From the Red Cross Bulletin of Paris, May 17, 1919:) A thens Sunday. The International Commission of Inquiry into the excesses committed by the Bulgars in Eastern Macedonia throughout the two years of Bulgarian occupation, after enimaerating the various crimes, assassinations, robberies and wholesale deportations, praises the work of the American Red Cross. The devotion of the American Red Cross is above all eulogies, says the report. I ts work in eastern Macedonia has been magnificent, and not only the Greek nation but all humanity owes it an eternal debt of gratitude. The report of the International Commission shows that of 339 villages with a total population of 305,000, more than 32,000 died of hunger, of assassination and of disease induced by bad treatment, and that 12,000 died in captivity in Bulgaria. Ninety-four villages were totally destroyed.
