ACROPOLIS BREAK-IN: The guard house next to the Propylaea on the Acropolis was broken into last night and the amounts of 305 dollars and 8,600 drachmas stolen. The money was from the previous day’s takings from ticket sales. GREECE-USA: New York – Economic circles here describe accusations against Greece from US Treasury Secretary Robert B. Anderson as unjustifiable and unreasonable. According to Anderson, large sums of money granted to Greece by a US loan and development organization were spent on purchasing machinery not from America but from West Germany and Italy. According to the same sources, it is regrettable that Anderson chose to attack Greece, which had been almost completely destroyed by fighting on the side of its allies, and yet had managed, after a two-year struggle, to receive nothing more than a loan for a nitrate factory, whereas at least 40 countries received billions to buy equipment for their factories from Germany, Italy and Japan. Not one of these countries bought supplies from the US because of the high cost. THEATER: Three theater companies are scheduled to open their winter seasons this evening.
