Unless otherwise expressly provided the League will act through an assembly comprising not | more than three representatives from each State, which will have one vote.. The League Council, which will, be composed of one member from each of the five Great Powers, and one member from every four others, will, be unable to deal with matters of domestic jurisdiction.
