"REMODELING A WIFE" Appears Today on Pace 7 of The Washington Herald THE WEATHER-v Today?Fair and continued cold; to morrow warmer. Detailed weather re port on Editorial Page. NO. 4827 WASHINGTON, D. C? THURSDAY, JANUARY 15, 1920. LODGE TREATY TO PASS THIS MONTH, BELIEF 1 Non-Partisan Observers See Reservations Adopted Without Hitch. PRESIDENT WILL YIELD Senators Feel He Will Not Refuse to Promulgate Pact. 1 Certain Senators who carefully are following the treaty situation, and who are sufficiently detached from the partisan fight to be able to see clearly, express the opinion that the treaty, with substantially tha Lodge reservations, will be adopted by the Senate the latter part of the present month. They believe the President will yield. While he may be opposed to part or all of the reservations, those Senators believe his opposition will not be carried to the point of a re fusal to promulgate the treaty. They do not think the President's Jackson Day statement stands in tha way of, juch action. Mast Keep Faith. The President having negotiated the treaty finds he must be its advocate, la good faith to himself and the al lies, he must fight for the approval of the treaty as it came from Ver sailles. The representatives of the other powers that participated in the treaty negotiations urged the ap proval of the document upon their respective governments. The group of Senators whose views are summarised above do not believe any power seriously will object to any reservation which now seems likely of adoption. A refusal by any power to accept a specific reservation would raise a distinct issue between that power and the American Senate, which would be too unfortunate to be per mitted to happen. Thus, the reserva tions which seem likely of adoption, however well they may or may not better protect American interests, are not such as to render nugatory the work of the peace conference. \oa-PartlaaJsa Get Ummj. .An effort to bring about non partisan action looking toward ratification of the peace treaty by compromise was started yesterday by Senators Ken yon. of Iowa. Re publican. acta Owen, of Oklahoma. Democrat. These Senators have undertaken to call a conference of all friends of the treaty without respect to party,, for the purpose of seeing whether it will be possible to agree on reserva tions which sixty-four Senators may be willing to support. Senator Kenyon agreed to name eight Republican Senators who will participate in such a conference, and Senator Owen expected to sup ply eight Democratic Senators who will do likewise. It is planned to have these sixteen Senators formu late the call for the conference and to direct its activities along lines that might lead to a compromise. Senators Kenyon and Owen decided it would be better not to have Sena tors Lodge, Hitchcock and Under wood take part in the conference, l The presence of these Senators, they explained. might complicate the ef forts toward a compromise by in-1 jecting partisanship and rivalry Into the situation. The leadership contest between Senators Hitchcock and Underwood is delaying all negotiations between the ratificationists of both parties. This contest Is to be settled at the Democratic conference today. Re publican and Democratic Senators i alike have agreed to hold off any definite step* toward agreeing on | reservations until it is known whether Senator Hitchcock or Sena tor Underwood is to be the minority , leader.

Plumb, author of the Plumb plan for the operation of the railroad*, has come forward with another plan which he declares to be virtually a "program for the ap-, plication of the Plumb plan to in dustry." Proposing, a* he did with regard ' to the railroad*, a trl-partite con trol by the public, capital and labor, ?Mr. Plumb appends details as to the remedy for existing ills, and suggests a political program to make his proposal the policy of the iAmerican people. In a prefatory Dfrte. he ha* this to say: ' '"Under the existing system there is no point of common interest be tween society's need, the proflt seeking of capital, and the interest of labor. The three fundamental interests are held apart by wholly diverse attitudes towards the indus try. The public seeks to buy as cheaply as it can without reward to profits or wages. Capital seeks to obtain the highest profit it can without regard to the need of so ciety or the rights of labor; and the laborer, being treated as the mer chandiser of a commodity, naturally seeks to sell as little of that com modity an he can for as much as he can get, without due regard for the interest of capital or the need of society." Indn?try la Four Part*. Industry is divided into four parts by Mr. Plumb?the Individual owner, the producer whose industry is such that he is apart from the actual l&boi, public service corporations, and last ly the railroads. "The public, capital, and labor are at perpetual war with each other." says Mr. Plumb. "Prices bear no re lation to actual costs or needs Wages bear no relation to service rendered. We produce non-essentials, and suffer for lack of necessaries. The cost of living becomes insupport able. We are caught In our own ruthless machinery of privilege. "In every industry there are three interests; first, the need of society for the products; second, the rights of those who furnish capital, and. third, labor, which is the creative human impulse. These are equal In importance to the exigence of the in dustry, and should be clothed with equal authority. "The measure of what every man should receive for hi* service in the four divisions of industry should be an equivalent amount In value of the services of others. Human Right Set Aside. "The wage system disregards this human right. Under it a man re ceives only enough for his service, whatever be its value to society, as will cover the bare necessities of existence. To restore democracy, so ciety should have profits on socl fcty*a Investment, as expressed in grants, in the shape of better, eheap er and more service. Capital should get a fixed and guaranteed return, at the rate which procures the ac ceptance at par of the securities which represent investment. Labor should receive that rate of wages which procures the service of ee~h class of labor, and. In addition, should have Its share of all of the sav ings which labor can effect In the processes of production. "All of the savings should be even ly divided between the public, as consumers, and labor, as producer*. "In the Industries based on a grant, capital and labor Jointly should di vide the half apportioned to pro ducers, the other half accruing to the public as reflected In reduced price to consumer. In Industries not based on a grant, oapital and labor should share In the direction and control equally, and distribute profits in the proportion which their re spective Investments bear to each other. "Thus every producer would re ceive, as producer. In Increased earn ing power one-half of all efficiencies created 1b the processes of Indus* try. and, as consumer, he would re ceive In increased purchasing power of his earnings or.e-half of all ef ficiencies created by all other pro* duoers in all other industries."

The Senator has prepared a bill on the subject, but may not introduce it until after the coming election. The idea Senator Kenyon has in mind is to make the President's Cabinet a more responsible part of the government and to give its members a larger share of respon sibility to Congress and the people. He believes that If the people knew the character of the Cabinet before hand they would be in a better po sition to judge whether the Presi dential candidate himself could properly be entrusted with the af fairs of the government.
