TROUBLE AGAIN Thi time its with the Turkish em bassy in Washington And it all came about because I expresse the editorial view that killinc your political enemy isnt in good taste for a nation present ing itself to the world as a de mocracy Im in receipt of a letter from one Orhan Mizanoglu in the oi fice of the Turkish press at tache in which Turkey is identi fied as a true and loyal frienc of the United States o America That particula point of course wasnt even raised by me in my editorial But maybe I can present thi controversy most satisfactorily by recalling what I wrote in my editorial and then reproducing the letter which reached me from the assistant press attache in the Turkish embassy I began by pointing out in my editorial headed Ataturk Wouldnt Be Pleased With This that Turkeys bloodbath for those whose principal sin was losing a political fight came a a shock to all of us who expectec better things of that country Within the week I observed former Premier Adnan Men deres and two former cabine ministers have been executed Death sentences for former President Celal Bayar and 11 other former officials have been commuted to life imprison ment But I added in comment ing on

being put in re verse I have read your editorial concerning Turkey Mr Miza noglu led off in his polite com munication and I regretfully observed doubt and a lack of trust relating to the free elec tions in Turkey a country which has always remained a true and loyal friend of the United States of America It is with this thought in mind that I think it necessary to pro vide you with the following fac tual information he added It should be borne in mind that Turkey irrespective of any changes that might occur in its Internal order such as the over throw of a government has demonstrated whenever the oc casion presented itself that it is a staunch member of the West ern Allies A study of Turkeys attitude vis a vis recent world events as well as the trends of internal policies in Turkey should leave no doubt in this respect Mr Mizanoglu emphasized In fast he added the Turkish people will go to the polls on Oct 15 1961 and cast their votes to determine which ilatc of candidates from among
