Publicity of any sort, however, will be re sisted for many reasons. One reason that will be Riven in Rood faith is that open discussions will result in Interminable delays. Statesmen it will be uigued. will not work toward rapid results If they are required to work in the open; instead, they will devote their time to speech making and otherwise to impressing onlookers. But we will have that period of speech-making to (jo thru, anyhow. If not during the conference, then after it is over. From the time the delegates at Paris completed their work there has been nothing but speech-making, an far an the United States is concerned. It isn't ended yet. Wouldn't it be as well in the case of the disarmament conference, to dear the air as we go along and let the senators and others get their speeches out of their Hystems while the conference continues? There is no presidential election to tempt men into false positions this time. t There are certain publishing interests in America which apparently will not be happy until the I'nited States has another war with somebody—Mexico preferred, but if a little fellow cannot be found to fight, then England. If the disarmament con ference is veiled in secrecy, what character of news may we expect from these pub lishing interests? The conference cannot deny alarmist stories as fast as they can be manufactured; the conferees will have other work to do, while the alarmists will ■take the dissemination of alarm their whole business for the time being. In the interest of its own success the disirmament conference should be as op*-n as the day. Giving Them Time *Ch« them time."
