About half the Sirica's Jury Selection Process To End Today WASHINGTON (AP) -- After questioning hundreds of Washington residents for more than a week on what they know and think about Watergate, U.S. Dislricl Judge John J, Sirica is about .to select a jury in the Watergate cover-up trial. The painstaking jury selection process is to be completed today, thus clearing the way for Watergate prosecutors to lay out their case against the five defendants starting Mon day. Sometimes one-by-one and sometimes in groups, Sirica spent 10-hour days in his closed courtroom seeking out jurors ·sufficiently unbiased by two years of news coverage of the Watergate scandals. Watergate prosecutors remain fearful that many potential jurors are reluctant to convict the defendants, three of whom were former President Richard M. Nixon's closest as- si slant:;. In court papers, the prosecutors said many called to jury duty were troubled that Nixon's pardon allowed him to go free while the others faced prosecution for the attempt to suppress the investigation into the original Watergate burglary. Nonetheless, Todd Christofferson, Sirica's law clerk, said Thursday nighl that a pool of 45 persons had been sifted out for the final phase of jury selection. Once the group of 45 is asked a few questions today, Sirica is to open the courtroom to public and press for the first time since last Wednesday. In the final step of picking the jury, defense and prosecution lawyers are to make eli- minations based' solely on their feeling thai one person or an- olber would foe unsympathetic to their cause. Once the so called peremptory challenges have been completed, the f i n a l jury of 12 plus six jurors will be taken to their homes where they will pack for a trial expected lo lasl three or four monlhs. The jurors will be sequeslcrcd over the weekend and for the length of the trial in a motel near the U.S. Districl Sirica's with the his decision to hold court Mon- Courthouse. impatience to get on trial is indicated by day, which is Columbus and a federal holiday. Day . The five Nixon subordinates on trial in the conspiracy case are former presidential aides H.R. Haldeman and John D. Ehrlichman; former Atty. Gen. John N. Mitchell; and two former officials of the 1972 Nixon re-election committee, Robert C. Mardian and Kenneth W. Parkinson.
