The Bee's Special Edition
For Ak-SartBefc Makes a Hit
Compliments galore were elicited
by The. Bee's magnificent special Ak-Sar-Ben

Sing "Nearer, My God, to
TJiee," as Axes Fall;
Women Are Sold at
New York, Sept. 30. The slaugh
ter with axes of all the Armenian
faculty members of Anatolia college,
Marsovan, northern Asia Minor, to
gether with 1,200 others by Turkish
peasants was described here yesterday
by the Rev. George E. White, presi
dent of the college, recently returned
to this country.
The massacres were committed at
night by order of the Turkish gov
ernment, he said. The Armenians
were sent out in lots of a hundred or
two to their doom and their bodies
rolled into prepared burial trenches.
The pay of the peasants for the
wholesale slayings was the privilege
of stripping the clothing from the
bodies of their victims.
, "One group of our college boys
asked permission t4 sing before they
died and they sang 'Nearer My God
to Thee,' then they were struck
down," Dr. White said.
"The situation for Armenia became
excessively acute in the spring of
1915 when the Turks determined to
eliminate the Armenian question by j
eliminating ihc Armenians. The
Armenian question arises from po
litical and religious causes.
"On the pretext of searching for
deserting soldiers, concealed bombs,
weapons, seditious literature or revo
lutionists, the Turkish officers ar
rested about 1,200 Armenian men at
Masovan, accompanying their in
vestigations by horrible brutalities.
There was no revolutionary activity
in our region whatever.
Pity to Waste Bullets.
The men where sent out in lots
of 100 or 200 in night 'deportations'
to the mountains where trenches had
been prepared. Gears- peasants, wild
were employed to do what was done,
said it was a 'pity to waste bullets'
and they used axes,
"Then the Turks turned on the
women and children, the old men and
little boys. Scores of oxcarts were
gathered and in the early dawn as
they passed, the sqeaking of their

American Nurses in Gas Masks
Compete for First Trench Duty
American Training Camp in France,
Sept. 30. While awaiting field ex
perience with their own troops, the
army hospitals within the American
zone are sending mobile units com
posed of doctors, nurses and orderlies,
to both the French and British
fronts. These units are operating in
the m6st advanced casualty clearing
stations in co-operation with the Brit
ish and French surgeons.
Doctors and nurses alike are
equipped with gas masks and other
means of protection against German
attacks, which are becoming more
and more frequent on hospitals in the
forward areas. There is much rivalry
among the various hospitals as to who
should have the privilege of going
first, but, according to the present
plans, all the doctors, all the nurses
and most of the enlisted men will
have a turn in a casualty station be
fore the winter.
The American hospitals arc plainly
marked with a great red cross, in ac
cordance with the Geneva convention.
They are situated far from any fight
ing units or supply depots for fight
ing materials, so if- they should ever
be bombed, it will be a deliberate act
by the enemy aimed direct at the
