ISMET PASHA INSISTS ON EX
CHANGE OF GREEKS FOR
TURKISH DELEGATE BLAMES
POWERS FOR TROUBLES OF
Lausanne. Ismet Pasha, head of the
Turkish delegation, dashed the hopes
of the Near Eastern conference for a
speedy and satisfactory settlement for
the protection of minorities in Turkey
when, in an address here he insisted
upon an exchange of the Greek popu
lations in Anatolia for the Turks in
Macedonia. He demanded exclusion of
all foreign Interference in Turkey,
which, he said would protect the re
maining minorities, as the Turks had
always been able to get along with
other nationals when they kept out of
politics and were not stirred up by out
Ismet declared that Turkey would
not accept Lord Curzon's proposal to
have the League of Nations administer
the affairs of the minorities, as that
would mean that the" foreign powers
would continue their interference in
Turkish affairs and encourage the mi
norities to appeal to the League of Na
tions. This plan, lie asserted, would
result In the exploitation of minorities
for political ends under "the lying
cloak of humanltarism."
The Turkish chief delegate reviewed
the entire history of Turkey from the
time of the conquest of Constantinople.
The Turks, hes aid, had lived peaceful
ly with the Greeks and Armenians un
til 100 years ago, when the Russians
began agitating against the Moham
medans under the pretense that Russia
was the protector of Orthodox Chris
tians in Turkey.
He charged Russia with being re
sponsible for the attack Gladstone
made on Turkey in behalf of the Ar
menians and maintained that the so
called Turkish atrocities against Ar
menians frequently had been in the
nature of reprisals for pogroms per
petrated by the Armenians through en
couragement from Russia, which
wanted some excuse for Invading Turkey.
"The Armenians brought the mas
sacres on themselves," Ismet Pasha
declared. "They have abused Turkish
generosity and dabbled in politics."
According to Ismet, there now are
no minorities In Turkey which can
claim the right to belong to any other
nation, thus disposing of the Arme
nian claim for a national home In
Lord Curzon replied in a spirited
manner to Ismet, saying it was the
first time the conference had seen the
Turkish delegate as a historian, and
always Jiad thought of him before as
a soldier and a diplomat.
The British secretary for foreign
affairs said the conference was deal
ing with the affairs of peoples in the
greatest distress and must find a so
lution for the problem of the miser
able refugees, and without regard for
ancient history, and must frame a
treaty which would protect these un
happy people. In emphatic tones he
denounced Ismet's demand that there
be a forced exchange of Turkish and
Greek populations and declared that
the minorities must remain in both
