' For lilediation
President's Offer to Attempt
Arbitration Becrived With
Evidence of . Liveliest Sat
Geneva, Dec. lBy The Asso
ciated Press.) A letter to President
Wilson accepting his offer to act as
mediator in Armenia was being
drafted by the council of the'league
of nations here today. Mr. Wilson's
note, which was received thts morning,-
was read to members of the
council at 10:30 o'clock and was re
ceived with evidence of liveliest sat
isfaction. President Wilson's acceptance
created a great impression when it
was announced today,
"Poor old Europe will feel less
abandonment," was a remark made
by a member of the French delega
tion while discussing the matter. The
news gave the assembly great relief,
as Jhe Armenian question had be
come the bugbear of the assembly.
. Discuss Mediation Form.
There is much speculation, as to
what form the mediation of Armenia
will take. A. J. Balfour, a leader of
the.. British delegation, remarked to
the assembly the other day that in
order to negotiate it would be nec
essary to offer Mustapha Kemal,
chief of the Turkish nationalists,
something, either money orerri
tory, and this remark is recalled in
connection with Mr. Wilson's known
opposition to the disposition made
of some parts of the territory of Tur
key by the Sevres treaty.
Prediction is made here that, irf
the. end, the Greeks may pay the
pru lor saving wnat remains ot tne
"President Wilson's action is a big
step toward a solution of one of the
most serious problems before the as
sembly," was the way Lord Robert
Cecil characterized the American
president's acceptance. . . 1
Relieves Bad Situation.
"That is wonderful news," he de
clared when the information was
given him. "It brings relief to. all
of us who are trying to find a way
to ;help the Armenians out of the
difficulty. IXt. Wilson's acceptance
is commendable and worthy of the
best, traditions of the United States,
which have always been a friend of
Armenia and taken the lead in alle
viating its sufferings.-
"The decision of President Wilson
Is not in any sense political, from my
viewpoint, and cannot give encour
agement to all those who wish to see
the. ''United Stales jn, the league. It
is pimply a natjjfjfljidevelopment of

that Spain atid'Bfaiil had offered to
join' President-Wilson in his role of
Armenian mediator. This offer has
been enjftodied in the reply to Mr. ,
Wilson trained Jty the council. ,
J. he reply to the "American presi
dent, it was statedi expresses deep
appreciation .of the . president's ac-
ceptance. A he allied nigh commis
sioners at Constantinople, it says,
are being consulted as to the best
way for Mr. Wilson to proceed.
The council, it is added, believes
there will be no great difficulty
about .the president's mediators con
ferring with Mustapha Kemal Pasha,
the Turkish nationalist leader, who
has been making war upon the Ar
menians. The offer of Spain and Brazil to
join' in the mediation came during
this morning's session of the council.
That body left it to President Wil
son to decide .if he -desired this co
operation. After discussion of the note in the
council meeting this afternoon it
will go forward to Washington in
thcl- early evening.

Chicago, Dec. 1. Organized la
bor's' interest in educational facili

thorization of a committee by the
American Federation of Labor to
study the possibilities of a central
labor university, is evidenced in the
formation of trade union collges

In New York City he said the La

secured the co-operation of the

various unions there have united in

In Senatr Cummings' .opinion, the
problem is one that must be met by
the creation ot such sound and et
fective systems of credit and of mar
keting that the farmer can be placed
upon a footing of equality with other
producers and business men.
senator Cummins lias no laitli in
the ability of the farmers to form a
combination for. their own protec
tion such as has been suggested by
some of the other organizations, even
if thev were relieved of all the re
strictions of the anti-trust laws. Nor
does he believe that conditions can
be improved by any such course.
A combination ot farmers com
plete enough and strong enough to
control prices might easily become
a menace to the consuming public.
The first great need of the farm
ers, . Senator Cummii.s believes, is
a personal credit system, such as
exists in France, Belgium and other
European countries. He thinks that
possibly this might be provided by an
extension of the present farm loan
banks, but is inclined to believe that
an entirely separate organization
would prove more ettective.
The farm loan banks lend only
upon farm mortgages It the farm
er has mortgaged his land and is
still vthout money, he, cannot pro
ducea frop without assistance from
some banking institution and assist
ance in a large measure is withheld.
The farmers are charging the fed
eral reserve board with discrimi
nation against them because the
board is trying to reduce inflation
and has not directed that the banks
lend .directly to the farmers. As a
fact, the federal reserve board, while
it can restrict credit, is without any
power to compel the banks to ex
tend credit in any special direction.
Consequently- the Janvier finds that
the reserve system operates only to
make his own way more difficult,
without affording hiri the slightest
prospect of relief.
The farmers are not only selling
at less than production costs, but
they are compelled to seek credit up
on the basis of a falling market, with
constantly reducing values in the as
sets they have to off"r as security.

In Hotel Rome.
Morton L. Corey, ugistrar of the
Federal Land bank of Omaha, de
livered the principal address before
the weekly meeting of the Rotary
club, following their noonday lun
cheon in the Hotel Rome yesterdayi
His subject was "Financing the
"If the farmer wa adequately
financed he could oav his local mer
chants and retailers and they in turn
could take care of. .their obligations
with the wholesalers," Mr. Corey de
clared. He pointed out that by September
1 of this year bankers had every
reason to believe thai with the ar-
lival of the normal liquidation period
or tanners, their crops could be sold
rnd there could be a reasonable
liquidation all along the 1tne.
Farm Produce Held.
"The farmer, however." he con
tinued, "is generally refusing to
market his products. He feels that
he has raised the most expensive
crop in his experience, and that the
loss he is called upon to bear is
greater than his share. General
liquidation is dependent upon what
the farmer does and it is to be hoped
that prices may become shell soon
as to permit of his liquidating with
out taking more that: his share of
the loss. lhc tarmer as well as
every other busmesj man m this
period of depression is bound to suf
fer some loss.
"Some system should be devised
whereby the loss is fairly appor
tioned." Mr. Corey also discussed the fed
eral farm loan system', stating that
the Federal Land bank of Omaha
has placed loans amounting to $48,
000,000 among farmers in the states
of Nebraska, Iowa, South Dakota
and Wyoming in the three years of
its organization. i
Await Court Decision.
It has suspended business for the
past year pending the outcome of a
suit in the supreme court of the
United States, in which the Farm
Mortgage Bankers of America ques
tion the constitutionality $f the fed
eral farm loan act. As the funds
derived to make farm loans are from
the sale of bonds, he explained, they
cannot be sold until the constitution
ality of the law is decided. '
A decision is expected December
6 when the supreme court will again
be in session. The effect of the oper
ation of farm loan banks, Mr. Corey
explained, has been to reduce the
average interest on farm loans at
least 1 per cent throughout the
United States. If the law is disaf
firmed by the supreme judges, it
will mean that the farmers of the
United States will have to pay an
additional $40,000,000 interest , on
their loans, he said. -;-
