The re mainder of the island-dotted Ae gean' is largely Greek.) Greeks are convinced that the new turn of events will cloud post. W’ar territorial settlements in the Aegean area, where Greece is in tent on holding her own against all claimants. There was no official comment from the foreign ministry. The usually well-informed news paper Anexartisia quoted Turkish, quarters in Athens as saying that Turkey would send a division to the western front to symbolize her participation in the Allied cause. _-—v-— STELLE TO ATTEND LEGION CEREMONY John Stelle, of McLeansboro. 111. and former governor of that state will attend the dedication of the new American Legion home here March 3.
