tstablished Tradition And Habit
Of Conference Lacking Before
World War
Declaring that the League of Na-
tions was a continuous, existant
body, Dr. Manley O. Hudson, Bemis
professor of international =law at
Harvard university, reviewed what
he believed to be the definite accom-
plishments of the League in his lec-
ture on "The Dead League of Na-
tions," given last night in Natural
science auditorium.
"The League has accomplished
three things," Dr. Hudson asserted.
"First, it has established a tradition
and a habit of conference. Prior to
the Great War, those interested in in-
ternational peace could only look for-
ward to another Hague conference
sometime in the future. There was
no definite time set for such a confer-
once, which would discuss the prob-
lems of war which might arise. But
in the five years of its existence the
League has established a conference
with a memiberships of 55 nations,
which is sure to meet each year at a
definite time, for Which plans can be
made by the various foreign offices.
The League does not discuss war
problems alone, but problems of daily
international life. In addition to the
34 meetings of the League council,
numerous conferences upon varied
subjects have resulted from League
"We can not say definitely that the
League has averted war. There is no
way to prove that; had the League
not proposed arbitration in the Pol-
ish-German boundary dispute and in
the Smyrna and Corfu affairs, war
woild have resulted. Nor can we
say that should an acute situation
arise, such as in 1914, the League
could positively save the peace of the
world. But we do know that the
League in these instances at least
contributed to stopping a possible
war, and in the future the fact that
there is such a conference as the
League may avert war.
"The second definite accomplish-
ment of the League," Dr. Hudson
continued, "is the bringing into use
of alternatives to force in times of
crises. The method used has been to
confer until an impassable obstacle
is encountered, then to reorganize the
conference upon different lines, and
again proceed as far as possible.
"Thirdly; is the contribution of the
League to the development of inter-
national law. To insure peace, a law
must be built upon which people
'would be willing to rely instead of
war. The League has established a
Permanent court of international jus-
tice. In the three years of its func-
tioning, the court has tried 16 cases,
fendered five judgments, and ten ad-
visory opinions.
"The claim has been made that the
League has not attempted the codifi-
cation of international law. And this
is true. But the time was not oppor-
tune for the states which are mem-
hers of the League to attempt such
a thing. What they have used the
machinery of the League for is to
meet specific problems of interna-
tional common life, such as labor,
transportation, customs, commerce,
the opium traffic, and the like."
In conclusion, Dr. Hudson stated
that the entrance of the United
States into the League is inevitable.

We now cooperate with the League in
its various conferences, he said.
Following the address, Dr. Hudson
answered questions on the League
and international problems, pro-
pounded by the audience. Acting
President Alfred H1. Lloyd presided
at the meeting.

Will Receive Requests For Senior
Dance Tickets on Wednesday
And Thursday
Applications for tickets to the Sen-
ior ball, which will be held Friday
May 22, will be received in the lobby
of the Union Wednesday and Thurs-
day between 3 and 5 o'clock, it was
decided at a meeting of the Senior
Ball committee yesterday. With the
exception of making a final decision
on the two orchestras which will be
engaged, plans for the ball have
been completed. The committee is
confident that this year's affair will
be the most pretentious event the
graduating class has ever given.
Two of the leading orchestras in
this part of the country have been
practically selected from a long list
of applicants, and .a final decision
will be made by the committee in the
next few days. Music will be con- I
tinuous from 10 to 2:30 o'clock.
The number of tickets this years
has been limited to 275, which is con-
siderably smaller than in the past
few years. This is due to the fact
that the Union ball room has been
selected for the dance in preference j
to Waterman gymnasium. The latter
was thought too large for the senior
event by the committee. Only mem-!
bers of the senior class will be per-I
mitted to file applications for the
ball. '
Special emphrasis is being laid this1
year on the decorations, which will
be unusually elaborate. According to j
present plans the ball room will be r
greatly transformed for the occasion.
Refreshments will be served during
the evening, and elaborate favors will j
be given. Tickets will sell for $5. ]
Major Harold D. Burdick has been
transferred from Fort Leavenworth,

will succeed Major William T. Car-
penter as professor of military
science and tactics on July 1. The
appointment comes following Major
Burdick's graduation from the Com-
mand and General Staff school at
