2 GREELEY (Colo.) TRIBUNE Thurs., April 27, 1972 Reapportionment Bill To Be Introduced Soon By CARL M I L L I A R D Associated Prex Writer DENVER (AP)'---The' State Affairs Committee of the Colorado', iloiise, resigned to the fad that somebody has got to give on rcapportioning Ihc slate's 65 House seals, is ex- pected'to begin work on a final House map Thursday. Committee -Chairman Clarence Quinlan, R-Antonito, told members (hey should be ready to draft, olter and agree on a bill to be introduced. Both House and Senate plans approved earlier by the legislature and signed by (lie governor were rejected by the Colorado Supreme Court last week because districts did not follow the constitutional guidelines forj compactness. · ' HMJM Mip Wednesday, a House' map drawn by (fie Legislalive Council and following Ihe strict guidelines for population and compactness was inlrpduced by Democrats at the committee meeting. Rep. Richard Lamb, D-Denver, told the committee he had not seen the map until about five minutes before the committee meeting. hamb pointed.out that (he map crossed county lines more than he liked but nevertheless was compact, even at the convenience of politicians. He noted that he and incumbent Rep. Don Friedman, a Republican, were placed in the same districts. He also noted that Rep. Carl .Gustafson, H-Denver, the House majority leader, Rep. Charles IJndley, R-Denver and Rep. Morton Pepper, R- Dcnvcr, "might be awfully close together." Also appearing before the .committee was a representative of the Greater Park Hill Community Inc., Uuis Hcnder- Henderson said, however, the map did not go beyond the Denver city limits, and thus could not predict the impact the map might have o n ' metropolitan counties. Rep. Michael Strang, R-Car- bondalc, who has done most of the committee's ; work in. drafting reapportionment maps, criticized the Legislative Council's effort for a number, of reasons. First, he said, a lot of counly lines were split and Colorado's southeastern corner could have been drawn a lot better. But more importantly, he said, was that the council did not fake geographical factors into consideration. Strang has maintained that while must constitutional be followed, guidelines that geographical factors; such as Die Continental Divide and other mounlain ranges, rivers, and other natural boundaries must be allowed for. Quinlan did not indicate how long it might take for the committee to reach agreement on a plan which would receive 33 voles in the House. Bogs Down The Senate State Affairs Committee, meanwhile, bogged down at its eight meeting lo discuss reapportionment of its 35 seals in (hat chamber. Man Under Probe in Percy Slaying LAS VEGAS, Ney.

Lupton A compact ear driven by lObcrl Manuel Lovalo of Denver came to a slop on its vhecls in a field after running ff U.S. 85 at the intersection f Colorado 52 at Fort Luplon bout 2:15 a.m. Thursday, the lighway PalroJ reported. Lovalo's soulhbound machine went off the right side of U.S. 35, traveled across Colorado 52, it two delineator posts, lunged down an embankment nd went through a fence into tie field, Patrolman Charles leister said. The 1965 aulo was damaged bout $250 and highway depart- nent properly $25. The patrol also reported numerous non-injury accidents iccurred in the county Wed icsday, many as a result of he snow storm. In most in- ilances, property damage was small. W. Young, Charles M. ingly 11 brought home a record 245 pounds of rocks and other data they feel might contain the volcanic evidence they sought when they started out 11 days ago. Their command ship Casper hit the water about 175 miles southeast of Chrislmas Island ami about 1,500 miles south of iawnii. It survived a blazing 13-minute re-entry through Hie earth's atmosphere during which temperatures of more Jian 4,000 degrees blistered the OTJlcclive heat shield. Lifted to Carrier The astronauts were lo be liflcd by helicopter to the carrier for a medical examination and two nights of rest as the ship steams toward Hawaii. The. thickening atmosphere and parachutes slowed the speed of Casper from 24,600 miles an hour lo 22 miles an lour for the touchdown In calm Pacific waters. The plashdown ended man's :jflh and perhaps most scientifically significant journey lo the surface of the moon. Three hours earlier, some 27,- XK) miles from earth, the astronauts briefly triggered jet en- jincs for four seconds to zero in on the landing target. The jet firing also assured hat an equipment bay to be jettisoned be/ore re-entry would not hit the island of Pcnrhyn if 'or some reason it survived the iery heal of re-entry. Wenthcr Excellent The main recovery ship, (he carrier Tinconderoga, reported weather in the landing arsa excellent, with clear skies, gentle winds, waves of one to three eel and temperalure in the 80s. The astronauts this morning Iroublcshot an alarm light that falsely indicated a problem ivilh the spaceship's guidance and navigation system. The same trouble occurred Wednesday and Mission Control allrib ulcd it to a stray electronic signal which it said posed no threat to the system. The guid ance computer was instructed to ignore any future such alarm. When (he light flashed nn today, ground controllers assured the astronauts there was nothing wrong with the guidance system and when the light went out after a few minules, Young reported: "Charlie was down in Alley B and knocked against the panel down there and the light went out. I just heard a clank. If you can believe that." When capsule communicator Tony England wakened the astronauts today and told them their moon voyage was near an end, Duke retorted: . "See if you can't fix it up for us lo go back, Tony. There's another 300 pounds of rock up there we'd like lo get."

Anouncing this in a 17 minute radio-TV address Wednesday night, Nixon appealed for nationwide support against what he termed "this final challenge" to his program to get U.S. troops out of South Vietnam without "surrendering our 'friends to Communist aggression." Nixon portrayed the current all-out Communist offensive in the South as a time of lest in which Saigon forces--if they get continued U.S. air and naval help--will foil a- desperate Hanoi gamble. His new two-month withdrawal schedule will cut remaining U.S. forces in South Vietnam to 49,000, which he noted was less than 10 per cent of the 549,000 authorized there when he look office in January 1969. The enemy's "one remaining hope," Nixon said in words aimed at stateside critics, "is to win in the Congress of the United States, and among the people of the United Slates, the victory they cannot win among the people of South Vietnam or on the battlefield in South Viet- m. 'The Soulh Vielnamcse have made great progress and are now bearing the brunt of the battle," he said. "We can now see ttie day when no more Americans will be involved there at all . .. "We must not falter. For all Olympic Foes Send Letters to Congress DENVER (AP) -- Citizensand Urban Affairs Committee, "or Colorado's Future, a civic O roup opposed to holding the 1976 Winter Olympics in Colorado, has sent letters lo key congressional committees asking hat appropriation requests for Olympic facilities be rejected. However, the group also asked congressional leaders to approve a $31.3 million request Olympic housing, even if games are removed from Colorado. I n a letter signed by three state representatives, members of the group, the organization said, "We urge you to consider his request carefully in view of he needs of low and medium ncome residents of Denver, rather than the sometimes cpn- licting needs of Ihe Olympics iress corps. "Furthermore, we ask lhal you consider this appropriation ·equest without the Olympic 3ames as a requisite, for in 'act the housing should be provided even if the games are removed from Denver."

Nixon coupled lough words about Hanoi's battlefield campaign-'^ victory they cannot be allowed lo win"--with a warning to enemy negotiators against "more empty propaganda" in the Paris peace talks resuming today. Referring to his renewal ol (he Paris parley, which he had broken off March 23, Nixon said: ·We arc resuming the Paris talks wilh the firm expectation that productive'talks leading to rapid progress will follow through all available channels. "As far as we are concerned, the first order of business will be lo gel the enemy to halt his · invasion of Soulh Vielnam, and to return the American prisoners of war." Negotiating Bid Presidential adviser Henry A. Kissinger said the expectation of progress at Paris stems from an appraisal that Norlh Vietnam's military push will be . accompanied by a negotiating bid and from "rather noticeable diplomatic activity that has been going on." He referred to the return to day by Colorado's concession- Pari^of £ g^fi*g£ Iconference. And he predicted Robert A. Jackson of Pueblo, i separate bers of Ihe Interior and Appropriations Committees in both he House and John and D. Senate, Lamm Parr, Denver, asked lhat any request for appropriations for facilities for :he Olympics be rejected. "The Olympics will have icavy environmental and economic costs for our stale," the letter said, "they will attract attention and people to a part of Colorado, the front range, which is already suffering severely from problems of sudden and chaotic growth . . . " the prospects as lo whether serious peace negotiations will now be possible will become clear before Nixon's trip lo the Soviet Union May 22-29. U.s: political leaders, reacted lo Nixon's speech along predictable lines. Sen. George McGovern, a Democratic presidential contender calling for a prompt U.S. pullout from Vietnam, accused Nixon of "political trickery designed to save Nixon's face and their (the Republi-. cans) jobs." House Republican Leader Gerald R. Ford of Michigan said Nixon's withdrawal announcement "fills me wilh a feeling of great confidence in his leadership and in Ihe wisdom of his Vietnam policy." of the Senate Banking, Housing Yen Is Under Tight Security On Okinawa Trip TOKYO ( A P ) -- Frogmen re-jstates today demanded North ported no signs that hijackers had planlcd explosives, and un- L/.S.

Rut Norlh Vietnam retorted it was "utterly absurd" to claim there is such an invasion. Speaking at the Vietnam peace talks, resumed after a [ive-week break, 'North Vietnamese delegate Xuan Thuy .' charged it is the United Slates lhal "is conducting a war of aggression in Vietnam." U.S. delegate William J. Por ter had. called on North Vietnam to "agree to end your invasion and commence the withdrawal of North Vietnamese troops from South Vielnam." Reduce Response Porler added that if progress can be achieved on withdrawal of North Vielnamese troops, the United Stales would reduce "the level and intensity" of its "retaliatory response lo lhat in- asion.' He called on the Norjh Vietnamese lo respond to his proposal now. or at a new session of the peace talks May 4. He warned that if Norlh Vietnan- refuses lo "deal with the sub slancc of both Ihc present invasion and general problems o peace, 'including prisoners o war," Ihe United Stales w i 1 ' break off the talks. He asserted only substance will keep us al this table." Thuy called on President Nixon to "lionor the U.S. engagement made in October, 1968, to completely and unconditionally slop the bombing and all other acts of war" against Norlh Vietnam. Nixon said in a speech Wednesday night he had "ordered that our air and naval attacks on military installations in Norlh Vielnam be continued until the North Vietnamese stop their offensive in South Vietnam." Vollack ' For Senc DENVER, ( A P ) -- The race for the Democratic nomination for United States Senator turned into a two-way contest Wednesday as 42-year-old Slate Sen. Anthony F.

Vollack called for the United Once-Secret NSC Study Brandt Nips Christian Democrat Attempt To Oust His Government By ROOM LEWALD Associated Press Writer 1!ONN tVilly lirandl Chancellor defeated an attempt loday by the Christian Democrats lo overthrow his coalilion government and replace him as chancellor of Wcsl Germany. A Christian Ocmocralic mo- lion of no confidence fell Iwo voles short of the 243 needed for its adoption. It got 247, and a majority of Ihe total 496 members in the Bundestag, the lower house of the West German parliament, was necessary to turn out Brandt's coalilion of Social Democrats and Free Democrats and replace Ihe Socialist chancellor wilh Christian Dcmocralic leader Rainer Barzel. Rimdcslng President Kai Uwc von llnssd announced that 2GO votes were cast, Brandt hnd called on his supporters lo abstain on the vote as a maneuver to spotlight any Social or Free Democrats who might go down lo Ihc voting urns to cast ballots. The implication was lhat they were reneging on their party obligations. Von Hassel said 10 delegates voted "no" to Ihc resolution and (here were three abslen- lions. The onlcome was viewed as a great victory for Brandt and a serious defeat for Ihe young, ambilious Barzel. But Defense Minister Helmut Schmidl, the deputy leader of Brandt's Social Democratic parly, said the prospect .for ratification next week of th« chancellor's nonag gressinn treaties with the So viet Union and Poland "is BS difficult now as before." Schmidl said he was cerlain t h a t Iwn members of the gov- ernment parlies voted against Brandt while one Chrislian Democrat sided wilh him. Former Chancellor Kurt George Kicsinger led (he attack on Brandt in the debate before the vote and based it on opposition to the two treaties, which recognize Germany's territorial losses at Ihe end of World War II. The Chrislian Democrats contend, that Ihe treaties, which, are crucial to the improvement of relations between West Germany and the Soviet Bloc, gave away loo much without getting enough In return, Kiesinger said the Socialist chancellor should be repudiated because Ihe treaties had neither a parliamentary majority nor a popular majority among the Ger man people. Brandt took Ihe podium lo de- fend his government as the showdown vole neared on a no- confidence vole brought by the Christian Democrats. The embattled chancellor dared any defectors from his majority to step forward. "What do they have lo fear?" he asked. "What do they have lo hide." Brandt suffered one defection before the debate began, shaving his coalition to 223 of his own Social Democrats and 25 of the allied free Democrats. Although this divided the Bundestag 248-248 and ended Brandt's one-vote majority, the Chrislian Democrats still were not sure of victory. They had to muster 249 voles--a majority of the full membership--to bring down the government and replace Brandt with Haincr Barrel, leader of Ihe opposition parly, from Vietnam, saying that a time to get out should be set "here and now." He said Viefnamization has not worked. He said he plans a people-to- people campaign aimed at the middle income group who hold jobs, pay taxes and try (o earn a living. The state senator called for the closing of federal income lax loopholes and the removal lhe for persons liv- securily who hold parttime jobs. Vollack said he plans lo campaign in the same way he has campaigned for the Senate -"walking blocks, knocking on doors and going to people rather than expecting them to come lo me." He said he hopes to get $100,000 for a campaign but doubta his success because he doesn't believe in anonymous donors He also said he will not run a deficit campaign. Allett Toush Responding to questions, he said he considers financing of the Olympics as a "national problem" but thinks the Olympic committee will have to come up wilh facls and. figures lo gel money from ony : governmental source.
