IN AID OF ORPHANS: New York, 16 – On Saturday (February 14, 1953), the annual recital of the New York Philharmonic was held in the presence of the Greek ambassador, Mr Politis, in aid of the orphans supported by Queen Frederika. A committee headed by Mrs Spyros Skouras organized this year’s recital by the great orchestra, which was conducted by the British maestro Mr Sherman. Soloists were Mr Moschonas, baritone, and Mrs Hess, pianist, replacing Mrs Bachauer, who was slightly indisposed. Mrs Bachauer is the wife of Mr Sherman. The concert was warmly applauded though it was noted that Carnegie Hall did not attract as large an audience as usual. EMIGRATION: Over 100 Greeks have emigrated for Brazil on the ocean-going ship Nea Hellas. They will change ships in Naples, where they will embark on the steamship Castelfelice, which will transport 100 passengers to Rio de Janeiro and the remainder to Sao Paolo, where they intend to settle. (…) Most of the travelers are skilled workers, such as builders, railway workers, carpenters, cabinet makers, electricians, and plumbers. COIFFURES: The hair stylist Andre, who is widely considered to be the latest word in fashion, has recently arrived from abroad. His prices include a haircut at 15,000 drachmas, and a mis-en-plis at 20,000 drachmas. He will be located at 17 Academias Street.
