point of view regarding Turkey and
Armenians In agreement with that of
President Wilson as to the desirability
of the largest possible Armenian state
and the expulsion of the Turks from
Constantinople. The question Is raised,
however, as to how these ends can be
achieved without the force necessary
to deal with the trouble certain to re
sult among the Mussulman population.
(President Wilson's note on the
Turkish question was delivered to
Premier Millerand by Ambassador
Wallace during the session of the eoun
ell of ambassadors In Paris yesterday.)
It would require a force of several
hundred thousnnd men to back up a
decision to eject the Turks entirely
from Europe, a high official said.
The establishment of an Armenian
state of large dimensions also would
Involve the necessity of a military
force to protect it, as in a great por
tion of the new state the Armenians
would be In the minority and exposed
to the hatred of their enemies'. This
task, it was declared at the foreign of
fice, always had been considered the
great humanitarian task for President
Wilson to perform. The question was,
it was added, whether he was ready to
furnish the required force.

Albany, N. Y., Mar. 80. Branding the socialist party as "an
organization composed exclusively of perpetual traitors," a ma

in a report transmitted to the lower house of the legislature today,
recommended the expulsion of the five socialist assemblymen.
August Claessens, Charles olomon, Louis Waldman, Samuel Orr

Mr. Adler, who on the first day of
the session introduced the resolution
demanding the suspension of the so
