Veteran 1 New York, Nov. 18 (By the Assoc! ated1 Press). Georges "Clemeneeau to day again set foot on America. V The war premier of France, who left this' country more than half a cen- '; tury ago as a young medical student, returned In ripe old age, with many years of stormy statesmanship be hind him, to win for his countrymen the sympathy of America. The Tiger came as a private citizen but to no . f potentate could have been extended a more stately welcome man wi af forded him when he whs taken from the steamship Paris in the harbor and landed at the historic Mattery wan. The Titrer found thousands of peo pie waiting for him on the tip of Man hattan island. There were cheer w-nen he stepped ashore and then, headed by the police department band, M. Clemeneeau and the committee which had gone down the bay to welcome him, Btarted up Broadway lor his ofli , cial-reception ,at.-city-hall. , - . . The aged statesman was carrying a Ted rose In one hand when he began his motor trip up the great canyon. Girls In office buildings leaned from windows and blew kisses to him. The :t Tiger replied by -.laving the rose in a eonrtly manner. "The welcoming committee, on arriv ing at quarantine aboard the munici pal steamer Macom, found the Tiger -V peering through a window on the ( promenade deck. Escorted to the grand salon by the , captain of the Paris, the committee was presented to M. Clemeneeau by J. J. Jusserand, French ambassador to the United States. Robert Woods Bliss, assistant secre tary of state, welcomed the former premier to America in behalf of Presi dent Harding and invited him to visit the president at Washington. Clem eneeau accepted, expressing his delight. "Growing; Younger Every Day." Complimented by the committee on the healthy appearance he presented, Mr. Clemeneeau replied lightly: "I am growing younger every day. In 50 years I think I'll be a baby." Robert Condon, a member of the national executive committee of the American Legion, then welcomed the former premier "as a man who more than any other exemplifies the spirit in which we carried on the war." "You're the man I like to see. It's the thoughta of your men that count." Making ready to leave the Paris, M. Clemeneeau called excitedly to his valet, AFIiert, who was going up to the dock with the baggasre, to be aure and see that it was landed safely. Led by Colonel E. M. House, a close personal friend, the distinguished Frenchman stepped gingerly aboard the Manhattan to cross to the Ma corn. At the moment Manhattan's siren loosed three tremendous blasts. The Tiger clapped his hands hurriedly over his ears and scrambled aboard the Maeora. Then tame a rush 'of photographers. "Oh, ii-n't there aomelody to kill these photgraphersl" cried the Tiger plaintively. "Is it not permissible in your country!" . But he posed. A liand aboard the Macom then struck up the Marseillea and M. (Ira enceau stood with bowed head oppo site Colonel House. Just about to drop in a seat, the mui in swung into the "Star Span gled Banner" and he rose apain. Then be waa led to the bow by the commit tee and sank into an easy chair. Looked for Statue of Liberty. The Tiper kept casting piercing glances from under his shaggy gray brow at the harbor oene. Soon he interrupted Ambassador Jusserand. who was chatting politics, to inquire or the whcrealiout of the Statue of Li!rty. M. Jusserand pointed it out throusrh the mist w ith the jucsting ob servation that the lady was somewhat obscured by prohibition. Before landinir the Tiper announced that he interded this afternoon to at tend the performance of Mephistoph- at the Metropolitan opera houe. .where he will deliver hi first lecture in America next Tuesday n;j:ht. I His chief purpose in attending the cpera will be to pet a line n the ar- j couotica of the Vonse.

Clemeneeau conversed in French. During an animated discus sion regarding Premier Mussolini of Italy, the Fascisti leader, the Tiger exclaimed: ' "Ah, there's a government." The Tiger seemed bewildered when he saw ,. the army of newspaper re porters, photographers and movie men, more than 5 strong, which had come down the harbor to greet him. He met a broadside of questions with the statement that he waa prepared to re spond with a certain number c yessea and equal number, of noes which the reporters could distribute in tfieir copy as they saw fit. Confetti and ticker tape rained on the Tiger as he moved up Broadway. At city hall, which he said he well re membered, he was received by Mayor Murray Hulbert, who bailed him as "the most distinguished citizen of the great Bister republic, France. ' George W. Wiekersham, introduced the tiger as one of the greatest 'citi zens in the world.! M. Clemeneeau, responding to , the welcome, said: i "For 50 years I have been mixed up with the most important political crises in France. I have seen my coun try invaded twice during my lifetime. I do not want -to see a third invasion before my ilfath. We will disperse our army wherrnt can be shown that we are Bafe from this invasion." ' He explained that he came on no mission and that his -v isit was person al. At first, he said, he vowed he would not come to America because he was too old. But when he heard this country criticized he decided to come, he said. "We were called militarist and impe rialistic," he said, "If there's a man who is not militaristic, it i I. M. Clemeneeau said that he read while in France an article by a great English critic criticizing France and America anddeelared that this made him resolve "to defend America against anv body." - He said that France did not know, what was going on in ' America and America did not know what waa going on in France and he wished to make the position of France clear, "as a free man, speaking to free men." From city hall, M. Clemeneeau mo tored up Lafayette street to Ninth, where he turned into Fifth avenue. proceeding up . town to the home of Charles Dana Gibson on East 73rd street, where he will stayo while in this city. He prepared to rest at the artist's . home . until - ha left., for . the opera this afternoon. : ITALIAN PREMIER GETS VOTE OF CONFIDENCE x . . . But Only After a Stormy Session of Italian Parliament, in Which He Showed Contempt of Op ponent. Rome, Nov, 18 (By the Associated Press). Benito Mussolini starts his career a Italian premier backed b$ a strong vote of confidence from parlia ment. - '. The Fascisti government was up held, 306 to 116, after a stormy ses sion of the chamber yesterday in which the socialists and other minority groups broke their sullen silence and hurled defiance and invective at the government bench, only to be dis missed by Mussolini! with contemptu ous remarks and waves of the hand. He had demanded obedience from the leputies, and the majority bowed to the inevitable. To a protest over the manner in which he had approached the chamber for its support, he replied curtly, "I treated the chamber the way it deserved to be treated." Despite the vole of vonfidence many of the deputies went home feel-' ing none too sure that the premier would 'not dissolve the chamber. So- ialists who voted against the govern ment were heard to axk: "How long is he going to stand for tin servitude of those men who would have -had him shot a month aiot" - Others, however, feel, that bv hold ing the present chamber in the hollow of his hand and flourishing the weap on of "dissolution' over its head, Mus solini can rule much more easily than with a Parliament having a solid Fas cisti majority. It u pointed nut that the authority to dissolve Parliament granted Musso lini by the king applies to the present body alone, and that he would prob ably not receive similar power with out a new chamber, as the king, like his predecessors, is jealous of thia roy al prerogative, which is only granted as a last resource. In any case it is regarded aa eer-1 tain that Mussolini will take no deci sion before attempting to obtain from this chamber an amendment modifying Italy'i electoral law, as well aa' au thority to enforce bis program of bu veaucrstir reform and ftnautHal re trenchment. To-night Mu-solmi starts for Switzerland, for a preliminary con ference with the French premier and British foreign secretary regarding th attitude to be adpoted by the allies at the forthcoming Lausanne peace con ference. n his way, the premier will stop at San Roore to confer with King Victor EmmanueL CEN.

SAYS BRITISH INTERFERING In the Internal Affairs of Turkey By Aiding Sultan KEMALISTS WERE WHOLLY OUTWITTED They Are Now Striving to Prevent Escape of Cabinet Constantinople, Nov. 18 (By the As sociated Press). The Turkish nation alists consider that Sultan Mohammed VI by hi flight has surr-mdered the caliphate, according to Rafet Pasha, Kemalist governor of Constantinople. "According to the Moslem law," he told the Associated 1'ress, "when the sultan leaves Turkish soil and enters Christian territory he wJaees himwlf under Christian protection and thereby loses the caliphate, ceasing to rewiin any authority over the .Moslems. Mohammed's departure on the iirlt ish dreadnought Malaya in the face of threatened trial for treason by the An gora government waa compared by Rafet Pasha to the flight of Damad Fcrid Pasha, former grand visier, and the other "members of the opposition whv bv their acts were compromised in the eyes of the whole Turkieh nation." "Great Britain's connivance in the eneane." he added, "is flagrant inter fcreuce in Turkey's internal affairs." Rafet was much agitated. He spent several hours following the escape in frantically telephoning Angora lor m structions and taking precautions against the flight of the members of the sultan a cabinet and other High wrsonaires wanted by the nationalist The British for some time had been aware of his anxiety and fear for his personal safety and were prepared to remove him when nav nam tno worn. They explained however, that the re quest for safe conduct must come from him, as they could not be placed in the false position of having kidnapped him. They also pointed out that he must go a reasonable distance from the pal ace, aa it was inexpedient to introduce British guards into the grounds be cause of the danger of conflict with the Kemalist soldiery there. The sultan asTeed to all of the conditions. The flight waa so carefully arranged that the nationalist officers and sol diers stationed in the palace grounds did not learn of it until shortly before the selamlik, or prayer ceremony, at noon in which the sultan waa to have participated. When the Associated Press correspondent visited the palace on Thursday the sultan made known through a member of his court his in tention to retain hia throne. The -sultan repeatedly told hit friends that he would not abdicate, and after hi reception of Rafet Pasha last week he seemed more, steadfast than ever in his determination to resist the efforts of the Kemalist to oust him. Later, it is said, his closest triend learned that threats had been made against his life, and prevailed upon him to reconsider his decision not to quit the capital. The Kcmalists to-day took measures to guard the famous palace contair.n'j the precious relics of the caliphate and the priceless gifts to the sultan and his predecessors from world monarch ainee the time of the prophet. On. all sides the pressing question to-day was as to what action the An gora government would take aa the re sult of the sultan's flight. Extremist Turks said the ut"fltion rreated might lead to the withdrawal of the nationalist delegation from the Lausanne conference and the inarch of a Kemalist army upon the carntnl. More temperate Moslems evprrssrd belief that the nationalist authorities would regard the flight as an unpleas ant and irritating incident, but one which none the less afforded a solution of the question of the sultan's fate. All were emphatic in voieine belief that the British participation in the escape of the caliph would provoke se vere protests from the national assem bly as constituting an unwarranted in terference with Turkish, internal af fairs.
