the CIA,
reported

Agency (CIA) and secret evidence on
charges the agency plotted foreign as-
sassinations.
Vice President Nelson Rockefeller per-
sonally handed the 350-page report,
bound in a blue cover, to Ford in the
President's Oval office.
THE REPORT on six months of prob-
ing -- mostly into alleged domestic spy-
ing on Americans by intelligence groups
-did not go into the charges the CIA
helped plot the deaths of foreign lead-
ers. But separate material on the sub-
ject was passed on to Ford.
"We did not feel we had the full story
on assassinations that would make the

basis for conclusions and recommenda-
tions," Rockefeller told the President in
the brief ceremony attended by five
other members of the commission.
Ford said he hoped the report's recom-
mendations, when implemented, will as-
sure "that there .is no question in the
future that the CIA will live within the
law."
DETAILS of the report are expected
to be made public over the weekend and
Rockefeller indicated earliefall of the
commission's evidence will be handed to
a Senate committee also probing the
CIA and intelligence groups.
After receiving the report, Ford said

the investigation "will give us the basis
for firm recommendations to make sure
we end up with a CIA that will do an
excellent job and at the same time as-
sure the privacy of individuals."
The probe of the CIA, FBI and other
police and intelligence groups dealt only
with their domestic activities, including
alleged illegal spying on Americans. De-
tails may be made public this weekend.
SEN. FRANK CHURCH (D-Idaho)
charged yesterday the Rockefeller Com-
mission chose "to duck the issue" of as-
sassinations and that the alleged plots
were "more than simply plans." The
chairman of the Senate Select Commit-

yesterday the CIA was involved in the
assassinations of former Dominican Re-
public dictator Rafael Trujillo and Pres-
ident Diem of South Vietnam.
The newspaper said the Rockefeller
Commission itself received evidence the
CIA supplied guns to Trujillo's killers
and money to South Vietnamese generals
who gunned down Diem - then tried
unsuccessfully to call off the plans at
the last moment.
"EVIDENTLY the commission has
chosen to duck it (the assassination is-
sue)" said Church. There's really no
way in this society that this kind of
thing can be swept under the rug."

By BILL TURQUE
Sen. Philip Hart's (D-Mich.) long-antici-
pated confirmation Thursday that he will
retire from the U. S. Senate in 1976 has
touched off state-wide speculation on his
successor. Long rosters of prospective can-
didates are forming in both- parties, and
hotly-contested primary races next sum-
mer are expected.
Republican observers, encouraged by
Hart's withdrawal, see Congressmen Mar-
vin Esch (R-Ann Arbor) and Philip Ruppe
(R-Houghton) as prime contenders for the
nomination at this point. University Regent
Deane Baker (R-Ann Arbor) has also indi-
cated an interest in Sen. Hart's seat.
THE LIST of Democrats is somewhat long-
er, with state Attorney General Frank Kel-
ley, Secretary of State Richard Austin, as
well as Congressmen Donald Riegle (D-

Flint), William Ford (D-Taylor), and Rich-
ard VanderVeen (D-Grand Rapids) all in
the running.
Esch is acknowledged by many to be
the favorite on the strength of his resound-
ing victory over Democrat John Reuther
last November.
"He's looking at it very seriously," said
an aide to Esch yesterday. "He's consid-
ering several factors, including who else
might be in the race."
THAT "who else" the- aide is referring
to is Gov. William Milliken, who is on re-
cord as saying he has "a moral obligation"
to finish out his term in Lansing, which
runs through 1978. One veteran Michigan
Republican who thinks Milliken has no de-
signs on Hart's seat is former Lt. Gov.
James Brickley, now president of Eastern
Michigan University.
"I don't think he's interested," said

Brickley. He's never shown any interest in
Washington."
Brickley himself has been mentioned by
state Republican Chairman William Mc-
Laughlin, as a potential candidate, but
Brickley says it is not in the cards.
"I'M COMPLETELY immersed in the ad-
miisration of this university, he asserted.
"I don't have to rule the possibility out be-
cause I never planned on it."
Baker, who has been traveling the state
since January attempting to line up party
support, indicated "a very deep interest"
in a Senate rini. He plans to formally an-
nounce his candidacy for the Republican
nomination either late this summer or early
in September.
Secretary of State Austin said his most
recent efforts have been aimed at urging
Hart to cancel his retirement plans.
