CITY FINAL 15 CENTS VOLUME 92 - NUMBER 274 CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA, THURSDAY, OCTOBER IO. 1974 ASSOCIATED PRESS, UPI, NEW YORK TIMES G.O.P. HOPEFULS RAP SURTAX Jury-Pick Shift Due To Pardon WASHINGTON (AP) - U. S. District judge John Sirica changed the final stage of the Watergate cover-up jury selection process Thursday to lessen the chance that the five defendants will have an unfair advantage. Sirica acted after the prosecutor expressed fears the defense could stack the jury with people who believed President Nixon’s pardon made it unfair to prosecute the defendants, three of whom were Nixon’s closest aides. The judge instituted a mathematical system for peremptory challenges — the procedure where attorneys for each side can dismiss a prospective juror without stating a cause. Under the new system, the defense will have two consecutive strikes to each one for the government. Eighth Day The judge and lawyers were| closeted in Sirica’s courtroom for the eighth day, sifting I through a large pool of jury! prospects to find the panel of about 50 from which the 12 j jurors and six alternates will be1 chosen.
