holds more pleasant anticipation for me than my return to Turkey soon after the beginning of the year It will have been just five years since my last visit there It will be interesting to see what has happened in that time When I had completed that factfinding mission of 1952 with a visit to about a dozen countries ringing the Iron Curtain I had this one overall conviction Next to Britain and I even wondered whether I should make that one exception Turkey is our one most trustworthy ally On leaving France I had some definite misgivings about the will or the ability of her people to rise up to the stature reached by them under Joffre in 1914 and again under Foch in 1918 I won dered and I still wonder how firmly they would be on our side if the chips were down Theres no blinking the fact that the French folded up in 1940 under too little pretext when Hit ler swept down around the Mag inot Line which had given them a wholly false sense of security Sure there was an underground resistance but that was par ticipated in by a limited few Warned About Others Too To a lesser extent I had con cern about either the ability cr the determination of Italy Yugo slavia Greece Spain Britain and West Germany to stand up and slug it out if the Russian Bear tried to move in But never not even for a second did I have any anxiety about Turkeys behavior should there be an attack Even though the Turks are so close to that Russian Bear that they can al most literally feel his breath on their necks they entertain not the slightest fear of the animal Im not saying theyre not I observed in my re port They are that But they are not frightened They love life but they love their freedom even In the 30 years since Kemal Mustafa Pasha later to be giv en the designation of Ataturk meaning Father of All Turkey or something close to that took over the reins of government at Constantinople there had been a transformation in the Turkish moral at home and Turkeys status on the world scene unsur passed in the annals of history Man of the Century Tf you should ask Who is the outstanding personality of the century in which we live youd get quite a variety of answers If you asked enough persons you most assuredly would encounter these names Roosevelt Teddy and DEVASTATION AFTER FIRE Five buildings were entirely burned or partially gutted by fire Sunday eve ning at Lyle Minn At the extreme left is the Haug land Appliance Store which had a damaged air condi tioner but no fire damage Next to it is the former office of the Lyle Tribune a store room for antiques and a storage

store and the Legion Building were insured General Strike Call H 62 Aboard DC4 Lost in North Air Search Is Pressed Woodrow Wilson Churchill Hit ler Lenin Stalin Mussolini Clemenceau Foch Eisenhower and Chiang Kaishek You probably wouldnt get a single nomination for Kemal Pasha Ataturk and yet in a number of particulars hes the most remarkable one of the whole crowd What he did in a brief 15 years was little short of a miracle and no fooling When the amazing Ataturk took over as an almost unknown army colonel in 1923 Turkey was known and for good reason as The Sick Man of Europe The country was poor in resourc es and still is if the comparison is with the United States or even with the countries of Western Eu rope Her economy had been sapped by continuous warfare and invariably on the losing side The individual Turk was dejected of spirit He just didnt care whether school kept or not No Longer the Sick Man That understand was the Tur key of 1923 when Ataturk took over But it wasnt the Turkey of 1952 when I last visited there In fact the Turkey of that time was the foregoing description in complete reverse Turkey was no longer Europes Sick Though still poor in natural re sources she was putting what she had to maximum use And the spirit of the average Turk was at an alltime high For all of this or practically all of it Kemal Ataturk has been responsible He was a one man crusade and revolution all CONTINUED ON PAGE 2 VANCOUVER B Trans Canada Air Lines plane carrying 2 persons vanished during a vio ent windstorm over mountainous south central British Columbia
