Given Before Woman's Club by Mr?, Mead of Boston The Woman's club held a meeting Wednesday, Nov. 7, with one of tho most pleasing programs of the season. Mrs. Lucia Ames Mead of Boston, a writer and lecturer on International problems, spoke on "After tho War, What?" "Of 1,GOO,000,000 on earth, there are less than 100,000,000 not in some way engaged in tills world war. Whether the work of these 40,-000,000 soldiers shall achieve anything or come to naught depends chiefly on what civilians do between now and tho end of the war. Soldiers' work, preliminary, battering down a wall, others must clear away debris and got material and rear new structures for world organization. War can not end war. if Germany were.crushed there 'is no certainty that other nations might not afterwards fight. Witness the wars of the last 20 years and metamorphoses of alliances. If war stopped tomorrow there could be only an armed truce. Peace' means an organized living together among nations. There has been organized lining together in cities, in States, among States, but never among nations. Tho supreme task of the world Is tc plan for this now as an agreement for a league of nations as an integral part of the war settlement. Were such an agreement made by the Allies now with provision of admission of neutrals and later of Central Powers, it would profoundly affect the whole war settlement. Notice the Alsace-Lorraine-German colonies, the •protection of weak States, of high seas easier to adjust. This league would establish a world court and council oí conciliation."
