The President won quick gressional passage of the bill, which he requested two weeks ago. He reiterated Saturday the administration would that not controls. "VVill Be Won" He described the bill as moni-, toring legislation to give "gui-l dance in very broad terms to! management and labor so they don't take advantage of a free economy in this critical situa- tion." Exchange Warnings On Cyprus By AsswiuU'd Press The Greek Cypriot president of Cyprus, Glafcos Clerides, Sat- urday threatened guerilla war against Turkish invasion troops if a crisis solution is not forth- coming. Turkish Information Minister Orhan Birgit said Turkish forces would take "every necessary measure" to counter a guerilla campaign. Such attacks, he) said, would create "a dangerous and prave situation" and "delay the demilitarization of the is- land and peace." Sources familiar with Turkish military plans and thinking said Turkish reaction to guerilla war would be harsh and merciless. Birgit said Turkey sincerely hopes Clerides will not follow up his threat. Rejects Renewal The exchange of threats came after Greece rejected renewing the tripartite Cyprus peace talks in Geneva. Foreign Min- is t e r George Mavros said Greece will instead back a Sovi- et proposal for an 18-nation con- ference. Clerides met in Athens Satur- day with Greek President Con- stantine Caramanlis to discuss the fate of Greek Cypriot refu- gees. Caramanlis promised Greece would cover the needs of the es- timated Greek Cypriots who have been displaced from their home by the invasion and are seeking refuge in the south. The Greek government state- ment said more than tons of foodstuffs have been shipped to Cyprus and another 850 tons are scheduled for shipment within a few days. U. S. Stand The Commerce Ministry an- nounced that Greek shipowners have contributed more than million to the government for the Cyprus cause. In Washington, Secretary of State Kissinger told a Greek- American delegation Friday that the U. S. favors continued independence for Cyprus.

Jurist Stays Ban of Fund Impoundment WASHINGTON (AP) Fed- eral officials may continue to impound highway funds until an appeals court has ruled on the question, Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall has decided. Marshall's order Friday set aside temporarily a decision May 7 by U. S. District Judge Robert Hemphill in Columbia, S. C., that blocked the govern- ment from withholding highway funds for South Carolina. Hemphill said the impound- ments were unconstitutional and illegal, but the government has appealed to the U. S. court of appeals in Richmond, Va. Mar- shall's order will remain in ef- fect until that court has ruled. U. S. Solicitor General Robert Bork requested the order, say- ing impoundments of appropri- ated funds are "a settled prac- tice" in fighting inflation. South Carolina officials filed suit in 1972 challenging the high- way impoundments. Bork took issue with Hemp- hill's finding that impound- m e n t s disrupted long-range highway planning. The govern- ment official said the practice "merely extends the period over which the plan will be complet- Warning Issued on Ash and Rush I ireS The bill sets up a staff of; about 25 at a cost of ?1 million. The council will include Roy Ash, director of the Office of Management and Budget, and Kenneth Rush, presidential eco- nomic counselor. Ash told a Wall Street lun- cheon that the new administra- tion would "cool the fevers of inflation even if it generates more unemployment than we'd like." Representatives of 11 million elderly Americans told Ford in a White House meeting Friday that inflation is the "No. 1 ter- ror for older people." Executive Director Jack Os- sofsky, 49, of the National Council on Aging quoted Ford as saying he is reviewing problems of the aged. Summit Pledge He said Ford pledged to in- clude a representative of the el- derly at the economic summit. Mary Mullen, 74, of Laguna Beach, Calif., president of the National Assn. of Retired Teachers, said Ford "seemed sincere in making every effort to try to solve some of the problems" of senior citizens and promised to keep his door open to them. The delegation of elderly Americans, jokingly presented Ford, 61, with a gold-encased magnifying glass. Coinciden- tally, less than an hour later the near-sighted President was measured for contact lenses. Other developments Friday: Commenting on offer of Michigan Gov.

The San Francisco Examiner said authorities believe the wanted trio went to the con- vict's Imother for help after a May 17 Shootout in Los Angeles in which six of !their companions were slain. The paper said police have speculated that the woman found a house in a racially integrated neighborhood for Miss Hearst and Bill and Emily Harris. However, the Examiner said that if such a hideout exists, authorities have not found it. The Examiner story by Ed Montgomery, Pulitzer Prize-win- ning investigative reporter, said the Harrises visited the black convict and his brother in prison and became acquainted with the prisoner's mother. Neither the dentity of the convict nor de- tails of his crime were revealed. Wounded Knee Attorneys Marshal Still r j j. D Hasn't Given Jailed; Courfroom Brawl M. ST. PAUL (AP) The eight- month-old Wounded Knee trial exploded Friday as Defense At- torneys William Kunstler and Mark Lane were jailed and spectators and federal marshals had a fistfight in the back of the courtroom. Kunstler and Lane spent Fri- day night in the city jail but no spectators were arrested. The attorneys were held for con- tempt of court after a shouting match with U. S. District Judge Fred Nichol. They were released Saturday after a long meeting of Kenneth Tilsen, one of their defense team cohorts, with Nichol. The judge said he would make a statement Monday. The melee began with Kunstler questioning an Ameri- can Indian Movement deserter, Louis Moves Camp, who ap- peared as a rebuttal witness in She trial of AIM Leaders Russell Means and Dennis Banks, ac- cused of assault, larceny and conspiracy in connection withj :he 71-day armed occupation of Wounded Knee, S. D., last year. brought a snicker from someone in the audience. Nichol ordered marshals to remove spectators from one row of seats. The spectators, most of them AIM President Nixon's testimony in members, refused to budge, leaving marshals to haul them out.

They said the action was de- igned specifically to assure hat no order would go to any units for any sort of action against congress during the ime between a house vote for mpeachment and a senate trial. Past Behavior The Boston Globe Said Schles- mger was in frequent communi- cation with Secretary of State Kissinger and the White House chief of staff, Alexander Haig. It quoted ona source as say- ing the one concern was Nixon's past behavior "during violent military action." When navy warships mined Haiphong harbor in 1972, the Kunstler asked a question that The marshals and spectators jegan fighting and Kunstler and Lane began shouting at Nichol. 'Judge, you brought this yelled Kunstler over the com- motion. Nichol responded angrily, "I did not bring it on! You brought t on and you know very well you did, Mr. Kunstler. You make one more statement like :hat and you're going to jail." "You might as well send us, replied Kunstler, who was echoed by Lane. Nichol, his face flushed, or- dered the attorneys removed. The fighting continued until a marshal sprayed a chemical ir- ritant at one non-moving pro- .ester. Lane said in a telephone inter- a Watergate cover-up trial has not been served, even as a sec- ond subpoena is reported on the way. Los Angeles Marshal Gaylord Campbell has held the Water- gate subpoena since he received it by mail Monday from Wash- ington. It was obtained by attor- neys for John Ehrlichman, Nix- on's former domestic adviser. The marshal, asked on Friday about the status of the subpoe- na, said simply "I have no com- ment until service is complet- ed." Earlier in the week, he said he was negotiating with Nixon's representatives on "a mutual agreement on time and place for service" of the subpoena which must be served to Nixon personally. OKicr Suhpocna Globe's source said, Nixon cul- tivated the image of a man "who might do anything." "If the Russians thought he might do anything, that was fine with the source said.
