    Background: THE COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF OF THE CYPRUS NATIONAL GUARD, GENERAL GEORGE GRIVAS, IN ATHENS FOR TALKS ON CYPRUS DEFENCE WITH GREEK MINISTERS, WAS TODAY (SATURDAY) RECEIVED BY KING CONSTANTINE. GENERAL GRIVAS IS EXPECTED TO RETURN TO NICOSIA TOMORROW (SUNDAY).

    MEANWHILE IN CYPRUS ITSELF, UNITS OF THE NATIONAL GUARD ARE UNDERGOING TRAINING IN THE USE OF HEAVY WEAPONS AND THE DEPLOYMENT OF THE 'ARMOURED CARS' WHICH FIRST MADE THEIR APPEARANCE DURING THE INDEPENDENCE DAY PARADE IN NICOSIA EARLIER THIS YEAR.

    BESIDES FIRING PRACTICE WITH THE HEAVY MACHINE GUNS, THE MEN ARE TAUGHT HOW TO SERVICE AND DISMANTLE THEM -- AN EXERCISE WHICH EVENTUALLY THEY PERFORM BLINDFOLD. THE ARMOURED CARS LOOK RATHER PRIMITIVE WHEN JUDGED AGAINST LATEST NATO WEAPONS, BUT THEY'RE NONE THE LESS EFFECTIVE FOR ALL THAT.
