Turkey -Greece Proposal
For Cyprus Troop Pullout
Unacceptable to Makarios

White House Raps
Steel Price Hikes

NICOSIA, Cyprus OA) - Greece
4 announced yesterday night it had
reached agreement with Turkey
to end the Cyprus crisis, but U.S.
special envoy Cyrus R. Vance was
still trying to persuade President
Makarios of Cyprus to accept the
Speculation arose immediately
on what tactical impact the
Athens announcement may have
on Makarios holdout position.
Rejects Demands
Makarious, a bearded Greek
Orthodox archbishop, objected to
Turkish demands that he has re-
jected for the past four years and
would not accept the six-point
peace plan designed to prevent a
Greek-Turkish war over this is-
land of intercommunal conflict.

The peace package has been
accepted by Greece and Turkey
from the Greek Cypriot majority.
but is causing widespread protest
With hopes of a quick settle-
ment of the Cyprus crisis fading,
Greeces military regime announ-
ced agreement had been reached
and the communique said the
same announcement was made in
Ankara, the Turkish capital.
The communique 4ssued by the
Greek Foreign Ministry said both
Greece and Turkey would gradu-
ally withdraw troops they had il-
legally stationed on Cyprus. It said
the relatively small contingents
allowed on Cyprus by the 1959-60
Zurich accord would remain.
The Greeks said Turkey would
"take the necessary steps to re-

UN Council Expected)

to Discuss
diplomats expected yesterday that
the UN Security Council would be
called into session in a few days
to deal with the Cyprus crisis.
Some said that if Cyprus ac-
cepted a Greek-Turkish plan to
widen the powers of the UN peace-
keeping force in Cyprus, only the
council could grant the wider

Others said that if Cyprus kept
insisting on international guar-
antees for its territorial integrity
in connection with any settlement,
the council would' be necessary
for that.
Still others said that if the
newly announced Greek - Turkish
agreement about Cyprus broke
down because Cyprus would not
accept it, Turkey probably would
renew her military preparations
and the council would be called
in to deal with the situation.
The present six-month term of
the 4,500-man force ends Dec. 26,
and the council will have to meet
by mid-December to extend its
lease on life in any case.
Soviet Opposition
One source 'said the Soviet
Union had let it be known pri-
vately that it would oppose any
widening of the authority of the
UN force, called "UNFICYP." That
raised the threat of a veto that
could hamper the carrying out of
the Greek-Turkish agreement.
Cypriot Ambassador Zenon Ros-
sides said of the reduction in
Greek and Turkish troops, "There
is no obstacle to that from the
point of view of Cyprus."
But he told reporters here "the
internal situation and the powers
of UNFICYP" were another thing
-and they were the subject of
"proposals from one side and
counterproposals from the other"
in Nicosia, where U.S. Envoy Cy-
rus Vance was talking with Maka-
Look for Peace
"What we are looking for," Ros-
sides said, "is to have a result
achieved by which peace would be
insured and the territorial integ-
rity, sovereignty and independence
of Cyprus would be preserved."
He had said earlier in the week
he was working for a guarantee
to Cyprus from the Security
Council or from the Big Four on
the council-Britain, France, the
Soviet Union and the United
States. Now he said, "The Secur-
ity Council is alerted, as you
know, and may meet at any

porters after a 50-minute confer-
ence with Secretary-General U

and UN officials stood by for, a
possible announcement from him
on that situation.

duce tension by restricting its war
preparedness in Turkey."
Vance, who returned to Nicosia
for more talks late Friday night,
conferred with Makarios until
shortly after midnight. Discussions
were resumed seven hours later.
Following an afternoon break,
talks continued ?ast night.
Deep Concern
A dispatch from Athens said
the Greek government appeared
deeply concerned during the day
that objections by Makarious
might wreck the Greek-Turkish
peace accord.
"What we are interested in now,"
a high Greek Foreign Ministry
source said, "is not to upset the
agreement. We are interested in
ending the crisis."
The Makarios government and
the Greek Cypriots were stunned
by what they considered to be a
a total surrender by Greece's
military regime to the Turkish
war threat.
Realize Aim
Informed Greek Cypriot sources
here termed the over-all effect of
the package plan as amounting
to a realization of the long stand-
ing 'Turkish aim to partition the9
island between its Greek-speak-
ing majority and its Turkish min-
Makarios stood firm during the,
crisis in 1964 when Turkey first
threatened to invade the island.
Sources said he was equally de-
termined to stand firm now. They
added Makarios considered that
the package proposals as they'
now stand would mean an end of
the island republic's integrity as
a nation and that rather than ac-
cept it he would even risk Tur-
key forcing it on him.

son administration struck hard
yesterday at a new increase in
steel prices. Its spokesman addedt
some barbs for recent auto wage
hikes - and got in another plug
for a tax increase.
Gardner Ackley, chairman of
the President's Council of Eco-
nomic Advisers, read grave in-,
flationary impact into a boost in
in sheet-steel prices and into labor1
contracts reached by Ford and
Chrysler with the AFL'CIO Auto
Workers Union.
He called in a statement for "a
return to more responsible be-
havior on wages and prices by
both labor and management."
$5 Per Ton
U.S. Steel announced Friday an
increase of $5 a ton-about 3.4 per
cent - on two grades of sheet
sheets. These types are widely
used in consumer products from,
automobiles to small home ap-
pliances and such a raw-materialj
price increase could be reflected
quite quickly at the retail level.
Other steel producers have not
announced their plans but "Big
Steel" is the industry's largest
corporate unit and normally is the
bellwether on prices.
Linking the steel-price hike and
the recently fashioned auto wage
pattern-Ackley called them equal-
ly disturbing.
He added:
"Government estimates of the
magnitude of this settlement place
its cost at about 5% per cent a
year - and more than 614 per
cent year if the cost-of-living al-
lowance reached the maximum
permitted under the contract.
"Recent events clearly make it
more imperative than ever," Ack-
ley argued, "that we arrest the

sociation ILA ordered its 50,000
members yesterday to quit the
AFL-CIO Maritime Trades de-
partment in a widing split be-
tween dock-workers and seagoing

wage-price spiral which presently
is in process."
Ackley said one necessary means
to that end is prompt enactin~mt of
an income tax increase sought by
President Johnson. The chief exec-
utive has asked Congress to enact
a 10 per cent surcharge on corpo-
rated and individual incomes to
help reduce an inflation-breeding
federal deficit and meet some of
the mounting costs of the Viet-
nam war.
Tax Defeat
Won't Effect
Spending Cut
son Administration intends to put
its plan for $4.1 billion worth of
spending cuts into effect without
special authority from Congress
and regardless, of the fate of the
10 per cent tax surcharge.
It's already under a congres-
sional mandate to cut $1.5 billion
of the cuts it proposes.
"Everything points to it," one
source said yesterday when asked
whether the spending cuts would
go into effect without the special
legislation requested from Con-
Administration officials said,
however, there has been no firm
decision on sticking to the $4.1-
billion and it could be altered if
the tax bill does not go through.
They said President Johnson
would want to review the whole
situation in the light of what hap-
pens on taxes, either rejection of
the bill, modification of it, or-
what appears more and more un-

From all indications, the ad-
ministration lost its battle during

Ways and Means Committee last
week for quick approval of the
surcharge and a formal directive
for spending cuts.

Dies at 78
NEW YORK (P)-Francis Car--

dinal Spellman, who looked like
a cherub but spoke with author-
* ity as senior prince of the Roman
Catholic Church in the United
States, died yesterday after a
"massive cerebral accident." He
was 78.
Cardinal Spellman experienced
some "difficulty" following a sur-
prise appearance at a charity din-
Sner at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel
Friday night.
Members of his household dis-
covered his illness yesterday
morning. He died ,at 11:45 a.m.,
less than two hours after he was
taken to St. Vincent's Hospital in
Dean of Cardinals
Cardinal Spellman was dean of
American cardinals and as arch-
bishop of New York since 1939,
headed the church's richest
He was a fervent Atheological
conservative, a militant anti-
Communist, an ardent patriot, a
tireless fund raiser, an efficient
administrator, and a firm disci-
plinarian and moralist.
His annual Christmas visits to
American forces around the world
were legendary. On one of them,
last year, his call for an "allied
victory" seemed to go against a
plea by Pope Paul VI for a truce
and negotiated peace. Cardinal
Spellman later explained that he
meant "victory for the sake of
genuine peace."
Shock and Sorrow
1 His death brought expressions
of shock and sorrow from the
famous and the obscure.
"I am deeply saddened by the
loss of a dear friend," said Gov:
Nelson A. Rockefeller of New
York, a protestant.
Sen. Robert F. Kennedy (D-
N.Y.) said that "as an American
and a Catholic, Cardinal Spellman
always spoke and acted vigorously
in support of the causes he be-
lieved in.
