They voTecTyestefday to re-J iunc seven cuiu a iiau dues uu the east side of Crest Avenue between Prosperity Way and Miramar A v e n u e to permit construction of 66 cluster apartment units. The land had been zoned to allow only single family homes. " The developer, John J. Tang-ney, had requested zoning which would permit 95 apartments in clusters of from four to eight units. Members of the county planning staff agreed with Tangney's attorney, John K. Smith, that the hillside would be unduly "scarred" by chopping it up into pads for single family homes and that construction of apartment clusters would better preserve the topography. But supervisors agreed with protesting neighbors that the requested 95 apartment units would result in a population density not in keeping with the existing residential neighborhood.

A leash law for the unincorporated areas of Alameda Coun-! ty will go into effect Jan. 2. j County supervisors yesterday! voted unanimously to enact a new county ordinance designed! to control roaming dogs and, dog packs. The leash law will not affect I animal owners living inside in- j corporated cities. It applies only ! to unincorporated areas of the county. Cities are free to enact their own leash laws or ipore the subject. The new law states that no dog may run free off of his owner's property without the consent of the property owner on whose property the dog is found. If an owner wants to take his dog for a walk the dog must be restrained by a leash no more than six feet long. The leash law wUl be enforced by animal control officers of the Alameda County Health Department. A dog found roaming the streets will be picked up by an animal control officer and taken to county pound facilities.

The punishment is up to $500 or a year in jail. However county spokesmen said such legal action probably would be taken only in unusual cases. The leash law decision was mailmen. M. L. Sanford, general manager of the homes association, said San Lorenzo residents voted 1,266 to 1 in favor of a leash law in a straw vote two years ago. A little boy, unable to sleep or eat breakfast in anticipation of seeing Santa Claus and riding the Christmas bus, was the first passenger on the Candy Cane Express.

RIDERS DAZED Oakland riders were hesitant to board the vehicle decorated with candy stripes on the outside and garlands inside. But a cheery Santa poked his head out and ushered them on board. In Alameda, school children almost jammed the bus at one place, and at another, lined up behind yard fences to wave.
