Administration forces arc planning
to appeal to the country in connection
with the fight in the Senate over rati
fication of the four Power Pacific
treaty and other compacts growing
o:it of the Conference for the Limita
lion of Armament. The appeal *v'H
1> directed by Senators themselves,
and will, in no sense, represent nn
rlVort on the part of President -lar
ding to bring public sentiment to bear
directly upon Senators.
Beginning to-morrow, a scries of
f- ceches will be made in the Sonatt
by thoee friendly to the Administra
i on viewpoint. Their purpose will he
in inform the public more fully -ihot.*
the treaties and explain what serioua
result might transpire if they were
rejected by the Senate. The first
sneech will he made by Senator ?w
find.). Senator Kellogg (Minn) will
.? peak on Tuesday. Other Admlnis- ;
tintlon Senators will follow.
Secretary Hughes will return to
"Washington Tuesday and will lie in
touch with Senators who are support
ing the treaty, lie will consult with
President Harding immediately upon his !
arrival here, with the view of chocking ;
up on what has happened during his ;
absence.
Majority 'Drlilml Trrntlr*.
While there have been many rumors
concerning defections among Kepubli- |
cans, the fact remains that the Re
publican majotlty is firmly hack of the j
treaties with the exception of tiie four
Jrreconcliables?Johnnon (Cat.). Borr.h
(Idaho), I.a Folicttc (WW.) and j
Fiance (Md.). Senators McCormlck |
(111.), Moses (N. II.) and Brand.gee '
(Conn.) are reported to be doubtful. J
but those closely in touch with thoni j
doubt the possibility <.f their putting
themSeives In opposition to the party j
program.
None of these three last named Sena- I
tors have said anything that will commit |
them to final opposition to the treaty. ,
They favor reservations and much is i
being made of the possibility of their :
opposition In order to win the ma
jority of the Republican support to the
reservation program.
Senator Kcllc*g (Minn ), who is lead
ing the flglu against all reservations,
lit-s talked with the President and has
again expressed his determination to
oppose all reservations.
Ucpublk-an leaders nro confident they
w ill be ablo to hold most of the Senate
In line regardless of what is done In the
m itter of reservations. Failure to ratify
tfirovgh the Instrumentality of the Dem
ocrats would be a repudiation of Senator
Oscar Underwood, Democratic floor
leader, and It is not believed this will or
can bo done.
It Is rcsrariled as certain that at least
thirteen Democratic Senators will sup
port the four Power pact, which Is the ,
only one of the treaties against which a
really vigorous fight will be made. Re
publican leaders say that nine Demo
cratic votes are all that will be required |
to make the ratification safe.
In spite of this honeful outlook the
Republican leaders realise that much op- ]
position will develop, ar.d with it an at- j
trmpt to filibuster for k limited period
on the part of the Republican irrrcon
cllables and the Democratic opposition I
t<> the treaty, led by Senator Reed |
(Mo.).
(?rest Help From llatthca.
Friends of the treaty are looking for
ward to the return of Secretary of State
Hughes with <*>nf'idence. They believe
(the Information he will be ready to give
concerning the negotiation of the trea
ties. and his conferences with the Prcsl
dent, will result In coordinating all the
elements in support for the pacts. 1
These personal conversations which |
the Senators will have with the Secre
tary of State will develop one phase of
the situation which is not susceptible of
fre? discussion on the floor of the Sen
ate. This will deal with the Importance
of ratification of the four Power pact
in order to bring about the abrogation 1
of the Anglo-Japanese alliance
The Secretary of Slate will find hN
time fully taken up upon his arrival.,
One of his tasks will be to negotiate a

Tourist agonclcs report there is a tre
mendous Interest shown by American
travelers In the resumption of the Pas
sion Play in Oberanimer^au. Represen
tatives sent to Bavaria to obtain hotel
accommodations from May to September
have brought back reports that all hotel
space has been reserved, chiefly by
Americans who visited there before tfie
war- and have written direct to assure
tiiey will have better sieepr.ig quartern
than army cotd In slubics and cellars, as
during the last presentation of the Pas
sion Play.
In some of the smaller villages inns
have b?i n leaved outright by American
travel syndicates, leaving only occa
sional upper floors available for the
visitors from other countries.
French agencies are trying to obtain
hotels in Munich for their clientele and
will run special motor cars to and from
the village, while those wishing to re
main overnight after witnessing the pi o
duction will be accommodated In tent
camps in the outskirts.
Although Anton Lang again will por
tray the character of Ckrllt, there are
new players in two of the Important
roles?Judas and the Virgin Mary? Hen
Stow, the former Judas, lost his voice
during the war. while the actress who
played the Virgin decided to wed a vet
eran of tl)e war. and as the success of
tlv.' Oberammergau Passion Play Is
ascribed to the sympathy of every mem
ber of the cast with hi* role, a young,
unmarried girl, who is employed in one
of the shops of the village. Is to repre

for the purpose of taking moving pic
tures of the play, although the actors
have been offered as high as 70.000.000
marks by a German firm, backed by
Amcrfc-an capital, for the exclusive
right*. This decision may be modified,
however, to enable the filming of the
Oberarnmerga-j stars In their homes and
shops, at their dally tasks, as the bur*
germeister and the clergy agree thl.
would prove valuable R? advertising,

The headless body of a young woman
which was recovered some days ago j
from the river at Msuriac .Hill is engag-'
ing the attention of the detectives sent |
from Paris. The mystery as to herj
Identity seems just as dense an that of.
the headless girl taken from the Seine i
fiv,> months ago and which is Mill un
solved. One theory is that the body is I
that of a dancing girl, and theaters Me
being asked to report any persons miss- j
ing frr.u their troupes.
Tills theory is based on the fat* the)
girl's legs were closely shaved. At first j
it was believed this had been done to ?
conceal some hirsute peculiarity, but I
closer examination showed the calf j
muscles had been developed the same as ?
those of the average ballet dancer. The i
ankles are extraordinarily small and the j
finger nails show signs of having been
constantly manicured. The police now j
are searching for a yellow automobile
which, according to the residents of sur
rounding villages, sped without lights
after midnight along the main highway
from Clermont-Ferrand.

RKIXIOX WITH LIBERALS
Coalition Said to Favor One

Loxno.v. March 5 <Associated Press).
?Prime Minister Lloyd George re
turned to London to-day from
Chequers Court, where his only iiolitl
c-al guest over the week end was
Charles A. McCurdy, chief Coalition
Liberal whip.
Shortly after arriving at Downing
Street t'.'.e Premier \va3 visited by
Lord Birkenhead, ihe Lord Hi?!"
Chancellor, and Winston Sp?ncer
Churchill, Secretary for tho Colonies.
The conference between the trio lasted
?in hour. Lord Birkenhead to-nl?ht
gave ;i political dinner in his town
residence.
The disposition in political quarters
In l.ondon seems to be to believe that
the climax In the crisis is not likely to
be reached before next Tuesday, when
Arthur J. Balfour is expected to deliver
un important speech in London. Ac
cording to an apparently Inspired state
ment Issued to-day there is no changc
in the situation. Mr. Lloyd George's
offer to resign has been he'd In abey
ance, but not withdrawn. He still in
awaiting assurances of the continued
loyalty of the Unionist party to the
coalition Government.
The Premier point* out that candi
dates arc being chosen in various con- :
stitucncies for the approaching' general
elections who openly disclaim Mr. Lloyd
George's leadership, yet receive the ap
proval of Unionist headquarters, and he
considers It impossible to go on under
such conditions. It Is further under
stood the Premier insists in the event
of a general election that there shall
be a more equal allocation of seats be
tween the Unionists and Liberals In
the coalition, whereas the Unionists
claim the preponderance of the seats.
Th?* situation is complicated by the
fact that while the Unionist members of
the Cabinet r.re earnestly urging the
Premier not to resign. th? Co:<lit.on
Liberal members of the Government ore
almost as anxious he should resign. i
They affect to see l'ttle prospc't of
success for the coalition in the general i
elections, and many of them are anxious ;
to seek a reunion with the Asqulth Lib
erals under Mr. Lloyd George's leader- ;
ship. They admit this solution of the j
situation presents difficulties, but they :
express the belief it might be accom-1
pliohed In time.
There Is a growing advocacy here of
a postponement of the Genoa economic
conference until after general elections
are held In TCngland. unless the present
crisis Is solved in such a manner as to
leave th" Premier with undiminished nu-;
thorlty.

I the main he differs from the National

tral enemy. He w is never elected to his

The resignation of Premier Ponlkovskl

The National democrats who have
most to gain by the Premier's fall and
who are accused of having utilized the

were themselves heartily in favor of an- j
negation of the Vllna region. Tkic Oer

Poland will extricate herself from the

nexation. Vilna's own elected repr<>

against consummating this inclusion.
The only Polish Government now
capable of taking office, it is held here,
is one which can mollify the Allies and
Russia and can swallow the defeat of
the Vllna adventure most gracefully. I
The plebiscite held under its auspices
and the I.cague of Nations itself are
blamed for tbe present confusion. Vilna

this end 000 carabineers have been sent
to reinforce an equal number of cara
bineers already in Flume. A brigade of
infantry is also on the spot, in addition
to a detachment of Alpine troops, while
the army corps 8t Trieste has been or
dered to supply further forces if these
should be considered necessary.
A council attended by the Premier,
members of his Ministry and Secretaries
of various government ll bureaus, as well
as military officials. after considering
the Flume coup, issued a statement that
action would b^ taken to pacify the
disturbed City.
Gabrlele d'Annunzlo has sent a mes
sage to Major Giuriatl. a member of
the Chamber of Deputies and who was
D'Annunzio's chief of Cabinet, and Dep
uty Giunta, both now at Flume, and a
Flume newspaper, declaring his support
of the present movement, lie says that
