Turks aim to
By The Associated Press
Turkey moved its invasion forces
in coordinated attacks yesterday
that brought within sight its ap-
parent goal of slicing off the nor-
thern third of Cyprus for an au-
tonomous Turkish region, then said
it might participate in peace talks.
The Turkish foreign minister,
Turan Gunes, said yesterday night
his government might be willing
to participate in a third round of
Geneva talks if "we are accorded a
more serious and responsive atti-
PREMIER BULENT ECEVIT said
that "what we actually tried to bring
about' at the second round in Geneva
"was in fact achieved by the Turkish
army within 24 hours."
The Geneva talks collapsed just before
dawn Wednesday over the issue of sepa-
rate enclaves for Turkish Cypriots -
outnumbered 4-1 by those of Greek origin
-and the new Turkish military effort
Turkish tanks rolled into the key Cyp-
riot port city of Famagusta on yesterday
evening, establishing a line from the cap-
ital of Nicosia to the east coast 35 miles
away and giving the invaders control of
the northeast corner of the island.
A UNITED NATIONS spokesperson
in Nicosia told a briefing the Turkish
offensive reportedly had reached Myr-
tou, about 20 miles northwest of Nicosia,
and there were unconfirmed reports the
Turks were advancing toward the large
town of Morphou, about 10 miles from
Myrtou. Morphou is believed to be the
western end of the line the Turks are
drawing across the island.
A spokesman at the United Nations in
New York - where the Security Council
issued its fourth cease-fire appeal yester-
day - said the Turkish commander in
Famagusta demanded the surrender of
the Greek Cypriot troops, who asked for
terms. The spokesperson said some
Greek Cypriot soldiers were taken pris-
The U. N. report said Turkish planes
attacked main roads to the city and four
Turkish ships were reported approaching
Famagusta harbor under air cover in
The U. N. command was trying to
arrange a new cease-fire inside Nicosia,
where small-arms fire was reported last
night along the "Green Line" separating
the Greek and Turkish communities.

Making a fast buck
One of many local adventurists struts his stuff at Sunday's rodeo in Saline. This
rough rider was required to maintain his perch for eight seconds in the grueling
event. Although rodeos are sometimes criticized for allegedly abusing animals,
the festivities drew a multitude of competitors and gawking spectators. See

Nixon subpoenaed for
testimony in aide's trial
WASHINGTON (MP-Former President
Richard Nixon, named as an unindicted
co-conspirator in the Watergate cover.
up case, was subpoenaed yesterday to
testify as a defense witness at the trial.
At the same time, Special Watergate
Prosecutor Leon Jaworski joined three
of the defendants in asking U.S. District
Judge John Siricia to delay the trial,
now scheduled to begin Sept. 9.
JAWORSKI SAID he needs more time
"in view of intervening circumstances
affecting the trial preparation of all
Among the three defendants seeking
delay is former presidential assistant
John Erlichman, whose attorney signed
the subpoena to be personally delivered
to Nixon at his seaside estate at San
Ehrlichman is one of six defendants
accused of trying to smother the original
investigation of the break-in at the Dem-
ocratic National Committee headquar-
ters more than two years ago.
THE SUBPOENA calls on Nixon to
appear at the courthouse at 9:30 a.m.
Sept. 9, the current starting date for the
trial, "and to remain until called."
The Watergate cover-up defendants
had asked for a delay because of the
publicity surrounding the case, especially
Nixon's resignation last week.
.But Jaworski said there was no need
to consider the pretrial publicity issue,
since his office needs time to review
and transcribe the 55 tapes that have
been turned over to Sirica for a review
SIRICA EXPECTS to complete that
review by the end of the week and has
already turned over more than half of
the subpoenaed conversations to Jawor-
ski's office. He has scheduled a hearing
for Monday on the postponement issue.
With three of the defendants joined by
Jaworski in a call for postponement, it
was likely Sirica would agree.
Whatever Jaworski's reasons request-
ing postponement, the effect would be
to make it possible for 'Nixon, if indicted,
to stand with the other defendants.
A SPOKESPERSON for Jaworski said
yesterday the special prosecutor's only
reason for the motion was to allow more
time to review the new presidential tapes
turned over within the last week.
Jaworski told Sirica: "It seems only
fair that the defendants be afforded a
reasonable opportunity to listen to the
tapes, verify the accuracy of the govern-
ments transcripts and integrate this
material into their trial strategy."
Aides to Jaworksi have said any de-
cision on whether to prosecute Nixon is
still weeks away. Whether a subpoena
seeking Nixon as a defense witness may
speed that decision is not clear.
