The idea was the subject of hearings held four months ago by a Senate Judiciary subcommittee and got a thumbs-down response from virtually every witness. : A m o n g those testifying against it were Archibald Cox, the first special Watergate prosecutor who was fired on President Nixon's order, and former Altys. Gen. Ramsey Clark and Nicholas deB. Katzenbach. Cox said "the primary responsibility for preventing and exposing wrongdoing high in the executive branch" lies with the president and he should not be relieved, of this responsibility or of the consequences of not fulfilling it. Establishing a permanent office of special prosecutor, he testified, would dilute this re- sppnsibility and be "a grave mistake." FIRST RECOMMENDATION The Watergate commiltee's first recommendation was lo establish a permanent office ol public attorney to investigate and' prosecute criminal cases involving high government officials. The committee proposed the public attorney be appointee for five years, subject to Senate confirmation, and "be chosen by members of the judicia branch to ensure his independ ence "from execulive control or influence." The hearings held earlier by the Judiciary subcommittee were on two bills, one by Sen .T. Ervin Jr., D-N. C., to make the -Justice Department an in dependent agency and anothei by Sen. Alan Cranston, D-Calif. to provide for a study of setting up a permanent special prose culor. Clark^ who was appointed by the late President Lyndon B Johnson, teslified he opposci bolh bills "as wrong in spiri and ineffective in purpose." Katzenbach, first brought int the Justice Department in th Kennedy administration, sai the president has a con stitutional responsibility t faithfully execute the laws and if that is diluted, "we create a open invitation to irresponsibl government." Others who expressed oppos lion or reservations include former Supreme Court Justic Arthur Goldberg; former Atty Gen. Richard G. Kleindienst Robert G. Dixon, head of th Justice Department's Office ( Legal Counsel, and Burke Ma shall, deputy dean of the Yal Law School and a former a sistant attorney general in th Kennedy administration. However, hers said Katzenbach and that at times the ppointment of a special prose- ulor may servo to enhance ublic confidence. The legislation never was act- d on. Sen. Howard H. Baker Jr., R- Tenn., vice chairman of the Watergate committee, said he had great doubts about the constitutionally of its recommendation for judicial appointment of a special prosecutor. NEWS BRIEFS Refusal Reaffirmed JERUSALEM (AP) -- The sraeli government has reaffirmed its refusal to give up the rab sector of Jerusalem and Iso rejected a left-wing cabi- et minister's proposal to nego- ate an independent Palestin- an stale in 'exchange for Arab ecognition of Israel. The cabinet in a six-hour neeting Sunday also voted [own negotiating a troop dis- ngagement pact with King Hussein of Jordan. Informed sources said the lard stand on the Palestinian iroposal was in part a. reaction o a joint declaration last week by Egypt and Jordan that the guerrilla umbrella group known as the Palestine Liberation Or- Sanizalion (PLO)' was the sole 'ecognized representative oi Palestinians everywhere except n Jordan. Would 'Approve NEW YORK (AP) -- Time magazine says- if House Judiciary Committee members vote the way they were leaninj ast week, they would approve rhpeachment of President Nix on by a 26-12 tally. However, Time said since 'many of the members have been jumping back and forth almost by the minute, seemed unlikely that all mem jers would vote according to their leanings of last week."

Except for the sons, all of the (CONTINUED ON PAGE TWOJ WASHINGTON (AP) intelligence misread Turkish military intentions towards Cyprus, administration officials acknowledge. "It was our conventional wisdom that the Turks could be talked out of landing on Cyprus," one official said. "Obviously, we were wrong." History played a part in the misjudgment by U.S. intelligence as well a number of governments, including the British, with whom the United States consulted as the crisis deepened. Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger recalled Saturday that during the 1964 and 1907 Cyprus crises the Turks embarked troops, but did not invade the. island. Therefore, Kissinger said, many members of the intelligence community and foreign governments thought this sailing of troops from southern Turkey m i g h t again be a maneuver to bring pressure on Greece in diplomatic negolia- ,ions, rather than a forerunner of invasion. Earlier, the sailing came as a surprise to itself many U.S. officials, although they were aware Turkey h a d concentrated troops and tanks on its soulhern coast. Pentagon sources reported the Turks had closed off the area around the port of Mersin, excluding U.S. attaches and other-observers. Pentagon officials insisted all last week that the United States was not conducting aerial reconnaissance over southern Turkey and Cyprus, or the waters between. They said t h e y were depending on the British for that kind of information as the United States strove to maintain a low military profile in the situation. But even with knowledge lhat the Turkish forces had sailed, officials said they had no way of knowing what the Turks intended. U.S. intelligence has come under criticism in two major crises in the past sfo years. It vas accused of failing to anticipate the Soviet invasion of 3zcchoslovalua in 1968 and ot misinterpreting tht signs of an mmincnt Arab attack on Israel last October. Meanwhile, there are ' indications Turkey may have reconsidered briefly before taking th plunge into Cyprus. Kissinger said he first was informed Friday evening that the Turkish fleet was heading for shore, but lhat later information indicated the ships h a d turned around and withdrawn outside Cyprus' territorial waters. But Kissinger said that about 25 minutes later, amid frantic efforts lo gain a 48-hour respite for last-ditch negotiations, he got word lhat the Turkish force had reversed course again and a special U.S. envoy was informed that the Turkish government had decided lo land on Cyprus. Strikers End Walkout At Copper Firm By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS About 10,000 employes of the Kennecott Copper. Co. have returned to work, ending a weeklong strike against the nation's largest copper producer. But walkouts continued Hill Arrested In Louisiana Fayetteville police s a i d this morning that Plutarcho Columbus . Hill, 49, -- wanted in the May 31 armed robbery of the Fayetteville Safeway S t o r e -has been arrested in Caddo Parish,, La. for an armed robbery there. Sgt. Bill Brooks said he learned that Hill has been in custody at Shrevoport since July 13 and lhat detainers from several states, including Arkansas have already been filed against him. About §16,000 was taken in the Safeway robbery. Dramatizing Plea John Sawhill, federal energy administrator, appears without coat or lie to dramatize his plea for higher air conditioning settings.

(AP) -- s h e felt her sex might influence at least 30 helicopters ferried troops from landing vessels. [ The dispatch went through' ireck Cypriot censorship before being transmitted, and it did not say what time the rein- 'orcements had arrived. Associated Press correspondent Holger Jensen reported from the northern port of Ky- renia, that heavy fighting was going on three hours before tha cease-fire was to begin. Jensen, who was later cap- lured by the Turks along with two other American correspondents, said Turkish jets were bombing and strafing Greek Cypriol posilions as both sides fought lo improve their positions. South of Kyrenia, Greek Cypriot artillery shells burst along the top of mountains where Turkish troops had dug in. AP photographer Paul ROCHIB returned to Nicosia from Ky- rcnia with the report lhat he saw two Turkish destroyers bombarding the port city. AGREEMENT ANNOUNCED Turkey announced at about 3:30 a. in.. EDT, that it had agreed to the cease-fire and the Urcek military junta annouced :ts agreement about two hours [aler. Greece has mobilized its army reserves and rushed reinforcements to ils border with Turkey, but it has landed no additional troops on Cyprus since the Turkish invasion Saturday. The cease-fire agreement appeared lo avert the immediate threat of war between the two easternmost members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. Earlier Sunday, prospects for a political solution in Cyprus appeared to improve when the Greek ambassador to the United Nations said his government accepted "in toto" the cease-fire resolution the United N a t i o n s Security Council adopted on Saturday. In addition to ils call for an end to the fighting and to for- Cyprus, the resolution called lor immediate withdrawal of the Cypriot National Guard's Greek officers who led the coup against Makarios. The resolution also/called for ncgolialiohs by Greece, Turkey and Britain--the three guarantors of tha independence of Cyprus--for the restoration of constitutional government on the island. Reports from Cyprus Sunday said the Turkish invaders were in control of the highway be- ,wcen Kyrenia, on the north,' coast, and Nicosia, the capitaJ- 10 miles to " " ' Greek army . ... . _ _ ported to have cut the highway' at Guenelili, two miles norlh of. Nicosia. Heavy fighting also was reported around the Nicosia airport, which.was reported still in Greek Cypriot hands. T u r k i s h jets repeatedly iombed and strafed Nicosia on Sunday, and sniper fire was reported along Ihe boundary between the Greek and Turkish Cypriot sectors of the city. Diplomats in Nicosia s a i d Lhey had reports that the Greek Cypriote in the National Guard were slaughtering large num- at the south. But troops were re-' bers of raids on Turkish Turkish Cypriols in villages and WASHINGTON (AP) -- The House Judiciary Committee is preparing lo vote on whelher its historic impeachment debate should be televised. The debate begins Wednesday and could last into next week. A change in House rules would be needed to allow the television cameras into committee sessions and a resolution proposing Ihe change is scheduled for House action shortly before the committee meets this afternoon. At an earlier closed session, the committee will receive a brief of arguments against im peachmcnt presented by Sam Garrison, newly designated by the Republican committee members as their minority counsel. Albert Jenner, who had held that position from the start of the inquiry, with Garrison as his deputy, will remain on the staff as associate counsel work ing under special counsel John Doar. Jeiiner had made it clear 'rom the start that he regarded limselt as working for the committee, not the Republicans, and they repeatedly have turned to Garrison when they "elt the need for partisan services. The Republicans' patience with Jenner, a prominent Chicago lawyer, snapped last week when Jenner endorsed Doar's conclusion that Nixon had abused his powers of office and should be impeached. Garrison, who served pre viously as an aide to former Vice President Spiro T. Agnow, has been asked by the Republicans to rebut the case for impeachment presented by Doar and Jenner. In a preview of the impeachment debate, Rep. Don Edwards, D-Calif., said Sunday the Doar-Jenner brief provide an overwhelming case" for charging Nixon with serious misconduct, while Rep. Charles E. Wiggins, R-Calif., said it "ailed to link Nixon with any impeachable offense. Reps. Walter Flowers, D- Ala., and Robert McClory, R[II., who also took part in a televised discussion s a i d they were having a hard time making up their minds. Meanwhile, presidential spokesman Ronald L. Ziegler Sunday again criticized the Judiciary Committee and said charges against Nixon are unsubstantiated by fact. In another development, Judiciary Committee transcripts released over the weekend show lhat President Nixon expressed concern that he may have inadvcrlcnlly ignored a Walergate cover-up plot. The transcript was of a June 4, 1973, conversation with Ziegler, in which Nixon discussed con- vcrstions ho had in February and March 1973 with former aides. Nixon is quoted as saying to liegler: "I mean, God, maybe we were talking about a cover- up--Watergate. I really didn't. didn't know what Ihe hell--I lonestly didn't know." Flowers and McClory said during the television discussion that one of the things lhat both cred them most as they tried to make up their minds was Nixon's refusal to comply with J u d i c i a r y Committee s u b poenas. Wiggins repeated a prediction he made last week that the committee would not vote for impeachment, while McClory restated his opinion that, with (he help of three or four Republicans, the committee would vote impeachment and so would the House. All four members rejected criticism of the commiltce by Ziegler, who said its inquiry was "a kangaroo court," Congresswoman Ella Grasso, who could become Ihe first woman in American history to be elected governor wilhoul the help of her husband's coattails, says her sex won't make a difference at the polls. And she says neither she nor Secretary of S t a t e Gloria Schaffer will lose voles because Ihere are two women on the ticket, a first for either major party in Connecticut. "I think we are two persons who are also women," Mrs. Jrasso, 55, said after her unan- mous nomination Saturday by he Democratic stale convention. "It's a natural fact and I feel lhat what we bring by virtue ol our lifetimes of public service and dedication are the factors on which we will be judged." If Mrs. Grasso is elected in November, she will be the first woman in the country to be come governor wilhoul sue ceeding her husband in office. THREE BEFORE There have been three worn en governors but each sue ccedcd their husbands. They were: Nellie Taylor Ross o Wyoming in 1D25, Miriam Fer guson of Texas in 1925, and Lurleen Wallace of Alabama in 1967. Tho selection of two women on Ihe six-person state ticke "makes political history in tin country," Mrs. Grasso said "But in Connecticut we've earned our chance and our can didacics have been accepted In that light." At one time in her campaign jeople to vote a certain way. "I thought this might have ieen an issue because I had teen told it would be. But interestingly this has not emerged," he said. Starting in 1953, Mrs. Grasso icrved four years in the state House of Representatives. She vas elected secretary of the state in 1958 and held the post or 12 years. In 1970 she was elected lo her ith District congressional scat, succeeding Thomas J. Meskill, who was making a successful run for governor. Mrs. Grasso was followed as secretary of the state by Mrs. Schaffer, now seeking a second four-year term. She and her husband Thomas, a retired school principal, have two children, Susanne and James, both teachers who live with their parents in Windsor Locks. ONLY TIME She said the only time a person told her he would not vole for her because she is a woman was when she was campaigning at a factory gate during her 1970 congressional campaign. "Two years later I met him at the same factory gate and his grecling was much more cordial," she added. The Republican nominating convention will meet Saturday in Hartford to choose gubernatorial and other state candidates. Rep. Robert H. Steele and Bridgeport Mayor Nicholas Panuzzio arc considered the fronlrunners for tha governorship nomination. Players' Associalion unlil Ihe union revises its contract demands.
