(AP) - Preliminary .steps looking toward reapportioning Colorado's legislature and the slate's four congressional districts will begin Nov. 3 when Director Lyle Kyle of the Legislative Council al- ·· tends a national meeting in Washington. The reapportionment will be carried out on the basis of 1970 federal census returns, although both Democrats and Republicans will be jockeying to set up districts favorable to them. Preliminary estimates, Kyle said, indicate that Colorado will neither gain nor lose a congressman. Major shifts will be necessary in the district boundaries, he predicted, to keep ap- The Weather 1:30 p.m. temperature: 55. (CSC report as of G a.m.) High Sunday - 50 Low 2?

Several Changes Numerous shifts in Colorado legislative districts also will be required, Kyle said, with the suburban counties around Denver gaining seals while Denver and rural areas will lose lawmakers. On the basis of an estimated Colorado population of 2.1 million, Kyle observed, it is possible Denver could lose one of its nine state Senate seals and two seats in the 65-member House of Representatives where it now lias 18 members. There are a total of 35 members of the Senate. The council director said research officials from each stale will allend the Washington conference and will learn from federal officials target dates when the 1970 census figures will become available. These figures, he added, probably won't be ready until December 1970, or possibly even aier. In such an event, he told a reporter, he hopes the legisla-l ure will study apportionment unlil its 1972 session. The 1971 ! agenda will he crowded, Kyle 1 predicled, and a rush job could mean enaclmenl of a law which would have to be done over. Revised districts must be set up in time for the 1972 election. The director said the legislature will need official figures to work out its apportionments and ilso must have such things as :lctailcd block maps of counties. The Colorado constitution now allows part of one county to be joined with part of another in formation of a congressional or legislative district. Kyle said preliminary estimates are that Denver will come close to number of voters fixed nationally for a congressional district, that the presen second district will have to be reduced sharply and that more residents will have to be placed in the third and fourth districts. both been Boulder Move? One possibility which has :en discussed at the Capitol is transferring rapidly - growing Boulder County from the second district to the 65,000-square mile fourth district. Kyle made no prediction on this. The stale went through a reapportionment of congressional and legislative districls a few years ago when the U.S. Su : preme Court held a previously worked out system was unacceptable because of population variations.

"There has been some confusion relating to zoning discussions in City Council and the county commissioners because, we believe, we are not familiar as laymen with zoning and planning procedures," Jack All- mitt, committee chairman, said. Probably the largest single ^vestment one makes in his lifetime is his home," Allnutt stated. "Any threat to that in vestment or to the aesthetic value of one's home is naturally subject to challenge. "Because decisions of the le gaily constitute'd governmenta body appears omnipotent to us we seek others in like predica- nent to join us in vigorous pro,est if adjacent property zoning is subject to change.

We hope soon to have step-by-step planning and zoning procedures simply stated in written form for area- wide distribution," Allnutt said "Thereafter, in cooperation with other interested groups 01 individuals, we will study the Rog- abhor change, anyway, in most forms, if we do not understand he reasons for the change, par- icularly if we feel we are sub- ect to the will of government edict arbitrarily and without egal recourse," Alnutt said.

If the findings reveal need for constructive change, we will recommem them to the Foundation's boan for submission to the appropri ate bodies.

When he sought to read it at he request of Dist. Atty. Edmund Dinis of New Bedford, Mass., lawyers for Mr. and Mrs. Joseph A. Kopechne of Berkeley leights, N.J., objected on jrounds it was hearsay. Judge Bernard C. Brominski of Common Pleas Court sus- .ained the objections four times over the repeated efforts of Dins' assistant, Armand Fernandes Jr. to have it read into he record. Arena described the accident scene and told how he was sum- noned lo the dike bridge on happaquiddick Island on the morning of July 19 and had assisted a scuba diver in recover- ng Miss Kopechne's body from .he submerged automobile. Fernandes asked Arena to describe Miss Kopechne's appearance as the police chief cradled her body in his arms. "She was dressed in a white blouse, dark slacks, a pair of existing planning and zoning sandals and everything else appeared normal, except that she was dead," Arena said. "There were .no injuries that I could sec." The police chief was asked on cross examination by the Ko- pechne attorney if he had seen any blood on her body or on her clothing. "No sir!" the chief replied. Arena said the body was ulled out of the automobile by rope, which diver John N. 'arrar of Ihe Edgarlown Fire Jeparlment had attached to the body. The attorney also wanted lo mow whether Arena had suf- ered any injury himself during he diving operalion. The police chief said he had offered a cul on one of his toes nit did not know if it had bled. \rena also said that at no time could he recall that his foot came in contact with the body. Dinis has alleged that there was blood in Miss Kopeehne's nose and mouth and on her clothing. Joseph A. Flanagan, the Ko- pechne attorney, also attempted to get Arena lo comment on whether his investigation had uncovered any evidence of criminal conduct or foul play but Fernandes objected and Brominski upheld the objection.
