In some western cities there are evidences of a movement to defeat registration but the Department of Justice, it was officially announced, Is fully prepared to deal with offenders , under existing laws and the new espionage bill nearlng completion in Congress which imposes heavy penalties for such offenses.

ConBtanldl, first secretary of the Greek legation here, today presented his papers of resignation to the State de partment and announced his allegiance to the forces of Venlzelos. His action, because of bis long connection with the Greek foreign office gave the diplomatic corps a shock. Mr. Constantinidl declared he had been discontented with being connected with King Constantlne's government since the United States declared war. "As I see it," he said, "it Is the duty , ' of every humane and honest man to arraign himself on the side of America and the Entente. The whole terrible situation has narrowed down to a simple question of humanity and civil ization against German barbarity and bestllity of a type almost beyond human belief. When a nation of people calling themselves civilized human beings begin to sink hospital ships, murder women and children and use their dead for manure it is time for decent men to turn their faces away."
