APPEAL TO CYPRIOTS: London, 31 – British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan has made an appeal to the Cypriot people in the press and on the radio, asking them to put an end to the recent wave of violence and bloodshed on the island. A similar appeal was launched yesterday evening by Greek Prime Minister Constantine Karamanlis. Turkish Prime Minister Adnan Menderes is expected to follow their example shortly. A British Foreign Office spokesman said today that Menderes had given an assurance to that effect to the British government. The British appeal was issued after a Cabinet meeting this morning. It will be broadcast on Cyprus radio and Cypriot newspapers will be asked to publish it. The appeal follows the wave of attacks in Cyprus in recent days.
