Kashialos was preparing for a show in New York when the Turks invaded Cyprus on July 20.
The Greek Cypriot police reported that they killed a gunman of the EOKA-B Greek Cypriot underground army when he refused to surrender his automatic rifle. It was the first police shooting of an EOKA-B man since President Glafcos derides replaced guerilla leader Nikos Sampson as head of the Greek Cypriot government on July 22, a week after President Makarios was ousted in a coup supported by the guerillas.
Meanwhile, the leaders of Cyprus’ feuding Greek and Turkish communities tried to ease the suffering of nearly 200,000 refugees, starting a series of two-man, face-to-face talks set up by the United Nations.
derides, head of the island’s Greek community, and Vice-president Rauf Denktash, leader of Cyprus’ Turks, planned an evening meeting at the Ledra palace hotel along the “green line” dividing the capital of Nicosia.

lion for nonpublic, the same as last year.
Spending for higher education is estimated at $40 billion, with about $27 billion by public institution and $13 billion by private colleges.
Bell said the colleges are expected to confer about 1.3-million bachelor’s and higher degrees this coming year, the same as last.
The federal statistics indicate that education expenses will represent almost 8 percent of the gross national product and involve directly nearly 62-million Americans.
“Education will be the principal occupation of 29 percent of our population,” Bell said. “In fact, education is considered to be the country’s largest enterprise in terms of the number of people involved and the dollars spent.”
More than three-million persons will be employed in classroom instruction this fall, including 2.3-million teachers in elementary and secondary schools and more than 600,000 college instructors.
In addition, there will be about 300,000 superintendents, principals, supervisors and other instructional staff members.

50 percent vesting when an employe’s age and years of service equal 45. The final 50 percent would come in the next five years.
The bill requires that each company put enough money into its plan so that it is fully funded and able to pay all the pensions when the benefits come due.
A Peasion Benefit Guaranty Corp. is established under the labor department and funded by employer contributions to pay benefits if a pension plan fails or a company goes out of business.
The act creates a voluntary portability program under which an employe could carry with him his pension rights from one job to another and once a worker is vested, he may leave a company and return later without any loss of pension benefits.
It guarantees that a surviving spouse is entitled to at least 50 percent of the pension payments of a deceased worker if death comes after retirement.
It offers tax incentives to individual employes not in pension plans to set up their own retirement programs and to self-employed persons to improve their programs.
For the first time, the law fixes tough standards of conduct and accountability for persons administering pension plans. Plans must be certified by an actuary at least every three years.
Finally the bill requires that all employes be admitted to a pension plan when they reach age 25 and have at least one year of service with a company.
The new pension regulations are effective immediately for newly established retirement plans. Plans already in existence would be allowed until Dec. 31, 1975, to put the new vesting rules into effect.
Taggart Held on Assault Charge
Ronald Taggart, 25, of 1532 Vs Ellis boulevard NW, was charged Sunday with assault with intent to commit great bodily injury.

The incident happened at 10:25 a m. Sunday at Rcutzel’s residence.
Taggart was being held in the Linn county jail in lieu of $500 bond.
