GENEVA, June 13. --- Consul S. Pinkney Tuck presented to the League of Nations Opium
Advisory Commission last week a resume of Washington's annual drug report, which brought
out clearly American police and court methods in dealing with illicit drug traffickers.
The figures on arrests and the fact that more than 90 per cent. Of the cases resulted in
convictions impressed the listeners.
The American representative on the League advisory body appeared in an unofficial capacity.
There is hope that the American plea for international police cooperation in the
suppression of illicit traffic in drugs may some day be realized and that she will not
have to wait for the suppression of poppy and cocoa culture in order to free humanity from
the scourge of habit-forming drugs.
