HORRORS OF ASIA MINOR
COL. RAWLINSON'S REPORT.

Singleton Argus, (NSW).
Nov 24, 1921.

           (Reuter's Cables.)
     The first  report of Colonle  Rawlin-
son, lately  released by the Turks,  and
received  in London, gives an appalling
account  of the conditions in Asia Minor.
He says  that  of 9000 Armenian prison-
ers   from   Kars   employed  in   labour
gangs in the neighbourhood of Erzeroum,
all perished  except  800.   The  victims
were replaced by Greeks deported from
the coast districts, whose death in the
winter  Colonel Rawlinson considers as
certain.
