COURIER NEWS TUESDAY, MARCH 18, MM Cyprus Is Britain's Last Stronghold in Mid-East By JAMES MARLOW Astooiated Press Newi Ana!y«< WASHINGTON (AP) — This is an ABC on the British colony of Cyprus, where violence and demands for union with Greece are straining relations between three Western allies: Britain, Greece, Turkey. This island, at the eastern end of the Mediterranean, is Britain's last stronghold in the Middle East, a base for air and ground troops. She has had to withdraw from all other strategic posts in the area. Of Cyprus' 500,000 people, 400,-*— • • 000 are of Greek descent, 100,000 Turkish.

Cypriots have grown increasingly bitter and violent. A terrorisi oganization, called the National Oganization of Cypriot Fighters, is charged with the killing of the 15 British soldiers The British have made arrests and house-to-house searches. They have offered rewards of as much as $14,000 for information leading to the arrest of terrorists or the discovery of arms. A week ago the British made their offer—some self-government for the Cypriots while Britain controlled defense and foreign affairs •—to Archbishop Makarios, the toughest foe they had on Cyprus. He held out for other concessions and refused to call off the violence. For example, he wanted pardons for political prisoners. Last Friday he announced he was going to Greece to talk to the government there. The British seized him and several others as he was hoarding a plane and said they were exiling him. They shipped him and his companions off to the Seychelles Islands in the Indian Ocean. This brought more violence in By BENEE J. CAPPON MANHATTAN, Kan.

Brayfield is chairman o: Kansas State's psychokiy department. Attitude Surrey Ther conclusion emeved from survey of attitude studies in business and industry. Brayfield noted that employe attitude surveys began to reach their vogue as a personnel tool in the early days of World War II. "Unfortunately," he commentec "they don't prove anything at al with respect to employe performance." In their analysis of the field, Brayfield and Crockett cite numerous instances exemplified by this study conducted by Brayfield himself: Agreed A job satisfaction survey was conducted among 231 women office em- ployes in the same firm. The findings were matched against the women's production records. The index of job satisfaction agreed with the index of high productivity in only 5 per cent. "If you do an attitude survey in U. A.

"I. don't mean to advocate that management should neglect to keep its employes contented. But it shouldn't conclude that high production is the necessary result of favorable results in an attitude survey." A more fruitful approach for research, he suggested, would be to investigate what "gets people produce—without being sidetrack by this intervening, and not ve significant, angle of job satisfac tion."

Upon his return, Picard found an 18-inch shot pattern in the wall back of his bench. He whammed his gavel and got on with the case at bar, commenting that the courtroom is scheduled to be redecorated soon, anyway.

That is the year, incidentally, in which Picard outlawed, in'effect, so-called portal-to-portal pay in factories. If convicted of the charge, Wloch could be fined $10,000 and sentenced to 10 years in prison. Picard went up to FBI Bay City headquarters to ask why Wloch had taken his pot-shot.
