Exchange Warnings On Cyprus
By Associated Press
The Greek Cypriot president of Cyprus, Glafcos derides, Saturday threatened guerilla war against Turkish invasion troops if a crisis solution is not forthcoming.
Turkish Information Minister Orhan Birgit said Turkish forces would take “every necessary measure” to counter a guerilla campaign. Such attacks, he said, would create “a dangerous and grave situation” and “delay the demilitarization of the island and peace.”
Sources familiar with Turkish military plans and thinking said Turkish reaction to guerilla war would be harsh and merciless.
Birgit said Turkey sincerely hopes derides will not follow up his threat.
The exchange of threats came after Greece rejected renewing the tripartite Cyprus peace talks in Geneva. Foreign Minis t e r George Mavros said Greece will instead back a Soviet proposal for an 18-nation conference.
derides met in Athens Saturday with Greek President Constantine Caramanlis to discuss the fate of Greek Cypriot refugees.
Caramanlis promised Greece would cover the needs of the estimated 150.000 Greek Cypriots who have been displaced from their home by the invasion and arc seeking refuge in the south. I
The Greek government statement said more than 1.500 tons of foodstuffs have been shipped to Cyprus and another 850 tons: are scheduled for shipment within a few days.
U. S. Stand
The Commerce Ministry announced that Greek shipowners' have contributed more than $100 million to the government for. the Cyprus cause.
In Washington. Secretary of; State Kissinger told a Greek-! American delegation Friday I that the U. S. favors continued independence for Cyprus.
George Douris of New York said Kissinger denied any pro-Turkish bias by the state department. “The secretary told, us he’d do everything possible] to bring about a solution consistent with Greek honor and Greek national dignity,” Douris; said.
Although the U. S. has never taken a position favoring partition of Cyprus, department officials have publicly endorsed “a greater degree of autonomy" for its Turkish minority.
A department spokesman, Robert Anderson, said the U. S. is not considering a shift in NATO military' defenses because of Greece’s military withdrawal from the alliance.
Turkish Premier Bulent Ece-vit had said his country could compensate for any resulting weakness in U. S. defenses in the Mediterranean.
“We consider Greece an important and valuable member of the alliance and we are not thinking of any alternative means of protecting its southern flank.” Anderson said in response.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Pentagon officials kept close watch during the last days of Richard Nixon’s presidency to make certain no military units became involved in the process of removing him from office, informed sources said Saturday.
They said Secretary of Defense Schlesingcr and the joint chiefs of staff kept close watch to make certain no orders were given military units outside the normal chain of command.
They said the action was designed specifically to assure that no order would go to any units for any sort of action against congress during the time between a house vote for impeachment and a senate trial.
The Boston Globe said Schles-inger was in frequent communication with Secretary of State Kissinger and the White House chief of staff, Alexander Haig.
It quoted one source as saying the one concern was Nixon s past behavior “during vidlcnt military action.”
When navy warships mined Haiphong harbor in LT72, the Globe's source said, Nixon cultivated the image of a man “who might do anything.”
“If the Russians thought he might do anything, that was fine with him,” the source said.

NEEDHAM. Mass. (AP) -Two armed men wearing stocking masks held a bank manager’s wife and 2-year-old daughter hostage and forced him to clean out his bank’s vault of an estimated $100,000.
But thc scheme collapsed as an off-duty fireman spotted the bandits escaping from the manager’s home and another found the money before thc robbers could pick it up.
The episode began Friday morning when Stephen George. 37, left for work.
Police said two men waiting outside his front door forced him back inside and made him lie on the floor while they played a tape recordng giving him instructions.
Mrs. George. 27. was tied up and left on the bed Their daughter was left to her own devices. All the telephones were ripped out.
The recording directed George to drive to the bank, open the vault and put all the money — except coins and $! bills — in his wife’s suitcase.
He was told to take the suitcase and two tellers with him to a dropoff point described on a note in an envelope he was to open after leaving the bank.
After George left for the bank, the robbers took off for the pickup point But Fireman James Hopkins, a next-door neighbor, saw the men running from the house, telephoned police and gave chase

The sources said the action was merely normal contingency planning “in the event of improbable circumstances.”
“There was never the slightest indication from within or without the military establishment of any thought of involvement by the military in any action contrary to the constitutional processes,” they said.
The action by Schlesinger and the joint chiefs was based on hypothetical situations that could arise during the period when Nixon’s hold on the presidency was not clear, the sources said.
A defense department spokesman quoted Schlesinger as saying: “In keeping with my statutory responsibilities, I did assure myself that there would be no question about the proper constitutional and legislative chain of command, and there was never any question.”
The sources said the hypothetical circumstances never arose and thc normal lines of communication functioned well during the period of transition.
They said no special meetings were held between the secretary and the joint chiefs to make plans for tightening the lines of authority. Instead word was passed that no military commander would take an order that came from the White House or elsewhere that did not come down through military channels.
No evidence turned up of any plot of any kind involving the military, the sources said.

Man Is Nurse Of the Year
CHICAGO (AP) - A man has beaten out 140 registered women nurses at Swedish Covenant hospital here in being named Nurse of the Year.
Steven Kaufman, 26, was voted the honor by interns and resident doctors.
Kaufman, connected with the hospital for six years, was appointed one of five nursing supervisors in 1972, the first man named to such a position in the hospital's 87-year history
“I was surprised and very honored to be voted Nurse of the Year,” said Kaufman, whose wife works at the hospital is a doctor’s .secretary.
