of Wednesday's action with regard to
the four-power and other treaties
awaiting senate action. The adminis

subsequent ratification calls they ex

they commanded today, while the
"irreooncilables" predicted that at
least seven and probably more who
voted tor the Tap treaty, or were
absent, would vote against the four
power pact.
