(By Associated Press) The pos sibility that President Harding, after the formal conclusion of peace with Germany, may through extension of executive clemency open the doors of the Atlantic penitentiary to Eugene V. Debs, the So cialist leader, was suggested today by administration officials. V Speculation as to disposition of the Debs case has been wide spread in Washington for several weeks. Reports were general un til a few days ago, although without official confirmation, that At torney General Daugherty would recommend that the Socialist leader be pardoned. This belief, however, was lessened and in soma quarters entirety dissipated by the emphatic stand taken by Mr. Daugherty in bis American Bar association address of last Wednes day against release of which ha called -'political offenders."
