desired union Nwith Sweden. The
Ieague's settlement of the Silesian;
question was entirely unfair while the
handling of the Corfu incident revealed'
pitiable weakness. Under the League,
the disposition of Syria was farcical.
The Syrians desired first, independ-

third, by England. The League of Na-

one country which Syria had made it

Russell, "is a misguided idealist who
does not realize that one can't re-

world turmoil which has followed it,
until socialism is adopted. The recent
war was primarily waged for econom-
ic reasons. The United States joined
the war because the foreign loans of
her great bankers were becoming en-
dangered by Germany's threatened vic-
tory. The outstanding result of Mr..
Wilson's intercession in world' poli-
tics has been to help make the world
safe "from" democracy. The Amqi-
can people, duped by a subsidized
press, excited to patriotic fervor by
capitalist propaganda, fought for a
cause which was detrimental to their
best interests the perpetuation of gov-
ernment by financial oligarchies.."
To bring about the socialist regime,
