GREECE-TURKEY: The results of the Greek-Turkish talks that ended last night in Athens were not entirely satisactory but no doubt favorable. MAY DAY: Labor Day was celebrated yesterday with a rally at 10.30 a.m. at the Kentrikon Theater (…). The general secretary of the General Confederation of Greek Labor (GSEE), Mr F. Makris, referred to the struggles of the workers against communism and the economic oligarchy (…). The main characteristic of the rally was its strong anti-communist flavor. Some attempts by communists, led by deputies of the United Democratic Left (EDA), to create disturbances and proclaim communist slogans were nipped in the bud by nationalist workers. Police saved the few troublemakers from being lynched by arresting 21 of them, who were later released after a protest from the Athens Labor Center. CLAUDEL: The premiere of «The Annunciation,» a play by Paul Claudel, is to take place tonight at 9 p.m. amid great fanfare. Translated by the poet, Mrs Myrtidiotissa, it is directed by Alexis Solomos, with Rita Myrat and Nikos Paraskevas in the leading roles. REACTIONS: Following the fall of Il Duce, all the bronze statues of him have been melted down and used to meld busts of Pope Pius and Palmiro Togliatti, the leader of the Italian Communist Party.
