To know your past, is to know yourself.

The thorny question of the resettlement of the Assyrian and Armenian refugees from the Urmia region is becoming urgent. It is estimated that about 2,000 stayed on under the Turks, but 13,000 are still in Mesopotamia, 5,000 at Hamadan and Kasvin, while 1,000 have already arrived at Tabriz and are filtering back to their homes. Firm measures are necessary to regulate the restitution of property and to repress strife. The Kurdish chief Simko heads a movement to prevent their return. The Jungalis of Gilan still refuse submission to the Government, despite patient negotiations, and the situation has reached the point where sterner measures may be necessary to restore the allegiance of that province. Three noted brigands, Rejebali, Jafarkuli, and Rezajuzdani, are still marauding in the Isfahan and Yezd provinces, but the Bakhtiap Governor of Isfahan has given an undertaking to end their activities at an early date.
