Aluminum Producers Seek Alternate Ore Soviets Regard Cyprus As Key Part Of Middle East PITTSBURGH, Pa. (AP) -The Aluminum Company of America. faced with skyrocketing taxes and royalty aymenls in bauxite-rich Jamaica, is prepared to bite back at the hand that has long supplied it with the ore. F o r example, industrial wastes and waste from coal processing arc being, pursued Â»y the company as an alternative to bauxite. Bauxite is an impure mixture of early aluminum oxides and is the principal source of alu- mina, the ore for aluminum.. 'Alcoa and other U.S. aluminum producers have accelerated programs to develop commercial refining processes for a number of alternate ores," says C. W. Parry, Alcoa vice president for corporate planning. "There is no question that the United States could become self-sufficient in the production of alumina from a domestic ore," Parry said. "We arc far enough along to get some very strong in- didications that alumina produced from several of these sources would be competitive with alumina from Jamaican bauxite under the new tax con ditions . recently before committee, Parry, however, Parry testifiec a congressiona acknowledg An AP News Analysis ! Moscow's proposal for an 18- nation conference on Cyprus is a Soviet ploy to get a foot in the door. The Soviet statement 'cited the "special responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security" ol the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council. The Soviet Union, of course, is one of those, with the United States, China, France and Britain. The Soviet problem is that the United States is all too prominent in the search for a solution and there seems no room for the Russians. The problem involves two American allies, members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, Greece and Turkey, plus Britain as a guarantor with Greece and Turkey of the 1960 Cyprus treaty that made the island at least nominally independent. Soviet diplomacy seemb to re. gard Cyprus as an important part in a much bigger picture that "involves the whole Middle East. The Soviet press has been complaining that there would Russellville Theater Owner Plans Action RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. (AP)' -- John McNutt, the owner of Mini One Theater here, who was told that he would be prosecuted if the controversial movie "Deep Throat" was shown said Thursday night that he plans to take legal action.

Alex Streett and Pope County'SherifI Bill Abernathy told McNutt tha if the film was shown he woulc be prosecuted under the stale's obscenity statute. "Deep Throat" isn't rougher than other pictures shown in the Russellville area or pictures seen in magazine^ in newspaper racks," McNut said. Streett said law enforcemen officers may have been lax in allowing other m o v i e s to be shown that also were obscene. He said he couldn't enjoin thi showing of any movie.

Public Broadcasting System To Open New Season Oct. 6 By JAY SHARBUTT NEW YOKK (AP) -- The hree TV networks start' their 974-75 season Sept. 9 with 'Â·Â· a lamboyant exercise called premiere week," when they oil out their smash movies, icw scries and new episodes of elurning series.

When PBS' new season docs tart, you might not even real' ze it.- Unlike the networks' frantic, go-for-rich first week, the PBS eason tends to stagger in with- jut much urgency, with a hand- ul of brand-new shows on the opening week's bill and others arriving as late as April. But if Montgomery had his druthers, would he prefer to start the season with a solid block of new shows instead of nging their premieres "out ov=r a period of months? '"Well, I guess there's a lotto e said for establishing viewer ," Montgomery said. "I'd say yes, if it was a series that was worthy of that kind of continuity. "But when you consider that a great many of our programs have limited interest at best, such as 'Burglar-Proofing'" -a new six-part series on how to foil thieves -- "then you have to raise the 'question whether they warrant'that kind of continuity." In the new PBS national program cooperative, stations are for the first time helping pay for national shows they once received free. .Montgomery said they've helped pay for more than 60 per cent of this season's shows, putting $4 million "of station money into nationa programming we would not otherwise have." And, he said, "in the past xye used to build our schedule in three-month segments. This time, we can lay it out rather .completely for nine months."
