A mission of international good-
will has set the wheels of the Uni-
versity's Television Service in mo-
In response to a request given to
the American Embassy in Athens
by a Committee representing the
Greek Island of Xante, University
Television has produced "A Salute
to Solomos" celebrating the one
hundredth anniversary . of thea
death of the Greek national poet,
Dionisios Solomos.
Celebrations recalling his con-
tributions to Greek literature and
to the war for Greek indepen-
dence are being held throughout
Greece this year.
Features Singers, Dancers
The Television Services film
features the Michigan Singers, a
group of Greek-American dancers
from the Ann Arbor Greek com-
munity and a speech by Univer-
sity President Harlan Hatcher.
Dionisios Solomos, aristocratic
son of a nobleman, was born on
Xante in 1802 and died in 1857.
He was educated in Italy and ac-
tually had to learn the Greek

language to become the national
poet of Greece.
When the Greek revolution
against the Turks broke out, Sol-
omos was approached and asked
to write songs and poems that
might stir the Greeks into greater
nationalism, In the process, he
introduced elements of Western
literature to the archaic forms
of Greek literature.
Poetry Recognized
Solomos was eminently success-
ful. The Greek revolution suc-
ceeded in throwing off Turkish
rule, and Solomos' poetry and
revolution of Greek literature were
recognized throughout the world.
In portraying Solomos' life, the
TV Service has produced a chron-
ological narrative of the high
points of his life. Read by Prof.
Warren E. Blake of the speech de-
partment, the narrative is injected
with-dancing and songs of Greek
The musical theme throughout
is the Greek national anthem,
written by Solomos and sung by
members of the Michigan Singers.
