r»AGE FOURTEEN BLYTHKVILLE <«ARK.) COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, SEPT. M, It Cost of Living Index Reaches New High Mark Higher Food, Rent Prices Push Figure To 115 PerCent •WASHINGTON m—Higher iooi prices and rents pushed the gov ernment's cost of living index t a record high mark today. The rise to 115 per cent of the 1947-1949 average means a three cent hourly wage boost, effectivi next month, for 1,300,000 rail work ers. This will boost annual pay roll costs of the railroads by 100 rail- lion dollars. The index figure announced today records living costs as of Aug 15. It advanced three-tenths of one per cent from the month previous. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) said beef and veal prices went up six per, cent — the largest increase for these meats in an} single month in more than five years. This increase, coupled with smaller rises in other food costs, pushed the food index up three-tenths of one per cent. Rents advanced 1.1 per cent during the month. Federal rent controls expired July 31. On that date, 16 of 46 major cities surveyed for the monthly cost of living index still had federal rent controls. Transportation . Another contributing factor to the record high reading was a seven-tenths of one per cent increase in transportation cost, caused primarily by a transit fare increase in the highly-populated New York area. Higher gasoline and oil prices also contributed, but BLS noted that used car prices continued downward, somewhat offsetting these increases in the transportation index. Also higher Were these items: medical care, up two-tenths of one per cent because of more expensive hospital rooms; reading and recreation, also up two-tenths of one per cent because of higher ad mission charges for movie theaters; and the "personal care and other goods and services," a catchall category, up one-tenth of one per cent. Off one-tenth of one per cent during the month were clothing prices. Fresh fruiU and fresh rege- U.N. (Continued from P*«e » date for the peace conference.

Allied radar has tracked arriving Red planes, Anderson said A North Korean pilot who fled lo South Korea Monday reported jet and propeller planes were moved Into North Korea alter the truce. The young North Korean flier who brought a nearly new, undamaged MIG15 to South Korea Monday vanished after giving a Seoul Tuesday. He was believed to be still in the Seoul area, under intense questioning by American Intelligence officers. The North Korean will receive a $100.000 reward for bringing the U.N. Command its first operational MIG. The Communist jet was crated Tuesday and loaded aboard a giant C124 cargo plane which took it on the first leg of a trip to the United States. It will be taken to the Air Materiel Command at Dayton. Ohio, where experts will analyze it. The Allied Military Armistice Commission said Tuesday that four Americans repatriated in the prisoner exchange were listed, apparently by mistake, among 944 men for whom the Allies Sept. 9, demanded an accounting by the Reds. The four were not on the list of missing soldiers believed once in .ptivity which the Defense Department issued in Washington. 3ut an Allied spokesman here said the list released in Washington and the list handed the Communists could vary as new information became available. The presence of Red observers at Wednesday's final delivery of Allied-held POWs provoked the same kind of anti-Red outbreaks which flared at the start of the massive transfer Sept. 10. Some of the 1,098 sick and wounded captives threw stones, and shouted defiant curses at the Communists. They waved South Korean and Chinese Nationalist flags. Of some 22,600 anti-Bed prisoners delivered to the neutral zone, 22,575 are in Indian custody, the Allies said, including 14,699 Chinese and 7,876 Koreans.

"To remedy defects which cause concern on the part of working: men and women over possible results or uses of the act to their detrement." 2. "To insure administration of the act In the manner that Is efficient, speedy and impartial." 3. "To allow freedom for the healthy growth of trade unions while respecting the legitimate rights of individual workers, their employers and the general public." 4. "To work to the end that there be less rather than more government interference in labor-management affairs." Eisenhower said that soon after he took office he entrusted a study of the labor law to an informal committee of administration officials and legislative leaders. This committee, the President went, on, has "considered many specific proposals for amendment of the act, and is in substantial accord on a heartening number of Ihese." It's deliberations are continuing." the President said, "and you ;an be assured that its members :rom time to time will seek the counsel of your leaders. It will make its recommenaations to me before ;he end of the year. These recommendations — together with such others I may receive—will have my most careful study. I shall send my own suggestions to the Congress at the opening of its session n January." Sees Progress Eisenhower said the progress already made toward changing the law has been great and "looks toward-the fulfillment at the com- ng session --of Congress" of the pledges made by the Republicans .n last year's election campaign. On the White House-Durkin controversy, it was clear that there was at least a misunderstanding. Actually, the argument may be really a creampuff battle because suggesting amendments to Congress is a different thing than get- ing Congress. to approve them. However, Durkin's position is understood to be he wanted Eisenhower's support for the effect it •night have on Capitol Hill. As to Durkin's claim he had an agreement and the White House' denial that President Eisenhower I 'agreed to anything, Durkin re- I INDUSTRY (Continued p»«t » head > delegation hosting » New York dinner .party for officials of concerns doing business in Arkansas as well as prospective Arkansas manufacturers.

Yout/i Admits Murder Of Sweetheart UPPER SANDUSKY, Ohio HI— A quiet youth who planned lo become a minister Is in Wyandot County Jail today accused of viciously murdering his teen-ag* college sweetheart. The sheriff and prosecutor of Wyandot County say 19-year-old Roy Roger Schinagle Jr. of Mayfield Heights, confessed killii Cynthia Pfell, 19, White Pla N. Y. They say he sobbed a story last night of brutality that spun a bloody web from Delaware, in central Ohio, to a desolate patch of woods near here. They say Schinagle — described by neighbors in his Cleveland suburb as a "nice, quiet, youngster," —tore seventeen gashes in Cynthia's face with a lead pipe. They say that he strangled her and bruised her body. Schinagle signed a confession covering nine typewritten pages, Sheriff Dean McAllister said.
