London-. March 12. Despite the as

strong is in Asia Minor, prepared to

Great Britain and Greece, tho latter

Turkish problem, are agreed that the
time is vlpe to tackle the Turk not
only In Constantinople but in all Asia
Minor. In this, however, they are op
posed by both France and Italy.
At the same time Italy and France
think that the Greeks are incapable or

The next move apparently is for the
British and French Governments or for
tho Supreme Council to decide what
shall bo the attitude toward the new
nominal kingdom and its King.
Among the day's reports was one that
a mandate had been given to France
over Cllicia, but this was unconfirmed,
It Is argued In some quarters that
Franco's hands are too full to under
take tills responsibility. Great Britain is
similarly regarded ruled out as a man
datory for tho same reason, and the
League of Nations is looked to na the
only hope for protecting Turkey's non
Moslem subjects. m
Reports are current that Bolshevist
activities directed agatnet the Allies
the
er
India. It Is said that ipecially trained
Bulsheuk propagandists have installed
France and Italy. Further, the French
and Italians believe that Greece, in the
event she were victorious over the
Turks, would demand more territory In
Asia Minor than France and Italy would
be disposed to give her Premier
A'enlzelos has declared that Greece is
asking no such additions.
Meanwhile the Young Turks have cap
tured the town of Marash, which com
mands the pass of the Amanus Moun
tains (Alma Dagh). This opens the
road for them to join hands with Prince
Faisal's Arab Nationalists. Thus the
danger of a Turco-Arab attack on the
French Is considered as very grave.
The difficulty of the situation Is
heightened by tho, French apposl to
Great Britain for troops ln the regions
where she Is threatened and by the fact
that Great Britain Is not only threat

Washington, March 12. Prospects
for ratification of tho German peace
treaty went glimmering again to -lav
when an approximately complete
analysis of the Senate situation
showed that tho Simmons-Wa'son
substitute for the Lodge reservation
to Article X. could not command a
two-thirds vote. Another substitute
offered by Senator Lodge (Mass.), the
Republican leader, stirred up so much
i opposition that a like fato was seen
for it.
The new Lodge substitute pr.ibably
will to adopted as part of the rally
ing resolution Instead of the orlglna1
Lodge reservation. This can b- done
by a majority vote. But with thh
substitute Incorporated the ratlfica-tlonls-ts
still will bo unable to com
mand thc two-thirds vote necos-'ir.
to adopt the resolution f ratification
U the substitute wins over a fewDsm
ocrats to vote for ratification It Til)
drive away enough Republicans to
balance tho account.
Senate leaders at the day's end cl
eulated that thirty Republicans r.n 1
twenty Democrats would vote ?or tlr
Locljre substitute, which Is a tnodlfl
cation of the Simmons-Watson pro
posal. Forty-nine votes-trill Insure if
substitution. The new Lodge proposV
follows:
The United States assumes no ob
ligation to preserve th territorial
integrity or political Independence of
any other country by the use of its
military or naval forces, its re
sources or any form of economic dis
ci Imlnotlon, or to Interfere with con
troversies between nations, whether
members of thc league or not, nndei
tho provisions of Article X., or to
employ the military or naval forces
of the United States under any ar
ticle of the treaty for any purpose
unless In any particular case the
Congress, which under the Constitn
tlon has the sole power to declaie
war or authorize the employment of
the military or naval forces of the
United States, shall. In the exercise
of full liberty of action, by act or
Joint resolution, so provide.
Penrose Join Irreconcilable.
To-day's calculation of the situation
showed tho fourteen original "irrecon
cilable" Republicans plus Penrose
(Ps.) standing fast against ratification
with any reservations. With them
were counted four Democratic "irrccon-
cllables." Reed (Mo.), Shields. (Tenn.),
Walsh (Mass.) and Thomas (Col.). Sen
ator Gore (Okla.) was Included with
this group yestetdaj, but lo-day lie eal.l
he would support the Lodge substitute
and If it were adopted vote to ratify.
This makes nineteen "irrcconcilables
Thirty-three voles are necessary to in
sure defeat. If tho Administration Dem
ocrats who are against ratification with
the Lodge reservation programme be

assured. Senators Hitchcock (Neb.),
the acting Democratic leader; Williams

that more than that number would be

Washington, March 12. A prelim
inary poll of the Ways and Means Com
mittee of thc House to-day showed that
thirteen of the twenty-five members are
against the enactment at this time of
any financial legislation to aid tho ex
service men because of the large expen
diture that would be needed. The asser
tions of Treasury officials that the rais
ing of this revenue, whether by the
Issuance of additional Government bonds
or increased taxation, would threaten
financial disaster swung several com
mittee members against the soldier
I bonus propositions as well as many
I other members of the House.
! Of the thirteen memoers of thc com
imlttee against the bonus programme
' eight are Democrats, including all but
two of the minority representation on
thc committee, while five are Repub
licans. Several of tho other ten Repub
licans are undecided.
Aa a result of the opposition against
the measure advocates of soldier aid
are now striving to force through a
compromise which would extend the ex
penditures necessary to carry out the
programme over several years. Such a
plan wan suggested to-day by Repre
sentative Nolan (Cat.), one of the labor
leaders of the House, He believed the
necessary revenue could be raised by a
1 per cent tax on gross tales.
Hose, distinguished Indian scientist, W.
E. ("Pussyfoot") Johnson, American
prohibition leader now in Europe, gave
hurried orders to English prohibitionists
to placard Great Britain with lurid
postern showing the "turnip's pangs," the
"Intoxication of the carrot" and the
"potato's death agonies," Sir Jagadls
told a London audience to-nlghl.
Sir Jagadls demonstrated his magnetic
crescograph, whereby the reaction of a
plant to every shock stimulus Is record
ed. For Instance, when treated with
alcohol a plant recorded a maudlin de
pression, followed by wild exultation.
Sir. Jagadls asserted that hN Instrument
recorded the growth of plants, and.
therefore, It Is now possible to ascertain
what agencies stimulate or retard plant
' growtli, and that it also Is possible to
control the world's foodstuffs.
A most Interesting feature of his ex
periment is tho possibility of future
control of sensation. By placing a
nerve under certain Influences, Sir Jaga
dls deduced tho possibility of arriving
at the message of pain which the human
nerve carries to the brain.
DOLLAR FALLS IN DENMARK.

CorsvHAGEN. March 12. The value of
the dollar within a week has dropped ! out sAcriftcin any effectiveness of the
more bitterness than has
marked the debate for a long time. W'hllo
thc discussion was In a fashion aim
less, because there Is no Intention of
getting an early vote, it nevertheless was
spirited and genuine, marked by sharp
passages between supporters and op
ponents of ratification. It was charged
by the latter that the compromise ef
forts are sustained by dishonest and
hypooritlcal arguments.
No vote on ratification Is expect
before the middle of next week and pe.
liaps still later. The managers are de
termined to have a full attendance, or
all Senators "paired," and are making
determined efforts to this end.
Nine Member Absent.
Opponents of ratification constitute a
majority of thc absentees nnd their col
leagues will keep the debate going until
they can be here. Senator Penrose will
be unable to come, it was said flnall
and Is not yet paired. Whether Senator
Fall (N. M.) can come Is doubtful, and
the samo is true of Senator Smith
