View Of Cleveland's Great Lakes Exposit ion At Night

Looking across the Court of Presidents at the Great Lakes Exposition on Cleveland's lake front. In
the distance is the aurora borealis lighting of the Marine Theatre. Between it and the Court of Presidents
is the double row of ships' masts flanking the Lake Erie Plaza.

also had upon its agenda such ques-
tions as limitation of armaments, re-
striction of the use of balloons, and
restriction on the use of submarines,
he said.
In 1907, the second conference as-
sembled as a direct result of "the
conventions of the first Hague Peace
Conference," and was attended by 47
states, 21 more than were present in
1898, Professor Wilson stated.
This group provided for a third
peace conference which was expect-
ed to meet in 1915, he said, but at this
time many of the earlier conventions
were being tested by the actual ex-
perience of war.
"During the war, there were many
violations of international law,"~
which, according to Professor Wilson,
"rarely profitted the guilty party."
Particular emphasis was placed by
the speaker on the fact that interna-
tional law should not be confused
with international relations or inter-
national politics.
Although nations whose policies I
are not in accord with international!
law may even make treaties whichA
would be contrary to 4international
law, these provisions may be declaredc
unlawful when they are brought to
an international court, he said.
Professor Wilson added that since
the World War, there has been "much

service, and asked it to send its am-
bulance to the collision.
The Red Top drivers, however,
stated that a previous run about a
year ago had been unpaid for because
passing motorists brought in the in-
jured parties before the ambulance
arrived and the county auditor had
refused to pay the bill. Accordingly,
they asked that the approval of
Cushing, auditor for the Board of
Supervisors, be secured.
Cushing, when called, asked the of-
ficers to arrange to hold the damaged
cars to insure payment to the county
by the injured parties if they were
able to pay, and because this would
have delayed service, the sheriff's of-
ficers called Red Top and sent out
the ambulance, offering to pay out
of office fu"ds if the auditor refused
to approve the bill.
Because of that action, the arrival
of the second ambulance was delayed
for almost three quarters of an hour.
Stagan's ambulance serves the county
for accidents on a contract basis.
Sheriff Jacob B. Andres stated yes-
terday that he intended to take the
matter up with the jail committee of
the county board of supervisors, in
order to eliminate such delays in the
