GRAMMOS ANNIVERSARY: In a speech marking the 10th anniversary of the end of the Greek war against communist «outlaws,» Prime Minister Constantine Karamanlis said that Greece was not only fighting communism to protect the economic and social system in which it believes but also to defend the principles of individual freedom and democracy, which are inextricably linked with its cultural tradition. For Greece, the struggle against communism is a struggle to preserve its ethnic identity, the continuation of all those struggles the nation has waged to keep free the territory in which it has its roots and whose culture has been a beacon. That is the deeper meaning of the struggle, which the entire nation is commemorating. EISENHOWER-ADENAUER: London – Following talks in Bonn between American President Dwight D.
