AUGUST 16, 1974 ASSOCIATED PhKSS, NEW YORK TIMES CALL CYPRUS TRUCE Union Head: Freeze Pay And Prices WASHINGTON (UPI) Pres- ident Ford conferred with Teamsters President Frank Fitzsimmons Friday and was urged to impose a wage-price freeze. Ford's aides have made clear in economic hearings in congress this week that he has no intention of returning to mandatory controls of the kind that government officials now say were a mistake. But Filz- simmons told reporters after a 45-minute meeting with Ford in the Oval Office: "There should be a complete freeze on all prices and wages. Something has to be done to shock the American people back into reality." Fitzsimmons said in a meet- ing 'on the White House lawn with newsmen that Ford only listened and did not react to his suggestion. But he quoted Ford as saying he had in mind "a program, that he is going to come out with" one worked out by the President and his economic advisers. "Slap in Face" Fitzsimmons said he not only suggested a return to wage- price controls but told Ford that he should also consider rolling back prices in some sectors of the economy. The union head said a 10 per- cent price increase announced by General Motors for 1975 autos on the day Ford was sworn in was "a slap in the face of the President." On emerging from his home in Alexandria, Va., Ford was asked Friday if he had reached a decision on his selection for vice-president. With a broad grin he said, "I haven't been thinking about it." Press Secretary Jerald ter- Horst said Ford probably won't announce his choice until next Tuesday or Wednesday. The Detroit Free Press said Friday that Nelson Rockefeller now was by far the leading can- didate. Hussein Meeting Ford also met with King Hus- sein of Jordan to review the Mid- dle East situation. Hussein was the first head of state to visit Washington since Ford became President.' Congress is moving quickly to give Ford the inflation-monitor- ing task force he wants. 2oth the house and senate fcanttng committees quickly ap- proved his request for the new "jawboning" agency Thursday, and both houses are tentatively scheduled to consider the bill Monday. Ford Vetoes Pest Disease Research Bill WASHINGTON (AP) Pres- ident Ford's second veto has killed a bid to beef up the research battle against diseases and pests which annually de- stroy billion worth of meat and poultry. "Because this bill would add further to the federal taxpayers' burdens without significantly meeting national needs and would only add Jo inflationary pressures within the economy, 1 feel that I must withhold my ap Ford told the house in his veto message Thursday. The legislation would have au- thorized million more each year to go along with the million at present spent annual- ly on programs involving ani- mal health research. The house agriculture committee chair- man, Rep. Poage pronounced the bill dead for this year because "we couldn't pass this bill over a veto." "Ill-Advised" Its chief sponsor, Rep. Melch- er (D-Mont.) the lone veterinari- an in the house, called the veto :ill-advised and the result of the new President still having the Office of Management and Budg- et call the shots at the White House." Saying he would offer the measure again next year, Welcher told a newsman, "This is anti-inflationary, and President Ford simply couldn't aave been aware of that. "One of the most critical areas of inflation is food costs, and this bill was designed to reduce it simply by keeping ani- mals healthy and therefore in- creasing supplies. This veto was a defeat for the consumer." Melcher said the agriculture department has shown "that we lave in excess of billion an- nually in losses of meat and joultry through .sickness and disease." Ford Comment Ford said he believes, "as do proponents of this bill, that vet- erinary research has helped to make American livestock the lealthiest and most productive n the world. We must continue to maintain high standards of research. But I also believe that this bill adds little to the existing jrogram of the department of agriculture and other agen- cies." Ford's first veto came Mon- day when he rejected a bill in- creasing salaries of deputy U.S. marshals. Today's Chuckle A soap opera is where it lakes a woman 11 months to have a premature baby. Senate Votes AEC Revamp; Sets Non-Nudear Study WASHINGTON (AP) A bill reorganizing the Atomic Energy Commission and launching a 10- year program of non-nuclear en- ergy research has been passed by the senate. The measure approved on Thursday would separate the AEC into two agencies one to license and regulate nuclear power plants and related activi- ties and another to conduct re- search. The new Energy Research and Development Administration would include AEC research fa- cilities as well as those of the interior depar'mcnt and the Na- tional Science Foundation. The billion program of non-nuclear energy research was added to the bill in an amendment by Sen. Jackson (D-Wash.) who said it will cor- rect an imbalance in the legisla- tion. The Jackson amendment was added on a vole of 78 to 0 and the full measure fhcn passed by voice vote. Jackson said ho feared that without his amendment the now research agency would do de- tailed nuclear work but Rive only cursory nllenlinn lo other techniques, including solar en- ergy, geothermal energy and energy derived from fossil fuels. In other action on the bill, the senate approved an amendment by Sen. Kennedy (D-Mass.) to permit the government to pay the legal fees of citizens challenging the licensing of nu- clear power plants. Alsotfpproved was an amend- ment by Sen. Dole (R-Kan.) to exempt the four months of De- cember through March from Daylight Saving Time.

Ford Holds Tapes, Pending Review WASHINGTON (UPI) Pres- ident Ford Friday ordered all former President Nixon's tapes and documents held temporarily in White House custody pending a review by the special Water- gate prosecutor's office. Press Secretary Jerry ter- Horst sajd Ford acted on the ad- vice of his new counsel, Philip Buchen, in consultation with Special Prosecutor Leon Ja- worski's office. "In the interest of allowing timely consideration of possible legal issues raised by the spe- cial prosecutor and others, movement of the tapes and doc- uments is being Horst said. He also said Buchen "tells me that this development in no way constitutes a denial that the ma- terials are the personal property of the former President." Informal Opinion Nixon's Watergate lawyers, James St. Clair and J. Fred Buzhardt, Wednesday rendered an informal opinion that all the Nixon tapes and documents not yet subpoenaed or made public were the personal property of the former President. The presidential spokesman said that as far as he knew there had been no request from Nixon to have the material de- livered to him. TerHorst said he was assured by Buchen that the holdup in transfer "merely allows for or- derly and more studied efforts to resolve questions of when and under what conditions posses- sion of- and sole control of the property should be trans- ferred." TerHorst said he knew of no Rest Home Fire; 6 Die BROOKHAVEN, Miss. (AP) Six patients died and two people were injured Friday when fire destroyed a rest home. Authorities said a nurse's aide, Christine Carnley, left the building with the first patients to escape, then returned several times to help others flee.

Reaction Denied White House officials had in- dicated Ford was upset when he learned that Nixon's lawyers, without Jaworski's approval, had decided the material be- longed to the former President. TerHorst said he would "flat- ly deny" the reported reaction. The officials said Ford fretted that his administration "was be- coming tarnished" by the tapes issue and so "he put his foot down and said 'I'm not going to have it'." TerHorst announced Thursday that Buzhardt had tendered his resignation 'and Ford 'accepted. To succeed Buzhardt, Ford named his former college room- mate and law partner, Buchen. Musical Growth EA'STBOURNE, England (UPI) Charlie Roberts, 62, claimed a world record for growing a tomato weighing 4V4 pounds. Roberts said he en- couraged its growth by fitting headphones around it and play- ing it stereo music daylong. Girl, 15, Tackles 32-Mile Swim YOUNGSTOWN, N. Y. (AP) A 15-year-old girl began early Friday what she hopes will be a uccessful 32-mile'swim across Lake Ontario to Toronto. Cindy Nicholas of Scar- >orough, Ont., began the cross- ing at a.m. from this north- western New York community. The water temperature' was 71 and the lake was calm. The only person thus far to swim the lake was Marilyn Bell of Toronto, who completed the reat in 20 hours on Sept. 8, 1954. She was 16. Miss Nicholas is following the route used by Miss Bell, who was racing with Florence Chad- wick, famed English Channel swimmer. But Miss Chadwick gave up the Lake Ontario cross- ing after going 15 miles. .The five-feet-four 135-pound Miss Nicholas said she had hoped to swim the lake last year, but did not feel mature enough. "By she said, "I mean I didn't feel I was able to cope with the panic situations that would come up." She was accompanied Friday by two pace boats, one an out- board molorboat and the other a sailboat. With her were her father; her trainer, Al Waites, a Toronto swimming coach; and Waites' son, Bruce, 21, whoso role was to pace her. Bruce planned to jump into the lake and swim with her from time to tnsc when she got off pace. The plan was for Miss Nicho- las to be fed three times during the crossing. Food was to be passed to her in a cup on the end of a stick. House Votes Billion Housing Bill WASHINGTON (AP) The house passed and sent to Pres ident Ford a compromise billion housing bill Thursday in- corporating some ideas o former President Nixon anc some that he had opposed. The vote was 377-21. The measure was believed ac- ceptable to the new administra- tion. The bill would make available about million over the next two years for each of two sub- sidy programs Nixon had op- posed. One provides subsidies for home ownership by low in- come families, the other funds for low-rent apartments. Going along with Nixon's rec- ommendations for combining programs into block grants and giving local authorities more discretion in the use of federal funds, the bill combines seven specific categorical programs into an billion community development block grant. The grants would be allocated on the basis of population and prevalence of poverty. Cities would be assured for three years at least the level of grants they had received earlier. In a section aimed at boosting the lagging housing industry, the bill would raise from to the ceiling on FHA-in- sured mortgages on single-fami- ly homes. The measure also includes programs of housing production, rehabilitation and leasing, es- timated to benefit about persons. The total includes ?150 million for conventional public housing, enough for about new units, and million for new construction or rehabilitation of existing housing.

"It's all said a British military source. Cyprus President Glafcos derides said Greek Cypriot forces also would stop fighting at 11 a.m. Iowa time. Fighting Ended Sporadic firing continued in Nicosia for five or six minutes after the deadline. But as of a.m., Iowa time, the fight- ing appeared to have ended at least temporarily. Ecevit said the Turkish troops were expected to reach their "military objectives no later than the cease-fire hour." The objectives apparently in- volve carving out a Turkish sec- tor in the northern third of the island which would be cut off from the south by a line bisect- ing Cyprus from Lefka in the west to Famagusla in the east. Claimed Lefka Turkish troops captured Fama- gusta and the Turkish Cypriot claimed the Turks also guard and police fled from the and the Greek Cypriot quarter was deserted. There .vas no opposition as Turkish troops moved from the Turkish Cypriot sector into the Greek quarter Friday. Another Turkish column was pushing westward to extend the line from Nicosia to Lefka, on the northwest coast. It was re- ported six miles from Morphou, a major town 21 miles west of Nicosia and 10 miles from Lefka. The Turkish Cypriot radio reported Greek and Greek Cypriot troops were "retreating in panic" from Lefka. The Greek Cypriols were be- eved to have abandoned Mor- hou also.

(AP) Stung by the falling cattle market and anxious to get away for a while, the Marcus Joachim family is planning to drift through life for a few years on a giant homemade houseboat. Joachim, 26, who raised 100 head of cattle on his father's farm near here before Ihe bot- tom dropped out of the mar- ket, drew up the plans himself and began building Ihe vessel in May. He plans to launch it on the Missouri river, and is con- structing the 70-foot-long and 20-fool-high vessel on a trailer so all he has to do is pull it 200 miles south to the launch ramp at Sioux City. "He's been playing with the idea for four years and we just decided to do said his wife, Barbara, 22. "The cattle weren't making much of a liv- ing and he figured that before the kids are in school, we'd all get away while we can. I think it will be fun." The couple and their two daughters, Sclissa, 4, and Ni- cole, 8 months, live with his father, Victor. Joachim, who worked on boats in Alaska, hopes lo have his finished in October. The family will leave then, unless they're short of money, in which case they'll save and sail next spring. The boat's main structure is constructed of 2-by-6-inch planks, and the bottom and sides will be covered by fi- berglass. The living quarters, 14 feet by 40 feet, will be built on the main deck with a wheel house mounted on top. There will be two bedrooms and three watertight compart- ments for storage. Tanks will be built in the hold to carry gallons of fuel and water. "It will be just like a large trailer Mrs. Joachim said. "It will have a washer, heater, stove, lights, every- thing. "We plan to go to New Orleans, but after that we're not sure. Maybe we'll go around the West Coast and up to Alaska. He's making it so we can go on the ocean. "If we run short of money, we'll stop and he'll get a job, probably as a welder. But we really won't need much money.

We'll see how we like it." lad taken Lefka before the cease-fire deadline. As the Turkish noose arounc Nicosia tightened, the Greek Cy priot government fled the capi tal for the south coast port o Limassol. There was no evidence tha any attempt had been made t remove files or other papers The presidential office buildin was completely deserted Even the armed police guard sur rounding it until earlier in tin day was nowhere to be seen. The flight of the Cyprus gov ernment was joined an hour later by the British high com missioner on the island, Stephen Olver, and his staff. Ecevit defined Turkey's sec ond military operation on the island as an "unprecedentec victory" because "history shows ;hat military operations on is- iands are among the most dif- ficult to carry out." He said "this not only shows Turkey's skill at making war also the genuineness of our peaceful because 'in order to achieve an ent which could be .achieved in few days militarily we spenl weeks at the negotiating table." "We even undertook diplomat- ic demarches knowing before- land they would produce no he said, apparently re- ferring to his trip to London )efore Turkey invaded the is- .and on July 20. "In fact the foundations have 3een laid for a federated Cyprus ;tate with two separate au- tonomous regions and adminis- rations, which has been our iroposal from the beginning as be only possible Ece- vit said. Removed Obstacles He expressed belief that the results of the Turkish military operation "removed the obsta- cles blocking the negotiations" on Cyprus. Turkey resumed military ac- ion on the strife-torn island Wednesday following the collapse of the second round of peace talks Tuesday night. Ecevit said, "Now we have imple time for detailed work to- vards setting up a new state of )ypnis. Now the security of the Turkish Cypriots is under strong guarantee." Meanwhile, the danger of war jetween Greece and Turkey les- sened as Greek Premier Con- stantino Caramanlis said in broadcast ,that the Greek army i would not reinforce the Greek Cypriot troops because this would leave Greece defenseless. Turkish tanks late Thursday afternoon rolled into Famagus- ta, the Mediterranean island'? chief port. The action es- tablished a 33-miic line from the capital, Nicosia, to the easi coast.

Police said the woman, 23- year-old Kimiko Yoshii, gave the birth certificate of her hus- band, Yukio, to Moon Se-kwang, the 23-year-old assassin, so he could get a Japanese passport in the husband's name. Moon is a Korean who has been living in Osaka. Mrs. Yoshii was charged with violating emigration and passport laws. Police said she admitted giving Moon her husband's birth certificate to help him get the passport. Seoul's chief prosecutor, Kim H-too, said the .38 caliber re- volver Moon used in the attack was taken from the Osaka po- ice, 'and the police said it was one of two pistols stolen from ;heir armory on July 18 along with ammunition belts and handcuffs. Kim said Moon smuggled the pistol into Korea inside a radio. The prosecutor's office ques- :ioned Moon Friday and said he insisted he was acting alone in :he unsuccessful attempt Thurs- day to assassinate Park. A spokesman said, however, that a search for accomplices was on since there were indications le had been associated with left- ist movements. Except for the reference to leftist contacts, the govern- ment gave no indication of why Moon wanted to kill the president.
