New York, April 22.-(By AP)-
Promise of efforts to bring about an-
other world conference on the limit-
ation of armaments was given by
President Coolidge in an address to-
day at the annual luncheon of the As-
sociated Press.
Such efforts, the President declared,
must be based upon the firm establish-
ment of a definite settlement of Ger-
man reparations. With this effected
America would well be in a position
to- take the lead in promoting an in-
ternational conference.
Will Be Based on First Conference
The president expressed the belief
that the proposed conference might
well be based on the theory of'the
Washington conference of two years
ago, which, he called to mind, had to
leave unsolved the question of sub-
marines, aircrafts and land forces.
The conference, he asserted, might take
up the codification of international
law with an attempt to establish rules
of warfare and to determine the right
of neutrals.
While emphasizing that Europe
must first set her economic house in
order, Mr. Coolidge declared that there
appeared to be every reason to hope
that the report of the Reparations
commissions committee of experts
offers a basis for practical solution
of the reparation problem,
