    The Newly Elected Officers of the Greek Community in Chicago

    p. 2- The very much disputed administration of the Greek Community in Chicago is a thing of the past since the official election of last Sunday.

    As Judge Brentano had ordered, the rival factions filed affidavits of their candidacy, and the elections took place under the auspices of a mixed committee, Greek and American, appointed by the Court.

    The newly-elected officials who will administer the affairs of the community are as follows:

    Dr. Gregory Papaeliou, president; St. Spyrakis, vice-president; Chr. Ladas, treasurer; Dem. Papantoniou, secretary. The members of the Council are B. Georgacopoulos, Geo. Koteopoulos, Dem. Karambelas, B. Petropoulos, Athanasius Munjuris, Kyriakos Demas, Geo. Tsikhias, Const. Stavrakos, Dem. Chiambas, Philip Kekos, and Nicholas Kokinis.


    The management of the Star wishes success to the newly-elected officials and hopes that the prestige of the community will be safeguarded and enhanced.
