Who Is Responsible For
Smashing the Treaty?
Jubilation reigned in some quarters when the Senate's emphatic rejection of the Treaty
of Versailles came as a sensational climax of one of the most bitterly fought political battles in
our history. It may have been a victory, and the destroyers of the Treaty and the League of
Nations "may exult in their triumph." but, retorts the Springfield Republican (Ind.), "they
will go into history having constructed nothing and selfishly leaving the world to its darkness and
woe." Opposing this view the New York Sun declares that '"there never was anything more
wrong, more ridiculous, more preposterous, than to maintain that the war was going on and must
go on until the United States Senate and the American people consented to swallow Mr.
Wilson's pernicious League of Nations." In fixing the responsibility, the pro-League Rochester
Times-Union (Ind.) says that "the United States Senate under the bankrupt leadership of Sen
ator Henry Cabot Lodge has killed the Peace Treaty," but Republican papers like the Phila
delphia North American and New York Tribune lay the responsibility for the failure of the
Treaty at the President's own door, in effect charging him with "infanticide."
Under the heading "The Rejection of The Treaty" THE LITERARY DIGEST this week
November 29th?prints as its leading article a summary of public opinion in the United States
as expressed in newspapers of all shades of opinion. The article covers every phase of the con
troversy over the Treaty and makes very clear how the country regards the Senate's action.
