WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 18 19251
Night Editor-KENNETH C. KELLAR1
WANTED: A BETTER PLAN
Intelligent consideration of a world
institution of such major importance
as the League of Nations should be a
part of the mental activity of every
man or woman with any semblance ofj
intelligence. Whatever opinion an in-
dividual may have of the function of
the organization as a factor in world
peace he should realize that it has al-
ready done enough to warrant a per-
manent place in international life. InI
view of this, the efforts of the League
of. Nations Non-Partisan association
to provide discussion by competent
speakers is noteworthy. Especially
significant was the address of Ray-j
mond B. Fosdick, eminent jurist of
New York City, here Monday night.
Those who have taken an hostile
attitude toward anything that the,
League sponsors and have scorned the
principle which 'underlies all its ac-
tivities must have squirmed either
mentally or physically as Mr. Fosdick!
successfully refuted all the stock
arguments, which have been raised at
intervals by strident politicians. And
not only did he quite successfully
down the opposition, but he expound-
ed at length the benefits which have
accrued to the world since its in-
ception. It hardly seems possible that
any of the League's opponents present
could have gone away unconvinced
that United States should have a part
in so great an undertaking.
An there is no one of the critics
who can answer Mr. Fosdick's final
challenge: "What is a more feasible
scheme for preserving the peace of
the world?" They can only refer us
to the time-worn phrase, prepared-
ness, which being interpreted means
a new international race in arma-
ments. The League idea of confer-
ence, of bringing nations continually
together to talk things over is the only
one which can possibly protect the
peace of the world. No number oft
defensive alliances or preparatory
measures will produce a tenth of the
good will which has already been en-
gendered by the League assemblies.
Indeed one is forced to the conclu-
sion that those who oppose United'
States' entrance into this body, as
well as- active participation in the
World court look blindly forward to
war, failing to discern the end of
westerr civilization which is almost
certair to result. While many per-1
sons, nearly everyone in fact, can re-
alize the manifest imperfections of
the League of Nations, no one has' yet
come forward with a better plan. t
