CYPRIOT STRUGGLE: Nicosia, 23 – Despite the harsh terrorist methods employed by the British, the initiative in Cyprus is firmly in the hands of the patriots. This morning, close to the village of Amiantos, a group of Cypriots ambushed a passing company of British commandos, who found themselves under fire from the rebels. A battle ensued during which two of the commandos were injured, one of them seriously. Finally, the British soldiers managed to break through the firing line and escape. MARGARITA PERRA: (From a music review by Minos Dounias): Many thoughts come to mind following last night’s appearance by the singer Margarita Perra. I will restrict myself to just a few and I can only begin by expressing the general annoyance of all those who attended the unforgettable evening of song in the absence of the public. (…) Margarita Perra is a wonderful young singer, among the greatest singers of our time. I find it hard to imagine a more superior voice, greater quality or a more passionate involvement in the deeper meaning of the music.
