THE LAUSANNE CONFERENCE
NEW TURKISH DEMAND
REMOVAL OF PATRIARCHATE

The Age, Melbourne, 19 December 1922.

          LAUSANNE, 17th December.
Among the problems engaging the atten-
tion of the Near East  conference  Turkish
insistence   upon   the   removal   of   the
patriarchate from  Constantinople  is  likely
to prove a thorny subject.
    Mr. Child  voiced America's objection to
the proposal.   He pointed  out  that  the
patriarchate  was  established  by  Turkey
herself, not  by a foreign  power,  and de-
clared that  the  United States  would op-
pose its removal.
   The Turks  contend that it is  absolutely
necessary to remove  the patriarchate and
curtail   the   temporal   privileges   of  the
clergy.
   M. Caclamanos  said  that  Greece could
not accept the proposal.
