  • Description

    Military parades, church services and public festivities marked the eighteenth anniversary of "Ochi" or "No" Day October 28 -- the day Greece threw Mussolini's ultimatum back at him in 1940. King Paul, with Premier Karamanlis, took the tribune of honour at the Salonika celebrations.

    Earlier Premier Karamanlis had received a message from Mr. Averil Harriman, Governor of New York City, stating that October 28 had been proclaimed as "Day of Greek Resistance" in New York State.

    Karamanlis's own "Ochi" Day message to the nation dealt with the Cyprus situation. It read, "United as one man at the time, with that steadfast unity characteristic of the Greek Nation in times of hard and unequal struggles, Greece fought and won the victory. Today we call on all Greeks to show the same unity in the struggle in which our brethren in Cyprus are engaged for the realization of their aspirations."
