Dr. McVey Says Acceptance
Monroe Doctrine Century Old.
"What do wo moan by tho Monroo
Doctrino? Do wo mean tho establishin tho western
ment of a super-stathemisphere? Then tho league opposes
it as does everything American. The
year 1824 is nearly a century gone. So
far as we are concerned, in tho
of South America, tho Monroe
Doctrino means our control of the
Caribbean Sea and tho territory we
now occupy, with tho understanding
that Canada remain as sho Is. Our
idea is that America be kept free from
European colonization and Article X
of tho league seems to provide that all
nations in the league have adopted the
same principles to protect their territory. It in no way cuts across the doctrine as wo understand it.
"The Important thing the league is
trying to do is to make sovereignty respect the reign of law, which Germany
failed to do. Any treaty which we
make compromises our sovereignty, by
binding us not to make war or peace
except under certain conditions, as it
was compromised in the acceptance
of tho opendoor policy.
"We must take our choice between
a balance of power, a League of Na
tions, or anarchy, such as now prevails
in Russia. We must have some power
to carry out treaties or a balance of
power such as has been the bane of
Europe for a hundred years. We may
find that the League of Nations can
not be worked out and be forced into
a group of
which would mean the division of the
world such as prevailed in the fifteenth
"If the league is repudiated, there
will follow a financial panic and a
scramblo for territory.
I do not see
how the United States, under any cir
cumstances, can withdraw from the
other nations, and make a separate
peace with the powers. We have com
mitted ourselves in Europe, and must
take part In the settlement.
"Mr. Lodge says the United States
Senate should have been consulted in
the making of the league. It was not
made by Mr. Wilson, but by a committee of four, of which he was a member. The Senate, under the constitution, does not act until tho stage of
ratification Is reached, as Mr. Lodge
himself said in a speech in the Senate February 2S. The Senate's function is that of approval or disapproval
after the pact has been agreed upon
by tho President and the chancellors
of the other countries.
"This league is not a panacea. It
only attempts to bring to pass some
machinery whereby some of the
world's problems may bo solved. It
moans to develop the habit of peaceful settlement and makes war more
difficult, altho it may not prevent it entirely. If it can bring about a protection of small countries in their territory and a reduction of armament, it
will have justified its existence.
"This is not a political question, but
one of national honor, and it is our
duty to look at it in a big way. Tho

D. McVey spoko at tho World Forum
Thursday afternoon on "Tho League of
President McVey said in part:
"Tho United States must take its
choice between a balanco of power
such as has been the bano of Europe
for a hundred years, or a League of
Nations as proposed by Wood row
Wilson and tho representatives
Great Britain, Franco and Italy.
"The United States of America is a
League of Nations. Tho quarrels between the colonies were quite as bitter
as those now evident across the sea.
The constitution of the United States
was formed slowly and gradually. It
takes time to organize any kind of constitutional government.
"The League of Nations is a covenant consisting of a preamble and
twenty-siarticles drawn by President
Wilson and a representative
France, Great Britain and Italy. It
was accepted unanimously by the representatives of the fourteen nations to
whom it was submitted.
meeting of representatives of all accredited nations, a permanent international secretariat, and an executive
council composed of representatives
of the five principal nations and four
of the other states. An international
bureau for the registration of all existing treaties and those made in the
future, and the abolition of agreements
destructive to the purpose of the
League are also provided for. Provision is made for amendments with the
of the states.'
"The League of Nations is a covenant with a rigid system of international power. It provides a continual
means of discussion; opportunity for
new international agreements to prevent the disturbance of peace, and for
the common treatment of world problems in a periodical round table. The
great object is to take diplomacy out
of the hands of secret agencies by the
creation of a permanent secretarial.
If tho League of Nations with this object had existed in 1914, even in a
more Imperfect form than that proposed, there would have been no war.
"The document is simple, providing
for a body of delegates, an executive
council and a permanent secretarial.
Back of it is the armed force of tho
nations in the league to carry out its
"The objections to the league are
four that it moans a breakdown in tho
traditional policy of tho United States;
that it threatens tho Monroo Doctrine;
that tho sovereign powers of tho
United States aro compromised and
that tho league should como only aftor

"Tho traditional policy of the United
States, set forth by Washington, was
