Pressure mounts against Kennedy bid WASHINGTON -.Ten years after the assassination of President John his Senator Edward is under increasing political and family pressure to forego a 1976 presidential bid. Many United States Democratic leaden would prefer that the Massachusetts senator stay out of a 1976 race they will return their party to White Howe control. They fear the lingering im- pact of the Chappaquiddick in- in which a secretary in Kennedy's car could counteract the gains they ex- pect from voter reaction to the Watergate political es- pionage scandals of the Niion administration. A Kennedy they might create un- necessary division in what most party leaders hope cm be a relatively united Democratic Party. In even before his 12-year-old son's right leg was amputated last week in an ef- fort to arrest bone Kennedy was under strong family pressure to forego a 1976 race.

Mansfield said he feels Kennedy could probably have the party's presidential nomination if he wants it. But it is clear Kennedy would have to battle other Democrats for the nomination. Senators Henry Jackson of Lloyd Bentsen of Walter Gilligan of Ohio and Daniel Walker of Illinois are among many others ex- pressing interest. i ;
