Lord Cecil and Disarmament In the Third' Committee of the

League Assembly on Thuriday,' September 19th, 'Lord Cecil introduced a resolution raising several points In regard to land disarma- ment. Throughout a three:days' debate he had to contend against the almost universal criticism that he was trespassing on the sphere of the Preparatory Commission for the Disarmament Conference. He retorted very reasonably that he wail no trespasser and that no harm could be done by informing the Preparatory Commission about the feeling on certain subjects—particularly in regard to the trained reserves. In form, nevertheless, Lord Cecil was compelled to' give way. Last Saturday M. Politis, the Greek representative, presented a resolu- tion which was unanimously accepted in place of Lord Cecil's.
