Turkish troops land in

From'Wire Service Reports
ANKARA, Turkey - Turkey. started
landing troops on Cyprus by air and sea
early this morning, Prime Minister Bu-
lent Ecevit announced.
Ecevit said "Turkish armed forces will
not shoot at anyone unless others shoot
at them."
He said "our peaceful efforts so far
did not produce desired results."
The announcement came after a cabi-
net meeting following consultations be-
tween Ecevit and U.S. Undersecretary
of State Joseph Sisco.
Shortly before the Turkish announce-
ment of a troop landing, military sources
in Washington said seven Russian mili-
tary divisions had been placed on alert
in what U.S. officials interpreted as a
move in support of the Turks in the
Cyprus crisis.
The Cyprus National Guard, led by

Greek army officers, overthrew the gov-
ernment of Archbishop Makarios on
Monday, and took over the strategic
Mediterranean island, which is divided
between a Greek majority and a Turkish
minority.
Ecevit said Turkey did not intend to
be an invader in Cyprus but only wanted
to restore the status quo.
Speaking over the radio, Ecevit said
"We are not bringing war but peace to
Cyprus, to Greek Cypriots as well as to
Turks."
He added: "We hope there will not -be
a bloody confrontation."
"May God render this a beneficial
undertaking for our nation."
Ecevit thanked all friendly and allied
countries which tried with good inten-
tions to find a peaceful solution to the
problem without resort to a military
action. He said they are not responsible

for the fact that this has not been
possible.
The United States warned both sides
earlier yesterday the situation held a
"potential for calamity."
But in a United Nations' debate high-
lighted by a dramatic appeal for rein-
statement by ousted Archbishop Maka-
rios, U.S. spokesmen also warned against
a "rush to judgment."
Nothing would be served by making
hasty pronouncements that serve only
propaganda purposes, U.S. Ambassadosr
John Scali said.
Makarios, in his appearance before
the United Nations Security Council in
New York, said Greece had "extended
its dictatorship" with the Monday coup
which toppled his government.
As the public galleries and some of
the delegates broke into applause, the
bearded, black-robed ethnarch of the

Cyprus
Greek Orthodox Church strode into the
hall and told the Security Council:
"I call upon the Security Council to
use all ways and means at its disposal
so that the constitutional order in Cyprus
and the democratic rights of the people
of Cyprus can be reinstated without
delay."
Secretary of State Henry Kissinger con-
ferred in San Clemente with President
Nixon and the State Department said
Kissinger would meet with Makarios in
Washington Monday.
On Cyprus, Turkish-Cypriot troops pa-
trolled the Turkish enclave in the capital
of Nicosia and set up machine gun and
artillery emplacements in the streets.
"War is inevitable unless the world
convinces the Greeks their Byzantine
attitude has failed," said Cyprus Vice
President Rauf Denktash, leader of the
Turkish minority.

House unit receives
impeachment articles
Doar recommends. Nixon's ouster

WASHINGTON (A - Articles of
impeachment proposed to the
House Judiciary Committee yester-
day accused President Nixon of di-
rect responsibility for the Water-
gate burglary and cover-up and a
"pattern of massive and persistent
abuse of power for political pur-
poses."
A set of four impeachment ar-
ticles unsigned but apparently
drafted by the staff headed by spe-
cial counsel John Doar would im-
peach the President "of high
crimes and misdemeanors in the
conduct of his office" including:
-The Watergate burglary, cover-up,
hush money, obstruction of justice, de-
struction of evidence, allowing of per-
jury by aides and interference with
government agencies for all of which
Richard M. Nixon is personally and di-
rectly responsible."
ABUSE of power in the misuse of the
Internal Revenue Service and in the bur-
glary of Daniel Ellsberg's psychiatrist's
pffice. These were described as "part of
a pattern of massive and persistent
abuse of power for political purposes."
"The pattern of conduct," the article
reads, "has been at the direction of
Richard Nixon and on his behalf, acting
both personally and directly and through
his personal agents at the seat of gov-
ernment and their immediate subordi-
nates."
-Contempt of Congress for refusal to
comply with the committee's eight sub-
poenas for 147 taped conversations, and
-"Willful tax evasion," for which the
article says the President was not pro-
secuted solely because of his office.
THE COMMITTEE itself has taken no,

Door
action on the proposed articles but has
sifted through evidence and listened to
witnesses regarding the accusations.
The four articles are one of five sets
of proposed grounds for impeachment

before the committee. Four of the sets
were drafted by committee members.
The other sets include additional pro-
posed articles of impeachment on
charges of bribery in the dairy mirk
price increase, illegal secret bombing of
Cambodia, and the firing of former
Watergate special prosecutor Archibald
Cox.
Most members said Doar did not spe-
cifically recommend impeachment in
presenting the evidence on the proposed
impeachment articles to the committee
