OSHA officials want health researchers at the department I The inter-agency dispute comes at the same time as a somewhat related controversy that was sparked when the senate Watergate committee published a memorandum written by OSHA's former chief, George Guenther. The memo proposed that Nixon fund-raisers use the agency's record as a "selling point" with the employers Guenther was supposed to be suggestions as to how to promote the advantages of four more years of properly-managed OSHA would be the memo said.

Turkish Prime Alinister Bu- lent Ecevit and Defense Minister Hasan Esat Isik flew to London for crucial talks while Turkish newspapers spoke openly of im- minent invasion. Archbishop Makarios, oust- ed president of Cyprus, also flew to London and met with British Prime Minister Harold Wilson for 55 minutes Wednes- day to discuss the future of ?iis island country. Wilson assured Makarios that Britain stands firmly by the terms of the 1960 treaty guaran- teeing the independence and territorial integrity of Cyprus, a spokesman at the prime min- ister's office said. After consultation with the British, Makarios was expected to fly to New York to appeal to the United Nations Security Council for help in reversing the coup. Turkish Threat Turkey, Greece and Britain are co-guarantors of the free- dom and independence of Cyprus, but Turkey says Greece defaulted by permitting Greek officers to lead the Cypriot na- ional guard in the revolt against Makarios.
