Ten Cents Cease-Fire Takes Effect In Cyprus By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Six hours after a cease-fire officially went into effect, the United Nations forces on Cyprus reported all was quiet Monday night on the embattled island. But reports from the island said battles continued at least two hours after the cease-fire time, including a Turkish air attack on the eastern port of Famagusta. There were these other developments: -Britain set up a conference with Turkey and Greece in an effort to bring about a permanent peace. The meeting will be held in Geneva either Tuesday or Wednesday. -U.N. Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim decided to double the United Nations peacekeeping force of about 2,300 men on the Mediterranean island and met with the eight nations supplying troops about strengthening their contingents. -In Brussels, Belgium, foreign ministers of the nine European Common Market countries called on Turkey and Greece to observe the ceasefire and for the re-establishment of constitutional order on Cyprus. They said the maintenance of the present military regime on Cyprus isn't compatible with constitutional order. Greece and Turkey are associate members of the Common Market and get aid from it. -Reports swept Athens about a coup in the Greek capital, but the rumors about a possible attempt to overthrow the government could not be confirmed. -Evacuation from Cyprus of thousands of foreigners, including about 300 Americans, was begun. -On Cyprus large numbers of soldiers and civilians were believed to have been killed or wounded in the hostilities which began with Saturday's invasion by Turkey. No official figures were available. Waves of Turkish troops were coming into Cyprus all around Kyrenia on the northern coast, witnesses said. Many civilians, including some 250 foreign tourists, were stranded at Kyrenia hotels. The Turks claimed eight Greek vessels were trying to land troops in western Cyprus. Nicosia, the capital, was bombed by Turkish warplanes at dawn. Communications between Cyprus and the outside world were spotty. Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger told newsmen in Washington he expects the cease-fire to hold. Kissinger said the danger of war between Greece and Turkey, allies in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, had been overcome. The Pentagon in Washington said U.S. Navy helicopters evacuated 378 American citizens and Lebanese from Cyprius before nightfall on Monday and any others remaining on the island would be taken off British Now Borrowing From Iran LONDON (AP) - With the help of a $1.2-billion loan from oil-rich Iran, the British government has embarked on a new economic policy to harness the country's soaring inflation. Chancellor of the Exchequer Denis Healey announced the new economic program Monday and said it would include lower taxes and higher food subsidies to help consumers cope with rising prices. The program was revealed after an announcement in Tehran that Iran had agreed to loan Britain $1.2 billion in three separate credits over the next three years. Healey said the new money would go to boost Britain's state-run industries, which are running at a loss. But more important, government sources said, it allows the government to embark on an economic policy which is hoped will pump about $1.2 billion back into the economy, relieve the country's critical balance-of-payments deficit and ease inflation. "There now seems, at last, to be hope for relief from the upward pressures by the end of the year," Healey said. He added, "The first and main object is to attack inflation at its sources." Healey also announced the government will lift some dividend restraints imposed on private enterprise by raising the dividend ceiling from 5 to 12% per cent.

About 2Vz hours after the cease-fire deadline, U.N. Secretary-General Waldheim told a special Security Council session in New York that fighting was continuing at that time. He said the airport at Nicosia, Cyprus' capital, was attacked by Turkish jets and a U.N. installation was hit by a bomb, wounding a British soldier. He said fighting continued elsewhere. The Greeks living on Cyprus outnumber the Turks by about 4 to 1. They live in separate communities and Turkey said its invasion was to protect the island's Turkish residents. Heavy fighting was reported Monday before the truce deadline around the northern port of Kyrenia, in the area where the Turks landed on Saturday. The Greek Cypriots claimed they retained control of the port. Travelers reaching Nicosia from the northern coast before the cease-fire said the Turks controlled areas around Kyrenia and a corridor 10 miles wide leading to the Cypriot capital. Premier Bulent Ecevit of Turkey maintained, however, that Kyrenia was in Turkish control. Associated Press dispatches filed from Nicosia about three hours before the truce deadline reported heavy fighting was continuing and that Turkey was landing fresh troops on the northern coast. The Greek Cypriot radio claimed that a hotel was bombed by the Turks and that 21 foreign tourists were killed. The broadcast, monitored in Athens, Greece, identified the hotel as the Salamis Palace but did not say where it was. An area in southern Cyprus is called Salamis. There was no independent confirmation of the broadcast report. It was not known when the alleged attack took place. Britain announced a meeting with Greece and Turkey in Geneva either Tuesday or Wednesday on a new Cyprus peace settlement. The three countries are responsible for maintaining the independence of Cyprus, under the 1960 treaty establishing the island as a republic. Communications with Cyprus were spotty and slow. AP correspondent Holger Jensen reported from the Cypriot port of Kyrenia, the main Turkish beachhead for Saturday's invasion, that Turkish jets were bombing and strafing Greek Cypriot positions as both sides fought to improve their positions before the cease-fire deadline. At the same time, Greek Cypriot artillery was pounding Turkish positions on a mountain near Kyrenia.

GOP Counsel Garrison House Panel Finds New Voice WASHINGTON (AP) - The House Judiciary Committee was told Monday that even if it finds President Nixon engaged in impeachable conduct it should consider whether it would be in the best interest of the nation to allow him to remain in office. In an anti-impeachment brief and oral argument presented to the committee, minority counsel Sam Garrison said it is "not only proper but necessary for Congress, having concluded that an officer has engaged in conduct for which he could properly be impeached, then to step back and assess the situation more generally, to determine...whether the best interests of the country would be served by his removal or continuance in office." Garrison presented his argument as the committee moved toward the start of debate on whether to recommend impeachment of the President. Meanwhile, the House voted 346 to 40 to amend its rules to permit television and radio broadcasting of the debate which is scheduled to begin on Wednesday. The final decision was up to the committee. Votes on proposed articles of impeachment are expected to come up early next week. In San Clemente, Calif., Nixon and his chief Watergate defense lawyer, James D. St. Clair, met for a far-ranging discussion of impeachment. The House vote came after committee chairman Peter W. Rodino Jr., D-N.J., assured the House the committee debate would be broadcast from start to finish and would not be interrupted by commercials. At the start, each of the 38 committee members will have IS minutes to state his views, for a total of nearly 10 hours. Then, there will be another 20 hours' debate devoted to specific proposed articles of impeachment. During that period members will be able to offer amendments to any of the pending articles. Each member would have five minutes to speak on an article or motion. Garrison sought to counter the argument presented last week by John Doar, chief counsel of the impeachment inquiry, that the President's refusal to comply with committee subpoenas was undermining the ability of the House to conduct its inquiry and was threatening "the integrity of the impeachment process." "For this most fundamental reason the President's refusal to comply with the committee's subpoenas is itself grounds for impeachment," Doar argued. Garrison argued that "an apparent noncompliance with an impeachment committee's subpoena is the beginning not the end of the question." St. Clair: Coverup Is Focus Of Debate AP Wirephoto Jenner (foreground) sits as new counsel Garrison argues. LAGUNA BEACH, Calif. (AP) -Presidential lawyer James D. St. Clair said Monday he believes Congress will focus narrowly on the Watergate cover-up in its study of impeachment. He told a nationally broadcast news conference that "the evidence doesn't even come close to supporting any charge of misconduct" in other areas of impeachment controversy such as ITT, milk, wiretapping or use of the Internal Revenue Service. St. Clair talked to reporters after a two-hour meeting with President Nixon at the Western White House in nearby San Clemente. "I advised him in my judgment that if all the evidence is reviewed objectively, it would not sustain any of the charges," St. Clair said. St. Clair refused again to say if Nixon would obey a forthcoming Supreme Court decision concerning control of White Today's Index Calendar........................Page 2 Comics..........................Page 15 Crossword.......................Page i DearAbby.......................Page 4 Heloise..........................Page 8 Jeane Dixon.....................Page 3 Local News......................Page 9 Markets.........................Page 7 Sports...........................Page U TV Listings......................Page 5 Weather.........................Page 2 House tapes no matter what way such a decision might go. He said any answer to that question "would require speculation on my part leading to other questions." He also refused to say if he would continue serving the President if Nixon disobeyed a Supreme Court order. St. Clair touched on these other points: -A portion of a March 22, 1973, tape presented to the House Judiciary Committee last week was provided because "one witness seemed to me to shift testimony." He did not name the witness. -Impeachment inquiries "are essentially political proceedings. Therefore members are bound to apply political considerations to their decisions, but I do not think this means they would ignore the evidence." -The President had heard speculation about a 35-year prison term for G. Gordon Liddy when he used that figure in a March 22 conversation, the day before the sentence was pronounced. -Since Judiciary counsel John Doar and Albert Jenner have switched from an impartial to advocacy role, "one raises the question of what kind of advice this committee is going to get." St. Clair's news conference occurred just two days before the House Judiciary Committee was expected to begin final deliberations on proposed articles of impeachment.

Cleaning Up In California SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Artists, students, laborers, even a housewife are among thousands clamoring for coveted jobs - sweeping the streets and gutters of San Francisco for $17,000 a year. "These guys are going to be making almost as much as me," said Bernard Orsi, general manager of the civil service commission which has 750 inquiries and applications a day - but no openings. The city's 230 street sweepers already earn $12,000 annually. Next June they will earn $17,000 because a provision in the city charter ties their salaries to those of construction and industry in the area. A police patrolman makes $14,400 a year after four years experience. "It's not such a bad deal," said one applicant, John Larson, 22, a 200-pound college student who has studied business, criminology and physical education. "I couldn't come out of college and find a job that pays that much." Paula Lee, 24, a housewife and mother of two, said she's applying because "it's good money." "I am perfectly qualified for that job. As a housewife, I've got plenty of experience behind a broom," she said. Dawn Green, 22, a telephone company worker said: "I like a job where you can be outside and there's no pressure like you get in an office." The provision in the city charter has created a furor here over recently enacted pay raises. Mayor Joseph Alioto says it creates an "obvious inequity," and the city attorney has been asked for a legal opinion. An applicant must pass a civil service test, and a physical fitness test that requires lifting a 140-pound sack over his or her shoulders.
