Mycenae Echoes Past Number 97 EDITORS is ont of a scries of daily reports by our editor on a trip by air around the world How people live and how they feel toward America are more em phasized by Mr Hall than scenic features By W EARL HALL pORINTH the light of a tiny flickering candle I fumbled my way down the uneven steps of a secret tunnel in the Citadel of Mycenae which was known to that Homeric hero Ag amemnon some years be fore the Birth of Christ The dank narrow passageway known only to the royal family in those longago days led to a deep underground cistern designed for use as a source of water supply when the fortification which in cluded the kings palace was un der prolonged seige From the ruins above I had looked out for many miles in all directions upon Mt Parnassus with its Temple of Apollo upon the Gulf of Argolikos and myriad islands of the Aegean sea and upon the thousands of acres ol olive groves and vineyards which cover this mountainous area Famous Gate Entrance to the citadel is by a famous gate over which are two colossal lions the earliest work of sculpture extant on Greek soil The principle of the arch and key stone had not yet been discovered in this Mycenae civilization which preceded the Golden Age ol Pericles by as much as a thous and years It was an outgrowth of the one cradled in Crete and pro vided Homer with some of his best known legends Here in Corinth I stood on the exact spot where Paul preachec his sermons to the Corinthians in the Agora marketplace of this ancient city within the shad ow of a tall mountain with im pressive fortifications still visible for 25 miles around the Gulf o Corinth The Temple of Apollo here is a bit less ambitious than the one erected to the same Goc at Delphi some 50 miles away Special Ceremony Throughout Greece on this day Orthodox Churches are partici paling in a special ceremony which involves submerging cross in some body of water Here at Corinth as we entered the city a giaijt procession was forming preparatory to the waterfron ritual a mile or so away In this is a reminder of the es sential difference between the purpose of the modern church anc the ancient temple The church of today is designed to serve the people by bringing them the stor of salvation But in those ancien days the one to Apollo here and the Parthenon in the purpose o placating a god Whether anybodj ever attended the temple after i was erected was highly second ary The 80mile ride out here from Athens this morning led througl some of the worlds most pictur esque country Im persuaded Much
