Trade outlook WASHINGTON (UPI) - President Ford Thursday moved closer to achieving one foreign policy success that eluded former President Nixon letter trade relations with the Soviet Union and settlement of the Jewish emigration question. It would come through a compromise with members of Congress, led by Sen. lfcnry M. Jackson, D-Wasb,. who insisted Australia says France exploded another bomb CANBERRA (UPI) - The Australian government accused France Thursday of exploding another nuclear bomb over the South Pacific, the fifth in a series Canberra charges has already scattered radioactive fallout over a wide area of Australia. In Paris, French government officials, as usual, refused to comment on the Australian report. It is the 58th recorded French nuclear test since France began testing 14 years ago. Army moves on Selassie ADDIS ABABA (UPI) The amy Friday stripped Emperor Haile .Selassie of his remaining powers and staged a show of strength through the capital. Western diplomatic observers said the military action could topple the civilian government of Prime Minister Michael Imru and lead to a full army takeover of the ancient empire on the horn of Africa. The Armed Forces Coordinating Committee said in an Amharic language radio broadcast it was dissolving the emperor's crown council his inner cabinet, his military advisory council and his court of justice. Since an army revolt in late February wtich sparked six months of urrest, the military has been methodically chipping away at the 82-year-old emperor's once Frozen feet cause alarm WARREN, Mich. (UPI) A woman removing plastic bags of meat from a freezer in this Detroit suburb nearly fainted when a human foot fell out of one bag. She thought she had discovered a murder victim and telephoned police. Police thought other parts of the victim were in the other plastic bags, but a search turned up another 17 human feet. Then Thursday the Clement Kem Hospital explained. The feet were for use in anatomy studies, but the hospital did not have a freezer. It rented space in a meat locker nearby. "We weren't hiding anything," said administrator Martin Rosenfeld. "I realize it's something you don't like to talk about. ' "Some people would not look at this as they would look at putting deer feet or bear feet in the public freezer," he said. "It has a different connotation." The feet were severed from cadavers and were used for a national podiatry seminar in June. :v if -i. ' ' : ; '' . -V; ,-..-V.: S V' ' " : V 'v.: : ::f ' a.. London (AP) Ousted Cyprus President Archbishop Makarios leaves 10 Downing street Thu Thursday after meeting with Brit ish Prime Minister Harold Wilson. that the Russians change their emigration policy toward Jews before Congress would grant the most-favored-nation status necessary for improving trade. The Russians have been trying to fight a wave of Jewish emigrants, many of them well educated and leaders in scientific and cultural fields, who wish to leave the U.S.S.R. The Soviets contended it is an internal problem, a point made earlier this year by Nixon, Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger and Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman J. William Fulbright, D-Ark. Jackson and other lawmakers have said no nation that oppresses a minority should receive special treatment from the United States. Jackson said he and his colleagues were seeking "realistic and free movement of Soviet Jews without interfering blatantly in the Soviets' internal policies." The reasons behind the change so far are unknown. Ambassador Anatoly Dubrynin met Ford in the Oval Office on absolute power and arresting his closest aides. Friday's announcement effectively stripped him of his remaining powers and completely isolated him from his closest advisers and from the rest of the country. Simultaneously with the radio Congressional Record humor brings little laughs on floor WASHINGTON (UPI) - The item, routinely dropped into the Congressional Record, seemed to praise former President Richard Nixon and recommended that President Ford appoint his predecessor vice president and then resign. But it was a phony, slipped into Thursday's remord aside the routine items in the staid daily diary of Congress. It caused more anger than laughter in the House, and one of the angriest congressman was Earl Landgrebe, R-Ind., a staunch Nixon backer. The item was under Landgrebe's name. The phony entry said: "Mr. Speaker, former President Nixon's mother was a saint, by his own admission in his farewell message to the White House staff. But he ommitted mention of his own saintly qualities in that wonderful and touching address. "Richard Nixon was profane, but more often he was simply unintelligible or irrelevant. He bombed Indochina back into the stone age, but he owned and loved a beauiful Irish setter, King Timahoe. He impounded funds intended for basic human needs, but he could play three different songs on the piano. "A terrible mistake has been made.

"There will le a real ceasefire on Cyprus," Kcevit told an Ankara news conference only hours after a land, sea and air attack carried the Turkish armed fonts to the wx'st coast of Cyprus, completing their 2 12 day old offensive. "The fighting oti Cyprus has almot cixk'd by now although there still may he some small .skirmlslirs going on," he Slid. llea7 fighting raged in Nicosia until Uk last and the sky was filled with columns of black smoke from burning Greek Cypriot installntioas.

Turkish Defease Minister llasan Ksat Isik promised that in a matter of hours tlio Turkish government would obey the U.N. Security Council's fourth cease-fire order. Turkey landed 30,000 troops on Cyprus July 20, five days after the Greek-led Cypriot national guard ousted President Makarios. The invaders expanded from tlx? northern port of Kyrenia and grabbed a I.TOmile slice of land. The fighting ebbed last week when bright Wednesday. On Thursday, according to Jackson, the President told him at a breakf ast meeting there was "significant Russian movement" Jackson said he would rewrite his amendment to permit the Soviet Union to get special trade credits and treatment. lie was not specific, indicated that it would probably give the President some discretionary authority to decide if normal trade relations and credit would be in the national interest so long as he found Soviet Jews were being allowed to leave without harassment At tape decision Ford, Jaworski WASHINGTON (UPI) - An angry President Ford and Special Prosecutor Leon Jaworski have blocked a move by Richard M. Nixon's lawyers to turn over broadcast, army units staged a show of strength through the capital streets with armed soldiers parading through some sections of Addis Ababa and American-built jets of the Ethiopian air force screaming over the emperor's two downtown palaces. heinous crime on the American people by viciously distorting the harmless tale of Watergate. Mr. Nixon is no criminal, but a patriot, loyal to his friends, determined not to embarrass his country. Who, after all, was he bugging at the DNC? Leftist fellow-travelers, Mr. Speaker. By God, I hope he listened closely. "Mr. Speaker, Mr. Ford must choose a vice president. To restore to a nation cheated of its rightfu, right-thinking and right-leaning leadership, an act of great statesmanship, compassion and wisdom by Mr. Ford would be his appointment of Richard Nixon as his vice president and his own subsequent resignation of the presidency. By this act our 38th president will leave office with a spotless record and will have courageoasly taken one remarkable action for which he shall never be forgotten." Speaker Carl Albert said he meant to "get to the bottom of this matter." Rep. Wayne Hays, D-Ohio asked the Justice Department to investigate and prosecute. And Landgrebe got unanimous consent to have the phony expunged from the cloth-bound record, but the day-to-day version, was already on its way to libraries, editors and other subscribers across the country. Greece, Turkey and Britain met in Geneva to negotiate a peace but the talks deadlocked over Turkish demands that separate regions ho created for tlte M),000 residents of Greek background and the 110.000 of Turkish descent. Turkey launched a second offensive from its northern beachhead Tuesday, Liking advantage of its stridor manpower and weapons to push east into Famagusta and west to Morphou Bay along the "Attila line" that cuts through Nicosia. The Turkish sweep to tlic west coast. Thursday nailed down tlie invaders' hold on the entire northern tier of the bloodied island. Greek Cypriot defenders scattered south from Nicosia. UPI correspondent Micliael Krats reported that the government of lYcsident Glafkos derides hastily vacated its offices in the south-central part of the capital because of heavy fighting raging in some parts of the city. A government sonne said Cleriiks moved to other offices in the city though unconfirmed rcprls said he fled with thousands of other Greek Cypriote to the? southern eo.. ;tal town of Limnssol. West of the capital near the airport Greek Cypriots and Turks buttled for a traffic circle leading to the bombdamaged airfield. The French and Italian embassies and the offices of the British Hieji Commission evacuated their premises because of heavy figliling in Nicosia, a diplomatic source told UPI Correspondent Michael Keats in Nicosia. Turkish forces pushed southwest from the mountains north of Nicosia and captured the town of liCfka, 28 miles west of the capital, to nail down their hold on the entire northern tier of the bloodied island before a cease-fire went into effort at 6 p.m. Cyprus time (7 p.m. Turkish time and 12 noon KDT.) liCfka, with a population of 3,600 Turkish Cypriots, was the main Turkish objective in the west More than 100,000 Greek Cypriots had fled from there and the other areas of the island a sovereign nation that has come under Turkish domination. Itadio Bayrak, the Turkish Cypriot voice, announced the capture of Lcfka and said Turkish Cypriot residents of the town who had been permed in by Gnek Cypriot National Guardsmen greeted the soldiers with jubilance. the White House tapes to the former President. White House officials, who declined to be identified for publication, indicated that Ford became upset when he learned that the lawyers, without Jaworski's approval, had ruled the tapes bolongod to Nixon. The officials said Ford fretted that his administration "was becoming tarnished" by the tapes issuo and so, "he put his foot down and 6akl 'I'm not going to have it'" Thus, in quick succession Thursday: Press Secretary J. F. terllorst announced that Nixon's White House counsel, J. Fred Buzhardt, who had participated in the informal ruling that the tapes belonged to Nixon,' had tendered his resignation and Ford accepted. Jaworski's office said in a kerao announcement that the White House had agreed to hold the remaining Nixon tapes and documents in its vaults while the issue was reviewed. On Wednesday, Nixon's chief Watergate attorney, James St. Clair, who resigned that day, and Buzhardt ruled that tho Nixon materials not yet subpoenaed and or made public were his own property, presumably to dispose of as Nixon wished. That announcement, channeled through the White House press office, erroneously said the decision had the endorsement of the special prosecutor and the Justice Department. Jaworski's Thursday announcement indicated this was not the case, and White House officials suggested privately that Ford had been angered by "all this Sold the Chevrolet Chevelle With a Pantograph Want Ad Nothing works like a Pantagraph Want Ad to wll a car no longer needed.

Famagusta, captured earlier today, is tlie stake that holds down the eastern end of the line, what the Turks call the "Attila Uinc" that runs fw miles westward from Famagusta through the heart of Nicosia to the town of li fka. Greece, at the last, ruled out a landing on Cyprus w hich would almcet certainly have brought war with Turkey. But in Alliens Greek military sources promised that Greek Cypriot guerrillas would wage an endless war against their haled Turkish conquerors in what they called a Turkish Vietnam. In announcing the rivl of tlie Turkish olfr nsive, Kcevit offered to resume peace talks with Britain, Greece and tlie lwt Cypriot communities. But diplomatic reports from Iowkm said none of tlie participants were rushing to reconvene the broken down Geneva conlerencc that. Greece troops in ATI IKNS ( UPI ) Greece will not send any troops to try to stop the Turkish invasion forces in Cyprus, Premier Con-stantine Karamanlis said Thursday. In a broadcast address to the nation, he said, "Armed opposition ... was mack impossible by reason of distance and also by reason of the accomplished facts of tlie Turkish military action, and it could not be attempted without the risk of weakening the defease of Gnece itself." Karamanlis' statement allayed fears that the two allies of the United States might go to war over Cyprus, which lies 50 miles off the Turkish coast some 5K) miles from Alliens. A high official warned that the 4,000 American servicemen stationed in Greece might be expelled because the Atheas government was upset that the United States did not all it could to stop tlie onslaught of Turk3 on Cyprus. Another spokesman, however, called that report "not precise and in any case premature." The high official also said Greek Foreign Minister George Mavros decided to turn down an invitation from Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger to come to angered revival of the tnpes issue." Ford instructed chief of staff Alexander ML Haig, himself a holdover, to get Buzhardt's resignation, the sources said, because Ford could no longer rely for legal advice on "Watergate holdovers who are just not believable anymore." He also ordered the White I louse to consult with Jaworski and the ensuing statement, issued by Jaworski's office, said: "It has been agreed that none of the files will be moved pending further discussion and the special prosecutor's office is satisfied with these arrangements."

In his radio and television address. Karamanlis said th invasion of Cyprus "posed an immediate and grave dilemma: should we oppose violence with violence, treachery with treachery?" He also said Greece would meet any threat on its own territory, adding, "Greece is, and will continue to be. invulnerable to any foreign aggression " Rockford men die in blast from invention ROCKFORD. 111. (AP) - An agrvld dream claimed the lives of two Rockford men, who were killed when a "perpetual motion" machine they were working on exploded. 'Hie men, Mark N. Richardson, 25. and John Billstrom, .18, were working in Billstrom's father's machine shop when the explosion occurred Thursday. Richardson was killed iastantly by a piece of metal striking him in the head, authorities said. Billstrom died of head injuries later in a Rockford hospital. There were no witnesses to the accident, but Billstrom's father, Edwin, said he heard an electric motor start, and shortly after that there was a terrific vibration and a series of crashes. Christine Richardson, Mark's sister, said he had quit his job as a draftsmanabout six months ago to devote all his time to perfecting, the perpetual motion device. "He has been working on it for six months," she said. "The idea was conceived sometime before that. The idea was to replace fuel with perpetual motion." c A I 4 1 It, J I i 1 1 Seal Harbor, Main (AP) Nelson A.
