Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - September 7, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Partly cloudy with i: h a n c e of thunder- storms through Sun- chiy. ]avt tonight mid 511s. High Sunday, up- per 70s. VOLUME 92 NUMBElfST CITY FINAL CEDAK HAPJDS, IOWA, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 1974 ASSOCIATED PRESS, UPI, NEW YORK TIMES Gazelle Leased Wires Turkish and Greek Cypriot leaders have agreed to ex- change military and civilian prisoners and lists of thousands of refugees in the first Cyprus accord signed since the Geneva talks broke down last month. The agreement came on Fri- day as Glafcos Clerides, the Greek Cypriot president ol Cyprus, and Rauf Denktash, the Turkish Cypriot leader, met in the war-torn Ledra Palace hotel near the dividing line between the Greek and Turkish Cypriot communities of Nicosia. But the agreement evidently did little to restore peace to the island. Turkish troops under the cover of heavy rifle fire, Friday pushed westward again along the coast, a Greek Cypriot government spokes- man said Saturday. He said at least two Greek Cypriot national guardsmen were wounded in a bitter ex- change of gunfire with the ad- vancing Turks late Friday night. He did not specify how far the Turks advanced. Turkish Warning In Ankara, meanwhile, Tur- kish Prime Minister Bulent Ecc- vit warned that further delays in negotiating a political solu- tion for Cyprus could leave the island permanently divided. "Life on the island cannot wait indefinitely and adminis- tration in both zones would have to take shape and be consoli- dated so that eventually there would be no room left for a fed- eral roof to join these two au- tonomous administrations." Ece- vit told Associated Press corre- spondent Nick Ludington in an interview. Ecevit accused Greece of stalling in resuming the peace talks because he said they "may have in mind the annexa- tion of the remaining part of Cyprus to Greece." The Greek guvernmunl and Clerides have repeatedly vowed they will not resume discussions on the future of Cyprus until the Turks withdraw from some oc- cupied territory on the island. Weekly Talks The meeting between Clerides and Denktash behind the blown- out windows of the Ledra Pal- ace now a barracks for Cana- dian United Nations troops was a resumption of weekly talks the two leaders have agreed to hold. The talks had been suspended four days ago. The agreement on Friday called for the exchange of an eslimaled prisoners and ci- vilian detainees and lists of thousands of persons missing behind battle lines on bolh President: Will Beat Inflation by July, '76 WASHINGTON (AP) Pres- ident Ford, indicating anew that he expects no quick cure, has pledged lo bring inflation under control before the nation's 200th birthday on July 4, 1976. But the first solid proposal to come out of the White House economic summit pre- I i m i n a r i e s encountered prompt resistance from two of the administration's top eco- nomic officials. A majority of the.28 econo- mists who sat around a table in the East Room with President Ford Thursday concluded the time is right for loosening up a little on the Federal Reserve Board's tight money policy. "Short-Term" Relief But on Friday, Alan Green- span, chairman of the Pres- ident's Council of Economic Ad visers, said a loosening of the money spigots now would only produce "a short-term sense o well-being." Three months lo a year later "almost certainly the increaset money supply would put us bad in the current situation if no he told a White House news briefing. And in a Dallas speech, Trea Ford Planning Review Board For Amnesty WASHINGTON (AP) Pres- ident Ford says he will cstab lish a national review board to consider amnesty for Vietnam- era draft dodgers and desert rs.

'Ford Cautious Addressing a dinner on day night ending a reconvening of the First Conti- nental Congress in Philadelphia, Ford said of his still evolving economic policy, "We seem to move cautiously and loo deliberately." But he said no one should underestimate America's ability to battle "the tyranny of dou- ble-digit which he de- scribed as "our common enemy in 1974." Ford did not spell out what policies he will adopt in his anti- inflation program, but he told the diners in a yellow and white striped tent set up behind Independence Hall: "We are going after, one and all, Democrats, Republicans and independents, the public enemy of inflation in 1974 and we will lick him before July 4, 1976." Old Problem Ford noted that at the session of the Continental Congress 200 years to the day before he spoke, "the colonial. delegates wrestled with their common problems of skyrocketing prices, shrinking purchasing power, shortages, hoarding anc financial speculation." The Chief Executive said thai "the men of 1774 were inflation fighters before they took up arms against the British red- coats."

The National Weather Ser- vice called the storm "ex- tremely dangerous." It said Carmen was expected to strike the Gulf Coast some- where along the 125 miles be- tween Grand Isle, La., and Mobile, Ala. Carmen was moving north at 12 to 15 m.p.h., and was expect- ed to maintain that speed and direction during the day, fore- casters said. They said Carmen was likely to increase in size and strength.
