DYNAN THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP)—The North Atlantic pact foreign ministers today headed off a potential conflict between Greece and Turkey, but they failed to heal differences between France and the other members on the future of NATO. In winding up their spring session they pledged their best efforts at ending the cold war with the Soviet Union. Yet they noted in their official communique that little progress could be expected unless the Soviets permit the reunification of Ger-i many on a basis of self-deter-1 mination. 5 Killed As Plane Hits Home Area LAS VEGAS, Nev.

Turning to the immediate problem of Cyprus, the ministers expressed concern at the Greek-Turkish Cypriot fighting and said NATO would support fully U.N. efforts to bring peace to the troubled island. Some of the concern over Cyprus wras eased earlier in the day w'hen Greece and Turkey agreed to accept the mediation of the NATO secretary-general in their bitter dispute over the eastern Mediterranean island. Storm Damage Minor As Inch Of Rain Falls Although lightning flashed intermittently and the rains fell most of yesterday, very little damage resulted and power shortages were few. The rain totaled an inch. The Ohio Power Co. stated today that only a few line fuses in the vicinity of County Road 81 and near Strasburg went out as a result of the lightning. The General Telephone Co. said they are receiving twice the normal number of service calls, most of them concerning tree    limbs    across telephone lines. Dover Service Director H. S.

McNamara was asked by newsmen how long he thinks the war will last. He replied that it will be “a long war, a hard war—the path to victory will be long.” He said, however, that “I firmly believe that persistent execution” of plans will lead to eventual success. The Pentagon chief also told newsmen plans are being developed to more than double the personnel of the Viet Nam air force in a few months. The Vietnamese air force now has about 400 pilots. To another question, McNa-; mara replied that the size of the U.S. training force in Viet Nam is sufficient at the present, but that if more men are needed to help in the expansion of the ground and air forces Viet Nam the program of replacing the present T38 and B26 planes with the Navy-designed Skyraider aircraft. McNamara said the types of planes sent to Viet Nam were chosen for two reasons — because they would be useful in the guerrilla type war; because they were intended for operation by the Vietnamese.

(AP) - Exile forces say their attack on a sugar mill and port in eastern Cuba is just the beginning in their war of sabotage and nerves aimed at toppling Fidel Castro’s Communist regime. The Revolutionary Recovery Movement, a military action group, said in its “first war communique” Wednesday that a combined raid by seaborne commandos and guerrillas already in the hills gained control of the port of Pilon for three hours and left the sugar mill burning. It said other raids would come soon. Prime Minister Castro in a statement acknowledged the attack, but said it came from a ship standing at sea and not from ground forces. Castro’s angry comment was broadcast by Havana Radio about 15 hours after the attack, which the exiles said took place at 3:50 a.m. Wednesday. The communique did not give the number of the attacking force but listed commandos, frogmen, combat engineers, signal corps and torpedo units, as well as guerrillas, as participants.

Rothacher, 44, of 521 Ridge Rd., New Philadelphia, this morning pleaded innocent in Southern County Court to a rape charge filed by the father of a 14-year-old Uhrichsville girl. Judge Richard Musgrave ordered the man returned to County Jail in lieu of $5,000 bond. Rothacher asked for time to retain an attorney, Rothacher, jailed yesterday by Chief Deputy John Barlock, made a statement, in which he contended the girl went with him willingly. The attack allegedly occurred late Tuesday night or Wednesday morning at an “undetermined location” about 8 miles out of Dennison. Deputies said Rothacher picked the girl up near the railroad station at Dennison. It was reported Rothacher talked to the girl earlier Tuesday and that she gave him her telephone number. Dennison police notified deputies at 4:31 Wednesday morning after the girl was reported missing, but the alert was canceled about 2 hours later when she returned home. Rothacher, formally charged with “unlawful and forcible rape,” turned himself in at the Sheriff Department yesterday afternoon after he learned he was being sought. Judge Musgrave indicated that a hearing will be set up within a week if Rothacher does not retain counsel.
