DAY They call it cluster development, and they gay it will replace subdivision developments, m Provo, it's called Marrcrest and its under construction adjacent to the Riverside Country Club's golf course. I. Dale Despain, a planning enj concultant, yesterday said the it. cluster development, also called planned unit development, is "the wave of the future." He predicted that within 25 years, it will replace the subdivision form of development. If it does, it will save cities from spending a lot of tax money. The "new" form of development was explained to Provo City Commissioners yesterday at a luncheon hosted by Warner Murphy, Provo, who is developing Marrcrest. After the luncheon, the commissioners toured the new housing project. Similar Features Mr. Despain explained that the planned unit form of development is not exactly new. It has been done in Europe for about 15 years. But it's new in Utah, and Marrcrest is the first such major development in the state, although some other developments have used some of the features of the planned unit. Mr. Murphy and his associates xplained that the cluster de- use of the land than is found in subdivisions. Homes in the project have very small yards, or virtually none at all. But the houses border on a park which is maintained by the association, in effect giving everyone a yard to enjoy without have to care for Each building is distinctive. There is no sameness such as you find in subdivisions. Mr. Angle Athletic Institute Elevates Ex-T Star Don Biishore, 42, has been named administrative assistant to Frank B.

New Device Curbs Annoyance Phone Calls Efficient electronic tracing equipment and cooperation between telephone company security officials and law enforcement agencies this year has resulted in notable progress Sib curb annoyance telephone calling. =;'••' According to Jack Dalton, local district manager for Mountain States Telephone Co., a total of 48 annoyance callers -were arrested during the first 11 months of this year. Of that number, 34 were convicted. Throughout 1967, there were 16 arrests and 16 convictions. "•'V First offenders in annoyance call cases are subject to a line of $299 and/or six months in jail. Second offenses are .felonies and subject to maximum penalties of $1,000 and/or JRree years in prison. ' ~- Dalton said annoyance calls range from pranks to obscenities to threats. When calls are of a serious nature, victims are urged to report the incidents to police who, in turn, request help from the phone company. t$ The manager said most annoyance calls do not require police or telephone company action. Persons who receive prank calls are advised to hang up immediately. If calls persist, however, and police are contacted, action such as number changes or tracing of calls can be taken. The tracers identify phones from which calls are made and ; iuid further investigation enables police to make arrests. Some trrests have been made while calls are still in progress.

I believe she told her mother she was well taken care of and by a woman." By HOWARD LUXENERG UPI Business Writer NEW YORK (UPI) - The stock market took a drubbing his week as investors appeared none too thrilled over prospects of a "money-crunch." While Wall Street was not to surprised at the Federal Reserve Board's decision to like the discount rate for member banks from SVi to 5% per cent, it was caught off guard by the second boost in aboui three weeks for prime interest rates—the minimum rate char ged business concerns with i grade A credit rating. By the weekend, most of the much concern that a similar ate may be in store for other ates which would have a more direct impact on the American nation's major banks had jack ed up the prune rate to an his toric high of 6% per cent from 6% per cent. And there wa public, notably home mortgage and consumer loans. The deep concern over the money situation seemed to ne gate a generally favorable eco lomic news background. Incluc ed was President Johnson's pre diction that the federal budge for fiscal 1969 will show sm-al surpluses (a deficit had bee anticipated). It would be th first surplus since 1960. In addition, Commerce Secretary Designate Maurice Stans believed the economy would remain sound during first-half 1969, despite his view that the surtax would have more effect early next year than in '68. He elopment provides people with house which they can buy with small yard, adjacent to a mall park. But the owner doesn't have to do the yard work. Houses are mingled with expensive duplexes which don't ook at all like duplexes. In Marrcrest, some of them cost 554,000, or $27,000 a unit. Ownership Status If you bought a home in Marr- Snow Causes Jobless To Increase By United Press International The Utah Department of Em ployment Security reported Fri day a sharp increase in unem ployment and attributed it t< "earlier than usual heavy snov storms." For the week ended Dec. 14 continued claims for unem ployment insurance totaled 7, 014 an increase of 544 over th previous week. However, the figure was 82 below that of the correspondin week in 1967. Steady calls for clerical, ware house and service workers help ed hold the job calls above year ago, the department sale WORLD ALMANAC FACTS crest, you would receive a clear deed to it and could sell it without approval of neighbors the same as owning a home anywhere else. You would also automatically become a member of Marrcres Home Owners Association which owns "common land" in the de velopment. This would include the streets, which are not deed ed to the city, and the park. Two keys to this new type o development are individual!ty of the houses, and a more creative Most subdivisions, he said, are redestined to become slums, if ot bulldozed into extinction. In the Marrcrest development, ou may buy a lot and build our own house. But your archi. ectural plans would have to be pproved by the corporation to nsure compatability with the evelopment. Savings to the city stem from he fact that the developer not nly puts i nthe utilities and treets, as in subdivisions, but hat the streets are never deed- d to the city. Thus the owners retain the esponsibility for plowing the now, repairing any chuckholes which develop and for any other maintenance. By developing and maintain- ng the neighborhood park, the city's expense is less in the field of recreation. The Marrcrest development includes 15 acres, six of which are now under development. The present portion of Marr- crest is in the luxury class, but there are plans for lower-cost housing within the development. SIDE BET WASHINGTON (UPI) - The state of Pennsylvania will have to pay off in oranges if its representative, Penn State, doesn't defeat the University of Kansas in the Orange Bowl game New Year's Day.

James Pearson of Kansas if the Nittany Lions lose to the Jayhawks Jan. 1. expressed hope the surcharge could be reduced from 10 per cent to 5 per cent next July 1, and possibly eliminated the following year. The number and size 'of rings formed on tree trunks are an accurate index to a tree's age and. ah area's climate, The-World Almanac says. In wet years the growth ring is wide and in dry years it is .'narrow. Thus an aged tree can reveal to a dendrochronolog- ist, one who dates objects or events by reference to tree lings, both the age of a tree and climatic patterns.
