deeper chaos, from which America
can hardly escape entirely.
Those who were most against the
treaty and the league of nations
were the (icrmms. the extreme

Bolshevists. Those who have Just
killed the teraty however, sincere

causes for great rejoicing:.
IyHilt Hack n Year!
Nans maintains that the treaty
or the league was perfect. 1!ut
everyone knows In his heurt thut
it waa a better treaty and sanction
than was hoped for one year ago.
Just one year ago and a little
more. America and the world were
holding their breath at what was
happening in France.
We were vowing to fiod that If
peace were vouchsafed us, that
thing which was destroying the
world had already swept away so
many millions of men. should never
come again. The ruins of France
and Italy still were smoking. ]
Our men were dying by thous- j
and* In the Argnnne and along j
other fronts to save the world, and !
It was saved.
All Others Approve
I waa present when David Lloyd
CJeorge laid the treaty of peace on
the table of the house of commons
and declared that the league or
natlotm waa the only means of
future safety in sight, and that he
oould not Imagine how any "••risi-
ble man could oppoje It being fully
Hlnce that time the treaty has
been approved by all the allies.
But the senate of the U. 8. has
rejected alike the treaty and the
league of nations. Thus the U. 8.
and China stand out alone agalnsl
the treaty and the league. China
may have a defensible reason but
what reason have we?
If the treaty did not protect
America, then human intelligence
hka no sound basis.
Europe is in a condition border

to bring order there. The first
