At the Bar of the Five Nations: or, a CONSOMMATION devoutly to be wished. M Briand. "I want something sustaining. Can you give me a 'military commitment'?" Mr MacDonald. "Sorry, we don't serve it. Against the rules of the house. But I can recommend our 'No 16 Old Geneva Clarified.'" [In order to appease the desire of France for guarantees of security, persistent research has been made for a formula based on a "clarifying" interpretation of Article No 16 of the Covenant of the League of Nations.] (an InterWar cartoon showing Aristide Briand as a sailor and Ramsay MacDonald as a barman)
