GREEK POPULATION OF TURKEY
A CRISIS AT AIVALI

The Scotsman,
July 20th, 1915

                                                  Athens, July 18.
  The  situation  of the  Greeks  in  Turkey  continues
most  critical, and  according to  reliable  news  from
Mytilene  the  Greek  population  of  Aivali  has been
ordered  to   evacuate  that  town.   This  news  has
been greatly irritated public opinion, and the Govern-
ment  has  addressed  an  energetic  protest  to  the
Sublime Porte.
  Aivali  is  a   purely  Greek  town.   The  population
of 25,000 has been  ordered  to  withdraw  into  the
interior   of   Asia   Minor.   The   inhabitants,  it   is
added, are  not  disposed  to  leave their  homes for
an uncertain fate without resistance.--Reuter.
