Ghana (AP) — Power shifted yesterday between two men who toppled President Kwame Nkrumah in 1966. Lt. Gen. Joseph A. Ankrah resigned the chairmanship of the ruling National Liberation Council and was succeeded by its youngest member, Brig. Akwasi Afrifa. In Washington, Ghana's' embassy said Ankrah quit after allegations about his involvement in fund-raising activities for political purposes. Informed diplomats in London expressed belief the unanimous election of Afrifa by the council ensures continuation of Ghana's present pro-Western policies. Ankrah, Afrifa and Col. Emmanueal Kotoka led the uprising that removed Nkrumah from power while the president was visiting Red China. Israelis alert as Passover opens United Press International JERUSALEM - Israelis burned all ordinary bread in their households yesterday signaling the sundown start of the eight-day Passover holiday, during which time they may eat only matzah or unleavened bread. Passover marks the escape of Moses and his people from . the Egyptian domination, and Jews opened the holiday last night with the traditional Seder, or Passover supper. For some, the religious feast will be celebrated along cease-fire lines overlooking Egypt, Syria and Jordan. Israeli army units in these areas will hold Seders in s h i f t s v within sandbagged bunkers while maintaining a constant watch. They have been issued a shortened version of the Ha- gada, the book of the Passover ritual, and pencil flash- lights to read the prayer. Army chaplains said twice as many Seders were held last night as in 1968 in camps along the cease-fire line. Transpqrtation facilities were crowded as thousands of persons traveled home for the start of the holiday. Extra buses were scheduled to make special trips out of the Kibbutzim, or settlements. After last night's ceremonies, Israelis traditionally took to the roads for extended visits around the country. Christians in Jerusalem and on the Mount of Olives observed Holy Week. Early yesterday morning a large group led by Franciscan friars marched in processions to the Basilica of Gethsemane for a Solemn High Mass. The church stands below the garden where Christ spent the hours of His agony before being seized by soldiers. 4314 N. 7th AYE. • 265-5593 OPEN 'TIL 9 P.M.

Associated Press ACUPULCO, Mexico - Sofia Celorio de Bassi, wealthy socialite artist, was convicted yesterday of the fatal shooting of her Italian nobleman son-in-law and was sentenced to 11 years in prison. Mrs. Bassi, 59, maintained her shooting of Count Cesare d'Acquarone of Verona at her villa on Jan. 3, 1968, was an accident. Defense and prosecution lawyers filed appeals. The prosecution had asked that Mrs. Bassi be convicted of intentional homicide and be given the maximum sentence of 30 years. Judge Hugo Perez Bautista, Jn pronouncing sentence, decided on a charge of simple intentional homicide carrying the lesser penalty. Mrs. Bassi, dressed in red shorts and a white blouse, was painting at an easel in her jail cell when Alberto Jimenez Gonzalez, a court secretary, came to read her the formal decision. "I am not in agreement because I am innocent," she told him. Mrs. Bassi, an attractive grandmother, has been in the Acapulco jail since the night the fatal shots were fired at the edge of the swimming pool of the family villa. Los Angeles Times Service MOSCOW — President Nixon's era of negotiation, of consultation rather than confrontation, is off to a quiet, low-key start on the Soviet- American front. It is understood the White- House intends, if possible, to move with patient restraint and even caution in its relations with the Kremlin in coming months. This approach to the Soviet leadership was revealed yesterday as the new U. S. ambassador to Moscow, Jacob D. Beam, began his first full clay as head of the American diplomatic mission. Beam is expected to meet with Soviet President Nikolai V. Podgorny within the next few days. The ambassador a}so hopes to have an early discussion with Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko. Diplomatic sources said Beam carries no secret message from the President to top Soviet leaders. In the absence of any special initiative from the White House, the 61-year-old career diplomat will try to create an atmosphere for rational discussion between Moscow and Washington. The emphasis at the moment is on an orderly dialogue with the Soviet leadership, but always aware of the need for careful consultations with America's closest allies. As Beam picks up his new duties here, he was understood to feel that progress on the Vietnam and Middle East crises could make a significant contribution to U.S. efforts to reach even a limited understanding with Moscow. In the immediate weeks ahead, Beam is expected to focus close attention on the Kremlin buildup for a world Communist Party conference due to convene in Moscow June 5. Beam's arrival in this capital coincides with a moment, of genuine crisis tor the Soviet leadership. The Kremlin leaders are faced with serious political deterioration in Czechoslovakia and the pros- pect of renewed border hostilities with China, of the sort, that led to armed collisions and bloodshed last month. The ambassador's past diplomatic experience would seem to make him an ideal choice for the Moscow post during this period. He has just completed a three-year lour as. ambassador to Prague, where he watched both the Soviet invasion and subsequent occupation of Czechoslovakia. From 1957 to 1962, .he served as ambassador to Poland. In this capacity he was the chief U.S. representative to the periodic Warsaw Talk.s with the Chinese.
