Destroyer explodes'

British Labor party
splits bef ore vote

INSTANBUL (gP) - A Soviet
guided missile destroyer ex-
ploded in the Black Sea on
Wednesday. Turkish naval sour-
ces said yesterday. There was
no immediate confirmation
from any other source.
Turkish port sources said the
destroyer belonged to the Ka-
shin class and was attached to
the Soviet Black Sea Fleet.
THEY DID not say how many
men were aboard, but the au-
thoritative British publication
Jane's Fighting Ships shows
that a comparable American
destroyer carries about 350
men.
The Guinness Book of World
Records says the worst peace-
time disaster involving a mili-
tary ship occurred in 1963 offs
Cape Cod Mass., when the U. S.
nuclear - powered submarine
Thresher was lost with all 129
aboard.
The worst wartime naval dis-
aster occurred in 1945 off Dan-
zig when a Soviet .submarine
sank the German ship Wilhelm
Gustloff.
JANE'S SAYS a Kashin class
destroyer is 470 feet long, 521

feet wide, weighs 5,200 tons ful-
ly loaded, has four missile
launchers, four antiaircraft
guns, four rocket launchers and
five torpedo tubes.
Kashin class destroyers were
the world's first warships to re-
ly entirely on gas turbines pro-
pulsion for quick acceleration
but they have been rapidly out-
dated by later classes. Jane's
said 9 of the ships were built
in Leningrad and Nikolayev.
U. S. Navy officials in Lon-
don said they had no informa-
tion about the explosion of the
Soviet destroyer. The NATO
southern naval command in
Italy said it too had no infor-
mation on the report.
A SPOKESPERSON for the
U. S. 6th Fleet in Naples said
the headquarters also had no
information, but pointed out that ,
such reports normally would
go to the U. S. Navy offices in
Turkey.
The Turkish navy monitors
Soviet naval movements from
the Black Sea into the Mediter-
ranean through the Dardanel-
les, which are controlled by
Turkey.

LONDON, (Reuter) - New!
cracks appeared in the LaborI
Party's general election front
yesterday when another govern-
ment minister threatened to
resign'if Britain had to pull out
of the European Economic Com-'
munity (EEC).
The warning by Home Secre-
tary Roy Jenkins re-emphasized:
deep splits inside Labor over
Britain's place in the European,
Common Market.
HE SAID it would be a ma-
jor mistake for Britain to leave
the community.3
Jenkin's statement followed
Wednesday's d r a m a t i c'
announcement by Shirley Wil-
liams, Secretary for Prices and
Consumer Affairs, that she
would quit politics altogther ift
Britain withdrew from the mar-1

in 12 months of the election on
Oct. 10.
PUBLIC opinion polls in the
past have shown substantial ma-
jorities against Britain staying
in the European community.
Jenkins said: "My conviction
is that it would be a major mis-
take for Britain to come out of
Europe is as strong as Wil-
liams is . . . I could not, of
course, stay in a cabinet which
had to carry out a major poli-
cy which I regarded as damag-
ing, to the world and doubly so
to Britain."
At a press conference, Wilson
said: "The parties are devided
on this issue and the whole
country is divided."
HE RAISED the possibility
that the promised ballot box
test of public opinion could bej

BILL PENDING IN CONGRESS:
Ford said to back cut in
all foreign aid for Turkey

By AP and ReuterI
WASHINGTON - President'
Ford will back the move in
Congress to block U. S. aid to
Turkey, Senate Minority Lead-
er Hugh Scott said yesterday.
But he will do so apparently
with some reluctance because
the White House says it feels
the move would be against the
interests of all concerned.
SCOTT (R-Pa.) told reporters
after a two-hour breakfast meet-
ing at the White House that
Ford will support an amend-
ment which would halt aid to
Turkey until it makes a good
faith move to resolve the Cy-
prus military situation.
The President and Secretary
of State Henry Kissinger met
for two hours and 15 minutes at
the White House yesterday
imorning with the bipartisan
leadership of the Senate and
House and senior members of
their foreign affairs commit-
tees.
Scott said Ford urged pas-
sage of a continuing resolution
extending beyond Sept. 30 au-
thority to continue foreign aid

and other programs for which negotiations over Cyprus and
regular appropriation bills have other tense world situations.
not yet been passed. Ron Nessen, White House
THE HOUSE, in passing the press secretary, said it is the
money resolution Tuesday, at- administration view that adop-

tached a rider requiring sus-
pension of military aid to Tur-
key until the President could
certify "substantial progress"
in negotiations between Greece,.
Turkey and Cyprus for with-
drawal of foreign troops in Cy-!
prus.
The Senate is scheduled to
act on the continuing resolution
Monday. Differences will be
subject to House and Senate
concurrence.
Scott and Senate Majority
Leader Mike Mansfield said the
Senate will then proceed to act
on a sharply reduced and re-:
strictive foreign aid authoriza-
tion bill for this year supported
by a majority of the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee.
MANSFIELD, who participat-
ed in the White House meeting
said Kissinger had not indicat-
ed to him that he wanted ac-
tion on the foreign aid bill,
f a c i n g further restrictive
amendments delayed because of

tion of restrictive provisions
work against the interests of all
parties, especially Greece since
they will inhibit efforts to reach
a settlement."
