LONDON. June 14. Warren G.
Harding's personality and record being
virtually unknown here, newspaper
comment this morning expresses
neither satisfaction nor disappoint
ment with tho Republican cholco of a
presidential candidate. Several news
papers refor to him as "a dark horse"
and inter that ho represents a com

Among those taking this view are
the London Times and the Daily News,
the latter telling tho Democrats "the
best card they can play Is to per

League of Nations Talk.
The future of the league of nations
and of British-American relations are
points much discussed. Tho Morning
