6 GREELEY (Colo.) TRIBUNE Sat., April 14,1OT3 Judge turns down effort to separate Texas men's trials OPEN DAILY»:30-10; SUN. 1M GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) - Peremptory challenges to prospective jurors continued today after a defense motion to separate the trials of two Texas men charged with murder and kid- naping in the death of a 20-year- old Thornton girl was denied Friday. The motion was denied by Golden District Court Judge Daniel Shannon who is presiding over the trial of Sherman McCrary, 47, and Carl R. Taylor, 38, who are charged in connection with the death of Leeora. Rose Looney in August 1971. Miss Looney's body was found three days after she had been abducted from the Lakewood doughnut shop where she worked. Officials said she had been strangled, raped and shot. Leonard Waldbaum, a court- appointed attorney for Taylor, made the request for separation of the trials of the two defendants. . Waldbaum said he objected to questions being asked of prospective jurors that in- dicated evidence might be introduced during the trial that would be admissable against one defendant but not the other. Both prosecuting and defense attorneys said the trial' itself might not get underway for several days-because of the difficulty in finding prospective jurors who have been unexposed to pretrial publicity. As (he peremptory challenge phase of the trial continued, none of the original 13 jurors empaneled remained on the jury. One defense attorney said that it is likely that all the reserve jurors would be called before each side exhausts its 19 peremptory challenges. Many of the questions directed to prospective jurors thus far have involved the juror's ability to separate evidence admitted for one, but not for both, of the defendants. One female 'juror was dismissed Friday for saying that she believed the defendants had been turned over to law enforcement officials by another member of the familv. Colorado close-up By GORDON G. GAUSS Associated Press Writer Something new has entered the process of developing a state budget for Colorado. It is an approach called "program Budgeting." Essentially, this comes down to listing eacli expenditure according to purpose, rather than under the state department receiving the item. Filibuster readied for voting bill WASHINGTON (AP)-Oppo- » nents of a Senate bill to permit ' postcard voter registration in federal elections hope to filibuster the measure to death next week. Supporters say they have enough votes to pass the bill it-. they can muster the two-thirds majority necessary to shut off the filibuster. The legislation is designed to encourage voting in federal elections by allowing voters to avoid the complexities of local registration regulations. It would require the Census Breau to mail registration cards to potential voters. Individuals would become eligible to vote by filling out the card and mailing it back to the government. Hearings slated on underground nuclear project WASHINGTON (AP) -- Sen. Floyd Haskell, D-Colo., said Friday that the Senate Interior subcommittee on Public Lands will hold hearings on the Rio Blanco underground nuclear gas stimulation project May 12. Haskell said he scheduled the hearings to obtain "additional information" on the blast scheduled for northwestern Colorado. "This test affects the health and welfare of the citizens of Colorado and should not be handled behind our backs," . Haskell said. "The Atomic Energy Commission must be able to justify what they are doing at an open public hearing."- The AEC announced Thursday lhat a contract for the project had been signed with CER Geonuclear Corp. of Las Vegas, Nev. The AEC said Ihe test would lake place in mid-May "at the earliest." Veterans nursing home given nod DKNVE1UAP) - The House Appropriations Committee Friday approved a bill to establish a nursing home for Colorado's armed service veterans. The bill carried an appropriation of $42,000 for the proposed home which would bo localcd nl Florence. There was no Indication when (he bill would be up for debate on the Houst) floor. The first "program Budget" has been handed over to the legislature by Gov. John Love. It was developed by the executive budget staff. The dollar figures in it are the same as those contained in the familiar budget book presented to the lawmakers several weeks ago, but the different location of the items is bound to be confusing -at least until the new process is understood thoroughly. Eventually, the governor believes, the budget will be more under-standable in the new form. It lists every spending recommendation under one of nine categories--the administration of justice, resource development, transportation, social as sistance, health, general government, education, natural re sources management and conservation and public protection. As examples of what happens under the new groupings, various items for the Department of Higher Education are found in five of the categories- resource development, social services, health, education and natural resources management and conservation. Items for the Department of Institutions are found in three categories pnd those for the governor's office are spread over five of the categories. In the 149-page document's expenditures summary, under the education function total spending of $573,049,974 is listed. This includes $364,907,884 from the stale general fund The amounts cover spending for higher education as well as for public schools. In addition, construction programs of $35,860,814 are listed in the category. Thegovernor's budget recommendations total more than $1.4 billion for the year -- $1,333,395,364 for operations and $69,195,894 for construction. These figures include money from all sources including federal grants, motor fuel tax, college tuitions and fishing licenses, for example. They total $731,266,824 for operations and $9,032,831 construction. General fund money the general recommends spending comes to $602,128,540 for operations and $60,163,063 for construction.
