What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

ARMENIA LEFT FOR AMERICA Germans Warned to Carry Out Pledger and Summoned to Conference— Peace Resolution Framed for Senate—Troops Ready to Guard Mexican Border. By EDWARD W. PICKARD. It was easy to predict that the allied premiers would reach an amicable set- tlement of their - differences concern - Mg Turkey and the pressure to be put on Germany. That was what they did, and each of the ailed nations most interested seems fairly well sat- isfied with the results. As for the Vtlited States, It Is offered the man- date for Armenia. If it declines to ac- cept this great and expenaive responsi- bility, President Wilsoe is requested to determine the boundaries of the Armenian state, and its protection is to be arranged later. Fixing the lim- its of Armenia will be no small job, anti If Mr. Wilson undertakes it he may find his generous tendencies curbed by the strength of the Turkish nationalfsts. For instance, their lead- er, Mustaphe Kernel, is In possession of Erzerum. which Mr. Wilson has considered the capital of Armenia, and no one seems inclined to try to dis- possess him. The nationalists. it is said, will have representatives In Paris when the treaty is tietivered to the Turkish delegates. Supposhig that the British have not materially modified their imperialistic desires, they appear to have profited hugely by the Turkleh settlement. They are given possession or control Of' Mesdpotatttei,•Psiestine, the esti. Islets with the ports of Baku and Ba: turn, the Bagdad railway, and naval control of the Dardanelles, Also Tur- key is compelled to recognize the Brit- ish protectorate over Egypt, which in- sures sole rights to the Suez canal, }Weever, there has grown up In Eng- lend a strong feeling against further expansion of the empire and a recog- nition of the feet that some of its most important boundaries are weak. mei end thrown open by the acquisi- tion of Mesopotamia and other terri- tory In that part of the world. It is felt that the material benefits to be derived will not nearly compensate for the added burden on the British tax- payer, for certainly a strong military establishment will have to be main- tained permanently In. those regions.
