eight miles from the Cypriot capital of Nicosia today and overran its military airstrip Turkish forces also drove south and east of Nicosia taking over the Greek Cypriot radio station in the southern part of the capital A Turkish announcer indicated the Nicosia airport also had fallen But later reports showed the airfield taken was the one at Tymbou eight miles southeast of Nicosia The radio gave the impression that the Turks were attempting to encircle Nicosia The broadcast came as heavy fighting broke out on the island following the breakdown of peace efforts and Greece an nounced withdrawal of its military forces from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization The announcement was made on the previously Greekcon trolled Cyprus Broadcasting Co station indicating the Turks captured it The station suddenly stopped broadcasting Greek Cypriot communiques and martial music and appealed in Greek for Greek Cypriots to sur render Greece cannot do anything for you the radio said Give yourself up to the Turkish Turks claim big gains by tankled troops forces It announced that T u r k i s h forces were advancing to the southeast and southwest of the city and said The Timbou and the airport areas previously held by the Greek forces have been captured All operations have been successfully carried out ac cording to plan the radio said Turkish planes armor and infantry blasted their way through Greek Cypriot lines on the island rocking Cyprus with heavy explosions and sending up huge columns of smoke from devastated buildings At least 41 persons were Ford faces first crisis as leader Washington AP Facing the first international crisis of his infant administra tiin President Ford conferred with Secretary of State Henry A Kissinger today on the new fighting in Cyprus and then meti with a veteran S o v i e diplomat The Oval Office session with Soviet Ambassador Anatoly Dobrynin was not announced in advance It followed an early morning White House meeting between Ford and Kissinger on I the latest crisis in Cyprus It was unclear however whether the Dobrynin meeting was linked to the Cyprus development The Soviet envoy was in his home country when Nixon resigned and Ford assumed the presidency and informants reported earlier in the week that he had returned with a personal message for Ford from Soviet Leader Leonid I Brezhnev Turning to economic pro blems the President also added a meeting with Sen Russell B Long DLa to his crowded schedule urging an at mosphere of selfsacrifice to help deal with inflation The President and Kissinger met earlier in the Oval Office in the wake of renewed fighting on Cyprus As he was leaving his Alex andria Va home this morning for the White House Ford told reporters he also had conferred Tuesday night by telephone with Kissinger on the latest developments in Cyprus On domestic matters a White House spokesman conceded for the first time that Ford may be growing attached to his new job and Ford served notice that he intends to be his own man in economies as well as politics White House Press Secretary Jerald F terHorst said Tuesday there would be a Ford pro gram to fight inflation with the firm imprimatur of the new President One of Fords economic pro posals was to be revealed today whe Budget Director Roy L Ash appears before the House Banking and Currency Com mittee to outline recommenda tions for an antiinflation agen cy TerHorst acknowledged that the economic policies that former President Richard M Nixon had announced only a month ago in a Los Angeles speech face possible revision or replacement Asked if these policies were under review and liable to change terHorst said That would be a fair statement The question came after reported that Ford had told a private meeting of lower level administration officials that inflation was the nations No 1 problem TerHorst said Ford told these aides that he did not expect to come up with any instance panaceas but at least there would be a Ford program Reminded that Ford had the same economic advisers who formulated Nixon policies terHorst said Ford has told them that the country has a new President who expects to have his own inputs and perhaps come up with some new ideas He thinks the country ex pects it of him terHorst said He thinks he has reason to believe that Congress would cooperate if he can offer pro grams that make sense on capitol Hill TerHorst also let slip another change in Ford ideas when he conceded that Fords previous no to a possible 1976 presidential candidacy is now a maybe This was a marked departure from the steady insistence since Ford was nominated as vice president last October that he was only interested in serving out the term and not becoming a presidential candidate in his own right two years from now Ford packed in another busy day Tuesday his second full day on the job meeting with the Joint Chiefs of Staff subcabinet level administration officials officials of the Federal Manpower Training Program and labor chieftan George Meany reported wounded to the first few hours of fighting including 28 patients in a mental hospital 12 members of the UN peackeeping force and one newsman The Greek radio claimed four Turkish planes were downed Turkey said it wanted to gain control of only a fair share of territory tor the Turkish Cypriots and not the whole island This was an apparent reference to the northern part of Cyprus Greece announced its withdrawal from military participation in NATO as a result of the onslaught and discussed the possibility of war with Turkey Witnesses in northern Greece reported new tanks on flat cars and trains moved through the night and early today in the direction of the Turkish border Representatives of the 15 NATO governments m e t urgently in Brussels and most of them told Greece they hoped withdrawal from the military organization would be only temporary a spokesman said In London Archbishop Makarios deposed president of Cyprus called on the worlds major powers to rescue the eastern Mediterranean island from what he called barbarous Turkish aggression What the Turks failed to achieve at the Geneva con ference by blackmail and gun boat diplomacy they are now attempting to get by brutal force the archbishop said He spoke less than 24 hours after Turkey walked out of the Geneva peace talks and the UN Security Council adopted a British resolution calling for a new Cyprus ceasefire and resumption of the con ference Air space over Turkey Greece and Cyprus was closed with the new outbreak of fighting on the ui island and telephone and telex its lines to Cyprus were cut off US threatens to cut off aid Washington AP The US government today warned Greece and Turkey that their military aid from the United States will be cut off if they go to war The United States is con vinced that only through a re turn to negotiations can an agreement be established which will serve to restore constitu tional government to Cyprus and peace and stability to the area said State Department i p o k e s m art Robert J McCloskey McCloskey former US am bassador to the island em phatically rejected suggestions that Washington was tilting toward Greece or Turkey He called such claims plain baloney At the same time McCloskey said Secretary of State Henry A Kissinger and other top US of ficials were not convinced that Greece had withdrawn from
