Washington, March 14.-Prelimin
ary plans for formation of a national
-nonpartisan organization designed to
keep the American people better in
formed as to events at the peace con
ference and to oppose acceptance of
the constitution of the league of na

conference today between Senators
Reed of Missouri, democrat, and
Borah of Idaho, and Poindexter of
Washington, republicans, and George
Wharton Pepper, a lawyer of Phil
It was announced that Henry Wat
terson, former publisher of, the Lou
isville Courier - Journal, would be
president of the .organization, with
Mr. Pepper as directing supervisor.
It was said many senators who have
been opposed to the league constitu
tion would support the organization.
Senator Reed announced a state
ment outlining the purposes of the
organization would be issued within
a few days. One purpose it was ex
plained, would be the co-ordination
of various local bodies that have been
formed over the country in opposi
tion to the league. Present plans call
for establishment of a speakers' bho
reau and the conducting of an inten

Senators said the organization
would be supported by voluntary con

The third doctor refused to agree

death resulted from a hemorrhage of
the brain and that the indirect cause
was his light with Mr. Swindlehurst.
He would not say that the blows
caused death and left the defense the
opening it has sought since the trial
started, to show that Mr. Harvey died
of heart trouble, apoplexy or some
other disease aggravated by the fist
fight, but that he did not die as a
