GENEVA, Nov. 26. (Hy the Asiociated Prcd) Lord Robert
Cecil, who i nctinp; as one of South Africa's delegates to the Leapic
of Nations assembly, tonight expressed the opinion to American
newspaper correspondents that the United States would he the best
nation to accept the mandate for Armenia. Tlie United States, he
added, probably would have more influence with Mustapha Kcmal
I'asha, (the Turkish nationalists leader who is conducting a cam
paign against the Armenians) than any other nation.
I-ord Robert said $.o.ooo,ouo would supply the necessary military
assistance to put Armenia on her feet.
"I have been advised by very r(mx! military opinion." he de
clared, "that a good deal could be done to save Armenia with the
1 xjMiiditurc of that am.iunt. We have apealcd to many states and
organizations but so far we have had nothing but suggestions."

The new selling prices are not m-iwi-ahle

have been asking aa high as It foe

Is one of satisfaction at the decision to

that the immediate result will lie to

The sentiment here seems to be that thi
liottom level of prices has been reach

building trade, the rehabilitation of th.
