News in Brief: 'Liberty' For Greek DP's. Dramatic scene of joy and freedom as 32 Greek immigrants, newly arrived, touch their first American soil at Bedloe's Island, home of 'Miss Liberty' (the Statue of Liberty). In their heart-felt joy they kneel down to kiss the earth. The displaced persons wave as they sail toward New York. The new immigrants cross themselves, kiss the ground, and eat hot dogs. Very American!
