GRIVAS FOR MAKARIOS: London, 22 – The leader of the National Cypriot Fighters’ Organization (EOKA), General Grivas, has circulated a proclamation in Cyprus emphasizing that the sole representative of the Cypriot people and its fighters is Archbishop Makarios, who is the only person who can negotiate a solution acceptable to the people and to EOKA. Grivas added that he himself has no personal ambitions and does not seek any praise, and that when the fighting is over he will lay down his arms. Meanwhile in New York, Makarios said that the appointment of Sir Hugh Foot as governor of Cyprus would mean a more liberal (British) administration. He declared himself to be in favor of a referendum under the auspices of the UN to decide the fate of Cyprus.
