   ADANA,  Turkey.  July   1.  -  Kemal
Pasha,  head  of the  Nationalist   gov-
ernment at  Angora, has issued orders
that all American missionaries resident
in Cilicia  discontinue  their  work  and
leave  the  country  immediately.  The
Turks  appear to  be  working on a de-
liberate plan to  get  rid  of  minorities
before the  peace  settlement  in   the
view of observers here.  Doctor  Ward
of the  Near  East  Relief   commission
confirms  reports  that  10,000   adult
Greeks in Asia Minor alone have been
massacred and  that  the  relief  com-
mission was  not  allowed  to   shelter
children.
   Great  Britain seems to  be  now the
center of attack by the Kemalist press.
One newspaper recently published the
following:
   "It is  the  British who  sow  discord
and trouble among you,  oh  servants
of Christ. You should  therefore know
that if the commandments of the Holy
Spirit are ten in number, the eleventh
should  be  hatred  against  England."
   "And you  followers of  Mohammed,
every  time  you  kill  a  Christian, you
are pulling  down  one  of  the  corner
stones of  the  British  empire.  There-
fore for God's  sake massacre, for the
love of your  country massacre, in the
name of crying humanity massacre, for
the salvation of the world massacre."
