He said In part:
X3e4iaral Ignorance has been singularly

th matter those wars eliminated th

Even if we limit ourselves to the Imme
diate consequences, we should hav to
embark upon several years of research
to obtain only doubtful results.
V most also take Into account the
Immense opportunities lost by French
men In all part of th world, and espe
cially "In America. The courag and

LONDON. April S. Sir Oliver Lodge,
writer and principal of th University
of Birmingham. In a lengthy review of
tb possibilities for onlversal arbitra
tion, published today, hold that, whll
everything arbitral should b arbi
trated, there are certain things which
no nation would consent to submit to
For Instance, he doe not bllv th
United Htate would agree to arbitrate
the matter should a European power be
unwise enough to Interfere In the event
that difficulty arose between the Amer
ican Government and Mexico. Similar
ly. England would never accept arbi
tration ehould a foreign power Insist
on bom rul for Ireland, or If Franc
desired to arbltrat an Issue In Egypt.
Touching on th position of Germany,
Sir Oliver foreseea In th near futur
th question of a German outlet to th
Mediterranean occupying th center of
the stag tn th world of politic.
This he also considers quite outside
th possibility of arbitration, aa & -
lleves'that to secure such an outlet has
been a long-standlns; secret policy of
the German Government.
In naval and military circles th sug
gestion has been advanced privately
more than one that the real objective
of th German fleet was the Mediterra
nean, and not th North Sea. Sir Oli
ver now openly voice the cam Id. a,
uggestlns; that on th death of tb
Austrian Emperor. Germany will make
a great effort to secure a seaport In
the Adriatic, with a territorial connec
tion with Germany.
Th new German fleet, the writer
contends. Is Intended to overawe Italy
and France, In order that the opera
tions may be carried on la spit of
their protests. In such an event.' he
says. Great Britain should keep hands
off and not attempt to curb Germany's
Just colonial ambitions.
