WASHINGTON The admin istration still is fretting about the danger of higher prices but the belief is growing that infla tion has been licked Top government economists now are quietly confident that there will be only a slight rise in prices during the next year They flatly predict that consum ers will not be hit by the kind of accelerating price increases that mark an inflationary spiral By next summer you will be able to say that prices have changed hardly at all for two a government expert says He recalls that consumer prices have gone up only a little more than onehalf of one per cent during the past 12 months HOLDING THE PRICE lino for two years will badly jolt speculators who have been buy ing stocks real estate and other equities to hedge against infla tion The buying power of the dollar wont be dropping and stock and land prices wont be soaring the way the speculators had hoped The steel strike is the critical unknown in the government forecasts If the companies grant an inflationary wage set tlement that forces a steel price boost then the predictions will be replaced by a new set that will read Danger Higher prices v A steel price increase will touch off a wave of inflationary excitement that will spark price markups throughout the coun try But the administration econ omists are betting that there will be a noninflationary wage settlement in steel They expect the steel workers to win a small increase but they believe it will be so small that the companies will hold prices are THE ECONOMISTS attach two other important conditions to their forecasts One is that President Eisenhower will con tinue to fight a successful battle for a balanced budget The sec ond is that the Federal Reserve System will continue to keep a tight rein on credit Both seem certain to be achieved One feature of the price sta bility outlook isnt quite as solid as the economists would like it to be They expect living costs to be relatively stable only be cause they believe that higher prices for services and some in dustrial goods will be offset by a drop in food The ex perts wish that all prices were going to hold steady but they dont think it will happen that way There is a comforting unani mity of views among the gov ernment experts Most think prices will edge up about one per cent and theyre convinced that two per cent is the outside limit THE PRICE expectations of the federal government econo mists mesh with simultaneous forecasts of a brisk rise in bus iness activity after the steel strike is settled They predict that the economy will grow at more than a normal pace but they dont look for the kind of superheated boom that would Camp David Talks AP Photofai END OF THE LINE The body of underworld leader Anthony Carfano companion Janice Drake

like what they have found Some of the main inflationary forces that caused trouble in 1955 are conspicuously absent now Overseas demands for Ameri can goods are smaller A 1955 automobile boom does not seem to be in the cards Neither does a repetition of the huge 195657 business capital goods boom Foreign goods are flowing in to the American market in large volume and the competition is helping to keep United States prices under pressure Credit is less freely available than it was in 1955 The biggest difference of all it psychological The country took a lackadaisical attitude to ward inflation in 1955 but there now is a widespread popular conviction that the price line must be held had a heavy rain along with the wind Mason City received another halfinch of rain Saturday morn ing which
