SLAUGHTER OO MTlNUMp , ;
News has ben received by the
Armenian national delegation in
London that two thousand Armen
ian lcvilians were murdered In cold
blood during the recent attacks on
Marash and Aintab, in Asia Minor.
The Turks and Kurds have been sys
tematically slaughtering the Armen
ians ever since the armistice was
signed. The massacres will un
doubtedly continue until adequate
protection is furnished the remen-;
ant of this primitive Christian race.!
This protection can only be furnished
by the league of nations, and the
high council is waiting for the United
States senate to take final action on
the peace treaty and league coven
ant. Many American citizens have
set their faces against the idea of
this country's accepting a mandate
for America. We cannot, however,
desert them In their hour of peril,
and we should assist in working out
plans for the preservation of th
lives of the Armenian and the plac
ing of their government upon a sub
stantial foundation . They fought
well during the great war and de
serve freedom from the yoke of
Turkey. Long delay in going to the
rescue means the annihilation of
these Asiatic Christians.—Salt Lake
