CYPRIOT STRUGGLE: Nicosia, 17 – The British authorities’ oppressive and restrictive measures taken against the Cypriot people and the Greek education system on the island has done nothing to lower morale, as the British had hoped, but has only strengthened the Cypriot people’s resolve. Meanwhile, demonstrations by Cypriot schoolchildren against measures taken by the British against Greek schools continued, as did clashes with British soldiers and police. Children from schools in Paphos went on strike today in protest against the failure of an appeal against the death sentence on Michail Karaolis… This evening three bombs exploded in Nicosia, injuring four British soldiers. Another bomb exploded in the Limassol home of a British colonel, although no one was injured. APES OF ATHENS: (From a letter to Kathimerini by I.M. Zikopoulos) – «Regarding the publication of a letter from Athens Police Headquarters on wandering apes, I have the honor to inform you that last Sunday (November 13) at 5 p.m. at the Edem restaurant in Palaio Faliron, a Gypsy child was walking about, begging with a monkey. This awful scene took place in one of Athens’s most picturesque tourist spots.
