The Chargé in Greece (Fisher) to the Secretary of State

42. Department’s 30, September 30, 4 p.m. Greek Government will not engage itself to exempt American citizens of Greek origin, naturalized since January 15, 1914 from military service during 1932. While informal exemptions may be made especially for organized groups of excursionists it is preferable to omit last paragraph of article No. 36 in Notice to Bearers of Passports.
