ALLIES DEMAND GREECE SEND
TEUTON DIPLOMATS. HOME
Berlin, via Wireless to Sayville.
England and France have presented
a virtual ultimatum to Greece, ac
cording to Sofiatlisj5atches today,
demanding that Greece hand to the
diplomats of the central empires
their passports within 48 hours.
If the Greek government does not
accept, the allies will take "neces
sary measures," the Sofia dispatch
asserted. The Sofia dispatch, com
ing on the heels of Athens reports
that British troops have been landed
five miles from the Greek capital, left
little doubt in Berlin that the allies
have decided to exert pressure of
armed forces to compel Greece to
abandon her neutral position.
London. Large bodies of Anglo
French troops are being landed on
Greek coast to reinforce Gen. Sarrail

DUD TAYLOR PROTESTS BUCK'S
' STRIKE BUREAU PLAN
Dudley Taylor, attorney for the
Associated Employers of Illinois and
right-hand man for his bread and
butter's sake of all those who op
pose union labor and support the
ooen shop, appeared before the coun
cil police committee this morning to
protest against passage of Aid.
Buck's order creating a strike bureau
in the police department
In the course of his remarks he de
clared that he represented the Illinois
Manufacturers' ass'n, thereby' ad

body for the 111. Mfg. ass'n, in the
opinion of labor men.
To hear Dud talk one would have

making out that he believes that the
strikebreakers are polished courtiers.
Dud appealed to the council com

if council passes it that their present
privilege of hiring strong-arm men
to beat up helpless men and women
will be curtailed.

there could be such a thing as a neu
Taylor, though, admitted that the
employers are afraid of public opin

uniformed policeman in front of a
restaurant where waitresses were
striking would ruin the business of
the restaurant, as the, public would
