Nov. food..
prices up, -
highest in
five yearsx
By AP and Reuter
WASHINGTON - Led by sharply
higher prices for poultry and beef,
wholesale food prices increased by 2.6
per cent in November, the worst mon-
thly increase in five years and a clear
warning that consumers face higher s
grocery bills in weeks ahead.
Overall wholesale prices increased
1.3 per cent during the month and were
up at an annual rate of 12.8 per cent for
the year, the Labor Department said
THE INCREASE makes it virtually
certain that 1979 will be the worst year
for inflation at the wholesale level since
1974, when prices rose 18.3 per cent.
Wholesale prices increased 9.1 per cent
last year.
Energy prices rose by 2.5 per cent in
November, the smallest amount since AN IRANIAN RAISE

Announcement of the Vance trip
followed a meeting Wednesday ight in
which congressmen invited to a White
House dinner said President Carter
discussed U.S. efforts to isolate Iran in
the world community. Carter also was
said to have discussed the escalating
economic pressure on Iran.
U.S. OFFICIALS have suggested that
the administrtion has a number of
economic and diplomatic means to use
in the effort, to force Iran to free the 50
American hostages. The hostages have
been held since a militant Moslem mob
overran the U.S. Embassy in Tehran on
Nov. 4, demanding the deposed Shah
Mohammed Reza Pahlavi be returned
for trial.
Meanwhile, a high level U.S. State
and Treasury department mission met
with British and West German officials
yesterday and is due in Switzerland to
discuss the U.S. freeze of Iranian assets
and other moves aimed at pressuring
Iran to free its American hostages.
A U.S. source said the officials had
come to "explain the legalities" of the
freeze and other issues connected with
the Iranian crisis. But the State
Department in Washington said the aim

Hubbard criticized the city's parking

spent on increased police protection.
He also said the city needed more
housing and he pledged to push for the
construction of more rental housing

Paper Chase printing
beset by financial woes

Despite debts amounting to $70,000,
the Paper Chase copy service, located
on the ground floor of the Michigan
Union will not be going out of business,
according to owner Bob Gordon.
He said survival of the year-old
business hinges on a $2,700 grant from
the state Bureau of Rehabilitation.
Gordon said this grant would enable
him to put up the required 10 per cent
collateral needed for a $27,000 loan
from the U.S. Small Businessman's
"THIS MONEY will allow me to pay
off a portion of my debts, as well as to
buy and rent the necessary equipment

to keep my operation going," explained
He said he hopes to use the loan to
purchase three self-service copy
machines, rent one TCS/System Four

and 10 selectric typewriters and a word

first year of operation, Gordon said he
