Says Time for Disarmament
Not Yet Arrived
cent: VA. Not *o.—"The hour
for universal disarmament has not
yet arrived." M La Fontaine. Bel
glen delegate, declared today. In ad
dressing tha asaembly of tha league
of nations In public seaalon.
La Fontaine maintained that the
economic situation is tha moat inv
pnrtant confronung tha world. In
stating upon the right of the league
U> "reat upon the strength of tha
Sat tonal armies which are at Its dis
position: then It will tto at tha
Merry of no one."
The question of how the league of
nations will meet fiermany's threat
to disregard the clauae of the treaty
of Versailles. Involving allocation of
bar colonies under various man
dates. occupied much of the atten
tlon of the league assembly today.
While none of the delegates would
consent to be quoted, the Impres
sion seemed to be general that under
present conditions the league would
have to depend solely upon economic
pressure to compel Germany's
acknowledgement of the binding na
ture of the pact.
That this would be efficacious waa
regarded as certain, owing to Ger
many's peculiar vulnerability In this
direction at this particular time.
A» the situation now stands, !-»
Fontaln* said, discussing disarma
ment. the league Is composed of 42
Wtates with armies numbering mil
lions. and yet is unable to save
Armenia. He denyrttded formation of
an international general staff and
tmiltsdUre employment of an Inter
national force, under the league In
behalf of Armenia, "thereby demon
strating to the world the effective
ness of the league."
Disarmament not being possible
now, the members' armlee and navies
should be placed at the disposition
of the league to form the basis for
an International force under the
league. La Fontaine said.
His remarks were greeted with
tremendous applause.
