' ;For the year as a whole, the E)eatli Takes Widow Of UA Teacher ;Mrs. Lois Z. Smith, widow of the late Dr. Chester H. Smith, died Sunday in Phoenix in a hospital. resident of Tucson from 1929 to 1965, Mrs. Smith had been living in North Congregational Church of the Beatitudes' retirement home in Phoenix. She was 68. Her husband was a teacher in the University of Arizona College of Law for 35 years. He died in 1964. ;Mrs. Smith was a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and the Presbyterian Church. She was born in St. James, Minn., and had an A.B. degree from the University of South Dakota and an MA. degree in child welfare and speech from the University of Iowa was a member of Delta Zeta Sorority and served the UA chapter as alumnae adviser.

Smith, Westminster, Calif., and Dr. Brit Owen Smith, Lancaster, Calif. There are 13 grandchildren. Funeral arrangements are pending in Phoenix. department forecasts an average jump of about 1.7 per cent in food costs above last year. Primarily because of the projected price hikes, consumers are expected to spend about $94.6 billion for food this year compared to ?91 billion in 1966. The forecast for higher retail food prices comes at a time when prices paid farmers for food they produce are down nearly 10 per cent from last summer and seven per cent below last year's average. Some of the expected increase in retail food prices would reflect anticipated upturns in some farm prices, particularly for meat animals. Somewhal reduced marketings of cattle and hogs are expected as a consequence of some contraction in livestock production under the pressure of prices unsatisfac tory to farmers. The department said curren indications point to an increase in both production and marketing of farm comrnoditieSjlhii year, with the upturn cphc'en- trated in crops. Because consumer incomes went up while food prices easec off slightly, the department saic consumers spent an average o 17.5 per cent of their income for food during the first quarter o the year, the lowest of record Last year, the percentage was 18.5. Items expected to rise later in the year besides meats includ eggs, poultry and possibly some dairy products. Items expecte to continue near present level include citrus products, canne fruits, processed vegetable; potatoes and cereal products. - ' Hx^-- jvwff*,«K -,:,; -*,(t? 5 t -,.;-; -. ,* ' '/v VV"' Beauty Protection With her hair blown down into her face, Beverly Lacek, Miss Illinois, gets suntan lotion applied to her back by Jacqueline Linder, Miss North Dakota, as the girls get ready for picture day at Miami Beach.

The council's action was to direct the commission to have a hearing on the racquet club request next month. "This has been a concern to me," said Councilman Kirk Storch. "Since it takes so long, I've often wondered what would happen if we had a chance to 2 Business Firms Looted Of $1,410 Burglaries of two business firms in which loot valued at $1,410 was stolen were under investigation today by police.

Storch made the motion for the council to initiate the rezoning "as a test case."
