Watergate reform GOP delegates favor Connally for VP

bill passes Senate

WASHINGTON (P) - In its
first major legislative response
to the Watergate scandal, the
Senate voted yesterday to cre-
ate a special prosecutor and to
bar presidential campaign
aides from top Justice Depart-
ment posts.
With widespread bipartisan
support, the so-called Water-
gate reform bill passed by a
roll call vote of 91 to S. It now
goes to the House.
PRESIDENT Ford also had
supported the measure, but that
was before a provision was add-
ed that would prohibit presi-
dents from naming top presi-
dential or vice presidential
campaign officials to serve as
attorney general or his deputy.
There was no immediate
comment from the White House
on this provision.
The special prosecutor would
be authorized to investigate
such scandals as Watergate,
which brought on the resigna-
tion of former President Rich-
ard Nixon.
THE investigations w o u I d
include alleged violations of
law by the president, vice pres-
ident, attorney general. FBI di-
rector, all other Cabinet offic-
ials, federal judges and mem-
bers of Congress.
The bill also would require
high level public officials, in-
cluding judges and members
of Congress as well as adminis-
tration officials, to file full fi-
nancial disclosure statements
which would be open to public
inspection.
Also created by the measure
would be an Office of Govern-
ment Crimes within the Justice
Department which would inves-
tigate allegations of wrongdo-
ing by all other government of-
ficials as well as allegations of

violations of lobbying and elec-
tion laws.
THE provisions barring cam-
paign officials from serving as
attorney general was offered by
Sen. Lloyd Bentsen (D-Tex.)
and adopted on a voice vote.
Bentsen said it was time to
"assure the American people"
that politics had been removed
from the operations of the Jus-
tice Department.
He said the practice of nam-
ing campaign officials to such
posts "contributes to a grow-
ing perception of the Depart-
ment of Justice as a political
instrument."
THE Watergate bill had been
the subject of intensive nego-
tiations the past few days be-
tween Ford administration of-
ficials and members of Con-
gress.
The President had objected
to a provision that called for
appointment of a temporary
special prosecutor whenever the
need arises.
The administration succeeded
in getting congressional sup-
port for creation of a perma-
nent special prosecutor's of-
fice.
The special prosecutor would
be appointed by the President
and confirmed by the Senate.
He would serve a single three-
year term and could be remov-
ed by the President only "for
e x t r a o r d i n a r yim-
proprieties, for malfeasance in
office, or for any conduct con-
stituting a felony"
Venezuela - larger than Cal-
ifornia, Oregon and Washington
combined - is the fifth most
important oil producing country
in the world and has the larg-
est petroleum refinery.

Connally is the top choic
vice president of the R
lican National Convention

cause of strong support
those who favor Ronald
gan for president.
But delegates backing Y

on Reagan as Ford's rui
mate or continuing the cu
lineup with Vice President
son Rockefeller, than on

survey of delegates found
JUST OVER 60 per ce
the 1,982 delegates intervi
by The AP didn't expre

Traditionally, the co
tion has approved the choi

Ford and Reagan have alr
indicated a willingness to
sider allowing the conve
to pick a running mate wh
meets in Kansas City in
August.

In light of thediscussion of
a Ford - Reagan or a Rea- z
gan - Ford ticket, Ford's dele-
gates seem more receptive to
a Ford - Reagan team than
Reagan delegates would be to
a Reagan - Ford team.
IT IS Ford's delegates who
are responsible for the numer-
ous mentions of Reagan - 78
of the delegates naming Reagan
for vice president are Ford
delegates. Most of the rest are
uncommitted.
By contrast, less than a third
as many Reagan supporters -
25 -- named Ford for vice
