Brand New One anli-jnnla joke makini; the rounds noes Ihis way: A scientist went lo a brain bank in Ihe year and picked out a specimen lo rent. "That was Napoleon's brain." Ihe bank director says. "II costs month." The scientist pointed lo a second. "Kinsfein's says the director. "That's a week." The scientist indicated a third. "That's a day." says Ihe director. "It belonKod (u former Greek dictator (ieorKe Papadoponlos. It's brand new; never used." The pri'ss, restricted durum Ihe dietalorship, suddenly came alive after Ihe collapse of the junta. Its free wheeling reporlorial style and hold headlines decorate every kiosk in the country. Recently several dailies splashed reports that former junta lenders had left for abroad with fortunes amassed during the dictatorship. "Michalos is now livini; in London." one newspaper said abonl ex-minister loannis Michalos. A letter from Michalos the next day showed he had never left for London, and all other junta leaders arc still in Greece. Such reporting led the un- dersecretary of press and in- formation.

But that has all changed. Comedy skits, frequently off-color, make fun of the former military rulers. Another favorite target is U.S. Secretary of State Kissinger, accused by many Greeks of favoring Turkey during the Cyprus crisis. Kissiuuer is portrayed by comedians as wearing a the traditional Turkish hat and smoking opium gnm in an Oriental water pipe These performances are hearlly applauded. On Campus Tile politcal change has also swept through Ihe nation's campuses and among many of the students enrolled at Greek universities. Several student demonstra- tions were held at Salnnica and Athens universities to express opposition lo U.S. foreign policy. Professors who had been appointed by the military regime were either dismissed or suspended.

An official investiga- tion has been opened into student charges that at least 101) persons were shot by police, civil and military. People at sidewalk cafes dis- cussing politics no longer stop talking when a policeman approaches. This is in sharp contrast to what occurred during the dic- tatorship when students and boisterous coffee sippers were suddenly rounded up and taken in for questioning when heard Ihe junta. lilrkrrinK Appearing Plate-smashing, once described by a Greek psychoanalyst as an expensive way of releasing frustrations, is back in fashion with no fear of arrest by police. The junta had banned plate-smashing in its efforts to "purify" the Greek way of life. Despite the return of freedom, a feeling of uncer- tainty simmers under the sur- face because of inflation and Uie political situation. Many Greeks are sharply divided over the immediate political (nurse of the country. Bicker- ing between political forces is reappearing. Newspapers representing ultra-right-wing and left-wing groups are demanding the government delay calling elec- tions until political parties and the nation are hotter prepared. Other dailies, expressing the present administration's views, are calling for elections as soon as possible in order for a democratically elected government to confront the country's economic and social ills.
