NAVY Two old battleships, sold
to Greece by the United States;
three more battleships, built some
twenty-seven years ago; one mod
ern armored cruiser; fourteen de
stroyers, seventeen torpedoboats,
two submarines and a few auxiliary
ships. Some of the best units of the
Greek navy were, however, taken
over by the Allies more than a year
ago and were attached to their
Aegean Sea forces.
but of the turmoil resulting from a
radical shift in the' Government of
Greece the deposition of Constantino and
the accession to the throne of I'rlnco
Alexander, second son, rather than the
Crown Prince the trend of events In that
distressed country indicates strongly a
powerful coup for the Allies and the prob
able acquisition of actual military as
sistance. The future, however, depends largely
upon Venlzelos, the powerful ex-Premier,
whose opposition, coupled with Allied
diplomacy, really brought about the down
fall of Constantlne. The situation Is this:
The new King, Alexander, Is liberal,
pro-Ally and a strong admirer of
Venlzelos.
Obviously ho has the backing of
the Allies.
Venlzelos has been the friend of
the Allies in Greek diplomacy.
The overthrow of pro-Germanism
In Greek rulf, which has been Venl-
zelos's chief aim, has been accom
plished and a friend of the Allies
has been seated.
Hence, the question today is, "Will
Venlzelos Join his forces, which are pow
rful among the people, with those of
Alexander and not only restore peace and
order and banish hunger In Greece, but
also lend active aid to the Allied cause9"
AH Indications are that Allied efforts
have or will gain that end.
The strategic significance of Greek co
Operation is that the back door of the
Balkans is now guarded for the Allies and
the Berlln-to-Bagdad route Is doomed.

AN AMERICAN PORT, June 13.
The American liner Kroonland, arriving in port today, reported
she was attacked off the Irish coast by two submarines, one of
which she rammed and sank.
The propeller of the liner was damaged in the fight.
The vessel was eastbound from America to England, but no
word of the encounter reached this country until the big liner re
turned to her home port
By a quick change in her course she bore down upon one of the
submarines before it could submerge or dodge the blow.

by two submarines, which fired two tor
pedoes at her.
One actually struck the liner, but It was
a glancing blow and the war head did not
explode
Tho liner had started steering a zigzag
course as soon ns the wake of a torpedo
was seen
The naval guns aboard tho Kroonland
were manned and shots fired at points

be.
