VANDALISM ON CYPRUS: Nicosia, 13 – Fearing chaos due to the organized resistance by Greek Cypriots to Turkish atrocities, including the vandalism of property, the British authorities here have decided to intervene in order to contain (Turkish-Cypriot leader Fazil) Kucuk’s hordes. Measures have been taken to suppress the fury of the Turkish mobs. As a result, there were no serious incidents today, apart from shouted protests to police by Greeks who were burying their dead. The victims of yesterday’s atrocities by Turks in Cyprus totaled six dead and many injured. The total number of victims since last Saturday stands at 11 dead and over 100 injured. Two Turkish Cypriots were killed. One of the Greeks injured in yesterday’s incident near the Turkish village of Goneli died today. PALACE EVENTS: Her Royal Highness Princess Sofia attended the opening of the Greek Girl Guides’ Kallithea Home for the Blind the day before yesterday. His Majesty the King received General Pausanias Katsotas, Mayor of Athens Spyridon Kosmetatos, the director of the press office of the Greek Embassy in Paris as well as the Greek ambassador in Addis Ababa, T. Ypsilantis. Her Majesty the Queen received Archimandrite I. Apostolidis.
