MONDAY, AUGUST 31, 193C BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Faces Home-coming Wife o ; "Litllc Mollke" Bosses' Greece With M a r I i a 11 Ltw; Fights Radicals By MJI/1'ON BRONKEll NKA Servii'C, Stan" Corrvspirndfiil j LONDON.—Haired of republicanism, bottled up for > 5 yars. recently exploded in General Mstux- plump, short, middle-aged, b?- , -'ctaclcd Prcmler-dictiUov of j Greece, wllli the result that hh | country was put under martial law, j Piirlian'ient was sent about its business, and the liberal-sounding constitution was made into another of those famous European scraps if paper. MeUixas has been waiting for a ,'ery long time for Ills one glorious hour—the hour in which he was to avenge all the griffs and iinniliations he iind thc royalist cause had suffered for many troubled years. Now at last lie is on top and will stay there—until some other leader lures the Greek army away from him. That has been the sloiy of Greece In many of its recent civil wars and coups d'etat. lo Moltke By Fellow Students Metaxas, sprung from one of thc families of thc ruling caste, was educated mainly in German military schools. He was right nt the top in his class records, his German fellow students dubbing him 'Der klcine Moltke" -"the little Moltke," the latter being one of lho greatest soldiers Germany has produced in modern times. Metaxas, of course, returned to his own country and entered the army. Equally, of course, he brought back with him a life-long feeling of friendship for Germany and German things and German causes. In the Balkan wars of 1912 he then Crown Prince Constantino. They formed a closb friendship which lasted for life. When "Tino," as he was known to his intimate.-,, mounted the throne, in 1913, Mc- laxas was of the inner circle of the court. The World War of 1914 put Tino right square up against a situation in which he had to make a decision. The interests of Greece seemed to demand siding with the Allies. But Tino had married the sister of Kaiser Wllhclm. At his side were such pro-Germans as Metax- <is. Tino hoped for neutrality and that put him in square opposition to Vcnizelos, the great statesman who wns so marry times Premier of Greece.--:-.;—-•. — Vcnigflos' Influence Sowed Urcat Hatred From that time dated the hat- t«l of Metaxas for Venizelos and tfir all republicans. In the years -that followedf wrien King Constantine had to get out of Greece, Mc-taxas left with him. Wticn Tino came back, Metaxas came along Upon the death of Tino, Ihe stout general was just as loyal to his old master's son. King Gcor«e When the latter liad to leave Greece, Melaxas for a time left also, liul he got back in 1934, took a leading part in squelchim* the rebellion led by friends of Venizelos and played a large part in the return of King George to his throne and country. What -suppressing tile rebellion did for him wns much, but death did still more. In quick succession it removed General Condylis M. Venizelos and M. Tsaldaris'. This left Metaxas as the one strong man of the country. But lie was not entirely happy. He decreed an eelection for a new' Parliament. His own partv only won seven seats. It made "part of an nnti-Vcuizelist coalition which comprised 143 members in all. The friends of the late Venizslos, largely republican, won 142 seats. The Communist faction of 15, therefore could swing the ParJiament either' way. The Royalists hated the Vraiizelists too much to form a coalition with them. Tlic Vcnizel- ists could not and would not make a with the Reds. Deadlock, therefore, ensued until both big combinations, in utter weariness^ irecd that a Metaxas cabinet , ,'diilrt rule by decree for five F.nudths. Communist Activity Was Excuse for Coup In the meantime, MeUixas won dered how he could quash the Communists and maneuver mi election in which his side would hav a better chance to get a parlia mentary majority. Strikes in ill. tobacco factories of Salonika and threatened ones in Athens gave liary case, Mrs. George Kaufman's reunion on return to New Yoi took liis arm when they met.
