SATURDAY, JULY 27. 1974 NIXONITES ABAN *4 M' I I *’ %■ 'V w oSi! ra a' - * >r u Voice Hope Of Cyprus Settlement By I’lie Associated Press A Turkish peace plan was under consideration Saturday at the Cyprus peace talks in Geneva, and Turkey was reported slowing its buildup of armed forces on the Mediterranean island. Military sources in Cyprus said Turkish armed forces there had reached more than 25.000 men and 200 tanks, but U.N. officials said a Turkish troop advance that had violated Monday’s cease-fire had stopped. In Ankara, informed sources said Turkey is winding down ifs Cyprus operation. Resupply and maintenance shipments will continue, the sources said, but reinforcement has been com-leted. Premier Bulent Ecevit met Saturday with the Greek ambassador to Turkey, Dimitri Cos-madopoulos, and said afterward the meeting was “friendly.” Turkish Airlines resumed regular domestic service. Before Sunday In Geneva, Greek Foreign Minister George Mavros said after meeting privately Saturday with Turkish Foreign Minister Turan Gunes that a “final agreement” might be reached before Sunday. Turkey’s semi-official Anatolia news agency reported from Geneva that an agreement was expected to be signed Saturday. The developments appeared to restore some optimism to the talks which came close to ending in failure Friday. Britain, Greece and Turkey are guarantors of Cypriot independence under the 1960 treaty that established the island republic. Representatives of the three countries started peace negotiations Thursday. The U.S. is sitting in as an observer. Fresh Fighting U.N. sources reported fresh fighting Friday as Turks tried to expand their beachhead on the northern coast. The Cyprus U.N. ambassador, Zenon Rossides, told the Security Council of “the grave deterioration of the situation in Cyprus through the continued and flagrant violation of the cease fire by Turkey.” Turkey controlled about twice the territory it held when the cease-fire went into effect. Diplomatic pressure from Britain and the U.S. helped save the Geneva talks from collapsing Friday. Mavros repeatedly accused Turkey of moving troops in violation of the cease-fire. Greek sources said he had made up his mind to break off the talks. Points in Plan But British Foreign Minister James Callaghan, assisted by the U.S. observer, Undersecretary of State William Buffum. persuaded Mavros to consider the Turkish plan. Turkish sources said their plan included these points: A cease-fire based on existing positions. A no man s land separating Turkish troops from both Greek Cypriot forces and I N. peacekeeping units. An interim political settlement that would allow the Greek Cypriot majority and the Turkish Cypriot minority to odin i ii i s t e r their own affairs separately. A further conference within IO days to consider longer-term political and security questions. Toil tty'* Chuckle Graffiti Someone wrote “Is there intelligent life on earth'’” Underneath, someone added, “Yes, but I’m only Visiting”    Copyright Pen Holdout: lf I Go, We All Go Down HUNTSVILLE, Texas (UPI) — Convict Fred Gomez Carrasco Saturday repeated threats to execute ll persons he has held hostage for three days saying, “if I go, w'e all go down.” Carrasco, making a desperate bid for escape from the Texas State penitentiary, warned prison officials not to underestimate him. “They can take the responsibility. They re underestimating me and by doing so they are putting many lives in jeopardy. If they do provoke me, you’ll know what caused it,” he said. Opens Fire Friday night Carrasco, armed with revolvers, opened fire, hitting no one, in a display of anger, and rejected an offer of transportation from the prison director, W. J. Estelle. The des-, pcrado insisted he will dictate his own terms for escape. “Carrasco has made this clear to us — he will leave the way he wants to — at the time he wants to,” a prison spokesman said. During Friday night negotia-i tions, Carrasco fill'd seven pot shots in the prison library where he has beld his hostages. who include seven wromen since Wednesday. “Short-Changed” Carrasco, who successfully, bargained with prison officials for bullet-proof vests and walkie-talkies, said he opened fire because he felt the quality of the items delivered was inferior.

Suribachi on Iwo Jima in 1945, Marine Cpl. Frank fssac was standing sev-e r a I hundred feet away, flushed with pride. More than three decades later, Issac looked up at the huge bronze marine Iwo .lima Memorial across the Potomac river from the nation’s capital and said the pride had turned to disappointment and bitterness “We Navajos fought for our country, we helped win the war against Japan. Now our sons have also fought for our country. And how ar ewe treated'.’ On mv reservation, 79 percent of the veterans are unemployed.” Issac 51. was one of several dozen Navajo veterans of four U.S. wars who gathered at the memorial Friday to pray in their native tongue, talk with newsmen and protest what they say is discriminatory treatment of Vietnam era In dian veterans. The statue of the marines raising the flag at Iwo Jima brings back many memories, Issac said. One of the six was his friend Ira Hayes, a Pima Indian who died in Arizona iii 1955 “He volunteered to help raise the flag. I was right there with him 200, maybe 300 feet away," Issac said. One of the most decorated marines of World war ll. Issac was one of a number of Navajo “code talkers" who relayed sensitive military information by translating it into Navajo in radio communications. “It was the only code the Japanese couldn’t break Every other code and foreign language that was tried, the Japanese cracked lf it hadn t been for the Navajo code talkers, Japan would have won the war.” Issac said “You’d think the U.S. would recognize the contributions of the Navajos. But our sons are coming home from service and can’t find work " The Navajos came to Washington from their reservation that sprawls over parts of New Mexico. Arizona and Utah They testified before a senate subcommittee that held hearings on a boundary dispute between the Navajo Nation and the Hopi Indians and on legislation to establish an Indian medical services program. The Navajo reservation has a per capita income of $759 and a population of 140,000. of whom 14.000 are veterans of World wars I and ll, Korea and Vietnam. But the Navajos claim that benefits available to other U S. veterans are practically non-existent on the reservation Many like Emmett Left-hand, who was an army ser geant in Vietnam, claim they can’t get VA financing to buy a home. “As soon as they hear you’re an Indian living on a reservation, they send you from one office to another all that red tape, hut I’ve tw'en trying for three years and still can’t get a loan.” Lefthand said The Navajos also say they want the government to build a veterans hospital on their reservation. But most of all. they say, they want more jobs. Jim Begay, a Navajo World war ll air force veteran, pointed to Hayes on the memorial. “lf an Indian can do that, then surely this country can do something for hun in return,” he said policy.
