END OF MAKARIOS’S EXILE: The steamship Olympic Thunder, carrying Archbishop Makarios, the ethnarch of Cyprus, back from exile in the Seychelles along with his co-exiled associates, arrived this evening in the port of Tamatave in Madagascar. Makarios will go ashore tomorrow morning and leave for the capital of Tananarive, the first stop on his journey to Athens. He is expected to fly to Athens from Nairobi. Tamatave’s small Greek community was out in force to welcome the archbishop with great fanfare, as well as Greeks from all over Madagascar. Makarios came ashore in a motorboat and greeted the crowd, declaring his joy at the warm welcome. The wireless operator on the Olympic Thunder sent a description of the scene in a brief message to Glyfada. GREECE-TURKEY: The newspaper Vatan reports from Ankara that «if the Cyprus issue is unilaterally resolved against Turkey’s wishes, then naturally all pending issues with Greece will be raised.» ROGER MILLIEX: On the occasion of the 200th birthday of the late Rigas Ferraios and the centenary since the death of the poet Dionysis Solomos, the Corinth branch of the French Institute is hosting a lecture to be given by the institute’s deputy director, Roger Milliex.
