July 14. ?An economic association of twenty-four nations comprising the entente allies already j is in existence, declared T,ord Robert I Cecil, British undcr-sccretary of state , for foreign affairs and minister of blockade, in a comprehensi ve state I ment regarding the world's trade after I the war. which w as Issued to-day. Whether Germany eventually shall ' he admitted to this economic associa tion. declared the British minister, will i be determined by the test established by i President Wilson, when the President ! said on December 4 that if the t.er | man people should still after the war ; was over "continue to be obliged to live under ambitious and intriguing ! masters Interested to disturb the peace ' of the world." it might be impossible i ?o admit them to the partnership of ' the nations or to free economic inter ; coursc. l.ord Robert described this statement by the President as a definition of the : qualification? for membership in th-4 association of nations, and added: "To ; these declarations we give our warm est assent."

"Germany's economic policy toward all the groupings of peoples from the Arctic Ocean to the Black Sea," lie continued. "Is absolutely contrary to 1 our principles.

"So long as this is the policy of Germany, how can we admit her to membership in the free association of , nations, lo which we. already belong?" j asked J-ord Robert. "Before we can J offer her any participation in our re sources. we must release her victims | from the economic slavery ihat she is ; imposing upon them." With regard to the economic prin ciples of this association of nations, I,ord Robert said President Wilson had ' on January S. "stated them in memor able words when he advocated the removal so fir as possible of all eco nomic barriers and the establishment 'of an equality of trade among the na tions consenting to peace and assert ing themselves for its maintenance." After giving "warmest assent" to these declarations of the President, Uord Robert added: ! "But do these declarations neces i sarily mean that we?the association of nations?are to have no protective tariffs in .international competition in trade after the war? No. livery one ! is agreed to that. In the words of the program of the interallied labor I conference 'the right of each nation to the defense of its own economic in terests and to the conservation of a sufficiency of foodstuffs and ma terials cannot be denied."" He concluded with th? expression of the hope that the time was not far ofT when the allies would meet at the council board to discuss in detail the economic associations, which will com bine the resources of the civilized world in the joint work of reconstruc tion and the restoration of properity.
