IRS investigating
Rev. Moon's church?

Food price rise reported

ternal Revenue Service is in-
vestigating the tax-exemptions
of Rev. Sun Myung Moon's Uni-
fication Church, Rep. Peter Pey-
ser (R-N.Y.) said yesterday.
The congressman said that
high-level IRS officials, whom
he would not name, had told
him in a series of conversations
over the past several months
that the probe was being made
to determine whether the church
was entitled to continued tax
exemptions given to religious
AN INTERNAL Revenue Serv-
ice spokesman said that he
could neither confirm nor deny
that such a probe was under-
But he said the agency had
received letters spelling out al-
legations about the South Ko-
rean evangelist and his church,
which have been passed on to
different IRS offices "for appro-
priate action."
Peyser said in an interview
that several "obvious questions"

those focusing on the church's
political activities, fund-raising
and property acquisition.
THE CHURCH holds several
estates in New York State and
recently acquired two pieces of
valuable property in New York
These properties, which Pey-
ser said might be removed from
New York City real estate tax
rolls if the church's tax-exempt
status continues, are the New
Yorker Hotel, recently acquired
for approximately $5 million,
and the Columbia Club, near
Fifth Avenue, the congressman
"He obviously has a substan-
tial amount of money, running
into the millions and millions of
dollars," Peyser said. "Nobody
seems to have a very clear pic-
ture as to what the sources-are.
There are questions as to wheth-
er the sources qualify for a tax-
exempt organization."

could be a violation of the tax

By The Associated Press
Consumers hunting for bargains
at the grocery store during May
found slim pickings, as prices
took their steepest climb in well
over a year, an Associated
Press marketbasket s u r v e y
The AP drew up a random list
of 15 commonly purchased food
and nonfood items, checked the
price at one supermarket in
each of 13 cities on March 1,
1973 and has rechecked on or
about the start of each succeed-
ing month.
The latest survey showed the
greatest number of increases at
the meat counter. The price of
a pound of pork chops went up
at the checklist store in nine
cities, with increases generally
ranging between 10 and 30 per
cent. A pound of meat frank-
furters went up at the checklist
store in seven cities, with in-
creases in the 2 per cent range.
AMONG OTHER findings:
-The marketbasket total in-
creased at the checklist store in
every city, with an average rise
of 4.2 per cent. This was the
highest increase since Novem-
ber 1974 when, mainly because
of soring sugar prices, the
marketbasket total went up an
average of 5.6 per cent. The last
time the total went up at the
checklist store in every city was
in July 1974 when the average
increase was 4 per cent.
-Prices at the start of this
June were higher at the check-
list store in every city than they
were a year ago. The average
increase in the marketbasket
total over 12 months was 7.6
per cent.
-Price in c rea s es spread
across the supermarket aisles.

cent in each of the previous two
NO ATTEMPT was made to
weigh the AP survey results
according to population density
or in terms of what per cent of
a family's actual grocery out-
lay each item represents.
The day of the week on which
the check was made varied de-
pending on the month. Standard
brands and sizes were used
when available. If the requested
size and brand was not available
on March 1, 1973, a comparable
substitute was selected. Items
temporarily out of stock on one
of the survey dates being com-
pared were not included in the
over-all total.
The AP did not attempt to
compare actual prices from city
to city-to say, for example, that
cookies cost more in one area
than another. The only compar-
isons were made in terms of
percentages of increase or de-
crepse-saying a particular item
went up 10 per cent in one city
and 6 per cent in another.

Khmers were conquering their
