Nobody could!’ ’’ Thus Eleanor Franklin Egan, in the Saturday Evening Post, quotes How ard Heinz of Pittsburgh, Herbert Hoover’s representative in the Near East, on the real conditions In Arme nia as he saw them with his o\vn eyes. Mr. Heinz had been one of those who had believed the stories of star vation and death in Armenia had been exaggerated. Not until he went him self to the Caucasus did his view's change. Then he was shaken to the foundation of his soul by what he saw'. “Fearful! Awful! Horrible! Unbe lievable!” are some of the adjectives Mrs. Egan says must be used in speak ing of conditions in the Near East, w'here Near East Relief, 1 Madison Avenue, New’ York, supported by con tributions from the American people, ,1s conducting the only organized.effort to save the lives of these utterly desti tute millions. Everything she saw and heard justified the necessity for quick and generous aid from America. Her story of what she witnessed re-en forces the call of the Near East Re lief for aid for stricken Armenia. “ ‘The Hunger grin’ is everywhere evident,” Mrs. Egan writes. “The pitiful hundreds seemed to me to be weeping constantly. Not profoundly as in grief, but whimperingly, ap pealingly as in unbearable physical distress. A terrible population. Un speakably filthy and tatterdemalion throngs; shelterless, death stricken throngs milling from place to place, children crying aloud, women sobbing in broken inarticulate lamentation; men uterly hopeless and reduced to staggering weakness, heedless of the tears rolling down their dirt-streaked faces.” That is her picture of the Arme nians most in evidence in Armenia. These are the throngs. Then she turns to tlie mobs. “Large numbers here and there, wide-eyed, eager, hands outstretched in wolfish supplication; teeth bared in a ghastly grin that had long since ceased to smile—an emaciat ed skin-stretched grin, fixed and un controllable.” “Is it any wonder,” she asks, “that I could not swallow my food? I threw it to the children in the ravening hordes and started small riots. The children fought together, snarled and clawed at one another for small bits of army biscuit or morsels of bully beef. "And then I was told that many of them were so starved that solid food PEOPLE GIVE UP THE “GET RICH QUICK” IDEA. Little Rock, March 6.—The Blue Sky Department of the Bank Com mission reports that there has bee'n a decided falling off in the oil com pany craze. So few of the companies that flooded the state with stock are paying anything at all that there has ■ ■ 3. [ -- Collecting gras* to be eaten aa food In Armenia. Thousands die after terrible suffering from eating grass “The starvation grin,” so common in Armenia, as described by Mrs. Egan in her article. was likely to kill them instnntly. Tills wns too terribly true. Yet in the whole length and breadth of the land there was not an ounce of food of the kind necessary for such oases. At Kars I saw one man die with bread in his teeth. And if you will consent to look with me upon a too awful thing I will add that he shewed evidence of having eaten too much grass. “I went hungry in Armenia, and I associate remembered pangs of my own with all my recollections of the terrible land. I had plenty of food with me, but for days on end I could not eat. It was a physical impossibil ity. “And I came to a point, too, when to look upon tilings that had to be looked upon set my heart to quaking in « horror difficult to describe.” Of her first sight In Armenia of the terrible condition of the people Mrs. Egan writes of the scenes on her way to Kars: I been a sort of a public revulsion against the business as a whole, and j the demand for new companies has not been nearly so brisk as it was for a time. But there rae others. Just now the craze is for the sale of stock in com panies being organized for the manu I facture of automobiles, trucks and (tractors. rPactically all of them are “Everywhere in the fields there were people down on their knees searching for grasses to eat. Those near the railroad lifted their heads and gazed at our train as it rushed past, and I caught glimpses of terrible faces. An old man sitting at the top oi an em bankment waved a handful of grass at me where I stood at the ear window, then threw his head back and laughed a maniacal laugh. I began then to feel the cold chills with which I was to shiver for days on end.” Of Kars she writes: “It had been raining for days, and wherever one looked one saw nothing but misery and mud. Between the rail road tracks were unsightly pools and puddles, through which many human scare-crows trudged back and forth. “They were a multiple Lazarus, and the train wras the rich man’s table. They were begging for crumbs. I be gan to hear for the first time the whin ing indescribable phrase that sounded to me li£e 'O-na-ne, O-na-ne.' It was so fqpbly, so plaintively murmured, ‘O-na-na.’ ” Mrs. Egnn asked what it meant and was told the nearest equivalent was “Oh, my soul 1” “But,” she says, “it was more than that; it was a prayer for mercy.” Describing a makeshift hospital be fore tfte arrival of the Near East Belief workers, Mrs. Egan writes: “The sick In their unbelievable rags were lying around on the floors—bun dles of unimaginable wretchedness. The doctor was not doing anything at all for them. Wliat could he do? He had not so much as a single ounce of medicine of any kind. The little peo ple were more pitiable than the adults. The ward, if I may call It that, had in it not one stick of furniture of any kind, and the children were aU lying on the dusty and rubbish-strewa floor with nothing under them and no covering save the rags they wore.” from outside the state.
