Britain Orders Makarios Freed In Attempt to Placate Cypriotes; Senators Broaden Labor Probe
LONDON, March 28--Britain today ordered the release from exile of Archbishop Makarios in the hope of breaking the deadlock in the dispute over Cyprus. Makarios, leader of the Greek Cypriot "union with Greece" movement, will not be permitted to return immediately to the strife-torn island, however.
Initial reaction among Greek Cypriots on the island was joyful. Church bells pealed and crowds gathered to talk excitedly about the news, flashed to the island by radio.
Probers to Broaden Search
WASHINGTON, March 28--The Senate's racket probers, getting tips on alleged misconduct from all over the country, announced today a broader-than-ever search for cases of labor-management corruption.
A preliminary investigation has been launched into alleged tie-ups between racketeers and some Teamsters Union officials in Oklahoma City.
Shippers Asked to Avoid Suez
WASHINGTON, March 28--The United States counseled American ships today to steer clear of the Suez Canal.
This advice, given by the State Department to a shipowners' committee, had the appearance of attempted pressure on Egypt's President Gamal Abdel Nasser.
It came as the United States and other Western users of the canal girded for long-range negotiations with Nasser on its future operation.
United Nations Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold is returning from talks with Nasser on this question.
