The Monroe doctrine the prin ciple under which the nited State neither Joins in European entangle ments nor permits encroachments of nny foreign, power upon the Ameri- enn continent has been for a cen tury past an integral part of the United States policy. It was instill ed into us all at an early nge, side by side with the doctrines nnd catechism of our especial religious sect. The nation nt largo has a faint idea that it could get along without any one religious body, but it has n firm con viction, that tho Monroe doctrine is the sine qua non of America. Now the plan is for America to take her part'jiyn wider world nnd be come n member of the League of Nations. She is willing to do this and to help ensure peace upon earth if that is u possibility. But she docs not want to emulate the dog of the fable and drop a known and sure good in reaching out for a problema tical greater and indefinite one. The League of Nations for Amer ica and the .world! so far, so good. But first nnd foremost, a renewed recognition of the Monroe doctrine to safeguard the interests of America.
