"-Why, I never knew a Jew from a
Greek. When I thought of the matter
at all, I always assumed off-hand that
there were practically no Jews in
Greece. Then we got to Salonika. In
Salonika the Jew is everywhere..
Therefore, the grand rabbi begged
for Jewish soldiers to police the city.
I asked my officers for names and
whew.1 they brought me enormous
lists. So we differentiated the Jews
only when we needed them for spe
cial duty. That is at it should b&
we are all Greeks.
"Conditions in the conquered
country are still increditable a vast
charnel-house! Nothing remains but
the memories. Almost every house
has been raised, every true cut,dowh,
every vineyard devastated. It is the
emptiness of five hundred years of
war! We must cup up the empty
provinces into small farms. The in
terests' of the people and .the country
must take the lead of every other in
terest. Greeks must not go to sleep
on their laurels. Conquest does not
create a civilization, .but only the op
portunity for civilization.
"Our new Greece is of incalculable
value. The land is extremely fertile,
the tobacco yield of the finest. 'Turk
ish' cigarets will be Greek cigarets
hereafter. These things will give
more scope to our energies.
"American good will wjlhbe with
us. The Americans are o.ur friends.
For-we have brought Macedonia out
of bondage as America would have
done! But we want you to give us
back our Greek youths! ' Today the
labor of EVERY GREEK is NEEDED
at HOME. The opening of' Mace
donia, indeed, should check Greek
immigration to the United States.
Americans will understand this if it is
prsesented properly to them. So be
careful not to compromise me with
your countrymen. You journalists
have the world at your mercy even
kings!"
