CUwl tu.-s Plenty of free parking-Co/ 'Ave. entrance rent of store Vandals smash lights on Kisco holiday trees MT. KISCO—Store owners here are on the watch for vandals who, since Sunday, have been destroying lights on the Christmas trees in front of village stores. The trees, which were put in place over the weekend, had over a third of their bulbs either smashed or stolen by Tuesday morning, according to Walt Jacobs of C.J. Daum sporting goods shop, a Chamber of Commerce official, who checked damage throughout the village. Real trees decorated with lights were suggested by Mt. Kisco artist Amy Jones to replace the decorations made of syn­ thetic materials previously used in the village. Before approving the proposal, Chamber of Commerce members checked with merchants in Bedford and Westport, Conn,, where live trees have been used in the past, and were told that vandalism had not been a problem in those towns. Two of the Mt. Kisco trees were knocked over. Others have had their lights removed, and on many some or all of the lights have been smashed. Adults as Well as children have been seen breaking the bulbs but none of the vandals have yet been caught by the police. Chamber of Commerce officials say they will urge maximum penalties for anyone found damaging the trees. The individual merchants in the village have paid for the decoration at the rate of $30 per tree. One hundred trees have been put up along main thoroughfares in the village. Need for UDC project questioned in Yorktown YORKTOWN — The Home Rule Com­ mittee hopes a survey it is now making will prove Yorktown does not need apart­ ments for 100 low and middle income fam­ ilies planned by Urban Development Cor­ poration. The survey results, Home Rule Com­ mittee Chairman Gerald Kahn believes, will be strong ammunition in the fight against UDC. The corporation purchased a Gomer Street site and announced plans to build apartments on it last summer. A moratorium on UDC projects has post­ poned further action until January 15. Mr. Kahn said the survey will be com­ pleted before the moratorium ends. Mr. Kahn said Thursday that so far the survey has shown \there isn't a lot of need in Yorktown. UDC says the housing is for Yorktown residents living in substandard housing, and those who work here but can't afford to live here. \The town engineer says there are five substandard houses in Yorktown,\ the chairman continued, \The survey is to find out if 95 others can qualify.\ Home Rule members are looking for qualified tenants in the town municipal of­ fices, private businesses and the school district. \One of the biggest things they've harped on\ Mr. Kahn said, \is the school teachers.\ Beginning techers in York- town earn $9,100. Single persons are limited to $7,000 annual income to live in subsidized housing. A first- year teacher would have to be married and have several children to qualify. An unlikely circumstance, Mr Kahn believes. UDC's claim that the 84 persons waiting for apartments in Yorktown's Urban Renewal project show Yorktown's need for low cost housing is not true, Mr. Kahn said. An investigation by Citizen Advisory Council to UDC indicated many on the list were not Yorktown residents. Also, Mr. Kahn said, the investigation revealed there is no proof that any of the 84 have qualifying incomes. Andrew T. Robinson, CAC chairman, confirmed Mr. Kahn's interpretation of the CAC findings. The Home Rule Committee was to meet Friday night to discuss additional survey results. 12 more indoor courts planned (Continued From Page One) years? That is what a metal building will look like in 10 years.\ Metal was originally intended for temporary buildings, he said. Town Supervisor John A. Lombard! said the state building code permits con­ struction of metal buildings. According to Mr. Miseo's letter, the new building \would maintain the charac­ ter of the club house\ by using a similar design. A special permit is required by the town before plans are approved. The board will study the request and ask for more specifics from Mr. Miseo on building size and number of outdoor courts. In other action the board. Set up for public hearing January 11 at 10 p.m. a proposed sewer district for the Armonk business center. Received a report from the Friends of the North Castle Library stating that an> alarm system is being installed in the library at no cost to the town. An alarm will ring at North Castle Police head­ quarters and outside the building in case of illegal entry or fire. New license plates due Jan. 1 (Continued From Page One) 7,420,798 motor vehicles registered in the state Mr. McHale said the new plates will go on vehicles with multiple requirements (front and back), while new tabs will be issued to users of single plates (such as motorcycles). Those residents whose registrations expire between now and December 31,1972, will get a new tab, and receive new plates when the year's registration expires. The new plates will also have a place for a tab Plates can be obtained at MVD bureaus, or by mail application upon notification of an expiring registration by the department. Since the new reflecting plates cost more to manufacture, motorists will face a one-time $1 charge in addition to the registration fee computed on the basis of the weight of the vehicle The extra income realized by the one-time fee will go into the state's general fund, Mr McHale said What of the old plates 7 Those with barns can nail them to the wall, collectors can add them to their treasures, and those who couldn't care less can discard them Yorktown night classes to get official approval YORKTOWN - Yorktown School Board will give official approval Wednesday night to an evening high school program for students The program will give Yorktown and Mahopac pupils an alternate to regular daytime classes.

He said the school board has given unofficial approval previously, making its action on Wednesday only a formality.

All the teachers are paid $9 per class hour. A social studies teacher will be hired when a suitable person Is found, Dr. Anderson said.
