Kissinger has told Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko that he is ready to play an active part in, resolving he Cyprus crisis.

(AP) --- Charley McFarland spent his 25th birthday at the Camp Atterbury Amnesty Center today, with a chance of completing the process for an undesirable discharge before the day ended. He and 228 other former soldiers, sailors and Marines were moving through the clemency procedures much faster than the military staff had expected. When the center re-opened on Monday, the staff thought it would take four days to process each deserter, starting with an orientation session and ending with an undesirable discharge from the military. But Maj. J. Thomas Kallunki, Army public information offi cer, "said on Tuesday the proc ess was working out to aboul two days -- largely because the staff was working far into the Ordnance at night. Maj. Larry- D. Scott, Army chaplain who has talked to more than half the men at the center, said most of them deserted because of persona problems and not political be liefs.
