In Washington the Interparliamentary Union (TIME, Oct. 12) last week closed its sessions. Two major resolutions had been passed:
1) for the codification of international law proposed by Elihu Root;
2) for the establishment of "demilitarized zones" in Europe proposed by General Spears, British M. P.
For the most part the closing sessions of the meeting were long-winded, poorly attended, devoted to talk of peace and security. But the delegates were out in force for a trip to Mount Vernon and for a banquet given by the U. S. delegation at the Mayflower Hotel.
