"It was a Slavic people and I had to say to my Italian friends that every where else in this treaty we have given territorv to the people who lived on it nnd I do not think that it is for the advantage of Italy and I am sure it is not for the advantage of the world, to give Italv territory where , ther people live. I felt the force of the argument for what they wanted, and it was the old argument that had always prevailed, namely, that they needed it from a mili tary point of'view and I have no duobt that if there is no league of nations they will need it from a military point; but if there is a league of nations, thoy will not need it from a military point. If there is no league of nations the military point of view will prevail in every instance and peace will be brought into contempt, but if there is a league of nations, Italy need not fear the fact that the shores on the other side of the Adriatic tower above her lower sandy shores on her side of the spa because there will be no threatening guns there and the nations of the world will 'have considered not merely to see the Slavic peoples have their rights, but that the Italian people have their rights as well. I would rather have everybody on my side than be armed to the teeth and every settlement that is right, every settlement that is based upon the prin ciples I have alluded to is a safe settle ment because the sympathy of mankind will be behind it.
