As a result of the energy crisis, the annual Windcrest Light-Up Christmas light display has been cancelled.  A daytime contest will be substituted, says Mrs. Robert Jenkins, sponsor of the event.  The city will still be installing lights downtown on schedule but a decision to turn them on will be made at a later date.
