An Unofficial Frenchman's View of the European Situation

A few words on Comparative Literature, and the speaker's travels throughout Europe. France and England animated fundamentally by the same ideas: Order and Liberty and Order with Liberty. Co-operation between England and France hampered by many difficulties. Issues with regard to the ability of the League of Nations to prevent war. With the idea of collaboration comes the question of the various countries in the League and the knotty problem presented by the conflict in Ethiopia. Mussolini's accomplishments and intentions. An anecdote told to the speaker by Clemenceau. Mussolini's enterprise in Ethiopia a startling breach of agreements among the nations of the League. The League's inaction. Not a League of any nations but a League of some nations. Italy and France's fault that Ethiopia was brought into the League. What is a nation. Some speculation as to what might happen in France, in Italy, and in Ethiopia.
