Knox Resolution Reported to Senate By
Foreign Relations Committee By Vote of
8 to 7?Will Mean Big Fight When Called
Up for Debate on Tuesday.
The Knox resolution demanding
tha separation of the league of na
tions from the peace treaty was re
ported to the Senate by the Foreign
Relations Committee yesterday with i
a majority vote in favor of its pas- j
?age.
Section 5 of the resolution, pro-1
posing that the United States
should pledge assistance to the ti
lled nations in the event of another
European war. was stricken out by j
I he committee.
Senator Knox will call up the
^.resolution next Tuesday for con
sideration. There is no means of
determining when it may be brought
lo a vote, as the debate is likely to
be extended over a long perind of
time.
Kxpeet UlUon to Explain.
Supporters of the President believe !
that when the treaty Is officially
transmitted to the Senate the Presi
leirt will accompany it with an elab
5rate message, explaining all the de
rails and the reasons for the specific
provision*. Such a message.

The session of the committee as
lescribed bv some of the Senators j

Democrats fought with all their power '

?o the Senate or to amend it in such '
nanner as to render it innocuous.
Some of them did not hesitate to

Hitchcock's Fight V ain.
Senator Hitchcock opened the tight

:h? league Senators by moving to
strike out the preamble. This was
-oted down. 8 to i A motion by
Senator Pittman to postpone action1
intil June 16 was likewise defeated. 1
to 6. Then a motion by Senator i
Hitchcock to Invite Acting Secretary
I Polk, of the State Department, to
appear before the committee and dis

effect upon the Peace Conference was
rejected, 9 to 6.
Senators Borah and Johnaon ex
pressed strong disapproval of the last
section of the resolution, by which it
was sought to pledge assistance to
European nations if they should be
again involved in war, and upon mo
tion of Senator /Lodge this portion of
the resolution was eliminated. The
vote was 8 to 6, McCumber voting
with the Democrats. Senator Knox
informed the committee that he was
not specially interested In the pro
posal and voted to strike it out.
The fight in the committee reveal
ed the intensity of the partisan
bitterness over the league of na

illustration of what the debate may
lead to when the resolution is

U. S. Retains Boiling Field
As Permanent Aero Post
Boiling Field will be retained.
This wu the substance of an order
issued yesterday to Col. R. S. Harts,
in charge of the flying field, through
War Department channels.
With the announcement yesterday
much of the uarest that has been
existing at the flying station, due to
the rumored abandonment of the
field, was set at rest.
There are twenty fliers at the
field, all of whom have had many
months of training and are consider
ed among the most skilled in the
country. In addition, approximately
270 enlisted men are detailed in
various mechanical departments.
Recently hangars costing many
hundred thousands of dollars were
completed, giving rise to the belief
it was the intention of the War De
partment to use this flying field as
a permanent experimental station.
Where Statesmen Try Wings.
Some of the country's most famous
statesmen have made their first aerial
flights from Boiling Field. During
the past several months United States
Senators and Representatives have
been privileged to fly over Washing
ton. Their recommendations in re
taining Boiling Field, in spite of
heavy retrenchments in all army
branches, may have had some weight
in the War Department's decision.
Many of America's most famous
overseas pilots also have from time;
to time been stationed at the field.
Boiling Field at present stands j
foremost in several of the world's I
records in radio and wireless tele- j
phone work. The maneuvers of a fleet j
of flve planes have been directed
from the field by means of the wire

Much favorable comment on the
retention of Botfing Field was heard
in aviation circles last night. It Is
believed to be the logical location for
a mid-Atlantic station. Although its

eighteen months, so many improve

The white flag; has been raised by
the Board,of Education in its strife
with the teachers' union of the Dis

The growing feud was almost
washed off the slate yesterday
when the board unanimously adopt
ed a resolution creating a council
of teachers, which shall have con

questions of school policy.
By its action the board has not
recognized the teachers' union, nor

into existence a council which in
one sense may be regarded as a
rival of the union, but nevertheless
gives to the teachers a power of

LABOROPPOSES
RED DISORDERS
i
New York, June 12.?A movement to
bring about the overthrow of the
j United States government was re
vealed today by Hugh J. Frayne.
general organizer of the American
Federation of Labor, testifying at the
opening session of the Lusk Commit
tee appointed by the New York legis
lature to investigate Bolshevism.
"Certain elements." said Frayne.
"are scheming for the overthrow of
this government by the use of force
and violence."
The witness absolved the A. F. of
L. from any complicity in this move
ment. It was engineered solely by
the extreme radical elements of the
labor movement, he said. These ele
ments he divided into three classes
anarchists. syndicalists and Social
ists.
"The American Federation of Labor
is as nearly 100 per cent loyal to
the country as it i8 possible to be."
he added, "and It opposes as a mat
ter of general principle any move
ment that hag for its purpose the
destruction of the fundamentals of
our government.**
At the end of the second day of the
controversy between ihe Commercial
Telegraphers' Union and the West
ern Union and Postal Telegraph
companies, both sides last night de
clared that victory was in sight.
The ranks of the striking keymen
are being augmented hourly, accord
ing to statements of several union
officials. With every change of shift
at the offices of the Postal and West
ern Union Telegraph companies, non
union telegraphers are being pre
vailed upon to cast their lot with the
strikers, it was said.
President W. F. McDonald, of lo
cal No. 24, last night stated that
more than 60 per cent of the Wash
ington employes of the Western
Union are out and that many more
people will walk out today.
for Early Victory.
"Several more multiplex opera
tors have joined our ranks," said
Mr. McDonald, "and we feel confi
dent that in another twenty-four
hours the companies will be forced
to call us back or import men and
women from other cities to man the
wires."
Officials of the telegraph compa
nies continue to affirm that the
strike is in no may affecting their
business.
"Messages are moving as usual."
said H. F. Taff, general superintend
ent of the Western Union Company.
"In fact, we do not know that a
strike is in progress. We have as
many people at work in our operating i
room as we did before the strike and I
everything is moving smoothly."
Several young women picketing the
two telegraph offices declared last j
night that a number of girls not mem-!
bers of the union have left the em
ploy of the companies since the begin
ning of the strike and more would be
prevailed upon to stop work "If their
fear of the Western Union black list
could be overcome."
See Doom of "KalaerlBm."
L?arge streatners were worn by the
strikers with inscriptions declaring
that when "Western Union Kaiserism"
was downed the telegraphers would
get their due.
