WASHINGTON (AP)-The unem-
ployment rate rose sharply from 5.7 per
cent to 6.2 per cent last month, but
nevertheless the economy is not

ministration said yesterday.

UNEMPLOYMENT in June had
dropped from May's 6.1 per cent to 5.7
per cent of the work force.
Government economists said the
reported decline in June may only have
been a statistical mistake and that the
unemployment rate has actually been
steady all year.
At the White House, presidential
spokesman Rex Granum said the new
figures are no cause for alarm. "We do
expect to make gradual further
progress this year and next in reducing

point out at the time.
"THE UNEMPLOYMENT rate has
changed very little since February,"
Granum said, adding that a total of
about 1.4 million jobs have been added
to the economy since then.
He said the employment rise is not a
sign that the economy is slackening,
noting that other economic indicators
continue to point upward.
Despite strong economic growth in
the spring, some economists have
feared that worsening inflation will
lead to a recession early next year.
AT A NEWS conference, Treasury
Secretary Michael Blumenthal said
"there are no indications of a recession
as far as we can see."
He said the unemployment situation
has remained strong and that "there
are more Americans at work earning
more money than ever before and there
is no reason to be concerned."
A Labor Department official, Janet
Norwood, said, "It would be premature
to infer a change in the underlying
strength of the labor market."
THE EMPLOYMENT figures are ad-
justed for seasonal variations, and June
and July are considered particularly
difficult months for the adjustmenta
because of the influx of students into the
labor market for the summer season.
