Tardteu Scores Blunders of
Crisis in Near East Beclared
Only Begun, in Atmosphere
of Mutual Suspicion.

PARIS, Sept. 30. (Special Cable-.)
The two great powers which here,
as elsewhere, could have remained
masters of the situation, working?
together, have, by misunderstand
ings and rivalries, provoked and
multiplied conflicts which today are
giving much trouble In calming. In
consequence the Greek setbacks are
interpreted in France as English
difficulties and are commented on
with stupid enthusiasm, while Poin
care's refusal to participate in the
defense of the Dardanelles, which is
of general world interest, is in
terpreted in London as a failure to
accept entente obligations.
Therefore the eastern crisis, which
perhaps is only beginning, will de
velop in the worst possible atmos
phere, namely, mutual suspicion.
France's state of mind is extremely
curious. The press campaigns have
had a strange effect on many of my
fellow citizens. We have Catholic
papers rejoicing over Kemalist vic
tories. We see Poincare, who a year
ago denounced the Angora agree
ment, going further in a few hour3
than Briand did in a year. We see
those who commonly complain that
France always is bowing to Britain
now rejoicing because we vacated
Chanak, a place which we cannot
Lloyd George Blamed.
All this is very puzzling. Finally,
I must remark that Lloyd George's
absurd policy of arousing Greek am
bitions is largely responaible for
this state of mind.
Despite the official jubilation over
the Franco-Italian-British joint in
vitation to Kemal, the Turkish
crisis la far from being over. The
Turks have twice invaded the neu
tral zones since the invitation was
extended. The presumptuous Kemal
press declares unacceptable the pro
posals of the powers. Kemal him
self holds back, and Poincare's ne
gotiator, Franklin Bouillon, being
more pro-Kemal than Kemal him
self, can scarcely be .considered the
man to moderate the Turkish commander-in-chief.

Anybody reading the Paris papers
might think from their historical
Turcophilism that France considered
the Turkish problem settled. This
is unt rue. The details filtering
through of how the Turks pillaged
and burned Smyrna are making a
' great impression and the visible con
nivance of Moscow with Angora is

Poincare, despite his unexpected
diplomatic support of -Kemal, must
take account of these legitimate ap
prehensions. Only a week after ne
evacuated Chanak. therefore caus
ing enormous difficulties between
France and Kngland, he asks the
chamber's finance committee . to
authorize a loan of 300.000,000
francs to Ftoumania, the Poles and
the Czechs to complete armament
against the possibilities of Turkish
re-entry into Europe, and the Rus
sian menace which might require
their military intervention. These
facts contradict the epecious optim
ism of the official newspapers.
For two years France and Eng
land have been committing unpar
donable errors in the opposite direc

urging Constantine to rash -extremes
resulting in his destruction,
and France signing the separate ac

young doctor, he landed in New

old "Tiger" stays these two years
were among the happiest of his long
life- The reading public did not
patronize the library much in those
days, Clemenceau eaid. Therefore he
was able to seclude himself among
the books and spend most of his
time reading the best philosophers
"There my mind acquired what it
lacked and my intellect completed
Its formation," he said recently.
It was after this that he became
professor of French in a school for
young women at Stamford, Conn. A

to accompany the girls on their rides
across the country. It was- thus that

William Bird Declares That if
Profits Had Xot Been Sought
Crisis Would Not Exist.
BY WILLIAM BIRD.
(Cot-yright. 1922. by Tha Oreg-onian.)
PARIS, Sept. 30. (Special Cable.)
Thirteen months ago, reporting
the meeting of the supreme council
here in Paris, the writer stressed
the resolution deploring the Turco
Greek war, but deciding not to for
bid private firms in the allied coun
tries supplying arms to the bellig
erents. This hypocritical act started
the wind from which the present
oriental whirlwind has developed.
Had the allies then treated Tur
key and Greece as the United States
often treated Mexico, laying an em
bargo on arms, peace would have
been easily possible on terms which
must have proved advantageous to
Why was it not done? Tremen
dous pressure had been brought on
Lloyd George to take this bold stand
as the only feasible and effective
means to peace. But British labor,
which has staged many blustering
peace demonstrations and issued
numerous hollow ultimatums to the
premier against war, was per
suaded by the facile Lloyd George
that oriental peace through such an
embargo could only result in fur
In other words, labor was ready,
as was capital, to take its share of
the war profits. Thus, obviously,
the? world's economic forces still
are far from re-establishing them
selves on a peace basis. Without
the waste of war Industry seems
unable to function.
What is more significant still Is
that the decision of the supreme
council on this subject was prac
tically its latest utterance given
with its last breath. The council
since has disappeared and the sol
idarity of the allies has been dis
persed. Now in place of encourag
ing profitable wars in common, they
plan to encourage them separately,
which inevitably means opposition
to each other.
In this particular case the little
war got too big for them, so they
are now frantically seeking each
other's aid in stopping it before it
spreads to the Balkans and thence
to all Europe.
Another Conference Billed.
Another general conference on
near-eastern peace is about to open
under the same management as the
last. Lloyd George, who wrote the
treaty of Sevres and then wrecked
It, apparently will be entrusted with
writing another. One would think
such things ought to be impossible
at least until the day when the man
caught red-handed at arson is ap
pointed chief of the fire department.
Whatever peace., is made at this
time can only be a truce. A def
inite settlement of the problems af
fecting the near east is impossible
without consulting Russia, the prin
cipal power directly interested.

(Special.) The president of the

movement which will educate the
public In protective measures

malady which is destroying more
Americans annually than were

The destruction that cancer has
been "working upon life in the Unit

been so alarming that the American
Society for the Control of Cancer
has determined upon a nation-wide
campaign to curb its ravages.
The society has determined it to
be imperative that the people of the
United States be awakened to the
scourge just as they have been

place in the week of November 1!

There are 100,000 persons in the
United States now afflicted with

sands of dollars are wasted annual

agents of the society assert, basing
their statement on medical statis

The American Society for the
Control of Cancer does not believe
nor assert that cancer la always
curable, but it does hold that it
may be cured in many Instances and
that in practically all cases much
can be gained by meeting the dis
ease in its lnciplency Instead of de
laying as is so often done. The so
ciety's aim is to tear away the veil
of mystery which surrounds cancer
in the public eye and to tell the
actual truth about it.
AH over the country men who
have spent their lives In cancer re
search will be in charge of localized
campaigns and will disseminate in
formation by means of lectures,
personal work and newspaper pub
licity. The assertions that cancer Is not
a constitutional nor a blond disease
and that it involves no hereditary
taint nor should there be any
thought of disgrace attached to it
will be stressed in this campaign.
Men and women all over the coun
try will be taught that certain defi
nite symptoms precede every can
cer and these warnings should be
heeded at once.
Scientific papers dealing with the
work thus far accomplished in try
ing to find the cause of cancer will
be given to the public. Despite the
fart that, up to this time. Its u!l
mate origin is unknown, the public
will be asked not to lose hope, but
to believe that science will In the
end find this cause. The most emi
nent surgeons and practitioners
and specialists in the United Ftates
will participate In the drive. Like
wise the farts relating to the cures
ot cancer will be published.
Dr. Howard Canning Taylor, vice
president of the society, asserts that
cancer is curable If taken early and
properly treated. Dr. Will J. Mayo
declares cancer curable If operated
upon before adjacent glands are In
volved. Both these men. with
hundreds of others of like reputa
tion, will participate In the drive.
According to the Metropolitan
Life Insurance company the death
rate from cancer was hlaher In

There was a drop In the rate during
