WASHINGTON (/ - President Ford's
hopes to announce his vice presidential
choice by the end of the week may be
delayed by the new crisis in Cyprus, a
White House spokesperson said yester-
Press Secretary Jerald terHorst told
a news briefing there "may be a change
in plans for the announcement of the
vice presidential nominee brought about
by the time President Ford is having
to spend on the Cyprus situation. "Ford
had planned to spend some of the time
considering recommendations from Con-
gress and other sources, terHorst said.
MEANWHILE, sources close to the
President said Ford is likely to replace
half of the Cabinet by the end of the
year and eventually is expected to re-
place Alexander Haig as White House
chief of staff.
Ford's schedule yesterday included a
session with the leadership of the Na-
tional Governor's Conference. In ad-
vance of the session, the executive com-
mittee of the governor's conference sent
a communication to the White House
asking that Ford strongly consider a
governor or former governor, a commit-
tee spokesman said.
Speculation centered on Nelson Rocke-
f1ler, former governor of New York,
or George B'ish, the Republican national
chairman, as Ford's most likely choice.
Rockefeller was being pushed mainly
by liberals and Imoderites in the party,
Bush mainly by the conservatives.
HOWEVER, there is some blurring o
ideological lines that indicated both
were acceptable.
Besides Rockefeller, possibilities from
GOP gubernatorial ranks included Gov.
Robert Ray of Iowa and Gov. Daniel
Evans of Washington, both moderates
known for candor and openness.

might be hurt by the concerted public
campaign being waged in his behalf by

tion after tional committee.
