Premier Constantine Cara- manlis said the lifting of the restrictions "constitute the most important offer for the re-establishment of democratic legality." Interior Minister Christopher Strapos announced that any civilians and technicians who worked for the military regime would also be allowed to participate in the elections. The date for the balloting has not been made public, but most observers expect it to be before the end of November. It wW be the first free national election in Greece in 10 years.

(AP) —A two- month residency in a 12-year- old battered school bus has ended for Mr. and Mrs. Marion Roberts and their seven children. The family had lived in their bus since vandals broke the windows of a house they were renting in Omaha and they decided toimove out.- Mrs. -Roberts said the family was unable to find a landlord who would accept a family with seven children. Roberts said government-assisted housing was unavailable because he made between $10,000 and $12,000 a year, and he could not afford the rent of places which would accept the large family. After a newspaper published a story about the family's plight, offers of housing came from parts of Omaha, western Iowa and eastern Nebraska. On Monday, the Roberts family rented a three-bedroom frame home owned by Mrs. Robert Bragg, widow of a former Omaha policeman, Mrs. Bragg said the rent terms wen, payment of $100 monthly with the second month free in exchange for maintenance work to be done by Roberts. "All the children were just absolutely thrilled when they were going through the house," Mrs. Bragg said. "They were deciding who would sleep in which bedroom." "I've been there myself, so I understand," Mrs. Bragg said. She explained that she and her husband had four children and were turned down in attempts to rent housing. Lack of a permanent address had prevented the Roberts' six school age children, ranging in age from 7 to 15, from attending school. Joseph Hanna, associate superintendent of the Omaha Public Schools, said "safety and accountability" were reasons for requiring a permanent address. Placing pupils in their geographical areas provides a "dependable point of contact with the parents," he said. Mrs. Roberts said her children would be in school today. "We all feel just wonderful," she said. Roberts, 36, is a heavy equipment operator. He said his income had dropped sharply during the recent building slump, but not to a level that would qualify the family for government-assisted housing. During the two months, Roberts drove the bus to recreation areas at night where the family had access to toilet facilities, showers and picnic tables. Mornings, Roberts drove the family to nearby Elkhorn to eat breakfast at his father's house. —Clyde Davis photo prize was won by Dennis Washington for his 47-pound melon.

Who is frontrunner? it's too early to tell —Bill Wray photo with Star camera CHARLES MITCHELL talks to local club District engineer talks about highways Kissinger occupied with Cyprus problem UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) — Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger comes to grips today with the stubborn problem of Cyprus and the strained relations between the United States and Greece. Kissinger scheduled separate meetings with Greek Foreign Minister George Mavros and Turkish Foreign Minister Turan Gunes, who are attending the United Nations General Assembly. There was speculation that Kissinger might visit Cyprus during his trip to the Middle East in October and try to break the deadlock over the future of the Mediterranean island- Kissinger offered a month ago to go to Cyprus and mediate between Greece and Turkey, but the Greek response was chiUy. The Greeks blamed the United States because it did not prevent the Turkish invasion of Cyprus and then did not check the invasion force before it completed Us conquest of the northern third of the island. There were anti-American demonstrations in Athens and other Greek cities, and "Kissinger! Murderer!" was a favorite cry of the demonstrators. Mavros also spoke to the assembly on Monday and termed Turkey's occupation of northern Cyprus "the rape of a small, nonaligned country by its far stronger neighbor." He asserted that if the United Nations failed to force the Turks to withdraw from Cyprus, it would founder "in the morass of ... moral weA ness" and this could kill the world organization. Turkish Ambassador Osman Okay took the floor to accuse Mavros of gross distortion. He said Turkey sent troops to Cyprus to save it from becoming a province of Greece. Turkey's intention, he said, was to allow Cyprus to become "independent, nonaligned, if it so desires." Among the speakers to the assembly today were Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko of the Soviet Union. Charles Mitchell, Arkansas Highway Department district engineer, spoke to the Hope Rotary Club Friday, at a luncheon meeting at the Town and Country and compared our highway system and our circulator system. One is as vital to the functions of our economy as the other is to the functions of our body. The Arkansas Highway System is composed of 16,000 miles of roads with 4,000 em- ployes governed by five conv missioners, who serve two-year staggering terms. The new district headquarters building in Hope is the last of the five district buildings to be built, and all who haven't seen it were invited to visit it. A documentary film about the highways in Arkansas was shown with special emphasis on tourist attractions. In Southwest Arkansas these included Lester Kent and his championship watermelons and Pioneer Washington. Don Williams arranged the program and introduced the speaker. Kenneth Caery was welcomed as a new member after Albert Graves had formally inducted him into the club. President Gerald Keith had charge of the business, and members of the club introduced student guests, Mike Hartsfield and Dwayne Stewart, local guest Calvin Caldwell, and visiting Rotarian Earl Secrest of Flint, Mich., who is a native of Hope and was captain of the Arkansas Razorback football team at the U of A in 1931. The club sang Happy Birthday to Travis Mitchell, and a short board meeting was called. CAPOB1ANCO TO SAN PIEGO SAN DIEGO (AP) — Tito Capobianco, opera producer and director, has been named artistic director elect of the San Diego Opera, effective this season. He will become artistic director upon Walter Herbert's retirement after the 1976-77 season. By LOUISE COOK Associated Press Writer State Democratic chairmen say it's too early to tell who is the frontrunner for the 1976 presidential nomination in the wake of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy's withdrawal. An Associated Press survey showed that Sens. Henry M. Jackson of Washington and Walter F. Mondale of Minnesota were the most frequently mentioned contenders, with Sen. Lloyd Bentsen of Texas a close third. Kennedy, considered by many to be the leading contender for the nomination, said Monday he would not be a candidate for president or vice president in 1976 because of family responsibilities. The AP tried to contact all the Democratic state chairman to ask who they thought the frontrunner was and who they personally felt had the best chance of defeating President Ford two years from now. Thirty-two of the chairmen said there was no clear choice, six named Jackson as the frontrunner, three named Mondale, one named Bentsen and one named Sen. Edmund S. Muskie, who, like Jackson, unsuccessfully sought the nomination in 1972. Eight of the chairman were not available for comment. The total is 51 because the two factions of the Mississippi party — the regulars and the predominantly black loyau'st group — were counted separately, "I don't think there is one (frontrunner) now," said Paul Lamboley of Nevada. "I think it's really a toss-up. We're going to see a real scramble now." The contenders themselves expressed a similar view. Jackson said in Washington that the race is "wide open now." Mondale said Kennedy's action makes him "strongly inclined" to run. Jackson was the most often named by all the chairmen — those who definitely thought he was the frontrunner and those who said there was no clear choice so far. The Washington senator was mentioned as a possible candidate by 19 state chairmen. Mondale came in second, named as a potential top contender by 18 of the state chiefsn and Bentsen was third with 13 mentions.
