August 12, 1959

HOLIDAYS ON MYCONOS: A lot of people have arrived on the Aegean island of Myconos, some staying at the lovely Leto Hotel as well as in island homes and the beach cabanas at Aghios Stefanos, not to mention those stopping by in yachts. VOULIAGMENI: The new beach complex in the southern coastal suburb of Vouliagmeni, which opened on August 1, had 4,812 visitors on its first day. The beach bar’s takings in the first three days was 14,000 drachmas. EXILES: The undersecretariat for security has announced that «the hardcore communist nucleus of the United Democratic Left [EDA] has undertaken a propaganda campaign in its own newspaper and in others with similar beliefs with the aim of criticizing the conditional leave being given to communists exiled on the island of Aghios Efstratios in the northern Aegean and presenting this move as a ‘terrible inquisition, creating a country full of exiles that is worse than a prison.’ The truth is quite the opposite. The exiles are dedicated and fanatical communist cadres who are a real threat to the country’s security and are working for the illegal Communist Party of Greece.»
