Extract from: "A History of the League of Nations" by F.P. Walters, published in 1952, regarding the Stresa consultation, Poland's opposition to a Four-Power Pact, the policy of Pilsudski, Poland's desire to be among the Great Powers, the Polish-German Agreement of January 1934, Poland and the Minorities Treaty, the Nazi tyranny in Danzig, the Council and the Danzig Constitution.
Extract from the "Morning Post": A. Eden on the "deplorable" situation in Danzig owing to violations of the Constitution by the Nazi Government; appointment of a Committee of experts on oil sanctions; full support promised to the British Fleet in Mediterranean by France, Greece, Yugoslavia and Turkey.
Trouble situation in Danzig; test case of the League of Nations' authority; A. Eden's report to the League of Nations upon the political situation in Danzig rejected as an attempt to distract the world's attention from the League's inability to put an end to the Italo-Abyssinian conflict; J. Beck's speech interpreted as a rebuff to A. Eden and S. Lester.
Two press cuttings, the first one on the reception accorded to S. Lester when he took up his duties in Danzig: S. Lester emphasized the fact that Poles, Germans and Danzigers were united in their belief that an Irishman will understand their respective points of view and defend their respective interests; the second one on the Council's position towards the Free City of Danzig: though the Council of the League of Nations had a very grave responsibility towards the Free City of Danzig it could not assume the function of a court of law in regard to it.
Geneva, 90th session of the League of Nations Council - Soviet move against Uruguay; work with F.P. Walters and J. Avenol on draft report on Danzig; reactions of Poles Danzigers; reactions of German Press and English Press.
