SYRIANS HERE HOLD BIG JOLLIFICATION 10-3-1918

Fifty Syrian Residents of Terre Haute gathered last night at the home of Mike Ellis, First and Wabash, and celebrated the fall of the capital of Syria, Damascus, to the victorious British army under Gen. Allenby. Ellis in addressing the group said: “This means the end of the terrible Turk, who has tried to ruin our nation for the past 600 years. Twenty-seven thousand Syrians are now serving under the Stars and Stripes and that many more will go for the cause of world democracy.” S. H. Malooley also addressed his countrymen.
