LONDON TIMES SPECIAL CABLE SERVICE
ATHENS — Turkish  troops  recently  oc-
cupied  Aiden [Aydin] for  two  days  and   has-
tened to arrest forty Greek  boy  scouts
for the services  they  had rendered the
Greek   troops.    The   Turks   marched
them out and asked one of them to  in-
sult   Greece  and   the   premier.    The
boy  made  a   playful   grimace   where-
upon   he    was   murdered.   Then   all
were  asked  to  denounce  their  coun-
try,  but  the  boys   replied  by  singing
the Greek  national  anthem  and  were
promptly massacred.
