LEAGUE DEBUTE' SUBJECT
REALTY BOARD MEMBERS DIS
President of Organization Makes
Report, on Details or "Oun-Your-Home"
The nronosed league of nations plan
was ara-ued nro and con at the lunch
eon of the Portland realty board In the
Benson hotel yesterday by B. F. Irvine
for the league and Ralh R. Duniway,
who opposed It in its present form.
Mr. Irvine admitted the league con
stitution might not be perfect, but de
clared a league of nations was the only
alternative to a still more terrible and
devastating world war.
He charged that most of the opposi
tion to the league of nations plan was
political, and made for its Influence on
the presidential campaign of 1920.
Mr. Duniway urged tnat every person
present read the constitution of thejp
leaguq. no oeciarea tnat unuer it me
executive body of nine had practically
arbitrary powers, and that they could
impose their will on the United States
in matters against its interests, because
this country would have only one vote
against the eight votes of European
members of the league.
He asserted that although Mr. Taft.
President Lowell of Hartford and other
ardent supporters of the league
month ago would not admit that it was
anything but virtually perfect, they are j
now, only 30 days later, admitting that
tne constitution needs revision.
Paul C. Murphy, president of the j
Portland Realty board, who has just re- j
turned from Washington, made a report
on his -work in outlining the "Own
Tour Own Home" campaign soon to
begin. Joseph W. Beveridge was chair
man ol the day.
