In the article Professor Sullivan
discusses the status of Inheritance

today found the British lion ready
to go the limit in applying sanctions against Italy.
With Rome dispatches indicating
it is now a matter of only a few
days before Premier Mussolini will
order his men to invade Ethiopia
and with the League of Nations
ready to convene at a moment's

Italy if 11 Duce should attack Ethiopia, Britain stood ready to carry
out her pledge to the League to

With the same secretiveness and
the same display of quiet power
with which the British air and

northern entrance to the Suez
