THEOREM 1. Let M be a compact two dimensional complex manifold with zero Euler number. Suppose there is a basis {a,, aZ, a3, a3 of the first real cohomology group H(M, R) such that the cup product a, U u2 U (Ye U LY~ is not zero. Then either M is biholomorphic to the complex torus or M is covered by the euclidean space.
