With the funiing and splut- tering of certain noisy Senators across Ihe border over ibe League of Nations, re. In Canada, may be iaclined to that the views expressed by them are those of tbe American people' as a -whole. Tin view of this, U is reJrejhlQg to note that p.ll Americans 'do nol (.fa ihere are those, wlio be jaw to be of the big majority, who bare an intelligent understanding of things as they really are. Wiltf this fact in mind, we place before our readers Uie true conception of the league of Nations, stated by "an American journal, to offset Iba campaign of 'prejudice against H which is waged, by certain Senators. msy be'those who conversaal with the terms of tiie covenant of the League ot Nations hi retard to contention loudly Voiced orer Lhe border' that in ,lhe TbLes .'allotted the' self-goTeming Do- tie British Empire holds-the predominating.. part! In toe. roles" at Scn- vote in the League, the American pub- llcallon proceeds lo show bow idle the (ears of the clamorous Senators are in to what they assert Is Ihe minority vole o( the L'ntted Stales. It draws attention to tbe fact tbat In the League Is what is known as the Council of tho League which, we should Imagine, was a mat- ter of common knowledge which should be shared by iho U. S. Sen- ators. This knowledge is clearly Izld down by ihe Dally Gaictto when It says that "couucil is ihe body that decides all questions submitted 10 the League of Nations as we understand It. The council ts made up ol fire great cations. The United Stal-s, England, France. Haly and Japan COT.- s tit ule ibis governing board th-j League of Nations, Aud In this council each country has Just one vo'.o. five votes Hi all. England may bare sis s In ihe assembly but she has just one vote aufl the United Slates Jusi one vote when any official action Is taken in the League ol Natrons. So while may hste more noise in the assembly lhan the I'uiicd tSaies because o[ sis lalkers she has bui one vote in the councl when action is taken.
