Prince Juan Carlos de Borbon, Spain's
acting chief of state yesterday until the

his illness to cause the country any up-
set," the sources said.
Franco was hospitalized Jtty 9 with
what doctors clled "a sunerfirial pleb-
itis attack." Phlebitis is ibilamation
of tveins, the disease that bothered Pres-
ident Nixon after his Middle last trip
last month. Medical reports halt indicat-
ed that Franco would be released from
the hospital in a few days.
JUAN CARIO'S first act as temporary
chief of state was to sign a joint U.S.-

Gov't reports
prices up again
during June
WASHINGTON (UPI) - Government
economists confirmed yesterday what
most everybody probably suspected:
Prices rose and real income fell again
last month.
The Labor Department said consumer
prices rose I per cent in June, largely
because costs of goods that normaly
decline in the summer continued to rise.
AND IT reported that annual real
average weekly earnings for rank and
file workers declined 3.8 per cent, despite
- higher average hourly earnings.
The decline was due partly to inflatio,
partly to a decrease in the average
number of hours worked.
Release of the figures followed a
report Thursday that ,the Gross National
Product continued a six-month down-
turn, the longest such slump in five
