Mr. E. S. Martin, whose editorial page in Life is

always so well worth reading, deals in the last issue to hand with America's attitude towards the League. He refers to the recent utterances of Senator Pepper, who told a Philadelphia audience that "some day there would be an association of all nations of the world with ,a common basis of organization in so far as all face the same problems, but with divisions corresponding to the Eastern and Western hemispheres." Mr. Martin's comment on this suggestion was as follows: "The idea of divisions in it (the League), one for the Eastern and one for the Western hemisphere, may become practical when it is worked out."
