SUNDAY MORNING, AUGUST 14, 1921 SECOND SECTION Price Five Cent MILLIONS JOIN NEW CAMPAIGN TO SECURE FREEDOM FOR INDIA i V r BO MUST SIGN FIRST, IS EUROPE'S VIEW Allies Will Not Take Any - More Chances of Being , v Abandoned by U. S. BY MILTON BRONNER - . i LONDON. Aug. 13. "Stow me!" That will be the attitude of all the European statesmen vhen they meet in Washington for President Hard ing's conference on disarmament and Pacific bcean questions. The powers illustrate the old Bay ing, "Once bit twice shy." ' They feel they were bit once. At. Versailles they saw President Wilson and his secre tary of state put their signatures to a League of Nations agreement." And then they saw the Senate turn down the whole business. This time, before they do any sign ing, they Will want to see Harding and Hughes sign and the O. K. of the Sen ate, too. Not till then will they be ready to append their own signatures. But they do expect agreement will be easier than 1n the Wilson case be cause Harding has the Senate with him. Favor Ntw League If President Harding, after getting agreements on disarmament and Pa cific problems, wants to go a step tnrther and broach his Association of Nations in place of Wilson's League of Nations, preserving mainly the Permanent Court of International Jus tice, he will meet with far less oppo sition than is generally supposed. The 40 nations in the league don'f care about the name of the organiza tion, its form or its constitution, so-J long as the United States comes in. And there are indications that they are ready to agree to America makipg all the reservations it wants. The main thing Is the tax-ridden lowers of the world, together with nil the little countries, want protec tion against further wars. That will mean partial disarmament lower taxes, "more money for peaceful pursuits. League Very Busy The League of Nations Council nns "met 13 times.
