delectable Christmas dinner of tripe, loyally doing overtime

reef in his belt, ror the dinner had not bem filling, went for

In this crisis Jamie remembered his geography. He saw
marked on the state of Texas "Acquired by annexation." A
happy thought came to him, if possible for a country, why not
for a girl. So he proceeded to annex his Jeannie. .
Marriage was a simple affair at home. He supposed it
was the same eyerywhere. He was mistaken. They did not
belongto'the class who apply for "special dispensations." so
the banns must be published for three Sundays. Such an or

a room that looked out on back yards and chimney pots and
smelled of bilge water, but to them the view was a combina

The smells were transmuted by love into the perfumes of Araby
the blest, and life went merrily on.

prunes have not been desired by
anybody because there teemed
nothing much to them except pit.

are really sweeter and more pal

sons are as follows:
(II I have not forgotten the
rf0.000.000 human beings who
have died because of this war, or
the death roll which will ytream
frcm It for many years to come.
I have not forgotten the social
revolutions that have followed
from the collapse of government,
the daugers they have presented
and continued to present to our
civilization. I hav not forgotten
that it U impossible with our
modern World communication, to
maintain the isolation of the
United States. I know that the
march of dreadful Invention dur
ing the past war and the addition
of our genius to these invention.
n. the future will make the next
great war ; a war of soldiers
against civilians even to a greater
extent than the latter part of the
past war. 1 know that every so-
c'al student realize that another
great war will further loosen so
cial forces, that will destroy our
civilization and i's foundation In
individualism. It requires no
demonstration 'that the world ha
a larger offensive armament to
day than before the war; that,
for instance, the British navy now
dominates the entire world. In

2 I consider the essential
principle ot such a league tJ be
continuous council of men repre
senting the authority and confi
dence Pf their own countries In
continuous service to mitigate' the
causes which give rise to war.
Their objects must be the pro
gressive disarmaments of the
world, the settlement of disputes
by advice and conciliation, the es
tablishment of international jus
tice and arbitration, the mainten
ance of organization, procedure
and of courts to this end, the cre
ation of public opinion against
acts of aggression. It needs no
more ' powers than public opin
ion and upon approval of the most
powerful weapon in modern civi
lization, that is, the economic
boycott against countries who
would disregard the decisions of
international tribunals and start
ventures that could involve the
world in war. Furthermore, such
a body can perform great and be
neficent service to the world in
building up ot international ac
tion concerned with the protec
tion of life and private property
at sea, the spread ot contagious
disease, the development of Inter
national communications. To
gether with many million other
Americans. I " care but little for
the words In which such an agree
ment is expressed. ItMs immater
ial to me what the name of the
body is. The world has gotten
used to "League", so there is no
point In change.
(3)1 see no reason why such a
body should have any power that
leads to super-government or that
in any way minimizes the very es
sential principle of nationalism
upon which our patriotism and
progress are founded. I do not
believe that interest in the wel
fare of our neighborhood under
mines our family life. On the
contrary. I believe It strengthens
it with a wider understanding. 1
do not consider that the question
of the powers of such a body Is
a matter of principle, as has been
contended by our Democratic
friends: It is merely a matter of
method. While to get peace I
would have accepted Article X.
subject to uperauthorlty of con
gress, I have always believed thai
any 4ower of such a body to call
for military force undermines the
intrinsic strength of any Institu
tion that must be based on moral
forces and public good will. The
cower of economic boycott-can be
Imnlemented without military
force and the resolve to'have nei
ther communication nor business
with a nation bent on agression l
a more potent weapon 'for good
than any threat of military agres
sion. The world has come to a
condition of economic dependence
Upon which no nation can moral
ly or physically survive cont.nued
isolation. . The privation, unem
ployment, economic difficulties
that arise in any nation so isolat
ed are snch that no political ele
ment In that community can con
tinue in control. I do not consid
er that such a council should
have the right to commit, either
actually or morally, any of the
member nations without their
considered votex .
(4) I believe that the present
covenant with alterations indicat
ed by the Republican reservations
entirely covers such an assorts
tion as I describe. I favor build
ing upon the present league as a
matter of practical statesmanship
Thirty-nine nations representing
75 per cent -of the people of the
globe have accepted it. They are
not going to consent to Its de
struction; they will accept altera
tion and Improvement. The pres
ent league has functions connect
ed with the execution of the
Treaty of Versailles that mate it
an integral part of the stability
of Europe, entirely aside from Its
functions in the prevention ot
war. By necessity some reservoir
for Insolvable problems, such as
Danzig and Constantinople, the
present league. is Intertwined In
the stability of Europe and can
not be torn down without again

The stability of Europe and its
gradual recuperation are abso

will far one moment invite chaos
by endeavoring to tear up the set
tlement which has been arrived
at. Th's treaty Is bv no mean
perfect, but I know of no human
compromises that reach the area
of perfection. So far as I have
been able to observe, the other
members of the league place no
premium on the dotting of an "I
