Agriculture Chief Occupation
Agricuihure is one of the principal
occupations but the Cyprus farmer
has no respect from the other classes.
He lives high in the mountains and
ekes out his existence on his small
plots of ground. Primitive methods of
agriculture are still used and Deme-
triades stated that there has been
little action to introduce modern
methods. He said that he was par-
ticularly astonished at the status of
the American farmer when he first
came to this country.
Education is under the control of
the British government and is sup-
ported by churches, mun,ipalities
and state taxes. In the six small
districts of the island, there is one
English school, two American schools,
one boys' and one girls' school. Co-
educational schools are forbidden

triades said that no more than three

their education beyond high school.
