Inflation Fast Making 1 Oc Paper Thing of Past NEW YORK (AP) The 10-cent newspaper is fast going the way of the 10-ccnt cup of coffee, into history. The American Publishers Assn. says its annual survey of daily newspapers this year showed that for the first lime most of them now cost 15 cents. "This year, the number of Id-cent dailies has just about halved, 15-ccnt papers more than doubled and at least 50 newspapers now cost 20 cents for a daily a spokes- man for the trade group says. Last year, papers cost 10 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 a ton to And publish- ers have been told by major suppliers to expect another increase Jan. 1. For West Coast newspapers, Crown Zcllcrbach has announced a rise to a ton. As for Sunday newspapers, the ANPA reported that the majority now cost 35 cents, as opposed to 15 lo 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. The Cedar Rapids Gazelle: Sal..

Planning, Zoning Regulations Voted MARQUETTE-Tho Mar- quette city council has formal- ly adopted planning and zon- ing ordinances and subdivi- sion regulations. The action, taken at the December meeting, culmi- nates many years of work on the project by planning and zoning committee members and city officials. Councilmen Roger Hen- drickson, Jim Mason and Dick Hinkel voted for the ordi- nances, while Ralph Pirc vot- ed 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 build- ing are based on total square feet available, rather than on lot width. Building also can not take place adjacant to 25-foot lot boundaries, according to the ordinance. Residents will now be re- quired 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 In- stallations will proceed ac- cording to some plan. School Concert MT. VERNON The Ml.

Williamsburg Approves Sheet Parking Ordinance Marines Awarded Valor Medals for Action as POWs EL TORO, Calif. (UPI) 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 Viet- namese. The awards have been delayed because congress had to authorize an exemption on (ho stutute of limitations for such decorations, a marine spokesman said. LI. Col.

James Walsh, Lagunn Beach, Calif., the Star WUJJAMSBURG The Williamsburg city council has given final approval to a new "one-side-of-the-street" park- ing ordinance. The ordinance basically provides for no parking signs to be posted on various streets in town and that parking in vi- olation 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. Wardenburg says compliance has been gratifying. Pest Streets However, the ordinance as written provides that the city can post the streets in any way it wants. The council sug- gested that some streets would lend themselves to being posted differently so that cars won't have lo try to go up hill on an icy street from the way they are parked. The purpose of the ordi- nance is to assure access to the streets by snowplowlng, other street oquimenl and other emergency vehicles such as fire trucks and ambul- ances. There is some disagreement on the council, however, about how extensively the streets should be posted for no park- ing Councilman Harold Bezonl said he would not be for the ordinance if it means blanket, ciLy-wide posting. Chmlcally Clogged Councilman 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 a snowstorm. The new ordinance ap- proved Monday provides for towing away ears that aren't .moved within 24 hours. This is down from 48 hours previous- ly.

MICHIGAN CITY, Johnson VanOyke (irigsby has spent 08 of his 89 years behind bars of the Indiana State prison, but he still says he wants out "so bad I'm going to break out of here someday." But he won't have to now, says acting Warden Jack Duckworth. Grigsby, who was sentenced to life for second-degree murder, is scheduled for discharge on parole "within two or three months" and Duckworth says arrangements are being made for him to stay at a nursing home. When he was informed this week of his pending parole, Grigsby scoffed, "Oh, ball. I've been hearing that lor 50 years." He arrived at the prison on Aug. 5, 1908. Lifers United for Penal Programs, an inrnute program which claims credit for Grigsby's parole, has asked the Guinness Book of Records lo declare his a record prison term. Guinness lists Richard Honeck, sentenced in 1899 and freed in 1963, as having the record, 64 years. Grlgsby was a veteran In- mate when gang leader John Dilllnger was sent to the In- diana prison briefly In the 1930s. Grigsby recalls Dilllnger as the "smartest man I ever knew and the smartest man ever put In prison." He said an escape, which never materialized, and promised Grigsby would be included. There was a condition that lie Would never try to contact Dilllnger once they made good their flight, Grigsby said. Grigsby, who says he was born in March, 1885, in Shelby county, Ky., was convicted at Anderson, Ind., of killing a man in a knife fight in a saloon. Grigsby recalls only thai he had an argument dur- ing a poker game and that he slabbed a "bad man" who cursed him and claimed he cheated. Rapes Cousin's Wife as Revenge ST. ETIENNE, France (UPI) An immigrant from the Ivory Coasl who suspected his French wife of sleeping with his cousin was arrested on a charge of raping the cousin's wife in an act of revenge. Police said Ossez Yao, 22, was accused of raping his cousin's wife, a French woman, after luring her to his apartment on the pretext of showing her a way to make 100-franc notes reproduce themselves. He told her he had learned the trick from a witchdoctor in his African village. FOR YOUR CHRISTMA CONVENIENCE as LINDALE PLAZA SUNDAYS ISNOONKY KKNU (UPI) Authorities have found more than 600 bags, tnost of them full of silver coins, hidden in the basement of a mansion belonging to the estate of the late eccentric millionaire La Verc Redfield.
