j WASHINGTON', Dec. SS. Presi
dent Harding informed the Sennto to
day that action by it on Senator
. JJorah's plan for nn economic and dis
armament conference was not advis
able In view of what the Executive
branch of the Government already is
doing "to be helpful."
v Just what the steps already taken
or in contemplation by the Adminis
tration may be, however, the Presi
dent did not reveal.
,'The views of tho President wwe set
forth in a letter to Chairman Lodge
$t tho Foreign rtelations Committee,
sent to the Capitol to be presented nt
tho opening of tho second day of de
bate on tho Borah proposal, which is
embodied In an amendment to tho an
nual Naval Appropriations litll.
The President's letter follows:
' "My Dear Senator Lodge:
"Replying to your inquiry relative
jfJto tho proposed amendment to the
requesting tho President to call an
economic conference to deal vlth con
ditions tn the v, ar-torn, nations of
Europe I write to say that I know ot
no prohibition agalnbt such an ex
pression on the part of the Congress,
but I do frankly question the desira
bility of f-iich an expression. I think
IMs undesirable because of false im
pressions which may bo conveyed
ttiereby to Europe, and even more un
yleslrablc because of tho wrong im
tawpresslon It conveys to our own people.
"On tho face of thins it is cqulva

Branch of tho Government, which is
Cbjirged with tho conduct of foreign
relations, is not fully nllvo to a world

To-day Senator Lodge, leader in the
round-robin episode. Is pleading with
Senator Borah ot Idaho, another Ko-

might find it advantageous to America
to postpone. )
Tho explosion in tho Senate is not
partisan, though tho Democrats are
standing by, deriving considerable
satisfaction out of tho vindication of
their position of tho last thrco years
on world nffalrs. It Is a fundamental
quarrel between two schools of
thought In tho Republican Party. Tho
outbreak was Inevitable. It has been
coming on for three years and is lust
now reaching its climax.
Tho fight fsn't between those who

been moro or less broken up in the
present fight over Mr. Corah's reso
lution requesting tho President to call
an cconomlo conference.
Senator Hiram Johnson of Califor
nia says that what Sir. Borah is ad-'

argument taken by Mr. Wilson. So
