The third session of the Assembly
of the League of Nations has con
vened at Geneva. The president of
the meeting is a delegate from Chile,
notable as a statesman and interna
tional lawyer. One of the principal
measures to be considered is a plan
to create regional districts, within
which the nations concerned will seek
to enforce the League's decisions and
preserve peace. This is a modifica
tion, or successor, to the famous ar
ticle X, which met with objection in
the U. S. The League has not yet
given up hope of so amending the
covenant that the U. S. can enter.
The situation in the East makes this
n.eeting of peculiar significance anJ
leads men to wonder how much it
can do to prevent another war.
While most of the European coun
tries are either bankrupt or finding
it hard to meet their debts, Great
Britain is making headway in meet
ing her obligations. Her debt to the
U. S. is already funded, and she is
about to pay a large sum in the form
of interest. It was feared that the
disturbances in the East would delay
or prevent this payment, but suca
does not seem likely to be the case.
It is said that fifty millions of dol
lars are already in the United States
ready to be paid at the proper time.
Such financial ability following so
costly a war is unprecedented and is
something tha? inspires confidence.
Fir8t Pc ls Kive" the news col
to the victory of Mustapha Re
mal, the Nationalist leader of Tur
key, in Asia. He seems to be a
leader of ability, more practical
than Ghandi, of India, or Lenine, of
Russia. He is a representative of
the young Turkey, of which so much
was expected. Any entrance by the
Turks into the neutral zone across
from the straits of Dardanelles and
Bosphorus has been prohibited by
England, smA.1t ta fctWed the Allies
are supporting ner. snips at
control the coast, but cannot prevent
the outrages being perpetrated in the
interior. It is reported that the Sul
tan. Mohammed, has abdicated, and
that political changes are taking
place in Turkey, but to just what end
is not clearly reported.
The Greek defeat at Smyrna has
led to a revolution in Greece, and the
King, Constantine, has been sent
from the country. A new king is in
his place, and the authority is exer
cised by a Revolutionary Committee.
It is reported that Venetelos, the
ablest man in Greece, is to be
brought back to a place of leadership
in his country. Whether he is to be
made prime minister or appointed to
act as the spokesman before the Al
lies of his country is not known.
Perhaps both tasks will be put upon
him. The refugee King, Constan
tine, will not be likely to suffer, as
he has been getting ready for such
an emergency and haa large sums of
money invested in safe places.
The memoirs of the former Ger
