BEAT ALLIES, Mustapa Kemal Ranks Among War Chiefs of World. Dramatic Scenes Around Parley Table Revealed. BY ACHMKD ABDI LAH and I<KO WW I. This Is the first story alxtut Mustapha Kemal Pasha. the man who has beaten the tireek army ami deued the concert of Kurojwan fevers. Capt. Achmed Abdullah is- the well known novelist and playwright, knows far eastern affairs from long service nun in*- im.i v. _ with the Turkish army in rjte | Balkan war, whore he attained the rank of pasha. He is an Afghan, of mixed Arab and Tartar blood, formerly a British subject, but now in the process of becoming an American citisen. An Oxford graduate, the author of several well known hooks and a contributor to a number of American magazines. He is well equipped to put Rental's striking personality before the American people. l^eo Anavi, a native of Berlut In Syria, is the son of Ijeou Anavi who started the silk industry in Syria, and the grandson of a high official in the Turflish army. He saw service in Rumania with the Turkish contingent, also in tireece: and later on was sent by the Turks to join first rlie British navy, seeing service in the Red sea snd the Mediterranean, and then the British land forces in Mesopotamia, as an intelligence officer for Turkish headquarters. THAT night about four months ago at Angora, the capital of Mustapha Kemal Pasha's provisional, war-born government, the atmosphere was surcharged with a dramatic, slightly nervous undercurrent. For things were not going well with Turkey. It had fought and lo9t a great war. It lay mutilated and bleeding. The world at large was beginning to forgive and forget Germany's and Austria's sins, but there was no forgiving nor forgetting for Turkey. The world at large had ceased to talk about Belgian atrocities. but was still talking about Armenian atrocities. Kismet. fate, seemed against the Moslem. Whereever you looked, from western China to the hills of Morocco, the crescent was humbled in the dust before the cross. There was France in Syria, Great Britain in Mesoptamia. Italy in Tripoli. There were soldiers of all the allied nations sporting their motley tunics in the ancient, quiet streets of Constantinople. There was no money, no food, no credit, no hope, no future. Reported Enslaving Moslem. And now the hereditary foe, the Greek, with a pro-German king, had for some mysterious reason of European diplomacy been appointed Europe's delegate in Asia Minor. The Greek was in control of Smyrna where, to believe the stories told by Mustapha Kemal Pasha's spies, to believe furthermore MM. Pierre Loti and Claude Farrere and many other impartial French observers?he was enslaving and massacring the Moslem and Jewish minorities, unchecked by European statesmen and European public opinion; the Greek was being furnished an abundance of cash and cannon by the British; the Greek was advancing into the interior of Acio onW mn T-C.V.O 1 i?o- hie trn.m. to conquer first Angora and then Constantinople; the Greek had at his beck and call all the propagandists, sincere as well as mercernary, and therefore all the sympathies of the Occident. The Greek seemed sure to win. The Greek said so himself, loudly and frequently. Thus ran the gossip, the shivery rumors and babblings in Angora's bazaars and market places; and yet the dinner party that same night at Mustapha Kemal Pasha's residence was very gay and very cosmopolitan. Of Spanish-Jewish Descent. There was the pasha himself, tall, till young, good looking, narrow hipped, wide shouldered, with gray, rather sad eyes that spoke eloquently of his Spanish-Jewish ancestry, for Kemal, like Enver Pasha, though an orthodox Moslem, is descended from those noble Spanish-Jewish families that, given by Christianity the tolerant choice between death, conversion and exile, found asylum and happiness in the sultan's domains?and with strong, high-veined hands, broad and flat across the wrist; the hands of an artist, a dreamer, yet, too, those of a doer, a man who knows how to clout his dreamy into facts, clearly, constructively, at times ruthlessly. At Mustapha Kemal Pasha's right sat a very great British general who had fought the Turks in the world war. had hf-pn hf?af#?n and rantiired by them, and had wound up by becoming their stout champion. Gen. Townsend, the hero, although vanquished. of Kuet-el-Amara. There were, side by side with Turkish officers of many races, Osmanlis and Kurds and Albanians and Druses and Jews and a sprinkling of Syrian Christians, in their somber, black uniforms; M. Franklin-Bouillon of the French commission, whb has forgotten more about the near east than most people will ever learn; Herr von Berg and his colleagues of the German mission; a brace of unclassified. tweed-clad Americans, and a number of soviet officers and officials. all suave, well dressed and remarkable linguists, led by M. Karakhan. There was finally an Indian Moslem, a gentleman of ancient and noble lineage, whc had given up high rank in the British-Indian army and high honors conferred upon him by the King-Emperor George V, because he thought that Islam was in danger, that Christianity had decided to destroy the Moslem utterly, that it was time for Jehad, holy war.

In obedience to the koran. does not touch fermented spirits. But the music was excellent. It was classic European music, played by a rather nostalgic Viennese orchestra, living reminders of the world war's stupendous Odyssey, since Mustapha Kemal Pasha brought back fro.m his years in Berlin, where lfe 1 studied at the Imperial German War School after his graduation from the Turkish War College, the Lycee Imperial Ottoman, a thorough admiration and appreciation of European music. It is perhaps significant that Wagner is his favorite composer, and after Wagner, Debussy. The conversation among that cosmopitan crowd was mostly of war, past, future and present, and of the coilings and recoilings of international politics. It was goodhumored. even humorous, except for an occasional remark, sardonic, pointed, gall-bitter; that dropped trom the Indian Moslem's thin, ascetic lips. It was the latter who. when asked by one of the unclassified Americans why islam mistrusted the Occident and why the Moslems would not subscribe to the treaties of Versailles and Sevres and rely on Europe's fair mind and fair will, replied very brusquely in his native Behdrt language: "Gibar rakhe mans ke thati?would you keep meat on trust with a jackal"" Fills Embarrassing Place. Silence followed t;he remark; embarrassment: an epidemic of uncomfortable coughing; a shuffling of uneasy feet. Then Mustapa Kemal Pasha rose and walked over to the Indian. "What is the matter, Syyed?" he demanded. "What has happened which cannot be remedied?with patience and faith?" "The Greek " "He talks too much? He threatpns?" "Yes'." "Don t you mind!" smiled Mustapha Kemal Pasba. "The little doge bark ?and yet my carkvan passes!" "Indeed!" chimed In Noury Bey, a young captain of horse. "The little, little jackal howls?but will my old buffalo die?" iaicber Saves Situation. "By Allah and Allah!" added Kemal Pasha, winding up the pleasant round of oriental metaphors. I'The drum which booms most loudly Is filled with wind!" Came loud laughter, the Europeans vying with the Turks, while the waiters cleared away the salad plates, and while Gen. Towneend, winking at Franklin-Bouillon, who was in the secret, rose and said to his host that he adored thfe Turkish cuisine? "all expept the desserts?tOo stincky. old man! So 1 have taken the liberty of bringing a dessert of my own!" The general called for his Indian servant, who appeared, Carrying an enormous, dome-shaped sponge cake, plnk-froeted, and crowned by the figure of a Greek god of victory made of sugar. Again there was silence. The Europeans were not quite sure how Mustapha Kemal Pasha would take the joke. The latter stared at the sugary Greek god with his sad. grayeyes. Then, very suddenly, he smiled, thinly, ironically. He turned to hla body servant with a few whispered words. The man salaamed, left and returned shortly afterward with his master's sword. Decapitates Sagar God. Kemal Pasha drew it. He balanced the splendid old Ayab blade for a second or two so that the lights mirrored in the polished, blue steel like creesets of ill omen. Then, all at once, he swished the blade through' the air, and neatly decapitated the sugary Greek god of victory. "This." he said In A high, clear voice, 'Ms what I shall do to the Greeks before winter sets In!" He did it. He succeeded. And In his very success Is the story, historical and psychological, less of him. self than of all Turkey, of all Islam, of the Moslims' extraordinary resiliency and power of recuperation. It explains why Turkey, the sick man of Europe, has weathered the storms of the past, as he will Those of the future. The answer to this riddle is of especial interest to Amertcans. For it is contained in the one word "democracy"?a democracy, of course, which has an oriental sting to its taiL ; Birth sad Wealth Nethla*. For ever since Othman. the Tartar chief from Klioarassan, swept out of central Asia to conquer and to hold the richest provinces of the globe, the ruling caliphs of Turkey, like, Indeed, that he adored the Turkish cuisine? all Moslem dynasties, have maintained unbroken the principle that birth and wealth count for nothing, and that strength and ability are the only qualifications for the service of the state.

But In Turkey the reality of It is more salient and. being a wonderful attraction to the picked men of inferior races who In Amer-' lea and in England would be barred from high service through social or racial prejudice, it has provided the caliphs of the Ottoman clan with an endless supply of men of genius and ability. The history of the grand viziers and the great pashas of Turkey is the history of men who. unhampered by the obstacles of "birth, cultivation or social position, have risen by sheer force of ability?In war and in peace. Take, again, Mustapha Kemal Pasha. , Born la the Slams. He is not ^ven of Ostpanli blood.

He works steadily, persistently, rises by sheer force of abllity to a captaincy In the infantry, trans icra 10 me ariinery, men iu me smu. He uses a year's furlough to study at the Turkish War College. passes a brilliant examination and is sent to the Borlin Kriegs-Schule. The first Balkan war sees him a major. Turkish defeat and peace finds him a slightly embittered, slightly disappointed man. on the point of quitting his chosen vocation. But he is a patriot. He rceonsiders. He studies the campaigns of the world's great generals: Caesar. Tamerlane, Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden. Napoleon. Wellington, Frederick the Great, Moltke, Grant and Lee. At the outbreak of the world war he is frankly pro-ally. But Turkey declares for Germany and. like any other soldier, ne obeys orders. He fights for his couiTtfy. He is in command at Gallipoli and victoriously repels the British troops there, sending them back helter-skelter to their ships. It seems that he is the man of the hour. But the German general staff, remembering his former pro-ally leanirigs. becomes nervous, fears that his military success might make of him an important political factor and induces Enver Pasha, the commander-in-chief, to send him to Anatolia in an unimportant training position as a major general. He Obeys Orders. He does not complain: does not try to pull wires in Constantinople. He j obeys orders, goes to Anatolia and j trains soldiers. With great care, with tact and kindliness, yet with , steely discipline, he fashions an army out of bearded, gray-haired peasants | and their beardless, sixteen-year-old j grandsons and sends them into bat- 1 tie to capture Gen. Townsend and his ten thousand at Kut-el-Amara. to Iceep Great Britain's subsequent advance at bay for many weary months, to delay the British conquest of Pal- ; estine until his army had no munitions left, no airplanes, no medicine, not as much as a spare bandage or a j pair of shoes, while all the world was pouring supplies into the British war coffers. Came defeat. Deace. honplAcanAss despair; and all Europe flopping about the mutilated Ottoman corpse like vultures to the reek of carrion. The Sick Man of Europe was dead. There was no doubt of it. The unspeakable Turk had spoken his last word. Very soon the Greeks would celebrate high mass in the mosque of Santa Sophia of Constantinople. Kyrie Eleison! A Cloud on Horizon. Then, almost overnight, a cloud on the near eastern horizon, no bigger than a hand's breadth; a faint rumor; a thin, anaemic trickling of news out of Asia Minor; a name mentioned by occasional, globe-trotting newspaper correspondents. _ Mustapha Kemal Fasha. It seemed that he was a patriot. It seemefl that he was speaking of defying Greece and Greece's British backers. It seemed that he mentioned war and a determination to carry on and succeed. And the world laughed. It was a delicious, international jest. It was the very cream of the Jest. Fight? And how was he going to flght, since he had no army, no money, no munitions, no ships? The world forgot that he had three nnallf ion qn !* <->*? will ? ' - -* ?? ..vu ???" ouutceu, it tremendous cleanliness of purpose, ajjd patriotism. The world forgot that he had yet a fourth quality? an overwhelming, orthodox, almost childlike faith in his God! Bitterness In Soul. Too, there was In his soul a certain bitterness to sharpen and poison the dagger of his resolution. Let us put it in his own words; words which he used at that time to an English friend of his: "You have never had a decent word for Turkey. You have always lied abbut us, and believed your own lies. Let me point out Just one instance: The Young Turk revolution, when we progressives pulled Abdul Hamld's teeth. You. the apostles of freedom and constitutional government and half a dozen other assorted fetishes, what was your attitude then? You allowed Austria, your trusted steward of other people's property since the Berlin congress of thieves, to steal this property, belonging to. Turkey, the fertile provinces of Bosnia and Herzegovina. You looked on calmly while the Bulgar mountebank annexed Turkish territory in time of peace. You passed resolutions, full of blatant hyprocrisies and lies, but you never raised a finger in our behalf, in behalf of that Justice and humanity which you proudly claim as your birthright. You united in your endeavors to establish an Independent and constitutionally governed Rumania, a free Serbia, a modern Greece and Bulgaria, and. more recently, an autonomous Macedonia, under the pretext that Turkey, being controlled with an iron rod by a despotic sultan and an intolerably exalted sheykhul-lslam, was not fit to govern Christion races. But you obstructed Moslim Turkey's efforts to introduce and enforce the very principles of liberty and popular government which in former years you had been advocating as a sine qua non in the administration of your Christian proteges. We have suffered long enough a series of deliberate moral Insults and material injuries at the hands of selfish, canting, lying Europe, and We are still capable of tremendous energies when Islam is In danger. We are going to fight. How?" How Did Ireland Fight? Kemal Pasha smiled. "My friends," he added, "how did Ireland fight? With tanks and airplanes? No, no! Mostly with patriotism! And we Turks are patriots. Quarrelsome, are we? No more than the Irish. We simply wish to be left alone in our own house. Atrocities? Assassinations of minorities, racial or religious? Why, my dear sir, the proof of the pudding is In the eating. The Christians are still numerically I In the majority In Turkey. On the other hand, where are the Arabs and 1 Jews of Spain? Where are the Indians of the two Americas? Where are the South Sea Islanders?" Now, two years after this conversation, he. was the host at his Angora residence.

NO en TEARS FOR CONSTANTINE Follows Ex-Kaiser Into Retirement and Discredit, View of Press. NO SURPRISE TO PARIS Turks Believed to Begard Athens Events as Effort to Save Thrace. By the Associated Press. LONDON, September 28.?The second dethronement of Constantine of Greece brings no tears here, as he has no friends among the British public, owing to his reputed German sympathies during the world war. His exit only provokes a fresh series of the caricatures with which he has been constantly ridiculed whenever he was conspicious in the news. "A paltry personage vanisnes rrom the stage, following Wilhelm Hohenzollern into obscurity and total discredit," summarized the general press opinion. Grave Trouble Sees. If the Greek revolution is directed toward enforcing the retention of eastern Thrace, as some reports say, grave trouble has evidently been added to the allies* problem, editorial writers say. Meanwhile it appears as though the British warning to the Turkish nationalists to keep out of the neutral zone of the Dardanelles is becoming, if it' has not already beconfle, a dead letter. Date dispatches from Constantinople record further extension of the Kemalist invasion of the zone, suggesting growing contempt for the British veto and that the movement is approaching when the veto must b6 withdrawn absolutely or be enforced by war. Hamid Bey's threat to Brig, Gen. Harington, that if the Jfcritish continue to fortify points within the zone they risk attack by the Kemalists. further indicates that the Turks are far from regarding the British warning. How far Mustapha Kemal Pasha himself is responsible for these latest developments does not appear. SITUATION STILL CONTUSING. French Look to Bouillon to Smooth Out Complexities. By the Awocltted Pre,,. PARIS. September 28.?The abdication of King Constantlne of Greece has caused no surprise, but some apprehension, in the French political world, f<y whatever may be the de velopment 01 tne insurrectional movement In Greece it is bound to complicate still further the already serious situation in the near east. The Turks, it is felt sure, regard events at Athens as a supreme effort on the part of Greece to retrieve the situation by the return of Venlzelos and the resumption of the Greek offensive In Thrace. It is even announced from Adana that the Kemalists are about to take steps to safeguard the Mussulmans in Thrace during the insurrection. All of which furnishes fresh reasons for nationalist agitation. Kemal Agrees to Walt. Much is hoped for from the counsel of prudence and moderation to be extended by M. Franklin-Bouillon, who is due to arrive at Smyrna tpmorrow. Kemal Pasha, the nationalist leader, is understood to have announced that he will take no decisive steps until he has heard M. FranklinBouillon's views. Neither the abdication of Constantinople nor the return of Venlzek>s can. It Is maintained here, modify the decision of the allies as set forth in the resolution In which they promised Thrace to the Turks in the interests of peace, and not as a reprisal against the king. The Greek insurrection. It is asserted here in official circles, does not Justify and cannot bring about any change in the policy solemnly formulated by the three great powers in respect to Turkey, bur it is essential that Turkey should not compromise the position by taking military measures on the European shore of the straits. Such a mistake in tactics, it is held, would be bound to have a serious effect on the course of the negotiations.

"Today regrettable misfortunes have led our country into a critical situation, but Greece, as in so many other instances in the course of her centuries' long history, will again overcome her difficulties and will continue on her glorious and brilliant path, provided she faces the danger with a united front and is assisted by her powerful friends.

THRACE IS BATTLEFIELD Turks, Less Efficient Than Despised Christians, Poor in Industry. The Maritza river, which has, within the last week, come to the front In the day's news as the limit of European territory the allied powers are willing to give the victorious Turks, is described as Turkey's "fifty-fourforty or fight" in a bulletin issued today by the National Geographic Society. "The Maritza river is, like the Rhine, between France and Germany, a Rvmhnl and a bona of contention among Bulgar, Greek and Turk," the society says. "Each of these three peoples has claimed the Maritza valley as belonging to it on ethnic grounds, and such is the racial mixup in Thrace and the portion of Macedonia which adjoins it that each has at least some excuse for its claims. Thrace has for five hundred years been in the anomalous condition of being Turkish territory, yet more 1 Christian than Mohammedan, more alien than Turk. , More Industrious Than Moslems.

Area of Dreary Fiaiao. "Eastern Thrace between the straits and the Maritza river is ot little value agriculturally. It is an unattractive, dreary, monotonous plain, with here and there swampy depressions. Large areas of the territory are untilled and in summer they give the country the appearance of a desert. Furious fighting, with little quarter, raged over this region during the Balkan war of 1912-13, as Bulgar and Turkish arms were alternately successful. Turkish villages were destroyed first, and soon after Bulgarian villages suffered a similar fate. When the Bulgarians finally controlled the region many Turks, resigned to fate, trekked to Asia MinoF, and under the Greek control of the past few years that movement has continued. As a result the Thrace of today is even more strikingly noitTurkish than in the past." WtM* Phone M. 941 / ; -w Flof 1M * I'U V NSTA Is your house e< lights?
