Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - August 20, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Weather- Chance of rain tonight and Wednesday. Low tonight, 65 to 70. Highs Wednesday, 85 to 90. WI. VOLUME 92 —NUMBER 223 CITY FINAL 15 CENTS CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA. TUESDAY, AUGUST 20, 1971 ASSOCIATED PRESS, UPI, NEW YORK TIMES 3 Sought In Slaying Of Envoy By Associated Press Warrants were issued in Nicosia Tuesday for the arrest of three persons in connection with the slaying of the U. S. ambassador to Cyprus, Rodger Davies. Davies was killed during an anti-American riot at the embassy in Nicosia on Monday, and Greek, Turkish and Cypriot leaders expressed shock and abhorrence over the slaying. The names of the three suspects and further details of the police investigation into the riot were not disclosed in an official Greek Cypriot government statement, announcing the issue of the warrants. Diplomatic sources in Nicosia, contending Davies was deliberately assassinated, said all of the 40 or more shots fired at the building were aimed either at Davies’ office or his apartment. The sources said at least two gunmen were involved and that they used military weapons. They said they believed the arms may have been Soviet-made AK-47 automatic rifles. These are the weapons issued to the Greek Cypriot national guardsmen. U. S. sources in Nicosia said the embassy might be closed temporarily, and an official said unessential files were being burned “to make the job quicker if we decide to go.” But there was no indication from the state department in Washington of any such action. Lindsay Grant, the embassy's second in command, was flown from a vacation in Scotland to replace Davies. There were these other developments in the Cyprus situation: The British government in London announced it began a new initiative toward resuming Cyprus peace talks by sounding out the possibilities for com promise with Cyprus President Glafcos derides. It said similar diplomatic contacts were planned with Foreign Ministers George Mavros of Greece and Turan Gunes of Turkey, and Rauf Denktash, t h e Turkish I Indictments Of Officers Are Upheld By Roland Krekcler Motions to set aside indictments against five suspended Cedar Rapids police officers and one former officer have been overruled by Linn District Judge William Eads. In a ruling Tuesday the judge noted a difference between the grand jury status in these cases and the status in a 1971 decision of the Iowa supreme court. In the previous case, he said, the high court said the grand jury could not be extended into another year because the personnel of the grand jury were ineligible to serve beyond that calendar year, and therefore the grand jury was composed of illegal jurors. “All for 1974*’ In the case at hand, he said, grand jurors were all jurors for 1974. He said it would “be contrary to the spirit of the unified court system and the modern desire to have substance prevail over form to hold a grand jury must end whether it has completed its business or not on the last day of the term. . . In the words of current diplomatic language, this court will ‘tilt’ for common sense.” Defendants Indicted for alleged perjury and obstruction of justice in an alleged conspiracy to injure the reputations of other officers are Public Safety Commissioner James Steinbeck, a former detective, and Wallace Johnson, Robert Manchester, Darwin New Yorker Picked For Vice presidency —AP Wirephoto President Ford Introduces Nelson Rockefeller as His Choice for Vice-president Rocky: Still Zestful Figure at 66 ALBANY (AP) — “The vice-! his tenure in the vice-presidency run, his vice-pre^dent would be president is standby equip-'an interesting one.    the    likeliest candidate.

Rockefeller entered New York politics in 1956, as chairman of a commission considering revisions in the state constitution. In 1958, when he seemed eager to run against popular Democratic Gov. Averell Harriman in what was deemed a bad year for Republicans nationally, t h e state G.O.P. leaders decided to give him a chance. Folksy Campaigner Rockefeller, one of the world’s WASHINGTON (AP) - President Ford Tuesday nominated Nelson Rockefeller to be vicepresident, saying the former New York governor will “make a good partner.” The choice is subject to congressional approval, a virtual certainty. Rockefeller said he was deeply honored at the call to serve Ford and “through him all the people of this great country.” Ford said he was confident Rockefeller will be approved by the required majorities in the house and senate. “I wouldn’t have picked someone who wouldn’t be,” the President said. Future Uncertain Ford presented Rockefeller in a nationally televised, Oval office ceremony. Then he took his chosen partner to the White House press room, where Rockefeller, answering questions, said he assumes Ford will be a candidate for election to the presidency in 1976. Rockefeller, 66, said he h a d not discussed the political future with Ford. Asked who he thought would be on the ticket with Ford in 1976, Rockefeller replied: “You’re way down the road ahead of me.” Formally announcing the nomination, Ford said Rockefeller will be “a good partner for me and I think a good partner for our country and the world.” Then, in the press room, he added: “I think he’ll make a great teammate. I think he will be good for the country. I think he’ll be good for the world and I’m looking forward to working with him.” Tough Call Ford said he made the choice “after a great deal of soul searching,” after considering the advice of members of congress and Republican leaders around the country. “It was a tough call for a tough job,” Ford said.

Describing the selection process, Ford said he had considered men — he hastily added women were considered too — in and out of government. “But after a long and very thoughtful process, I have made the choice and that choice is Nelson Rockefeller of New York state,” he said. “Serious Times” It was only last October that Ford himself was nominated for the vice-presidency by Nixon, under the then-untested procedures of the 25th Amendment to the Constitution. Rockefeller, at Ford’s side in the Oval office, said he came to the job in “very serious times,” requiring the closest cooperation between congress and the White House. “They also require the dedication of every American to our common national    interest,” Rockefeller said.    He said Ford’s dedication and openness already have “reawakened faith and hope” in America. Rockefeller said    Americans have the will, determination and ability “to overcome the hard realities of our times.” “I’m optimistic about the longterm future,” Rockefeller said. With that, congressional leaders and the cabinet, assembled for the nationally televised announcement, applauded the new vice-president-dcsignatc. On Wealth At his brief news conference, Rockefeller, a member of one of the nation’s wealthiest families, fended off questions about his personal finances, but said he will make whatever disclosures are required in the congressional confirmation process. He refused to divulge his net worth at the news conference, bluntly telling questioners: “You’re not the committee of congress.” I will do two things,” he said. “I will conform totally with whatever the law requires arid I will answer any questions members of congress feel appropriate.” As for his vast holdings, he said he assumed they would be (placed in trust. Subordinate Role Rockefeller seemed at pains to emphasize that he would play a distinctly subordinate role in the vice-presidency. Some had speculated that the stature and manner of a Rockefeller might cut into the Ford limelight.
