It is a most worthy example of liber-

Prof. M. P. Tilley of the English de-
partment, says, "The Student .Chrst-
ian association satisfies a need on the
campus met by no other organization

Reeves Approves World Peace
Plan Suggested In Bok Award

TO "PLAN 1468"°

Prof. J. S. Reeves, of the political
science department, when interviewed
yesterday voiced his approval og the
plan for world peace, chosen by the
American Peace Award as the winner
of the $100,000 prize, and declared that
he believed the major points of the
plan to be a practical means of ap"-
proaching a solution of the problem.
"Of course,' said ProfessorhReeves,
"tb-ere is nothing novel in the plan;
It is rather a restatement and devel-
opment of a number of old ideas into
one workable whole. I don't mean to
say, however, that I do not approve of
the plan because it has no novel fea-
tures. In fact, I believe that any ele-
ments of novelty would serve more as
an obstacle than as an aid in bringing
the plan into operation.
"C.ae of the most important features
of the whole plan is the elimination
or modification of Articles X and XVI
of the League Covenant in such a
manner as to render the organization
powerless to use coercion. This emas-
culation would rest the guarantee of
the Ieague's power and effectiveness
entirely upon public opinion, produc-

ed by confeernce and arbitration. And
any plan for world peace must depend
for its ultimate success upon public
opinion, for without this no force can
be effective which has been arbitrar-
ily set up. It is a question, however,
whether it would be possible to per-
suade the league to make the neces-
sary amendments,, even though these
two articles of the Covenant have
shown themselves to be utterly with-
out effect."
Professor Reeves then pointed out
the factors which may render the ap-
proval of the people of the United
States slow in forthcoming. The first
reaction is bound to be colored by
one's sentiment regarding the League
of Nations question, although in re-
ality the League would be so changed
by the proposed amendments as to be
an entirely different organization.
Furthermore, he said, there will be
large numbers who object to some
detail of the plan, and who will object
to the entire plan on that account.
Of course, those who adhered to the
policy of former*President Wilson will
be strongely opposed to the plan, he

League officials, basing their
views upon a somewhat meagre
summary of the project telephon-
ed from Paris, said the plan as
outlined constituted attremendous

In the absence of the full text
of the plan, officials were wary in
committing the league in any
way; but they seemed to have re-
