(Continued from Page 1)
pendents edged up one-tenth of
a per cent, the first increase in
three months. However, pur-
chasing power was still 5.2 per
cent below a year ago.
THIS PROMPTED AFL - CIO
President George Meany to de-
clare that American workers,
instead of moving forward, are
being pushed backward. "Their
living standards, and those of
the elderly and the poor are
eroding at an intolerable pace,"
he said in a statement.
The government said food
prices rose 1.9 per cent in Sep-
tember, the sharpest increase
since February. Nonfood com-
modities increased 1 per cent,
the smallest rise in nine months
but still a substantial jump.
The cost of services, including
rents, utilities a n d medical
fees, rose 1.1 per cent, the
same as in July and August.
Grocery prices, which usual-
ly decline in September, were
up 1.5 per cent last month with
everything but fruits and vege-
tables increasing in cost. Dairy
products, which had been de-
clining, posted their first in-
crease in four months.
Automobile prices, which us-
ually decline at the end of the
model year, increased slightly
last month. Clothing prices
were up sharply as were prices
for houses, furnishings, house-
hold supplies and alcoholic bev-
erages.
Gasoline prices declined for
the second consecutive month
with the U. S. average for reg-
ular grade dropping to 55 cents
per gallon and premium down I
to 58.7 cents per gallon, the
government said.

retained a lawyer on April 8,
he had a telephone conversation
with Haldeman, who was with
the president at the western '
White House in San Clemente
at the time.
"After I told him of my
plans," Dean told the jury,
"Haldeman said, 'John, you
ought to think about it before
you do it because once the'
toothpaste is out of the tube,
it's awfully hard to get it back
in.
THEN, JOHN WILSON, the 73-a
year-old attorney defending
Haldeman, began cross-examin-
ing Dean, the only government
witness so far.
He delved into the agreement
under which the former White
House counsel was allowed to'

testimony
plead guilty to a single count
of obstructing justice, and into
White House documents Dean
turned over to government at-
torneys. He also questioned
Dean about records the former
White House counsel used to
recall the precise date on which
conversations occurred.
"The principal documents I
relied on were newspaper
clippings," Dean said. He said
the clippings refreshed his
memory on the dates of certain
events.
