BRITISH BOND HOLDERS: London, June 23 – British Chancellor of the Exchequer Sir Edward Boyle, in a written reply to a Conservative member of parliament, said today that the British government entertains great hopes that the Greek government will soon put forward proposals that will be acceptable to the holders of bond loans granted to Greece. The British minister added that his government had informed Greece of its interest in the settlement of Greek foreign loans. CYPRIOT STRUGGLE: London, June 23 – Five young Greeks were convicted in Larnaca today to terms of imprisonment for their participation in incidents related to bomb explosions in the town on April 1. MUFTI: A British correspondent in Cyprus has interviewed both Archbishop Makarios and the Turkish Mufti Dena. The latter suggested that stricter measures be taken and that martial law be declared, since court rulings had so far been very lenient. «You should take drastic measures,» said the Mufti. «Do not restrict yourselves to observing principles that are implemented in Great Britain.»
