Time measure goes to Senate WASHINGTON (AP) - A bill to take the nation off year- round Daylight Saving Time has been approved by the House and sent to the Senate. The measure, approved Monday, provides that clocks be set back one hour on the last Sunday in October and then set forward again on the last Sunday in February. Unless Congress passes other legislation, this four-month change will revert next year to the traditional formula of six months of standard and six months of daylight time. Year-round Daylight Saving Time was adopted last year as a fuel conservation step during the energy crisis.

Alcoa dropping foil By LOUISE COOK Associated Press Writer Forty-three years after it started making household aluminum foil, the Aluminum Co. of America has announced it will stop production of the shiny wrap by Dec, 31. Other major household foil manufacturers said they would continue production. It was too early to tell what effect Alcoa's action would have on the price of foil. According to some industry spokesmen, a more important factor is the steadily rising price of aluminum ingots. A spokesman for Reynolds Metal Co., the major producer of aluminum foil, said the base price of an aluminum ingot has risen from 25 cents a pound last December to 36 cents a pound at the beginning of August, Part of the reason is higher taxes imposed by the governments of countries like Jamaica that produce bauxite. There is about one-fourth of a pound—or nine cents worth —of aluminum in a 25-square-foot roll of regular Reynolds Wrap, a spokesman said. The rest of the price, which varies from area to area, but generally is less than 70 cents, covers such things as labor, packaging, production costs, advertising and markup. Alcoa said it was stopping production of Alcoa Wrap, Wear-ever Foil and private label brands for supermarkets and other retail stores because of a shortage of aluminum, not to divert the available aluminum into more profitable items.

By The Associated Press Warrants were issued in Nicosia today for the arrest of three persons in connection with the slaying of the U.S. ambassador to Cyprus, Rodger P. Davies. Davies was killed during an antUAmerican riot at the embassy in Nicosia on Monday, and Greek, Turkish and Cypriot leaders expressed shock and abhorrence over the slaying. The names of the three suspects and further details of the police investigation into the riot were not disclosed in an official Greek Cypriot government statement, announcing the issue of the warrants. New man coining in NICOSIA, Cyprus (AP) — There was an eight-foot bare patch along the corridor floor where the bloodstained carpet had been taken up. U.S. Ambassador Rodger P. Davies and a Greek Cypriot secretary had been shot to death there. A dozen young American diplomats were quietly going about their paper work. "We have the new man coming in this afternoon, we will have to get everything ready for him," said Lowell Citron, a political officer. A Greek police officer entered the embassy, politely introduced himself and three aides, and went into an inner office. Outside, two trucks were hauling off the burned out hulks of a dozen late model cars. An old man swept up the debris of broken glass and rocks in the parking lot. Two U.N. armored cars were parked at either end of the complex of buildings that fly the American flag. That was the scene at the American Embassy in Nicosia i this morning, the day after Davies and secretary Antonette Varnava died violently during a riotous attack on the embassy. The body of the ambassador lay in the main Nicosia mortuary, waiting to be flown to the United States on a plane being sent from Washington. The body of Miss Varnava is to be driven to her home village of Kormakiti, now in Turkish hands in northwest Cyprus,for ceremonial burial. Embassy officials showed newsmen where the ambassador had died, It was in a corridor that led from his second- floor office through the whole length of the building. The ambassador, several other Americans and three Greek Cypriot staffers had moved there when rioters began smashing windows with rocks and burning cars in the parking lot shortly after noon Monday. Then bullets began to fly. Ten bullet holes were in the masonry outside the ambassador's office. Nine other bullets had entered through his office window, seven burying into inner walls, and two others speeding down the corridor. These two killed the ambassador and the secretary. The holes in the walls indicated fire from .30-caliber automatic weapons, and embassy officials said apparently they were shot from a half- completed apartment building about 75 yards away. The ambassador's residence, in a penthouse in a seven-story section of the embassy compound, was also peppered with shots, these fired from the ground. The roof of his living room had several bullet holes. The embassy game plan in violent situations like this provides for the ambassador to take refuge in his residence bedroom, "the strongest part of the building," said Citron. But Davies preferred to stay with his staff, "because he didn't want to be hiding in his bathroom with the embassy under attack," Citron said. Two die in car wreck POCAHONTAS, Ark. (AP) — Two persons were killed and two injured late Monday night when a car ran off Arkansas 90, sailed over a creek 90 feet wide, hit the opposite bank and turned over, State Police said. Cpl. W. R. Evans identified the dead as Clara Jean Griffith, 18, and Susan Spears, 13, both of Ravenden Springs. Miss Griffith was identified as the driver of the car. Evans said the car ran off the shoulder of the road after going out of control on a curve. The car then traveled 390 feet down the shoulder before jumping the creek. The accident took place about 2.5 miles southwest of Ravenden Springs, which is about 19 miles west of Pocahontas.
