SANCTION ARMS PACT |
_ # i
'resident Presents Treaties Resulting J
From Arms Conference Asking
Lawmakers to Ratify
Fames R. Nourse in Charleston Amer-;
Washington, Feb. 10.?President!
Warding today in a speech lasting ex-j
?pt.lv thirtv minutes, laid before the
senate the entire set of treaties draft?d
by the arms conference and urged
.heir prompt ratification. The presiient
declared that unless the treaties
eceive the senate's sanction "every
jroclaimed desire to promote peace
<nd prevent war," would become a
lollow mockery. He said:
"If we cannot join in making effective
these covenants for peace and
:tajrin this conference with America's
approval, we shall discredit the influence
of the republic, render future
efforts futile or unlikely, and write
iiscouragement where today the
A'erld is ready to acclaim new hope."
In strongest terms the president
*ave his solemn and earnest assurance
:hat there is nothing in any of the
Dacts which commits the United
5*atps in anv wav to an "alliance, en
;anglement or involvement," and that
'no worth while tradition" is surrenlered
by the United States.
Especially of the four-power Pacific
treaty, the president declared it
iontained no "war commitment," no
vritten or moral obligation to join in
lefense, "no expressed or implied
omnutment to arrive at any agreement
except in accordance with our;
Exposition Clears Atmosphere
That the president's exposition of
he treaties served greatly to clear
he atmosphere with respect to some
)f their provisions was admitted by

is hot," became evident as soon as
he president had left the senate
:hairJber. Senator Lodge took the
irct step in this direction by immedittely
summoning the foreign relations

norning to begin consideration of the
reaties. The senator intends to leave

Senator McNary, republican, of Or:gon,
leader of the "mild reservationcts,"
was one of the first to admit
hat the president's speech had won
lim over to support of the treaties.
ie has been holding out tor a reser'ation,
declaring that the United
States should not be called upon to
ise force in meeting any exigency unler
the four-power treaty. After the
resident's speech, the senator said:
UI thought it was a great document.
The president made .it plain to me
hat no war commitments exist in aricle
two of the four-power treaty.
This was the only thing thdt stood beween
me and a vote for the treaty
.nd I believe the people of the Pacific
oast will be satisfied with the presilent's
Senator Borah, leader of the irreoncilables,
said he liked the speech
.nd that he had examined the naval
reaty sufficiently to know that he
fould vote for it. He announced,
ir!th a reservation, that he might also
upport the other treaties, his statenent
being as follows: v
"If I find the president's construcion
of the other treaties is correct,
hat they do not entangle us in an aiiance,
and that they do preserve the
raditional policy of the United States
may support them. But if I find by
ay examination of them that they
!o these things, then I will oppose
hem to the very best of my ability."
Among democratic members sentiment
generally was in support of the
iresident's position, although Senator
liichcock, who led the fight for the
Vilson league of nations, declared he
v*as*still inclined to work for reservaions
in the four-power tr?aty. The
enatnr said !
"My disposition is favorable to the
taval treaty and to the Chinese treay,
but I cannot say that the presilent's
speech has strengthened my
(csition with reference to the four>ower
treaty. I think it presents
nany difficulties which will have to be
-arefully studied, and pernaps reservations
will be necessary."
Senator Pomerene of Ohio said he
ntended to look at all the treaties
'systematically" and will approve
'anything that looks like limitation of
Complete Minutes Submitted
In addition to submitting the treaties,
the president gave to the senate
the complete minutes of the plenary
sessions and committee meetings and
the official report made to him by the
American delegation. He said these
documents were fitting testimonials to
the "open and simpler diplomacy" for
which the world asked and which
"contributed largely to the success of
Of the conference as a whole, the
president said the treaties are the
"covenants of harmony, of assurance,
of conviction, of conscience and of
unanimity," that they take the place
of various multi-power treaties, and
"serve to put an end to contradiction?
and to remove ambiguities and establish

brought closer together and are
stauncher "neighbors and fricnds;
they have clearer and better estimates
of one another, they have seen suspicion
challenged and selfishness made
jto retreat," and have combined tc
make the world "safer and better and
more hopeful place in which to live.'
Discussing the question of entering
into the agreements, the president
had this to say:
''Either we must live and aspire anc
achieve under a free and common understanding
among peoples, with mutual
trust, respect and forbearance
and exercising full sovereignty, oi
else brutal, armed force will dominate
and the sorrows and burdens oi
war in this decade will be turned tc
the chaos and the hopelessness of the
next. We can not more do without
international negotiations in these
modern days than we could maintair
orderly neighborliness at home without
the prescribed rules of conducl
which are more the guarantees oi
freedom than the restraint thereof.
Absence of Commitments
The president's statement regarding
the absence of eorrrmitments ir
the four-power treaty was as follows
"The four-power treaty contains nc
? *' x _ ,
war comm:tmem. 11 covenants tnt
respect of our nation's rights in relation
to its insular possessions. In
case of controversy between these
covenantly powers itds agreed to confer
and seek adjustment, and if said
rights are threatened by the aggressive
action of any outside power,
these friendly powers, respecting one
another, are to communicate, perhaps
confer, in order to understand what
action may be taken, jointly or separately,
to meet a menacing situation.
"There is commitment to armed
force, no alliance, no written or moral
obligation to join the defense, no
expressed or implied commitment to
arrive at any agreement except in
accordance with our constitutional
methods. It is easy to believe, however,
that such a conference of the
four-powers is a moral warning that
an aggressive nation, giving affront
to the four great powers ready to
force world opinion on a given controversy,
would be .embarking on a
tiaziaiuuuQ vii ? vi A.
President Harding asserted that if
the nation may not safely agree "to
respect each other's rights, and may
not agree to confer if one of the
compact threatens, or may not agree
to advise if one party to the pact is
threatened by an outside power, then
all concerted efforts to tranquilize the
world and stabilize peace must be
flung to the winds."
The president said his service in
the senate had made him cautious on
the point of contracting foreign relationships.
He said the concern of
the senate in this direction had not
been forgotten by the American delegates
to whose ability he paid high
respect. The conference has dissipated
"the apprehension of territorial
greed and concern in the world,"
the president said, and with ratification
of the treaties he eynresserl r?nn
fidence that the United States will
have "new assurances, new freedom
from anxiety, and new manifestations
of the sincerity of our own intentions
