Body Representing 20,000,-
000 Workers Would End
Reparation Issue.
By the Associated Press.
GENEVA, September 18.—World re
construction is dependent upon early
settlement of the reparation problem,
declares a manifesto distributed today
to all the delegates to the league of na
tions by the International Federation
of Trade Unions of Amsterdam, which
claims to represent 20,000,000 organized
workmen in various countries.
The manifesto, which is signed by the
French labor leader, Leon Jounaux, as
vice president, and Yan Oudegeest of
Holland, as secretary, says that occur
rence of incidents like the occupation of
Corfu, with consequent violation of in
ternational engagements, demonstrates
the state of insecurity in which the
people are living, and while the gnat
question of reparations remains un
solved the menace of armed conflicts
will continue to hang over their heads.
Geneva is developing at puch amaz
ing rapidity as the great world forum
for exchange of ideas that few. If any.
of the delegates assembled here for
the fourth assembly of the league of
nations are able to follow all the
activities of this extraordinary men
tal market.
With five or more league commis
slona sitting simultaneously, the
league supporters here from many
countries are having a desperate time
to follow all the debates and to keep
in touch with the various develop

That the celebrated article X, which
yesterday was termed the heart of
tho league covenant, is the center
intone of the present. league’s* activi
ties. is very clear. It forms the basis
of the proposed new treaty of mu
tual assistance, which. If approved by
the assembly, will virtually replace
On the other hand, several states,
especially Canada, are seemingly
doubtful of the fate of the mutual
guarantees pact and want article X
clarified or interpreted so that no
country will be called upon to ex
tend military aid Jo its fellows unless
Its parliament expressly gives au
thority to do so.
Some of the critics fear that this
wollnigh suppresses article X alto
gether. Others remark that it might
have the effect of removing American
objections to the covenant.
As proof that Geneva is creating a
helpful international atmosphere,

the Greco-Italian conflict.
M. Colitis of Greece strengthened
the league by publicly declaring that
tho council had strictly applied ar

her appeal, because It had followed
the fundamental injunction of that
clause, namely, that the council
should strive to obtain a settlement
of any world controversy apt to
lead to a break by employing any
means* at its disposal.

Whipping Strap, Banned Two
Year* Ago, Revived in Di»-

By ttas Associated Press.
BIRMINGHAM, Ala., September 18.
—The whipping- strap, abolished two
years ago by Gov. Thomas E. Kilby,
has been reintroduced in at least one
coal mine camp in Alabama, where
leased state convicts arc worked.
This became Known as a result of
an Inquiry into an outbreak at Ban
ner mines last week. The leaders of
tho trouble were flogged with a strap,
it was divulged In reports to the gov
ernor. White convicts are said to
have been among the number.
L. A. Boyd, president of tho state
board of convict supervisors, in a re
port to the governor, assumed re
sponsibility for thA floggings at Ban
Whether the strap will be replaced
in all convict camps was not stated.
Prisoners at the mine were quoted
by newspaper men as saying tasks
were made impossible because of
rock in the seam; that food was poor,
and that men were forced to work
when they should have been on the
sick list. This, the prisoners said,
caused the outbreak.
Prison officials said the trouble
was started largely by “outside agi
tation.” It is assumed he referred
to the effort of anti-leasing advocates
who seek to have leasing of convicts
abolished in Alabama.

made only after formal complaints had
been made.
The President has an engagement to
meet with the Tariff Commission to
