His Cablegram to the
'\ V. Herald' Says Greece
Would Pacify Orient.
Treaty of Sevres Is Basis of]
Carrying Out Plans for \
Asia Minor Peace.
High Regard for Civilization
Behind Action After Pa

Special Cable to Tub New i ork Hbjaid.
Cupuriplit, 1021, bu Tub New Yobk Hrauin.
Athens, March 29, 1921.
To the Editor of The New York Herald:
In replying to your cable despatch |
the King of Greece is desirous that j
America should know his reason for |
calling the three Greek classes?those
of 1913, 1914 a?nd 1915?to the colors
on March 20 and understand the poli- |
eics of the Greek Government regard
ing Asia Minor.
The King, in his message to the
Greek people on March 19, explained
the Greek efforts to pacify the Orient
within the limits established by the
Treaty of Sevres and in accord with
international authority but Ui the fare
of the fact that the Anatolian (Turk
ish Nationalist) organizations showed
constant resistance against these ef
forts. j
In perpetuating this abnormal and )
dangerous situation, these Anatolian or- j
ganizations resorted to force to break
the decisions imperiously imposed by a
high consideration of civilization and by |
repeated sacrifices on the part of Greece,
?which saw for so long a time her in- I
alienable national rights violated while
waiting to see peace consolidated with
out further effusion of blood.
We anticipated a new attempt to
overturn the status established by the
Treaty of Sevres, as revealed by the
movement of Turkish troops and con
centrations on our front In Asia Minor.
Therefore it was necessary to reen-1
force our troops in order to protect the
Christian populations which are exposed
to these (Turkish) brutalities and to |
add these reenforcements to our army
whose duty it is to impose peace in i
Asia Minor.
(Signed). Constantxne. King.

JiONOON, March 29.?The Greeks have
occupied Ada Bazar, In the Ismkl region
of Asia Minor, according to a despatch
to the Kxchange Telegraph from Athens.
There is reason to believe, says a Con
stantinople despatch to the London
Timrs, that the Turkish Nationalist
command has selected a line of defence
running approximately from Kastamuni
southward to Angora, where the main
Turkish forces arc concentrating.
Gen. Gouraud, commander of the
French army In the East, who arrived
at Constantinople yesterday, made a
statement to the press in which, accord
ing to a London Times despatch from
Constantinople, he warns the Turks that
France's sympathy Is subordinated to
her nlliance with the British, "sealed by
blood on the field of battle."
He points out the fact that an agree
ment which recently was concluded
between the Nationalists and the Rus
sian Boltthevlkl might interfere with ful
filment of the Franco-Turk agreement,
which would secure great advantages
to Turkey. But, he says, if the Turks ;
Insisted on fighting, soldiers who had un
flinchingly resisted the most formidable
enemy In the world for four years could ,
easily capture a dozen AIntabs.

The attitude of this Government is
shrouded In even more mystery than Is
the mission of the French envoy. The
purpose of the reserve exercised is not
disguised, for It leaves this Government
wide latitude of judgment and decision.
First of all It is expected that the
Government of the United States will
make clear that it expects respect for
j its l ights growing out of the war. While
