FRIDAY. .JULY 26, 1974 TAPES ASSOCIATED PRESS, UPI, NEW YORK TIMES TUESDAY Warns of New War In Cyprus By United Press International Turkey landed more troops in Cyprus Friday and Cypriot P r e s i d e n t Glafkos derides warned that war would break out again within a few hours unless the Turks stopped violating the cease-fire terms. Almost immediately mortar and machine gun fire broke out along the Nicosia line separating the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot communities. Witnesses said Greek-led national guardsmen began piling into trucks to move into position. The peace talks among Britain. Turkey and Greece opened in Geneva but the two antagonists developed a hard line and there was no early progress. Both Greece and Turkey accused each other of breaking the cease-fire. The situation was darkened by political developments in Athens, where Premier Constantine Caramanlis ran into snags in forming his cabinet. He finally completed the list after a delay. “Solely on Turkey" “The responsibility of what might happen in the next few hours will rest solely on the shoulders of the Turkish government." derides said. “We are not prepared to con-; tinue to see Greek villages being ruined and refugees piling up while we stand still." derides, displaying a map showing alleged ground advances by Turkish forces to widen their corridor from Kyrenia to Nicosia, said he had cabled the guarantors of Cyprus* independence meeting in Geneva, “explaining the situation clearly." “I can no longer accept the responsibility of restraining the national guard and other forces in the republic from taking counter action," he said. Greek Troops? Asked if by “other forces" he meant Greek troops had arrived on the island, derides said: “No comment” His warning was put into the record in Geneva, where Greek Foreign Minister George Mibros was meeting with British Foreign Secretary James Callaghan and Turkish Foreign Minister Turan Gunes. A British spokesman said Friday’s opening session was devoted to trying to make the cease-fire stick. But Greece and Turkey took diametrically-opposed views with Greece demanding withdrawal of Turkish troops before there is a political settlement and Turkey demanding a political settlement first to protect the minority Turkish Cypriots.

District Judge John Sirica, James St. Clair, presidential attorney, agreed Friday to surrender tapes of 20 Watergate conversations by next Tuesday and to speed work on 44 others. St. Clair and special prosecutor Leon Jaworski agreed to a compromise timetable for White House surrender of the tapes after Sirica made clear he would not accept a promise by President Nixon’s lawyer to move "as quickly as possible" but without a specific target date. Sirica said he hopes prompt production of the material, which the supreme court ordered Nixon to surrender on Wednesday, will enable the Watergate cover-up trial of six former presidential and campaign aides to start on schedule Sept. 9. 13 More Friday Under the compromise agreement, reached in a private conference that lasted more than an hour, St. Clair will report back to Sirica next Friday on progress in preparing the tapes and documents relating to the remaining 44 conversations. Associate special prosecutor James Neal said that next Friday will be a target date for 13 additional conversations beyond the fir st 20. The 20 conversations for which tapes are to be turned over by next Tuesday include material covered in the edited White House transcripts released in late April. Earlier, St. Clair told Sirica it would be impossible to comply with Jaworski’s: proposal that the White House surrender all of the tapes within IO days. Original Order However, Sirica told St. Clair, "I think you’re making this thing more complicated than it should be." Sirica said he would set a timetable himself if St. Clair and Jaworski could not agree on one between themselves. With that statement, Sirica called a 30-minute recess in the hearing on Jaworski’s call for prompt compliance. Sirica noted that his original order, upheld by the supreme court decision, had allowed ll days for surrender of the tapes and documents and that his order had been upheld “in all respects." After the material is turned over to Sirica, he will review it to determine whether it is relevant to the cover-up trial. Material Sirica considers relevant to the trial will be turned over to Jaworski. Two Months St. Clair had said it was impossible to say how long it would take the White House to review', analyze and index the material and turn it over to Sirica. St. Clair told the supreme court that the process could take as long as two months, but told Sirica he did not think it would take that long. He said Nixon plans to listen to all of the tapes before they are surrendered because he “feels quite strongly he should know what he is turning over." of the glassed-in double door to Miking drought as far east as saKj week Although temperatures have lowered somewhat and there has been some scattered rainfall this week, the outlook continues to be grim.
