See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The closing of the non-Turkish schools in Turkey, including the well-known French system maintained by the Alliance Israelite Francaise, resulted today in the presentation of a collective note by the diplomatic representatives of the Allied Governments here.

Besides the Alliance schools, the order of the Turkish Government affected many Christian schools, especially those maintained by the various missions, including the American.

The note submitted today by the European governments to the government of Kemel Pasha is couched in very mild language and limits itself to pointing out the inconveniences which will result from the closing of the schools.
