every member of the league council except Italy was marked by wrangling between An thony Eden British foreign secre tary and PierreEtienne Flandin French foreign minister Eden insisted that the committee of 13 through Salvador de Mad ariaga its president should be linked with all peace negotiations because the Ethiopians have an nounced that they will refuse any direct contact with Italian

should remain in Geneva Flandin opposed his motion A compromise was reached by which the committee will meet next Thursday To Demand Action The impression which prevailed in league circles was that if by that date there were no indications of peace within a reasonable period or that negotiations showed no hope of succeeding because of Italian op j position the British would demand new and drastic action I Not an hour can be I said Eden opposing an indefinite j adjournment of the committee and acceptance by de Madariaga of Premier Mussolinis invitation for him to go to Rome if he wanted to talk
