GREE1.EY (Colo.) TRIBUNE Mon.. May 30. 1977 Air standard victors to oppose fuel taxes THE LOCKHORNS a B By \ULL1A.M E. CLAYTON WASHINGTON lL : PI) - SomeCcngressional sources are saying the same forces that brought about an auto industry victory on clean air legislation last week will be at work opposing President Carter's new fuel and auto taxes. Rep. Paul Rogers. D-F!a., sponsor of the clean air bill in the House, said "I think there will be the same forces at play" when measures for gasoline and gas-guzzling auto taxes are debated. Rogers lost a battle Thursday to keep auto exhaust on a strict cleanup schedule. The House voted to give automakers extra time to tool up for cleaner exhausts in the future. Its version of the bill, which amends the Clean Air Act of 1970, would drop altogether standards for nitrogen oxides and carbon monoxide that were included in the original law. Similar legislation is in the Senate, awaiting floor action. The administration had backed tougher restrictions on auto emissions. Rogers jatu r"i itidy his loss in the House "was the result of sustained and heavy lobbying efforts by the automobile manufacturers, dealers (and) ... the United Auto Workers." The House vote is one "signal" of the possible fate of the President's proposed standby tax on gasoline and levy on inefficient-automobile taxes, he said. If the sentiment that amended the clean air bill prevails on Carter's energy proposals, Rogers said, "you'll be able to have more gas-guzzling cars spewing more pollution." House Democratic Whip John Bradero'as, D-Ind., agreed the tiean air action means gasoline and auto taxes have 'tough sledding" ahead. Several other members of Congress, already had said the gasoline tax had little chance of passage. "THANK5 FOR STAVING UP TO BE SURE OFMY6AFE RETURN."

Richard Lamm has vetoed five more bills passed by Colorado lawmakers, includingmeasures on water well permits, motor vehicle equipment and mortuary insurance plans. The actions, announced as the long holiday weekend began, bring to eight the total number of bills Lamm has vetoed during the current session. One measure would have weakened the ability of state and local governments to control the location of waste disposal facilities. It drew opposition because the bill would have allowed the operation of car-shredding facilities, such as one planned by the CFI Steel Corp. near Englewood, without the approval of local governments. Lamm said several lawmak- ers from Arapahoe County had asked him to veto the measure. Another bill rejected by the governor would have, in effect, doubled the amount of water which could be withdrawn from well fields along Colorado's borders. State and local water officials had argued against that measure, saying it would deplete groundwater supplies and be unfair to holders of well permits in areas away from the state's borders. A third bill vetoed by Lamm would have set new requirements for visibility from motor vehicles, including restrictions on the use of reflective materials on the windows of vans. The governor said the measure could discriminate against van owners. A fourth vetoed measure would have allowed mortuaries to sell life insurance naming themselves as beneficiaries, a practice not allowed under present law. Lamm said the biil was a special interest measure that would hurt consumers. Earlier last week, Lamm also vetoed a measure which would have required advance notice of inspections under the Colorado Occupational Safety and Health program. That bill, according to the governor and other state officials, would have weakened the program. Lamm earlier in the session vetoed Republican-backed measures which would have changed lobbyist reporting requirements, altered the state's bilingual-bicultural education program and prohibited compulsory union membership for public employes. government has the capacity to defend itself. But Former U.S. commander in Korea Richard G. Stilwell says U.S. troops there "are the key to security and well-being of 36 million human beings" and their removal will increase the risk of war. And Sen. George McGovern, D-S.D., says presence of the troops makes it appear the United States is in full support of a repressive government in Seoul. These differing viewpoints highlight the debate over President Carter's plan to phase out 33,000 of the 40,000 American forces remaining on the Korean peninsula ever since the end of the Korean war in 1953. The debate received widespread attention last week when Maj. Gen. John Singlaub, chief of staff of " Army headquarters in Seoul, was reassigned for publicly criticiz- State gets $40 million jobs funding DENN'ER (AP)-State officials have been flooded with hundreds of suggestions on how to spend 540 million in federal job stimulus grants. State and county employment agencies Â·will receive the money to establish 5,700 public service jobs in Colorado under legisla- tion signed by President Carter in mid-May. Officials have only three restrictions on the type of job that can be created with the money. The job must be new, so those already employed won't be bumped from their jobs. The work must be "productive,"not Property tax relief, corrections debated DENVER (UPI) The long- debated issues of property tax and corrections are only two of the bills lawmakers must reach a compromise on before adjourning the 1977 session of the Colorado Legislature. The property tax measure and the corrections proposals each have different versions drafted in the Senate and House to be recounciled. Bilingual education, anti-obscenity standards and several other bills earlier have been sent to compromise committees. A re-adjustment of levies which left many homeowners demanding help made property tax relief a top item for lawmakers this session. The House has settled on a plan to give homeowners and renters credit against income taxes. Under that version, the estimated $31 million in lost revnue would come from a S16.5 million increase in the state cigarette tax, the newly drafted severance tax and a dip into the state's surplus. However, Senate lawmakers balk at plans to cut the surplus. In addition, the legislators want to limit the help to one year only. The chambers are equally divided on the corrections problem. The House wants to build a new maximum security facility at- the Colorado State Penitentiary while Senate lawmakers propose remodeling the existing building. Compromises must also be worked out on a proposal to increase the state gasoline tax, a measure to grand pay increased to county and state officials and a proposal to set up auto emission inspections. "leaf-raking," as one Denver official put it. And the jobs must help workers develop skills they can use to find other jobs next year, when the federal grants expire. Several suggestions have been made on two themes: home insulation projects to conserve energy and projects to pre'.ids at-home legal, medical, housekeeping and other services for the elderly. Some have suggested insulating the homes of the elderly. The employment departments have designed and will direct some of the work projects themselves. But most of the job creating is being done by other government agencies and nonprofit organizations. Sam Sandos, a state employment official, says he already has approved funds for increased dog control in Summit County, an art van to carry culture to the state's less populous counties, and a program for contacting fathers who are behind on child-support payments. Richard Armstrong of the Â· Denver Manpower Administration; is considering funding for, among other things, free performances of the Ballet Folklorico of Mexico and a public information service for the Community College of Denver. In all, Denver will get $10.5 million to create 1,500 jobs. Adams County will get $4.2 million for 600 jobs; Jefferson County, $3.9 million for 550 jobs; Arapahoe County, ?2.5 million for 500 jobs; Boulder, $2.9 million for 400 jobs; and the rest of the state, $15.5 million for 2,100 jobs. a written debate sponsored by the American Enterprise Institute. The research group supporting the President was the Center for Defense Information. It said in a report Sunday that "the North Koreans could not discount massive American support for South Korea no matter how few Americans were left in South Korea." Carter has voiced much the same argument. The American presence, the study added, has been to serve as a "tripwire," setting off U.S. Involvement in case of an invasion. "However, the tripwire function does not require one division or any fixed number of U.S. troops," it said. Stilwell said "the withdrawal of ground forces from Korea, without major countervailing concessions on the Communist side, will undermine the vitality of free Northeast Asia ... and greatly increase the risk of armed conflict." He argued that the 2nd Division, "as currently deployed, guarantees that neither the United States nor the Republic of Korea--nor indeed Japan -- will be involved in another war on the Asian mainland." rPATIO SAL Make your home more livable... at a price that's easy to live with.

(AP) -- A San Francisco woman has been hospitalized after she was shot by a Greenwood Village police officer during what officials described as a child-custody dispute. Officials at Swedish Hospital said the shooting victim, Jo Ann Moore, 28, was in stable condition Sunday night with a bullet wound in the left shoulder. Police Chief Kyle Sowell said Mrs. Moore and her husband, William Moore 111, 29, of Greenwood Village, are separated, with Moore awarded the custody of their child. Another complaint added against Coors DENVER (UPI) - The Adolph Coors Co., has been named in another complaint for unfair labor practices by the National Labor Relations Board for changing employe benefits without negotiating with the union. Mrs. Moore allegedly tried to take the child April 30 but was unsuccessful, Sowell said. Sowell said Greenwood Village authorities were notified several weeks ago that Mrs. Moore had left California and might attempt to take the child. Moore contacted police Sunday, saying he thought his wife was in the area. When police officer Diane Robison contacted Mrs. Moore, the California woman attacked the officer with a claw hammer, police said. The officer managed to take the hammer away from the woman, but she fled the scene in a car. A short distance away, the officer again confronted Mrs. Moore. The officer said she shot at Mrs. Moore as the woman came at her with a knife. ljhwaiBB SahV ,' 669-1176 482-5493 352-0936 PEASE HOME IMPROVEMENTS 3848 South College Aie. Ft.

(AP) - They came to grieve for 228 mining disaster victims at a sealed mine entrance overlooking thriving Hanna, Wyo., but the mourners and color guard filled fewer than a dozen pickup trucks this year. Not one close relative of the miners killed more than 69 years ago heard a minister pray at a monument to the dead Sunday as the American flag snapped in the wind and a drag line bobbed for coal on a distant hill. Their ranks are growing thin with the passing years -- the children who grew up without fathers and the women who were widowed by the two coal mining calamities. Two women who were alive when Hanna, then a community of barely 1,300, suddenly became a town of widows and fatherless children decided this year not to negotiate the rutted road to the hillside monument. Union Pacific Coal Co. sealed its ill-fated Mine Number One in 1908 after the second of two mining disasters, making the mine a tomb for 27 men whose bodies never were recovered. One hundred sixty-nine miners died at the mine in an explosion on June 30, 1903, and the last of the bodies wasn't recovered until November of that year. The mine was reopened a year later. The explosion shredded Hanna's social fabric. The community suddenly had 150 widows and over 600 children without fathers. On March 28, 1908, as the community was beginning to regain some of its former vigor, ear-splitting explosions snuffed out Uie fives of 59 more miners and members of a rescue team dispatched to save them. The coal company sealed the mine after that. A Wyoming mine inspector reported to the governor that the coal company had been lax in obeying mine safety laws. The Union Pacific Coal Co. paid each of the 33 widows $800, plus a stipend of $50 for some of the 103 fatherless children -- those who were under 15. Ettie Halasey, 72, was 3 years old when her father perished in the first explosion. Her uncle was one of the doomed rescuers who entered the smoking and collapsing mine, she said. "It left an awful lot of widows," she said. "I don't know- how some of them managed. I think some of them took in one or two boarders so they could at least eat and get along." Most packed their belongings and left Hanna, she said. Mrs. Ilalasey's mother, Sue Mangan, was one of the handful of widows with pluck enough to launch her own business. Mrs. Mangan successfully operated a candy store and remarried. Mrs. Mangan is in her early 90s now. Failing health forced her to scuttle plans to attend the annual observance at the monument Sunday. Her daughter stayed home with her. But her daughter says Mrs. Mangan weaned her children on stories about the lean times that stalked the survivors of the disasters. "There was an awful lot of tragedy," Mrs. Halasey said. "Some women never recovered. Things were never the same." A waterbed won't sag like an "old-fashioned" spring mattress.
