ATHENS. Aug. 15. (Delayed In Trans
mission) Aug. 19-(Speclal Cablegram to
New York World and Omaha Bee.) I
have been able to ascertain the opinion
of a number of leading Greek politician
as to the policy they . consider . Greece
Should adopt in the present crisis. . M.
Theotokls, whose Germanophlle leanings
ara well known, holds that Greece should
maintain strict neutrality.
M. Mailt, M. Dragoumia, M. Mavrc
michaells, favor adhesion to the triple en
tente. This also Is th overwhelming ver
dict of public opinion.
M. Mailt sold that the policy of Isola
tion would be a fatal mistake for Greece
In 'a struggle In which the whole future
of the Greek race Is at stake, and that
Greece must Join the side on which it
rights and aspirations have found sym
pathy and support.
While the government still adheres to
Its policy of neutrality,.-events are fast
developing which It would seem will put
an end to this course. It Is noteworthy
that the. prees organs, which hitherto
have advocated absolute neutrality, now
declare that the sale of German ship ta
Turkey removes all doubt as to what
Greece has to expect from Germany,
while Anstrlan hostility to vital Greek:
ntoroats haa long been amply proved.
