The labor department said wholesale prices increased .7 percent seasonally adjusted and .5 percent unadjusted. The increase was still high by normal standards but considerably below increases recorded since November. April’s, rise compared with adjusted increases of 1.3 percent in March, 1.2 percent in February and 3.1 percent in January. Despite the slowdown in farm and food prices, there was no hint that the inflationary surge; was abating. Jump 2.3 Percent Industrial prices, regarded as one of the surest barometers of! inflation, jumped an adjusted 2.3 percent in April. In March industrial prices climbed 2.9 percent. The rise in industrial prices | reflected in part the dropping of price controls over various industries. Farm products, processed foods and feeds declined for the j second consecutive month, dropping an adjusted 3 percent and an unadjusted 3.7 percent. Wholesale prices have risen 18.8 percent over the past year. Changes in wholesale prices usually are reflected later at the retail level. April’s increase lifted the government’s wholesale pricing1 index to 155.3, meaning that it cost $155.30 to buy the same volume of wholesale goods that, $100 purchased in 1967. Over the last three months, wholesale prices have increased at an adjusted annual rate of 13 5 percent.

Mercy college took place Thursday, but the flight was a short one. The balloon was launched about 8 a.m., and landed a short time later at Kennedy high school. The ascension, which college officials believe to be the first in the history of the city, had been scheduled for Tuesday morning but was postponed because of weather conditions. Thursday was cloudy, but it was dry and the wind was light. The balloon belongs to and was flown by John Kenney of Iowa City, a Mt. Mercy junior.

I personally swear because there are so many things that bug mc That’s why everyone swears, and almost everyone does.” Far I'rom being shocked at the language in the transcripts, Aman finds it lacking iii the very words he's interested in. “Most of the time they are omitted, although you can s o rn etimcs predict what should bt' there,” he said. “I ve been sort of trying to fill in what it can be “I wish I could get all the expletives That would be like winning a lottery or something.” Aman, 38, has plenty of experience in dealing with nondeleted expletives He has published several scholarly works on profanity patterns throughout the world and compiled dictionaries of cuss words to help explain the background and meaning of curses. “Swearing is a means of letting off steam, to keep from getting ulcers and from keeping frustrations bottled up inside," said Aman. “It should be used properly,” he cautioned, adding that most people don’t appreciate the finer points of cursing. He said the unsophisticated curser aims insults at a foe’s p h y s i c a I characteristics rather than gauging his cultural and educational background before using the verbal rapier. Only a low-brow swearer relies on ethnic slurs. Aman said. Americans art among the least refined cussers, largely because their profane vocabulary is 25 or fewer words, he said. Among his favorite curses are Yiddish’s “May all your teeth but one fall out so you can get a toothache,” the rhymed insults of the Turks and the singing exchanges between Eskimoes. “Tell me what swear words you use and I will tell you who son arc,” he said.
