LAUSANNE, Pec SO. (By the As
iociated Press.) M. Tchltcherin, the
Russian soviet foreign minister,
made an appeal for recognition of
the soviet federation today in a
tatement to the Associated Press.
"The soviet republic," he said,
"earnestly hopes that the begin
ning of the new year will bring us
into closer collaboration with the
American people for productive
work and for the opening of our
natural resources to mankind.
"Our most earnest desire is uni
versal naval disarmament, as well
as disarmament on land, peace and
productive work. The soviet repub
lic is strong enough to resist ag
gression, but we must regret that
the scheme which has prevailed at
Lausanne will compel us to arm and
fortify our eouth coast and will di
vert us from our fundamental aim
Memorandum Banded 'Oat.
The entire soviet delegation de
livered a New Year's sermon to the
powers, taking as a text "Russia's
sympathy for oppressed peoples."
M. Tchiteherin distributed to all the
delegations at Lausanne a memor
andum declaring that a solution of
the near east problem is possible
only by abandonment of the policy
of conquest and intervention to
ward Turkey. Happily, the Soviets
advent to power in Russia had
saved Turkey from total disinte
gration. Unhappily, however, at
Lausanne, according to the memor
andum, the great powers continuo
their old policy of domination and
expansion and seek to settle the
traits problem so that it can be
used as a basis of attack against
the Black sea countries.
The memorandum warmly takes
ides with Turkey in her struggle
for sovereign freedom and insists
that imperialistic nations must cease
to consider Moslems as inferiors.
Special Conference Urged.
In behalf of the Moscow govern
ment, M. Tchiteherin recommended
the calling of a special conference
to examine into the status of the
minorities of all countries, and de
clares that the only way to estab
lish peace in the valley of the
Danube and in the Balkans is the
formation of a federation by the
peoples of those regions, each state
retaining its autonomy.
Today's developments brought no
appreciable change in the delicate
position of the Lausanne confer
ence. Optimists found hope in the
fact that the Turks have agreed
to meet the British experts and dis
cuss the Mosul frontier and in the
announcement that further progress
had been made In the solution of
the straits problems. But it is gen
erally admitted that no change for
the better or worse can come until
