LONDON, May 10.-Sir Austen
Chamberlain, foreign secretary, an-
nounced in the House of Commons to-
day that the British government de-
sires to cooperate with the American
government in outla.wing war. He
was speaking on Kellogg's proposal.
A similar welcome o the American
move to achieve world peace was
voiced by Ramsay McDonald, leader
of the Labpor opposition, who intro-
duced the subject,.
Sir Austen said he would proceed
in the ordinary diplomatic channels
in treating on the proposal, although
at first he had favored submitting
the matter to a conference of inter-
national jurists, as in the case of the
Locarno pact. This idea was dropped,
however, he explained, when "one of
the governments concerned"-under-
stood to be the United States-indi-
cated that it did not approve of this.
The B'ritish attitude, the foreign
secretary continued, already had been
forwarded to the' governments of the
dominions in order that all elements
of the empire might take a common
position toward the proposal. He ex-
pected to transmit the reply to Secre-
tary Kellogg soon after the response
of the dominions were received.
Sir Austen was heard with profound
interest by the whole chamber. The
only mark of disapproval came when
he said that war never had been used
as an international policy by any
British government of thc4 present

May Charter Vessel
The possibility of chartering a
vessel to take the expedition directly
from this country to Greenland v't
the Labrador coast was being consid-
cred yesterday by Professor Hobbs.
Tile Disko left Copenhagen about
the first of April on its first trip o?
the year to the various seacoast ham-
lets of Greenland. On this trip it car-
ried William S. Carison of the geol-
ogy department to Holstensborg, the
Greenland port of call for the Mt.
Evans observatory of the University.
On its return trip it evidently was
caught in the floating ice off the sou-
them coast of Greenland. Professor
Hobbs said yesterday that while the
ship was probably perfectly safe, it
was a question of the wind when the
ship would be released. A south wind
would jam tihe ice up against the ship
I and pin it to the shore, while a north
wind would break up the jam and
free the ship in short order. In any
case the second sailing from Copen-
hagen, originally planned for June
1, will have to be postponed a fort-
night or a n;onth, which would be too
late for the Greenland expedition.
Professor Hobbs left yesterday for
New York, and will proceed from
there to Baltimore, returning tg Ann

cerned with matters pertaining to the
