SEFERIS: The Greek service of London radio has announced that after the 9.30 evening news today (April 29) the poet George Seferis will deliver a lecture on «The First Greek Traveler to Britain.» HOURMOUZIOS ON MELAS: «Spyros Melas yesterday complained in his column that Kathimerini had misinterpreted his words. Mr Melas rejects any relationship between his style of theater and the French revue. He refers to his works ‘Papaflessas’ and ‘Judas’. (…) At heart, Melas’s works are of course satire, but are they any the less Greek revue?» Respectfully yours, Aimilios Hourmouzios. UNIVERSITY: The Athens University union of students issued a warning stating that the student body will not in any way tolerate any unpatriotic activities on the part of professors at what is above all an educational foundation, and will make a strong response to any such acts. FRIEND AND ALLY: A ministerial circular has put forth a proposal suggesting that from now on, all teachers of history, geography and Modern Greek should be careful to avoid any comments or suggestions that are likely to stir up unpleasant intentions in the hearts of pupils and feelings that may be seen as hostile to the people of Greece’s friend and ally, Turkey.
