VOLUME 92 - NUM BKH 309 LO it Ant nptfb CITY FINAL 15 CENTS CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 1974 ASSOCIATED FUESS, UPI, NEW YORK TIMES WASHINGTON (AF) — Sharply higher prices for food and 1975 cars contributed to a 2.3 j percent surge in wholesale pric-! es in October, the labor department reported Thursday. Over-all, wholesale prices last month were 22.6 percent higher: than a year earlier, the biggest 12-month increase since a 28.51 percent rise in the year ending! in June, 1947. The October increase ranged across virtually the entire economy. The 2.3 percent rise was on a seasonally adjuster! basis, meaning seasonal variations were taken into consideration. On a seasonally unadjusted basis the increase was 1.7 percent. There had been virtually no change in September on either basis. Consumer foods increased 4 percent in October, farm products were up 2.6 percent, processed foods and feeds rose 3.2 percent and industrial prices climbed l l percent. The biggest factor in the latter increase was a 6.4 percent rise in motor vehicle prices. All the increase in 1975'auto prices had their impact on the October index, since that was considered the starting month for wholesale auto sales for 1975 models. The October index stood at 170 M ortgage-Financing (J.N. Speech Action Taken by Ford e™.
