FHS Student To March In Macy's Thanksgiving Parade PREPARE FOR UNITED FUND DRIVE .. .(I.' to r.) Pope, Dr. Bishop and Collier United Fund Drive At University To Begin Thursday; Goal $11,500 Plans for the 1974 University of Arkansas United Fund Drive were completed Monday by Dr. Charles Bishop, President of the University of Arkansas, Royal Pope, Chairman of the University of Arkansas United Fund Byrd Hopes Fears Will Be Allayed WASHINGTON (AP) -- A key Democratic senator says he hopes Nelson A. Rockefeller's confirmation hearings will ease public fears that "big business, big oil and big banks will benefit" from the elevation of the wealthy New Yorker to the vice presidency. Though such fears may not be totally erased, Sen. Robert C. Byrd of West Virginia said in an interview, he thinks the American people should be reassured by "the tremendous experience and knowledge" Rockefeller would bring to the vice presidency. Both Sen. Howard W. Cannon, D-Nev., chairman of the Rules Committee, and Byrd, member of the panel, said they saw little obstacle to confirmation of the former New York governor, based on 'Monday's opening day of hearings. Rockefeller returns today for more questioning by the nine Rules Committee members. On Monday they asked Rockefeller about matters ranging from his personal and family finances to his approval of New York's law. LACKS DRAMA The day's questioning lacked the drama and tension of prior events in the vast Senate Caucus Room, such as last summer's Watergate hearings, or the Rules panel's sessions a year ago at which President Ford was approved for the vice presidency. Even Rockefeller's vast financial holdings underwent few detailed questions as he repeatedly insisted his family's economic power is overrated and that his own acts are not influenced by his financial holdings. "If I had spent a lifetime abusing economic power I assume I would not he sitting here today," Rockefeller said. About the only cloud on Rockefeller's generally bright horizon was questioning about his role in a 1972 effort for renegotiating of a controversial Navy contract for F14 fighters being manufactured by the Grumman Aircraft Corp. on New York's "Long Island. LETTER DISCUSSED Cannon asked Rockefeller about a July 8, 1972, letter to key officials of the Committee for the Re-election of the Presi dent, Clark MacGregor and John N. Mitchell, and to White House aide John D. Ehrlichman, and a memo suggesting a phone call to then Vice Presi dent Spiro T. Agnew. "As governor of the stale ol New York, I always tried to · represent the best interests ol my constituents," Rockefeller said. But he made clear that as vice president he would do nothing to favor New York over other states. After the hearing, Cannon said the use of influence in be half of contracts is something "done every day," adding he only wanted to make sure Rockefeller wouldn't continue to favor New York interests. Asked the prospects for Rock efeller's confirmation, he sai that "outside of that, I see no problem." Asked If Rockefeller was i shoo-in for confirmation, Byrd replied "I wouldn't say he is a shoo-in. But as of now, he looks good."

Bumpers Sees Party Race As 'Wide Open' LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- Gov. iale Bumpers said Monday hat he admired Sen. Edward il. Kennedy, D-Mass., for placing family considerations ver any political aspirations e had." Bumpers said that Kennedy's ecision not to seek the 1976 emocratic presidential nomi- ation had thrown the race ide open. He said he thought the presi- ency has a "tendency to be ery destructive to the family nit. "I had always felt that if Sentor Kennedy did seek the nom- nation, he would start out the ost viable candidate," Bump- rs said. "It would have been ery difficult for any other can- idate to have caught up." Bumpers said he didn't know ·hat potential Democratic can- idales would benefit most ·om Kennedy's withdrawal ut he mentioned the names ol ens. Henry M. Jackson of Vashington, Walter F. Mondale f Minnesota and Lloyd Benten of Texas.

Economists List 22 Legislative Proposals NEW YORK (AP). -- Twenty- one economists have endorsed a package of 22 proposed legis- ative items aimed at eliminat- ng some government quotas and stimulating competition within certain industries. With a few reservations and exceptions duly noted, the economists signed a resolution supporting the legislative package at a day-long .conference on Monday in · preparation for President Ford's economic summit conference in Washing- ion on Friday and Saturday. The action was the nearest .hing to a consensus on anti-in- "lation measures discussed at ,he presummit meeting. But -wo other economists in'attend- ince, J. Kenneth Galbraith of Harvard University and Nat "oldfinger of the AFL-CIO, re- 'ujsed to sign the resolution, They said the proposals were "irrelevant" to fighting inflation. The 22-item package, proposed by Thomas Moore of 1he Hoover Institution, included: --Repealof the meat import act. --Repeal of import quotas oh dairy and other farm products. --Reduction or elimination ol entry barriers into trucking. --Allowing licensed airline: to operate in any market, and permitting them to withdraw from unprofitable or undesired markets, --Prohibiting resale price maintenance to encourage "competition at the retail level. Alan Greenspan, President Ford's chief economic adviser, said the participants in the conference had been chosen because of their varying opinions and a consensus was not expected -to result from the dis cussions. Greenspan, tlie conference moderator, said the discussions had helped narrow the' areas from which specific monetary and fiscal decisions would be made.
