. Prospects for Peace
; Y"N the occasion of the Woodrow Wilson anniversary din-
: J ner last Thursday President Roosevelt, in the nresence
of a distinguished company of friends of the late president,
1 ; including his widow, definitely declared that this country
does not contemplate joining the league of nations. There
was nothing novel ir the declaration saye for the company
to whom it was addressed, Bat the president went farther
and outlined a three point policy which would lead in his opin
ion to universal peace. His program is :
. l.;Let the nations agree to eliminate every weapon of of
fense and create no new ones.
' 2. A simple declaration that no nation will permit Its armed
; forces to cross its own borders into territory of another nation.
3. Ratification by "solemn obligation" signed by all the na
' . tlons of the world. ; . -
'; . - ? With no desire to decry the president's gesture in the
direction of world peace one may nevertheless point out prac-
' tical difficulties which are obstacles in the success of his pro
granL First, there, is disagreement over what constitutes wea-
pons of offense as distinguished from weapons of defense.
How could England; for example defend herself save with a
, mobile,, fleet and aircraft? Second, the agreement not to in-
- vade other nations may be wholly unacceptable to the nations
like. Germany and Hungary which feel .they were unjustly
stripped of territory by the treaty of Versailles. Germans are
- once more drinking "Der Tag," to the day when they can
recover "lost provinces" Third, a "solemn obligation" has al
ready been subscribed to in the Kejlogg peace pact; but it has
not availed to halt Japanese'aggression or still German ambi-
tion or assure French security.
Frank H. Simonds, noted journalist whose writings are
devoted principally to; international politics, says in an article
. ' in the current Atlantic monthly that "Europe is now going
back to a system of balance of power". He refers to the
league of nations as "a great and noble jiream" which has
been demonstrated "for all present time as only a dream, be-
cause all peoples with equal energy and conviction place their
national interests above aU international comi derations." In
view of the thrill of exultation which ran round the world
when the Pact of Paris was signed just a few years ago, it is
chilling to read these words of disillusion from Simonds :
"We shall hear little more of Kellogg Pacts or of the Cove-
- nant of the League. Genera will in due coarse become as de
serted as did The Hague In the years Just preceding the World
war. It has many useful and necessary-international tasks to per-
- form, and it wjll go on performing them. Bat it will no longer be
the headquarters of world peace, because that world peace has
" again become a fiction, and the measure of temporary tranquil
; llty which endures will be determined by the GHQ of various
armies, not by any body meeting beside the shores of Lake Le-man."
1 Nor is the imminence of
of the treaty of Versaillea which are used as goads by the
German nazi leaders. Simonds comments that "the life of a
" post-war settlement is directly conditioned, not by its inher-
rut, jusute, uui uy me xorces avauauie vo sustain it. vvny 13
' this? Again to quote : -1 v
"Twenty-five years of more er less continuous contact with
-'. ' Europe in peace and war, innumerable excursions across the fron
tiers of frietion in the Balkans, the Carpathians, along the Dan
" ube and the Vistula, haTe satisfied me that, at least In Europe,
peace and nationalism are Irreconcilable.' In the rery nature of
things all wars are nationalistic; all settlements after war ac- --
: cord with the Interests of the Tic tors: lor the vanquished U such
adjustments are therefore Intolerable." -
1 Not by acquiescence in new "solemn obligations" but by
a the erosion from the minds of peoples of intense nationalistic
spirit will the vffll to peace be made enduring.
