Looking into the future at the three greatest international problems that there are: the evolution of the British Empire; the Empire's relations with the United States; the maintenance of peace in Europe. The slow but steady evolution of the British Empire. The need for constant intercommunication and conference. The interest in the Empire as a spur to education. Relations between the British Empire and the United States. Treading on ground which seems to be practically the surest and firmest of any in the whole domain of international relations. Economic competition as one possible source of trouble and how that may be so. The urgent need to maintain European peace. A review of recent history. The doctrine of the balance of power. The need to continue to be intimately connected with the affairs of Europe. Supporting the League of Nations. Beginning to talk European together.
