This morning's newspapers condemn with great severity the system followed in Ireland. Some demand sternest measures of repression and hint at the desirability of imposing martial law in Ireland. Urge Stopping Reprisals. Those Journals which have adopt ed a strong stand against reprisals and hold the government largely re sponsible for these attacks by the uniformed forces, take occasion to renew their insistence that reprisals must be stopped. The London Times, for instance, while vehemently de nouncing the murders of the offi cers, expresses belief that the strength of the Irish executive would be ten times greater in this 'emer gency, "but for an army perilously undisciplined and a police force avowedly beyond control which havs 'defiled by heinous acts England's .nutation."

The possibility of American aid for the Armenians was touched upon in debate today ty the assembly of the league of na tlons on resolutions demanding In tervention by the leogue In Armenia.

Rene Viviani. of France, following Mr. Balfour, said all were agreed that compassion would no longer suffice for Armenia. "It Is not the fault of France 1( the league today is disarmed before the situation in Armenia is righted," s.tid M. Viviani. Virtually the entire assembly applauded this statement. It was noted, however, that the Brit ish delegation did not applaud. "If the conference had listened to Frsnce," continued M.
