The discussion of International Law Situations was carried on by the considerable body of officers composing the conference of 1904, with the assistance of Mr. George Grafton Wilson, professor in Brown University.
It is always the intention to direct the discussions to those difficult and urgent situations in which naval officers have been, or are likely to be, involved, rather than to cases in which the law and precedent are well established, and the president of the college invites suggestions as to such cases.
