 League of Nations - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Eamon de Valera was the President of the Council of the League of Nations at its 68th and Special Sessions in September and October 1932, and President of the Assembly of the League of Nations in 1938.
The Covenant of the League of Nations was drafted by a special commission, and the League was established by Part I of the Treaty of Versailles, which was signed on June 28, 1919.
The United States was originally to be the fifth permanent member; however, it never joined the League, as a result of the Republican Party's Congressional election gains in 1918.

 MSN Encarta - League of Nations
One important activity of the league was the disposition of certain territories that had been colonies of Germany and the Ottoman Empire before World War I. Supervision of these territories was awarded to league members in the form of mandates.
During the league's 26 years, a total of 63 nations belonged at one time or another; 28 were members for the entire period (see accompanying table).
During the next two decades, American diplomats encouraged the league's activities and attended its meetings unofficially, but the United States never became a member.

 The Senate and the League of Nations
Membership in the League of Nations is treated, in the reservations, with so little dignity and as of such slight importance as to authorize its termination by the passage of a mere concurrent resolution of Congress.
I entertain little doubt that sooner or later -- and entirely too soon -- the treaty will be ratified with the League of Nations in it; and I am of the opinion with the reservations in it as they are now written.
Suspicion and mistrust of the nations associated with this government in the recent war are reflected by the reservations, sometimes poorly concealed, often clearly evinced.

The EU is dismissed as a failure and its members as a thing of the past-including a population that is no longer compatible with the prevailing demographic trends in the United States.
National confusion in the United States over NATO enlargement and to an extent NATO itself, and in Europe over the future of the EU and to an extent the EU as well, does not result from the fact that there is no case to be made.
As the 15 member states prepared for the last round of IGC negotiations in the spring of 1997, the newly fragile German government of Helmut Kohl found it difficult to accomodate the new and newly skeptical French govern-ment led by Lionel Jospin.

 I Am NOT The Beastmaster: The Justice League of Mutual Admiration and Respect for the Customs of All Nations and Indigenous Peoples
One of the first comic book storylines I followed avidly was in Justice League of America issues 166, 167, and 168, a pleasant romp in which the Secret Society of Super-Villains swaps bodies with five members of the Justice League.
Just one example: the first part opens with a bit of denouement from the previous issue as the Justice League attends the funeral of Zatanna's mother, a whole lot of dancing and garland-throwing.
These are comics that reliably sacrifice plot and action for forced characterization, that spend more time dwelling on a ruminating android than they do illustrating the climactic beat-downs of the Justice League.
