U.S. Presidential Envoy Cyrus Vance carried to Ankara what a Greek foreign ministry source described as compromise pro- The plan Vance outlined reportedly called for withdrawal of Greek and Turkish troops from the island and guarantees for the safety of the Turkish Cypriot minority. The proposal seemed a substantial Greek concession in the face of a superior Turkish fighting force. A Turkish spokesman said the council of ministers would discuss the plan before a meeting later in the day of the nation's war planning group, the National Security Council. Cyprus' ambassador to the United Nations, Zenon Rossides, had charged earlier before the Security Council in New York that the Turks planned to attack by Sunday. This, he said, "is the knowledge of all governments." The new overflights by Turkish RF-84F jets today came shortly after the council voted unanimously to ask both Greece and Turkey to pull back from "the brink of war" and refrain from acts likely to aggravate the situation. Three bomb blasts, called the "work of Turkish saboteurs" by police, rocked Greek communities without causing damage or injury. There were also these moves toward peace: —The Security Council threw its support behind an appeal from Secretary General U Thant for "greatest moderation" and his recommendation that Greece and Turkey eliminate a pact which permits Greek and Turkish troop contingents on the island. —Manlio Brosio, secretary- general of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, arrived in Navy Closes Books on Arnheiter Case WASHINGTON (AP) — The secretary of the Navy has closed the books on the case of Lt. Cmdr. Marcus A. Arnheiter, who tried unsuccessfully to appeal his relief from command of a ship. The Navy said Friday night Secretary Paul R. Ignatius, Back Dollar 6 to the Last Bar of Gold 9 WASHINGTON (AP) — President Johnson and key American and international financial leaders have reaffirmed pledges to back the position of the American dollar "down to the last bar of gold." The promise came after a day of hyperactive gold buying in international markets in the wake of the devaluation of the British pound. The drive to buy gold was seen as part of a broad movement to change paper money for the solidity of metal. The dollars-for-gold rush was described as a temporary flurry by Pierre-Paul Schweitzer managing director of the 107-nation International Monetary Fund. He said in a Voice of America interview it will be halted by the determination of financial powers to support, the pound and maintain the value oi their own currencies. • White House and Treasury officials said they were fully con fident that American and world gold reserves were sufficient to prevent the dollar from following the pound into devaluation. Schweitzer said the United States "still has a very large gold reserve compared to its international obligations, and it is certainly quite adequate to meet any possible request for conversion." He said he expected action bj the fund's directors by Mondaj to establish a $1.4 billion credi by member nations to suppor the pound. Presidential press secretary George Christian reaffirmed fo newsmen in San Antonio, Tex. Dollar See Page 4 'after very personal considera- ion," has concluded "there is no valid reason for altering the !ecision that Lt. Cmdr. Arnhei- er's further assignment to command would be inappropriate." Ignatius refused Arnheiter's request to authorize a court of nquiry. Arnheiter was relieved after ;hree months in command of the 'adar picket ship USS Vance while patrolling South Vietnamese waters in 1966. The Arnheiter case attracted wide attention in Navy circles, with some retired admirals reported on his side. And Capt. Richard G. Alexander, recently designated skipper of the Vietnam-bound battleship New Jersey, personally appealed to Ignatius on behalf of the 42- year-old Arnheiter. Alexander, who has been in the Navy 24 years, told Ignatius in a written statement: "Mr. Secretary, what all of your officers will demand to know is just how in — this could happen in the United States Navy." Arnheiter was relieved after a Navy investigation concluded he stonved "gross lack of judgment and inability to command and lead people."

Judge E. B. Shaw of Oelwein did not immediately set a date for sentencing after the jury of eight women and four men returned its verdict after 11 hours of deliberation. Albers was accused in the shotgun death of his wife, Dora, 62, in their farm home near Nashua the .night of last Feb. 4. He had contended the shooting was accidental. Gold Dealers Report 'Near Panic' Buying LONDON (AP) — London gold dealers report buying orders are arriving in "near panic" proportions from all over the world in the challenge to the U.S. dollar touched off by Britain's devaluation of the pound. But Washington says the dollar is safe. British financial writers cast French President Charles de Gaulle as the villain whipping on speculators in hopes of ruining the dollar and making gold the No. 1 international currency. Neither the U.S. Treasury nor financial experts elsewhere joined in the finger pointing, however. In Paris Albin Chalan- don, an influential Gaullist deputy in the National Assembly, said the gold run was "not the fault of the French government" but could be traced simply to private.buyers who mistrust the present world financial setup. Chalanden said, "The French government in no way wishes the fall of the dollar and never wanted the fall of the pound. "It simply notes that the international monetary system Turks Demand War— —NEA Radio-TeJephoto Turks demonstrating against Greece crowd Istanbul streets. An estimated 80,000 marchers poured through the city chanting "Death to Greeks" and "We Want War" as tension mounted in the conflict over Cyprus. Morticians Group Faces Antitrust Suit MILWAUKEE, Wis. (AP) The Justice Department has charged the National Funeral Directors Association and its af- 'iliated local organizations with conspiring to eliminate compe- tion by not advertising the costs of funerals. The charges were in an antitrust suit filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Milwaukee. Atty. Gen. Ramsey Clark asked the court to order the alleged conspirators to eliminate all provisions which limit or restrict advertising of funeral costs. ''The freedom of the directors to advertise their own individua prices has been restrained,' comprises grave risks becausi if the American balance of pay ments deficit. France wants a i consequence that diverse Countries take measures in tim o avoid an international mone ary crisis in which all coun ries, including France, wouk )e the victims," he added. France did help to spur the bullion flurry, however, by announcing it again would demand U.S. gold for its dollar earnings. •In Washington, officials generally agreed that the U.S. gold supply could outlast the specula- ive fever. Reports channelled from Europe to Franz Pick, a New York expert on world finance, indicated that 370 tons of gold were sold on European markets from Wednesday through Friday's market close. Pick said $415 million was involved in that trading and estimated the U.S. jold loss at $600 million since he pound's devaluation one Gold ..... See Page 7 has bei Clark said. Howard Raether, executive secretary of the national group which has headquarters in Mil waukee, said the government' action would be discussed b; the association's executive com mittee.

Russia urged peace, but a :ommentator in the Soviet Com- nunist party newspaper Pravda accused "NATO agents" on Cy- nis of "artificially whipping up animosity." Cyprus, about 40 miles off the Turkish coast and 500 miles 'rom the Greek mainland, has been a center of stress for the two nations for centuries. The sland's 600,000 inhabitants are predominantly Greek Orthodox, Dut Turkey claims the territory as historically its own. The fear of open fighting, calmed somewhat since a crisis in 1964 and the establishment of U.N. peace keeping force, rose quickly after a clash Nov. 15 in which 25 Turkish-Cypriots were killed. Turkey charged that Greece was augmenting the 12,000 troops it reportedly has on the island and threatened to land its own forces unless they were withdrawn. The threat, backed up by Turkey's superior strategic position and greater military might triggered troop movements in Cyprus .... See Page 7 —NBA Telephoto Not Dead- Homeward bound, Pfc. John W.

New Red Raid at Dak To SAIGON (AP) - Communist troops fired 25 to 30 mortar shells today at American positions in the Dak To sector, which had been quiet for 24 hours after the bloodiest battle of the Vietnam war. A field dispatch said there were some casualties. American artillery responded with counterfire at suspected positions of the mortar crews, presumably detailed from five North Vietnamese regiments mauled in the three-week fight. The show of Red opposition in that region of the central highlands followed up 19 separate mortar and flame thrower attacks on South Vietnam* military posts, provin- ese cial capitals and hamlets from an area north of Saigon of the fertile Mekong delta in the south. 3 Arrested In Shooting DES MOINES (AP) - Three )es Moines teenagers were charged with assault with intent ;o commit murder Saturday in he wounding of another teenager Friday night.

Richard Marshall, Tom Latcham and Gary Bowers, all 19, were arrested. Traffic Toll Mounts, But Behind 1966 By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The number of deaths on the nation's highways mounted today as millions of Americans flocked to urban centers on Christmas shopping expeditions. The death toll continued to lag far behind last year's pace that led to 748 deaths during the 102- hour Thanksgiving holiday, a record for any holiday period. The count began at 6 p.m. local time Wednesday and will end at midnight Sunday. By early today 373 persons had died on streets and highways. As a basis of comparison, The Associated Press conducted a survey of traffic deaths during a nonholiday period of the same ength. The survey showed that 567 persons were killed from 6 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 8, to midnight Sunday, Nov. 12. The Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving are traditional- y the opening ; days of the Christmas shopping season. An jstimated one million persons Deaths .... See Page 4 Ho Reported Seriously 111 OSLO, Norway (AP) — President Ho Chi Minh of North Vietnam was unable to attend the Soviet Union's 50th anniversary in Moscow earlier this month because he was seriously ill and bedridden, the Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet has reported from Hanoi. The dispatch from correspondent Joergen E. Petersen said Ho continued to lead the government from his sick bed. SHOPPING DAYS TO CHRISTMAS Corn Yield is Estimated at 93.2 Bu. DES MOINES (AP) — For price support purposes, the Iowa 1968 corn yield is estimated at 93.2 bushels per acre by the Iowa Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation State Committee. That compares with an estimate of 90.7 bushels for the 1967 program. Total corn base acreage in Iowa for 1968 is estimated at nearly 13.6 million acres. The committee in a statement Friday said farmers participating in the corn price support and acreage diversion programs will be guaranteed payments at the same rate—on a statewide average—as this year. But some changes are expected in some counties. The announced average guarantee is $1.31 a bushel for corn, and $54.10 for each qualified acre diverted from production. Fred R. McLain, ASC committee chairman, said about 3.5 million acres of corn land is ex- jected to be diverted to the conservation reserve under the 1968 jrogram. He said Iowa farm- 2rs "will probably earn more than $200 million in price support and diversion payments." The price guarantee will be made to farmers diverting half their corn base acres. They will be paid the additional $54.10 average for each acre between 20 per cent and 50 per cent of their jase which is diverted from corn to conservation. The government said its troops killed at least 110 of the raiders in one attack near Phuoc Binh, about 70 miles north of Saigon. The Communist predawn attacks, most with mortars, left at least 34 persons dead—17 South Vietnamese soldiers and 17 civilians—and 140 wounded, including 92 military. Fourteen mortar shellings came in the delta, which the Viet Cong controls, in an apparent effort to show that the government cannot provide adequate protection for the people. U.S. troops operating north of Saigon also had a brief encounter today with an unknown sized Communist force. A company from the U.S. 25th Infantry Division on a sweep operation 36 miles northwest of Saigon came under heavy small arms, automatic weapons and grenade fire. The 15-minute firefight left two U.S. infantrymen dead and 23 wounded. Communist casualties were not known. In the attack near Phuoc Vietnam . . .

Late News Off Wire MOSCOW (AP) - The Soviet Union today launched its third Cosmos earth satellite in five days. The brief official announcement on Cosmos 193 said its purpose is to continue exploration of outer space, but gave no details. U.S. space experts have been reported as predicting the Soviet Union would send an unmanned spacecraft around the moon and bring it back. But nothing announced about Cosmos 193 indicated it will make such a flight. Cosmos 192 was launched Thursday and Cosmos 191 Tuesday. FARM TAXES UP- WASHINGTON (AP) - The Agriculture Department reported Saturday that real estate taxes being paid by farmers are marking their 24th consecutive yearly increase.
