The three cardinal points of the
British terms as enunciated by tha
British prime minister are: Re-establishment
of the sanctity of treaties;
territorial settlement based on the
right of self-determination or the con

an international organization to limit
armaments and diminish the proba

Among the Issues for which Great
Britain and the allies were contending,
he stated, were the restoration of Bel

Inflicted; restoration of Serbia, Mon

Such a program, he said, removed
