Corr of Lexington, Mass.. a suburb of Boston. He said he needs 65 cities. The FBI said Monday the sub- uros paced a 5 per cent increase in the nation's reported crimes in 1365. Crime in suburbia was up by 8 per cent over 1%4. with 12 per cent more rape and 15 per cent more robbery. "Certainly our crime rate is growing, but then so is our population.

He answered: 'Oh. hell, I'm late for work already.' " Despite the statistics, all is not bleak in the suburbs. In the Atlanta, Ga., suburb of College Park crirae is down 13 per cent. "This year I've had one auto stolen in two months/' says Police Chief T. Owen Smith. Smith said he believes the decrease stems from cooperation by Greater Atlanta authorities. He said: "We feel that our Metropol organization has done something — the cooperation, better education, and communication." One of the wealthiest suburbs in the country is Winnetka, HI., just north of Chicago. It has no industry, no hangouts, it is dry. its population is stationary — and so is its crime rate. Winnetka has had no homicides or rapes in more than two years. Last year it had 39 burglaries and 35 major larcenies. Chief Don Derning says residents are quick to report suspicious persons and to notify police when they are leaving town. Many of the communities surveyed are affluent, and that means burglaries. "It seems like wealthy people «.re movi ng out of the cities into areas like ours." said Chief R.J- Hundley of Prairie Village, Kan., a community near Kansas City. "This is increasing our losses. We try to combat >t by loading police into areas with the greatest incidents." "We may go a year or two without a murder, but housebreaking is our biggest problem," said Philip Purcell, chief of police in Newton. Mass.. and president of the International Association of Chiefs of Police. Commissioner McMahon of Yonkers attributes a high percentage of the burglaries to narcotics. Eliminate the narcotics problem, he said, and "a very substantial decrease in the crime rate would follow."

The governments, usually controlled by persons who have lived in the communities for years, require time to assess and react to their crime problems. This in turn contributes to the increase in the crime rate.

Texas Ave. Baytown, Texas Phone 582-8131 Bonds Eyed By Hunters Of Bargains By SAM DAWSON AP Business News Analyst NEW YORK (AP) —Bargain hunters and fugitives from the stock market are coming to the aid of the hard-hammered bonds. Prices of bonds—U.S. Treasuries, corporates or tax- exempt municipals—have fallen so low and yields have thus risen so high that investors in recent days have been coming into the market as buyers Yields on outstanding securities have been pushed so high, however, that new issues are forced to carry interest rates higher than have been seen for 30 years. Dealers in bonds say guardedly that renewed interest in them of late may be fashioning af loor under the prices. They trace the increased buying of these securities to their rising yields, and more idle money now in the hands of investors who have sold common stock heavily of late. Prices of some U.S. Treasury long-term bonds have fallen to the point where one bought at today's quotation yields 5 per cent or better on the dollars invested, even tough the interest rate of less than 4 per cent, of course, stays fixed. And at maturity the Treasury will redeem the bond at face value of 51,000, slthough today's going price may be only $940. In the case of many corporate bonds the price drop has been more pronounced. Available yields have risen well above 5 per cent, for example, a leading utility's Sl.OOO bond maturing in 1983 " bears the fixed interest rate of 3% per cent. But its market price has fallen to 5800. making the return more than 5% per cent. In the tax-exempt field, the general rise in interest rates— from savings accounts to bank loans to mortgages—has caused a like price decline. Commercial banks, which i own about one-third of all mu-i nicipals, have been selling some of their holdings to get funds to meet the demand for loans. Interest on these loans has risen so high that they yield the bank far more thand id the municipal bonds, even taking into account the tax free angle. Offerings of new corporate and tax - exempt issues are heavy now. As the demand for funds grows, the offerings are expected to increase. Tonight On.
