Reagan aide opposed early isit
From AP and UPI
campaign chairman says he opposed
his candidate's precedent-breaking
late-night visit to the Republican
National Convention floor after
negotiations for a Reagan-Gerald Ford
ticket broke down.
But Reagan was right, Sen. Paul
Laxalt (R-Nev.) conceded yesterday.
LAXALT MADE THE statements at
a news conference announcing the ap-
pointment of Anne Armstrong, former
ambassador to Great Britain, as co-
chairman of the Republican presiden-
tial nominee's campaign.
He also announced the appointment
of Jim Baker, former chairman of vice-
presidential nominee George Bush's
unsuccessful campaign for the GOP
presidential nomination, as senior ad-
viser to the Reagan campaign.
Both are Texans and the Reagan
campaign hopes they will help in a key
state carried by President Carter
HOWEVER, MUCH OF the news con-
ference focused on Laxalt's role in
negotiations at the Detroit convention
on the possibility of former President
Ford's running for vice president.
After these negotiations collapsed
late Wednesday night, Reagan broke
precedent by going to the convention
hall in advance of his acceptance
speech to announce there had been
discussions with 'Ford, but he had
"We had a difference of opinion as to
whether he should come to the hall,"
Laxalt said. "I didn't really think he
should come." -
LAXALT SAID HE had been concer-
ned that support for a Reagan-Ford
ticket was so strong that the Bush an-

BRIGHTON, England (UPI) -
Blocked by strong opposition from
Japan and Russia, the world's last
major whaling nations, the United
States failed yesterday for the second
year running to win a world-wide ban
on the commercial killing of whales.
The U.S/proposal failed to win the
required three-fourths majority vote in

A leading conservationist group,
Friends of the Earth, called the
decision "shortsighted and inhumane.
"Those countries which exploit
whales continue to call the tune," the
group said in a statement. "The Inter-

forum for regulating whale catches is

OUTSIDE THE Brighton Hotel where
the commission met, 100 teenage
demonstrators chanted anti-whaling
slogans and carried two inflatable blue
whales plastered with slogans.
The voting in the full 24-member

reaction. I felt there might be a

But Reagan disagreed.
"He thought he should come, and his
political instincts were right," Laxalt
said. "I completely misread the mood
on the floor."
HE ALSO SAID he had not known in
advance Bush would be Reagan's
choice if the Ford deal fell through.
Laxalt denied reports he had decided
not to go to the hall to hear Reagan's
acceptance speech becaue he was mif-
