Our Threefold Aim: To gr tha News of Bsrsa and Vicinity j To Record tho Happening of Berea Collr5 To bo of Interest to all tho Mountain People. No. 88 WorldNews Tha Council of tha League of Na tions has begun IU sitting at Paris. Among tha matters that requiro at tention la ths appointment of s com mission to consider the amendments to tho covenant of the League, sug gested at the recent assembly of tho League. Two of these are impor tant, for ona Would cancel entirely the famous Article X, and the other would .make all members of ths Council elective by the Assembly. An effort will also be made to d something for Armenia. It is reported that Prince Kro pot- kin has died in Moscow, Russia. It has been known that he was out of health for some time. Until recent times he hsd been obliged to livs out side of his native land on account of his radical views. Hs was a man of noble birth and of great menUl power. He was n socialist but not of tho violent order. He also received a military education and served for some time in ths army, becoming an officer of distinction. The United States Congress has authorized the purchase of tla lata Pierpont Morgan's place In London as a permanent home for tha Ameri can ambassador to England. It la very desirable that the United States should provide proper accommoda tions for diplomatic representatives abroad. We have been remiss In ths matter, snd second rata countries often have better dwellings for their ministers in other countries than a rich nation, such as the United Statea is. Tha Homo Rule Bill for Ireland will go Into effect early in April, ac cording to a decision of tha Privy Council. The first move to be made is to set ths elections of members for the two parliamentary bodies provided by the bill. England is de termined to sea this matter through along lines legally provided, and aba Willi not give in to the terrorist methods which have been used by the advocates of freedom. The Allies seem to have come to an agreement among themselves to sllow Turkey to have a part of tha territory of Thrace, which, it was expected, would go to Greece. This will amount, to about one-fourth of the land 'of that province. It is also expected that . Turkey will have a representative in' the commission or board that acts for tho nations in controlling Constantinople. This seems to be the conclusion of a long study of the situation and gives con sideration to all Interests. The appointment of Charles E. Hughes ss Secretary of State by President-elect Harding insures a capable and dignified management of foreign affairs. It is fitting also that the man who made so good a run for the presidency against Mr. Wil son should receive this recognition. Mr. Hughes has filled all the offices to which he has been elected or ap pointed with great ability. He is a careful, painstaking man and his ap pointment will be well received by foreign nations ss well aa in ths United States. It seems possible that tha United States msy accept from Belgium German bonds in payment of Belgian Indebtedness to our country. Tha smount of the debt Is something like 8170.000.000. England and Franca are expected to do the same and tha debta of those countries are much larger v than the obligation to tha United States. This discharges part of Germany's debt to Belgium at tha sama tims that it settles Belgium's debt to ths United States. Enough buyers for ths bonds csn doubtless be found. Can Never Tell About Beasts. In New England there was a man who would never commit himself oa any question. Time and time again attempts were .nisde to compel him to take a stand, but to no avail.
