K CITY FINAL 15 CENTS SSOCIATED TIMES Soviets Ask Conference On Cyprusj BULLETIN called Thursday for the onn- j veiling of an international I conference to solve the Cyprus j problem. It said the conference should be attended by the five per- manent members of the U.N. Security Council as well as Greece, Turkey and Cyprus. The five members are the U.S., Russia, China, France and Britain. By United Press International President Glafcos Clerides of Cyprus said Thursday that he would meet within 36 hours with Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash in what could be a first step toward a peace set- telement on ilhe war-torn Medi- terranean island. Clerides told newsmen the first meeting would be restric- ted to humanitarian problems but expressed hope that it would serve as the foundation for more extensive talks leading to peace. "It is the beginning of something which can develop into a big said the leader of the island's majority Greek Cypriots. Clerides also will fly to Athens Friday for consultations with the Greek government. Denktash said earlier that his meeting with Clerides could be held by Saturday, but Clerides said no time had been fixed yet. The two men, who nego- tiated on behalf of their com- munities for years before the overthrow of President Makari- os and still say they are friends, have not met since the collapse of the Geneva peace negotia- tions Aug. 13. Denklash had threatened ear- lier to declare the northern third of Cyprus an independent Turkish Cypriot republic unless Greece agrees to resume talks with Turkey for setting up self- governing enclaves on the island. Greek Cypriot guerillas opened a sabotage campaign behind the hacks of the pow- erful Turkish invasion army on the island Wednesday, blowing up a strategic water tower in the port city of Fa- mngusta.

A top Rockefeller aide, mean- while, said the nominee had also discussed with Ford the possibility of taking a major role in the administration's bat- tle against inflation and of be- coming head of the White House Domestic Council. But Hugh Morrow, the aide, said nothing final had been decided. Rockefeller's fast-paced schedule here Thursday was to include 19 courtesy calls on sen- ate and house members, includ- ing his one-time rival, Sen.
