Cablegrams to Near East Relief
Disclose Critical Situation
Among Starving Armenians.
An epic of American heroism and
devotion In saving the lives of 18,000
children at the last moment before all
Jeod supplies were exhaust ad is re
vealed In a file of cablegrams from
Transcaucasia made public by the
Near East Relief, the American or
ganization which In the past four years
has been the means of saving irore
than a million lives In the old Ottoman
empire.
When the steamer “Qtieqoen,” sent
from Constantinople by Near Bast Be
lief, arrived In the deserted harbor of
Return on April 22, Just ten bags of
door remained In that fity, while In
Alexandropot, Armenia, eighteen thou
sand orphans and seven American re
lief workers were on their last day of
half-rations, when the first trslnload
of American flour arrived.
The first news of the desperate situ
ation of the American relief workers
and their orphan charges retched the
Near East Relief on April 21 In a cable
dated April Ifi, which was the first di
rect message received from the Ameri
cans cut off In the heart of Armenia

trying to look after his clothes.
Rather, what he should have are
clothes that will look after them
selves—Saks Clothes. Strong and
