Therefore, let there be no possible

The New Greece

(Greek National Daily Atlantis.)
At the time when the fondest hopes
of the Greek nation are the
ithaiflts and gratitude of the entire
! Hellenic people g«LiP,u;at great Am
lerican citizen who first put tl& ban
| on secret treaties and the recognition
of the rights of small nations on the
victorious banners of the Great Alii-
Without President Wilson the chanc
es of Greece in winnin grecognition
of her just claims were in many in
stances obscured by the arrangements
made previously between the Euro
pean members of the alliance, and the
| old school diplomacy had things so
well in hand that one cannot see how
jit would be ever possible to satisfy
Hellas at the expense of the stronger
nations who had gotten in the fight
before Greece and who had played by
far a more important role in the set
tlement of the great armed enterprise
for freedom and democracy.
America’s intervention, America’s
great sacrifice of blood and treasure,
America’s idealism, more than any
thing else have helped Greece to win
what is her greatest victory at the
peace conference. We Americans of
Greek blood have no illustions about
the powers and ability of a small
country to do a big thing. But at
the same time we kniw also that all
the power of Hellenism, and all its
effort could not have brought about
the present results, had it not been
for the olfty idealism of President
Wilson, who took the cudgel in fa
vor of Hellas, because he saw that
what the Hellenic race had claimed
at the peace table was based on
Right alone.
President Wilson has studied the
history of Greece very well to know
that whenever Hellas held power,
she used it for the liberation of the
oppressed, and the progress of man
kind. The Hellenic democrat that
built a Parthenon. The Hellenic
empire that for one thousand years
held back the barbarous forces of the
East, are the best proof of what the
Greeks will do when they are strong.
Hellenic nationalism triumphs to
day after rive centuries in the Near
East. Democracy again is establish
ing the Greek bulwark against the
dark forces that are advancing from
the North to overwhelm the peoples
of the Mediterranean,.
And Greece once more taking her
place of yore in the Levant unites
in blessing the name of the great
American president and the power
ful republic he represents, and grate
fully acknowledges its debt of grati
tude to the triumphing democracies of
Great Britain and France, while ex
tending a friendly hand to the neigh
boring Italian people, in whose name
the government of Rome has just ae
complisred an act of justice for which
Oldsmar, Fla., May 19.—The citi
zens of Oldsmar took their stand
against bolshevism and anarchy at a
big public meeting held in Assembly
hall. The dangers of I. W. W. and
other movements were pointed out in
ab'e speeches by Hon Chas. H. Brown
and Frank Whitman of Tampa, and by
Rev. L. H. Shumate and James H.
Thompson, of Oldsmar.
In introducing Mr. Brown, Chairman
Thompson called him the mayor of
Tampa, and added that Mr. Brown
was president of the Tampa board of
trade, president of the. Tampa & Gull
Coast railway, president of the Olds
mar Turpentine Products Co., and
president of the Presidents’ associa
tion. President Brown made a very
happy address in which he said: •
“I consider it a rare privilege and
pleasure to be asked to address the
inhabitants of this progressive solony,
who have demonstrated the beneficial
results of perseevrance, industry and
cooperation; I doubt if there exists
anywhere in this great state of Flori
da a community representing a more
cosmopolitan citizenship than Olds
mar. You have accomplished remark
able improvefents, splendid develop
ment and your progressive and prac
tical methods of farming have been a
revelation to us old timers. We ad
mire your thrift and appreciate your
intelligence. We welcome you and are
proud to be able to call you neighbors.
May each of you continue to prosper
and may Oldsmar become a beehive of
industry, exceeding the* fondest
dreams of its founders.
• “It is imperative' that we adopt
harsh and effective means to combat
the insidious propaganda and anarch
istic instructions promoted by the I.
W. W. I would insult your intelli
gence if I eevn asked your opinion re
garding the recent conspiracy to mur-.
der some twenty-five of our nationally
prominent citizens by means of infer
nal machines mailed to them, one of
which did kill an innocent servant girl
and blasted both hands off of the
wife of an intended victim.
“Imagine, if you can, a mind so per
verted as to entertain such a diaboli
cal, treacherous and inhuman concep
tion of justice. Then draw upon your
fertile imagination and conceive an
i The Royal theatre will show the
greatest aggregation of high-priced
’actors and actresses on the screen to
night at that popular house that has
ever been brought to this city. Man
ager Pitman has arranged for 11 reels
of the very best pictures for his show
tonight and it is expected that the
theatre will be crowded. Mary Pick
ford, than whom there is none better,
will appear in Captain Kidd, Jr>. a
| most remarkable drama of 5 reels,
which is alone o first-class entertain
ment. It is an Artcraft picture that
has no lack of star parts and every
actor is' a star. •
Then there will be Francis X. Bush
man and Beverly Bayne in Social
Quicksands, another 5-reel picture of
more than ordinary merit. 'Last, but
Viot least, there will be the invincible
Charlie Chaplin who will send you
away with sore sides after you have
seen him in “The Hotel Mixup.” Char
lie is simply immense in this role.
We wish to congratulate Manager
Pitman for his successful efl’orts to
bring nothing but first-class shows to
this city.
Dayton Cassidy, formerly of this
city, now traveling out of Tampa, was

Hellas in the Near East aspires at
nothing 'than to become once more
worthy of her great past and of her
best traditions. That is the only
promise the Helelnic people can give
today to the allied democracies of the
world and to mankind jn general.

j staff of the Florida Grower, is devel
oping into a finished orator. He sur-
{ prised and pleased his best friends by
! the impressive manner in which he
| handled the danger to democracy
which is threatened by the advocates
of the outlaw style of doing business.
Mr. Whitman drew u moving picture
of sacrifices which have been made by
the United States mothers and fath
ers in the great world war, and asked
if this was done in vain—if ignorant
foreign agitators should be allowed'to
j nullify the accomplished work of mak-.

I Kaiserism was overthrown, but if boi
* sfiewsin should come out on top, it
j would be a worse dictatorship and a
I more cruel autocracy than the kaiser
i ever dreamed of.
I Mr. Russell Kay, advertising mana
j ger of the Florida Grower, was called
i on unexpectedly T>y .Chairman Thomp
) son, and proved himself to be a won
derful extemporaneous speaker, deliv
; ering one of the most interesting ad
dresses of the evening, in which he
gave high praise to Mayor Ole Olson
; of Seattle, who broke up a threatened
' bolshevistic movement in that city by
j a wide-awake policy which received
‘ the support of a great mapority of the
j people who had not yet gone crazy.
Rev. Pr. L. H. Shumate, pastor of
j the First M. E. church of Oldsmar,
j told how the I. W. W. and bolshevjsm
j threatened religion, law and order,'
i their acknowledge slogan being: “No
j God, no church, no nation.” In other
: words, it is. a band of infidels bent
; upon destroying religion and over
| turning national governments. Dr.
i Shumate told of one instance in Rus
|sia where a bolshevist jabbed a paint
-1 in gos the Savior in the mouth and
1 stuck a cigarette in the mouth of the
painting. Dr. Shumate called upon all
sane people to be aetive in stopping
bolshevism right where it is.
Mrs. Russel! Kay delighted the au
dience with two artistically played
niano solos, and the program closvd
with a stirring rendition of the pa
triotic song, “My Own United Stated”,
Sung by Mrs. J. C. Martin, Tom Mar
tin and Bob Martin.
The American Defense society of
New York city has taken this anti
bolshevistic movement in hand and
has organized branches in many of
the large cities and towns of the Unit
ed States to handle the situation. They
do not propose to let a few bolshe
vists run amuck in the United Spates,
seeking to destroy the best form 0 f
government the world has ever had
for the people at large. Under the
laws of the country the majority
rules. The bolshevists are a very ex
tremely small minority but they make
as much noise as a bass drum does
compared to a hundred violins.
