VOLUME 92 NUMBER 221 mct+e CITY FINAL 15 CENTS CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 21, 1974 ASSOCIATED PRESS, UPI, NEW YORK TIMES Mansfield No Precise' Decision Yet on Runnina Mate RHI' Vows Quick Rocky Vote WASHINGTON (AP) - Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield promised quick action Wednesday on Nelson Rockefeller’s nomination to be vicepresident. “There will be no delay or postponement,” Mansfield told reporters. He said every effort would be made “to get it done before we go out in October.” With overwhelming praise except from some longstanding Republican foes, Rockefeller’s confirmation by congress is virtually assured, but there is some question about how long it w'ill take. Chairmen of both the house and senate committees which will review the nomination have refused to commit themselves to any target date. Keeping “Probably" WASHINGTON (AP) — Pres-1efeller’s statement that he ident Ford declared through a j thought Ford would run in 1976. spokesman Wednesday that he “probably will run” tor the nation’s highest office in 1976.    TerHorst said he had dis- Publicly changing his position cussed the issue with Ford 13 days after assuming    the pres-j Tuesday    night    and    again this idency, Ford    relayed    word of    rooming, his new stance through White "As you know in the pasl House Press    Secretary Jerald    President    Ford    held    the opinion terllorst.    he would not    run,” terHorst { TerHorst said “there is no said. “He is now of the opinion precise agreement” on whether he probably will run in 1976 as- Nelson Rockefeller, nominated by Ford Tuesday to be vicepresident, will be on the 1976 ticket. suming of course he is nomi- j nated by delegates at the Republican national convention.” Responding to other questions, After Election? House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rodino (D-N.J.) suggested again Wednesday that the confirmation would take longer than the two months between now and the Nov. 7 elections. “Whether it’s going to take eight weeks or ten weeks, whatever time it’s going to take, I think the committee will do it as quickly as we possibly can," Rodino said. But Rep. Hutchinson of Michigan, ranking Republican on the judiciary committee, said President Ford’s confirmation as vice-president last year took eight weeks and if Rockefeller’s takes any longer “somebody’s going to be guilty of foot dragging.” Rodino and Hutchinson were interviewed on NBC’s “Today” program Congress plans to meet only about six more weeks between now and November. Congress is scheduled to begin a Labor day recess Thursday and is tentatively scheduled to recess again in October for re-election campaigning. FBI Probe Rodino and Senate Rules Committee Chairman Cannon (D-Nev.) set confirmation machinery, including requests for a full FBI investigation, in motion immediately after President Ford named Rockefeller his nominee. Both chairmen said a major question is how long it will take to investigate Rockefeller’s multimillion dollar financial holdings to see whether there are any conflicts of interest. Rockefeller flew into Washington in his own plane Tuesday morning to accept the nomination. held his first news conference, paid courtesy calls on some congressmen and then flew out to continue a vacation in Maine. Rockefeller’s nomination drew wide-ranging praise from con-, pressmen including Blacki Caucus Chairman Rangel (D-N.Y. >. But it drew disappointment from conservative Repub-1 beans including Sen.

Police and the FBI said Mu-harcm Kurbegovic, 31, was taken into custody on Tuesday night after he planted a tape recording in a trash can in a rest room at a Hollywood takeout restaurant. They said Kurbegovic was the man who identified himself in telephone calls and other tape recordings as “Isaac Rasim,” military leader of an organization he called Aliens of America. The man’s job supervisor said Wednesday that Kurbegovic could not be the talkative bomber because Kurbegovic is a mute, but his landlady said he could speak.
