(AP Wirephoto) Hammerschmidt Favors Bush For Vice President : WASHINGTON (AP) -- Rep. John Paul Hammerschmidt. R- Ark., said Thursday that he is promoting George Bush, Republican National party chairman, for the vice presidency. Bush and former New York Gov. Nelson Rockefeller are considered the most likely prospects in President Ford's search for a vice president. Hammerschmidl said he decided to support Bush "in a way with mixed emotions. "I was committed early to Bush, but I am also a friend of Nelson Rockefeller." the congressman said. "I feel even closer to him because of my close associations with his late brother (former Arkansas Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller)." In 1966, Hammerschmidt became the first Republican congressman from Arkansas since Reconstruction. That same year. Winthrop Rockefeller be^ came the state's first Republican governor since 1874. "Really, I didn't feel that Nelson Rockefeller would seek or want that (vice presidential] position," Hammerschmidt said, "but I've explored .that ii: recent days, and my judgmenl now is that he truly woulU wanl to serve...." The congressman noted thai he and Bush arrived at Wash ington about the same trme and became good friends, "It's somewhat paradoxica that the two front runners seem to be Bush and Nelson Rock efeller." he added. "Nelson Rockefeller would be my highly acceptable second choice." Hammerschmidl praisec Bush for being noncontroversia and well liked by both Demo crats and Republicans. He said he proposed Bush fo the vice presidency the da; Ford became the President. Hammerschmidt. ranking Re publican on the House Veteran Affairs Committee, said he ha not discussed the vice presiden cy with Ford but may do when they fly to Chicago Mon day for an appearance at a vet erans' convention. Consumer Group To Challenge Utility LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- Ar kansas Consumer Researc said Thursday that it will cha lenge Arkansas Power Lig! Co.'s authority to pass on t consumers the higher price APL must pay to 'get fuel. ACR made the remarks in request to intervene in APL' application with the Arkansa Public Service Commission fo a §38 million rate increase. The research group said would focus on the utility's re quest for a clause to allow it 1 pass the cost of borrowing mon ey on to consumers if the com pany debt reaches a certai level. Another point ACR asked explore was whether the encrg conservation programs of " utility contribute to excessive growth in the demand for electricity. Arkansas Consumer Research Voluntary Restraints More Than Political Cosmetics By JOHN CtlNNIFF NEW YORK (AP) -- T h e est news that President Ger- Id Ford could receive would e a decrease in the rate of in- ation. That he isn't likely to receive uch news in the next few r eeks is pretty well ; uncler- tood, especially since the mid- ation drought is'likely to push p ' f o o d prices. And so the President, in the bsence of "natural," market- lace restraints on inflation, is lanning a new Cost of Living ask force that he hopes will ;are down big wage, price, rofit and interest increases. The task.force would have no nforcement powers other than loral persuasion, a call to pa- riotism, a plea for patience. nd to some battle-hardened xecutives, landlords and union eaders, these are no restraints t all. Argus Research. Corp., which /holesales economic and mar;et research to many of the big 'SHAN' WILL MOVE TO WHITE HOUSE WASHINGTON (AP) -- WKen he Ford family moves into thi White House, its pet Siamese cat, "Shan," will come along.

Firm Incorporates Articles of incorporation wer filed Wednesday in Washingto County Court for Air, Inc According to the articles In the company will operate air nav [ation facilities. The company's address is 30 larve in Springdale. Tilden said it also wanted to look into APL's billing procedures to see if they are detrimental to the interests of consumers. The operating expenses of APL, according to the re search group, should be examined to determine whether they are appropriate and legitimate expenses for customers to subsidize. The APL application in eludes a proposed increase of 23 per cent in rates for residential customers. ACR said it would try to get the commission to alter APL rates to place a greater share of the rate burden on industrial customers rather than residential customers.

"My gosh, I thought there would be only three or four girls this time," said Chris, 13, who beat out 21 boys and three other girls to qualify for the Akron showdown. . :] Her racer had the longesl name of all in the area- trials here in this Chicago suburb: Womens Liberation .Center .of Evanslon. .
