WASHINGTON — i NKA I — Your cost of living will slip upward this fall and winter. Six months from now. a $.-i.O<)0 a your salary will buy about $fi0 less. The price of almost everything you buy — except food — is going to rise a little Tins is what top economist s loresee ; It should lie easier to I mil a job this (all and winter if you ha\e aj skill of some sort — whether you're an anthropologist, a machine operator, a .secretary, a radio astronomer or skilled metal technician. You may find it dillicult — even in the boom — to find a job if you're a farm worker or it you are an unskilled laborer. In general, you'll have more money to spend—about lour per cent more than a year ago. Wages and salaries generally will continue upward at the rate of roughly four per cent a year through this fall, winter and next spring. Your state and local taxes will tend to move up in many localities If you want to borrow money, you'll laid that a little harder than i. has been. In some cases, interest rates will be up. Now tor the details: Prices — Generally, it will be the luxury goods — the luxury dresses, specialty foods, higher- priced home furnishings — thai will ris1> the most.

Food — Ham and pork -hnuld be cluvui Heel prices should dip a little. So should the cost of a variety ol other loods — peaches, perhaps apples, some vegetables.

(AP) —A space qapsulc like the one a Mercury astronaut will ride in orbit was blasted hundreds of miles out across the Atlantic today and quickly recovered intact. Space experts said main research objectives were met despite a mechanical mishap that shortened the flight. Carried Instruments The bottle-shaped steel chamber was hoisted aloft from this missile lest center at 2:1!) a.m. by a huge Atlas rocket, the vehicle chosen for the first manned flights. Instead of a man, however, it carried only instruments. All wont well on the launching itself but when the powerful first stage burned out after 2 minutes and 40 seconds it failed to disengage and fall away as planned. The resulting drag cut the flight short of the 100-mile altitude and 2,000-mile distance planned, but telemetry signals came back for 12 of the expected 20 minutes, indicating that much of the planned range had been achieved. Then signals were heard from the chamber itself, afloat on the water several hundred miles north of Barbados, and the chamber was quickly located by plane. 1 The USS Strong of the Navy flotilla patrolling the route sped to the scene and in Washington the National Aeronautics and Space Administration reported the capsule had been retrieved at 10:38 a.m. It had been sighted first. at 5:30. Performs Well The NASA announcement said a "quick look at data indicate that all of the system within the capsule performed as planned lor this test." "The fact that the capsule survived the severe reentry heating conditions is considered a major step forward in determining the' adequacy of the Mercury heat protection." Major Step The director of Project Mer­ cury, which is aimed at putting a man into orbit in 1061, rated the re-entry survival as probably a major step forward. He said the primary objective of the trial was to see how the capsule stood up under the heat and shock of coming back from a simulated orbital path. The blast-off came at 2:19 a.m. Less than four hours later a search plane reported it had sighted the floating capsule, several hundred miles short of its goal. Hear Adm. Harry Smith, commander of the recovery operation, did not pinpoint the location. He told a news conference that two destroyers were rushing to the spot. They were expected to arrive about 9:30 a. m. (EST). At first it was believed that the test of the capsule designed to carry the Mercury astronauts into space had been a complete failure. Booster Stays On The booster stage of the powerful Atlas rocket failed to drop off after burnout 2 minutes and 40 ; seconds after the blastoff, j The extra weight prevented the i main body of the rocket from traveling its full distance under I the power of its sustainer engine, i Robert Gilruth, Project Mercury I director, reported that the missile flew low and failed to obtain the I desired velocity. For that reason it fell several hundred miles short or its intended target area 2,000 miles down the Atlantic missile range. The Atlas was supposed to boost kthe one-ton capsule to a height of : 10C miles. Gilruth said he did not ' know how far up the Atlas actually went, but it was considerably below the 100-mile level, i Gilruth said good signals were received from the capsule for about 12 minutes after launching. Had all gone right, the capsule would have covered the intended 2,000 miles in 20 minutes. Gilruth said that there is still a good possibility that some valuable data will be obtained from the capsule even though it fell short. the one-ton capsule to a height of The shot—the first of its kind —was a vital test of many devices that will he used on the manned Project Mercury capsule. A manned capsule is expected to be fired into orbit some time in 1961. The launching was watched ! from the blockhouse here by one | of the seven Mercury astronauts -- Navy Lt. Cmdr. Alan B. Shepard Jr., 35, of East Derry, N.H. One of the seven will be the first American fired into space. Held in City Jail- Gangstad Bound Over in Shooting; Shack Burns Harry Gangstad. lit).

Total Loss The one-room structure, which appeared to have been converted into a house from an old steel- sided truck body, according to Harold II. Grundmeier. fire chief, was blazing when the fire department arrived shortly before midnight. The shack was locked and the sides were torn off by firemen to bring the blaze under control. "It can be described as a total loss." Clnel Grundmeier said. Gangstad is alleged to have quarreled with youths he claimed were throwing rocks at his shack, police said. He appeared betore an insanity commission here Tuesday afternoon, but the insanity charges were dismissed, the county attorney said. avr. , i. .•«.*«i8 **b*«.: : .... 4 Cars in Spectacular Crash— A chain reaction collision involving lour cars, three of which are shown above, occurred about one and one-half miles east of here on Highway 30 at 2:20 p.m. Tuesday.
