VOLUME 92 - NUM BISK 314 rn '4&®t iUtttUfo (Dinette CITY FINAL 15 CENTS CEDAR RAPIDS. IOWA, TUESDAY. NOVEMBER 19, 1974 ASSOCIATED PRESS, UPI. NEW YORK TIMES ARABS SIEGE 8 of 9 on Senate Unit For Rocky WASHINGTON (AP) - Eight of tho nine senate rules committee members have indicated they intend to recommend that the senate confirm Nelson Rockefeller as vice-president. The committee ended its hearings Monday and is expected to vote by the end of the week. Chairman Cannon (D-Nev.) said it will meet Wednesday to discuss its recommendation. The house judiciary committee begins hearings on the nomination Thursday. Of the senate committee’s four Republicans and five Democrats, only Sen. Allen (D-Ala.) said he had not made up his mind how to vote. He said his indecision was based on philosophical questions rather than any qualms about Rockefeller’s ethics. “Only Thing” ‘‘The only thing holding me back is my disapproval of his big-government philosophy: tax and spend,” Allen said. Cannon and Sen. Byrd (D-W. Va.), said they expect to give Rockefeller the benefit of any doubts they have and to vote to recommend confirmation. Cannon said the committee will probably not be able to issue its written report before next Tuesday. That timing will probably make it almost impossible for the full senate to act before leaving on its brief Thanksgiving recess. “I don’t know of any senator who would want to vote without1 reading our report,” Cannon said. Senate Democratic Leader Mansfield (Mont.) had said he would try to get a senate vote next week if the committee reported the nomination this week President Ford and other leading Republicans have criticized the delay in confirmation. Byrd View Cannon and other Democrats have said it was essential to take a close look at loans and gifts by Rockefeller to friends and political associates. Byrri, who has been Rockefeller’s most persistent questioner, said Monday he believes some of the gifts and interest-free loans to public officials in New York almost — but not quite — crossed the line into illegality. He told William Ronan that the facts surrounding $625,000 in Rockefeller loans and gifts to him come close to violating the letter of the New York bribery statute. However, the law requires proof that a gift was “ intended to influence the office-holder in the performance of his official duty, Byrd said Three Israelis Held In Building Are Slain HEIT SHEAN, Israel (UPI) — jheld with the guerillas inside Israeli soldiers stormed a small I building even though they apartment house in the    frontier!    we,’r quipped    with a    loud- town of Beit Shean Tuesday I'SP!“er I , i*ii j    ...

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) City officials are trying to determine how a former convict, currently under indictment for three murders hut free on bond, got a job with the metropolitan manpower commission. David Roberts, now being held in the county jail for the rape of a 19-year-old woman and tile kidnap-death of her 6-month-old son last week, was hired by the commission as a job placement specialist last month, officials said David Carley, commission administrator, said Roberts began work Oct. 28 and was classified as a very good employe “We didn’t know charges were still pending against him.” Carley said. “We’re trying to determine what has happened, and how he was employed. He is e-Jill on the city payroll, but all indications arc he will be terminated at the end of the week.” It is standard procedure that all prospective city employes are checked out to determine if they have convictions or charges pending, but Carley said this was not done in Roberts’ case. Roberts came to the commission from a work-release program. Carley said hit- salary is $7,696 yearly. Roberts, 30, is held without bond now after being identified by a woman who said she was raped Thursday and locked in the trunk of her car, with her baby abandoned in weeds along a city street. His frozen body was found Friday by a child on the way to school. The case has been continued until Nov. 25. Roberts served six years, in the state reformatory for raping two women who were found locked in car trunks. He was involved in a 1969 reformatory disturbance in which one inmate was killed and 46 were injured. Roberts was indicted March 15 by a grand jury on nine counts of murder in connection with the Jan 20 deaths of Bill Patrick, 26; his wife, 23; and their year-old daughter. Their bodies were found in the ashes of their New Whiteland home, which had been doused with gasoline, then set afire. Patrick wa« the only witness scheduled to testify against Roberts for the theft of four tires from the department store where Patrick worked. Roberts was held until Sept. 17, when officials decided there was insufficient evidence to hold him without bail. He was released on $10,000 bond. He is scheduled for trial May 12. case, commented. adding that the federal marshals were under instructions to eject anyone who laughed during the trial.
