J-'ree entirely from the menace of air

participating actively iti the war f->r
comparatively only a short time,
Athens is to-day in all essential fea
tures exactly as it was in prewar
There is scarcely atty outward sipri
that the country ever was in the gre.it

progress of the war, all the store.-.

amusement in the Greek metropolis
Were doing business a- usuai and the
iniiabitauts t'elt only remotely the ef
fects of the war. Prices i>f f.?<d and
clothing were much higher than in
peace times, but the people suffered
from no such scarcity of these ami
other necessaries of life as did the
populations of I^ondon, I'ar'.s and other
continental cities.
The tourist, who at one time was
one of the most abundant source? of
revenve. howt vcr, disappeared entire
ly during the war.
' The passing years appear on the
whole to ha\e made little change i:i
the Athenian capital. If the visitor
who knew Athens well In days long
ago could pay another pilgrimage to
the historic city, he would see still
the same quaint sights that have al
ways made Athens appear to the for
eigner rustic and unsophisticated, in
the midst of all its cosmopolitanism
