CIVIL SERVICE QUESTIONNAIRE
The Greek junta has forced the nation's 200,000 civil servants to fill out a questionnaire that is being used as a criterion for continued employment. The questionnaire, marked "Top Secret," is issued to each civil servant and must be completed on the spot. The regime has made a concerted effort to prevent its publication, and the copy which the Crimson has seen may be one of the first to be smuggled out of the country.
The following questions are directly translated from the questionnaire:
1. To which Organization, Committee or Association have you belonged or do you belong, and from what date? ...Do you continue to be a member, or when did you cease to be?
