SUNDAY, DECEMBER 22,1957 THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE ud LOGANSPQRT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA PAGE TWENTY-ONE Cor Price Hike Helped Set New C. Of L Record WASHINGTON W)—Living costs rose again in November to a high level. The boost, continuing a long upward climb, means a pay raise early next year for about a mil^lion workers in steel, aluminum, meat packing and the aircraft industries. Their wages are keyed to living cost changes. The higher price tags on 1958 model automobiles were the main reason for the November living cost rise. These costs averaged 11.5 per cent higher than 1957 new car prices in October. Costs of clothing and services also rose; food declined seasonally. The Labor Department index for November rose by four-tenths of a per cent after having leveled off in October from a steady 13- month climb. The index has hit a , record in 14 out of ,the past 15 months. At 121.6 per cent of the 1947-49 average, the latest consumers' index puts living costs for November at 3.2 per cent above a year earlier. Ewan Clague, labor statistics commissioner, said that except for the jump in new car prices November living costs would have risen little or not at all: He said the auto prices may decline when dealers give higher discounts in coming months. But Clague indicated little hope of any appreciable over - all decline in living costs this winter. Food, for example, has hit what probably is a bottom point after the fall harvests and is likely to move upward again. Costs for all types of services, including rents and medical care, have consistently edged up. But clothing and appliances probably will take a usual dip in prices. The government also reported another decline in worker purchasing power. It said this was because of higher living costs and fewer wage dollars due to a decline in working hours. Clague said buying power of the wage earner's dollar is less than in 1955. About 700,000 steel workers and 100,000 aluminum industry workers get a five-cent-an-hour pay boost based on the new living cost level. Anotier 100,000 workers in meat packing get a four-cent hourly raise, and 100,000 in miscellaneous industries, mainly aircraft, one cent.
