32Yearbook of the AssociationVol. 8 which was published in the Journal of Geology, Vol. 26, p.p. 701-727, November 1918. At that time, he proposed greater emphasis upon the economic aspects of the League of Nations, the removal of artificial barriers to world trade, and the extension of the freedom of the seas by free "world-ways" across the continents. In addition to Chamberlin's views, any international organization similar to the League should give due consideration to the importance of regionalism, and recognize that the oceans are larger and more important than the continents as natural regions. Regions of the first order should include the Atlantic, Pacific, and Mediterranean regions, and possibly the Indian Ocean. Regions of the second order would include the Baltic countries, the Danubian nations, Northwestern Europe, and other federations which have common bases of culture and economic interest. Three necessary instruments for carrying out this plan of commonwealth involve the use of a world police force of ships and planes, support of a World Court by the United States, and an international Economic Council composed of experts. Furthermore , international control of raw materials, and of the medium of exchange, and an auxiliary international language, will be required.

He had recently published a text entitled Physical Geography, and had contributed a number of articles to Economic Geography; including "Cranberry Industry of the Pacific Coast," "Communities in the Salt Lake Basin," "Regions and Resources of Alaska," "Seattle as a Port City," "The Development of Reindeer Activities in Alaska," and "Economic Adjustments on the Olympic Peninsula." N. F. GORDON DAVIS As this Yearbook goes to press, word comes of the sudden death of Dr. N. F. Gordon Davis, of Department of Geology of the University of British Columbia, where he has been in charge of the geography work for that institution. Dr. Davis has been an active and enthusiastic member of the Association for several years, and his influence will be missed. He was a contributor to The Pacific Northwest, edited by Freeman and Martin. ...
