again today with ani increasing show
Senator Reed, Democrat, of Mis

vigorous terms that he aroused re
p~eated objections from senators sup
porting it and developed a running
debate colored by dIramatic accusa

In i quent interruptions of the
Missouri Senator's speech, Senator
Hitchcock of Nebraska, ranking Denm
ocrat of the foreign ~relations commit

these charges were false and that the
inferences drawvn wvere unfair and
dangerous. He dIrew in turn a reply
from Senator Knox, of Pennsylvania,
who suggested that supporters of the

The measure which brought the
ssue before the Senate was the reso:
ution of Senator Johnson, Republican,

o reach a vote on the resolution, on
which debate began last Friday, and
he measure went over again as un

he Senate reconvenes Wednesday.
Without speaking <iirectly on the
[ohnson resolution, Senator Reed
1cde a general attack upon the
eague covenant itself as a proposal

ace and the civilized world to an as
sembly of nations where a majority
always could be brought together on

white supremacy. He declared sup

iramatically to his Democratic col

In his speech of nearly three hours
Senator Ieed presented a mass of
statistics and other information re

league. The members nations in which
the white race was predominant, he
s-id, totalled in population only 28?,.

are in the majority with a population
of 811,425,000. le said white nations
would have fifteen votes in the

As the nations where white blood
does not predominate, the Senator
named Liberia, Haiti, Hledjiaz, P~ana

Ecuador, Cuba, Bolivia, Peru, Brazil,
