    Special Cable to THE NEW YORK TIMES.
   PARIS.  Nov. 12.  -  The  Journal  des
Debats  prints   the  following  dispatch
from Athens:
   "Dr.  Nansen's mission to  Kemal   has
failed.   The   Kemalists   demand    that
Greece give shelter to 200,000  more wo-
men and  children from  the  Province of
Pontus; otherwise they will be deporterd
to the interior of Anatolia.
   "A  Kemalist   declared   to  Dr.  Nansen
that if it was impossible   for  the   Greeks
to  give  hospitality   to   these   refugees,
and  if   Greece   expelled  Moslems  from
Greek   territory,  the   Turks  would   not
hesitate to massacre the  Greeks   remain-
ing  in  Turkey,  including  Constantinople.
An  American  relief   representative was
informed of a threat to  massacre 20,000
Armenian  and   Greek   orphans   in  the
same   province  who  have  since   been
transported to Greece."
