    TWO SOVIET COSMONAUTS WHO MADE A HISTORY-MAKING SPACE FLIGHT LAST MARCH FLEW INTO ATHENS YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) FOR THE 16TH INTERNATIONAL ASTRONAUTICAL CONGRESS. SPACE-WALKER LIEUTENANT-COLONEL ALEXEI LEONOV AND COLONEL PAVEL BELYAEV ENJOYED AN EXCITED WELCOME AS THEY LEFT THEIR AIRCRAFT.

    MANY OF THE WORLD'S LEADING SPACE SCIENTISTS WILL GATHER AT ROMAN THEATRE OF HERODUS ATTICUS AT THE FOOT OF THE ACROPOLIS ON MONDAY FOR THE OPENING CEREMONY OF THE CONGRESS. IT WILL START WITH AN ADDRESS BY KING CONSTANTINE.

    MORE THAN 1,000 SCIENTISTS DIRECTLY CONNECTED WITH SPACE PROGRAMMES IN 42 COUNTRIES ARE EXPECTED TO TAKE PART IN THE CONGRESS. IT LASTS UNTIL SEPTEMBER 18.

    THE SECRETARY-GENERAL OF THE HELLENIC ASTRONAUTICAL SOCIETY, MR E. PETROPOULOS, HAS SAID THAT TEAMS OF SECURITY POLICE WELL KEEP A CLOSE WATCH ON DR WERNER VON BRAUN OF AMERICA AND MR LEONID SEDOV OF RUSSIA, CONSIDERED TO BE "FATHER" OF THE SPUTNIKS.

    THE CONGRESS IS EXPECTED TO RESULT IN AN EXCHANGE OF USEFUL INFORMATION ON ALL BRANCHES OF SCIENCE CONNECTED WITH SPACE. BOTH AMERICA AND RUSSIA WERE INVITED TO SEND ASTRONAUTS.
