LONDON NAVAL CONFERENCE
Universal peace would not consti-
tute in itself Utopia, but it would be
a vast step forward toward that ideal
The significance of peace to the
world is far reaching, involving many
benefits. Various attempts have been
made from time to time in the direc-
tion of world peace. Not necessarily
a sweeping endeavor, but attempts at
gradual lessening of armaments have
The Conference for Naval Iimita-
tion recently ended in London, is the
most recent step along the long, diffi-
cult road toward world peace. It was
not the intention of the conference to
outlaw naval fighting forces, but to
reduce and limit them.
The hope of the United States and
England was for a five power pact
between the United States, England,
France, Italy and Japan. France and
Italy, however, proved the dissenting
parties and the result was a three
power pact between the United States,
England and Japan.
The reductions agreed to at the con-
ference lessened by several thousand
tons the total tonnage of the three
navies, resulting in a vast savings to
the citizens of the three nations. The
ratios in the various classes of fighting
ships remained practically the same
as those agreed to in the Viiashington
Conference, although the total tonnage
in each division was decreased. The
notable changes were made in the
ratio of the United States and Eng-
land, in the eight inch gun cruiser
class and in the submarine ratio with
The conference, to many of those
interested, did not result in as com-
plete a limitation as was hoped for.
No additional nations entered the
pact, which is regrettable, but even
the limiting and reducing of the naval
forces of the three naval powers of
the world sets an example to be fol-
lowed. NVe can not expect to attain
complete harmony and complete dis-
armament in one sweeping move but
each such step is a step forward.
XVhen the dissenting nations realize
that those who formed the treaty are
sincere in their intentions, when they
have become satisfied that the move-
ment will be beneficial to all, then,
but not until then, Will they become
Suspicion of a supremacy of power
is the root of the evil and when the
nations come to realize that the leaders
are not endeavoring to limit their
fighting forces with a view to such
supremacy in mind then they, too, will
lend their cooperation. Time is the
element to be reckoned with. Thou-
sands of years of national jealousy and
suspicion must be broken down before
we can expect full accord to a disarma-
ment plan, but each such conference
as the London Conference, serves as
a battering ram to weaken that wait
