"President Ford has advised me that former Gov. Rockefeller has been and remains under consideration for the vice-presi- dential White House Press Secretary Jerald terHorst said after emerging from an Oval office meeting. TerHorst's statement came after a series of developments and White House disclosures that led to speculation Rocke- feller had little chance of getting the nomination. Meanwhile, two The sources mentioned these other names as front runners- NATO Ambassador Donald Rumsfeld, Washington state Gov. Daniel Evans, Sen. Weicker of Connecticut and two Tennes- see senators, Howard Baker and Bill Brock. Anderson Column Here was the sequence of events: Columnist Jack Anderson re- ported last week that seven cartons of material once be- longing to Watergate conspirator E. Howard Hunt had been copied before being destroyed, and that the documents contained allega- tions that Rockefeller had hired thugs to disrupt the 1972 Demo- cratic national convention and tilt the nomination toward Sen. George McGovern. TerHorst began receiving press inquiries about the Anderson column. At about a.m. CDT Satur- day, he summoned two news service reporters to his office to respond to the inquiries. He said that Philip Budien, a long-time Ford friend and ad- viser, was contacted early Sun- day, Aug. 11 by a man who identified himself only as "Mr. Long."

The regulars wanted lo restrict this affirmative action require- ment to the national convention delegate selection process, com- plaining that the broader provi- ing considered for vice-presi- dent. TerHorst said Buchen assigned another attorney on Ford's transition staff to look into the information. This attorney con- cluded by late Sunday that the Hunt papers may indeed have been copied at a Washington photocopying firm, terHorst said. Buchen then reported to Ford on the situation, terHorst said, and Ford directed him to turn "everything he had over to Leon the Watergate spe- cial prosecutor.

Informed of the hiring poli- cies, a senior justice depart- ment official termed it "the most, incredible, grossest ex- ample of overt discrimination' he had seen.

When asked about the work rorms, most of the senior assis- tants who had called in the orders said they knew nothing of such discriminatory prefer- ences.

Turkish Defense Minister Ha- san Esat Isik told newsmen in Ankara that the Turkish invasion force, which sliced off a third of the island in a three-day offensive ending Friday, "will fully abide by the United Nations cease-fire." But the Greek Cypriot-domi- nated Cyprus government listed 12 separate Turkish truce vio- ations across the island and said President Glafkos Cleridos had made "strong representa- tions" to the U. N. in protest.

Authorities said it may ave been the wrcrk of Isaac Rasim, the so-called "alphabet lomber." Fire Capt. Bill Wedgeworth said "it looks like a bomb. We can't say definitely but it looks like a bomb." The explosion occurred in an industrial warehouse zone on :he east side of the downtown area. There were no immediate reports of any deaths. The fire department said four persons were known injured. "It's supposed to have cleared a city a police desk of- ficer said. He said it could have been Rasim's work because, "according to his statements-, his next bombing would begin with the letter 'I' and the site of the explosion was an industrial area." "We have a 500-foot-by-500- foot building completely wiped out. Four buildings in the imme- diate area are on a fire spokesman said. "Giant Ball of Fire" A fire department spokesman described the explosion as "a giant ball of fire as big as a 10- story building." Mike Martin, 31, was driving a truck two blocks away. He said, "it shattered all the win- dows and shook like somebody dropped a bomb next to you." A witness at the Los Angeles Coliseum, where a National Football League game-was be- ing played, described the explo- sion as "gigantic." "It looked like a miniature atomic he said. "We saw the explosion then, seconds later, heard it. It was spectacu- lar." The coliseum is about six mites from where police located the blast. Looting Looting was reported in the area following the blast. "Loot- ing is a major problem at this a police spokesman said.
