  • Same! What are some achievements or successes of it that you've heard of?

  • OH! I've heard that they settled the division of Upper Silesia in 1922, and prevented the outbreak of war in the Balkans between Greece and Bulgaria in 1925.
  • Nice! Do you know that in addition to it, the League extended considerable aid to refugees; and it helped to suppress white slave andopium traffic too?
