By EX-PRESIDENT WM. H. TAFT.
The chief purpose of the League of
Km ions is to keep the werld in a state
of peace. Another way of expressing
It is to say that the League is de
signed to prevent wars.
We have just finished the greatest,
which is to say the most horrible, of
ell conflicts between nations. We
have won a glorious victory. But-that
vie-tory will be wasted ur.less this war
has made the nations ready to put
aside their differences and co-operate
to end war forever.
It Is not enough, however, to provide
for the prevention of wars and the
settlement of disputes after they have
arisen. We must foresee causes nt
trouble and remove them before they
have reached nn acute stage. Hence,
there must be provision for frequent
consultations of members of tbe
League for exchange of information,
for agre-ement on common policies and
for the gradual formation of rule of
international law which at present are
uncertain and incomplete.
The representatives of the great free
rations which won the war have met
at Paris mid, after Uflg consultation,
have drawn an agreement which they
believe will accomplish these ends. At
the very leat it will net in motion
great eJianges which will result in uni
versal benefit to all mankind. This
agreement Is called the Covenant of
the League of Nations and it is a part
of tbe peace treaty. j
There will be no League worth talk
ing about, however, unless the United
State's is a member. The decision as
to whether the United States shall join
rests with our Senate. The Senators,
chosen by the people, will in the end
Tote as the people desiiV. For this
reason the people themselves will de
cide whether or not the United States
will join the League. In this question
every -citizen should have a voice. He
or she can express opinion either by
writing diree-t to Senators, by letters
to the newspapers, by speeches In hia
lodge or local union or in conversation
with friends. f
