WANTED, DEAD OR ALIVE: The Government Gazette has published a decision (No. 34/5252/3a) by the interior minister, Mr Evangelos Kalantzis, «on the posting of bounty on robbers» in connection with the escape of 26 communist prisoners from the Vourla prison in Piraeus. (…) The sum of 30,000 drachmas is to be paid for the capture of Leonidas Philippos Tzefronis (…), dead or alive, and 15,000 drachmas for information leading to the recapture of Tzefronis and the other escapees. THE OLD NATIONAL THEATER: Paris – Parisian audiences continue to give standing ovations to the actors of the National Theater of Greece appearing at the Festival of Paris, this time for their performance of «Hecuba» (with Katina Paxinou and Alexis Minotis in the leading roles), which took place last night at the Sarah Bernhardt Theater. The audience stood clapping and cheering for 20 minutes after the end of the performance. (…) All Parisian critics have showered great praise on the National Theater of Greece, noting that their performances are the best of all those in this year’s Festival of Paris.
