WASHINGTON — THE SATISFAC -TORY .Sen,ito S ;b-C rnmltte Coni promise on a p si war resolution e-volverl from an entirely different one which was carried around by foreign i*bi!Son> Chairman Connally rn his inside pocket for the past two weeks
The t* x? of that original resolution was no made public, but it was supposed to represent what State Secretary of State Hull has in mind.
Basically, it proposed an interna'ion-al orga.ni/.ation along the lines, of the League of nations empowered to im-po-e what diplomatic phraseology ti call “ec'.nemic and military sanctions'* en non-conformist nations or aggressors
"Sanctions' is a word dripping with honey but. it means the use of force Economic sane'ion* would be embargo* against wrms f'od. or O'her products to offender* Military sanctions means armed invasion This would be a League of Nations with teeth in it, using bayonets for teeth
There are men inside the senate who suspect Connelly of craftily sounding out each individual senator for the admi ids’ration en this proposition I Orations which has been .seldom mentioned in public discussion. Mr Hull, for instance, has only gory in his peeches as far, as saying osne sort of power mwst be used to k»** p the peace.
