Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Thurs., Aug. 29, 1974 FAYITTIVILLt. ARKANSAS Cypriot Life Far From. Normal By HUGH A. MULLIGAN PAPHOS, Cyprus (AP) -- In the Turkish quarter of this coastal town, the men in the coffee shop Inlk of fleeing north to the Turkish lines 50 miles away. "If we were permitted to go, we would not hesitate to go immediately to be in safety under the Turkish forces," said the high school music teacher. He didn't want to give his name for fear "of being taken off to prison like the 29 Turkish policemen from this quarter." The English teacher said they handed in their guns to United Nations troops after surrendering because they ran out of ammunition. But he said thai when peace negotiations broke down, they were at the mercy of the Greek Cypriot soldiers, most of them irregulars. He said that Hie Greeks smashed in their doors and shop windows wilh rifle butts and fired machine guns through the quarter, killing seven persons. One was a 3-ycar-old child who died with more than 30 bullet wounds, he claimed. The people of the quarter -others joined in the slory -were taken to the soccer field for questioning, while "looters went through our houses taking what they could carry off. Radios, television sets, money, jewelry and gold." JUST HOSTAGES NOW "Now, we are hostage." said a baby-faced municipal clerk wilh no office to go to. "Everyone is frightened of what will happen, They keep asking when the Greeks will kill us. Why are they wailing?" Paphos, 33 miles from Nicosia on the dry southwest side of Cyprus, has 10,000 Greeks and 3,000 Turks living apart in mutual suspicion. Since the Turkish invasion of northern Cyprus, the city has been shelled by a Greek gunboat, bombed by Turkish planes and hit by mortar and artillery fire. Since the fighting ended almost two weeks ago, most ot the people living in the narrow streets ,of the Turkish quarter have moved away from the Green Line separating the two communities and clustered protectively around their mosqut, where a Greek soldier sits outside. The mosque Is closed. The men in the coffee shop say the looted all the religious objects and Ihe priest has not been allowed to return from his village. Unlike many villages, there is electricity and water and the four wholesale grocers are permitted to bring food to the market. Food is plentiful at the moment, scarce work. Engaged Couple Testifies That Love Is Blind SAN KAFAEL, Calif. (AP) -A romance that sprouted at a| Guide Dogs for the Blind training school will blossom with the marriage of a young - couple who confess happily that their "love is blind." Cbristell Chistopher. 18. and Rick Ehrler. 26, both blind, met June 23 at the training school. "I can't believe all this h a s happened," said Ehrler, elated by his planned wedding on Sept. 21. "I just went down to the Civic Center to get our marriage license, and wow!" Ford (CONTINUED FROM PAGE FOUIl) Chairman Wright Patman said he didn't share "Ford's confidence that voluntary wage and price guidelines would tame inflation, but was willing to give it a try. On other issues, F o r d said: -- Administration e c o n o m i c advisers have suggested that If the economy worsens the government ought to provide more public service jobs. "We will approach t h i s problem with compassion and action where there is a need for it," Ford said. --His nomination of Nelson A. Rockefeller to be vice president and his statement on amnesty for Vietnam war rcsislers are not "views that fall in the political spectrum right or left. 1 ' Ford said, "I don't think I have deviated from my basic philosophy nor have I deviated from what 1 think is the right action." --"I will probably be a candidate in 1976." The President called himself and Rockefeller a good team, "but of course the final judgment in this matter will be that of the delegates to the national convention." --Rockefeller will take over Ford's responsibility of heading the subcommittee of the Do mestic Council on privacy and will make a significant contri bution to foreign policy formu lation. --A new attitude from Cuba toward the United States anc Its Latin neighbors could leaf to U.S. re-evaluation of its pol icy. "But before we made anj change, we \yould certainly ac In concert with the other mem bcrs of the Organization American States," Ford said. --It is necessary to acceler ate Project Independence, thi plan originated by.

Sightlessness has been an inconvenience to the pair, but Khrlcr says it may have been niore of a blessing than a handicap. "Sometimes I think the guy who made up 'love is blind' is rfglit," Ehrler said, "because you tend not lo look at things objectively when you're in love."

"I don't think any "of us ants to see Tyger go back to ill," said Tyger's lawyer, John bond Sr., after an extradition earing here Wednesday. "If we send him back, the nly reason would be to get engence," Aboud said. Tyger was serving a three- ear.^ burglary sentence when e fled Ihe Cummins unit of Ihe rkansas State Penitentiary in 968. He was sent to the prison n 1967 afler breaking into a tore and taking $200 worth of lolhing. Arkansas officials have de- ied requests for parole or cle- nency and say Tyger faces anther seven years in prison for is escape. Aboud said to return Tyger to risen would be an injustice.

Despite that, the President aid Jaworski "has an obliga- lon to take whatever action he ces fit ... and that should in- lude any and all individuals." But Ford made it clear that e, as President, would make e final judgment in the case. "I am the final authority," he aid. Asked if he would consider a jardon for Nixon if legal action vere taken against the former resident, Ford replied: "Of' course,.I-.inake the final decision. Until it gels to me, I nake no commitment one way the other. But I do have the ight as President of Ihe United States to make that decision." The matter of Nixon's status as a potential defendant in the Valergate case was the open- ng question in Ford's first news conference as President. Ford clearly expected it. He tad in hand for quotation his statement when he took office Aug. 9 that he hoped "our former president, who brought jeace to millions, will find it 'or himself." Rather than saying directly :hat he thought Nixon should be spared from prosecution, Ford chose to state his agreement with others who already had expressed that view, which he described as "the general view and the point of view of the American people."
