WHY NOT FOR PEACE I
It is announced from Wash
ington that President Harding
will soon call upon Great Brit
ain. France, Italy. Japan and the
Netherlands to sign an agree
ment to put into effect new rules
to govern the use of radio and
aircraft in war.
Ihe question is inevitable:
Why not in peace?
I*or some decades there have
been some ponderous and some
minute efforts toward the hu
manizing of war. whatever that
may be. I here can be no crit
icism of such efforts. Anv
agreements between individual
nations, or between all nations
tending to minimize the evils of
war. are worthy.
But peace is the thing. Why
siumd not peace-time be devoted
to sharpening the implements of
peace, and oiling the machinery
of commerce, as well as to con
sideration of ways to use wea
pons in war?
Radio and airplanes are dis
tinctly peace-time assets. They
are fundamentally international
in their use, and sound waves do
not stop at the national boun
dary lines. I here is no reason
why a beginning should not he
made at once in creating the un
derstandings in international
problems which arc bound to de

These figures are based on a pre

t). C., Mar. 30.
The celebrated Lansing-Ishii agree
ment, by which the United States in
1917 recognized Japan's "special in
terest” in China, has been cancelled
by mutual agreement of the Wash
ington and Tokio governments.
Diplomatic negotiations between
the two governments have been based
primarily on the provisions of the
"'tie nrTvr r act, written and regarded
ns applying more effectually the
“principles of the open door or the
quality of opportunity in China.”
In disposing of the Lansing-Ishii
agreement and substituting for it the
principles of the document subscribed
to by the nine powers.—the United
Stateß, Japan, China, Great Britain,
France, Italy, Portugal,the Nether
lands and Belgium.—the American
and Japanese governments accept a
document that is regarded as covering
more fully the situation and at the
same time do away with an agreement
that was a source of controversy from
the moment that it became effective.
The agreement was signed by
Secretary Lansing and Ambassador
Ishii on November 2, 1917, in the form
o£ an executive understanding and as
such it became immediately’effective,
