OPINION

January 25, 1953

EPEK AND KKE: Two committees of the EPEK party have made the following announcement: «The Communist Party (KKE) has decided to return to its old tactics and has asked the EPEK party and generally the progressive center to align itself with it in a ‘united democratic front’ for the purpose of ‘averting risks threatening the country.’ The KKE’s goals are obvious. Profiting from the current situation, it wants to recreate conditions for deceiving the people and creating a new EAM (National Liberation Front). EPEK’s committees declare that these proposals by the KKE are unacceptable and contrary to the interests of the Greek people…» MANOS HADJIDAKIS: Tomorrow evening, there will be a concert of works by modern American and Greek composers in the hall of the American Information Service. The following works will be performed: Giancarlo Menotti’s Concerto for piano and orchestra, Manos Hadjidakis’s «Three songs for piano and orchestra» and two laments from «The Libation Bearers,» which will be sung by G. Moutsios. GRIGORIS M. GRIGORIOU: Tomorrow at Athens and Thessaloniki cinemas, the Greek cinema industry proudly presents the best film of the year directed by Grigoris Grigoriou, «Wide Roads,» starring Dinos Dimopoulos, Liana Liapi and Yiannis Argyris, by Pergantis Productions. The film relates the hardships of life in the big cities.
