BOYCOTT IN LEAGUE 'An informal Pan-American Com mercial Conference will be held about June 1 In the Pan-American building to discuss trade problems resulting from the war. This conference was decided on yes terday at a meeting of the board of governors of the Pan-American Union, which consist of the Secretary of State of this country and the am bassadors and ministers from the Latin-American countries. The board authorized the director general of the union to invite the commercial and financial experts of the United States Government, the consular, commercial and financial representatives of Latin-American governments in this country, and such other responsible commercial and fi nancial firms and individuals as arc Interested In the development 01 tne The boycott feature of the constitu tion of the league of nations would be a most powerful weapon, and in "a way a war without the use of ammu nition, was the declaration made by Louis F. Post Assistant Secretary of Labor, in an address before the Single Tax Association at the Public Library last night. "Commercial boycott of nations warring without consultation of the league of nations." said Mr. Post, "would be more effective than wooden guns or guns that shoot. "The league of nations will embody a sacred trust of all nations." he con tinued, "it substituting the older idea of the 'sphen- of influence' as used in European politics for the in terest of land-grabbing." Objectors to the league of nations, he said, represent those who echo sentiments heard, but who have never read, nor studied, nor endeavored to understand the articles of its constitution.
