(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

Henry Morgenthau, former ambassador to Turkey, was welcomed on his arrival here on the Twentieth Century by a delegation or prominent Greeks of Chicago, whose guest he will be tonight at a banquet in the Hotel Sherman, under the auspices of the Near East Relief.

Mr. Morgenthau came here as a guest of the United Greek Societies of Chicago.

Peter S. Lambros, publisher of the Greek Star of Chicago, was head of the delegation which met Mr. Morgenthau at the station on his arrival.

Henry Morgenthau directed the repatriation of a million and a half refugees from Turkey who are now settled in Greece.
