Inflation Fast Making 10c Paper Thing of Past NEW YORK (AP) - The 10-cent newspaper is fast going the way of the 10-cent cup of coffee, into history. The American Publishers Assn. says its annual survey of 1,745 daily newspapers this year showed that for the first time most of them now cost 15 cents. “This year, the number of 10-cent dailies has just about halved, 15-cent papers more than doubled and at least 50 newspapers now cost 20 cents for a daily edition,” a spokesman for the trade group says. I .ast year, 1,275 papers cost IO cents, 425 cost 15 cents and four newspapers cost 20 cents a copy. The remainder charged other amounts. Publishers say rising costs, especially for newsprint, have forced the increases. Since last December, newsprint prices have climbed $50 a ton to $235. And publishers have been told by major suppliers to expect another $25 increase Jan. 1. For West Coast newspapers, Crown Zellerbach has announced a rise to $285 a ton. As for Sunday newspapers, the AN PA reported that the majority now cost 35 cents, as opposed to 15 to 25 cents a year ago. Last Sunday, the Boston Globe raised its price to what the ANPA believes is the highest in the nation — 75 cents, from 50 cents. During this month, the Denver Post went from 35 to 50 cents a copy Sundays and the Post Tribune in Gary, Ind., from 30 to 35 cents. Virgil Partch Aff er Years Prison / Gets Parole I WARNED you he had a steel trap mind ’ Planning / Zoning Regulations Voted MARQUETTE—The Marquette city council has formally adopted planning and zoning ordinances and subdivision regulations. The action, taken at the December meeting, culminates many years of work on the project by planning and zoning committee members and city officials. Councilmen Roger Hendrickson, Jim Mason and Dick Hinkel voted for the ordinances, while Ralph Pirc voted against and Ed Hamann abstained. The ordinance provides that persons will no longer be able to build homes on 25-foot lots. The new regulations for building are* based on total square feet available, rather than on lot width. Building also can not take place adjacent to 25-foot lot boundaries, according to the ordinance. Residents will now be required to contact the city council to ascertain their plans conform to regulations before beginning construction. The city itself now has guidelines for water pipe, and sewer installation and street building to insure future installations will proceed according to some plan. School Concert MT VERNON — The Mt.

Williamsburg Approves Street Parking Ordinance Marines Awarded Valor Medals for Action as POWs EL TORO. Calif. (URI) -Four marine corps pilots have been decorated for bravery as prisoners of war. General Robert Cushman, marine corps commandant, presented the medals, which were recommended by a joint services committee of former prisoners of the North Vietnamese.

James Walsh, Laguna Beach, (alif., the Bronze Star WILLIAMSBURG - The Williamsburg city council has given final approval to a new “one-side-of-the-street” parking ordinance. The ordinance basically provides for no parking signs to be posted on various streets in town and that parking in violation of those signs will be a misdemeanor punishable by a fine in magistrate court. The council had originally wanted to prohibit parking on the east and north sides of the street. Many signs have been posted in that way, and city superintendent Richard E. Walsenburg says compliance has been gratifying. Past Streets However, the ordinance as written provides that the city can post the streets in any way it wants. The council suggested that some streets would lend themselves to being posted differently so that cars won t have to try to go up hill on an icy street from the way they are parked. The purpose of the ordinance is to assure access to the stnets by snowplowing, other street equiment and other emergency vehicles such as fire trucks and ambulances. There is some disagreement on the council, however, about how extensively the streets should be posted for no parking Councilman Harold Bezoni said he would not be for the ordinance if it means blanket, city wide posting ('tonically ( lagged Counc ilman Robert M., Murphy said, “I’m hoping to post all streets ” Murphy, a prime mover behind the ordinance, said he knows of several streets in town that are chronically clogged with cars parked on both sides and are almost impossible to drive through on icy days. The council discussed the problem of snow removal on the downtown streets, and decided to work later on a “snow ordinance” that would prohibit parking on the square during and immediately after a snowstorm. The new ordinance approved Monday provides for towing away cars that aren’t moved within 24 hours.
