ARMED FORCE IS NECESSARY TO BACK (jPJREATY Former President Commeots on Situation in China and Tripoli Turkey a Fleet of Any Size Italy Would Not Have Declared War (By Associated Press.) NEW YORK, November 2—The war between Italy and Turkey proves the utter inefficiency of paper treaties when they are unbacked by force, according to an article by Theodore Roosevela. on "Arbitration, pretense and reality." in the current number of the Outlook. Mr. Roosevelt, who thinks 'the real friends of peace in this country ought to be able to profit by the events that happened in China and in the Mediter ranean during these fall months, since the arbitration treaty was considered in the senate." Mr. Roosevelt says, "The complete absence of militarism in China and the Chinese effort to rely purely on pacific measures in dealing with all foreign powers within the last few decades, have had but the smallest effect in saving it from tyrannic'mis government, and the most far reaching economic misery at home, and more over, has had the effect of depriving it of the means of keeping order within its boundaries. As for the war be tween Italy and Turkey," continues Mr. Roosevelt, "I am not now concerned with its ethical justification. Personal ly I believe it is in the interest of humanity that Tripoli should fall un der European control. But this is not the point," says the former president. 'The point is that this war proves the utter insufficiency of paper treaties when they are unbacked by force. The utter folly of those who believe that these paper Treaties accomplish any useful purpose in the present stage of the world's development when there is no force behind them." Mr. Roosevelt says. "Turkey has all the protection it is possible to give her by these paper treaties, and yet all these treaties thus guaranteeing her against disarmament are not worth as much as a single gun- serious opponent to attack her. If Turkey had a fleet as strong as her army no man of any. sense be lieves that the war would have oc curred."
