Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, December 11, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 9 ROCKEFELLER Rocky halfway there WASHINGTON (AP) The Senate voted 90 to 7 Tuesday to confirm Nelson Rockefeller as the 41st vice-president of the United States The vote completed the first half of the procedure set down un- der the 25th Amend- ment to the Constitution to fill vice-presidential vacancies. Next is a vote by the House of Representatives, ex- pected next week. If confirmed by the House, Rockefeller, 66, a former New York governor, will become the second vice- president in U.S. history to be chosen outside the normal election process. The first was Gerald Ford, who became president on the resignation of Richard Nixon and in turn nominated Rockefeller last Aug. 20. House Speaker Carl Albert told reporters that it is his impression that Rockefeller will be confirmed. Peter Rodino (Dem. House judiciary committee chairman, said his committee will meet Thursday and con- sider putting the nomination up for final approval in the full House next week. Rockefeller, notified in New York, remarked to a senator- "Vice- president half-designate is what I am at the moment." President Ford, also in New York, said he was gratified at the Senate action. "I trust that similar action will be taken as rapidly as possible by the House of Represen- tatives before final ad- journment of the 93rd Ford said. "Gov. Rockefeller would then be able to put his experience and energy to work for all the people." Opposing Rockefeller in the Senate were four senators generally regarded as liberals and three generally regard- ed as conservatives Republicans against the nomination included Senators Barry Goldwater of Arizona, William Scott of Virginia, and Jesse Helms of North Carolina. The Democrats were Senators Birch Bayh of InJiana, James Abourezk of South Dakota, Howard Metzenbaum of Ohio and Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin. Nelson and Bayh told the Senate they would vote against ,the nomination because CHRISTMAS flic; New York governor lacks good judgment and is not sensitive to the great influence represented by his family's wealth. Helms based his ob- jections on Rockefeller's gifts and loans, Rockefeller's role in financing a political book and what he said was Rockefeller's use of his family fortune for political purposes.
