JULY 19, 1974 ASSOCIATED PRESS, UPI, NEW YORK TIMESPOLICE PROBE MOVE STAYED Franco in Transfer Of Power MADRID (UPI) - Ailing Chief of State Francisco Franco Friday temporarily handed over his powers to his designated: successor, Prince Juan Carlos.' t/ie government-controlled Spanish radio network announced. Juan Carlos, 36. will be acting1 chief of state as long as the 81-! year-old Franco is in ill health, the broadcast said. Franco, recovering from a circulatory ailment in a Madrid hospital, suffered a sudden worsening of his condition Friday, his doctors said. Under Constitution . The temporary transfer of power was made under Article ll of the constitution, which says,: “During the absence of the head of state from the national! territory, or in case of ill health, j his functions shall be assumed by the prince of Spain . . . The president of the government (premier) shall give an account to parliament.” Temporary assumption o f power does not mean Juan Carlos, heir to the vacant Spanish throne, already becomes king. He does so only in the event Franco retires, dies or is incapacitated. Franco's doctors said his con-; dition suffered a “deterioration because of gastric complications” Fridav. 112 injured In Railroad Yard Blast Turkish Fleet Puts to Sea Near Cyprus Defendants Claim Jury Not Proper Cedar Rapids Newt— Iowa supreme court Chief a burn about in center 70 miles —AP Wireciioto KEY MEN — James St. Clair, left, President Nixon's lawyer, chats with John Doar, chief counsel to the house judiciary committee which is investigating the possibility of impeachment.
