Washington, June 1.1. The Porter
peace reholutlon, the House .vendon of
the Knox resolution, undoubtedly will
pass this afternoon ns scheduled. It
differs from tho Senate resolution In
hovcrnl respects, the most important of
which is that It merely declnrcs a state
of .peare to exist while thn Senate reso
lution repeals the declaration of war.
Tho House leaders profess that their
version is more ugreeablc to the Ad
ministration than the Senate version
The Administration declares that It Is
keeping its hands off. The Scnnte, jeal
ous of Its prerogatives, resents the
loer House's attempt to tinker with
foreign relations. The prospects thus
are for a long delay in conference be

will meet the difficulties of a complex
The opinion Is growing here that
everybody except a few irrcconc!lnb1ct
will be .well content to have the peace
resolution tied up in conference until
the Administration can see inoro clearly
than It does today what will be the
next step after peace Is formnll de
clared. Harding Keeps Hands Off
