    According  to  official  reports, the
persecution  of   Greeks   in   Eastern
Thrace
have been renewed  with ex-
treme vigor.
   Crowds of Greek peasants from De-
motica have  arrived  at  Dedeagatch,
and  they report that their wives and
children were massacred.
   Others  crossed  the  Marimza River
in   boats,   with   Turks    firing    on
them.  Many were drowned.
