GREELEY (Colo.) TRIBUNE Thurs., Feb.», 1»7« Mint meeting boycott planned by legislators tiy The Associated Press Sen. Gary Hart and Rep. Pa (ricia Schroeder, both Colorack Democrats, planned to boycott today's meeting called by the U.S. Treasury Department on the Issue of location of a new Denver Mint. The Treasury Department called the meeting to explain its support of Littleton as the site for the mint. Meanwhile, Denver businessmen are expressing their opposition to location of the mint in Littleton. They prefer the origi- nally planned site in Denver's Park Hill area. In announcing plans to boycott a meeting with Deputy Treasury Secretary David MacDonald, Hart and Mrs. Schroeder said the meeting would be a waste of time since the department already has made its decision. Sen. Floyd Haskell, D-Colo., said he would send a representative to the meeting, but four other members of the Colorado congressional delegation appar- ently will not attend. Rep. William Armstrong, R-Colo., who represents Littleton, has said he will attend. MacDonald was expected to outline reasons why Treasury Secretary William Simon favors shifting mint operations to a vacant Gates Rubber Co. plant in Littleton. The Senate Banking Committee is scheduled to hold a hearing on the relocation question in Washington Friday. Bill Pierce, general manager of BNL Development Corp., a subsidiary of Burlington Northern Railroad, is one of the more outspoken critics of locating the mint in Littleton. He claims the Park Hill site is ideal and meets specifications of the U.S. General Services Administration and (he Treasury Department. A vacant tire factory would bo a "second rate" location because the mint is regarded as part of the nation's foundation, Pierce contends. UpKcot Co. BanUmninid - »»t« ""'1' ImiPwtn.

The bill is the first legislation giving the BLM statutory authority to administer the 451 million acres of federally owned lands under its jurisdiction. The bureau administers one-fitth of the country's land and two-thirds of all federal lands in the nation. A similar bill is pending in the House Interior subcommittee on public lands.

The House committee changed one of the bills to require that facilities make at least 25 per cent of their gross income from food before being classified as restaurants qualifying for multiple liquor licenses. The bill, sponsored by Sen. Kingston Minister, R-Securily, originally called for a 20 per cent food requirement. The figure was lowered to 15 per cent during debate on the Senate floor. The bills were supported by the Colorado Association of Restaurant Owners hut opposed by the Colorado Licensed Retailers Association.

Moore said he was appealing the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals dismissal of his suit against the Academy.
