The League of Nations
What It Is Points of Vital Interest
to the Woman Voter
1. The League of Nations it a union ot the countries of the world, bound together to protect
one another. Today 37 nations belong all the prlnclial ones EXCEPT? MEXICO. THE UNITED
STATES AND BOLSHEVIST RUSSIA. Former enemy powers are soon to be admitted.
2. The League alms to settle disputes between nations by LAW Instead of by WAR; grad
ually to reduce armies and navies by general agreement; to make treaties public so that the cltisen
may know what their governments are doing; and to better labor conditions and the welfare of
women and children everywhere.
3. The League carries out Ita purpose through three agencies; 1) an Assembly of three dele
gates from each member nation, where questions are discussed and suggestions offered; (I) a
Council of nine representatives (of whom the United Stales la to have one.) which inquires into the
cause of disputes, gives advice for their peaceful settlement, and la the real governing body to the
League; (3) a Court of Permanent Justice in which tangles between nations are straightened out.
On all vital poInU the vote In the Assembly and Council must be unanimous.
4. The League pledgee its members to make use of some one of these agencies Instead of going
to war whenever dispute arise between them or between one n atiou and a nation outside of the
League. glx months are given for investigation and report Not until three months ' after that
(time for cooling off!) may a nation go to war and not then it one of the nations In the quarrel ac
cepts the recommendations made.
5. The League also pledges its members to respect one another's boundaries and protect them
from external attack. Thie clause. Article X (denounced by Republicans) Is only a form of mutual
self-defense to take the place of the huge national armies and navies which the League seeks to limit.
Article X does not apply to domestle troubles, such as the effort of subject peoples to gain self
government. - x,
6. The League binds It member to punish any nation which goes to war In spite ot the
League's rules by entirely cutting off the outlaw from all trade and Intercourse. The League Council
may (by unanimous vote) "advise" armed force, but each government In its own way must declare
its willingness to supply soldiers and munitions. In other words no American boy can be sent
abroad to wage war for the League except by a declaration ot war by Congress as our Constitution
provides. And first, within the League itself, the United States by Its own vote may veto any pro
posal of war which it does not approve. '
7. The League of Nations Is the only practical working plan for World Peace. It means LIFE
lire for the young sous ot the mothers now living, and life for the sons ot mothers who come
after us. .

The circumstances ot the parable
of the Unrighteous Steward and the
reasons for It are not so obvious as
ar those ot the parables ot the Lost
Sheep, the Lost Piece of Money, and
the Prodigal Son, as reported in the
preceding chapter. Those three par
ables were told, apparently, unmis
takably for the especial benefit of
the Pharisees, to show them why
Jesus was so deeply Interested in sin
ner. Although the fourteenth verse of
this alxteenth chapter shows that
there were at 111 Pharisees around,
Jesua addresses this parable of the
Unrighteous Steward "also unto the
disciples." Among these disciples at
this time was probably a considerable
sprinkling of tax gatherers (publi
cans) and other rich men ot that
class and evidently It was especially
to these that the paarble waa direct
ed. That Is, It waa spoken to men
who were generally considered to
have acquired their money In ways
that were questionable to say the
Before proceeding we must con
sider that although the methods of
these men were so questionable aa to
make them unpopular, Indeed almost
outcasts from the best Jewish society,
nevertheless there waa still deeply
rooted the old Jewish idea that pov
erty, along with other kinds of suf
fering or misfortune, was evidence
that the victim waa under the dis
pleasure of God on account ot some
sin of himself or bis ancestors. The
teasonlng ot joue com toners snows
us the philosophy of the Jews on this
Consequently there would be a sort
of underlying feeling that after all
men who had bent all their energies
to acquiring a competence that would
make them Independent were at least
to be regarded as of more worth than
they would have been bad they al
lowed themselves to be overwhelmed
by a poverty so great as to make
fnem dependent upon others for sus
tenance. At least, would think their
neighbors, God had let them prosper,
so they must hot be so very bad.
Then we must remember, too, that
God's revelations of Himself, His
love, His holiness, have never been
entirely above the reach of some
men in every age to comprehend.
Jesus, In the final, consummate, reve
lation, was always using the common,
everyday experiences of the life hts
hearers knew to teach the eternal
truths. And In this remarkable par
able that has caused so much trouble
He is illustrating one of thegrand-
est truths of all from a phase of life
wtth which the very men He was talk
ing to would be most familiar. These
men were ot characters weakened by
life-long familiarity with crime, and
their views of all transactions were
limited by their own selfish habits.
We must bear in mind also that
men Wfr. mill under the old rtUnen-
sation, or. just In process ot finer ;
Ing from uuder It. The new was but
in the coming. Jeus was Illustra
ting something of what the new dis
pensation meant, and He was doing It
so His hearers would understand
Him. He had not yet died upon jh
cross of sin. The holiness ot God's
love, the awfulns of sin's sway
were still tc be signalized on Calva
ry's mound, what time the veil ot the
temple was rent and the earth quak
ed and the rocks were split and
tombs opened, while the sun's light
failed and there waa the landwide
darkness that preceded the light that
waa to reach the world's darkest cor
ner In the fulneae ot time.
The sharp ateward In the parable
waa feathering his nest for the future
by means of what we would call
graft of a very mean sort. But In
doing so he was living according to
his distorted light. Poverty meant
to him something worse thun did ale
honesty. Jesus was not commending the cun
ning man for his worldly trick, but
using him and hi astuteness as .n il
lustration ot one particular lesson lie
was Impressing upon those about
Him. There was no danger that they
would err by supposing Jeaus to
praise the steward's trick. They would
not notice that part ot the story at
all. They were all too familiar with
that sort of rascality, and would cer
tainly require no teaching along that
No. the point they would be Im
