Clcraenceau's Refusal to Read
Foch Letters Stirs
Docility Lacking (Now) in
Chamber Toward "Tiger"
as He Vaunts League.
By a Staff Correspondent of Ths Sea.
Copyright, lilt; all riAi mm ed.
Paris, July 19. Were President Wil
son to appear before the Foreign Re
lations Committee of the American Sen
ate oh Its demand and answer questions
In regard to the doings of the Council
or Four tha situation would be a fairly
close parallel to the examination of
Premier Clmeanceau on Thursdsy by
the Peace Commission of the Chamber
of Deputies.
The French Prime Minister produced
the letters of Marahal Foch In regard
to the Rhino, but he refused flatly to
give the committee the procss verbal or
minutes of the proceedings of ths meet
ings of the Council of Four, which has
caused extreme dissatisfaction to many
In fact the sessions of the committee,
which are surrounded with great secrecy,
seem to have been exteremly animated
owing to this refusal. The most sensa
tional Incident waa when Franklin Bouil
lon, Chairman of the Foreign Relations
Committee, who had threatened to read
the Foch lettara phbllcly If Premier
Clemanceau did not read them to tha
committee, left the room In disgust
Agreemest for Secrecy.
Clemenceau Intimated that there was
an agreement between Presldept Wil
son and his confreres not to disclose pub
licly any of tne secrets of tlw Council
of Four, to which all would adhere, thus
apparently forecasting a refusal by the
President of a similar request by the
American Senate. However, like Wil
son, Clemenceau invited the members of
the committee to visit him for private
talks, saying that 'already he had re
ceived several. Once, whesr he was
warmly pressed In a heated debate, the
"Tiger" replied :
"I have nothing to hide. I am the
Chief of the Government and In thia
capacity, according to the Constitution,
it was my duty to negotiate and make
the Peace Treaty. 1 have done my
duty ; now do yours."
Great Interest centres around the let
tfrs of Marshal Foch, but that they will
row be made public Is doubtful. Premier
Clemenceau gave up two of the letters
reluctantly ; these were written to the
Council of Four when It was discussing
the question of the Rhine. It Is said
that there are more than these two
letters and that they constitute the chief
ammunition of the Foch military party.
The usual docility of the Chamber In
contact with the "Tiger" seemed to be
lacking, Indicating that his enemies were
increasingly active and watching closely
the developments In the American
Senate. The Premier Insisted that every
opportunity had been given Marshal
Foch to express his views before the
Council of Four, but It was the unani
mous opinion of the latter that the
treaty and the alliance agreements gave
sufficient protection to France.
Holds Agreemest .Makes Safety.
He pointed out that if these alliances
had existed five years ago Germany
would not have attacked France. In his
explanation of the resources of the United
States and Great Britain he said that
if democracy were again imperilled
these nations would give all to aid
France. Also he Insisted thst the moral
effect and the material presence of
American and British troops In the zone
of occupation waa another guarantee.
Thus ths old "Tiger" threw down the
gage of battle to the Foch party, which
doea not see anything In the League of
Nations and appears to be very uncer
tain aa to the dependence to be put on
the American and British treaties. The
meeting was noteworthy also for the
Prime Minister's guarded promise to re
duce the military period from three to
two years to show his own confidence
that France had nothing to fear under
the treaty.
This promise the Government news
papers are atressing, criticising tha ac
tion of the inquisitors of Clemenceau us
prorqnted by a revival of the old mili
tary apirit. Criticism of the treaty, how
ever, Is Increasing, apparently, and may
yet cause trouble 'In the Chamber of
Deputies. L' 'Information calls it an

' It admits that the advantage to the
United Statea Is chiefly moral, Inn It
Insists that hereafter the United States
and Great Britain will run everything,
the British colonies having votes in the
league, while America will control Cuba,
Liberia and Panama. Thus the Anglo
Saxons will be able to count on a total
of twenty-five votes against the five
mustered by France and the affiliated na
tions. It continues:
"The League of Nations Is entirely
an Anglo-Saxon conception. All the
amendments which disfigure the cove
nant were introduced to satisfy the
American Senate. Its home Wfjs de
termined by Anglo-Saxon votes : the
first secretary Is an Englishman. If
the treaty Is Anglo-Ssxon this new in
stitution to enforce It also is Anglo

Paus, July 19. The Allies are show
ing growing concern over the Turkish
situation, which has been allowed to
drift waiting for the United Statea to
decide what she wishes to do In regard
to the mandate question. This appeared
In the meeting yesterday of the Council
of Five when the American commission
was asked when It would act In this
It Is understood that while Premier
Clemenceau was Informed that action
was very uncertain and that It might be
some time before the partition question
was settled; the Allies are unable even
to begin the drafting of the Turkish
treaty pending audi action. The aitua
tlon la such that they would Ilka In some
way to go ahead themselves without
waiting for Amcrica.et with America
out of It British and French Interests
would be likely to clash. All realise the
dangerous diplomatic situation that
might result.
Other I.lve Questions.
Other subjects which are coming to
the front are :
,1. Repatriation of Russian prisoners
held In Germany.
2. The Russian blockade question.
3. The alleged Greek atrocities at
Alden. which are to be Investigated by
an Allied commission.
The 250,000 prisoners captured by the
Germans constitute a most difficult prob
lem because nearly alt of them are
Bolshevists. In order to prevent them
from going back to Russia the Allies
made an agreement with Germany to
pay the cost of feeding them, but this
Involves great expense. The Germans
cannot keep them otherwise, so the
Allies must continue to feed them or
else let them return to swell Lcnine'a
The American commission Is awaiting
word from President Wilson in regard
to the blockade of Russia. Grest
Britain and France are anxious, Imping
that the President will arprove the plan ;

He touched also upon King Edward's fondness for pretty women, anrl
alluded to the King's complaints to him (tho Crown Prince) that the

It was simple, direct and well done by the budding Imperial nuthor, who

So far as could be seen the Dutch maintain no special watch upon
him; only the usual two policemen In plain clothes were at the boat landing.
The Allies, however, evidently are keeping a close watch upon him and
upon his visitors through their own agents on the Island.
The former Crown Prince Inquired about Americans he had known,
but who might feel embarrassed were I to mention their names. Ho
sometimes surprises one with his almost boyish frankness in admitting
his faults and mistake. Once during the chat he burst out with:
"You know me pretty well; sometimes you are unpleasantly frank.
Now tell me, am I really as bad as the newspapers make me out to be?"
While destiny and the Allies are figuring out the fate of the former
Crown Prince he is laying the foundation for a career either as a Journalist
or a violin rlrtuoso should he have to earn his own living.

Senators. Three of them attended, all
to discuss matters immediately affecting
their home States.
League Sentiment at law Mark.
Falling in this, the President resorted
to conferancea with those Republican
Senators who were looked on na a little
wabbly in their attitudes. When even
these Senators told the President with
out mlnclr g Words that the Peace Treaty
and the league scheme were more than
likely to fail unless material reserva
tions were made sentiment for the
league reached low water mark. There
It remains for the present. Even the
enthuslastio supporters of the President
admitted this to-night, snd some of them
are talking of urging upon the President
the abandonment of his trip around the
country- They believe, and some of
them want to try to convince the Presi
dent, that It Is of more Importance to his
plaps for him to stay in Washington niiu
try to hold his Senate supporters in line
than it la "to get the country behind
him," as he told Europe it already was
cin top of the knowledge that a more
than sufficient number of Senators have
virtually burned their bridges behind
them and laid down the lines of- the
fight so that the treaty must be altered
or rejected, it is regarded as not at all
unlikely that the President will let talk
of his trip die out and remain In Wash
ington. However. If the Treslrlent wants to
make a domestic tour he may do so
with the assurance that the Senate will
not try to conclude Its action on the 1
treaty during his absence. Members of
the Foreign Relations Committee said it !
would be lmpo.ihe to get the treaty
out of committee for practically a
month, largely because of the almost j
complete Ignorance of its terms on ane !
part of some of the Democratic Sena -
tors. It has become necessary to read
the whole voluminous document very '
slowly in order to correct this situation. '
In addition some very important tnaff ;
must be studied by the committee to
understand the many new boundaries
fixed by the pact. These maps must
come from Paris, and cannot he mailed
immediately. They are expected about
August 1.
When the treaty comes out of the !
committee the real fight will begin. It
Will take s good many weeks before It is
settled snd the President need have no
fear of hasty alteration and ratification
of the treaty during his proposed Junket.

Training New Operators to Handle
New York's Big Telephone Load
THE Operators' Training Departments In New York City
are very active today in supplying the many Central
Offices of the City with trained operators to help shoulder
the big telephone load.
More than 700 young women students are now going through
the intensive course of instruction in these Training Depart
ments and they are receiving pay while they learn. In a
recent month a record class of 537 was graduated.
Never before has telephone operating held quite the same op.
portunities for young women. The starting salary rate has
been increased and the unusual demands made upon the service
have created, and will continue to create, additional super
visory positions that carry with them salaries raneina from
$22.00 to $42.00 a week.
Training students for positions at existing Central Office
switchboards and preparing the trained personnel for new
switchboards now in course of construction is part of the gen
eral plan for restoring to New York City
