The transcripts were released to Sirica on Monday and almost at the same time the White House released Nixon’s statement in which the President said the latest disclosure would damage his case.  Aide Pictures Nixon as Not Downcast  SAN CLEMENTE. Calif. (UPI —■ Richard Nixon was pictured as in good spirits and not downcast Saturday but he spent his first full day as a private citizen since his fall from power behind a veil of privacy with his family in their oceanside villa.  The Nixons did not venture from behind the guarded walls of their home and the few visitors during the day were not identified. The former President spent 314 hours working at his office complex.  A member of Nixon’s staff who accompanied him to San Clemente said that the former Chief Executive had not talked with President Ford since he left Washington but that he was expected to do so in the near future.  The spokesman was asked about Nixon’s mood.  “I think one way to answer that is to say he has been busy in terms of reading and working on some matters,” he replied.  ‘‘His spirits are good. He is not downcast. The decision he announced the other night is a decision he is very comfortable with and he is satisfied that in the national interest it was the right step for him to take "  There will be very little information about Nixon’s activities in the coming days, he said, because ‘‘the President looks at this as a private lime — he will be spending the time with his family.”  Iowa Deaths  Amana    Mrs. William  Haim, 73.

Portugal Maps Withdrawal from Colony in Angola  LISBON, Portugal (AP) — Portugal took another step away from its African empire Ion Saturday by outlining a formula to give independence to its I troubled west African colony of Angola in about two years.  I The new government’s military junta promised a start on ‘‘self determination” for Angola as soon as a cease-fire with liberation movements there can be effected.  The junta, headed by President Atonnio de Spinola, said the same liberation movements, fighting for independence for more than a decade, would be included in a provisional government to be charged with holding a constituent assembly election within two years and later writing a constitution.  After this, the junta said Angolans can have “a government legitimately representative of the sovereign will of the people of Angola.”  Ex-Cuban Head Jose Cardona Is Dead at 71  SAN JUAN. Puerto Rico (AP) — Former Cuban prime minister Jose Miro Cardona died Saturday of a heart attack, a family spokesman said. He was 71.  Miro Cardona was professor at the University of Puerto Rico School of Law at the time of his death.  He served as Fidel Castro’s first prime minister for several months in 1959 and 1960, then as Cuba’s ambassador to Spain.  He fled to the United States in 1963 after an ideological dispute with Castro and finally settled in Puerto Rico.  —Ford—  (Continued from Page I.)  unflagging support and total loyalty to you,” said Kissinger.  Ford expressed his gratitude that the cabinet had carried on under what he termed trying circumstances during the last several months of the Richard Nixon administration. Ford said he intended to meet individually and face-to-face with each cabinet member when problems arose. However, Ford said, those personal meetings would be business “rather than chitchat.”  Jerald Terllorst, press secretary to the new President who took the oath Friday, told reporters at a briefing that Ford underscored the importance of continuity and stability at this point in the transition between administrations.  “I believe that is what the country wants,” Terllorst quoted the President as saying to the cabinet. ‘‘I think we have a fine team here.”  Ford was said to have stressed to the cabinet his announced policy of openness and candor and to have urged them to be affirmative in their relations with news media.,  Sign Bills?  President Ford must decide whether to sign or to veto a number of bills left lying on the desk of Richard Nixon when Nixon resigned, including one that would allow Americans to own gold for the first time in four decades.  The most important of these measures contains the federal appropriation for elementary and secondary education and includes an anti-busing provision considered by many to be the strongest ever approved.  The education bill was approved 81 to 15 by the senate and 323 to 83 by the house — margins that are more than enough to override a veto, although there are no indications Ford would veto the measure.  The bill would forbid courts to order children bused beyond the school second closest to their homes, except where courts ruled that wider busing was needed to protect a child’s constitutional rights.  Same Process  TerHorst said that Ford would follow essentially the same process used by former President Nixon in selecting a man to fill the second job in the administration.  Ford has asked the Republican congressional leaders, Rep. Rhodes of Arizona and Sen. Scott of Pennsylvania, and Re-publican party Chairman George Bush to contact GOP congressmen and party leaders across the country to solicit their suggestions for a vicepresidential nominee.  TerHorst said Ford also plans to seek advice on whom to name from members of the cabinet, the White House staff and Democratic leaders of congress, Speaker Albert of Oklahoma and Sen. Mansfield of Montana.  TerHorst said each person has been invited to submit by next Wednesday three names in order of preference. The recommendations will be mailed in sealed envelopes and addressed personally to the President “and he alone will handle it,” he said.  Beauty Contest  TerHorst said the President will seriously consider each potential nominee suggested, “but I’m sure the President is not going to run a beauty contest and do it on who had the most votes.”  TerHorst was asked if the President might consider a Democrat and he replied that Ford has not specified one way or the other the party affiliation.  TerHorst said that if (members of the public wanted to express their preferences he was sure the mail office in the White House would accept such letters but he did not indicate whether they would reach the President’s desk.  TerHorst said he hopes the recommendation process would be completed within a week or IO days. Ford has peviously indicated he would try to .submit a nominee to congress by that time. His choice requires congressional ratification.

The Turkish demand followed an incident earlier in the day in which Turkish and Turkish Cypriot representatives withdrew from the peace talks for seven hours until a ruckus over negotiating table nameplates could be settled. The nameplate question was tied to the status of Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot delegates and thus to the issue of federalism.  In other developments, a high Turkish government official warned of new fighting on Cyprus unless the Turkish and Greek communities on the island receive autonomy in their separate enclaves.  Britain halted a scheduled withdrawal of troops and planes from its Cyprus bases Saturday I rn ans admitted a as a precaution against possible breakthrough on the new fighting on the island.
