Assembly Must Solve Money Problems Before Adjournment By GORDON G. 'GAUSS Associated Press Writer DENVPJR (AP) - Colorado's 48lh General Assembly still must solve money problems as well as legislative reapportionment tangles before it can quit for the year--possibly in " 10 days or two' weeks. There is no agreement yet on spending measures totaling a billion dollars. They form the heart of the $1.212 billion spending program--including federal grants--to keep the slate, its departments, colleges and institutions operating for the year beginning next July 1.

The House passed the bill with a $901.5 million total. The Senate added about $2 million-but this included $3.Y4 million out in to provide funds for lite legislature itself next year. This meant that aclually the Senate cut several appropriations made by the House. Because of heavy debate schedules and confusion caused :y Supreme Court rejection of he new legislative reapporlion- mcnt system, the Joint Budget Committee hasn't agreed on a compromise bill. Both Rep. Don Friedman, II- 3enver, and Sen. Harry 'Locke, il-Salida, who head the House and Senate conferees, say they will meet again early in the week-probably Monday. Both iredicl an agreement but nobody will say how quickly it will come. AmElr,d j--~ * ArapxCp. f · ArmSU *tW-l AtlasCp.

I l l , Awaiting outcome of the agreement on the Long Bill are a series of House-approved appropriations measures. They will stay in the Senate Appropriations Commillee headed by Locke until the state financial picture is clarified, Locke says. He heads the committee. Then, he adds, some will be brought out as a package and others probably will be allowed to die. Among the bills is 'one increasing state aid to schools from $460 per pupil annually to $518 and another appropriating funds to pay the state's share of a state-federal plan to remove radioactive uranium mill tailings from homes al Grand Junction. Leaders are hopeful of clearing (he financial bills before the new reapportkmment bills for the House and Senate are ready for action. Next Friday has been set by the chairman of the Senate Stale Affairs Committee, Republican Carl \yilliams of Denver, for committee agreement on a Senate reapportionmenl plan. House'officials hope for at By JOHN HENRY AP Busirwss Writer NEW YORK (AP) - The economy generally scored high marks on Ihe government's report card during the past week The rise in living costs eased last monlh, while workers' erage earnings showed av the sharpest March increase in seven years, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported. And the government reported !hal the gross national product, the dollar value of the nation's output of goods and services, shot ahead 11.8 per cent in the first quarter. The Consumer Price Index, whiqh measures typical family spending, rose two-tenths of one »er cent last month, less than half the February increase, the sureau said. On a seasonally adjusted basis -- taking into account the usually expected March increase--there was no change in living cosls for the first month in more than five years. After allowing for the rise in living cosls, the average weekly paycheck of nearly 50 million rank-and-file workers in March was 2.9 per cent higher than a chamber. Even if the deadline is met, |lhe session would be carried jinlo May. This would make this year's so called "short" session longer than last year's "long" session.

Grumman Corp.'s chairmai said one of its major subsi diaries, Grumman Aerospace Corp., would have to shut down rather than attempt to buil( new F14 fighters for the Nav; under an existing'contract. "We cannot proceed because we just haven't got the money to do it," said E. Clinton Towl who told a Senate panel tha Grumman Aerospace stood tc lose some $2 million on each o least as speedy action in that y gar earlier, the largest year- to-year increase since 1965, the government said. On the darker side of the economic picture, the government reported that a sharp gain in prices of 0.2 per cent during the first quarter accounted for more than half of the 11.8 per cent spurt in GNP during the period. In the last quarter of 1971, during half of which the wage- price freeze was in effect, prices rose by 1.7 per cent. Economic observers said, however, that the lower rale of advance of the cost of living in March indicated that the inflationary pressure evident in the first two monllis of the first quarter had subsided. In another development, Price Commission Chairman C. Jackson Grayson Jr. said he might be forced to impose light controls on food prices to prevent [hem from upsetting the Nixon administration's antiinf- lation program. Food prices have been among the fastest rising. He also, said price reduction rollbacks in triple amounts might be ordered for the 8 to 10 Ihe 48 F14s to be bought by tin government in the fiscal yea beginning next July 1 The bleak forecast came at c time of mounting pressure in Congress to terminate th wlrote F14 program, observer: said.
