   Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - August 21, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa                                The Cedar Haplds Gazeltt: Wed., ABE. 21, H7< Slow Changes Are Seen For Ford's Cabinet Ky Martha A'aihi'iglO'i STO' St-fvKi- WASHINCTOX Dimalil Kuiiisfcld, coordinator of President Kurd's transition advisurv team, is the leading candidate to succeed Alex- ander HaiK as White House chief of staff, it has been learned. According to sources in- volved in the transition plan- ning. Ford is "very, very leful" to llaij; for the delicate role he played in persuading Hichanl N'ixon to resign as President and fur llaiy's assis- tance in keeping the executive branch afloat during the tran- sition period. The new President had no "ready chief of staff" when he took office, and will probably keep Ilait; in that post "fur a considerable period of these sources said. 1'ltimalely, however, Ford is expected to name his own chief of staff and the President's closest advisers are recom- mending Rumsfeld. OEO Chief Rumsfeld is currently U.S. ambassador to NATO in Brus- sels. A former Illinois Republican congressman, he was a counselor to the President when he became ambassador to NATO at the start of Nixon's second term. Previously, he had served as director of the Office of Economic Opportunity. He is now coordinating the efforts of a four-man team of- ficially responsible for advis- ing Ford on the transition. One source said Haig had done "a tremendous job" dur- ing the last days of the Nixon administration at "walking the line between loyalty to the President and concern for the country." Haig has been widely credit- ed with convincing Nixon he had no option remaining except to resign after release of tape recordings showing he had been deeply involved in the Watergate cover-up almost from the beginning. Perhaps significantly, Rumsfeld joined Haig at a recent meeting with (he President immediately follow- ing the daily meeting of senior White House staff aides at which Haig presides. It was not immediately clear whether Humsfeld had attend- ed the staff session. Staff Overhaul Ford is giving top priority to an overhaul of the White House staff structure and a review of the decision- making process within the executive branch. Sources said there will be "significant changes in the cabinet" between now and the end of the year, although Ford will not immediately be "turn- ing people out to pasture." Secretary of State Kissinger is the only Nixon holdover viewed as "indispensable" by- Ford, one source said, adding that "at least half" of the cabinet will be probably replaced in the months ahead. One top-level Nixon appoin- tee likely to be eased out fairly fast is Roy Ash, director of the Office of Management and Budget, sources said. Ford is believed anxious to have his own man in charge of OMB as the agency prepares the new federal budget which the President will present to congress early next year. As the transiirri process moved forward, new informa- tion surfaced about the early phases of the planning for the Ford administration. Sources said the first transi- tion steps were taken the day before N'ixon announced his intention to resign. Philip Buchen, Ford's former law partner and possibly his most intimate adviser, summoned a half dozen other close as- sociates to a meeting at Buchen's honif. Attending that first meeting, which lasted from 5 p.m. to midnight, were Bryce Harlow, a Procter and Gamble Co. executive who served as a White House counselor In both Nixon and President Eisenhower; Sen. Griffin (R- assistant Republican leader of the senate and a long-time Ford friend; former Rep. ,lohn Hyrnes (Il-Wis.) another old friend; Clay Whi- lehead, director of the White House Office of Telecom- inimical ions under Nixon, and William WhytP, a U.S. Steel <'orp. executive and personal friend of Ford's. "Official" Team These men were joined dur- ing the course of the meeting by former Pennsylvania Gov. Scranlon the only member of the group now serving on the "official" four-man transition advisory learn. Griffin was assigned to con- tact Chief Justice Burger and him in return from a Kuropean vacation lo lie available to administer the presidential oath of office to Ford However, Kurgrr reached by an aide in Amsterdam refused to head for Washington until he received some olllda! word that Nixon was resigning. Meanwhile, Rumsfeld who was in Paris in his role as am- bassador to NATO decided cm his own initiative to fly back to Washington, sources said.
