"Facts are stubborn things.”
Another conference for the limitation of armaments is proposed. The protocol for the Pacific Settlement of International Disputes, subscribed to at Geneva by the League of Nations Assembly representatives of forty-seven nations, called for a limitation of armament conference to be held in Geneva in June, 1925. It was not held. The Congress of the United States in a recent appropriation bill, requested the American President to call another conference, to take up the work unfinished by the Washington Conference. It has not yet been held, or convoked. Very recently, the League of Nations has invited all nations, including the United States, and even Soviet Russia, to send representatives to confer at Geneva to arrange the preliminaries of a limitation of armament conference which it is hoped by the League will be comprehensive in its treatment of that great subject.
