Allies and Armenia


NEW YORK, Jan. 19.

A Washington message says it is understood that President Wilson is somewhat surprised at the apparent lessened interest of the Allies in Armenia following the mediation of the Bolsheviks, which is here believed not to have been in the best interests of either the Armenians or the Allies. The failure of the Allies to respond to President Wilson's requests for advice and assurances has also occasioned disappointment, and the feeling has grown here that the Allies have become indifferent concerning any efforts the President might make to save Armenia. It has been intimated that the Allies would be willing to sacrifice Armenia in order to arrive at an acceptable arrangement with Turkish Nationalists.
