Lausanne, Dec. 10. (By The A. P.)
Ismet Pasha is not worried over the at
tempts of OeorRe Tchitcherin, the soviet
foreign minister, to turn Tnrkey away
from Europe and America and plunge
her into the arms of soviet Russia. He
refused to influence Turkish correspond
ents against sending to their home news
vaners full accounts of Tchitcherin's
strictures of yesterday that Turkey by
opening up the Dardanelles -was expos
ing both Turkey and Russia to future
destruction by the great powers.
Unmoved by the bolshevik blast, Is
met tranquilly went to Geneva today as
the guest of honor at a dinner arranged
by the Ottoman society.
A leading 1-urkish publicist, cabling
to Constantinople, introduced his narra
tive of Tchitcherin's warnings to Turkey
hy relating the story of the grand vizier,
who when in doubt as how to rule his
realm invariably decided upon a policy
tho reverse of that delired by Rus
sia. '"That grand vizier was rig!!-" declar
ed the Turkish correspondent, "uecause
Russia is our hereditary enemy. Tehlt-L-herin
prates about affinity and com
munity of interests between the Rus
sians and Turks but we are not forget
ting that there are today in Russian
Turkestan thirty million Turks, who, if
they dwelt formerly under the oppres
sion of czarism, are today ruled by an
Iron hand under the blight of bolshe
vism." The closing of the fourth week of the
conference has been marked by a dis
tinct disposition on- the part of Turks
to irecept occidental ideas and reject
Uusslan policies, particularly as regards
'.he straits problem. This was due in
t considerable measure .to the tact and
wisdom shown by Ambassador Child, II.
Barrere and Lord Curzon. who have
ried to make the Turkish leaders see
'.iiut they could trust the Occident.
The American delegation is keeping- in-
background,-carefully avoiding1 any
t tempt -to thrust American policies on
Kurope and restricting its efforts to
statements, of the position of fhu Ujjited
Pistes as subjects arise in which the
Inited States is justifiably interested.
