(Bigrow photos) 4 World Roundup Tape return blocked WASHINGTON (UPI) — President Ford and Special Prosecutor Leon Jawarski Thursday blocked a move to turn over the Nixon White House tapes to former President Nixon. Jaworski's office said the White House will hold the tapes and documents until the issue is reviewed. On Wednesday, two lawyers who had worked for Nixon said the Justice Department had endorsed the opinion that the documents were Nixon's pro- perty. That announcement, channeled through the WHite House press office, was erroneous. U.S. aid given cold shoulder WASHINGTON (UPI) — Neither Greece, Turkey nor Cyprus appears to be jumping at a United States offer of diplomatic help in solving their conflict. Korean assailant identified SEOUL (UPI) — South Korean officials today identified the assailant of President Park Chung-hee as Moon Sae-kwang, 23, a dedicated Communist since his youth. Park's wife and a 17- year-old girl were killed in the assassination attempt Thursday, but the President was not hurt. Better trade withU.S.S.R. WASHINGTON (UPI) — President Ford Thursday moved closer to achieving one foreign policy success that eluded for- mer President Nixon —better trade relations with the Soviet Union and settlement of the Jewish emigration question. It would come through a compromise with members of Congress, led by Sen. Henry M. Jackson, D-Wash., who insisted that the Russians change their emigration policy toward Jews before Congress would grant the most-favored-nation status necessary for improving trade. Ford vetoes animal research WASHINGTON (UPI) - President Ford Thursday voted a $47 million animal research program, the second bill he has vetoed on grounds he wants to slow inflation. The banking committees of both the House and Senate approved Ford's request for a new Cost of Living Council.

Turks report completion of drive to split Cyprus The Turkish General Staff Command announced Uxjay its armored columns with air and naval support had smashed through Greek Cypriot lines and reached the west coast of Cyprus, thus to a delirious welcome by the Turkish Cypriote there. Then the Turkish General staff announced completion of the Turkish drive with the capture of the village of Gaziviran in the west. Gaziviran, just completing the drive to s\i€e inland from Morphou Bay, is off the upper third of the island. It said the Turkish offensive would end at noon EDT. ^\The threat of war between Turkey and Greece lessened today with assurances by Greek Premier Constantine Karamanlis that Greece would not invade Cyprus and official Turkish statements that Turkey would heed the fourth United Nations call for a cease-fire. Turkish Defense Minister Hasan Esat Isik said the triumphant Turks would halt their offensive \in a matter of hours.\ Then Premier Bulent Ecevit told newsmen in Istan- bul that the Turkish military operation will end at 7 p.m. (noon EDT.) He made the announcement after a cabinet meeting. Thousands of Greek Cypriots streamed southward from the area of Turkish conquest—the northern third ^--Cyprus along what the Turks call the \Attila Line\ stretching from The smoking port city of Famagusta on the east coast to the Lefka area in the west. The capital of Nicosia was deserted by all but the last remnants of tbe outnumbered Cfreek Cymjot defenders. The Turkish Tories, covered, by tremendous air and artillery barrages, were advancing to- ward the airport four miles west of Nicosia. Canadian U.N. forces there were in danger of being cut off in what could bring a new con- frontation between Turkey and the world body. The Turkish hordes had swept into Famagusta earlier five miles from the big Turkish Cypriot center of Lefka, main target of the Turkish drive, and just outside the. town of Morphou. The victory communique is- sued at 2:30 P.M. (7:30 a.m. EDT) said: \Turkish armed forces covered by our nava! and air forces reached Cyprus' western coast today capturing Omorphu and the villages of Gaziviran. The operation continues suc- cessfully. World diplomacy had failed to stop the Turkish offensive which it said it began because it could not win its objectives at the Geneva peace talks- two separate and autonomous Greek and Turkish Cyprus communities united in a federation. Greece had bit- terly opposed this. The crisis was triggered on July 15 when the Greek Cypriot national guard led by Greek officers overthrew President Archbishop Makarios in a coup Turkey feared would led to enosis, union of Cyprus with Greek. It was a move that backfired. Greece's military junta 'fell and on July 20 Turkey invaded Cyprus. Today the tank-led Turkish infantry swarmed into the eastern port of Famagusta barely without a fight today, securing the northeastern third of Cyprus. Turkish planes bombed parts of Nicosia and heavy fighting erupted in the center of the city along the \Green Line\ which separates the two told Greek Cyprus it its willing to intercede \more actively*' in efforts to achieve peace. The offer was ignored. Greece pulled out of NATO and has threatened to expel the 3,000 American servicemen stationed in Greece. Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger sent urgent messages of diplomatic help to both Karamanlis and Greek Cypriot acting president Glafkot derides. But both were ignored on grounds the offer came too late. Turkish troops directed mortar and machine fun fire in the vicinity of Nicosia In- ternational Airport tod began an encircling movement that could cut off the Cinadtan U.N. contingent bokiiog it. Rep. McEwen testifies for horse transportation WASHINGTON - Citing \miserable conditions\ under which horses are transported from the Southern United States to Canada where they they are slaughtered for human consumption in Europe, Congressman Robert C McEwen, R.N.Y., has testified before a House Agriculture Subcommittee in support of legislation which he has introduced regulating their transportation, care and handling.

Also offering testimony in behalf of the legislation were represen- tatives of the American Horse Protection Association, Humane Society of the United States and the Committee on Humane Legislation. The Congressman told the Subcommittee in testimony Wednesday (August 14) that one of tbe main routes for the shipment* runs through his Northe/n New York Congressional District — along the Adirondack Nor- thway, Interstate Route 87. He said residents of the area and many national organizations are \outraged at the miserable condition of these horses by the time the trucks reach upstate New York,\ he said. \Many animals are sick and some dead because of the over- crowded conditions and lack of food and water/* The Congressman called \deficient standards of care in transporting animals, the rule and not the exception in America today.\ The Congressman said he honed the Subcommittee would met favorably upoo the bill and send it & the full House of Representatives for consideration.
