Mr. Kellogg in his latest Note to France on the

out- lawing of war objects both to the suggestion that a pact between America and France might be signed in advance of pacts with other nations and to the suggestion that the outlawry should be confined to " aggressive " war. Mr. Kellogg's first objection seems to be very. reasonable. If a pact were concluded privately between America and France it might be found quite unacceptable by other nations. We all want to know what is being proposed before anybody is committed, in order that as many of us as possible may join in.
