GREAT BRITAIN: London, 10 – Political sources here have observed the serious blow suffered by the government of Sir Anthony Eden as a result of its unfortunate handling of the Suez war. A crisis has arisen within the Conservative Party chiefly over the resignation of two Cabinet members, Anthony Nutting and Edward Boyle. It is considered doubtful here whether Eden will manage to remain in power, particularly following the unprecedented refusal of the White House to receive the prime ministers of France and Britain. GREECE-USSR: Moscow, 10 – The Greek Embassy here has announced that Russia has made no official request that Russian aircraft be given permission to fly through Greek air space to the Middle East. The announcement was made in response to questions as to whether Russia would ask for the views of the Greek government on this issue. ART THEATER: The final performances of «A Rose on the Breast» are being held at Karolos Koun’s Art Theater. On Wednesday and Thursday the theater will be closed to complete preparations for Friday’s performance of William Inge’s «Bus Stop.»
