U.S. beef ban end awaits Ottawa nod By DAVID MacDONALD Herald London Bureau GENEVA Turkey is try- ing to get a Canadian-style federation for but Greece rejects the idea utterly This clash is the central rea- son why the three-country Cyprus peace talks here have had such a shaky start and why they will continue to be difficult when the first stage ends and civil servants begin working on details. Failure to find general com- mon ground on what will happen after a full ceasefire has caused the Turkish government to refuse so far to agree with Greece and Britain that the ceasefire must first be solid before other topics can be tackled Britain has been taking a neutral applying blame equally to the Greeks and Turks and emphasizing that everything should be subor- dinated to keeping the guns silent Despite public messages ol respect between Athens and Ankara by the two prime ministers the legacy of cen- turies of mutual distrust has made the two countries approach each other like cautious prizefighters in the talks Behind the current crisis there is the memory for both sides of the recurring tension towards each other since the 1960 treaty guaranteeing Cyprus independence was signed by Britain Greece and Turkey and there is the contin- uing dispute over oil drilling rights in the Aegean Turkish sources say their federation proposal is the minimum they could agree to in order to discharge their responsibility to the Turkish- Cypriot minority on the island One Turkish diplomat said best solution for regional peace is the es- tablishment of a federated and independence Cyprus state. In this federative state the Turkish community will have equal participation rights in the sovereignty of state administration Implicit in such an arrange- ment he would be move- ment of populations to end the current situation in which the Turks are scattered across the island in 73 enclaves. Asked whether the Turkish- Cypnots would not resent such moves he replied 1 There is no other way in which we can guarantee their safety against attacks with someone like Nicos Sampson in power fact that a reasonable man now is acting president of Cyprus is no guarantee that in someone like Sampson might not again grab Such a solution would en- sure more foreign domination of Turkish- Cypnots and a future for Cyprus as an island of peace in the eastern Mediterranean Greek delegation say the Turkish federation proposal is simply veiled partition and double meaning one chunk of the island belonging to Turkey and the larger part to Greece position is that Cyprus must remain an independent with all foreign troops said one Greek diplomat it would have to be a simultaneous and supervised withdrawal We cannot remove Greek soldiers while the massive Turkish invasion group Seen and heard About town Yvonne Schwetzer wonder- ing what to do about five kittens she found trapped between a fence and a garage Angelo Mauro nearly knocking out his ear drums by banging on a stethescope he was wearing to see if it was urnrlrinrr Zoo awaits bears The Black Bear that kept wildlife officials search- ing for 14 days since it mauled two youths near Beau- vais Lake Provincial Park sits in a trap awaiting trans- portation to a game farm in Banff.

Turkey's semi-official Ana- tolia news agency reported from Geneva that an agree- ment was expected to be sign- ed today. Today's developments ap- peared to restore some optim- ism to the talks which came close to ending in failure Fri- day The agreement Friday night by Mavros and Gunes to meet privately today was described by a British spokesman as only progress achieved Hearing's outcome foregone conclusion Commentary by WILLIAM V. SHANNON New York Times Service WASHINGTON The open sessions of the House Judiciary Committee have serv- ed to contradict two of the White House's major propaganda themes. Instead of a or a lynching the members of the committee have shown themselves to be conscientious and sen- sible. Instead of the impeachment procedure the country Americans are gaining some encouragement by watching their elected representatives at work They see them acting the way men and women ought to act in the political order The debate is spirited but free of informed by shaped by self- and occasionally graced by elo- quence The drift of these debates makes the out- come a foregone conclusion. The evidence of Nixon's culpability is overwhelming. It is now likely that five or more of the J7 Republicans on the committee will join all of the Democrats in recommending im- peachment. A vote of that kind in the Com- mittee would mean a solid majority in the whole House of approximately 260 to 175 in favor of impeachment The arithmetic is easily done. The House is composed of 248 Democrats and 187 Republicans. No northern or western Democrat will go counter to a unanimous recommendation of the Democrats on the committee. Democrats from the South are but Rep. Joe the president's chief voice among Conser- vative Southern cannot round up more than 35 votes. The best estimate of experienced Republicans in the House is that those Southern Democrats will be more than offset by 40 to 50 GOP voted in favor of im- peachment. A 2-to-l majority for impeach- ment is now conceivable. Contrary to the conventional wisdom on the the prospects for conviction in the Senate have always been better than for impeachment in the House. The reason is twofold. the progressive Republicans are proportionately much stronger in the Senate than in the House. the Southern Democrats to whom Nixon has directed so much of his attention are proportionately weaker in the Senate out of 100 members than they are in the House where they comprise 74 out of 435. Of those two Senators Sam Ervm of North Carolina and Herman Talmadge of Georgia served on the Senate Watergate Committee and reached a profoundly unfavorable judg- ment of Nixon's presidential conduct In the on many normal Ervm and Talmadge have been his allies But on they would be his powerful adversaries and carry a majority of the Senate Democrats from the old Confederacy with them. If the vote against him in the House in late August goes much above Nixon may decide not to stick around for Senate trial or for the release of those tapes hating the press to the he may choose late Saturday afternoon of Labor Day weekend when almost no reporters are at work as the time to drop nis letter of resignation in the mail and slip away to friend Abplanalp's Island in the Bahamas. NIXON LOSES FIRST VOTE WASHINGTON President Nixon has suffered a significant defeat in the first voting test of the House of Repre- sentatives judiciary committee's debate on his impeachment. Six Republicans defected late Friday night to vote with Democrats as delaying tactics by Nixon loyalists postponed an ex- pected recommendation to the full House that the president be impeached. This vote is now likely late today or Sun- day In its first substantive roll-call vote of its the committee killed 27 to 11 a Republican effort to strike out the first key section of a pending impeachment ar- ticle accusing the president of obstruction of justice in the Watergate cover-up. The margin was considered a forerunner of the final vote on the obstruction-of- justice the first of three pending impeachment articles being considered by the committee.

Canada has publicly de- manded a system of strict by U.S depart- ment of agriculture that DES has not been used In Washington proposed a system by would rely on sworn statements by beef pro- ducers and veterinarians in private practice that the hor- mone had not been used These documents would be the basis on which USDA veterinarians would cer- packing plants in the case of border stations for live that to the best of their knowledge DES had not been administered. In the U S proposed a systori of random checks of feed lots to assure that farmers and their veter- inarians were ac- curate certificates Canada imposed its em- bargo April cutting off U.S beef imports at a time when there is an abundance of meat and cattle on both sides of the border. American farmers have complained that many producers face financial dis- aster because of low beef prices. U S officials believe that Ottawa's ban is propping-up Canadian beef rather than protecting consumers from DES-fed animals. This belief was strengthened by the clash in cabinet shortly before the July 8 Canadian election between Health Minister Marc said the U S certification program was acceptable on health Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan. The agriculture minister sup- ported the embargo.
