GENEVA, Switzerland 0':-The broad out-
lines of a political settlement to the Cyprus
crisis began to emerge yesterday after Britain
proposed a compromise plan allowing a
"patchquilt" of Greek and Turkish Cypriot dis-
tricts on the tense Mediterranean island. Brit-
ish Foreign Secretary James Callaghan, medi-
ator at the Cyprus peace talks here, was re-
ported to have won near agreement from For-
eign Ministers George Mavros of Greece and
Turan Gunes of Turkey on the wording of
basic principles to determine the island repub-
lic's future political framework. The three
countries are guarantors of Cyprus indepen-
dence.
UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. :it -- Responding
to a suggestion from the Portuguese govern-
ment, the Security Council unanimously recom-
mended yesterday that the General Assem-
bly admit the Portuguese colony of Guinea-
Bisseau as an independent member of the
world organization. The West African terri-
tory, also known as Portuguese Guinea, is still
negotiating for its independence from Portu-
gal. But in Lisbon, Portuguese Foreign Minis-
ter Mario Soares predicted yesterday in an
interview with the newspaper A Capital that
Guinea-Bisseau would receive independence
from Portugal before the end of August.

NEW DELHI, India (A) - Indian air force
helicopters dropped food packages yesterday
to eastern Indian villagers stranded by floods
which officials describe as the worst in 20
years. The official all-India radio said Rail-
way Minister L. N. Mishra estimated millions
of dollars worth of crops had been destroyed
by the overflowing rivers. Mishra said Bibar
state was the hardest hit area. The air force

relief operation concenterated on vast rural
areas in the Darbhanga region near the bor-
der with Nepal, where the Baghmati and Kam-
la rivers have overflowed due to monsoon
rains, the radio said.

WASHINGTON (P--U.S. District Judge John
Sirica said yesterday that he will have turned
over by today nearly half the tapes sought by
the special Watergate prosecutor for use in
the Watergate cover-up trial. Sirica, who has
been listening to the tapes to decide their rele-
vancy to the case, said 17 new tapes will go
to the prosecutor. Added to 10 already provid-
ed, that makes 27 of the 64 conversations cov-
ered by the Supreme Court order directing
former President Richard Nixon to furnish the
tapes to Sirica.
WASHINGTON ('P-The Agriculture Depart-
ment said yesterday that this year's corn har-
vest will be 12 per cent below last year, mean-
ing consumers can expect higher prices in
1975. "It does mean in 1975 upward pressure
on food prices. There's no question about
that," said department economist Dawson
Ahalt. Ahalt commented after the Crop Report-
ing Board said the nation's corn crop, plagued
by heavy rains at spring planting and drought
during the critical summer growth period, is
expected to be the least since 1970.
Weather
It will be partly cloudy today with a high
near 80. The low tonight will be in the mid-
50's. There's a 20 per cent chance of rain
today with a chance of thundershowers to-
morrow.

graduation
U.S. District Judge Damon
Keith of Detroit will be the fea-
tured speaker at the Univer-
sity's summer commencement
this Sunday.

dent Lyndon Johnson. Prior to

person of the Michigan Civil
Rights Commission, president
of the Detroit Housing Com-
mission, and vice-president of

The suit filed by employes at
the Institute of Social Research
including Washtenaw County
Commissioner Elizabeth Taylor
claims the University has not
paid women on an equal scale
with male workers performing
the same jobs.

was unaware that he had drawn

monetary gift.
