NEW YORK TIMES BILL Wholesale Price-Rise Rate Slows Gazette Leased Wires WASHINGTON — Wholesale prices last month rose 1.2 percent, legs than half the October increase, the government reported Thursday. There were indications the pace of inflation was subsiding. The 1.2 percent rise translates into an annual rate of 14.4 percent. Although the November in crease was high by normal standards, the labor department said price increases over the! month were lese, widespread than in preceding months. Industrial Goods And, while agricultural prices! continued to increase sharply at the wholesale level, prices of industrial commodities — regarded by economists as a truer1 measure of inflation — rose at! the slowest rate in 13 months. Wholesale prices of industrial goods rose 0.9 percent last month, slightly less than in September and October and the smallest rise since October 1973 when they rose 0.8 percent. Over-all wholesale prices have risen 23.5 percent in the past 12 months., the biggest year-to-year increase since 1947, but the rate of increase has slowed in recent months. The 1.2 percent rise in wholesale prices last month, on a seasonally adjusted basis, compared with October’s increase of 2 5 percent and a rise of 0.1 percent in September. Unadjusted, prices rose I percent last month. Trends in wholesale prices usually show up at the consumer level eventually.
