In previous Public statements Meany shied away from saying whether Nixon should be impeached or should resign because of watergate. But this time he said any Defiance of the supreme court by the president a would create a chaotic condition Andi i think the Congress will have to impeach because of the watergate affair he said a unless there is some change we now have a president that the american people by and Large have lost Confidence but he said he did no to expect Nixon to resign unless his fellow republicans urged him to. Meany said the Senate watergate hearings had led him to conclude that Congress should pass a Reform Law limiting political spending and contributions. A what these people were doing was he said of Nixon Campaign solicitors likening their activities to the old Protection Racket. A the morals of this committee to re elect were not any Tetter than the morals of the gangsters a he said.

Turn to Page 4-a, column 1 opinions differ on growth of Colorado Springs editors note following is an a r t i e i e examining the past growth in Colorado Springs. A sequel concerning future growth will appear in next sundays edition of the Gazette Telegraph. By Linda Duval Gazette Telegraph staff writer growth was not always a four letter word. At one time a City was extremely proud to change its population sign upwards and panicked if there was no change to be made. Colorado Springs was founded in 1871 by Gen. William j. Palmer when to purchased 10,-000 acres of land at the foot of pikes Peak and planned his City. For years the City had an even growth growing from 4,-226 in 1880 to 29,078 in 1910, to 45.472 in 1950. But in the decade Between 1950 and 1960, the growth skyrocketed to Over 82.000 in 1960. At that time mayor William Henderson predicted that the City a growth would double by 1970. To at least 170,000. A everybody thought i was off my Rocker Quot says Henderson today. But he was right. He also qualified his statement saying that population could increase Only if there was enough water. He was right again. A Hie City had to acquire Blue River Fry Ark and Home stake water to get where it is today. It has been estimated that with these resources and other water for which there is at least a verbal commitment the City j can grow to 400,000 people. Henderson says that a the figure is reasonable in an average or above average water production year but it would be More realistic to evaluate it on the basis of How much water could be produced in a dry utilities director Jim Phillips told the Gazette Telegraph last week that he thinks the figure is too High and that a revised figure is in the Hopper now. Today a population is somewhere around 180.000 and growing daily. The current growth rate has been estimated anywhere Between four and 13 per cent. The most commonly quoted figure is about 64 or seven per cent. In february however an economic development report prepared by Leland Smith of the chamber of Commerce had this to say about the growth rate Quot recent controversy about population growth in tile Colorado Springs area has produced a flood of predictions about the terrible future we face if controls Are not imposed. One prognosticator even went so far As to suggest recently that in a few generations All the people in the entire world will be living in Colorado Springs if action is not taken to prevent it a most of these dire predictions have been based upon simple extrapolations of the various statistics being used As measures of past and present annual growth rate. It is easy to View the situation with alarm when it is realized that a growth rate of seven per cent will double the population every to years. A common sense does not support this. While statistics can be manipulated to prove virtually much misinformation confuses the situation said the report and is a misuse of accurate information. Using . Census Bureau figures and w orking out a simple mathematical formula plus discounting the fairly stable military Factor the figure translates into a compounded annual growth less than v per cent. The report continues a it is significant to note that the 44 per cent growth rate has been consistent with the rate of employment in the area. If we had been growing As fast As some people Are claiming there would have been a substantial Rise in the unemployment statistics. The fact that unemployment has remained Low verifies that the growth figures have been the rapid growth of housing in the City often serves As a Point in favor of those who argue that the City is virtually overflowing with people. However the report says the hous ing built in the nation during 1972 reflected an increase of 15 to 19 per cent and ran close to 25 per cent for 1971, and a it is reasonable to expect that we shared in this the report concludes that a better formula for estimating population growth is needed. The chamber of Commerce is planning to explore the problem to find a reliable formula to be used. Many people in the City do not object to growth per seas much As the Lack of Quality exhibited in that growth and tile problems it creates. Councilman Michael Bird. It Hen president of citizens lobby for sensible growth said in november 1972 that the a threats emanating from satellite development Quot have teen Over a not All past developments in the City have reflected Superior planning and execution a he charged. Quot nor have All past developments outside the City reflected the opposite tendency. Since some fringe area development will continue to occur outside of the City limits no matter where the City boundaries Are drawn we recommend that the energies and re sources of the City be focused on the area within its current Bird urged Quality growth planned growth and a sound annexation policy As Well As a comprehensive plan during his Campaign. So did councilman Fred Sondermann. Both were elected and both have stated that this was a charge from the citizens of the Community to do just that. Janice Blakely current president of citizens lobby said aug. 9 in a statement to the press a has this Community grown beyond our present capacity to manage the answer today is a yes it we Are behind in the provision of police Protection file Protection Street Light i n Street paving general maintenance and repair of streets drainage development of Parks sewage disposal solid waste disposal traffic control system schools and More. Does a reasonable person keep putting new additions on an anti qua ted building without thought for the Basic building that is exactly what we have been doing in Colorado Springs for the last 20 we have Over taxed our Gas Supply she said and electrical Power is predicted to be the1, next crisis. A we have not been acting in a reasonable and prudent manner. But rather we have acted like children wolfing Down an entire cake with no thought of either the consequences to their j stomachs or to the needs of she said. A in effect a said mrs. Blakely a we ask All citizens of the pikes Peak Region to hold a Mirror up to what we Are to consider what we want to Broun Mayall president of i the Springs area Beautiful association Saba told the Gazette Telegraph this week a obviously we can no longer sus Tain the runaway growth of the past decade. People have become disenchanted with growth for growth a Sake. People Are deeply concerned with maintaining the Quality of life that brought so Many of us to this Region. A there can and must be growth control. Environmental goals and economic forces must be reconciled a Job that requires both dedication and reason not a cutting Edge. A your ability to implement Wise but controlled growth depends on our citizens willingness to Roll up their sleeves and pitch in at the local level. Titis is happening today and i predict that it will continue at an accelerated one who has been around during the mushrooming of the City Dick Noyes owner of Chinook Book shop says that when he came Here in 1958, Quot it was the Tail end of the old a it was very obvious that Colorado Springs was starting to really grow Al a says a but no turn to pugs 4-a, column 2 a a social brought in social
