Makarios reported heading

ny The Asiotdiad Press
Archbishop Makarios, the d e p o s e d
president of Cyprus, arrived last night
on the island of Malta and was reported
ready to fly to the United Nations, where
the Security Council was meeting to dis-
cuss the overthrow of his regime.
Cypros' atmbassadotr to the United Na-

More fighting was ieported yesterday

Waldheim told the Security Council

pe:ce and security."
TIlE COUP was the work of the 10,000
nian national guard, the army of Cyprts,
and its 650 officers from the Greek
Army. Makarios last week accused the
Greek officers-and the ruling military
junta in Athens-of a plot to assassinate
or overthrow him as a prelude to enosis,
or union with Greece.
The rebels have made no mention of
enosis in broadcasts, saying the new

Moths descend on area
i wake of th nderstorm

tar winged creatures have taken over
the city!
There's no need for alarm, however,
they're only moths. And they should
have all disappeared by next week.

COLUMBIA, S.C. {,P) - State Sen.
James Edwards, a Charleston dentist,-
defeated former Army Chief of Staff
William Westmoreland yesterday to win
South Carolina's first Republican guber-
natorial primary election.
Edwards, carrying his populous home
county by a 9-1 margin and holding his
own in other Republican strongholds,
stunned Westmoreland, who was making
his first political venture.
WESTMORELAND, w h a commanded
American forces in Vietnam, said: "I
haven't lost much in my life, and I guess
this just proves I'm not a politician. I
had something to give to my home

entomology researcher at Michigan State
University, the moths, cotmionly known
as the Spruce budworm- nith, will be
nearly non-existent within the next week
or so.
"The moths," said Newman, "are na-
tive to Wisconsin and Canadian forested
areas. The species does not occur in
abundance in Southern Michigan."
He said that the moths came in Sun-
day with the storm front and were pick-
ed up through an up draft of wind that
carried them up to a mile in the sky.
They landed in southern Michigan but
wont be here for long.
THE MOTHS will not be a problem to
vegetables and similar vegetation; how
ever, nurseries may h a v e a problem
with eggs left by the invading moths,
he reported.
The environment in southern Michigan
is unsuited for the survival of the moths
as they feed off of spruce trees and
will soon die off, Newman added.
The Department of Agriculture said
they had many phone calls inquiring
about the moths but no serious problems
were reported.
William Joy, of the University Envir-
onmental Health Department, said that
he similarly had several calls; however,
the only problems he had were reported
in Northwoods apartments. There were
large, numbers of moths in the apart-
ments and in the general area, he said.
He attributed the problem in most cases~
to children who might have left doors

open and let the maths in.
Local merchants also reported prob
lems with the moths as the little crea-
tures clung to store fronts and windows.
Lorene Upchurch, a h o s t e s s at Win
Schuler's said the insects were all over
the outside walls and some had even
gotten into the restaurant.
But according to University Zoology
Prof. Irving Cantrall the moths are
harmless and do not carry disease.

THE SPRUCE BUDWORM moth perches happily on someone's thumb. The
tiny creatures have invaded the area, but won't be around long, says Michigan
State University entomologist John Newman. The winged hordes native to
Wisconsin and Canada caught a free ride with Sunday's thunderstorm.
