THE TERRIBLE TURK
Thousands of Greeks Disappear.
Horror Upon Horror.

Advocate (Burnie, Tas), p. 1.

  LONDON,  Monday  -  The Lausanne
representative  of    the  "Daily   Tele-
graph"  reports  that  an international
commission  is  inquiring into the con-
ditions of  the  Greek prisoners  in Tur-
key.
  It is reported  that  out  of 30,000 of
the rank and  file  which the Turks ad-
mitted were  prisoners, only 4,000 are
now alive.
  Out of 2,000 officers only 750 can be
traced. There are also scores of thous-
ands   of   Greek   civilians   in  Turkey
whose  numbers  are daily diminishing.
These horrors will continue until peace
is secured.
