This afternoon's talk will deal generally with the Kellogg proposals for the outlawry of War, and refer in particular to an organization that has been formed of British and American women to secure international support for these proposals from the Women of the World.
Mrs. Corbett Ashby's subject is one that cannot afford to be neglected by anyone interested in world politics or in the great international feeling of the present day which is determined, however incoherently that feeling may be expressed, that War shall be no more.
