CITY IOWA MONDAY APRIL 7 1930 UNITED PRESS AND INTERNATIONAL NEWS SUPPLEMENTAL SERVICE NO 154 Hand of Bankers Parley Move May Be Directed By Fi nanciers By CHAHLES I STEWART ASHINGTON April 7 CPA Even in a peace dove greed can overreach itself At the time the London naval conference met the dove seemed practically sure of American en trance into the world court any way Uncle Sams adherence to the court already was diplomati cally pro vided for It remained only for the sen ate to ratify the bargain That the votes to ratify it were available was generally ad mitted tho Senator Hiram W Johnson of California archfoe of such entanglements and a few oth ers did promise a desperate fight first In itself this was a pretty good clawful for the peace dove It did not satisfy the dove how ever and in grabbing for more who can tell if the unduly impatient bird has not lost its previouslyac quired prey overboard A CERTAIN amount of peril for the dove was inseparable from the London conference but there need not have been a great deal of it if the dove had been wary and not too much inclined to rush mat ters The minute it became apparent that the five powers represented at the conference postively were not going to get together upon a genu ine armamentreduction or limita tion agreement the doves cue was to supervise the conferees concur rence in some sort of a specious looking imitation of one to foo the public until a more favorable occa sion and beat it for home as fast as its wings could carry it Instead of that the illadvised creature hung on fluttering aim around for so long that even arrived Ut ivould have met with a suspici ous and finally commit ted the crowning folly of making a despairing swipe at a consultative pact worm very possibly as hith erto remarked losingits grip on its world court talonful in doing so course says Senator John vy son who unquestionably is the foremost authority on the antien tanglement issue all such pro posals as world court entrance and consultative pacts are intended equally to get ua ultimately into the league of nations The world court method how ever has been so thoroly propagand ized I hat the public thru familiarity has lost its fear of it The consultative pact scheme being new is more obvious People still see thru it and popular re action to it is correspondingly hos tile which may have a similar col lateral effect on the world court program Anyhow it undoubtedly has increased the sensitiveness of prowold court senators to attacks on it AN explanation is also beginning to evolve itself in Washington to account for the evident very pecu liar conflict in ideas between the white house and Americas repre sentatives in London concerning the consultative pact proposition The consultative suggestion ac cording to dispatches from the Brit ish capital originally was Delegate Dwighl W Morrows inspiration hypothetical explanation in volves big banking in the situation DMITS KILLINGS Bitte
