It is not a brand new idea, but a conviction seems to be growing in some sectors that the businessman has held too aloof too long, mistakingly feeling he hasn't the time or, as a Ford Motor Co. executive put it, that "politics are sordid and a little dirty." Some prominent industrialists are also wondering aloud if past aloofness on their part isn't a basic cause of what they believe is a misunderstanding of the busi- community in Wash- Negroes Suspend Marches ALBANY, Ga.. (AP) Negro leaders weighed today a possible suspension of mass racial demon- strations after violence climaxed a protest march in this uneasy southwest Georgia city. The ripple of violence, in which two officers received minor hurt, came Tuesday night just a few hours after a federal judge's ac- tion cleared the way for Negroes to renew their anti-segregation activities. Dr. Martin .Luther King Jr. of Atlanta, integration leader who preaches nonviolence and passive resistance in the Negro's fight for equal rights, termed the incident regrettable. He said he would halt demonstrations temporarily if he feels Albany Negroes cannot stick to a strict nonviolent campaign. The trouble developed when about 170 officers moved into the Negro' section to disperse about Negroes in the vicinity of a bus terminal. State trooper Claude Hill of Tif- ton was struck by a rock, bruis- ing his face and knocking out a Bottles and rocks rained onto the pavement as two lines of officers broke up milling crowds of Negroes. The missiles flew after 39 Ne- groes and one white man marched from a church to the downtown area and were jailed for parading without a permit. Shortly before the march began, Negroes filed federal court action to desegregate all public facilities and to prevent police interference ness community in ington. 'Thomas R.

Even as the negotiators were meeting, a new strike threat was posed by the Transport Workers Union against Pan American and Northeast Airlines. The Pan. American settlement 'had no direct relation to the engi- neers' 33-day-old- strike against Eastern Air Lines. But since the terms were identical- to those re- jected for the second time Tues- day by Eastern after acceptance by the union, it'-appeared the agreement might have a'bearing on the Eastern strike. Goldberg said Eastern had con- sidered his proposals acceptable earlier. A Labor Department spokesman said no new meetings were planned in. the.

Eastern resumed limited opera- tions Monday and.continued Tues- day with two flights .each way between Miami- and New York. Both Pan American and East- ern'were struck on June-23.

The Labor Department an- nounced today its consumer price index rose one-tenth of one per cent -to 105.3 per cent of the 1957-59 base period. This means that the value of the dollar in retail mar- kets is about 5 cents less than in the comparative period. The June living cost rise was largely attributed to a 9 per cent increase in prices of fresh fruits but this was largely seasonal. Restaurant meals rose one-half of one per cent in the month. The over-all food index is now at a record high with grocery store prices up by one per cent from last year and restaurant meals 2.8 per cent above a year ago. The over-all living cost index has increased eight-tenths of one per.cent since the start of thi; year, and has set new records in four of the six months. Compared with a year ago living costs are 1.2 per cent higher. Robert J. Myers, the Labor De- partment price expert, said July price trends are cloudy but that he thought a further small living cost increase was likely. Commenting on the continuing rise in prices of restaurant meals, Myers said labor costs of restau- rant operators undoubtedly have seen going up somewhat but that Jie Labor Department had noticed that the largest away-from-hpme meal increases have been, in cities hat cater to the tourist 'trade. In that connection, Myers said restaurant meals went up 1.7 pes cent in New York City in June and 1.2 per cent in Washington. He said the demand factor apparently had something to do with higher restaurant meal- costs. The Labor Department also an- nounced that average earnings, of factory workers rose to a new high in June. The after-tax earn- ings of the worker heading a fam- ily of four averaged weekly, up from in'May. Myers said the earnings rise was one of the smallest May-June increases in many years and was largely due to-- somewhat longer working hours. Cost of services continued their gradual rise in June. Price in- creases also were reported for used cars, women's and girls clothes and household Prices of gasoline, coal and petro- leum fuels, cosmetics and house- iold durables were a bit lower. es are subject under union con- tracts to revision on the basis of the neWindex.

Two-cent increases also are due some cartage employes in California. About San Fran- cisco truck drivers are due a half- cent hourly raise. Medical care costs rose three- teaths of one per cent in June. Myers reported that in the past year hospital room rates have in- creased 6 per cent, hospital insur- ance costs 4.8 per cent, profession- al .medical services, :3.2 per cent, and surgical insurance- 0.1 The June living cost rise Costs of prescriptions and sring wage increases for approxi- drugs, however, have declined 1.3 mately workers whose waj- per cent in the past year. person died and seven others were hospitalized in two separate yet related accidents involving five cars Tuesday evening near Stonewall.
