Athens Government Sends Appeal for
Relief in Money.
Owing to the serious situation in
Greece which has resulted from the
invasion of that country by scores
of thousands of refugees from Smyrna
and other stricken districts recently
conquered by the Kemalist Turks,
the Greek government has requested
the American Express Company, thru
its agency in Memphis, to make a
strong appeal to Americans for relief
in the form of money with which to
purchase food.
Cables from Athens convey the in
telligence that the problem of feed
ing the vast army of survivors of the
Smyrna catastrophe is extremely dif
ficult and the food supply is dimin-
ishing with alarming rapidity. These
messages further state that the suf
fering of those who escaped the na
tionalist army's advance on their city
is intense, and that every agency in
Greece is fighting valiantly to cope
with the terrific situation.
"It is estimated that more than
490,000 Greek refuges 'already have
arrived in Greece," states one cable
from the Athens office of the Ameri
can Express Company.
"Greece is unable to feed the refu
gees, and this appeal for relief is for
relief in the form of money."
The American Express Company has
made arrangements to place the fa
cilities of its organization at the dis
posal of those wishing to render fi
nancal assistance direct to the local
relief committee.
Official instructions have been is
sued to all the company offices to ac
cept funds for transmission, either
by cable or draft, at actual cost,
when sent in care of the American
Express Company, . Athens, Greece,
and payable to W. S. Taylor, the
Amei ican treasurer of the relief com
mittee at Athens. Mr. Taylor is the
Greek representative of the Stand
ard Oil Company and is president of
the American Chamber of Commerce
in Greece.

We believe that no part of our coun
try offers as great opportunities to the
homeseeker and investor as does Flor
ida, the land of Golden Sunshine,
Golden Fruits and Golden Opportuni
ties. The state yet has much cheap
land that is being rapidly developed
land that may be had for $20 to $50
and made worth $1,000 per acre in five
years and in the mean time pay all ex
penses of developing.
The wonderful climate of Florida,
where lit is literally "Springtime all
the Time" is the foundation upon which
is being erected this wonderful common
wealth. Her shores, washed by the
briny deep and her surface dotted with
thousands of beautiful lakes, her virgin
lands covered with stately pines or
spreading oaks, her golden sunshine
ever tempered by salty breeze, all go to
make an ideal climate.
Everywhere are beautiful deep, clear
lakes, literally alive with choice fish,
surrounded by native forest or golden
orange groves, with clean, white sandy
beach, inviting you to bathe in the
"Fouotain of youth," be it Christmas
time or June.
Florida's "Golden Fruits" include
many varieties of many kinds but the
term is usually understood to refer to
her splendid groves of oranges and
grapefruit, Golden in profit to their
owners, it being not unusual for these
groves to net their owners $1,000 per
acre annually.
Practically all the soil is adapted to
the production of paying crops orang
es, grapefruit, potatoes, cabbage, beans,
tomatoes, cucumbers, celery, lettuce,
and many other fruits and vegetables
being staple and profitable.
Young man; if you want a future all
your own if you believe1 the road is
"cut out" beyond your Jine of vision,
consider these opportunities.
And you older people; why not gold.

As an agricultural proposition you
have here in Obion county- that
which has no superior in any state
for growing grain and the regular farm
products you can find no more product

your citizenry is surpassed by none and
we account it an houor as well as a
pleasure to have met and known some
of the noblest men and women of our
acquaintance, but always there are
some who seek new fields of opportuni
ty where honest effort will yield great
er results.
I truly believe in the West Coast of
of Florida and would be glad to give
you the benefit of my experience and
observation. See me at 318 N. 1st St.,

date write me at Suite 308-9, Citizens
