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.

Senate Votes 5-BiliionCut In Arms Fu WASHINGTON (AP) The senate has trimmed military appropriations nearly S5 billion, while balking at proposals to cut even more deeply into the j Pentagon budget. In passing the defense spend- ing bill Wednesday and sending it to a conference with the house, the senate first rejected an amendment placing an billion spending ceiling on the Pentagon for fiscal 1975. The amendment by Sen. Eagleton (D-Mo.) lost 57 to 35. Also defeated was an amend- ment by Sen. Proxmire (D-Wis.)

That is some 55 billion less than the amount requested bv former President Nixon. LOS ANGELES (AP) A man, accused of being the "alphabet bomber" refuses to talk with police, just as he has for years with other people who thought he was a mute. His landlady, however, said he had talked frequently with her and was articulate, and po- lice said other persons also had heard him speak.

But the former New York gov- ernor emphasized in talking to reporters when he flew here Wednesday night after speaking to a Republican dinner in New- port, R. I., that "it really de- fends on the President" and that no firm policy has been decided. For, Not Against Earlier Wednesday, in Provi- dence, R. L, Rockefeller sought to assure congressional Demo- crats that his campaigning won't be directed solely against them. "I'll campaign for people, but not against anybody. I've never been a campaigner who slashed out at the other he said. 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. Goldwater "Petty Squabbles" Goldwater .said on Tuesday that some GOP on conservatives were upset when Ford chose Rockefeller. Asked about this on Wednesday Rockefeller said than other defendants, he was the time for national in an interview Wednesday.

Night Auditor Dead were Luis Trujillo, 22, assistant night auditor and bell captain at the motel, and Danny Deters, 21, a security guard. A motel guest, John Stewart, 22, of Lincoln, Neb., was wounded in (he chest, and an- other motel employe, Charles Nolle, 28, was shot in the face. Stewart was listed in fair con- dition at Iowa Methodist hos- )ital. Nolte's condition was .isted as serious at Iowa Lu- .heran hospital. Police said the bandit walked into the motel shortly after 2 a.m., brandished a .38 caliber Mstol and demanded money. They said he fired five or six shots. "Real Tragedy" The motel manager, Paul Verciglio, called the shootings senseless and "a real tragedy." Police said the gunman opened fire after he was given the money he demanded and wounded everybody in the lob- by before he fled. Patrolman Steven Morris, the first policeman on the scene, said he found Peters' body in the lobby and the three others who were shot behind the motel desk. Verciglio said Peters man- aged to reach a house phone and call a bartender, Dodd Postma, in a lounge in the mo- tel to ask for help before he iied. He said Peters was in the lounge talking to Postma when Ihe gunman entered the motel and entered the lobby when the shooting started. Shot Once Dr. R. C. Woofers, Polk county medical examiner, said Trujillo was shot once in the head, and Peters was shot twice and possibly three times. Trujillo was identified as the son of Keith county, Neb., Sheriff Luis Trujillo. Stewart had come to Des Moincs from Lincoln to work at radio station KFMG-FM. He was to have started his new job Friday. He formerly worked for station KFMQ-FM in Lincoln. He is the son of Dr. Frank Stewart, a Lincoln pediatrician, saying "this is and a former University of proposals under Nebraska student. along withj Police Capt.
