The president sent chairman Xodg
the informal draft of the league of
The original American draft of the
league of nations covenant sent to the
foreign relations committee today by
president Wilson contains several pro
visions widely differing from the
league covenant as adopted at Paris.
The much debated provisions of
article 10 of the present cove
nant for arnaranieelng' the terri
torial Integrity of the league
members Is almost Identical with
a clause In the American draft.
The latter was as follows:
"The contracting powers undertake
to respect and to protect against ter
ritorial aggression the political inde
pendence and territorial Integrity of
all states members of the league."
Many of the arbitration provisions
are virtually the same In the two
drafts. The American draft also con
tained the plant finally adopted for a
council and a larger assembly and em
bodied a disarmament program sim
ilar to that In the final covenant It
also provided for an economic boycott
of caveaant breakers
' Ke Withdrawal provision.
The American plan eontatced so
provisions for withdrawal from mem
bership and made no reference to the
Monroe doctrine. It also contained a
provision, not finally accepted, under
which the league would "inquire Into
the feasibility of abolishing compul
sory military service."
There also as a provision In the
American plan, omitted from the final
draft, which would declare It a "fun-
oamentai covenant tnat no power
shopld overstep international agree
ments for rights on the high seas.
