The worthiness or depravity of the Soviet bloc and its Western opponents has long been fought on the battleground of a few specific incidents. For example: the case of CBS correspondent George Polk, whose blindfolded and bound body was found in a bay in northern Greece in 1948. Was he slain by Communists, rightists, or the Greek government? In his book, Who Killed George Polk?, Elias Vlanton assesses the murder’s repercussions and offers his own theory as to what happened. Vlanton discusses his book at 6 p.m. at the Ripley Center Lecture Hall, 1100 Jefferson Dr. SW. $13. For reservations call (202) 257-3030. (Mark Jenkins)
