favor qf an unqual fled antiwar treaty between the great powers of the world Secretary Kel oss said In an address here last night that If the principal nations are united in a sincere desire for such a compact a formula could be devised acceptable to all The secretary spoke before i the council on foreign relations and took for his subject the war prevention policy of the United States and the treaties and proposed treaties which had been advanced in favor of world peace He coupled his advocacy of an anti war treaty with tho emphatic state ment that the American government will not become a party to any agree ment which directly or Indirectly ex pressly or by Implication is a military Hopes for Success Mr Kellogg expressed the hope that the present negotiations with France which have as their object the con clusion ot a general antiwar treaty would besuccessful ultimately The common people of the world were o one mind he believed In their desire to see the abolition of war as an in stitutlon and he pledged himself both personally and officially always to support and advocate the conclusion of appropriate treaties for arbitra tion for conciliation and for the re uniclatlon ot war I must not he said that xeaties of arbitration and concilla ion or eventreaties expllctly re instrument of na i guar anty against those conflicts between nations which have periodically broken out since the dawn of history In addition to treaties there must aroused public conscience against the utter horror and of war The peoples of the world must enjoy a peaceful mind as it has been said and treaties such as I have dis cussed and the eftorcs of statesmen to advance tho cause of world peace can only be regarded ns a portion of he problem I am not so blind as to believe that the millennium has ar rived but I do believe that the world s making great strides toward the pacfio adjustment of International dis Cant Pledge Forces Explaining that in the present reaty negotiations it was the pur pose of the UnitedStates in so far is possible to eliminate was as a fac or in International relations Mr Kellogg said the United States cannot obligate Itself in advance to use Its armed forces against any other nation of the world The United States does not believe that the peace of the ivorld or ot Europe depends upon or can be assured by treaties of military alliance the futility of which as guarantors of peace is repeatedly dem onstrated in the pages ot history he said The arbitration treaty with France recently ratified by the senate as well as other treaties were discussed at length by Dr Kellogg who said it was difficult for him to see by what claims a government could properly request arbitration of disputes covered by the four exceptions stipulated in the treaty including the Monroe doctrine since few if any would present ques tlons justifiable in their nature Only One Other Form I know of but one other form of treaty which can be concluded for the purpose ot preventing continued Mr Kelfoga and that Is a treaty in which the parties specifically bind themselves not to resort to war TURN TO PAGE 16 COLUMN 8 BREAD LINE FORMS IN FLOOD AREA Total Deaths MEXICAN SHOT AT
