According to United Nations projections, the major world areas and indicates when the population earth's population will increase over the next century should stop growing (around the year 2120 for Africa, on a scale and with a speed unprecedented in history. 2070 for Europe and 2110 for South Asia.) 1850 1900 1930 195060 70 80 90 2000 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90210010 20 power curb in works New York Times Service WASHINGTON Seeking to restrict a century of expanding presidential power, a special Senate committee is expected to introduce legislation next week to repeal wide ranging presidential emergency authority and establish new standards of public accountability for the president. Under emergency proclamation dating back to 1933 and still in force, the president has the legal power to censor the air waves, institute martial law, take over office buildings, seize commodities, and control ships, planes and trains. Under existing law, the president is not required to inform Congress or otherwise publish his decisions and orders unless he alone designates these decisions as either "executive orders" or "presidential proclamations." In the words of the report of the Senate Special Committee on National Emergencies and Delegated Emergency powers: "There is no formal accountability for the most i crucial executive decisions Oilier affecting the lives of citizens and the freedom of individuals and institutions." The co chairmen of this panel. Sen. Charles Mathias, and Sen. Frank Church, are expecting to meet with President Ford this week. They are seeking White House support for the new legislation. They already have the unanimous backing of their committee members. They have worked closely with and expect the support of Attorney General William B. Saxbe and other executive branch legal officers. Mathias predicted in an interview that the bill would "sail through the House, even before the next Congress, unless there is active opposition from the White House."

Most of the world's soybean protein continues to be reserved for feed to barnyard animals in relatively rich countries. These animals chickens, pigs and cows produce much less total protein in the form of meat, milk and eggs, than the soybeans have in them themselves. But because the affluent third of the world's population continues its willingness to pay steadily rising prices for this tastier animal protein, it commands far greater market attention than those seeking soy protein for direct human consumption to stave off malnutrition. In effect, the economics of taste continue to far outweigh the economics of need. Edythe L. Robertson, a nutritionist with ARA World Food Systems, Inc., told an American soybean convention in Houston this week that although direct human consumption is slowly growing, only three per cent of the world's soybean protein is used in human food production.

AP special correspondent Peter Arnett spent Friday on the Turkish Cypriot side and AP correspondent Alex Efty on the Greek Cypriot side. Here is how they saw the ceasefire affecting both sides. By PETER ARNETT AND ALEX EFTY NICOSIA (AP) The dis- appointment and frustration of fleeing Greek-Cypriots mixed curiously with the jubi- lation of Cypriots of Turkish origin as another ceasefire went into effect on this war- torn island.

Friday was a black day for the half-million Greek-Cy- priots, especially an esti- mated refugees who moved out of areas occupied or threatened by the invading Turkish army. They expressed gloom to AP correspondent Alex Efty over the inability of their own poorly-equipped conscript army to resist the Turkish on- slaught. There was resent- ment that no one in the world, especially the "other Greece." came to their aid. "We never expected that Greece would abandon us to this fate, or, for that matter, the other great defenders of freedom in the said Yannis Papadopoulis, a busi- nessman fleeing from Nicosia. In glaring contrast was the reaction of the Tur- kish-Cypnots, who cheered the Turks along their every advancing mile as they cut off a third of the island for the Turkish population. This done, the Turks accepted a ceasefire Friday, the third on the embattled Mediterranean island in a month. Particularly joyous were 13.000 Turkish-Cypriots who had been besieged in the old city of Famagusta since the July 20 Turkish invasion. When Turkish tanks fought their way through Greek posi- tions outside the medieval walls to rumble triumphantly through the main gate Thurs- day night, the Turks inside rushed to kiss them in wild celebration. "We were saved from ex- a police ser- geant told AP special corre- spondent Peter Arnett as he approached the walls early Friday. "The Greeks planned to murder us all with mor- tars. The native Turkish popu- lation came to Cyprus 400 years ago when the Ottomans incorporated Greek Cyprus into their empire. Since Cyprus gained independence from British colonial rule 14 years ago, however, the Greek-Cypriot majority has dominated with the help of mainland Greece. Now the tables have been reversed because of mainland Turkey's coming to help with jets, tanks and troops equipped with modern weap- onry. This reversal is expected to have devastating con- sequences for the Cyprus economy, overwhelmingly in Greek hands. Tourism made up more than 30 per cent of the country's foreign exchange in the past. The tourist jewels of Famagusta and Kyrenia, with 90 per cent of Cyprus's hotels, are held now by the Turks. The huge transfer of popu- lation resulting in scores of thousands of Greek-Cypriot refugees poses immense prob- lems of unemployment, re- habilitation and housing. Pop-top cans unwanted VICTORIA (CP) The cabinet has set back the ban on pop top beverage cans by four months to Jan. 1 next year. After that date, no one shall sell "any beer, ale, cider, carbonated beverages or drinks in a metal container so designed and constructed that any part of the container is detachable without the use of a can opener." Originally, new regulations under the Litter Act which were passed by Cabinet earlier set Sept. 1 as the effective date, but the order gave no reason for the delay. A year ago, Recreation Minister Jack Radford said pop top cans were to be banned because the detachable rings were dangerously sharp, and posed a hazard to children and bathers at beaches and picnic areas.
