PIONEER PAPER OF ARIZONA Turks Adopt Pose SMAEF EEJOMDER ISSUED BY CURZON TO ffiSOTE OF ISMET AS TURK APOLOGIST (Associated Press Night "Wire) LAUSANNE, Dec. 12. Ismet Pasha, head of the Turkish delega' tion, dashed the hqpes of the near eastern conference for a speedy and satisfactory settlement for the pro tection or minorities in Turkey when, in an address at this afternoon's ses sion, he insisted upon an exchange of the Greek populations in Anatolia for the Turks in Macedonia. He de manded exclusion of (all foreign in terference in Turkey which he said would protect for the remaining minorities as the Turks had always been able to get along with other na tionals when they kept out of politics and were not stirred up by outside influences. Ismet declared that Turkey would! not accept Lord Curzon's proposal to have the League of Nations ad minister the affairs of the minorities, as that would mean that the foreign powers would continue their inter ference in Turkish affairs and, en courage the minorities to appeal to the League of Nations. The Turkish chief delegate review ed the entire history of Turkey from the time of the conquest of Constan tinople. The Turks, he said, had lived peacefully with the Greeks and Armenians until a hundred years ago, when the Russians began agitating against the Mohammedans under the pretense that Russia was the pro tector of orthodox Christians 'in Turkey. 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 had always thought of him be fore as a soldier and a diplomat. The British secretary said the con ference was . dealing with the affairs of peoples in the greatest distress and must find a solution for the problem of the miserable refugees and with out regard for ancient history, and must frame a treaty which would protect these unhappy people.
