By MOKRis CUUIKUT «EA Service Staff Corrcspimdriil PARIS.—Tlie \vorld may be trailed, any day no-.v, lo !Mr> unusunl spectacle of Prance giving some- tiling mvny. Tlie something is the mandate for Syria which France lias h«ld tidier decree of the Ix-ugue of Nations, since 1020. To replace mis )i>amlm>, Svla may get its inclciwiidence on 'np- Iiroximalely the same terms which I Great Britain was oMIjeil to pive the Kingdom of Irak. These l-inns were nxed some years ago mirier a treaty which gnvc Irak independence with some restrictions in regard to military aid iu defense against foreign intrusion and in safeguarding British interests. To arrange a similar treaty 1>»\ Uveen Prance and Syria a delc«a- ' tion of eminent Syrian nationalists is at present in Paris. Most of t'ne members of the delegation were in Syrian Jails 11 few weeks ago. They, were released after a lifty-day boycott, in Syrian jia- • tionnl life which commenced last Jammry. In that time, not a wheel turned in Syrian industry, n 0 banking operations were completed nu 8«xls were sold from the warehouses, no taxes paid. The peo- |)lo "ji'st sat", according 'to |.>;e vivid description of a Syrian wno was a leader of the demonstration Unity of Race Proven I Tlie 50-day boycott was similar but much more effective, this spokesman declared, to the "passive resistance" to British rule in India led a few years ago by Gandhi. The reason it was more elective, according to Syrian opinion, was that the boycott was nation-wide, and revealed an extraordinary unity of the race for Syrian independence. In the meantime,' street, rioting The map shows U'p urea for iviileli Syrians seek independence.

All these expressions of national sentiment \yerc so convincing dial France- at last was forced to . agree to parley.

In mosque; and Christian churches Hie word vent forth (hat work should start, tlie boycott end. . • I'lcilgc iNi-ar »...lillmenl The Syrian delegates arrived in France on March 27. Persons close to the delegates feel that the present talks will be largely successful, from (he Syrian point, of view, and that they will go back to Damascus with a treaty between two sovereign states. Thus, the great betrayal worked by I lie Allies just after the war uixm the Arabs of the whole 1.=- vant and middle east, from Syria to tlie Persian Gulf, will be lately remedied, Tmd the promiscs°of Colonel T. E. Lawrence—"Lawrence of Arabia"—redeemed. For it was on Allied promises to establish an Arab empire that fhc IMople of the clesert joined the World War, and Lawrence was their spokesman. Hopes Wasted in Victory Thc Arabs, fortified by these promises, swept irresistibly up from the smith and captured the capital, Damascus, from the Turks When the war ended, they were raced, not with their Arab empire, but with a document called the Sykes-Picot Treaty, by which Great Britain and France, had dl- fided up the middle east between IV "Delves. An American fact-finding com- imission went lo Syria and came Iback lo Geneva with thc Information that nll Syria wanted in- lejjcndence; That they would ac- :cpt an American mandate if obliged to; that, failing an American 'mandate, they would accept n Brit«>i mandate; but that they would .'Ol, accept- a French mandate. It was a French mandate which .vas presently im]>osed on t'nsm Three Failures for France Since lhat time, the struggle be- .ween Prance and Syria has had hrce phases.
