PAGE TEN Many Expecting Inflation Ahead Trends Throughout r ~-.N.9t'on Support Newest 1 Prediction NEW YORK, Bee. IS. <AP>—Many observers believe that Wnlr Street, Washington and Pittsburgh—and apparently Main Street too —''ore -betting on Inflation ahead. Brokers report that the public Is coining into the stock market, and that there is a noticeable shift from bonds and preferred.^ to the buving of common stock-both trends'us- ually considered Indicators of imia- around the country. Washington is drafting uexl year's budget—in a financial almosphero niled by deficit financing, which means the pumping of new money into the business stream. Washington also notes that Installment credit is rising and that the authority to apply curbs has lapsed. And low interest rates and P.ISJ- money are still prime policy at the treasury, In spite of federal reserve criticism. All these are listed as inflationary. Pittsburgh sees stee! prices going tip, and figures that the steel companies wouldn't have taken thai step unless Ihey are betting on sustained steel demand in (he months ahead, and on general business speed-up such as accompanies the first phase of a new inflationary spiral. Would Bring New Kikes Steel being an essential raw material for about 40 per cent ol American industry, a price rise there can only mean higher production costs all along the line. Even if j competition forces some absorption' of the hike by steel processors, there seems bound to be some price rise to the consuming public for a multitude of goods in daily use. And In other cases, such as antos. where price declines had ben anticipated in the months just ahead, the increase of sa to $10 in the steel used in making a car, may halt the planned price cuts for cars. Already the appliance makers arc talking of raising their prices to meet the increased stee! charges. More Important, possibly, are the Indications that labor will use the stee! price hike as the springboard for asking pay hikes. The United Auto Workers (CIO) Union says it mil ask General Motors for a wage increase and for better pension and health insurance plans than it got from Ford. Steel workers seem sure to use the steel price hike as an er- cuse for starting the iifth round of •wage-price boosts next year. Until Inflation gets well underway, if It does, the cost of living wiJl show little of Us effects. That is because much of it is based on farm prices, and commodities continue to slide slowly it jerkily down. Rents, however, seem likely to rise. The textile market shows some strength again, so that clothing prices may not decline as much a.s some once hoped. BI.YTIIKVIU.K (ARK.) COURIER NRWS couldn't pay him bsick.

Why | don't you solve your own problems?" Bnt he never told thorn the source of hts own inner .serenity—which was a weight, machine in a driiK store near his office. This macinc- nge oracle told him all he felt he needed to know—for one red cent. Did some small trouble vex him? He stepped on the scales, slipped in a penny—and out dropped a card that gave him his weight and said: "You have an indomitable will power enabling you to overcome in triumph many trying eircumsian- ce.s." That restored his confidence at, once. Did he feel a little jaded and weary? The mechanical diplomat gave him its penny answer: "A proper selection of food will help you physically." !
