Consequently her subsequent intervention on behalf of the league was not the outcome of a straightforward policy but due to new mysterious Domestic factors. He adds that this last must be clearly understood by league supporters throughout the world and cannot be brushed aside by ready made phrases. European talks Signor Mussolini meanwhile is Refus ing to contemplate Italy s participation in a suggested round table conference with Germany regarding larger euro Pean issues including armament pro grammes which France and Britain Are seeking to arrange.
