BREAD CURTAIN: Now that summer has arrived, the poor quality of bread is even more evident. It must be the worst bread anywhere in the world, with the exception of that found behind the Iron Curtain, for Greek bread is only comparable now to that baked in communist countries. Both throughout Europe, as well as in other Western countries, there is an abundance of bread of excellent quality, for both rich and poor alike. In this country, bread is a staple food item and is widely used as a substitute for milk, meat and butter. KOUN-DIAMANTOPOULOS: The Drama School of the Karolos Koun Art Theater has announced that it will be holding its customary drama school during the summer months. Acting methods and techniques will be taught both by Mr Koun and Mr V. Diamantopoulos. Classes are open to all those wishing to prepare for the school’s entrance examinations and for students of other schools as well as for those who simply require private lessons.
