Cyprus Shooting Stops After Turks Seize Part of Island By THE ASSOCFATED PRESS Turkish invasion forces seized full control of the norlh- crn third of Cyprus on Friday and their advance sent, the is- land's Greek Cypriot govern- ment fleeing from Nicosia. Then, by agreement, both sides stopped shooting a' about dusk. Turkey appeared to have conquered all tlie territory il sought in order to form a iiew autonomous state for the Turkish Cypriot minority on Ihe island outnumbered'4-1' by the Greek community. The cease-fire took hold about dusk except for sporadic firing in Nicosia. A United Na- tions spokesman in New York said the firing was along Ihe. "Green Line" that separates Ihe capital's communities of Turkish and Greek Cypriote.

"1 would prefer lo talk in Wash- ington." In AI hens, some 5.MO Creeks demonslrated against U.S. policy. Shouts of "Kissin- ger, and "U.S. Navy out" were sounded in the capital. Other anli-Ameri- can demonstrations broke out in Salonika and on the Greek island of Crete in Ihe Aegean.
