sf Nations was the subject of the dis-
cussion at the International Rela-
tions Club meeting last night. The
discussion took the form of a de-
bate, with Mrs. Harold Miller, De-
troit, upholding the League, and
Frank Landers, '35, arguing against
its inaintenance. Following the de-
bate, the meeting was thrown open
to an informal discussion.
