THE WASHINGTON TBEES. TUESDAY, JUNE IS, 191S. 7 . ores FAVORS PLAN -TO WIDEN E DRAFIAG HIT Congress as a whole la strongly In Savor pf chancing the draft aces, thus removlnj; the dancer that deferred Classes will be drawn upon next year. Fear that Congress would not ap "prove increasing the age up to forty UTe or Ofty has deterred Provost Mar .ahal General Crowder from pressing It before this. But Crowder has now keen assured that Congress will not only "stand tor" radical revision of tho age limits, but Will welcome it. At a -conference a few days ago with House leaders Crowder asked whether Congress would pass an amendment raising the maximum limit to forty-five or fifty years. "Te, and while you are about It, Siake the lower limit eighteen Instead of twenty-one," one House member told Crowder. It was after receiving this assurance that Crowder brought pressure to bear on Secetary Baker, which resulted In Baker allowing him to lay the matter before the Senate Military Committee. f Preparation of amendments to the rmy bill, to change the draft ages, ' was begun today by several Senators. Varying opinions are held as to the ages that should prevail, some fa Torlng twenty-one to forty, others eighteen to forty-five, and some nineteen to fifty. Members from agricultural States and from munitions centers are eager to amend the law so that their com ununltles will not be robbed of the men In class 4, who, according to Crowders predictions, would be call ed soma time next year If the War Department decided to go Into de f erred classes instead of getting more men into class 1.

MIXED BATHING Ml QPUPn P AT ni SENATORS WAN T TO MAKE CHANGES IN DRAFT TREATY Differences of opinion among mem bers of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee threatened today to cause further delay In the ratification of the recently negotiated draft treaty with the British government. Members of the subcommittee which has charge of the treaty hoped to be able to straighten out the hitch with out sending the treaty back to the State Department again for revision. It was understood, however, that the committee was unwilling to recom mend the treaty to the Senate in Its present form until soma agreement could be secured to clarify the phraseology of the convention. The treaty Itself would have the ef fect of drafting all Americans In British territory between the ages of eighteen and forty-nine. Inclusive. In an agreement entered Into between the tww governments outside of the treaty it is understood that the United States will exercise Its right to ex empt Americans In British territory Dot within the American draft age limits. Some Senators were In doubt as to the advisability of ratifying the treaty without a distinct provision in its text regarding the draft age to be applied to Americans abroad. The greatest care must be exercised In passing finally upon the treaty, they declared, because of the fact that it la to serve as a model for similar con ventions between all the allies.
