On October 6

On this day in ...
... 1937, the League of Nations "adopted a resolution censuring Japan" for its aggression in China, "and inviting members to give China what aid they could -- recommending, however, 'further efforts to secure the restoration of peace by agreement.'" Sanctions would follow the next year; however, since Japan had withdrawn from the League long before, and so the resolution had no effect.
