U.S., Britain Press Ahead
For Cyprus Peace Force

By The Associated Press
NICOSIA-American and Brit-
ish officials remained on the move
yesterday in a continuing effort
to create a Cyprus peace force. A
new plan, involving the United
Nations, was unveiled in London,
but there was little hope it would
meet with Cypriot approval.

Special Problem
Although no conclusion was
reached, he said, it was recog-
nized as one "special problem"
arising from the new constitution
that might have to ae made sub-
ject to amendment.
He refused, however, to com-
ment further on the plan by a
House group to put three pro-I
posed amendments-dealing with
the districts and other election
problems-on a special referen-
d cum ballot April 28.
The group would amend the
new constitution to freeze pres-
ent legislative districts until 1966
and also make key changes in
provisions governing election of
county and township offlcers.
No Comment
Romney refused to comment
specifically on any of these ques-
tions. However, he said he would
; . oppose any proposal to restore
the elective offices of highway
commissioner and superintendent
of public instruction.
Although the House group
agreed last week to abandon these,

ently consider them "still nego-

British Foreign Minister R. A.
Butler arrived in the United States
yesterday, met with United Na-
tions officials and prepared to join
the talks beginning today between
President Lyndon B. Johnson and
British Prime Minister Sir Alec
Undersecretary of State George
A. Ball arrives here today. Greek
Cypriots are expected to give him
a cool reception, and the possibil-
ity of renewed anti-American
demonstrations has been raised.
New Plan
Meanwhile, the United States
and Britain have drawn up an
amended peace plan for Cyprus,
giving the United Nations a voice
but not a vote on peacekeeping
operations, British officials said
last night.
The proposals were revised to
meet some of the objections raised
by President Makarios of Cyprus
to the scheme for sending a 10,-
000-man Allied peace army into
the island. In particular Makarios
demanded that the force be an-
swerable to the United Nations Se-
curity Council.
The latest version of the Amer-
ican-British proposition-accord-
ing to British officials-incorpor-
ates three major changes:
--It allows the whole peace-
making program to be referred to
the Security Council under the so-
called "consensus" procedure. This

The government yesterday ordered
an immediate cease-fire in So-

(There was.no immediate word
that Ethiopians also would stop
shooting, but that would be a nor-
mal corollary.)
A foreign ministry spokesman
said the order was issued to So-
malf forces in response to an ap-
peal by U1ited Nations Secretary
General U Thant for halting of
the hostilities.
Thant's plea for a truce was
welcomed by both Prime Minister

malia and Emperor Haile Selas-
