ere is no doubt that the Ameri-

the present prosperity of our

also increase. The discussion
has arisen over our international

way by which to secure this con-

author of the winning plan as soon
as the referendum is completed. The!
second $50,000 will be paid' "if when
the plan in substance and intent, is
approved by the United States Senate'

The question whether amendments
which may be made in the Senate ma-

Although the author of the Blok peace plan will not be officially an nnnd nntil after the balloting is
concluded in February, it is declared in Washington that the prize-winning plan is the work of Mr. and Mrs.
William Atherton Dupuy. Mr. and Mrs. Dupuy recently returned from Goneva, Switzerland, where he held an
official position with the League of Nations. His wife is prominent in the affairs of the League of American
Pen Women. Mr. Dupuy has been a newspaperman all his life, but has had some experience in warfare in be-
tween. (He was a captain in the military intelligence division of the general staff in 1918.) For a while he
was field secretary of the Navy League.

t under the cover of the obje-

opponents whose objections may
