Mr. Rambo, who declared that the one

day truce to be signed so that chil

"The entire village here, so far as
the Armenian population is concerned,
is destitute, having only returned
from exile in late summer and fall.
The Turks have taken everything
they had before the deportation, when
they were driven out without time
to dispose of their furniture, cooking
utensils, stock or anything. The
lurks took it all; and in many cases
either burned their houses, or else
have taken the timbers out of them
for their own use. We have over 200
children many of them orphans
under our care. As many more are
crying for bread right here, to say
nothing of the thousands in other
places. Add to hunger now a severe

with the first snow in 10 years the
worst blizzard we ever saw outside of
Wyoming, and as bad as any there

dren around stoves and firepots in
the safe rooms of the building. Our
sitting and bedrooms were full, my
office was full. The dormitories and
schoolrooms on the east end of the
building were uninhabitable. We
spent the afternoon with carpenters
and men nailing blankets and canvas
over windows and doors to make it
possible to put the children to bed,
which we did by crowding all into the
safe places. The storm abated about
3 A. M., and this morning the over
crowded rooms smelled well, like

how helpless the average native is in
a blizzard, because. I suppose, they
so seldom see them."
