EGYPT APPEALS TO LEAGUE FOR SUCCOR Wants League of Nation* to Make England "Lay Off." TROOPS KEEP MOVING Lord Allenby Is Handling Situation And England Shows No Intention of Leaving Egyptians Alone. (Hy The Asa.',lated ITPH«) Geneva, Nov. 26.- -A telegram of protest against ihu British action In Egypt, following tho nssusslmi- tlon of the sirdar. Sir Lee Slack, was received today by the secretariat n[ tlm League or Natlo.m from tho Egyptian purllamout, under tHe slgnutu're of the president, of that bod.v. Tho text indicates that a similar comintinlcntlou bus been forwarded to all the world parliaments The telegram does not request intervention by the league, but is confined to an exposition of tho differences with F.ngland from the standpoint of tho Egyptian new government's policy. Troop Movements. While the movements of any British troops, toward Egypt have been temporarily suspended, the troops actually wlth'n Egyptian l.oundaries are constantly moving! towards and about tho concenl.ru> tlon points at Cairo and Alexandria. ' British tro.-ps are being marched through the (streets of Cairo daily in accordance with tho British custom in similar cases in near eastern territories based on experience us tc tho best, means .if deterring would-be rioters. Lord Allenby Informed tho homo government that tho.ro were three battalions of troops now in Cairo, that they were marched through the streets latn lust night nnd would probably be ordered out again today. Suppress Disturbances, The strike, of students and some of tho public employes aro continuing but it stntod they will probably be suppressed by the new cabinet. Tito minor disturbances and secret meetlnuK which have occurred so far aro asserted to have been Inspired by the students but itt«y havu not assumed any Important consequences. Tho Egyptian and British authorities are refraining from making any unnecessary arrests, although .martial law Is expected to be proclaimed lit the first Instanro of any •widespread disorders. The school authorities in some cases navo Issued doniajids thut the students return immediately to their work but these have not proved effective. Much Criticism. The wldo criticisms of the British actions regarding Egypt which liavo boen printed In newspapers throughout the continent are IU In any way taken by British officials as representing the attitude of tho foreign governments nor a., inspired by th^m nnd the fcugfeosllons that tho matter should he. referred j to the League of Nations urn not believed to bo seriously considered fry any of tni> powers iuj N-.o present ' situation Is thought to hi: regarded 1).- all of them to be the concern of tho protectoratu power, as In the cose of tho other North African protectorates. France Must Keep Out. As far na Prance Is concerned it is pointed out that, both franco and England are hound by tho agreement of llim In which each agreed not to interfere with tho other's sphere of Influence In Egypt and Tunis, respectively. So far so intimation has been officially made in any foreign quarter that the question of tho dlf- teronce between England * and l Egypt should he Bent to tiie League. The Egyptian governments, past nnd present, never have tnkon such action nnd the compbiliitK communicated to tho secretariat of thu ''league are declared bore to have coma only up to the preseut time from tho group of Egyptian deputies know ae forming the parliamentary association. • Not MemDer Anyhow, The Egyptian government, it is stated, has no power to raise tho question with the league council directly, us It la not a member of tb .e league but as a non-member It may requost another power to bring up any questiou It desires to ban; raised. No pronouncement bus been made by Groat Britain on the question of intervention by the league. The League Puzzled. The Leaguo officials seem in doubt as to 'what to do with the communication, coming as it does from tho parliament and not from the Egyptian government. Whether it .shall be distributed officially to the members of the leaguo council, which is meeting shortly in Lome, has not yet been determined, but officials this morning expressed the opinion that tho most likely course was the document would be transmitted to all the members of the leaguo-for their information. !
