Papers Gives Much Space
London, Oct. 3.--If the amount of
space given by the press can he re
gardled as an indlex of popular con~t
cern, this country is on the tip-top of
expectancy. Every Lomrlon newspap
er devotes its principal columns to the
subject. The main feature of the
numerous forecasts and speculations
is their infinite variety.
In anti-Greek quarters the activi
ties of formier Premier Venizelos in
Paris andl London continue to be
viCeed with the greatest suspicion.
The Daily Press says M. Venizelos
has address*-l the revolutionary gov
ernment in Athens to agree in prin
ciple to the evacuation of Eastern
Thrace, but to tel Ithe Allies that
Greece will not evacuate the territor
ies until the Powers have dlecidled to
