ERTESZEK BYU to Present Honors to 3 At 100th Graduation April 18 Special awards will be presented at Brigham Young University's 100th commencement April 18 to two men and a woman in recognition of their lives of distinguished service. The awards and their recipients are: The Joseph F. Smith Family Living Award to Mrs. Stella Oaks, educator, former acting mayor of Provo, and mother of BYU President Dallin H. Oaks. The Franklin S. Harris Fine Arts Award to Karl Maiden, motion picture and television star. The Jesse Knight Industrial Citizenship Award to Dr. Jan. J. Erteszek, Los Angeles industrialist. The recipients will be recognized at the 9:30 a.m. commencement exercises in the Marriott Center, and formal citations will be presented at convocations of three different colleges later in the day. The commencement will kick off the University's centennial year celebration. Provo Acting Mayor Mrs. Oaks graduated from BYU in 1928, and in 1929 married Dr. Lloyd E. Oaks, a physician, who died suddenly in 1940, leaving his widow with three small children. She obtained a master's degree from Columbia University in 1940 in guidance and personnel administration, taught high school, and served many years as supervisor of general and adult education for Provo City Schools. Prominent in civic and professional affairs, she was a member of the Provo City Council two terms, assistant mayor, acting mayor, president of the Utah Deans of Women Association, president of the board of Utah Mental Health Clinic, twice a director of the BYU Alumni Association, chairman of the first Family Life Conference of Utah Valley, and continues active in this organization to the present. In addition to Dallin, she has a son, Dr. Merrill Oaks, a Provo eye physician, and daughter, Mrs. Ross (Evelyn) Hammond of Salt Lake City. All have graduated from BYU and filled stake or full-time LDS missions. 'High Standards'Actor Mr. Maiden, star of TV's "Streets of San Francisco" who has consistently promoted high standards of professionalism and good taste in the theater, won his first Oscar in 1951 in "Streetcar Named Desire" with Marlon Brando. He appeared as General Omar Bradley in the 1970 Academy Award winning motion picture "Patton," in which he co-starred with George C. Scott. He has also City Agrees to Close Clay Pits to Cycles, Four-Wheeler Traffic The Provo City commission has agreed to close off access to the clay pits for motorcycle and four-wheel drive traffic. A group of Edgemont residents presented the commissioners with a 130-name petition protesting the noise, dust and general annoyance caused residents in the extreme northeast section of the city. Karl Yager, spokesman for the group, said the neighbors were opposed to the establishment of a recreational vehicle park in the area and asked that the access road currently in use be terminated. He said he did not think any of the residents of the area were against the recreational vehicle park itself, but he said there was great concern that the current access goes through a residential neighborhood. Commissioner E. Odell Miner, also an area resident, said the motorcycle and four-wheel-drive problem is a continuing one in the area. He noted that at a large meeting of Edgemont residents to discuss land use, the motorcycle and four-wheel problem was aired extensively. It was the general feeling that the clay pits not be used as a permanent area, and that the road be closed, he said. "We have discussed the possibility of keeping the cycles beyond the power lines on the foothills, but access roads have been so torn up by four-wheel-drive vehicles that it is no longer usable for cyclists so they leave the road and they are cutting up hillsides and are creating a great deal of nuisance close to homes because they can't get into the clay pits," Published every afternoon Monday through Friday and Sunday morning by The Daily Herald 1555 North 200 W.

"One of the problems is that the traffic goes on all night long and it is very difficult to police," he added. Steven Stewart, of the Flying Diamond Corp., said he feels that if the four-wheel drivers are kept out the area it could be developed properly for cyclists if they would stay on the road and in the pits, but he said he understood this was not happening. After a brief discussion, Commissioner Miner said he favored closing the road and would be willing to second a motion for the closure if Commissioner M. Wayne Hillier was willing to make the motion. Commissioner Hillier obliged. Pleasant Grove Improvements OK'd on Road PLEASANT GROVE Property owners along Grove Creek Drive in Pleasant Grove have pledged their support to city officials as plans get under way to fully improve that road eastward from 100 East, Councilman E. Mark Bez/ant announced today. The proposed improvements are to include sidewalks, curb and gutter, the widening, resurfacing and paving of the road as well as other incidental things such as moving utilities and piping irrigation facilities. Mr. Bezzant said several design plans will be drawn up showing possible improvements with and without planter strips as well as a possible bike path. Funding for the project will come from the Urban Road Fund and property owners. Fifteen per cent or $40,000 of the estimated $281,000 project will be paid by the property owners. The road fund will pay the other $141,000. According to Councilman Bezzant, the city is now proceeding to set up a special improvement district which, if approved, would give residents 10 years to pay off the assessed costs as a low interest rate. Following this the city, in conjunction with the consulting engineer, will complete the location, design and other hearings so the project can begin in 1976. starred with Brando in "On the Waterfront," James Stewart in "How the West Was Won," and Spencer Tracy in "Cincinnati Kid."

ByVERLAINE ALLEN AMERICAN FORK - City council last night agreed to request funding for a $301,000 project to improve railroad crossing safety, accepted Geneva Rock Products' low bid of $25,756 for a collector road project at 700 North from 600 to 900 East, and approved three annexation requests. In other business, Mayor Malcolm H. Beck told the council he will recommend a three mill or more reduction in property taxes if sales tax is increased. "We owe it to the people," he stated. The American Fork Planning Commission has been studying safety measures recommended by the Union Pacific Railroad since last summer, but has met opposition to having some of the 27 crossings closed. To expedite at least part of the safety project, the commission suggested the program be divided into two phases. Phase one funding request would not require a public hearing or an environmental impact statement because it would not change present traffic pattern. The city will request this project begin immediately, it was decided. Phase one includes improved signals at six intersections on 100 North from 100 West to 500 East. Prefabricated gumwood crossings would be iastalled, and cantilever type signals with flashing lights would be installed at most of the crossings. Spencer G. Calderwood, engineer inspector for the Union Pacific Railroad, explained the railroad safety proposal to the council and urged immediate action if the city is to qualify for federal funds, appropriated for the fiscal year ending June 31. The Utah State Highway Department has estimated costs at approximately $301,000. The Planning Commission will have a public information meeting April 16 at Forbes Elementary school at 6:30 p.m. to explain phase two of the project. This phase would include such items as possible JOSEPH E. NELSON SARAH CAMPBELL World War I Veterans, Ladies Install Leaders Former Judge Joseph E.

The commission will recommend a public hearing based on its suggestions for phase two after receiving input from townspeople. The federal government might participate up to 90 per cent of the cost to improve safety of railroad crossings. Local government is expected to provide the remaining 10 per cent, it was pointed out. Mr. Calderwood suggested the city also apply to the Public Service Commission for part of the 10 per cent matching funds. Mayor Malcolm Beck said he will consult with the city's financial advisers immediately to explore various funding possibilities. The railroad company takes the position that its share will be to install and maintain the signals, according to Mr. Calderwood. It costs $1000 per year for each signal to be maintained. Most of this amount goes for labor to perform the necessary inspections. In 10 years time this will amount to $60,000, he pointed out. The city council approved three annexations recommended by the city planning commission. The first two were requested by Ivan Lowe and Harry Barratt, who have had their preliminary subdivision plat of the two combined properties approved. The property of Mr. Barratt was a small connection annexation. Council also approved the annexation of 8.5 acres of land just north of the Lowe annexation at approximately 700 North and 350 East. This will be known as Martin Meadows. I Nefoo School District Sells $120,000 in Bonds at 5.7% ByLYNNTILTON Zions Bank and Coughlin and Co., a Denver-based firm, purchased $120,000 worth of general obligation school building bonds from Nebo School District after submitting a joint bid at 5.7082 per cent. There were five other bidders for the bonds. Dick Christensen, fiscal agent for the district's bond sale, said, "Six bids indicates an interest in your bonds. The small amount involved precludes national interest but does demonstrate the confidence of local investors in your financial program. Mr. Christensen noted the difference in the bids was less than one-fourth of one per cent. Other bidders were Zions National Bank at 5.7778 per cent; First Security Bank at 5.7644 per cent; Kirtchner, Moore and Co., 5.977 per cent; Continental Bank and Trust, 5.7777 per cent, and Burrows, Smith and Co., 5.888 per cent. Mr. Christensen reported these rates were after deduction of any premium offered by the various firms. "The use of premium is just in case there is a tie bid," he said. Such a tie would have resulted between Zion's National Bank and Continental Bank and Trust Co., had their bids been the low ones, he said. "This is only the second time in 10 years I've seen a tie bid," he said. The bonds will be paid in two installments with half due in 1979 and the other half in 1980. Interest cost for the bonds will be $30,824.32. "The closeness of the bids indicates they are on market though it is higher than you've paid before," he said. Mr. Christensen added that North Summit School District recently sold bonds for 6.4 per cent and Alpine School District's recent $2 million, 13-year bond sale was let at 6.8 per cent. "I think you've caught the market at its low. With the $80 billion deficit the federal government will go out on the market for bonds. They will be placing $10 billion in bonds in May," Mr. Christensen said. He added the interest is up on long term loans, despite the reduced prime rate for short-term loans. "Bond supply is ahead of demand and it is my feeling that 5.70 per cent is a very reasonable rate. Kent J. Abel, assistant superintendent in Alpine District, noted that investors are nervous about long-term investments because of the uncertainty of the financial future. He observed that this fact accounts for the difference in loan rates between the two bond sales.
