CUBBEHT EVEHTS Small Nations Asserting Them selves in Meeting of the League Assembly., •luuauA pi r-i-rw Early Admission of Germany Seem6 Likely Soviet Ru6sia, Having Crushed Wrangel, Is in Strong Pe tition— Greeks Way Restore Constantine to Throne. By EDWARD W PICKARD. No sooner IkwI Hip nssenibly of the League of Nutm: yui down to busi ness in its fir.M meeting in Geneva than signs of discord between tin* groups of large and small notions ap peared. Up to i.ate the latter lmve the better of the argument, and the fears of persons thought the do- 1 ings of the league would he dominated by Great Britain. France, Italy and perhaps Japan :i". somewhat allayed. Indeed, the re,.-ivsenratives of those four nations were by no means in ac cord on all points. The Italians placed themselves In opposition to French propositions, and the various British dominions did not agree with the mother country. I A most Interesting development of the week was the announcement that Spain would join with Great Brit ain, France and Belgium in policing the Vllna zone during the plebiscite. This was looked on as possibly the beginning of the organization of a league army. The first day, after the election of Paul Hymans of Belgium as president saw the opening scrap over the mat ter of admitting Germany to member ship in the league. The French had objected that this subject did not ap pear on the agenda, but Tittonl of Italy 'declared the whole world de manded the admission of the enemy states and would not accept the ex cuse that their applications had not been received in time. Sir Robert Cecil, who represented South Africa, appeared to side with Tittoni. It was decided that six commissions should handle the work of the assem bly. The first is to take care of gen eral organization the second technical organization the third the internation al court of justice the fourtli finance the fifth admission of new members, and the sixth reduction of armaments, blockade and military pressure on covenant breaking states and man dates. When these commissions* were named, on Wednesday, the supporters of the immediate admission of Ger many scored another victory in the election of Delegate Iluueus of Chile as president of commission number 5 Doctor Blanco of Cuba was made vice president. The French were sur prised and chugrined at not receiving this presidency for Vlvlani, but they had been already put at a disadvan tage by the naming of Bourgeois as head of the third commission. It had been supposed that Great Britain, be cause of her naval power, would get the presidency of the commission deal ing with disarmament and blockade ot covenant breaking states and with mandates, but here again the smaller nations showed their independence by giving the place to Delegate Branting of Sweden. The French, Italian and English delegations won a point Tues day when it was decided that the com missions might, if they wished, sit in camera and need keep no minutes of their sessions. Cecil protested in vain against this. Delegate Puyrredon of the Argen tine told the assembly that his delega tion believed all recognized nations must belong to the league to make It effective and to avoid the danger^of the organization of a rival league. He Bald that a formula must be found to permit t6e United States to come In, and demanded that the league be made more democratic by electing all the members of the council in the assem bly, instead of allowing the big pow ers to name a majority olthem, as at MISSOURI VALLEY, IOWA, NOVEMBER 25,1920 fc' i&f 1—Red Cross and other organ.ant .- a .vm.uo ..uwriy, JLhdioe'a is Of Florence Nightingale. 2—British troops executing Turkish murderers at bassaclor to.the U.

Having crushed Baron Wrangel and expelled him and is trocps from the Crimea, the Russian soviet govern meni finds itself in good shape to re sume negotiations for the resumption of trade with other nations.

It is planned, also, that Bavaria shall enter into an agreement with France to gnaiaiilee her independence and ob tain relief from her part of the Ger man war burden. The story, which is plausible, says the real niler of Ba varia is Doctor Escherlch, founder of the Bavarian home militia, whose armed strength Is about 100,000 that he is backed by the former German s'aff oilicers and monarchists, chief of whom is General Ludendorff, and that Ludendorff probably would be chosen regent. Escherlch has refused to dis arm his militia, and it is expected the entente will soon threaten to occupy the Ruhr basin in consequence. When this Is done, according to the plot, the workers, socialists and communists will lare a general strike nnd in the ensuing conflict the coup d'etat will be accomplished. ?, ___«___ useless to give aid tie factions within Russia that were rebellion gainst Lenity? and Trot7.' ,v. Even the leaders of the Metishiv'sts and otlcr wise opponents of Bolshevism In Russia have long maintained that position and asserted that the host th'ng 'o do was to recog nize 'h' Moscow government, or at least let it a one. a'd that ultimately, having nothing to fight, Bolshevism must fall. It seepis likely that this view of the problem will now become general. The erush'ns of Wrangel was swift, once the Bolshe I!i had broken throit'-'li his deferses on the I'erekop penltis'ta. His troops were driven back to Xehastopol ind some 20,000 of them, together with many thousands of civilian refugees, embarked there and were carried to Constantinople and other ports. Wrangel also escaped to the Turkish capital. The soviet forces were then directed against the Ukrainians under General IVtlnra and these also were nut to rout. Kiev and other cities being occu pied by the Reds. There was fear in the capitals of Europe that the Rus sians would now renew the fight against the Po'es. nnd certain threat ening notes from Moscow to Warsaw increased the apprehension. The Turkisfy nationalists have desig nated soviet Russia as the "warden of the Orient." according to Talaat Pasha, former vizier, and consider the treaty between Turkey and the allies Invalid. With the help of the nation alists. the Russians are strengthening their hold on the country between the Black and Caspian seas, demanding more and more from the Georgians and the Armenians, and opening more com pletely their route to Persia, and Meso potamia. and perhaps to India. The British have decided not to reduce heir military establishment in Meso potamia for the present.*.

It was taken for granted that the victorious party, of which Gounaiis is the head, would re call Constantino to the throne, though he says he will not return except by mandate of the Greek people In a pleb iscite. Probably a majority of the civil population would vote for the res toration now, but it Is be'ieved most of the army would oppose It If given a chance to vote. There Is even some talk of the troops In Asia Minor re turning to prevent the recall of Cou stantlne by force. This presumablj would precipitate a civil war. France and England have been holding con versations over the Greek situation, but It was stated neither would act without the other. The Kansas Industrial court, which has been so bitterly attacked by or ganized labor, showed the other of Its two edges last week when It called be fore It representatives of all (lour mill« In Topeka. Workmen had cmnplnined to the court that some of the mills had closed down nnd others were on part time, and the court wanted to know why, since such a thing cannot be done without court sanction where a neces sity of life is Involved. The millers agreed that the cheaper Canadian wheat available to Eastern mills and clienper Canadian flour avail able to consumers had led to such curtailment of new orders and iiuch cancellation of orders previously placed that mills which had closed ir were on "part time" had acted from necessity. If the court finds, the ac tion of the millers unjustified It can order the operation of the mills on a scale which it deems Just. It will be readily seen that this case is of far more than local Importance In Its Influ ence on future legislation and the pos sible establishment of similar courts In other states.
