He served notice Greece Tvould fight any Turkish attack and said NATO should stand by Greece in defense. "We consider war insanity," Papandrcou said, "but if the Turks enter the insane asylum, we will also follow them, because defense is the highest and most sacred obligation." His speech, for the opening of the 29th Salonika International Trade Fair, was a reply to an address by Prime Minister Ismet I n o n u of Turkey on Thursday. Inonu told Greeks their support of President Ma-karios of Cyprus was leading Greece and Turkey both NATO members down the road to war. Inonu implied that Turkey would carry any Cyprus war to Greek territory. Papandrcou reiterated his view that the sole solution to the Cyprus problem is enosis union with Greece "the only guarantee for peace." At the United Nations today, Greece asked for an urgent meeting of the U.N. Security Council before Sept. 16 "in order to consider the rapid deterioration of Greek - Turkish relations." Greek Ambassador Dimitri S. Bitsios, in a letter to the Soviet president of the Security Council for September, said Turkey had been taking illegal and provocative measures against Greeks in Turkey. Turkey quickly countered with an announcement it will ask the council to meet "at the earliest possible moment." The Turkish delegation said the council should consider what it Hope Rides With 0G0 Cape Kennedy, Fla., Sept.5(AP) Scientists tried today to figure out how to turn the apparent failure of OGO, America's most advanced and most peculiar - looking scientific satellite, into success. Monday they will get their last chance to make OGO work. OGO, which resembled a huge, metal dragonfly, flew listlessly in perfect orbit between 175 miles and 92,721 miles above the earth. OGO, which stands for Orbiting Geophysical Observatory, was launched Friday night. Within three hours scientists at the Rosman, N.C., tracking stations discovered the malfunctions. Two booms, containing apparatus for experiments, failed to open. A 30-foot radio antenna for relaying information back to earth also failed to open.

Makarios Denies Quarrel With Athens (c) 1964 New York Times Nicosia, Cyprus, Sept. 5 President Makarios tonight denied reports of a rift between the Greek and Cypriot governments. He said the opinions of Greece and Cyprus on certain details with regard to the handling of the problems of Cyprus might not always "completely coincide." "This can not under any circumstances be interpreted as an indication of a difference or breach between the two govern ments," he declared in a state ment.

Troubled Nation Malaysia King To Curb Riots, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Sept.5(AP) The king proclaimed all Malaysia a security area today to combat Indonesian invader bands and to halt race rioting in Singapore believed fomented by Indonesian agitators. The sweeping powers to impose curfew, ban assembly and control the movement of citizens went further than Friday's state of emergency, which provided for quick trials and death penalties for anyone found carrying arms. The king, the raja of Perlis, acted as new rioting between Chinese and Malays in Singapore forced police to use tear gas to halt a rampage that left three cars in flames. The rioters took advantage of a lifting of the curfew to permit people to buy food. A 54-year-old woman was beaten to death when she w cut to a market. Lockport, N.Y., Sept. 5 (AP) Rep. William E. Miller opened his campaign for the vice presidency today with an all-out attack on his Democratic opponent and an assist from presidential candiate Barry Goldwater. "I run proudly with Bill Miller," Goldwater said, after announcing that, if elected, he would ask for automatic income-tax cuts annually. The Republican vice presidential candidate began his campaign formally in his native city of 27,000, where both his parents were Democrats until he entered politics. Miller lashed at his Democratic opponent, Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey, as a founder of an organization trying to subvert the U.S. government into a "foreign, socialist totalitarian ism. The crowd, estimated by sher iff's deputies at more than 20,- 000,,stood on the Niagara Coun ty Fairgrounds under a sunny sky, on a warm, later-summer day, to cheer Miller and Gold water. Introducing Miller, Goldwater said that "we come from different parts of the country but we believe alike . . . that the government founded 200 years ago is the best government for us." Miller cited Humphrey's con nection with Americans for Democratic Action (ADA) as a founder and former vice chair man and said that organization advocated policies ranging from repeal of internal security legislation at home to a "disastrous coalition program" in Southeast Asia. Most but not all top New York State Republicans were on the platform. The most not able absences were Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller, who turned down an invitation, and Sens. Kenneth B. Keating and Jacob K. Javits, who were not invited. Minneapolis, Minn., Sept. 5 (AP) Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey said tonight America needs a "can-do" President like Lyndon B. Johnson not "a man who specializes in driving away those with whom he disagrees." The Minnesota senator returned to the town he once served as mayor to kick off his campaign as Democratic nominee for vice president. In his first official campaign speech, Humphrey had high praise for his running mate, President Johnson, and a stinging comparison of Johnson and No Paper On Monday The Southern Illinoisan will not publish on Monday, Sept. 7, Labor Day. Business offices will be closed. STILL CRITICAL Dr. Archie Woolard, a Carbondale dentist injured in an East St. Louis auto accident Wednesday, remains in critical condition in St. Mary's Hospital. Takes Action Indonesians Indonesia using agents in Singapore and guerrilla units in Malaya and Malaysia's Borneo slates of Sarawak and Sabah threatened to touch off another full-scale conflict in Southeast Asia in its all-out campaign to crush Malaysia. Under the king's proclamation "we can now declare curfews anytime, anywhere," said the deputy prime minister and defense minister, Tun Abdul Razak. A delegation left for New York where the U.N. Security Council will meet Wednesday to debate Malaysia's complaint of "blatant and inexcusable aggression" by Indonesia. Indonesia has responded to the latest developments in the dispute by cancelling all military leaves and putting its huge military machine, equipped mainly by the Russians, on the alert. the Republican nominee for president, Sen. Barry Goldwater of Arizona. The speech wound up a day of festivities for Humphrey, first Minnesotan ever named to a national ticket. More celebration is on tap Sunday when he returns to his home town of Waverly, about 40 miles west of Minneapolis. Speaking at the University of Minnesota, where he was graduated in 1939 after 10 years of studies frequently interrupted by the Depression, Humphrey said the president must be a "true leader a giant of a man." University officials estimated Humphrey's audience at 3,500. The auditorium has a capacity of 4,800. Khanh Bids arfnership By Peter Grose (c) 1964 New York Times Saigon' South Vict Nam, Sept. 5 Major Gen. Nguyen Khanh moved a step closer to govern mental partnership with the Buddhists today. He obtained agreements from some of South Viet Nam's leading military commanders, targets of particular Buddhist hatreds, to leave the country. Reliable sources said Tran Thien Khiem, who has been at Khanh's side for seven months. is among the generals expected to go overseas soon in official or unofficial capacities. Others in the group have been linked with the predominantly Catholic Dai Viet faction which was the main political partici pant in Khanh's previous regime. The Dai Viet leader, former Deputy Premier Nguyen Ton Hoan, -resigned from Khanh's government in anger earlier this week and is scheduled to leave the country Sunday. What could be a far-reaching realignment of forces seemed to be under way, with Khanh turning his back on the military elements which supported him previously and choosing to gain a new power base in the national Buddhist movement if the Buddhists will have him. The motivation for the gen erals' prompt acquiescence to being eased out was obscure. Amid gossip of personal deals or certain private arrangements there was no reliable and in formed explanation. A further strange aspect of the last few days' backstage maneuvering was the relative silence of the Roman Catholic groups. They would seem to have everything to lose in a clear-cut accession to power of Buddhist leaders whose fear of the Catholic minority far exceeds their fears of communism.

For Buddhist Washington, Sept. 5 (AP) Democratic leaders of the Senate and House today aimed a one-two political punch at Rep. William E. Miller, Republican vice - presidential candidate, for Miller's opening attacks on Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey, his Democratic rival. Senate Majority Leader Mike Mansfield, D-Mont., called the attack on Humphrey "one of the most vicious, false and malicious documents in American political history." "Sen. Humphrey has publicly opposed and fought nearly all of the views ascribed to him by Rep. Miller," Mansfield said. House Speaker John McCor-mack, D-Mass., said that Miller had opened his campaign on Draff rr . i V-) x - -''--; LA President Johnson . . . haste makes waste? Washington, Sept.5(AP) President Johnson will meet with Ambassador Maxwell D. Taylor and other top advisors early next week in a broad review of the big U.S. effort to help South Viet Nam win the guerrilla war. Advance indications were that the review would focus on: Pressing existing military' plans against the Red Viet Cong more effectively. Possible broadening of economic aid to include welfare for South Viet Nam's cities, which have been hotbeds of dissension against the government. Taylor, due in Washington Monday, is bringing with him the U.S. aid chief in Saigon, James S. Killen, and the director of the U.S. propaganda operation there, Barry Zorth-ian. Hong Kong LBJ, Taylor To Huddle 15 Killed In Typhoon Hong Kong, Sept. 5 A typhoon named Ruby raged across Hong Kong today like a furious beast. At least 15 persons w ere killed and more than 250 injured as the storm raked the colony with 120 mile per hour winds. Sweeping in from the Pacific and into Communist China, the typhoon uprooted huge trees, flipped over cars and demolished old houses. Torrential rains caused widespread flooding. The death toll was expected to rise. The storm was most severe during early afternoon. Police rescue squads were expected to work through the night searching for survivors where destruction was the heaviest. More than 20 ships broke away from their moorings in the harbor and were buffeted a "note of deceit and deception, half-truths and visious personal attack." Miller, in his first major campaign address at Lockport, N.Y., called Humphrey's record "clearly one of the most radical in Congress" and criticized Humphrey's connection with American for Democratic Action which backs what it terms liberal causes and issues. McCormack's statement, distributed by the Democratic National Committee, said almost everyone knows, "and so should Miller," that Humphrey has opposed recognition of Communist China, had advocated retention of the Panama Canal, continuing aid to Viet Nam and inter-American resistance against the Castro regime. Qo UflC 7 kj) Johnson Says Might Cost Washington, Sept. 5 (AP) President Johnson suggested today that a quick end to the military draft might cost several billion dollars. But he didn't rule out the possibility that the draft may be halted next year. This was the highlight of a 35-minute news conference in which Johnson announced some notable military and nuclear advances and, in a statement of philosophy, urged that a 1 1 Americans resist "the spiritual cancer of hate." In discussing the draft, Johnson took a more cautious position than the one voiced earlier this week by Sen. Barry Gold-water, the Republican presidential candidate, who made a campaign promise to end the draft "as soon as possible." Goldwater accused Johnson of using the Selective Service system for "political and social schemes." The President said a distinguished member of one of the congressional armed services committee, whom he did not name, estimates "it would cost us several billions to act precipitously" to halt the draft. Bonuses, Benefits Johnson didn't elaborate on this theme. However, Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara has suggested that, without the draft, the armed forces would have to pay more in re-enlistment bonuses and might be forced to increase pay and fringe benefits to attract enough volunteers. When asked about Goldwat-er's statement on the draft, Johnson noted that the Administration has been studying the about like toys. At least one sank, two collided, one rammed a wharf and 10 went aground. As winds whipped through the streets plate glass exploded from shop fronts with the suddenness of balloons bursting. The typhoon broke windows of apartments in the colony's fashionable "Peak" and flooded them with rain. It also shattered ramshackle homes in sbantytown areas where half a million "squatters" live. There were many acts of heroism. A police inspector, W. R. Deane, dived into the harbor to rescue a woman whose junk had overturned. The Olympic flame, which arrived here Friday enrojte from Greece to next month's games in Tokyo, was delayed by the typhoon. It will leave here for Japan Sunday, a day behind schedule. n) y j Miller attacks Democratic candidate Irx J Haste possibility of ending the Selective Service for several months. He said the aim is to determine the effect on mobilization and the impact on costs. Some interim findings may be available within the next few-weeks, "and probably some definite conclusion early in the spring," Johnson said. One of the 40 newsmen gath ered around the President's desk wondered aloud if Johnson shared the 1956 view of former President Dwight D. Eisenhower that the draft should not be made a campaign issue. "Yes," the President replied, "I would agree with Gen. Eisenhower on a good many things and always have." Asked whether he was now prepared to debate Goldwater on regularly scheduled television news programs, Johnson replied, "I haven't reached any decision on that." Washington, Sept. 6 (AP) President Johnson praised highly today 70 years of gains by the nation's workers since the first Labor Day, but declared, "We still have far to go." His Republican opponent for the presidency, Sen. Barry Goldwater of Arizona, pledged himself "to the free cause of free collective bargaining," declaring: "No one with eyes to see can fail to be alarmed by the dark cloud of compulsory arbitration that is casting its shadow across the rights of working men and women. Beatle 'Votes' For Johnson ChicagoSept. 5 (AP) Britain's relaxed Beatles talked of American politics, police, crowds, home and money tonight prior to what was ex pected to be another noisy concert. When asked whether they prefer President Johnson or Sen. Barry Goldwater of Arizona as the American president Paul McCartney responded: "From what I've heard Mr. Goldwater say, Johnson should be the next president." (c) 1964 New York Times Washington, Sept. 5 . President Johnson has in his possession political polls which show that he is leading Sen. Barry Goldwater in the latter's home state, Arizona. The President's indications are that he is the Arizona favorite at the present time by a margin of 45 per cent to Gold-water's 40 per cent, with 15 per cent still undecided. While he is heartened by the polls, he regards them with enough skepticism to realize that the wide margins now ap parent will narrow as the campaign proceeds.
