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

Advocate (Burnie, Tas), p. 1.

LONDON, Monday - The Lausanne representative of the "Daily Telegraph" reports that an international commission is inquiring into the conditions of the Greek prisoners in Turkey.

It is reported that out of 30,000 of the rank and file which the Turks admitted were prisoners, only 4,000 are now alive.

Out of 2,000 officers only 750 can be traced. There are also scores of thousands of Greek civilians in Turkey whose numbers are daily diminishing. These horrors will continue until peace is secured.
