Sir HERBERT AMES:
It is the earnest desire as far as possible to have every Power great and small enter the League of Nations in due course. For example, I do not think there is any desire to keep out for any prolonged period even those States [DOT]which were originally enemies of the Allies. It is only a question of when the right time arrives for those Powers one by one to be taken in, on condition that they apply to be taken in, and I think practically all of them will apply. In the case of Russia it is impossible to prophesy, because we do not know what condition of affairs exists in that country, nor are we permitted as yet to carry on that inquiry which the League considers to be necessary in order to know the exacst facts regarding the Soviet administration.
