'Greet Britain, whose historic natnil
j supremacy would eventually give way
? to at! equality of strength with tha

British acceptance In a speech thgf
stirred the emotions of delegates and

j which diplomatic < ard? were laid on tht
table In a manner unprecedented in
[ International conferences.
WhfTe the hall still eehoad with

Doubt was expressed In some quar
