FRANCE DISSATISFIED WITH FEW GENERALITIES Claim Briand's Cabinet Told Them Nothing They Didn't Know, By A. L. BRADFORD. WASHINGTON, Jan. 21-Should President-elect Harding issue a call to a disarmament conference when he lakes office the peoples of the great powers would force their governments to respond, Henry White, one of the American peace delegates, told the house naval affairs committee today. Such an invitation by President Wilson would produce no results, AVhite added, becauseWilson is an outgoing president. "The time is at hand for disarmament," said White, and added that a conference should be called soon after Harding enters the White House. The conference. White said, should be held in Washington "as it is al most impossible for representatives abroad to appreciate the fee-ling in this country." "Another great war would be so Infinitely more horrible than the last that whole nations would be wiped out," White said. "The danger of another such war will be greater without disarmament." White said that a general plan for disarmament of both military and naval forces should include the United States, England, Japan, France and Italy, but that plans for naval dis armament only should take in. the United States, Gceat Britain and Japan as the great naval powers. White opposed inviting all the nations of the world to a disarmament conference, saying that It would result in "perfect chaos." "Look what happened in Paris," he said. "The result was that the conference resolved itself into the actions of the five great powers." White said France, where he was formerly ambassador probably would look with "grave suspicion on a plan for military disarmament," because of local conditions m Europe and France's fear of the clanger of bolshevism from Russia.
