Gorman and Wallace are two of their fastest players, and are expected to keep the ball down in Sigma Nu territory most of the time. The only men of much basketball experience on the S. A. E. team are Rogers and Wood. In the goal shooting of Rogers lies the greatest hope that S. A.

Sho lias reached tho point wliero sho is tho most powerful LEAGUE OF NATIONS nation in tho world in finance, resources and in many other ways, so BEST WAR PREVENTIVE that sho cannot avoid touching elbows with tho rest of tho world, nor escape tho problems facing it. 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 t 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 nations which would mean the division of the world such as prevailed in the fifteenth century. "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. National Honor. "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 lcaguo is not perfect, but it has Has anything hotter boon offered? "April 0, 1917, wo accopted a responsibility. Our ontry into tho war settled tho matter of our participation in tho affairs of Europe. Are wo now to disappoint tho world? It is easy to oppose tho lcaguo, but it is our duty to viow-poin- English-speakin- Our National Honor; League Not a Panacea. Concerns D. McVey spoko at tho World Forum Thursday afternoon on "Tho League of Nations." 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 of 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 from 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. Meetings Continual. be a 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 consent of 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 purpose. Four Objections. "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 peace is made. "Tho traditional policy of the United States, set forth by Washington, was ono of tho ablest doctrines in our his tory. But many things have takon placo since tho day of Washington. In his day wo had tho possibility of avoiding international outanglomonts, being ninety days Journey from Europe. Whon wo took tho Philippine Islands wo ontorod International politics, aa policy whon wo adopted tho in tho East.
