market Basket stores, the chain may seek additional personnel. Anti-inflation policies are essential, the IMF said. Despite the deep economic suffering resulting from the industrial nations' slow-moving battle against inflation, the effort should be continued, the International Monetary Fund said in its annual report. The 146-nation lending organization urged governments to stick to their restrictive anti-inflation policies rather than turn to politically popular measures that might induce a fleeting prosperity in the short-term but even worse problems down the road. The fund also acknowledged that 1982 is shaping up as a year of poor economic performance around the world. Del Webb completed the sale of the Sahara Vegas casino. Debt -burdened Del E. Webb Corp.. Phoenix, said the $50-million sale of the flagship of its shrunken casino empire is part of the financial restructuring program begun a year ago. The new owner. Paul Lowden. once a Las Vegas lounge musician, also owns the Hacienda hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip. In 1972. Lowden became a part owner of the Hacienda when it was bought by Allen R. Click, who later owned the Stardust and Fremont until he was stripped of his casino license in a skimming scandal. Webb previously sold its Sahara Reno. It still owns three other Nevada casinos, the Mint in Las Vegas, LOANS:Wait Continued from First Page "Obviously, if you make a variable-rate loan and you know the first rate adjustment will be sharply downward, you might want to think about making a fixed-rate loan," Frank said. But that's likely to leave the consumer in a quandary unsure whether to take a predictable fixed-rate mortgage at a higher rate on the gamble that rates will rebound and it will become a bargain or a volatile adjustment-rate loan at a lower rate on the bet that it will be cheaper in the long run. Some lenders already are limiting themselves to making fixed-rate loans but for another reason. These loans are the easiest to sell in the so-called secondary market, where investors purchase loans for investment purposes. But the largest secondary markets are two quasi-governmental agencies: the Federal National Mortgage Assn., often called Fannie Mae, and the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corp., known as Freddie Mac. And for a loan to qualify for purchase by one of them, it may not exceed S 107 .000 a relatively paltry sum in light of California home prices. Despite the uncertainties and difficulties, savings and loans and other lenders nonetheless are encouraged by the falling prime rate, the booming stock market and the prospect of a somewhat reduced federal budget deficit as a result of impending tax increases. "The direction, the trend is very attractive." said Christopher of Home Fed. And. on Friday, additional lenders joined the downhill trend. Gibraltar Savings & Loan Assn., a Los Angeles-based S&L among the state's 10 largest, reduced its price on a fixed-rate. 30-year loan with a S107.000 maximum to 15 from 16.5. In Sacramento, Capital Savings & Loan moved its prime mortgage loan with the same terms to 15.25 from 15.75. Meanwhile. Frank was confident that wherever rates settle they will be lower than recent experience. Asked what he would tell a consumer who called Thursday to ask about First Nationwide's current rate, he said: "We'd tell you to call back in a few davs. The rate would be lower." 2 California Firms Will Drill Off Chinas Coast Atlantic Richfield Co.. Los Angeles, and Santa Fe International Corp., Alhambra. said they agreed with the China National Offshore Oil Corp. to explore for and produce oil and gas in a large block in the South China Sea. The - offshore area is south of Hainan Island and is part of the same area where Arco and Santa Fe conducted seismic and geophysical studies and operations under an earlier agreement with China.

Remarks published in the Roman Catholic weekly II Salulo referred to the bank's links to Italy's Banco Ambrosiano. which was forced into liquidation Aug. t. They were made by Cardinal Giovanni lit-nelli. former Vatican deputy secretary of stale and once a leading papal candidate. Bunco Ambrosiano is partly owned by the Vatican Bank, headed by American-lwrn Archbishop Paul Marcinkus. Without naming Mar-cinkus. Bt-nelli was quoted as saying: "If there was any imprudence, it was because of incompetence and inexperience." Under Marcinkus" predecessor, he continued, "everything was tranquil." Marcinkus has been summoned to testify in the scandal. SAP said Lombard-Wall bonds appeared safe from default. Standard & Poor's Inc.. the major rating agency, said a preliminary review concluded that municipal bonds tied up in bankruptcy proceedings of the Lombard-Wall Inc. securities firm were secure enough to require no lowering of credit ratings. A day earlier, the other major rating agency. Moody's Investors Service Inc.. suspended its ratings on eight bond and on 30 note issues as a result of certain transactions with New York -based Lombard-Wall and its Lombard-Wall Money Markets Inc. subsidiary. The action affected six issues of the New York Dormitory Authority and issues in 1 1 other states. Anheuser-Busch picked a possible plant site. The St. Louis-based brewing company selected Fort Collins as the location of a future brewery provided it decides to build one in Colorado. At the same time, An-heuser Busch discontinued discussions with two other cities in the state as possible locations for a new plant. Last summer, the brewing firm disclosed its possible interest in building a lirewt rv m Colorado, I hi-headquarters of Attolph I'oors Co Braniff wants to end pension plans for 9400 ex-employees.

A spokesman for the federal agency said the required subsidy might be $70 million or more, well above the largest pension bailout thus far of $60 million.

"We have a unique product, and we'll just stress that rather than attack our competitors by name as they are doing." Long says. Prince says it now has almost 40 of the quality racket market and AMF-Head has about 24. The rest is split among Wilson. Donnay and Dunlop. "When you're No. 1 you're always under attack," Long says. But AMF-Head has the price advantage. Its rackets sell for about $50 below those of Prince. While Prince rackets start at $65, its top graphite sells for $295. The graphite Director has a retail price of about $250. So far. the companies haven't begun to bid against each other for endorsements from the really top names in the world of tennis. But Litke acknowledges that such endorsements would be worth a great deal of money. Now. with the takeover by Chesebrough-Pond's, the once small Prince would seem to have a great deal of money to throw into the marketing fight.

Companies are. in effi unloading their "best" debt. Criticized as 'Gimmickry' Abraham J. Bnloff. accountancy professor at ihe ;,i ruch College of the City I niversity of New York arid leading critic of the profession, descnlros the gains 'ha' result from retiring low-intercsi debt as "gimmickr. " that "certainly doesn't belong in income." Companies, he says, are recognizing today the s.r. -ings that they would otherwise realize by paying off old debt in the future at lower-than-markct rates. As such, he contends, the gains should be spread over those years, rather than be recognized in a single quarter But analysts unanimously acknowledge thai the t,,-.. benefits of such swaps are attractive. "Here we have a way to swap equity for debt rha' seems to be pretty cost-efficient." says William Sahl-man. an assistant professor of finance at Harvard Business School. "An awful lot of finance has to do with taxes." Not surprisingly, the companies that have done such swaps are among their most avid supporters. 'Much Stronger Position' "Il put us in a much stronger position." says Charles A. Markel. assistant treasurer of Duke Power Co. in Charlotte, N.C. "Investors would view us as a stronger company." In what ranks as the third-largest swap ever. Duke Power exchanged common stock worth S7R.3 million for debt that carried a face value of $1 19.9 million and averaged 7 interest. The one-time gain was almost $50 million, Markel says. but. more important, it increased the equity portion of the company's capital to 41 from 39 and relieved it of about $9 million in annual interest payments. While the popularity of such swaps is growing, "we certainly have not been recommending them to every company." says First Boston's Einiger. "I think it's-clear they're not for everyone." "It's a market-timing call, pure and simple." says Lloyd McAdams. chief executive of Security Pacific Investment Managers, a unit of Los Angeles-based Security Pacific Corp. Analysts say that investment bankers have, in their haste to accumulate old bonds, overpaid the holders in some cases. Similarly, if interest rates rise higher, the price of outstanding bonds will fall further, making today's swaps look less attractive. May Be Diluting Earnings Companies, too, may be issuing stock when its price is unusually low, in essence giving away more equity than they should and diluting the earnings of present shareholders. Whenever a company issues new stock, its income is spread over a larger number of shares and its closely watched earnings-per-share ratio may drop. Proponents of swaps, however, say that earnings dilution is often offset by the advantage of having a better debt-to-equity ratio. Investors, they say. are willing to settle for lower earnings per share in exchange for an investment that is less risky. To ease some of the potential problems, investment banks are coming up with new forms of swaps. First Boston, for example, has begun arranging what it calls "leveraged debt-equity swaps," through which clients may repurchase debt through a combination of newly issued stock and cash. The advantage, it says, is that such deals retain the tax-free feature of other swaps, but lessen earnings dilution. Companies also are turning to other methods of wiping debt from their balance sheets. Exxon Corp.. for instance, retired $515 million in debt by giving a trustee, Morgan Guaranty Trust Co.. government securities worth $312 million.
