At a recent political rally in a converted movie theater, George Vassiliou, a businessman and candidate for president, appeared a bit uncomfortable on the dais, wedged between two stalwart members of the Cyprus Communist Party in rumpled gray suits. Vassiliou seemed elegant in a blue pinstripe and conservative tie. But he soon had the audience of party faithful jumping in the aisles, waving banners and shouting, "Cyprus is voting for Vassiliou."

It started as a controversial City Council proposal more than a year ago. Now it is a huge building in progress: a carpet-distribution warehouse that ultimately will cover 439,650 square feet at Valley View Street and Orangewood Avenue. Opponents charge it will "ruin" this 45,000-population city by increasing air, noise and traffic pollution. Supporters say it will not harm the environment and will bring the city $800,000 a year in tax revenue.

The City Council elected Cecilia L. Age as mayor Monday night by a 4-1 vote. Councilwoman Gail H. Kerry, who cast the dissenting vote, said Age's selection was a decision by the council's "majority of three" referring to Age and members Margaret M. Arnold and Councilman Walter Bowman. "I feel the choice is disappointing but to be expected, with a 2-to-3 block vote," Kerry said. Age, referring to rifts among council members, stressed unity during the coming year.
