A MASS RALLY IN NICOSIA TODAY WAS ATTENDED BY THOUSANDS OF GREEK CYPRIOTS WHO HEARD GRIVAS END HIS SPEECH WITH THE WORDS "LONG LIVE TOMORROW'S FREE GREEK CYPRUS". BUT EVEN AS THEY SANG THE GREEK NATIONAL ANTHEM, NEWS REACHED THE CAPITAL OF ANOTHER FIERCE INTER-RACIAL CLASH IN THE VILLAGE OF CHATOS IN EASTERN CYPRUS.
