    MR. CYRIL PICKARD, THE ASSISTANT UNDER-SECRETARY OF STATE TEMPORARILY REPLACING SIR ARTHUR CLARK AS CHAIRMAN OF THE POLITICAL LIAISON COMMITTEE IN CYPRUS, YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) AFTERNOON PAID HIS FIRST VISITS TO TURKISH AND GREEK VILLAGES. THE TWO AREAS HE INSPECTED, TRAHONAS AND NEAPOLIS, WERE SCENES OF FIGHTING DURING THE RECENT DISTURBANCES BETWEEN THE GREEK AND TURKISH COMMUNITIES.

    AFTER DRIVING FOR SOME TIME, MR. PICKARD STOPPED HIS CAR AND SPOKE TO SEVERAL GREEKS, ASKING THEM ABOUT THEIR LIVING CONDITIONS. LATER, HE SAT IN A VILLAGE COFFEE-SHOP AND DRANK WITH ANOTHER GROUP ALSO ASKING THEM ABOUT DIFFICULTIES DURING THE PRESENT TENTATIVE TRUCE.

    ON WEDNESDAY, GREEK AND TURKISH REPRESENTATIVES WILL MEET BRITISH MINISTERS IN LONDON TO ATTEMPT TO FIND A SATISFACTORY WAY OUT OF THE PRESENT IMPASSE. TURKISH-CYPRIOT LEADERS DEMAND PARTITION AS THE ONLY SOLUTION TO THE CYPRUS SITUATION, WHILE GREEK CYPRIOTS ARE CERTAIN TO ASK FOR A GREATER SAY IN THE ISLAND'S FUTURE. IT IS GENERALLY FELT THAT THE CONFERENCE IS UNLIKELY TO PRODUCE ANY REAL FAR-REACHING SOLUTION.
