mutual interest lo parentsf and tea
chers were discussed. Miss Work

must bring sandwiches from home,
as they would not be Reived at the
cafeteria any more. ! rj. Mulkey
presented several problems of vital
Interest and some were I.Med for
future discussion. Mrs. Boardman
urged that teachers oversc , .o use

London. With the virtual accept
ance by Mustapha Keniul Pasha of a
conference at Mudania, the whole
near eastern situation is considered
emporarily easier. However, the fact
that. Turkish troops were still concen
trating in the Ismid zone, notwith
standing thai they had retired slight
ly in the Chanak zone, would Indicate,
according to remarks made after the
British cabinet's second meeting, that
"Kenial is still playing a game."
The Mudania meeting will be a pure
ly military affair, to arrange, accord
ing to the original allied note to
Kenial Pasha, that the neutral zone
tii iil be respected and also to agree
upon lines behind which the Greeks
are to withdraw iu Thrace, both points
pending the general peace couferenoe.
There will be present military repre
