Growing Indications for Renewal

growing indications tonight that the
senate's struggle to dispose of the
peace treaty would be renewed during
the coming week, with an increased
determination of those who want rati
Senators returning from holiday
trips to their home states made sever
al new suggestions to the compromise
proposals of those who had remained
here during lie recess to -work on a
concilation )rog'iram. As a result, tho
compromise negotiations seemed like
ly to take a wide scope and although
no one could pr"diot. ertalnly the re

in private and party conference and
on the senate oflor apparently was
Senator Hitchcock, the Democratic
leader, and Republican senators of the
reservation group were confident that
their recent !iscussons had laid the
basis for a settlement although no
definite announceimelt has been made.
Two compronise plans bid fair to
develop miuc[ discussicn during the
weel:. One w:s p)rol)osed by Senator
Underwood who intro(duccd a resolu
tion just before congrl"ss recessed on
December 20 iirovidin for appoilnt
mni('t of a cone hllation committee of
ten senators to work out a basis for
ratification. S.'nator Underwood is not
expected to return to Washington un
til 'Tuesday, and whetler he -will ask
for immediate action on the measure
is uncertain. Tile mild reservation Re
publicans and many )emocrats have
said they would supi)o"t it but some of
the leaders think suc'h a formal move
The other suggestion widely talked
of ton ight w as a geleral conference of
