Recruiting of Volunteers

Under Way.
Jxmdon. April 9.—(Bj the As
sociated Press)—Premier IJoyd
George. aooording to both the
Pan Mali Gazette and the Eve

new peace proposal to the triple
alliance. It is understood he
asked that a proposal be submit

"safety men" were unavailable,
the government should be al
lowed without Interfere
noe, to
supply the labor necessary to
safeguard the coal pits against
permanent ruin."*
The prime minister broached
the subject to the labor delega

according to then newspaper^ ^in

Volunteers Recruited.
London, April .9.—(By the Asso

teer workers and "safety units" was
energetically begun by the govern
ment today, and other plans were
perfected to meet the threat of a
widespread Industrial tie-up next
Tuesday, growing out of the miners'
strike, and involving directly approx
lnvitely 2,000,000 workers.
Meanwhile, however, reports from
various parts of England. Scotland
and Wales indicate that the triple al
liance executive board may have more
to do than the mere issuance of its
strike decree in order to bring about
a general cessation of work by the
r/Ulway men and the transport, work

The general purpose of these mes

Athens, April 9.—(By The Asso
ciated Press.)—Reverses suffered by
Greek forces in Tnatolia. and the cas
ualties inflicted upon them by the
Turkish Nationalists have caused a
great depression here. Official state
ments on the situation are very
meager and are interpreted to mean
that the government may be with
holding the truth from the people.
Army and government officials are
ipute, but there is a decided note of
alarm and pessimism noticeable here
among classes of Greeks.
News that the army is retiring to
ward the positions originally held
near Brusa caused profound disap
pointment, and sent the drachma
tumbling, quotations reaching 14 to
the dollar.
Cabinet councils are held almost
hourly, and King Cnostantine is re
ported to have abandoned his plan
for a trip to the front. Mobilization is
proceeding slowly, it being reported
that only 25 out of every 100 men
have answered the call to the colors.
It is said that in many parts of
Greece there have been flat refusals
on the part of the reservists to re
port for military duty.
The supply service of the army is
being severely criticised, and the in
telligence work is condemned as weak
and inefficient. There is also criticism
regarding the lack of co-ordination
among units in the field, but the
Greek soldiers have been highly
blamed for
