The bureau, as the council is now of ficially designated, is understood to feel that an early decision on the ter ritorial questiens is Oleesary for lth drawing 1up of a prelim nary peace treaty which will permit demobili zation. Certain d(llegatesl are known te favor iunmediate settlement of sev eral tmore re'silalg territorial prob lemts insltead of waiting for those miatters to be handled by the league of n:tioins. In addition to the effect on demobilization, the dol(pgates are influenced in this view by lhe fact that certlain industries awaitL terr torial adjulstmenls and that the situ ation to the affec:ed population is sc rious. Whatever action is taken, h:w ever, will conformi with the broad principles of the league of nations, including self-determnination. In case any contemplated settlmnients leave. controversies they will be subject to reconsideration by the league. Terri torial questions which may reeeive early consideration include adjust ment of boundarics of Poland and the (Czecho-Slovak republic, and the disposition of ermlian (coiloniies, both in Africa and' the Pacific.
