Large Portion Of Supermarket Dollar Goes For Inedibles NEW YORK (AP) - A recent newspaper cartoon showed a woman shopper, cart loaded tvilh groceries, rushing up and down the .aisles of a supermarket. Over the loudspeaker came on announcement: "At :he sound of the gong, all prices will go up 10 per cent." Things aren't quite that bad, but to many shoppers the cartoon is b a s e d ' o n an"uncomfortable amount of truth. Prices seem to he going up faster than p ou can count. The government las estimated that by the end of this year, food prices will be 15 to 17 per cent higher than last year. . '. Agriculture Secretary Earl L. Blitz has predicted an 8 to 10 per cent increase for next year, but officials say even that may have · to be revised upward .because of· frosts-1in -the Midwest. Americans spend 'billions' of dollars in supermarkets -each year. Where Is the money going? Twenty per cent of it isn't even being spent on food. The Super Market Institute, an in- DENNIS THE MENACE By Ketcham ustry research group, says nly 8 per cent of the typical upermarket bill goes for food, he rest is. spent on things like a p e r goods, magazines, ecords, toys and all the other extras." Supermarkets frequently dis- lay these profitable items 'here the customer is most kely to see them and con- umer advisers warn shoppers o he wary of buying things hey don't need. According to the Super Maret Institute, the average cus- omcr transaction at a so-called ombinatton supermarket -- a tore devoting 25 per cent or more of its s p a c.e to general nerchandise--involves an ex- enditure of $8.68 on food and 1.65 on nonfood items, The institute also came up ith some interesting regional idelights, although it provided o explanation. Customers in lie Northeast and Midwest pcnd almost twice as much on )od per transaction as those in ie South. But the Southerners pend a higher percentage ol he grocery bill on general icrchandise. No matter what type of item s involved, you're also paying or. the package. The Agricul- ure Department has estimated bat the value of packaging for arm - produced foods increased ly over 8 per cent last year aid now is more than $10 bil- ion. Metal cans went up 12 pel ent last year, the departmenl aid; glass containers were up more than 9 per cent; paper iroducts jumped 8 per cent; lastics increased 6 per cent; and wood containers went up 1 per cent. Even the paper bag the gr eries are packed in is costing more. The Agriculture Depar rient reported, for example, hat one national supermarkel in was. paying two cents for every large grocery bag--up ab6ut 14 per cent over 1972. The bag held about $7 to $8 vorth of groceries, the department said. ' SORRY Oew£Y...$ATuww I Qtt N£Et)S m TO A PAL TO HIM.' WOMAN'S WORLD A Convenient Sewing and Shopping Guide for Today 1 !

Tax Increase On Venezuelan Oil Is Retroactive To Jan. 1 Northwest Arkansoi TIMES, Saturday, Oct. 5, 1974 · Tl fAYtTTIVILLr, ARKANSAS NEW YORK (AP) -- A tax ncreasc In Venezuela this past vcek has raised the prospect of still more oil problems for the United States this winter. Venezuela, the biggest sup- ilicr of forein oil to this coun- ry, announced a 3.5 per cent like in the taxes it levies on that oil. And it made the increase retroactive lo the first of the year. The increase works out to a -otal of $300 million in new Jack taxes so far this year and the figure Is expected to be about S400 million by'the end of the year.. Venezuela said the tax was set up so that it would cut into allegedly excessive profits by oil companies in a way that would not Involve passing the costs along to consumers. But the oil companies quickly countered that they couldn't absorb the new expense alone. Companies affected by the move included Gulf Oil Corp.; Texaco, Inc.; Royal Dutch-Shell Group; Mobil and Creole Petroleum Corp., 05 per cent owned bv Exxon Corn, and the biggest Venezuelan oil company. Exon said the Venezuelan move would cut its profits for the first half of 1974 by $75 million to $1.48 billion. Kuwait changed i t s royalty rate on oil this past week and that move, along with others was expected to boost the price of an average barrel of oil to $9.44 In the fourth quarter, up 75 cents from the third-quarter price. The increases In- foreign crude oil prices camft during a veek when some U.S. refiners vere anouncing cuts' in the prices of some of their predicts. Mobil cut gasoline prices two cents a gallon, crediting lower crude oil prices in September, "t also dropped the price of jot uel and assorted other fuel oils, Standard Oil of Ohio cut its gasoline price a penny a gallon, Skclly Oil Co. anounced a cut of 2,5 cents and a subsidiary of Standard Oil of Indiana cut prices by three cents a gallon.

Iran has ordered 80 of Grumman's F-I4 jet fighters. Bank Melli Iran provided $75 million of the financial aid package, the rest coming from nine American 'banks. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation this' past week rejected a proposal of Franklin National Bank of New York that it become an inde ncndent regional bank on Long Island. Franklin, once the nation's 20th largest commercial bank lost about $8(1 million in the first half of 1974 through prob Jems in foreign exchange deal ings and other areas. The FDIC rejection seemed to make more likely the pros pect of Franklin's assets being sold to other banks In an in solvency action. · NO MORTICIAN^ NO ADD-ONS' 1 NO 1MB AIM INC*' Competitive Funerals Low rate cremations are shown as they were advertised In a Miami newspaper.

(AP Wirephoto) Vinyl Chloride Spray Paint Refunds Okayed WASHINGTON (AP) -- Consumers can begin demanding ull refunds Monday for mil- ions of new or used cans of spray paint containing the cancer - causing ch'emical vinyl chloride. But since the chemical is not listed on labels; it may be almost Impossible to determine whether the aerosol paint you own contains vinyl chloride. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said today t has denied requests by several paint manufacturers to revoke the federal refund order. Retailers will be required tc post lists in their stores of vinyl chloride - containing paints they liave sold during past years. The industry had warned the commission that it produced tens of millions of cans of ipray paint with vinyl chloride, and that repurchase at $1.50 to $2.00 each would put many companies out of business. They also said the 24 liver cancer deaths attributed to vinyl chloride occurred among workers who had been exposed to heavy concentrations for years. They said there was no proof that limited exposure from use of aerosol paints would cause cancer. NOT BACKED "UP Rust-Oleum Corp., which discontinued use of vinyl chloride in April 1972, said it was not arguing that it is "more important to save a business than to save a life," but it,felt the repurchase order was not backed up by proof of a health hazard. The firm said aerosol paints and varnishes generally are used outdoors or in well-ventilated areas and any potential risk is greatly minimized. Plasti-Kote Co., a division of Consolidated B'oods Inc., said it stopped using vinyl chloride in some products in December 1971 and altogether in June 1973. The company said it makes 20 million cans of spray paint a year, under its own five brands and 100 private labels. ..Thirty million cans have been produced without vinyl chloride, but they are not readily distinguished from the others, Plasti-Kote said. Repurchase would create an "administrative morass" because of the "monumentally large numbers" of aerosol cans being returned, the company said. "Consumer confusion will result in the needless expense of time and money," the firm added.
