u II GREELEY C«U.) TRIBUNE Wet, ftUrck It, 117* » urn* tiMtv,. FUGITIVE CAPTURED -- Gary D. "Cotton" Adamson, 35, left, a fugitive from the Pnlnrado State Prison who married actress Sue Lyon in a highly publicized prison wedding in 1973 is taken into the Indianapolis federal Returns to childhood city building by federal agents Tuesday. Adamson was arrested moments after a gunman held up westside Indianapolis bank. He is being held as an escapee and as a suspect in the robbery. (AP Wirephoto) Sue Lyon's convict husband charged with bank robbery By B.J. GILLEY INDIANAPOLIS (UPD-Not long ago, it appeared that Gary Adamson, 35-year convict husband of movie actress Sue Lyon, "had everything going for him." He stood a chance of freedom in the next three to five'years. Then he he escaped from a Colorado prison. To make matters worse, authorities said Adamson returned to his childhood city, of Indianapolis and robbed a bank Tuesday and was caught minutes later. Police said the escaped convict walked into a branch of the Indiana National Bank, pushed a woman customer aside and told her, "Gimme all the money and make it fast." Adamson had a revolver in his right hand and took the money -J1.040 - with his left hand, police said. Minutes later, after a two- mile chase during which police shot out the rear window of the stolen car he was driving, Adamson was arrested. Adamson, who spent much of his childhood in Indianapolis, was ordered held on $250,000 bond Tuesday after arraignment on bank robbery charges. The bond was set $150,000 higher than the U.S. attorney requested because Adamson also was wanted for his escape from the Colorado State Hospital at Pueblo Feb. 28. He escaped from the facility after earlier telling his wife, perhaps best known for her movie portrayal of the 14-year- old nymphet "Lolita," that he had abandoned plans to make a getaway. Adamson married Miss Lyon in a much publicized prison ceremony Nov. 4,1973, while he was at the federal penitentiary in Canyon City, Colo. She later filed for divorce, but then let the matter drop. Adamson was serving two 20 to 40 year terms for second degree murder and assault when he escaped. "The guy had everything going for him," sald.Georee Levy, chief of psychological services at the prison. "He was doing federal time with state time Instead of doing it back-to-back. Everybody bent over backwards to help the guy ... and he had a chance of getting out in the next three to five years." Hogan says Carter victory emphasizes broad appeal DENVER iAP -- Former Georgia Gov. Jimmy Carter's victory Tuesday in the Florida Primary demonstrates his broad appeal to U.S. voters, according to Ihe chairman of Carter's Colorado steering committee. Former Lt. Gov. Mark Hogan said Florida was a critical test for Carter because of a rash of recent newspaper and magazine articles critical of him. President Ford's Colorado Campaign chairman, attorney Steve Duncan, was quiet in his jubilation about (he President's victory over Ronald Reagan. "I'm curious to see (former California; Gov. Keagan's response," Duncan said. "I would hope this is the time for Gov. Reagan to consider jumping on the President's train." However, the head of Reagan's Colorado effort, Michael South, said he expected the Ford-Reagan rivalry to last right up to the Republican National Convention in Kansas City in August. South said the Florida results make the Reagan committee's efforts in Colorado all the more important, because "in a close race, Colorado could make the difference." State Sen. Don MacManus, D- Energy demand fo boost sfafe, Vanderhoof says DENVER (DPI) - With careful planning and use of severance taxes, energy development on Colorado's Western Slope will lift Ihe area's standard of living to the highest in the nation, according to former Governor John Vanderhoof. In a speech to the Citys Club Tuesday, he said (he demand for energy resources will double the areas' population by 1990. However, overcrowding will not occur because the figure will remain under the population tally in Jefferson and Arapahoe counties. Although the development will make it difficult to provide needed services for new residents, Vanderhoof said a tax on energy minerals mined in the area would allow communities to supply new schools, roads, sewers and other services. According to Vanderhoof, 80 per cent of the tax should be returned to the cities until impact conditions were controlled. Then, he said, the severance money should be put into the state coffers. Gal/egos maybe ousted WASHINGTON (UPI) - Former Denver attorney Bert Gallegos, director of Ihe U.S. Community Services Administration, may be replaced shortly by another Colorado man, officials said today. A possible successor to Gallegns in tne $4.1,000 a year job is Samuel R. Martinez, Denver regional director of (he . · ~ r*..,,,),,,,,,! n f i^bor and head of the Mountain Plains Federal Regional Council. The U.S. Civil Service Commission last November accused Gallegos of violating civil service rules by demoting David Vanderburgh, regional director of (he anti-poverty agency in Denver, in 1974, so that he could appoint Arthur J. Marquez. a Republican. Adams County, a state coordinator for Sen. Henry Jackson of Washington, called Jackson's Florida totals "respectable" and said the most significant result coming out of Tuesday's primary was that "(Alabama Gov. George) Wallace has had it. "If he (Wallace) couldn't do it in Florida, the voters won't take him seriously anymore," MacManus said. However, Ann Herring, manager of Wallace's Denver office, said she still felt the Alabama governor would finish on top when all the votes are tabulated. Two black legislators 'worn out' DENVER (UPI) - Two black legislators who skipped an "issues conference" of Colorado Democrats in Greeley last weekend said they weren't boycotting the meeting, but were simply exhausted from lengthy legislative work. The explanation came from Reps. Arie Taylor and Wellington Webb, both D-Denver. They said they worked at the Capitol late Friday and again Saturday in a weekend session of the House. "We were just worn out," Mrs. Taylor snid. "We didn't boycott that meeting." Clarke Watson of Boulder, a black participant in Ihe conference, called the absences "conspicuous" and suggested black leaders might be seeking excuses lo avoid Democratic meetings because of unhappiness w i t h Ihe party.
