It will mean the end of cold meals for dispat- chers and other emergency service regulars. oOo HIGH INTE~ RATES HURT CRESCENT -- Virgil Melson, president of The Bank of Crescent, said high interest rates hurt business activity in a town or area. He predicts they will be lower in 1985, which will cause purchases to be made that were not last year.

"With the in- terest rates going down, these people are back in the market."
