Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - August 22, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Weather— Mostly fair tonight with lows around till. Sunny Friday with highs 75 lo 80. VOLUME 92 NUMBER 225 mmU CITY FINAL 15 CENTS * CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA, THURSDAY, AUGUST 22, 1974 ASSOCIATED PRESS, UPI, NEW YORK TIMES Soviets Ask Conference On Cyprus BULLETIN MOSCOW (AP) - Russia called Thursday for the convening of an international conference to solve the Cyprus problem. It said the conference should be attended by the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council as well as Greece. Turkey and Cyprus. The five members are the U.S., Russia, China, France and Britain. By United Press International President Glafcos derides of Cyprus said Thursday that he would meet within 36 hours with Turkish Cypriot    leader Rauf Denktash in what could be a first step toward a peace set-telement on the war-torn Mediterranean island. derides    told    newsmen    the first meeting would be restricted to humanitarian problems but expressed hope that it would serve as    the    foundation    for more extensive talks leading to peace. “it is    the    beginning    of something which can develop into a big step,” said the leader of the island’s majority Greek Cypriots. derides also will fly to Athens Friday for consultations with the Greek government. Denktash said earlier that his meeting with derides could be held by Saturday, but derides said no time had been fixed yet. The two men, who negotiated on behalf of their communities for years before the overthrow of President Makari-os and still say they are friends, have not met since the collapse of the Geneva peace negotiations Aug. 13. Denktash had threatened earlier to declare the northern third of Cyprus an independent Turkish Cypriot republic unless Greece agrees to resume talks with Turkey for setting up selfgoverning enclaves on the island. Greek C y p r i o t guerillas opened a sabotage campaign behind the backs of the powerful Turkish invasion army on the island Wednesday, blowing up a strategic watrr tower in the port city of Famagusta. The guerilla attack Wednesday night sent hundreds of thousands of gallons of fresh water cascading into the streets of the ancient eastern city, where drinking water has been scare for nearly a month. Greek Cypriot police hunting for the killers of U.S. Ambassador Rodger Davies held an unidentified person in custody Thursday in connection with the anti-American riot that led to the shooting of the diplomat. Two other persons were arrested Wednesday but were released after questioning. The police refused to give any information about them and would not say whether they were among the three persons for whom warrants were issued in connection with the riot.

A motel guest, John Stewart, 22, of Lincoln, Neb., was wounded in the chest, and another motel employe, Charles Nolle, 28, was shot in the face. Stewart was listed in fair condition at Iowa Methodist hospital. Nolte’s condition was listed as serious at Iowa Lutheran hospital.
