The brain child of fascist dictator Mussolini, the Four-Power Pact was a diplomatic treaty that was intended to guarantee a greater voice to the four strongest powers in Europe: Italy, Germany, France and Britain.

Even before the signatures had a chance to dry, the skeptical opinions of the world's editorial writers began to appear in all the various assorted newspaper and magazine the world over. The attached page contains some of these opinions, such as this one that was proffered by the Rome correspondent for the Associated Press:

"The principal point is the collaboration of the four Powers concerned in the treaty. This already was provided in the 1925 Locarno Pact..."

"The chief value of the Mussolini pact is (1) it induces collaboration in Europe and (2) it pledges the disarmament regardless of what the disarmament conference does."

Predictably, Mussolini's lap-dog press thought the treaty was simply grand:

"Peace, which seemed to escape us is now a reality."
