Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Won., July 29, 1974 FAYETTEVILLE, ARKANSAS One Jail Escapee Remains At Large MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -One of 16 prisoners who escaped from the Shelby County Penal Farm remained at large late Sunday night and sheriff's officials said they were concentrating a search in a heavily wooded river bottom east of Memphis. -Sgt. Glen Parks of the sheriff's department said Ronald Maxwell. 17, who had been jailed on charges of rape and robbery with a deadly weapon, Guinea To Gain Independence LISBON, Portugal (AP) -President Antonio de Spinola said today that Guinea will be the first of Portugal's three Af- r ~ rican colonies to be granted independence. "After we're through with Guinea, we will turn our attentions to Mozambique and Arrgo- la," Spinola said in a brief television inlcview. The 64-year-old general had announced Saturday that Portugal was prepared to grant independence to its three African territories where Portuguese soldiers have been fighting independence movements for more than 13 years. No date tor granting independence has been set, but political observers here predict il will come soon. Spinola, who assumed the presidency after a coup toppled the rightist regime of Premier Marcello Caelanq Last April said that the decision to grani the colonies independence was made "because they now seem to be ready to take their own courses, and to choose their po litical and administrative fu ture." Spinola said he lias no doub ' that Portugal will retain iti friendly relations with the three territories once they become in dependent. "I can assure tha Portugal will always remain closely linked to the new Afri can nations," ne declared. vas being sought in the Wolf River bottom by state, county and city officers using guard dogs and helicopters Robert Cade. 25, was cap- ured without resistance earlier Sunday in the bottoms near In- erstate 40. Cade had been ailed on an armed robbery :harge. They were among 16 inmates vho overpowered guards and jscaped Saturday night from he Shelby County jail east annex of the penal farm near a iuburban residential area. Parks said another escapee captured Sunday afternoon in a ditch northeat of the city was Tommy Lee Shears, 25, who lad been charged with uttering orged papers. Shears had been denlified earlier as Ronnie 01- ie, a name Parks said may be an alias. Sheriff Roy Nixon said, "Obviously some planning went nto it (the escape), but how ar back we don't know." T h e penal f a r m , w h i c h sprawls over 5,000 wooded acres east of Memphis, houses city and county prisoners awaiting trial and convicted felons serving terms of five years or less. ' Nixon said security measures at the annex, which handles the 'overflow' prisoners from the county jail, were "as 'maximum we can make them in an older facility." He indicated additional security precautions were being tak en at the annex. The sheriff's department said the escapees opened the cells ol 167 inmates on the second floor of the annex but most remained behind in their quarters. Guard Earl Brooks said he was lured into a second floor cellblock by reports of a broken water pipe. Brooks said he was overpowered by prisoners- w h o pulled open a door he had opened to take a mop and buck et into the cellblock. Deputies said that during the escape, a group of prisoners commandeered a car, which later went out 'of control am wrecked. Stale Approves Rate Increases LITTLE ROCK (AP) - The tate Public Service Commis- ion announced today approval f a rale increase for certain ong-distance telephone calls in he Southwestern Bell Tele- ihone Co. system. Under the rate schedule, the ost of an operator-assisted call yould increase, while the cost a station-to-station call iialed by the customer would ic about the same. Bell said the increase !s justl ied because of the added labor ost for an operator-assisted all. The person-to-person rate also is higher. The commission aid that type of call requires lie greatest amount of operator ime. The commission also said about 42 per cent of person-to- person calls are not completed and, therefore, do not bring in any revenue. There has been no opposition o the rate increase. The rate schedule will take effect Thursday. Here are some examples supplied by Bell of how the new rate schedule will affect the customer: A direct-dial call from Little Rock to Benton or Conway vould still cost 30 cents regard- ess of the time of the call. An operator - assisted c a l l would increase from 30 to 40 cents. A person-to-person call would ;o from 50 to 70 cents. Testimony during the public learing on the proposal this uonth showed that 43 states lave approved similar rate schedules and that these long- distance rates still will be lower than those in the states ad- ioining Arkansas.

American Military Officers Give Turkey Bad Grades Time To Coo! Off What does Gabby, a chimp at Marine World-Africa USA located near San Francisco, do when the .temperature climbs Into the high 90s? Sim* pie.; He splashes in the wa- ter, trying to get some of the liquid down his- parched throat. (AP Wirephoto) WASHINGTON (AP) -- In the wake of near-war over Cyprus, U.S. military analysts wonder whether Turkish and Greek forces will be able to co-operate effectively in the future as the southern anchor of the NATO alliance. Taking a hopeful tack, they suggest the ouster of the Greek military junta blamed for fomenting the Cyprus coup may lead to a more stable situation, assuming the completion of successful negotiations between the new Greek government and the Turks. But these analysts acknowledge the Turks landing on Cyprus and other strains growing out of the crisis have inflamed a centuries-old Greek- Turkish enmity. Some pessimists say the threat of war between Turkey and Greece, along with what they describe as a clumsy performance by Turkish forces on Cyprus, laid bare the weakness of NATO's southern flank. ,"Jf I was the Russian commander, I'd cut my forces facing that flank by about 50 per cent," said the U.S. general. Some optimists say they believe the Greeks and Turks would pull together and fighl well if they were defending their own home soil against i Communist attack. OPERATION DISAPPOINTING The Turkish operation on Cyprus was rated disappointing b y many U.S. military professionals, after more t h a n ;wq decades of American .raining and advice and abou' $3 billion in American arm: designed to build Turkey's forces into a strong bulwark against any Soviet threat in hat quarter. The Turks didn't Ao as well s one might have expected," aid a senior.staff officer. "They may have underestl- nated their problems, e v e n against the Cypriot national uard. -"Their planning, launching and landing were reasonably veil done. But after they got ashore, they didn't move quite as vigorously as they , should have. Perhaps they needed bigger forces to achieve their military objectives quickly." American officers criticized he Turks for failing to take he port at, Kyrenia early in he the invasion. As a result, hey said, the Turks", were: able o get ashore too few tanks and armored personnel carriers. Another failure of the Turk jperation, U.S. officers said, was in their inability to capture he key airport at Nicosia. This, oo, was attributed to lack of peed and aggressiveness. Some U.S. officers found fault vith Turkish failure to resupply their fighting units speedily. The sinking of a Turkish favy destroyer by Turkish Air Torce planes caused perhaps he most pained headshaking among U.S. Air Force officers. "I guess we taught them to 3omb well enough, but they are obviously not very good at identifying their own ships," said one Air Force general. Gandhi.
