      WAR MEMORIAL'S SIGN MAY SHRINK: The hillside sign tallying U.S. military deaths in Iraq would shrink by half under a pact the City Council is to consider Tuesday night.
       
      The sign amid a field of 1,600 crosses drew city attention as a violation of its sign code when memorial organizers set up the display on Veterans Day last year.
       
      The 64-square-foot sign is about twice the size the city allows without a permit on a residential property. The tentative agreement with the organizers would reduce the sign to about 32 square feet and shift it to the west side of the hill above Deer Hill Road across from the Lafayette BART station.
       
      The City Council will consider the agreement at 7 p.m. Monday at the Lafayette Community Center, 500 St. Marys Road.
       
      The display originally had 300 crosses. Organizers say they plan to add crosses until they have one for every U.S. troop fatality, now about 3,100.
