MOO,GOO PEACE FLAN
Advocates Entering World Court and Cooperation With* League
Without Full Membership at Present—Suggests League Mem
bership Be Opened to All Nations and Provides for
Development of International Law. «■
The American Peace Award brought forth 22,165 plans
and many thousands of letters. Since many of the plans were
the composite work of organizations, universities, etc., a single
plan ofteyi represented the views of hundreds or thousands of
individuals. The content of these plans is therefore an index
of the true feeling and judgment of hundreds of thousands of
These plans come from every group
in American life. Some are obviously
from lifelong students of history and
international law. Some are from per
sons who have studied little, hut who
have themselves seen and felt the
horror of war—or who are even,now
living out its tragedy.
But among them all are these dom
inant currents: that, if war is hon
estly to be prevented, there must be
a face about on the part of the nations
in their attitude toward it; that by
some progressive agreement the man
ufacture and purchase of the muni
tions of war must be limited or stop
ped; that while no political mechan
ism alone will insure cooperation
among the nations, there must be
some machine; y of cooperation if the
will to <•()■.orate is to be made effec
tive; 111:i‘ mutual counsel among the
nation.; tm- .cal hope for bringing
about the disavowal of war by the
open avov.ml of its real causes and
open ii; s of them; and finally
tha: thi’ia1 • m,t be some means of
definuiv. r inling, interpreting and
dev> m: ihe law of nations.
Statement of Jury of Award
The Jury of Awrard realizes that
there is no one approach to world
peace, and that it is heressary to rec
ognize not merely political but also
psychological and economic factors.
The only possible pathway to Inter
national agreement with reference to
these complicated and difficult fac
tors is through mutual counsel and
cooperation which the plan selected
contemplates. it is therefore the
unanimous opinion of the Jury that
of the 22.16') plans submitted, Plan
Number 14 69 is “the best practicable
plan by which the United States may
co-operate with other nations to
achieve and preserve the peace of the
It fs the unanimous hope of the Jury
that the first fruit of the mutual coun
sel and cooperation among the nations
which will result from the adoption of
the plan selected will be a general
prohibition of the manufacture and
sale of all materials of war.

The Question to Be Voted Upon

Committee as follows:
I. ENTER THE PERMANENT COURT '
That the United States adhere to the Permanent Court, of Interna
tional J : tic.' : or-the r :;>ons and under the conditions stated by Secre
tary Hughes and President Harding in February, 1923.
II. COOpIRATE WITH THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS. WITHOUT
FULL MEMBERSHIP AT PRESENT
That without 1 . • liiig a mein In r of the League of Nations as at

In uniting its efforts with those of other States for the preser
vation of peace and the promotion of the common welfare, the
United States insi.-'s upon the safeguarding of the Monroe Doc
trin and does not abandon its traditional attitude concerning
Anv nean indepenih nee of the Old World and does not consent to
submit its long esta'o’i.-iied policy concerning questions regarded
by it as purely American to the recommendation or decision of
No Military or Economic Force
2. That the only kind of compulsion whiirtl nations can freely engage
to apply to each other in the name of Peace is that which arises
from conference, from moral judgment, from full publicity, and
from the power of public opinion.
The United States would assume uo obligations under Article X
in its present form, or under Article XVI in its present form in the
Covenant, or in its amended form as now proposed, unless in any
particular case cour.u'fs uas nuiuui ubu sum utuuu.

Treaty of Versailles unless in »uy'particular case Congress has

State that wishes to join and that receives the favorable vote of
two-thirds of the Assembly

5. As a condition of i*s particij ..-a in the work and counsels of the
League, the United States asks that the Assembly and Council con
sent—or obtain authority -to begin collaboration for the revision
and development of iiu au-mal law. employing for this purpose
the aid of a commission of ju. . Us. This Commission would be
directed to formulate -mew existing rub's of the law of nations, to
reconcile divergent opinions, to consider points hitherto inade
quately provided for but vital to the maintenance of international
justice, and in general to dUiue the social rights and duties of
States. The recommendations of the Commission would tfe pre
sented from time to tin ", in proper form for consideration, to the
Assembly as to a recommending if not a law-making body.

Plan To Finance
“One of our ambitions has
been nearly realized” remarked
Mr. J. C. Jones,Field Representa
tive of the N. C. Cotton
Growers Association, a few days
ago. “Since the association
was first organized we have re
cognized the absolute necessity
of our members making their
crops on a cash basis, hut as we
are a selling organization and
not a credit one we could not
remedy the situation. However,
on the last day of the last con
gress there was enacted a law
known as the Intermediate
Credits Act which makes it
possible for our members to get
on a cash basis.”
“This Intermediate Credits
Act. so called because it sup
plies money for a longer period
than the ordinary commercial
paper which runs for sixty to
ninety days and for a shorter
period than the loans made by
the Federal Land Banks, pro
vides far twelve Intermediate
Credits Banks in the twelve
cities in which the Federal
Land Banks are located. This
money is made available to the
state through the organization
of Agricultural Credit Corpora
tions and to the local communi
ties through the local banks or
“Mr. A. E. Bing, Secy-Treas.
of the N. C. Cotton Growers
Association, with the aid of in
terested bankers has organized
the N. C. Agricultural Credits
Corporation which makes
the money available to
the farmers of North
Carolina where they are mem
bers of the Cotton or Tobacco
Growers Associations. To make
the money available to the local
communities stock in the Credit
Corporation must be subscribed
by the local banks or the far
mers themselves. For every one
thousand dollars worth of stock
bought the Credit Corporation
will make loans in that commu
nity of ten times that amount.”
Already many thousands of
dollars worth of stock has been
bought by local banks and others
who have money to invest and I
believe within the next thirty
days there will be available in
each cotton growing county one
hundred thousand dollars or
more for financing our members
while grooving their crops.”

VISITING NEWSPAPER MAN’S OPINION
OF ROSEMARY AND ROANOKE RAPIDS
BY GEORGE CLAIBORNE SIMMS
Herewith I am going to frankly give my opinion as a man who
(or several years has been viewing, writing up and photographing
eilK ■ both large and small all over Virginia, North Carolina,
Tennessee and South Carolina of just how Rosemary and Roanoke
Rapids appeals to the visitor.
This is not to be construed as “soft soap," but as a straightout
presentment. Roanoke Rapids and Rosmeary are not perfect yet by
any means. But they certainly do rank with the best of commu
nities in any ot the state s mentioned, with size considered, in
point of civic beauty and improving.
But, we cannot live on past performances, for the water once
gone over the mill wheel never comes back to turn it again. We
must build for the present and the future, plan wisely and far

noke Rapi.Is as any community I have visited in a professional
way. It is a city of appeal in big all-around way. The hospitality
(•..tended here to my sell and wife has not gone unnoticed. The
church people are very active, and I must compliment them on
o.i alertness, social dity and efficiency as working units,
from what I can see to date, the towns of Rosemary and Roa
noke Rapids are good business towns, a good market for the
larn'uT. where competition has brought to the command of the
public the best in quality and service among retail stores. Yet
living costs are not high.
i have been impressed by the school facilities here, \yell may
the citizens pride themselves upon their schools. There is no
more priceless boon to the oncoming generation than a liberal
education. 1 he Roanoke Rapids Hospital stands out in state-wide

The spirit of the song of “Yes.

graphically illustrated in the

tuberculosis home in Halifax
county, they said “We approve of
it, but we have no money; it will
have to go in next year's budget.
Nothing can be done now.”
