The consumer price index remained at the July level of 107.1 per cent of the 1957-59 base period A spokesman for the Bureau o: Labor Statistics said that present indications are that the September index reading will show about the same level. In the May-July period of this year, the index rose by about : per cent. The August standing o 107.1 means that it cost $10.71 to buy the same consumer item items that could have been bought in the 1957-59 period foi $10. In August, lower food prices particularly for fresh fruits and vegetables, offset higher trans portation and recreation costs tc keep the price index constant. However, the index was 1.5 pei cent higher than in August, 1962 mainly because of higher price levels for food and housing. The bureau also reported tha the net spendable earnings of the average factory worker — his take-home pay after taxes — de cline in August by 67 cents a week. The drop in the average take home pay reflected seasonal de clines in employment in high wage industries. Hospital Women To Hear Talk On Micro-Film Charles A.
