December 9, 1959

EISENHOWER IN INDIA: New Delhi, 9 If Rome did not give him an enthusiastic welcome, nor Ankara, Karachi or Kabul, the Indian capital more than made up for it with crowds totaling 2 million people that lined the 12-mile route from the airport to greet US President Dwight D. Eisenhower. The sea of people astounded Ike, who waved back, smiling. KALOMIRIS AND PALAMAS: From a review by Minos Dounias: «Manolis Kalomiris’s militant faith in his mission is truly admirable. With the energy of a teenager, he promotes his work, monumental in range, visionary in concept and often of very high quality. The musically gifted Nana Goutou, accompanied by Despina Helmi on piano, presented Kalomiris’s ‘Cycle of Ten Songs’ from Costis Palamas’s collection of poems ‘Pentasyllables.’ As the composer said, Palamas’s verse is not amenable to music. Fortunately Kalomiris recites it in free form.» MAKRIYIANNI: At noon today, a memorial service is to be held for those officers and men who fell putting down the communist uprising of 1944. The service will be attended by relatives of the deceased, Prime Minister Constantine Karamanlis and King Pavlos, accompanied by Crown Prince Constantine.
