    LEADERS OF THE RULING GREEK UNION OF THE CENTRE PARTY WERE TODAY (THURSDAY) STRUGGLING TO HEAL THE SPLIT IN THEIR RANKS AFTER RENEWED DEMONSTRATIONS LAST NIGHT BY THOSE FOR AND AGAINST MR. PAPANDREOU, THE FORMER PRIME MINISTER.

    ONE OF THESE WAS A RALLY OF 3,000 GOVERNMENT SUPPORTERS WHO GATHERED IN ATHENS TO DENOUNCE MOB VIOLENCE AND THE CONTINUOUS DISTURBANCE OF THE PEACE. IT WAS SAID TO BE THE FIRST PRO-GOVERNMENT DEMONSTRATION TO BE HELD IN THE CITY SINCE THE POLITICAL CRISIS BEGAN.

    MR. APOSTOLAKOS, THE WELFARE MINISTER, EXPLAINED HIS GOVERNMENT'S POLICY TO THE RALLY AND EMPHASIZED THE "HARM" THAT WAS BEING DONE TO THE PAPANDREOU CAUSE BY THE RECENT VIOLENT DEMONSTRATIONS IN THE CAPITAL.

    KING CONSTANTINE, WHO YESTERDAY RETURNED UNEXPECTEDLY TO THE CAPITAL FROM HIS CORFU ISLAND SUMMER RESIDENCE, CONTINUED TALKS ON THE TWO-WEEK-OLD CRISIS LATE INTO THE NIGHT. HE THEN RETURNED TO CORFU WHERE HE IS EXPECTED TO STAY UNTIL SATURDAY.

    MEANWHILE, MEMBERS OF THE GREEK PARLIAMENT ARE PREPARING FOR AND EMERGENCY MEETING SUMMONED BY A SPECIAL DECREE SIGNED BY THE KING YESTERDAY. THE PARLIAMENT WILL BREAK ITS SUMMER RECESS TO DEBATE THE POLICY OF THE NEW PRIME MINISTER, MR. GEORGE ATHANASSIADES-NOVAS, WHO IS SEEKING A VOTE OF CONFIDENCE.
