Pr. Isaac M Yonan. at the First Presbyterian church pictured the plight of or-! phaned Armenia and the near east < ir a manner almost to break the hearts of his audience. CertafnFv those hearts were melted with a compassion that goes out to hungry, helpless childhood that for four years] or more has not known a mother's ?.?r .i uauut . ? iuai i and starving: that lifts its eyas in dumb appeal to its only source of hope?America. It is a picture hard to comprehend because it :s so foreign to anything most people of this country, blessed I with neace and plenty, huma nkir.dness and a wholesome fear of God hi-ve ever witnessed. It is possible ; to the near east because there, instead of Christianity, is a setting of Mohammedan cruelty, of Turkish brutality that beggars the most terrible adjective of the language to describe. Could Dr. Yonan speak to all of the American people a she spoke last night, there need never be an: other appeal uttered on behalf of the Armenians, tht near east.

That weeding out of the men tilted nieely into 1 the tincdish Turkish scheme of removing the Armenians forever from the earth. Then the\ took the Werner. mothers and girls appealing to their lustful eyes -and sold them into the hellish slavery of Turkish harems. The old people left were ruthlessly slaughtered and the ehu dren driven out into the fields to die. Those were events that came in the ; main daring and immediately foliow 1 ing the war. Since 1019 those thousands upon thousands of children j have been at the mercy of a cruel i fate.
