Tbe League of Nations has been inspired by democratic principles, and t�e s^bility of the Covenant is thereby ensured. The League aims at the prsseryMtiop of peace not only in a militar^r but in a economic seuse. It deals, consequently, with the problems of labor in their iniernau'onal bearing. For this purpose what is aptly Ottlled the 'Charter of International Labor" baa been embodied in the League. This chartser lays down the principle which will meet with universal approval that the labor of a human being is.not a commodity. Based on  this principle are laid ^ dowti- nine clauses wbicb are intended, with the principles underlying them, to govern tti�r-hlbor policy of all countries. Boiled down the nine points in the phuiter of Labor, which Unds the pot if:f at the nations in regard to tbe employment of ttbor, are the proteo. tlon of Chlldr^n-tuider fourteen so thai they'&ftV not lose the opportunities of Aducation and a further protection een oon.
