WASHINGTON (Renter) Consumer prices in the United I States remained unchanged last month after allowing for seasonal variations the first month in which they had not risen since November, the labor department reported today. The actual unadjusted con- sumer price level rose 0.2 per cent in March, considerably slower than the 0.5-per-cent ad- vance for the previous month. The main reason for the im- provement was a significant slowdown in food prices at the retail level to 0.2 per cent from February's 1.7 per cent season- ally-adjusted rise. Nevertheless, consumer prices for eggs. beef, vcvil and restaurant meals continued to rise strongly in the month, but these increases were mod- crated by lower vegetable and i pork prices.
