FOOD PRICES Food prices were reported up _,4 per cent in August following a decline of four-tenths of a per cent the previous month. The cost of services rose 1.1 per cent last month, about the same as in the three previous months. Commodities other than food -- regarded by most economists as a more sensitive barometer of inflation -- rose 1.5 per cent last month, the largest increase on record. The government said grocery prices were up 1.5 per cent in August, a month in which they usually decline. Higher prices for beef and eggs -- the first since February -- were much larer than usual, while prices of poultry and fresh fruits increased instead of declining seasonally. Nearly all other food items continued to rise, incuding cereal and bakery products, processed fruits and vegetables, sugar and sweets, nonalcoholic beverages and partially prepared foods.

Johnson, · 77, of A president said that since the merger in 1972, "the academic programs of UAM have been significantly strengthened." He said that, 'State financial support has increased substantially," and said that salary improvements were made possible, additional staff and faculty had been employed and "the quality of academic resources has been improved." Dr. Bishop also repeated a belief stated earlier that the various campuses of the system "should not try to emulate each other." He said, "There must be a specialization and a strong sense of identity on the various campuses..The relatively small population of the state and its limited financial resources cannot sustain wasteful duplication." ills Sees Tax Revision Bill Soon Despite Dispute rise in nonfood items was due mostly to higher clothing prices, which usually decline in August. Used car prices also rose but at a "considerably smaller" rale than in recent months whie the price of new cars increased slightly instead of declining as they usually do at the end of the model year. The report said gasoline prices declined eight-tenths of a per cent in August to a U.S. average of 55.4 cents per gallon for regular. The average price or premium was listed as down six-tenths of a per cent to 59.1 cents per gallon. More than a fourth of the increase in service costs was at- ributed to a rise in mortgage nterest rates. Medical care services rose 1.5 per cent last month and the costs of most other services from home repairs to utility rates, also increased sharply. Fayettevilte died Thursday in u local hospital.

Mills says he hopes it can reach final terms for a wide-ranging tax revision bill next week. The panel, trying to draft legislation for House action next month, seems settled on a multi-billion-dollar restructuring of the petroleum tax laws. It rejected new attempts Thursday .0 either wipe out of beef up its major oil tax changes. But for the second time this week, the committee reversed tself Thursday on what to do about the Treasury's proposal for curbs .on real estate tax shelters. Earlier this year the committee had decided to all but eliminate from its bill the real estate tax shelter limits along lines proposed by the Treasury although the- panel accepted parls pf the plan to curb tax shelters involving farms and movie production.

Charles McKinney, 47, 105 Rogers Circle Dr., will seek re-election to his Ward Three, Position Two seat. McKinney, who has served since'his election in 1962, will be opposed by Phyllis Markey. Randy K. Herlocker, 27, 1407 Buena Vista, will oppose Alderman Espen Walters in the bid for the Ward Four, Position Two post. Herlocker, a former Springdale High School band director, owns and manages the Outlet Store on Backus Ave. e proposed tax changes thus r would be doing to a select ·oup of high-income people, id with Mills, D-Ark., saying would be "necessary to do ore with sheltered areas than e have done so far"--the eom- littee reversed the earlier ae- on and decided to curb such :al estate tax shelters. It also stiffened a previously jproved section boosting, the luiimum tax on the rich and lose with various tax advan- ages. But, by 12-11 on Thursday, he committee went along with move by Rep. Joel T. Broyh- 1, R-Va., to switch the real es- ate tax shelter situation back where it had been before uesday's decision. Since some items, such as in- erest and taxes paid on a uilding during construction and exceeding related income, ad been part of an earlier fea- ure of the new minimum tax, was expected these also p ould return to that status. By 18-6, the committee reused to strike out the bill's reposed oil tax law restruclur- ng provisions, which include a jhaseout of the 222 per cent pet- oleum depletion allowance -- a eature of existing law which aves oilmen between $2 billion ind $3 billion a year in federal axes. The total estimated revenue Jain for the treasury through his phase-out is $10.5 billion rom 5974 through 1979. The committee accepted some modifications Involving he bill's proposed temporary new excise tax on windfall prof- ts of the oil industry--a levy slimated at $18.1 billion overall from 1975 through 1979. But linked to this would be a so-called plowback credit plan giving energy-seeking' oilmen a vay to escape paying much of this new levy, so the net total revenue gain from the new tax is figured at $2.1 billion for the five-year period. There also would be a limit on foreign tax credits and other oil tax changes providing a to:al revenue gain of $2,8 billion for 1974 through 1979, while some changes in a fee system for imported petroleum would yield a $1.3 billion revenue loss for this six-year span. 1967 base period.
