(AP Wirephoto) Stein Sees End Of Price Surge, Though Increases Are Expected By STEPHEN H. MILLER NEW YORK (AP) -- The less nan certain prospects for an asing of price increases were nderlined this past week in an- ouncements by the government and two of the country's iggest corporations. The Labor Department said vholesale prices were up a harp 1.5 per cent in May, even Kough farm and food prices were down. Herbert Stein, chairman of resident Nixon's Coujicil of Economic Advisers, said he felt May was the end of the price urge touched off by the end of ederal controls, although more ncreases were probably slill ihead. Stein's prediction came one day after higher prices were announced by the leading com- anies in two of the country's most important industries -steel and cars. U.S. Steel, which announced i wide range of price increases ive weeks ago, s a i d it was 'aising charges an average of 8 X.T cent on a number of prod ucts. General Motors took action which makes remaining 1974 vehicles an average of $lls :nore expensive, but contender it hadn't really raised prices al ail.

General Motors said that ill uove wasn't a price increase ,ince it was merely making ilandard on many models what jad formerly been optional fea- ures, such as radial tires, elec- ronic ignitions and power leering. Thus, GM contended, uslomers were getting more or their money even if it did ake more money lo get a GM product. Mclals a n d machinery w e r e imong the factors, along with uels and chemicals, which accounted for three-quarters of he May increase in wholesale rices, the Labor Department ;aid. Over-all, wholesale prices vere up ISA per cent from a year earlier, with industrial irices up 20.1 per cent and arm products, processed foods and feeds up 8.1. The May figures pushed 'the government's wholesale price index lo 155.0, which meant it cost $155 to buy what $100 vould have bought in 1967. The Labor Dcpartmenl also reported, however, that while .he cost of living from April 1973 to April 1974 went up 13.3 :er cent, (he cost of alcoholic beverages in t h a t period went up only 6.7 per cenl. Whiskeys, they said, had gone up just 0.7 per cent. While many liquor dealers predicted an increase before long, one New York dealer said consumer resistance had driven Ihe price of French Bordeaux wines down 25 to 30 per cent.
