    Dear all
    Here's a headline appearing in "Newsreel XXXIII", "USA" by John Dos Passos. Could someone tell me if "Big Pool" could be a reference to Paris Peace Conference in 1919?

    "Pool" might refer to a large group of entities or nations who are interested in Asia's development; it's not clear to me whether they intend to work together or are seeking separate paths; I suppose the former is likelier, given the entire phrase.

    Hi, B
    It's so good to have you here again.
    But, Paris Peace Conference WAS indeed a large group of nations and countries (at least in the beginning because at the end there were only 3 or 4 big powers) who intended to determine the destiny of the world, among that Asia.

    I wonder if it could refer to a pool of money, i.e. a fund which various countries have contributed to with the intention of giving aid to Asia.
