AMERICANS LEAD FIGHT AGAINST
APPALING MISERY AS MILLIONS
EXCHANGE HOMESE IN NEAR EAST
H. O. JAyllTH ai
Smyrna Hero Who Heads Near East Iti-liuf Work Among Deportees
LLEVIATINQ the misery of
two million people, torn from
their homes and forcibly mov
ed to distant lands, where customs,
languages, and surroundings are
strange and confusing to them, Is
the task confronting American
workers of the Near East Relief In
the Bulkans to-day. -
Primarily the situation was
brought about by the flight of more
than a million Greeks from Turkey
following the Smyrna disaster. The
Exchange of Populations agreement
written Into the Lausanne treaty was
the other contributing factor. It
Increased the numbers Involved by
i most one hundred per cent, about
half of them Moslems from the
Qri-ek Islands and Macedonia, the
rest being the remaining Greeks in
Theoretically the situation Is
handled by a high commission and
eleven sub-commlsalons, headed by
neutrals with Greek and Turkish
Actually much of the work lias
fallen on the Americans, who were
ipecincally requested by the High
Commission to begin the transfer
before the necessary sub-commls-Jlons
could function. At that time
Oreece was overrun with refugees,
who wore dying In the camps by the
hundreds and whose rehabilitation
In (ireece depended on settling them
on property occupied by Moslems.
With the consent of both the
r'klh and Greek Governments the
transfer wns placed under the dir
ection of H. C. Jaqulth. who had
directed Near Ktin Relief forces dur
ing Hie Sinyri, d'mter and wheaa
efforts during four years as foreign
head of America's most populai
philanthropy had demonstrated hii
impartiality and fitness for the task.
One of the chief problems In con
nection with the enforoed migration
has been that of child welfare. Wilth
the Moslems going to Turkey this
question has not been acute. The
high death rate among the Greek
refugees, the unsanitary condition!
in which they were forced to live
on their flight, and the hardships
they have endured have wiped oul
all adults in un-numbered families,
leaving the children helpless.
In the refugee camps of Balonla,
an Important debarkation point foi
the Greeks, there are eleven thous
and orphans with many times that
number of half orphans, whose only
protectors are widowed mothers and
aged grandparents. These young,
stem have been the chief concern ol
Mr. Jaqulth and the American child
welfare experts on his staff. An
effort has been made to care for as
many as possible In the Golden Rule
orphanages of the Near East Rellel
in which there are already 9.000
children. But the resources at his
command are bo limited that only a
small fraction are receiving care. '
The remainder constitute a tremend
ous problem for the coming year.
How is the problem to be met?
Mr. Jaqulth and his associates art
frank in declaring that It can noi
be met with their present budget
They have one hope. This Is that
the observance of Internationa;
Golden Rule Sunday on rwembpi
7th throughout the clvl'ized work:
will prove fruitful propazin da foi
raising ths necessary 't'ml.t.

Copper Carbonate Best
Treatment This Year
By R. W. MORSE, County Agent.
Some Morrow county farmers are
undecided ai to the method of aeed
treatment to use this fall. During
the past four yearra many hundreds
of trials of the Pacific Coast have
shown that there is very little dif
ference in amut control by the for
maldehyde, bluestone and copper car
bonate methods of treatment. The
advantages of copper carbonate, es
pecially under weather conditions
such as we are having this fall, make
this method much more desirable than
the wet treatment. Conditions in the
fall of 1923 were very favorable for
wheat germination so that very little
difference in stand was obtained by
any treatment. In the fall of 1922,
the following stand counts were ob
tained in the wheat nursery on the
Jake Wells farm near Heppner, on
Hybrid 128: Bluestone, of stand,
39; Bluestone and Lime, 81; Formal
dehyde, 70; Copper Carbonate, 100.
On tests run the past year on the
Troy Bogard farm near lone, the foi.
lowing stand counts were made on
spring-planted bluestem. This was
Jljttr every meal
sweet and a
pianted the 25th of March and there
was enough moisture in the ground
to bring the grain up promptly.

Smut Proof Oat Variety
A new government publication en
titled "Markton, an Oat Variety Im
mune from Covered Smut," is ready
for distribution. This bulletin gives
the history of and the results obtain
ed with the new Markton oat variety
developed by the Branch Experiment
Station at Moro, Oregon. This oat
variety in addition to being immune
from smut is apparently well adapted
to many sections of the Northwest,
especially eastern Oregon aVid east
ern Washington. It is a high-yielding,
eariy maturing variety with short
straw and long slender kernels. Ba- j
cause of its disease resistance and 1
yielding ability it is considered a 1
very valuable addition to the oat va
rieties of the Northwest. Fanner in
