JANE ADDAMS HOPES LEAGUE WILL PROTECT MIGRATORY LABOR
New York, March 8. -- Hope that a league of nations will become a reality, because of the protection it would give migratory labor, was expressed by Miss Jane Addams, of Chicago, at a meeting here today of the league of free nations association.
Asserting that "Nationalism stands in the way of humanity," Miss Addams continued: --
"Migratory labor is always in danger of exploitation because there is no international protection. The people in Central Africa have been exploited hopelessly because there was no protection for them.
"I believe this league of nations can be extended to economic matters. I believe the thing will settle itself because the people will take it up in a humane spirit and will break down the old prejudice of nationalism."
