U.S. Joins Attempt
To End Chaco War
WASHINGTON, Dec. 7 -(P)- As
a "good neighbor" the United States
accepted today the role of peace-
maker in cooperation with other
American republics, in an attempt
to end the long jungle war between
Bolivia and Paraguay.
With the belligerents still locked
in a desperate struggle in the Gran
Chaco, Secretary of State Hull in-
formed the League of Nations this
government would cooperate in the
peace plan by assuming two responsi-
1- -Name an American member
to the neutral supervisory commis-
sion, which will try to end the war
2 -Name American delegates to
a Pan-American peace conference at
Buenos Aires, designed to negotiate
a lasting settlement of the 50-year-
old border dispute and insure future
peace in South America.
Since the United States is not a
member of the League, Hull declined
to become involved in any league or
European entanglements by collab-
orating with the league's Chaco ad-
visory commission at Geneva.
