    NEW YORK'S COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY YESTERDAY (WEDNESDAY) CONFERRED AN HONOURARY DOCTORATE OF LAWS ON QUEEN FREDERIKA OF GREECE. SHE WAS ACCOMPANIED BY HER DAUGHTER PRINCESS IRENE.

    THE DEGREE COMMEMORATED THE 75TH ANNIVERSARY OF BARNARD, THE UNIVERSITY'S AFFILIATED LIBERAL ARTS COLLEGE FOR WOMEN. IT WAS PROMPTED BY BARNARD'S "LONG ASSOCIATION WITH THE CLASSICAL TRADITION AND THE COLLEGE'S TIES WITH GREECE."
    DESPITE A WARM WELCOME FROM THE UNIVERSITY'S HELLENIC SOCIETY, THE QUEEN RAN INTO DEMONSTRATIONS DEMANDING THE RELEASE OF GREEK POLITICAL PRISONERS.

    ABOUT 30 PICKETS FROM THE ACTION SOCIETY PARADED ON THE UNIVERSITY CAMPUS. THERE WAS NO DISORDER.

    IT WAS QUEEN FREDERIKA'S THIRD VISIT TO COLUMBIA. HER HUSBAND, KING PAUL, ALREADY HOLDS AN HONOURARY DOCTORATE OF HUMANE LETTERS FROM THE UNIVERSITY.
