    THE FIRST POLITICAL RALLY FOR THE FORTHCOMING (OCTOBER 29) GREEK GENERAL ELECTION WAS HELD AT SALONIKA, NORTHERN GREECE, OCTOBER 1, LAUNCHED BY FORMER PRIME MINISTER CONSTANTINE KARAMANLIS IN ARISTOTELOUS SQUARE.

    THOUSANDS OF THE FOLLOWERS OF MR. KARAMANLIS CARRIED BANNERS STATING "WE ARE WITH YOU - SALONIKA WILL VOTE FOR YOU - CONTINUE YOUR STRUGGLE - CRUSH COMMUNISM - YOU ARE OUR LIFE-TIME PRESIDENT" ETC.

    AFTER SIX YEARS AS PRIME MINISTER, MR. KARAMANLIS THE LEADER OF THE NATIONAL RADICAL UNION, FACES THE OPPOSITION OF EIGHT POLITICAL PARTIES OF DEMOCRATIC AND LIBERAL BELIEF. CHALLENGING THE RADICAL UNION IS A STRONG COALITION OF ALL THESE CENTRE PARTIES LED BY MR. PAPANDREOU, FORMER LIBERAL PRIME MINISTER.

    THE COMMUNIST UNION OF THE DEMOCRATIC LEFT IS REPORTED TO BE SUFFERING THE RESULTS OF KRUSHCHEV'S STATEMENT ON THE POSSIBLE BOMBING OF THE ACROPOLIS, THE BERLIN AFFAIR, AND THE DETECTION OF RADIO-ACTIVE FALL-OUT OVER GREECE.
