"It looks as though we rmight come
out at the same hole we went in," said
Senator Hitchcock, the Democratic
leader, after another effort to obtain
Republican aid in modifying the
Article 10 reservation adopted at the
last session of congress. He added
that the Republicans apparently had
rejected all compromise proposals on
the subject and that he was certain
the treaty never could be ratified un
less they did compromise.
At the same time some senators in
the mild reservation group of Repub
licans indicated their belief that the
Democratic proposal might command
considerable strength, while some
Democrats predicted that enough Dem
ocrats to insure ratification would
break away and vote for the Republi

The result was a muddled situati<
in whici the party leaders on bol
sides appeared uncertain as to wh;
might be the next deevlopment.
generally was agreed however, tlh
there would be no show down in
mediately and that the debate whi<
began yesterday would be permitt
to run for the present without an
effort to hasten a ratification.
Forty Democrats had been pledge
tonight for the alternate Article 1
reservations presented by Senatc
Hitchcock and he said he hoped eve1
tually to have the support of one <
two more. It would take 49 votes I

ratification by a two-thirds vote.
was pointed out however, that the Ri
publication leaders might be placed
an awkward position should a majo
ity displace the Republican reserv
tion with one drawn up by the Demi
crats. How many Republicans the
would swing over on the ratificatic
vote in problematical.
The senate made no progress toda
towards a vote on the first of ti
proposed modification in the Republ
cans reservations, the encire day be
ing occupied by debate on othe
features of the treaty.
