Advocate (Newspaper) - February 3, 1964, Victoria, Texas 118th 269 THE VICTORIA ADVOCATE TELEPHONE m J-14J1 VICTORIA, TEXAS, MONDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 1964 Diplomats Push Plan For Cyprus Idea Opposed By President NICOSIA, Cyprus !sh and American diplomats worked feverishly Sunday lo ihange Cyprus President Maka- rio's opposition to proposals for J NATO police force on this ern- ontlled island. They saw several iopeful signs. One was thai the bearded prc- did not reject the plan out- right when it was formally itibmillcd to him Sunday morn- Ing by Cyril Pickard, lirilish un- dersecretary of slalc for Com- monwealth affairs. He had (old Pickard and U.S. Ambassador Wilkins on Saturday, before Ihe formal sub- mission, that (he plan was un- acceptable. Chief Objection Another sign was that Greek Cypriot delegates postponed Ihcir return to the London con- ference on Cyprus whore they hail been expected to give a last, final refusal of Ihe plan. Greek Cypriots and Iheir press have vehemently opposed ihe plan which would increase the lirilish peacekeep- ing force to men drawn Irom all North Atlantic Treaty Organization countries including the United States. Cyprus Vice President Fazil1 Kulchuk, member of the Turkish community, said lie ac- cepted the plan in principle, Faco-Saving Chief reason for Greek Cypri- ot objection is that the proposals contain no clause for a political solution which would ban parti- tion of (lie island between Greeks and Turks.

United Slates' moon exploration program hit another snag Sun- day when the camera-carrying Ranger 6 crashed into the moor without televising a single pic- ture. The B04-pound spacecraft, launched three days ago from Cape Kennedy, performed beau- tifully up to the final 10 minutes of flight, when its six cameras were supposed to begin taking a series of pictures from 900 miles high down to impact But they failed lo operate. First Close-Up Scientists had hoped the pic- tures would give them their first close-tip look at the moon's sur- face and help them select a site for manned Apollo moonship landings later in this decade. It was the sixth straight fail- ure in the Ranger program which so far has cost some million, figured at about million a shot.

In the Senate (ax debate, ad- ministration supporters were concentrating most of their ef- forts on defeating a college edu- cation amendment of Sen. Abra- ham A.
