Armenia

ATTITUDE OF LEAGUE OF NATIONS

LONDON, April 26.

The council of the League of Nations has issued a memorandum explaining its attitude regarding Armenia. It says the League itself cannot take direct military and financial action. The best solution, which also the Armenians desire, is to find a mandatory Power, but such a mandatory will be hard to find unless the Allies give military and financial assurances, also an assurance regarding the Armenians access to the sea. The League council urges the Supreme Council to state if it is willing to advance funds, pending a meeting of the full assembly of the League; also what guarantees are obtainable as regards access to the sea, and the expulsion of Turkish troops.

AMERICAN ATTITUDE

WASHINGTON, April 27.

The State Department has indicated that it is impossible for the United States to accept any mandate over Armenia, owing to the present temper of Congress.
