ROOSEVELT MAY AID ARMENIANS Steps to Prevent Further Massar ores ConsideredCranks Threaten President. New York Sun Special Service. Oyster Bay. N Y., July 6.The president is expected soon to make an Important move in the matter of the Armenian atrocities. Every ay let ters and cablegrams tell him of recent massacres of Armenians and urging him to take action to preve nt further slaughter The state department is in possession of all the facts and Presi dent Koosevelt is informed as to latest developments. Both Preside nt Roosevelt and mem bers of his family are staying much closer home this summer than in past yeais. Formerly the president and Mrs. Roosevelt frequently were seen riding and driving thru the village and over the count ry roads, and scarcely a day passed that the children were not seen riding bareheaded thru the vil lage without escort or guides. The villagers do not take kindly to this new exclusiveness. A unusually large number of threatening letters received by the president this ye ar is said to be the chief cause of all the precautions Crank letters from all parts of the count ry are opened by Secretary Loeb dally. It is feared that despite the extra precautio ns of secret service men some of these cranks may get into the village and attack members of the president's family.
