Consumer a loser in booze setup by Wayne Slater Topeka a the nine families who dominate the Kansas wholesale liquor Industry buy their Stock from outside suppliers at a Cost that is the lowest in the nation but by the time the bottles get to the retail shelf the Price is anything but Cut rate. Liquor Industry spokesmen contend that Kansas prices Are comparable to those elsewhere. Nevertheless it is possible to travel to stores in adjacent states and find prices cheaper than those in Kansas sometimes substantially cheaper. A Survey of five randomly selected revealed generally Oklahoma brands prices lower and of liquor last week in Missouri in one of two stores checked in Nebraska. In addition stores in Kansas City mo., advertised brands at prices As much As $1 a quart cheaper usually a loss leaders a sold at below Cost. There Are no a loss Leader sales in Kansas. They Are prohibited by Law and that is one reason Kansas liquor prices Are higher than those in other states. Another reason is that state Law prohibits the Sale of wine or spirits in grocery and drug stores and conversely the Sale of anything other than liquor in the liquor stores themselves. In addition Only Kansas of sister states in the Region protect both the wholesaler and retailer with fixed markups and guaranteed minimum retail prices. The wholesale markup on spirits is currently 15.5 per it is a system which has its share of critics. A i done to like Price fixing in the first place a gov Robert Bennett said Friday in an interview noting that the minimum Price granted by the alcohol beverage control Board of review traditionally cent and for retailers 28.5 per has become the set ceiling Price cent. For liqueurs and wines the As Well markups Are higher. It is a state regulated system which permits private entrepreneurs but discourages vigorous open Competition. It is a system which builds into it a certain level of costly inefficiency As a Trade off for stability. A if the state does not own it. As in a monopoly situation then we need some controls built in to see that liquor in t sold at Cut rate prices by operators who entice or i Veigle easterners into their stores. But on the other hand i think it should be recognized that the current Law. Which was to promote tem Perance should not be allowed to become an excuse for Large and substantial profits for those who operate under it a Bennett noted that when the Law was passed by the 1949 legislature permitting the Sale of liquor in Kansas the dominant philosophy was one of moderation liquor was to to made available but at a Cost and in a manner than did not encourage its use in the 28 years which have passed since passage liquor distributors.

But the recent Pace of inflation is causing speculation that it could be worse than that before the year is Over.

President Carter told a news conference thursday that his a main concern at this Point on the economic scene is the rate of and the Pace of inflation clearly is behind moves by the Money managing Federal Reserve Board to tighten growth of the Money Supply to make Loans More expensive. On Friday several major Banks raised their prime lending rate for Loans from 6v2 to 6 % per cent the second increase in a week. Since higher interest rates can discourage economic growth the Stock Market responded by pushing the Dow Jones Industrial average for stocks below 900, to 898, for the first time since Jan. 7,1976. Although Carter has previously said inflation and unemployment could be battled simultaneously his latest statement appeared to move mass killings him a big step closer to the Divi duals a Washington a the Federal government s Indian housing program a has been a Trail of broken consumer advocate Ralph Nader a housing research group said saturday.
