.. .v .v i.i.mg jiowfis 01 me woriu, and they offered to sinter
ing hiiinainty the boon of a lasting peace which is onlv possible
through a world power such as the Leuf".. f Xutiim. Tias ts what
the world wants and this is what the world is going to hae sooner
or later. The League Coenant may not be perfect 111 all respects
from the .standpoint of its opponents; but until the woild produces
perfect men, there can bo no perfect law governing the conduct oi
men or nations.
It is generally admitted, even by the ardent Leagik- oppo
nents, that the purpose for which the League of Nations came into
being is good and worih.. Why then squabble about minor clauses
which were not intended to, and cannot destroy the fundamental prin
ciples? Article 10 of the League Covenant is piobably the most discussed
:rtieb' of the whole document. The opponents base their chief ob
jection to the League upon tins aiticle, elaunisg that by this cjause
our government would be forced into European. wais etc. Wo fail
to find grounds for such absuid contention 111 this ancle and we 10
produce it to show our leaders what flimsy excuses tho opposi
tion is offering for fighting the League Supporters. The article in
"The Members of the League undertake to respect and
preserve us against external aggiession the territorial integrity and
existing political indepeudi nee of all Membeis of the League. Ill case
of any such aggression or in ease of any tin eat or danger of such ag
gression the Council shall advise upon the means bv which this obli
gation shall be fulfilled."
There are only two sentences to this article and the language is
not at all ambiguous it is c,y plain. In ease of "external aggies
sion," or threat thereof, "the Council (a committee proxided by and
within the League of Nations to hear and pass upon in an aihison, ca
pacity all international disputes affecting the peace of the world)
shall advise upon the means by which thiv obligation shall lie ful
filled." Nowhere in this article or in the entne covenant is there
any clause which connn.inds any member of the League to lake up
the fight of any other member or to 111 any way assume outside re
sponsibilities in international affairs The fight against the League,
therefore resohes itself into one of two (impositions: Either the op
ponents do not understand the Covenant or understanding it wilfully
misrepresent it In cither case they are dangerous advocates and
should not be heeded by the voteis of this country.
So far as the Coloied people of America are concerned theio
.should be no opposition to the League. It is not only a good thing
for the black man ot America, but it has been reeognjssed by men of
the Knee at the head of such a lepublic as Liberia as the only salvn
tion for their government under existing world conditions, and be
cause they considered it such this black republic, wrested from the
French by a former black slave and given to the world as a token of
the black innn's love for liberty and freedom, registered as one of the
original thirt.-two members of the League and thus took her stand
011 the side of humanity. Viva Liberia! Haiti and Cuba are also
members of the League. It means much to these countries to be
identified with the big power of the world 111 the struggle for a last
ing peace and because it menus so much to these peoples it should
and does nlso mean much to the Colored people of America to bn
found on their side.
