Attorney Evan “Curly" Hultman was sworn in Tuesday in Cedar Rapids federal court for a .second four-year term as United States attorney for the northern district of Iowa. T Ii e reappointment would seem to rule out his running for the U.S. senate or the house, of representatives, as has been rumored. i 1 In commenting on the politi-, cal situation. Hultman said. [“Very frankly, I gave it serious consideration. But at this time I ; feel I could serve best as a member of the department of justice." “As important as the law-making function is. I visualized the times and conditions. And I felt that I would be running out on something that is important to the public and to me personally." Hultmans reappointment has been in the process for several months. His name was submitted to President Nixon by then Attorney General Elliot Richardson Senate confirmation was de j layed, however, due to the upheaval brought on by Watergate. Hultman was resubmitted for approval of the President by new Attorney General William Saxbe. and was subsequently confirmed by the senate. In swearing in Hultman. chief judge Edward McManus noted that his “service in this capacity has been most honorable." Hultman, 48. of Waterloo, first took office on Aug I, 1989. He served two terms as Blackhawk county attorney and two terms as Iowa attorney general. In 1984 he was defeated bv Harold Hughes for governor.
