If any weight can be given to statements by M. Leon Bourgeois and Sir Eric Drummond, respectively chairman and secretary of the Executive Council, the League wants the United States, anxiously awaits her decision and promises her a warm welcome.

The League wants America; America wants the League; still the chair is empty.
