Story on page 1 Turk-Cypriot autonomy being rapidly expanded NICOSIA A de facto partition of Cyprus has been gradually taking shape since the Turkish invasion The first signs of partition between Greek-and Turkish- Cypriot sectors appeared following bloody clashes between the two groups in 1963 Work now is in progress to enlarge a small airport in the zone occupied by Turkish troops A shipping line from Turkey to the Cypnot port of Kyrenia is to be opened in a lew days Turkish-Cypnot mail is routed through Ankara Turkish Cypnot autonomous administrative services set up after 1963 are quickly being expanded to cover all the Turkish held zone in Nicosia A telecommunications centre is planned for Kyrenia Plans to make the TurKish- Cypnot electricity supply independent of the Greek- Cypriots are being studied Vice President Rauf Den- ktash leader of the Turkish Cypnots admits there is a defacto division although he declines to use the word partition Turkish forces continue to occupy new territory dis- cretely They now hold about one-thirtieth of the island an occupation zone running 13 miles along the north and extending an equal dis- tance south from Kyrenia to Nicosia This zone includes a coastal and rich farmland beyond vi- able area Passenger flights will begin in a few days at the airport in the mountains 10 miles northwest of a Turkish Cypnot civil scr.ant said Denktash said a civilian ad- ministration is taking control of the Kvrenia district He re turned from an inspection there Monday The vice-president proposed making Kyrenia the capital of a Turkish-Cypnot federal state Turkish-Cypnots should be moved there so there will be no more isolated Turkish neighborhoods he said The most reasonable solution would be a non independent feder- ation of a Greek zone and a Turkish zone If that solution cannot be we will have to resort to partition There is no other alternative The Turkish-Cypnots now have the backing of a formi dable army to achieve the solution they have demanded for years OTTAWA The 464 Canadian Forces personnel being added to the Cyprus UN force this will bring to about the number of ser- vicemen serving overseas That represents about one- tenth of the about per- sons in the shghtly-under- strength unified forces F igures from the forces show the overseas Canadians range from the in the Canadian NATO contingent to the single officer seconded to special work in Nigeria The 950 men mostly of the Canadian Airborne serving on Cyprus join Cana- dians on UN work in three other theatres about men in the Middle less than 20 m Kashmir and a cou- ple in Korea The 8 250 overseas this week compare with the that were out of the country just before Canadians started flving to Egypt last year to join the UN Emergency Force The Canadian contingent of the 10 vear-old Cyprus force then numbered 581 men The contingent had been reduced to 486 men when the recent hostilities forced the UN to seek to double the size of the 2 100 man peacekeeping body The Airborne personnel are acquiring some glory on Cyprus at a time when the iorces acknowledge that in tantrv recruiting is a continu- ing problem In tact they have hopes that the publicity generated by the Canadian achievements in Cyprus might provide a spur to as publicity about UNEF did last year The forces say they are 500 m fantrj men short and are seek- ing to recruit Unfortunately for the recruiters young persons to day are looking for trades and advancement If travel was an in- ducement recruiters could point with pride to Canadians being stationed in at least 30 countries Beside the more than 8 000 men now overseas there are about 6 000 men ready to go overseas if needed to help de fend the northern flank of Eu- rope The Canadian NATO group include about 3 200 in the 4th Mechanized Battle Group and about 1 000 in the 1st Air Group Wildlife association asks halt to coal exploration Police guarding RCMP constable MONTREAL Robert Samson was identified Monday by Montreal Urban Community police as the RCMP constable admitted to hospital last Friday suffering injuries incurred following an explosion Constable a seven-year veteran with the force was suffering extensive injuries to his right hand and was undergoing treatment for damage to his left eye and metal fragments in the chest The constable is under police guard at Montreal General a police spokesman said Police found a blood-stained glove with one finger missing and drops of blood following an explosion last Friday near the house of Mel president of Steinberg's Ltd in suburban Town of Mount Royal The explosive device appar ently went off police said partially damag- ing the back of the house near the patio where it exploded None of the five family members asleep at the was injured An RCMP statement said the officer was located in hospital Friday afternoon after not reporting for duty and that he was being treated for injuries allegedly sustain- ed during an explosion while he was repairing his car EDMONTON The Alberta Wildlife Association has asked the provincial government to revoke a licence granted to Demson Mines for coal exploration on a one by six mile piece of land near Alta because the association fears it might irrevocably commit the area to development Dr Richard presi- dent of the called the company's exploration 'immoral' because the En- vironment Conservation Authority has not yet made recommendations to the government about future use of wilderness areas on the eastern slopes of the Rockies As it is Demson could go in there with bulldozers scar the land for 80 to 100 years and the puohc would not find out until the bulldozer was on the he said in a letter to Dr Allan minister of lands and forests Julian vice chairman of the said there was no cause for over exploration in the area We could not stop the ex- ploration that was already go- ing on and the land surface reclamation act is very stringent he said Fred Facco in charge of the Department of Lands and Forests Special Land Use said the company would be allowed to by bulldozer 16 foot paths for their exploration equipment He said the move is in no way an irrevocable decision on the area and Demson would have to go through a long process before it could begin mining operations Grandmasters compete in Canada chess meet MONTREAL Organizers of the llth Cana dian Open Chess Cham- pionship are pleased with the contest s success as it swings into fifth round today This is the biggest turnout ever of a Canadian cham- says Kalev Pugi Canadian Chess

the diplomats Reporter sentenced for contempt LOS ANGELES After a three year court fight reporter William Farr was sentenced to five days in jail and fined Monday by a ludge who said he regretted he was not able to make the sentence longer The sentence was the max imum permitted under an ap pellate court s ruling that Farr could not be forced to serve the open ended jail term originally imposed for contempt of court Superior Court Judge Charles Older acusmg Farr of holding himself above the law delayed immediate ex ecution of the .sentence pending a decision on another appeal in federal court Farr who served 46 days in jail earlier in the case said he was disappointed but certain that his refusal to reveal news sources had convinced the public that reporters must ctick to their moral convic tions Older had demanded Farr tell him the names of his sources for a story he wrote in 1971 about the Charles Manson murder case Older said Farr s case warranted a more severe sentence Turnout disappoints Mayor Dent EDMONTON Despite a disappointing turn out by mayors of large Cana- dian cities at a one day conference Mayor Ivor Dent of Edmonton said the meeting was worthwhile I was a bit disappointed that we didn t get all the peo pie out for this that we wanted to said Mayor Dent conference hcst But there was good dis- cussion and it extremely useful We zeroed in on com- mon problems Mayors from 24 cities were invited but only 11 showed up The absentees included Jean Drapeau of David Crombie of Toronto Steve Juba of Winnipeg Rod Sykes of Calgary and Henry Baker of Regma Some of the mayors had pre- vious commitments while others gave no reason for not attending the informal confer- ence Scientists search ocean bottom for metals By WALTER SULLIVAN New York Times Service PONTA The Azores French participants in the French-American exploration of the submarine median valley of the Atlantic Ocean believe they have discovered a geyser whose eruptions generate almost pure manganese ore One of their deep diving submersibles has grabbed a sample of material from the flank of this conelike and brought it to the surface for study It has been identified as a form of manganese of the type found previous- ly in several dredge hauls along the mid Atlantic ridge The finding has generated considerable excitement among members of the French-American Mid-ocean better known as Project whose goal is the direct explora- tion of the mid ocean rift valley lying some feet un- derwater It is believed that the valley is being formed by forces that are separating Europe and Africa from the Americas and are slowly tearing the ocean floor apart From observations it had been suspected that eruptions through the floor of that valley bring up metals from deep within the earth As hot water percolates through rock that has risen in this according to current it extracts the metals and deposits them as ores either within cracks in the rock or via hot springs and geysers that spread the metal on top of the sea later to be buried by sediment It is believed that many ores now found on notably the great copper deposits on the island of originated in this manner a major goal of Project Famous has been to observe the initial stages in such ore formation It is such a submarine geyser that the French think they have found American scientists hope that sensitive temperature measurements can be made on the next and final round of to see if the site in active So .y 25 dives have been made by the Archimede ar'd me Cyana of and the Alvin of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution of Massachusetts Earlier this United States Navy scientists reported finding manganese and bottom water at temperatures slight- ly above normal along the mid-Atlantic ridge south of the area being explored by Project Famous The latter is some 220 miles southwest of here The final series of dives are planned for the next two weeks In the effort to find spots along the median the Woods Hole research ship Knorr has been towing a a short distance above the ocean floor carrying a temperature measuring Its signals continuously indicate slight variations m water temperature Early observations of such variations produc- ed some hopes that a hot spot had been but return visits failed to confirm this ;
