Mr. Dermand left his native Greece when a youth of 18 and this was his first visit back there in the past 54 years. With another , retired restaurant owner, William Chris- cos from Rockwell City, Alex sailed to Greece on the Queen Anna Maria. In Athens he stayed in .what he described as a "very clean air-conditioned hotel" where he met many visiting Americans and American-Greeks. He noted that Athens was one of the busiest cities he had ever seen. Seeing the mass of buses and taxis he remarked, "It was just like State and Madison in Chicago." During his four weeks in Athens, his telephone was ringing constantly, with cousins calling to talk with him. He said he spoke to cousins he didn't even know he had! He also visited a brother and a sister who lived in the Grecian capitol.

The stores .closed for the siesta, and lunch was served at 1:30. The main meal of the day was the served between 9:30 and 10 p.m. From Athens, Alex went by train to visit the small village where he was born in southwestern Greece. There, he saw a brother and old friends whom he had known before he left ' Greece at the age of It. He ; recalled several boyhood companions walking up to him 1 and saying, "Alex, do you know me?" He said he could still recognize a few of them. <; _ Besides visiting relatives and friends'and touring'the countryside for three weeks, Alex found time to enjoy several of the Greek national museums. He was surprised to see a -covered wagon which had been used in early Greece. In the Acropolis museum photographs of many statues were not allowed. DURING his stay in Greece, Alex learned much about the new dictatorship in Greece and why the old government had been overthrown. According to Mr. Dermand and the people he spoke to, the dictatorship was a "Godsend for the Greek and the American peoples." They told him that the former politicians as well as the police were becoming so corrupt that something had to be done. The laws were not being enforced, and the crime rate was spiraling upward, and com IMMIHMIMNMIIMIIMMIIIIIMIIMIIIIMIIIMIIIIMMIMMIIMIIIIIIMMMIIMItMIMIIIIMIMM Admit 4 osteopaths to St. Ann hospital The medical staff of St. Ann hospital voted unanimously to approve the applications of four area osteopathic physicians to admit and treat patients in the hospital, at a meeting held Monday night, Sept. 18.

' tions by various It was at this time that the present group of military men made their bid for power. In three to four hours they seiied control in every part ef Greece without killing • single person. Their new slogan was "First Be A Greek." The Greek people, of course, did not favor having any dictator in power, but they realized that there was no other way. Things had been getting out of hand. There were strikes and brawls in the streets almost daily. Most Greeks felt that it all would not have happened had the politicians been honest. SO NOW THE Greek people are without a vote, but they are thankful that the new military dictatorship keeps law and order in the country without taking advantage of the people. Most of the Greeks Alex spoke to felt that the dictatorship had saved Greece from chaos and Communism. Although the country had had democracy before the takeover, Alex noted, "Democracy is not just a vote; it is glso justice and order in a country." So, after a month in Athens and three weeks in the countryside, Alex Permand flew home to Algona Hast week with a new image of the Greece which he had left behind M many years before. Mr. and Mrs. Permand have been Algona residents for many years. They nave companies, and more than 50% of the General Prospects cards are still to be reported. Ted Chrischilles and Paul Seeley, co-chairmen of the Algona General Prospects Organization; Clarence K. Bormann and Frank Reding, cochairmen of the South County Organization; and Joseph H. Besch, chairman of the Whittemore organization, have joined in an appeal to all volunteer workers to complete their calls and report them to their chairmen as soon as possible. It is hoped that all calls will be completed by Friday, Sept, 22.
