WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. District
Judge Frank Johnson bowed out as the
president's nominee for FBI director
yesterday, and Attorney General Grif-
fin Bell said the search for a replace-
ment will last into the new year.
Still in poor health after surgery last
August, Johnson said, "it will be sev-
eral more months before I will regain
my strength and stamina. It will not be
fair to the Federal Bureau of Investi-
gation or to me to keep this matter pen-
ding any longer."
IN A STATEMENT issued at his of-
fice in Montgomery, Ala., Johnson said
he regrets that "conditions over which I
have no control" have forced him to

Jody Powell called the withdrawal "a
loss td the administration, to the FBI
and to the country - and we regret it
Bell announced Johnson's decision at
a news conference and called it "un-
fortunate for the president, the FBI and
the nation. Judge Johnson would have
made an ideal leader for the FBI."
THE ATTORNEY General said he
and President Carter won't rush into a
decision about a new nominee to suc-
ceed Clarence Kelley and become the
third director in the FBI's 53-year his-
"My plan is to do nothing for two
weeks to let the dust settle and rethink
the selection process," Bell said.
"Hopefully during that time, names
will occur to me. I think it would be a
wise course not to rush."
Bell indicated that he would like
Kelley to remain in office for at least a'
short time beyond his scheduled retire-
ment date Jan. 1. Kelley has said he
could stay until the end of January but
he has made other professional com-
mitments after that time.
JOHNSON'S DECISION leaves the
administration with the task of filling
two top Justice Department jobs. Depu-
ty Attorney General Peter Flaherty has
announced he will leave soon to make
plans for a possible gubernatorial cam-
paign in his native Pennsylvania.
Bell said he has someone in mind for
that job but he's not ready to announce

a prepared statement that his recovery

theless "it is evident" that it will take
several more months "to regain my
strength and stamina." In view of that,
he said "it will not be fair to the Federal
Bureau of Investigation or me to keep
this matter pending any longer.'
The attorney general said he was
willing to wait for Johnson to take over
the FBI after a full recuperation
although that might have meant a delay
until late spring or early summer.
"I would wait," he said. "But Judge
Johnson has made his own decision that
it would not be fair to the FBI or to him-
BELL SAID he hopes a new candi-
date can be chosen and nominated by
Jan. 17 when Congress returns from a
recess, but he cannot promise to meet
He dropped few clues about who
might be in the running for the
nomination, except to say, "We still
have the list" of four men recommend-
ed by a presidentially appointed search
committee last June.
They are John Van de Kamp, district
attorney of Los Angeles County; Neil
Welch, a career FBI man and head of
the bureau's Philadelphia field office;
Judge John Irwin of the Massachusetts
Superior Court, and Sheriff William
Lucas of Detroit.
LUCAS' CHANCES were damaged by
disclosures that he had participated in
gambling junkets to Las Vegas.
The president and Bell also seriously
considered John Mintz, an assistant
FBI director and legal counsel who was
strongly supported by some members
of the search committee but failed to
make the final list.
Carter announced the nomination in
August and it was greeted with enthu-
siastic support from a broad range of
Johnson also would have suffered
financially from taking the FBI job,
and Bell said he believes "that had to be
a factor" in the decision even though
Johnson never mentioned it to him.

change the system so judges would not
be penalized for taking other govern-

kRAB NATIONS SPLIT:
By MARK PARRENT
Three vacant executive positions
were filled temporarily by The
Michigan Student Assembly (MSA)
last night in their first meeting with
the newly elected members seated.
Other officers were not elected last
night due to a Central Student
Judiciary (CSJ) ruling Monday night
postponing regular officer elections
for ten business days.
JASPER DIGIUSEPPE was elect-
ed Executive Vice President, Dave
Laverty Vice President for Student
Organizations, and Doug Kaplan
Academic Programs Coordinator.
The three will hold their posts until
permanent elections are held.
The Assembly is composed of
at-large representatives and repre-
sentatives appointed by the student
governments of the various schools
and colleges in the University. CSJ is
now debating whether the school and
college representatives are legal
under provisions of the. Assembly s
CSJ issued the order postponing
the elections until it is determined if
the school and college representa-
tives would be allowed to retain their
seats, and therefore be permitted to
vote for MSA officers.
MEMBERS ALSO debated the
procedure for selecting MSA officials
to be tour guides for the official Rose
Bowl tour in January.
MSA, along with the University
Activities Center (UAC), selects a
number of outstanding members of
their organizations to serve as tour
guides. The students receive free
passage to the Rose Bowl from the
travel agency conducting the tour.
"The one thing I fear is that it
would turn into a political plum,"~
Digiuseppe told the Assembly, refer-
ring to the coveted position.
"There are probably about a
hundred people who should go," said
MSA president Jon Lauer. He said
the selection process would be diffi-
cult, but added the appointments
would go to the most industrious
workers in the organization.

Governor William Milliken led a
marathon energy conference
yesterday, encouraging a full cycle
return to the oldest known fuel,
wood, as a significant energy source
for the immediate future.
Attending the 12-hour program in
the Chrysler Center on North Cam-
pus were 350 representatives of from
industry, government and
academia, including luminaries
from 16 states, Canada and Sweden.

be carried out in the state, Milliken
said, "Our choice is not whether we

what those substitutes will be."
Though acknowledging that wood
is just one potential energy source,
Milliken claimed full utilization of
the state's wood resources could
save $8.4 billion and 600 million bar-
rels of oil over the next 30 years.
