COMMISSION TO CODIFY
t ' INTERNATIONAL LAW
Appearance of Former Attor
ney General of United
j ' States Important
ROME. Dec. 12. (By The As
sociated Press.) The league of
nations can become truly great
only when the United States ad
heres to it in some form or other
declared Aristides Briand,-former
premier of France to the Ameri
can correspondents tdnisat.;
M. Briand spoke to the news
paper men' after a public session
of the council, which took a step
calculated to help in the main
tenance of peace my naming a
commission for the codification of
international law. : He emphasiz
ed what he termed the supreme
gesture France has already made
In accepting the Idea of compul
sory arbitration for any and all
disputes and by inference, he laid
stress on how important is the ap
pearance of George W. Wicker
sham, former attorney general of
the United'States on the law codi
fication commission. '!?
-' Flace Hope la Law
In his talk with the correspond
ints, M. Briand, like Senor Guanl
ef Uruguay, and M. Unden, Swed
en in the formal, session, referred
to the great hopes pinned on the
work or the law commission. " He
showed himself a steadfast advo
cate of the Genera peace protocol
during a frank discussion of world
political conditions, but he ex
nroaspit thf; readiness of France
to considers any practicable sug
restloss - of fotfaer,s powers looking ,
to perfection of the protocol,
irhich he described as a powerful
medium for the prevention of war.
"The only possible hope, for the
future. Is for the nations to go be
Jore Judges," said M. Briand. .
This, he declared, Is what tin
protocol provides, and he added v
"if there is any country in the
world which Is ardently devoted
to such a method of settling a con
flict it is the. United States.",
,- Position Understood
Concerning the so-called Japan
ese amendments touching upon the
league council's : powers to exam
ine into disputes which have aris
en out of i domestic problems. M.
Briand remarked that. President
Wilson found it appropriate dur
ing the great war to intervene and
esk the European powers to state
their war aims. No one, the
French statesman added, deemed
this extraordinary and no one ob
jected, because all understood the
request was based on a desire tq
help humanity and stop wart
The only Idea of the protocol,
in the opinion of M. Briand, was
to offer mediation. , He asserted
that it was not intended to inter
fere in domestic matters ; Any
case of- world .conflict, he said,
naturally was of concern; to the
league of nations," which was .de
moted to maintaining peace.
M. Briand affirmed his belief
that the league of nations was
growing stronger every day.

This morning shows' up soine
what better. The Statesman
cash fund has now reached sub
stantial proportions. There are
also a few families reported and
there will be more. The tinia
la getting short and the fund
ought to be' closed so that It
Can be apportioned out. This
Is not charity- in any sense.
This, is a fund of neighborly
kindness and helpfulness. It
Will be given to the people who
Jeed it and not to people who
re cared for by the Associated'
Charities or : the Salration
Army. It Is not interfering
with them In any way.
j In addiUon to the cash noted
below, Jessie Craycroft, a Wil
lamette student, sent some
clothing. Mrs. Baker of North
Eighteenth street sent some ap
ples. A "friend" brought a
bundle of clothing but askei
that her name ; be withtcU.
Mrs. J. W. Chambers of Court
street brought clothing. A
"friend" telephoned yesterday
morning that she would supply
a' bed and spring for the family
mentioned yesterday. This still
leaves' a cook stove to be- sup
plied. ' A woman with a number cf
small children was found des
titute in the streets. A alern
woman provided for them until
yesterday when they were
turned over to the Associate 1
Charities and received prompt
attention. There is still a need
for two cook stoves a very Im
perative need. Those who have
stoves they can spare, either
notify the Associated Charities
or The Statesman. The cash
fund is as follows:
