A special appeal lo the Greeks of
South Carolina to como to tho aid of
their suffering countrymen, drive:?
from t hoir homes by tho Turkish
armies, was made to-day by A. Frank
Lever, president of tho First Cand?
nas Joint Stock Land Dank, also tim
State chairman of the Near East Re
lief, following receipt of a cable .rain
from Cons'nntinoplo asking for im-'
mediato additional supplies as a re
sult of tho G rock reversos.
"Two hundred thousand Greek ref
ugees from tho Interior of Asia M'i
nor havo poured into Smyrna as a
result of the Greek armies' retreat
beforo the onrushing Turks," the ca
blegram read. The present tremen
dous relief problem of Noar East Re
llof workers calls for prompt and de
cisivo action in order to proven' dis
enso epidemics and starvation from
taking heavy death toll.
All classos and nationalities aro
asked to respond to this emergency
call. Mr. Lover pointed ou: that
every dollar sent Into tho SU?le of
fice at Columbia to-day will be put to
work within two weoks through tho
Near East Relief's banking connec
tions in Constantinople. Supplies will
bo bought and administered to the
stricken people just as fast as tho
money can be cabled abroad.
The first steps toward ameliorat
ing litis desperate situation were ta
ken yesterday at a conference of
American Relief agencies In Constan
tinople under tho chairmanship of
Rear Admiral Mark L./Bristol. Tins
conference was beselged with appeals
and it cabled the national olllce of

Messages from Smyrna, the cable

plight of tl?e refugees who are ob
liged to abandon their homes, bring
ing witli them for hundreds of miles
only what they can carry on their
backs. Sick, starving and exhausted, <
refugees swamp relief facilities of
American workers.
The Near East Relief has been op
crating in nil small countries of tho
Levant and has cared for a largo
number of Crooks. The present
plight of tho Greek peoples, how
ever, is the largest appeal which has
yet come beforo tho Near East He

said, or should be sent to the local

Promnturo opening continued in

mostly poor. In Louisiana the con

from Mississippi.
"Bolls oponed rapidly in Alabama,
many prematurely becauso of high
temperature and dry woather, and
further deterioration was reported
from Tennessee. It was hot and dry
in Goorgia until the close of week,
,when genorous rains were received.
Further deterioration was reported
for cotton in thal State, and there
was no top crop.
"There were further complaints
of shedding in South Carolina on
account of drought and weevil activ
ity, with premature opening and a
steady decline in tho general condi
