Scope & Content: The original release sheet reads: CYPRUS CRISIS: ALLIES SEEK TO END TURKISH-GREEK FEUD: The tinderbox that is Cyprus threatens to erupt into a full-scale war. Greek students demonstrate against British and United States proposals that a force of NATO troops help maintain a truce between Greeks and Turks. The Western powers are leery of a United Nations force that would give the Russians a voice. Bombings and murders are rife as the Island verges on international conflict. QUICK, FRED, THE FLIT: There are rumors around that this j.5 Britain's revenge for the Poston Tea Party. You guessed it . . . the Beatles have arrived in the United States for their first appearance before an idolizing teen-age crowd, with the St. Vitus bounce. They take an airing in Central Park. No. There is no truth to the buzz that the Zoo's laughing hyena was driven underground. MARDI GRAS USHERS IN TUNTEN SEASON: The traditional New Orleans Mardi Gras is BIGGER and BETTER than ever as parades continue thru day and night. Pretty girls and grotesque floats all add up to fun for one and all . . . SPORTS UPSETS MARK OLYMPIC GAMES Canada's four-man bobsled team thunders to an upset as they beat the favored Austrian quartet by a fraction over one second. In the men's Slalom - it's the turn of the United States to upset the Ski-pole. Billy Kidd takes second place and his teammate, Jimmy Heuga takes third as Josef Stiegler of Austria wins a Gold Medal for his team. It's the first win for the United States in men's Alpine skiing. There's another upset in the men's figure skating as Manfred Schnelldorfer of Germany pirouettes his way to the crown. He upsets Alain Calmat of France who has three spills and places second. Scott Allen just 14 years old wins a third-place Bronze Medal for United States and wins the hearts of the crowd also. He's a comer to watch.
