Sheik deal
Last week a sheik wanted to by the Alamo for
his son. This week the goal is a bit less grandiose,
but a lot more practical: Saudi Arabian financier-
Ghaith Rashad Pharaon wants to buy 1.5 million
shares of stock in Michigan's sixth largest bank.
The deal, which will probably be finalized tomor-
row will be the first substantial investment in a
major U.S. bank by a Middle East private interest.
Bank of the Commonwealth Chairman James
Barnes said the transfer of the stock is aimed at
establishing Detroit as a major center of trade
between the U.S. and the Mideast. The sale is
subject to approval by state and federal authorities,
but so far, there is no indication they will object.
Great gas robbery
You can hide a purloined car, stolen loot and
sometimes even a kidnapped person, but how do
you conceal 11,563 gallons of gas? The problem
has got more than one policeman scratching his
head in the Detroit suburb of Birmingham. A Gulf
Oil Co. double-tandem tanker truck was hijacked
Friday-and its cargo stolen-while making a
delivery to a local station. Truck driver Jesus
Luna was pumping the gas when someone put a
gun to his head. The thief then taped Luna's eyes
and tied his hands behind his back. Luna and the
thief drove to an unknown location, the fuel was
unloaded, and Luna was later released. Gulf
says the shipment was valued at $3,900.

Goldwater blasts Congress
Conservative pontiff Sen. Barry Goldwater (R-
Ariz.) had some dour words to offer the U.S. on
the eve of its 200th anniversary: "If the country
can survive this Congress, it can survive anything,"
he said. "You have a revolution in the House of
Representatives by young members who don't
know what they're doing," he criticized. "I'm
convinced from the attitudes of members of this
congress that they have no concept of what makes
the economy run and they have no concept of
how money is used to make money . . . even
though this country is close to national bank-
ruptcy." He termed the Senate a "Byrd bath," in
honor of the assistant Democratic leader. "I think
the Senate is run as poorly as I've ever seen it,"
he added. "I'd like to see the floor operated with
more of a certain knowledge of what we're going
to do two days or a week from now."
Mickey not happy
When the porno flick "Life and Times of a
Happy Hooker" featured an orgy segment to the

tune of the "Mickey Mouse March," the folks at
Walt Disney were not amused. It seems they didn't
feel the march was the proper background for a
scene where three men, wearing nothing but mouse
ears, cavort through simultaneous sex acts with a
nude woman. The four-minute segment begins with
Ia series of moans and groans. Disney attorney
Walter Stratton says the movie, now playing in
New York and distributed by the Mature Pictures
Corporation, does "substantial and irreparable
injury" to the ownership rights-and they're suing
for $2.5 million. "Not only that, your honor," said
the offended Stratton, "Three of the four partici-
pants in the scene were wearing Mouseketeer
ears." It's enough to make Mickey blush.

-President Ford yesterday
announced a record $349
billion budget-with a defi-
cit of $52 billion-aimed at
boosting the nation's sick
economy and cushioning
the effects of the recession.
If approved by Congress,
for the next year it will
cost nearly $1 billion a day
to run the United States.
INCLUDED in the budget,
which will be sent to Congress
tomorrow, is part of Ford's pro-
posed tax cut of $16 billion
dollars to stimulate the lagging
Ford told a news conference
the deficit was caused mainly
by low government tax reve-
nues, reduced by the recession,
coupled with higher payments
to the unemployed and other
He warned that the deficit
royld shoot on to $70 billion if
Congress did not approve a
series of cuts and delays in gov-
ernrent exnendit ire which he
has proposed.
"I DON'T U ke to s'e deficits
of this size," Ford said.
But he added that he had to
srim"late the economy and help
the :,nemnloved, and "my bud-
vet does i==st that."
ThredPresident's budget, for
the financial year starting on
,J"lv 1, is S36 billion higher than
estimated government exnendi-
tire in the current financial
year and 8l billion more than
sperding in 1974.
FORD reaffirmed his commit-
ment to put the brakes on in-
flation--even though he was pro-
uosing a temnorary infusion of
money into the economy with
his tax cut.
"It is eqally essential that
we do not rekindle the fires of
inflation," he declared.
"We concluded that this year

it would be imprudent to initiate
any spending programs except
for energy," Ford said. "None
is proposed."
THIS PLAN was certain to
run into opposition from Demo-
crats in Congress who want to
introduce a medical insurance
scheme this year which could

Ford, now engaged in a run-
ning battle with Congress over
his plans to cut oil imports by
imposing a stiff tariff, offered
to cooperate on his budget.
"I will walk the extra mile,"
he promised. "I ask the Con-

gress to walk the extra mile
with me.'
BUT Democrats in Congress
have already voiced strong dis-
agreement over his proposed tax
cuts, with many saying they do
not go far enough to help ,the
poor, and some Democrats are
proposing schemes of their own.
Explaining his deficit, Ford
said aid to the unemployed
would increase by $12.7 billion
over the 1974 financial year and
other governmental beneficiaries
would receive $14.5 billion more.
At the same time, government
income from taxes would be
about $40 billion less than they

A boyish-lookirg Clyde Wil-
liam Colburn walked to the end
of a long stage in the East Ball-
room of Weber's Inn, coyly
modeling a pale yellow jacket-
and-shorts ensemble and adidas
tennis shoes.
Watching the former Republi-
can City Councilman were about
300 elaborately-coiffed women,
hailing from the more conser-
vative districts of this town,
who paid $12 a plate yesterday
to attend the luncheon-cum-
fashion show. Proceeds went to
the March of Dimes.
THE SHOW featured, besides
the dashing Colburn, local foot-
ball favorites Denny Franklin
and Dave Brown.
The men explained their mo-
tives for modeling beforehand:
"I'm doing my bit for charity,
man," commented Brown back-
stage before the show.
"Yeah," agreed Franklin.
"It's for the cause."
AS THE plates emptied of
lobster Newburg and spinach
salad, were carted out of the
ballroom the mistress of cere-
monies announced: "We're go-

an organist floated sweetly in
the background. Large red nets
and ships' life preservers adorn-

the atmosphere of sea travel.

"following the southern sun in
casual sportswear" in a blue,
white and yellow-flowered shirt
and white double-knit slacks.

type jackets. The two men ap-

Fighting between Greek Cypriot and Turkish troops erupted
around Nicosia's international airport last night and residents of
northern Nicosia abandoned their homes fearing a new Turkish
The fighting came as pro-Greek Congressional leaders in
Washington rejected Secretary of State Henry Kissinger's appeal
for continued military aid to Turkey to continue and said an
embargo would go into effect at midnight Tuesday.
CONGRESS, which imposed the embargo because Turkey used
American-made equipment in its invasion of Cyprus last July,
has ruled that the embargo would only be lifted if substantial
progress were made in the Cyprus dispute.
Turkey last night accused the Greek Cypriots of trying to
sabotage its efforts to secure continued U.S. military aid. A foreign
ministry official in Ankara said the Greek Cypriots had opened
heavy machinegun fire on a Turkish Cypriot enclave in southern
Cyprus yesterday afternoon.
Heavy machinegun and rifle fire rang out over the northern
suburbs of Nicosia last night.
GREEK Cypriot national guardsmen and Turkish army troops
exchanged fire around the perimeter of the airport with Canadian
United Nations peace keeping forces holding the center against an
advance by either side.
ore troops sent
to Indian-h1eldarea

The question of control over the airport has been a major
factor in the continuing tension over Cyprus.
Residents leaving their homes in Nicosia feared that the
renewed fighting might be a move by the Turkish army to
strengthen its hand in negotiations on the Cyprus problem.
REFERRING to the earlier shooting, the Turkish foreign
ministry official said Greek Cypriots had.opened heavy machinegun
fire on Turkish Cypriots at Ayanicola.
On the second occasion, Turkish troops north of the "Attila
line," which Turkish invasion forces drew across the island last
summer, had opened fire on the Greek Cypriots and silenced their
guns," he said.
Turkey had complained about the. incident to the U.N. peace-
keeping force on the island.
"THIS afternoon's shooting was staged by the Greek Cypriots
with the sole intention of convincing congress that there was still
no peace in Cyprus," the spokesman said.
Earlier in the day Turkeyrappeared tohave embarked on a
last minute campaign to secure its military aid from the U.S.
by announcing that some 8,000 Greek Cypriots had resettled in
Turkish-held northern Cyprus and some 5,000 more would be
allowed to follow.
Diplomatic sources said the announcement, coupled with the
withdrawal of 1,000 Turkish troops from the island last week,
would give President Ford's administration some help in its
campaign for the continuation of military aid.
