Kelsey To Tell
Of Stricken Near;
Last Countries
Stories of travel, hardships, of starv-I
ing Christians, of the massacres of
Turks and Armenians and the relief
given stricken countries in the Near
East by American Relief commissions,
are the subjects which Prof. W. Kelsey,.
of the Latin department, will discuss
tonight at the Presbyterian church.
Professor Kelsey has recently returned
from the Near East and his lecture is
based on actual conditions as observed
by him.
The lecture, which is illustrated, is
to be given under the auspices of the
Women's Missionary society of the
Presbyterian church. There will be no
admission charged but a silver offering
will be taken and used for the relief
commissions operating in the East.
Had Unusual Opportunities
Professor Kelsey and George Swain,
who did the photgraphy work, went
to the Near East in 1919, as soon as
the state department in Washington
would permit them to go. The oppor-
tunities which Professor Kelsey and,
Mr. Swain had for the study of condi-
tions in the Balkans and Turkey were;
unusual. .
Bulgaria had not yet signed the
peace treaty and negotiations with the,
Turkish government in regard to peace
terms were in an acute stage when
Professor Kelsey and Mr. Swain left
this country. But having both military
and diplomatic support they were givenI
every possible facility to go wherever
it was considered safe for them to
travel. They reached Constantinople
in December 1919 after spending some
time in Bucharest, capitol of Rumania,
and Sofia, the capitol of Bulgaria.
With Relief Committee
At that time the Berlin-Bagdad rail-
road which during the war had been
completed nearly to the Euphrates,
was being put in order and irregular
train service was beginning. The
United States High commissioner in
Constantinople arranged to send them
with the director of the Near East re-
lief and a number of workers from the
Dermide, :which during the war was
a German naval base, to Aleppo in
Upper Syria.
Three freight cars were filled with
bunks and a. fourth was used as a
kitchen and diningroom. The four
cars were sidetracked at Konieh, which
is the Iconium of the New Testament.
In this manner Professor Kelsey and
Ms. Swain had an opportunity to make
a first hand study of conditions and
to make photographs of the many as-
pects of the relief work. None of these
pictures are of the particular harrow-
ing kind, rather they show the vast
number of orphans helped through this
relief as well as the adults who must
for a time depend upon outside charity
or die of starvation.
Death Rate Enormous
In Syria during the war, 25 per
cent of the entire population starved
to death and in some parts of the
country the mortality from starvation
alone ran as high as 65 per cent of
the population. This was the result,

according to Professor Kelsey, of a
deliberate policy on the part of the
Turks to starve the Syrians out, es-
pecially the Christian Syrians.
The near East Relief work during
the war was carried on by American
missionaries who stayed at their posts
throughout all of that period, and
whose funds came from this country.
Immediately after the war an ef-
ficient organization was created which
has disbursed more than $30,000,000
in a single year. At the present mo-
ment massacres and deportations of
Greeks in Turkey and of Armenians
who survived the deportations and
massacres of the war, are in progress.
PROF. PhILLIPS WILL SPEAK
BEFORE STUDENTS AT 0. S. U.
"Contact Between r. aduate and
Under-Graduate Courses," will be the
subject of a lecture which Prof. Ul-
rich D. Phillips, of the history depart-
ment of the University, will deliver
today before the staff and graduate
students at Ohio State University.
Athena to Organize New Society
Votes were taken Tuesday evening
at a meeting of Athena Literary so-
ciety as to the advisability of forming
a new society similar to the Athena
society. This action was unanimously
favored for the fact that there is a
large number of students on the camp-
us who would do good work in such a
society but who can not be taken into
Athena because of the limit set to
membership. A committee has been
appointed to work on the plans of or-
ganization and formal action will take
place within a short time.
