Gathering Is Called to Codify Laws
As Advised by Pan-American
Washington, Nov. 12.-Announce-
ment was made today by the state
department of the appointment of Prof.
Jesse S. Reeves, head of the political
'science department, University of
Michigan, and James Brown Scott, sec-
retary of the rJarnegie Endowment for
International Peace, as American dele-
gates to the International congress
of jurists at Rio De Janiero in 1925.
They will assist in codifying interna-
tional law in accordance with resolu-
tions adopted by the last Pan-Ameri-
P can conference at Santiago, Chile.
Five Pan-American conferences of
this character have been held since the
organization of the body by the United
States in 1890. The first session was
held in Washington in 1889-90, the sec-
ond in Mexico City in 1902, the third in
Rio De Janiero in 1906, the fourth in
Buenos Aires in 1910, and the fifth in
Santiago de Chile last spring. It was
at this latter conference that a resolu-
tion was adopted provided for a codi-
fication of international law at some
future meeting. The conference at
Rio De Janiero will be a technical one.
pursuant to this resolution.
Prof. John R. Dickinson of the aw
school department of international law
stated last night that the conference is
the "most important international con-
ference held in the western hemi-
sphere. Men of international repu-
tation in the field of international law
have been the delegates of the United
States and other countries in the west-
ern hemisphere to past conferences,
and it is indeed an honor of the high-
est degree to Professor Reeves to be
appointed as one of the delegates."
In commenting on the. appointment
of Professor Reeves, Dean John R#
Effinger of the literary college said,
"Professor Reeves' appointment is not
only a tribute to his ability as a schol-
ar of international law, but is a highly
signi~ficant honor to the University as
an institution."
