League As Medium For Peace

New Group Would Not Be
Mere Debating Society,
Professor Declares
A new League of Nations without
the perilous would-be powers of coer-
cic r which characterize the present l
one, a League based on "free will"
and relying upon moral force, was
seen as the medium for interna-.
tional cooperation and preservationI
of peace, by Profj Laszlo Lederman,
professor of economics at the Uni-
versity of Geneva, in an address re-
cently to the Foreign Relations Club.
"Why trust !arcewhen force has
failed?" Professor Lederman asked.
"This new league would not be a
mere debating society as many peo-I
ple say, but would be a body for the
active cooperation of the people in
preventing the outbreak of war and
the promotion of peace and friend-

Flavin's Play Given
Second Time Today
Play Production's second perform-
ance of Martin Flavin's "The Good
Old Summer Time" will be given
at 3:30 p.m. today in the Lydia Men-
delssohn Theatre.
This matinee is necessary, Valen-
tine B. Windt, director of Play Pro-
duction, explained, because of the
BostonSymphony Orchestra concert
Flavin's comedy which has also
great social significance was sub-
mitted to Play Production in a na-
tion-wide movement sponsored by
the Dramatists' Play Service to de-
centralize the American theatre.
Play Production was the first organi-
zation to accept the script and, thus,
is offering the play three weeks be-
fore the Broadway opening.
The last two performances will be
given at 8:30 p.m. tomorrow and
Saturday nights. Mr. Windt has re-
quested all patrons to submit to him
their reactions to the script

A proposal to determine a satis-

was that the member governments
were unwilling to conform to the
right conception of a federationtof
Itates," Professor Lederman said.
In any federation, he pointed out.
the members must surrender part
of their sovereignty; the members
of the League of Nations refused to
lose any part of their sovereign pow-
Three Classes Back League
Three classes may be said to have
backed the League, Professor Leder-
man explained, the idealists-those
for whom the League represented a
long-awaited for force for peace and
international cooperation; material-
ists who looked upon it not so much
as a moral ideal but an insrument
of preserving the status quo, and the
optimists who hoped that the League
would repair the injustices of the
Paris Treaty.
"The League failed," he continued,
"because it aimed at a democratic
institution for which, because of
their background, most of the mem-
bers were not ready. If it were to be
a democratic institution it meant
that the people must be willing to
accept this kind of government-
but the people who lost the war en-
tered and adhered with mental res-
ervations-to change the Treaty of
Paris. On the other side, the coun-
tries adhered with reservations of
their own: they sought to have the
League armed with physical power to
keep the Treaty."
League's Severest Blow
The severest blow the League suf-
fered was its failure in the Italo-
Ethiopian affair, Professor Lederman
said. The League failed, he con-
tinued; because economic sanctions
cannot be effective unless by a com-
plete blockade; and a complete
blockade means the coercing nations
will resort to war if need be to en-
force it.
Neutrality in the next war will be
much more difficult than in the
last, he pointed out. The essential
step is a policy of preventing the
outbreak of war. This cannot be
donerby isolation, Professor Leder-
man declared. In the active cooper-
ation of the peoples in a reformed
league or any other practical me-
dium lies the solution, he said.
