   Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - October 12, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa                                Weaiher- and colder tonight. JUws In 20s lo Highs Sunday in (ills. VOLUME 92 NUMBER 276 CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 12, 1374 CITY FINAL 15 CENTS ASSOCIATED PRESS, UI'I, NEW YOHK TIMES Turkish Aid WASHINGTON (AP) Congress has put off its cam- paign recess for a week to act on President Ford's promised veto of its cutoff of U.S. military aid to Turkey. Senate and house leaders can- celed plans to start the month-; long recess Friday night after the house killed a CO-day delay of the cutoff. The administration had said passage of the delay would have avoided a veto. Democratic leader O'Neil (Mass.) told the house Ford's veto "is expected sometime over the weekend" and an- nounced the house would recon- vene Tuesday. The senate is to act Wednesday. the White House, however, spokesman Larry Speakes said Ford does not intend to act on the bill over the weekend. Speakes said he had no immedi- ate guidance on when the Pres- ident may act. "Won't Back Down" The White House announced Tuesday that Ford would veto the Turkish aid ban if no com- promise could be reached and his press secretary, Ron Nessen, said Friday, "I can assure you he is not going to back down." The resolution enacted by congress would halt all U.S. aid shipments lo Turkey unlil Ford could certify "substantial progress" toward an agreement on withdrawing Turkish troops from Cyprus and could certify Turkey is not in violation of U.S. foreign aid laws. Some opponents of the aid say Ford could not certify Turkey's compliance at all because of her use of U.S. aid weapons to in- vade Cyprus. Others contend she would not be in compliance until 'her forces are withdrawn from Cyprus. The state depart- ment has refused to say what would constitute compliance. Stopgap Resolution Congress' aid cutoff is on a stopgap continuing resolution authorizing foreign aid, housing, welfare, health and education programs to continue spending until congress approves their regular appropriations bills. Legal spending authority for (he programs expired Sept. 30 and congress could not leave them legally broke until after Ihe Nov. 5 elections, when it is to return from its recess. Say Mexico Strikes Rich Oil Deposits WASHINGTON (AP) Mex- ico apparently has struck rich oil formations in land along the Gulf of Mexico, (he Washington Post said today. j It said an American oil com- pany geologist who has been an- alyzing industry intelligence about the find described it as "exciting enough to be another Persian Gulf of petroleum." President Ford is expected lo discuss additional petroleum shipments when he meets with Mexican President Echeverria Oct. 21, although state depart- ment officials say !his was not the reason for setting up the meeting in the first place, the Post said. The newspaper said the dis- covery was in the states ol Tabasco and Chiapas, some 80C miles south of Houston. It said preliminary estimates place Ihe potential yield at up to 20 billion barrels of high grade oil dou- ble the amount believed to be under Alaska's North Slope. U.S. experts, the newspaper said, estimate that Mexico could boost its oil exports from barrels a day in 1975 to almost two million a day by 1980. The U.S. now imports about six million barrels a day, much of it from Arab sources in the Persian Gulf area. Mexico nationalized oil opera- lions some time ago. A govern- ment corporation known as Pe- troleos Mexicanos, or PEMEX, directs the industry. The Post said PEMEX discovered the de- posits by drilling deeper in olc ground thai had proved dry in previous drilling. MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) Three black men surrendered Saturday after a shooting that took the life of a retired police officer, authorities said. The trio had commandeered a radio station for more than two hours with the cry "Unity is now." The victim had been working as a security guard at a store near the station building. Dozens of police, crouching behind squad cars and training guns on the building, had cor- doned off several blocks.

Wilbur Mills' opponent in the November elections, refuses to comment on what she calls his "unfortunate personal problem." "Another Cover-up" Mills' Pastor Says LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) a goner. 1 don't think it The manner in which reports of a Washington auto incident in- volving Rep. Wilbur Mills were handled may be more politically damaging to the 3G-ycar-veteran congressman than the incident itself, according to some of his associates. "It's kind of, lo me, like an- other cover-up, I guess you could say. So I think what I needed lo be fatal but he al- lowed it to be fatal. You don't disappear for four days with no explanation." The Arkansas Democrat, the slate's second largest per, called Mills' Thursday ex- planation "late and .skimpy." But it said in an editorial that nearly everyone has done "things he was nol proud of" and the dala was too thin to would hope Mr. Wilbur Mills jt fajr crucify would do is come forth and be iioncsl with the people. "I think this is what we need in our government and that's ny biggest objection to this whole thing that's said the Rev. Keith Goza, pastor of Ihe Arkansas Democrat's ho- netown church, the First Meth- odist church in Kcnsctt. In Washington, Rep. Ashley (D-Ohio) said of Mills, "I think Boiling Order Off, but I Bacteria Cause Sought Buchanan Exit At White House trick Buchanan, a speechwriter and special consultant to former President Nixon, will be leaving his White House job Nov. 15.

Mills' Republican opponent, Judy Petty of Little Rock, said she will not raise the incident in her campaign. She called the in- cident a personal matter but said it might reinforce voter sentiment for change. Rep. Alexander (D-Ark.) said he thought the incident was a "set up affair" with political overtones and a personal trage- dy for Mills. House Minority Leader Rhodes (R-Ariz.) said reaction in congress "has been one of sorrow." He said "no member of congress is happy about it, but I do think il will al'fecl his chances for being re-elected." Crash Fatal to N. I. Woman Cedar Rapids Hazel C. Becker, 83, of Long Valley, N. J., died Friday of in- juries suffered when the car she was riding in struck another car and hit a building in down- lown Cedar Rapids. Mrs. Becker died at St. Luke's lospital after the accidenl at p.m. Friday in fronl of 309 Fifth avenue SE. Police said the victim was a lasscnger in a car driven by George Krug, 81, of Atkins. According to reports, Krug was backing from a driveway next to the Iowa stale liquor slore, 309 Fifth avenue SE, when Hie accelerator stuck. The car crossed Fifth avenue, striking a tree.

This manner of determining where the problem is located was agreed upon during a three- hour session in Marion city hall. Officials determined immedi- ately that the bacteria in the city's water was not caused by a sewage problem. For that reason, the boiling order was lifted. The water department will operate its No. 4 well only for the two-week period. The 20 samples to be taken each day is the normal quota for a month. School Samples The seven elementary schools within Ihe city limits, six in the Marion Independent and one in the Linn-Mar, will he sampled daily along with 13 taken at rail- cm.

He also said he had oulsland- ng loans totaling (0 three of the 18. Rockefeller had prevously dis- closed gifts and loans to five of the 18, including a gift of n 1969 to Henry Kissinger, now secretary of stale. Rockefeller said he made the 'ull list public because confiden- tial information he submitled to congress and the executive branch was being "leaked piece- meal to the press, causing the compromising of the privacy of many individuals and mislead- ng interpretations of the facts'" Taxes He said all the gifts had been 'fully reported as required by he Internal Revenue Code" and ic had paid a total of in federal and state taxes on them. Thc gift-giving was detailed rriday night in response to a from Chairman Cannon (D-Nev.) of Ihe senate rules committee, which is investigat- ng Rockefeller's qualifications 'or Ihe vice-presidency. The Washinglon Post said Sat- urday thai in his tax returns Rockefeller also reported a gift to Joan Bradcn, wife of a syndicated newspaper col- umnist, Thomas Braden. She was not mentioned in the lisl of gift recipients issued by Rockefeller. Congressional sources said re- ports of the gifts prompted house judiciary subcommittee lo request renewal of an FBI in- quiry into Rockefeller's aclivi- lics to answer questions not cov ercd in initial FBI invcsligatior reports. "Chances Good" Senator Allen a rules committee member said: "I think chances are good the committee will reopen hearings on the nomination after the con- gressional recess. He's been called on to explain Ihe gifls and we'll have to see what he says." Rockefeller said his generosi- ly ranged from providing for an investment, to giving relocation aid for a sought-after official to lake a job in New York, to straightfor- ward gifts of respect, admira- lion and friendship. In a Idler to Cannon, he said all recipients were "admini- stratively responsible to me all operated in a framework of policy established by me as gov- ernor. "We had identical objectives. There was no conflict of interest nvolvcd and there was nothing llegal or immoral about either the gifts or the loans." Human Needs "Throughout my life I have made loans and gifls to friends and associates to assist them in meeting the kind of pressing 'human needs which all people have from time to time prob- lems such as severe illness and meeting one's obligations to aged parents, and problems that have to be faced after retire- ment." Rockefeller said six persons not categorized as public of- ficials or members of his staff were also listed on gift tax re- turns from 1967 to 1974. He said among them was former U. S. Attorney General John Mitchell, who was loaned a J. B. Stearns oil painting in 1971 "lo hang in the conference room of the justice department." Roc- kefeller said the painting was returned in 1972. "This transaction was inad- vertently reported by my ac- countant as a gift of which has been I Rockefeller said.

In a Iclter lo Attorney General Saxbc, he said: "The bulk of the work entrust- ed to the care of this office hav- ng been discharged, I am con- 'iclent that such of our responsi- jililies as remain unfulfilled can well be completed under the eadcrship of another special prosecutor."

Ford approved legislation that establishes an Energy Research and Development Administra- tion to place under one roof (he energy research activilies of the AEC, the interior department, he Environmental Protection Agency and the National Science Foundation.

The reorganization of energy programs is a major ,tcp toward the administration l of creating a department of Leon Jaworski Icnge to the pardon granted Nixon by President Ford. "For me lo procure an indict- ment of Richard M. Nixon for the sole purpose of generating a purported court test on the le- gality of the pardon, would con- stitute a spurious proceeding in which I had no faith; in fact il would be tantamount to unpro- fessional conduct and violative of my responsibility as prosecu- tor and officer of the he wrote.

Recommends Rulh Texas lawyer recom- mended to Saxbe that Henry Ruth, deputy special prosecutor, be named lo succeed him. Jaworski was named special prosecutor Nov. 1, 1973, the same day Nixon appointed Saxbc attorney general to suc- ceed Elliot Richardson. Richardson had r e s i g n e d rather than comply with Nixon's order lo lire Archibald Cox as special prosecutor. On Nixon's order, Solicitor General Robert Bork as acting attorney general then fired Cox on Del. 20, 1973. Jaworski's resignation came the day after a jury was scaled in the trial of five former Nixon administration and campaign aides charged with conspiring to block the Watergate brcakin in- vestigation.
