North west Arkansas TIMBS, Tfiurs., OcÂ». 3, 1974 FAYETTEVILLE, ARKANSAS Rockefeller Subs For Ford On Speaking Trip By CARL P. LBUBSDOHF Associated pi'ess Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Nelson A .Rockefeller is tilling in for President Ford at two nonpolitical slops that mark a one- day exception to his inactivity while undergoing congressional confirmation as vice president. Ford asked Rockefeller to take his place Wednesday at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, and before the national UPI Editors conference in San Francisco. Ford's wife, Betty, was operated on last Saturday for breast cancer. Rockefeller's schedule called for him to make the overnight round trip to the Pacific Coast in under 30 hours, leaving Washington at dawn today and returning from San Francisco early Thursday. The decision lo make (he speeches, however, does not signal any change in Rockefeller's plans to avoid political speeches pending confirmation, which is not expected in either the House or the Senate until after the Nov. 5 elections. Meanwhile, in Washington, the chairman of the Senate Rules Committee, which held hearings on the Rockefeller nomination last week, said mail is running "very heavily against him." But Sen. Howard W. Cannon, D-Nev., said the panel "probably will very strongly" recom- m e n d Rockefeller's confirmation though he declined to rule out the possibility of Senate rejection. Sen. John G. Tower, R-Tex.. however, said when asked about the negative Rockefeller mail that "I don't think that that would influence the committee any." Tower said he has received a considerable amount of mail opposing the former New York governor, adding it "comes from both conservatjves and some of the Angela Davis stripe," a reference to the black revolutionary who testified against Rockefeller last week. But Tower predicted the nomination would be confirmed.' Greyhound Corp Admits Illegal Contributions WASHINGTON (AP)- The Greyhound Corp. pleaded guilty today to a misdemeanor charge of making illegal contributions totaling 516,040 to the 1972 presidential campaigns of Richard M . N i x o n a n d George McGovern. U.S. District Judge Oliver Gasch deferred sentencing. The maximum possible fine is $5,000. Thomas D. Finney. representing the Phoenix, Ariz., headquartered firm, said that officers of ihe corporation were reimbursed through company bonuses for contributions to the presidential candidates. Finney said that Greyhound's chairman and chief executive officer, Gei'ald Troutman. solicited the contributions from lesser officials. Finney said he did not know who had asked Troutman to contribute. "We intended no violation," Finney told the judge, but he said the firm was pleading guilty because "there is some value in alerting other companies that any subsequent use of bo- ruses' to reimburse contributions might be a violation of the law. He said he did not know how much of the total went to each campaign. Greyhound was the 16th corporation to be charged with violating the law against corporate campaign contributions. Fifteen firms pleaded guilty and one was acquitted. Buchanan Named Ambassador To Britain LONDON (AP) -- The Daily Mail said Wednescday that the Britain will be Wiley T. Buchanan Jr., a wealthy Texas businessman and former ambassador lo Luxembourg. Buchanan, 60, is "the only experienced American diplomat rich enough to take on the chore of ambassador to the Court of St. James's," the tabloid newspaper said in its daily diary section. It added that Buchanan "will accept the posting next week." Buchanan would replace Walter Annenberg, a former Philadelphia publisher who is retiring after more than five years in the London post. President Ford recently offered the ambassadorship to retiring Sen. J. William Fujbright, D-Ark., long-lime chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, but h e - t u r n e d it down for personal reasons. The Mail said it will cost Buchanan "at least 100,000 pounds--$240,000--a year out of his own pocket in entertaining alone." It said he "will stay here for a m i n i m u m of two years until the next presidential election." Buchanan "will put aside his many business interests to accept the post, which pays only $42,000 a year, with a $9,600 entertainment allowance," the Mail said. Buchanan was ambassador to Luxembourg 1955-57. He and his wife, Myrtle, have two daughters and a son.
