U. S. Holds It Is Chief Ideal
and Should Precede
Finding Favor in
France and Britain
Another Element Insists on
Land Division First to
PARIS, Nov. 26 (By The Associated
press).?A league of nations is likely
to figure before the peace conference
at a very early stage of the proceed?
ings, instead of being relegated to the
close, after the territorial aspirations
o? the various powers are settled.
Two distinct viewpoints have now '?
developed on this subjec. The Ameri?
can view is that the coming congr 'fis
will not be like the Vienna Congress,
which devoted itself principally to ar- ?
ranging what each pow<>r should re- ,
celve as a result of the Nnpoleonic up- '
heaval. According to the American
view, the present war was based on
certain high ideals and was not a
struggle for territorial gains.
League Among Chief Aims
Therefore, it is maintained, ideals
should come before territorial aspira?
tions in the "deliberations of the con?
gress, and these ideals having been
first defined, should thereafter be the
main guide in national aspirations.
One of the chief of these ideals, it is
pointed out, was to prevent future
warfare, and a league of nations has
been generally and officially accepted
as the most practical organization for
accomplishing that ideal. It is, there?
fore, held that this should be one of
the first subjects considered, and
should set a standard of ideals for
o'.her subjects following.
United States Idea Finds Favor
It can be said that this American
view of procedure has found warm r ^d
portera in England and France, though
there is also another viewpoint, w.iich
clings to the old procedure under the
Vienna Congress, whereby individual
aspirations for territory should have
Those urging that territorial ques?
tions should come first say that it is
highly desirable to sign a peace treaty
embodying the essential details at the
eariiest possible moment, so as to ter?
minate the official war period under
which troops are held for the duration
of the war, and railroads, telegruph?
and other public utilities are similarly
Effected until peace '.s declared. Ac?
ceding to this view an early peace
fignaement on essentials would release
the armies, including the American
troops holding the occupied regions,
Old Vrenna Plan Favored
Having secured an early agreement
on territorial and other practical de?
tails, ;t is suggested, the larger gen?
eral question, like tht league of na
tions could come up later for extended
discussion either by the peace confer?
ence or a separat.' international con?
gress to formulate the working details
of the league.
This view is chiefly held by those
.favoring the old Vienna congress pro?
cedure of individual claims first, while
the American .viewpoint is distinctly
favorable to establishing ideals first as
the guiding principie of he congress.
The appointment of the Brazilian
delegates, Nilo Pecanha, the Foreign
Minister, and Ruy Barbosa. Ambas?
sador to Argentina, is leading to a dis?
cussion a? lo what extent the South
American countries will support a
letgue of nations and the effect of the
kagup on the Monroe Doctrine.
Would Extend Monroe Doctrine
It is the general understanding that
'-he South American republics have the
same, favorable attitude toward a
?eaeue as the Allies.
Whether a leageu of nations, in
which i.'urope would be largely repre?
sented, would extend its authority to
the Western Hemisphere, including
South, Central and North America, is
not clear, but the prevailing view is
that its authority would be universal.
I*, ib said that this would not be a
substitution of the league's authority
for the M'nroe Doctrine in South
American affairs, but rather an exten?
sion of the Monroe Doctrine, whereby
joint international action would sup?
plement and reinforce the Monroe Doc?

The divisions of international law
and of geography probubly will be the
most important branches bearing di?
rectly on the work of the peace con?

The international law section em?
braces legal advisers, who have assem?

questions which will be placed before
the congress. The intelligence section
deals especially with present conditions
in the various countries.

LONDON, Nov. 25.?Nothing is

After the American naval programme
the thoughtful people realize that Eng?
land must enter another navr.l com?
petition, though on a friendly basis
with America, unless an agreement is
reached on thin question.
Britain has no objection to the prin?
ciple of naval disarmament, provided
she is absolutely convinced that all
danger to her island existence 19 re?

various theories designed for this ob?
ject will work in practice.
Another vital question involving
some of the same principles as free?
dom of the seas is "sovereignty of the
air," concerning which the British civil
aerial transport committee will report.
Among the recommendations of the
committee is that all parts of his
majesty's dominions should have juris?
diction over air, and for the air law
purposes it sugges's that "territorial
nir" limits should extend beyond the
territorial water limits.

Sen. Johnson Attacks
WASHINGTON, Nov. 20.?Senator
Hirnm W. Johnson, of California, in a
written statement to-day assailed the
Administration for its suppression of
free speech nnd free press. Aligning
himself with Senator Borah and other
"progressives," Senator Johnson de?
manded free nnd open discussion of
peace terms, nnd accused the Adminis?
tration of "Prussianizing news" during
the war. The statement of Senator
Johnson, in part, follows:

trol of the cables may result in an

While it is denied that any sort of
censorship is contemplated, it. is be?
lieved that Creel is working on a plan
for the apportionment of cable timo,
for giving priority of news matter
over commercial messages, and for the
employment, wherever possible, of

vice. Limitation of press cable time, j
it is pointed out, would be fully tanta?
