l CONSTANTINOPLE, June 2S. (By
The "Associated Press). Constantino-,
J pic Is beginning to feel, the effects of
the Greek advance. The Creek steam
er Yactnthus lias arrived here, having
on board slNty nationalist officers cap
tured June 23, and Greek refugees are
arriving from Black Sea ports and the
interior villages between Ismtd and
Constantinople. They report that the,
Turkish are burning Creek villages,
and shooting Greeks.
According to the refugees this 13 out
a forerunner of a general Moslem at- j
tack upon tho Greeks, which is ex-1
pected when the news generally is cir
culated through Anatolia of the Greek
advance. . , I
The Nationalists of Trcbizond pro-,
vlnce have begun deportation ofj
Greeks into the interior
Intending Movement.
Tho Greeks have landed forces along
the Gulf of Saros, will land additional
troops at Rodosto and soon will be
gin their movement from Occidental
into Oriental Thrace.
The Turks arc being nvacuated from
the shores of the Bosphorus to make
m shipping safe from snipers, and it is
SHI expected that a state of siege will be
tbM declared at Constantinople to give tno
I entente closer control of the civil pop
ulation. Cabinet Frames Protest.
The Turkish cabinet today framed!
' a protest to the entente against pre-
mature occupation of Anatolia while J
the treaty is pending. Apparently.,
however, tho entente holds that a
state of war exists, as representatives,
of the British and French high com-:
missioners visited the Sublime Porte,
and announced that they would begin 1
putting tlie treaty terms into cifec-i'
promptly. , , , J
Mustapha KemaJ Pasha, leader or,
the Turkish nationalists, gave his an-
proval to the reply of Turkey to the .
allied peace treaty The reply abso-
lutcly refuses to surrender Smyrna and
Thrace to the Greeks.
Depression Prevails.
Depression prevails in Turkish cir
cles over the news that the National-!
ists fled in disorder in the first attack
against them. The Turkish newspa-,
pers do not conceal their fear that the
situation is becoming grave owing to (
the reported heav losses of too Aa-
tionallst bands in the Ismid region,
where they are retiring.
Great Rejoicriiur.
There is great rejoicing among thej
Greeks in Constantinople over the ad-:
vance of the Greek army west of Ala
Shehr a walled town, the ancient'

SAN FRANCISO. June 27 When
i jlhc convention opens it will be con
j fronted by Issues which will for a cou
j pie of days overshadow booms for can
'di.dates. The issue talked about most
is the one involving the prohibition
amendment and its enforcement by
federal statute. The changes of atti
tude by the representatives of the
Knights" of Thipst have been kaleido
scopic in number and variety, if not
in speed. At first we had the cock
surp opponents of prohibition led by
Governor Edwards and heartily sec
onded by Governor Smith. Governor
I Edwards wanted to make his homo
stale as "wet as the Atlantic ocean"
and when Dame Fortune landed him
in the executive chair he attempted
to moisten all adjacent territory. He
'was3 o emboldened by his lucky strike
I that he blossomed out into a candidate
for president, and the brewers began j
to beat their torn toms throughout ail
the swampy sections of the country
Governor Smith Joins.
Then Governor Smith of New York
in a burst of enthusiasm, denounced
prohibition as worse than Prussianlsni i
and a Democratic state convention j
held in New York declared unalterable,
if not unmutterable, opposition to the
national amendment and pledged the'
party to nullify by state statute any
federal law enforcing it during the, ;
as they hoped, short period that might
elapse" between the date of the con
vention and the nations' return to the
saloons. The men who felt that the
right to poison others with alcohol
was the only inalienable right guar
anteed by the constitution and the
right to drink intoxicants tlie only
kind or liberty represented by Colum
bia, proceeded to tell tlie Democratic;
party where to head in on the liquor)
question. The wet propaganda received ,
copious encouragement from a number J
of organizations In different parts ofj
the country. Even the supreme court
decision did not discourage them. They
descended on the convention like an
army with banners, foaming like a
glass of beer and raging like strong
drinks. While there Is some rivalry
among those who aspire to lead 'this
motley host, the Honorable James Nu
gent of New Jersey will probably be
given the distinction of being flag
bearer, his fitness for the place having
been attested by his closeness to tho
New Jersey brewers and by the fact
that he was one of the four Democrat '
members of the resolutions committee i
in the St. Louis eomention of 191C
who brought in a minority report
against admtlting women, the implaca
ble foes of the dram shop, to full citi
zenship and suffrage. Two of his three
compai riots on (hat occasion were an
Indiana brewer and a governor of Tex
as who has since been impeached. But
the "Lights are out in the Capitol," so
to speak: the advocates of wine and
boor have come up against a stone
wall. They have counted noses, regard
less of color, and the.- find thai they
cannot hepe to poll a majority, prob-1
ably not a third in favor of any wet j
plank, no mailer how amb;guous ils

poses. . We do not turn our backs upon
the history of the last three years.
We seek no avenuo oi wstreat. We
insist that the forward course Is the
only righteous course. j
Fruit of Victory.
"We seek to re-establish the fruits
of victory, to reinstate the gooit falih
of our country and to restore it to Its
rightful place among the nations of
the earth. Our caus" constitutes a
summons to duty. Tho heart of
Ainerica stirs again. The ancient faith
revives. The Immortal part of man
speaks for us. The services of the past, j
the sacrifices of war, the hop' of the I
future, constitute a spiritual force
gathering about our banners. We shall
releaso again the checked Comes of
civilization and America, shall take up
once more the leadership of llrv
world."
Peace- Achievements.
Peaeo achievements of the Dcmo-j
cratlc party, ho assorted, "freo'lj
the farmer from the deadening effectr
of usurious financial control. Labor
was given Its Magna Charta of liber-j
ty. Business and finance were re-i
leased from the thralldom of uncc.--!
talntyand hazard." 1
"The Income tax law," he Bald, "re
lieved our law of the reproach of
being unjustly burdensome to tho
poor. The extravagance and inequi
ties of the tariff system were removed
and a non-partisan tariff conimh-l
slon created. P'an-Amerlcanlsm wa3
encouraged and the bread thu casii
upon- Ihe waters came back to us
many fold. Alaska was orJened toj
commerce and development. Dollar
diplomacy was destroyed. A corrupt
lobby was driven from the national
capltol. An 'effective Seaman's Act
was adopted. The federal trade com
mission was created. Child labor leg-,
bflatlon was enacted. The larcel Pont'
and the Rural Free Delivery were de
veloped. A good roads bill and a rural
credits act wer pare?d. A secretin'
of labor was given a scat in the cab
lnent of tho president. Right hour
laws were adopted. Tho Clayton
Amendment to the Sherman anti-trust
acl was passed, freeing American la
bor and taking It from tho lis' of com
modities. The Smith-Lever bill for ihe
Improvement of agricultural conditions
was passed. A corrupt pracMccs act
was adopted. A well considered ware
house act was passed. Federal em
ployment bureaus were created. Farm
loan banks, postal savings banks and
the federal reserve system w-ro cslao
lished. Federal Reserve System.
"The federal reserve system, passed
over the opposition of tho leaders of
tho Republican party, enabled Ameri
ca to withstand IV10 strain of war with
out shock or panic an 1 ultimately
mndo our country the greatest credb
tor nation of ihe world."
Turning to the record of tho Repub

defend themselves against the attack
of the drys who arc already crossing
"no man's land." There are some in
tho convention thore always are
some In a political convention who
dodge whenever any issue arises. They
would amend the ten commandments
If by so doing they could suppress a
roll call, for be it remembered that it
is impossible to bring a thousand men
together without Including a few who
"love darkness rather than light," for
the old reason so clearly set forth in
Holy Writ. Light is as wholesome
in politics as it is sanitary. For this
reason all legislative bodies provide
for a roll call and no one who has ever
been .a member of a legislative body
needs to be told that the vote on roll
call often differs materially from the
viva voce vote. I have known a vote
; to adjourn to be carried overwhelm
ingly by the voice and defeated over
whelmingly on roll call. The dry rely
upon the moral strength of their cause
and the spirit of those who sent these
delegates to the convention.
The country is dry even when the
men alone vote. It iB parched and
bi own when women vote and it seems
quite certain that about 20,000,000 of
j women will sit in judgment upon the
'candidates presented by the various
parties this year. As nearly all of
these women can lead note the large
percentage of girls In high schools
the writing of plalforins becomes an
important matter. A convention is
made up for the most pnrt of people
who have political ambition more or
less clearly developed and the fear of
the voter is the beginning of wisdom
in popular government.
Show Up Delegates.
'11. maj be stated without fear or
successful contradiction that tlie dele
gates to ihfs convention will have an
opportunity to vote for or against a
dry piank. This v-ill give every state
a chance to go on 'ecord. And, as ev
3r delegate has .tlie right to demand
a pol. of his dele&alion, there 5s no rea
son why any delote should lack an
opportunity to make his vot- lnown
to his constituents or allow a col
league to 01 awl in under the brewpry
tent without idei'Mfication. In o!hc-r
words .those who want nn open plai
ffrm '.pniy amved at will be accom
modated iiud those who want to hide
will act with full knowledge that their
sin will lind lhem out.
Bryan's Dry Plank.

from Ihe comuiitlci" on resohidon but
I shall submit to the conven'ion for

with profiteering, reduction of taxa
tion, .aid for soldiers on-1 law to lm-
prove relations of capital and labor
I wore Ignored, he declared, and "after
a year of sterile dcbalf our co;:ntry
has neither p&ace nor reconstruction."
Attacks on Wilson.
He dwelt pariicularlv on attacks
made upon tho president. Malice:
then followed him to the peace table,
he said, and widespread propaganda
made it Imperative when ho rolurned j
from Paris to "make a struggle for
that which had been won at incalcula
ble cost. This meant wreck of health,
sickness for months on a bed of pain;
and worse, tho sickness of heart which
comes from the knowledge that politi
cal adversaries are savagely destroy
ing not merely the work of men's
hands, but tho world's hope of settled
peace. This as the affliction this
the crucifixion."
Mr. Cummings continued that In one
sense "it is quite Immaterial what
people say about the president'. Noth
ing we can say can add or detract
from the fame that will flow down
the unending channels of history."
j He cited the Republican and Pro
jgresslve platforms of 191C as part of
the record placing this country in fa
Ivor of the league of nations.
I G. O. P. Platform Vogue.
"The Ropubllan .platform contains
'a vague promise to establish another
: or a differing form of association," he
I said. "There Is no mental dishonesty
'more transparent than that which ex
I presses fealty to tho league of nations
'while opposing the only leagile that
I exists or is over apt to exist.
"What nations stand outside? Revo
lutionary Mexico. Bolshevik Russia,
unspeakable Turkey and the United
States.
"It Is imt yet too late. Let us stand
with the forces of civilization. Tho
cholco Is plain. It Is between the
Democratic party's support of the
league of nations, with Its program
of peace, disarmament and world fra
ternity, and the Republican party's
platfor m or repudiation, provincialism
militarism and -world chaos "

touch to the picture. A great gold
decorated and high backed velvet
arm chair placed near tho front of
the stage accentuated the cathedral
impression. It was explained that the
chair was meant for the chairman, but
it looked as though it had been built
for a potentate.
Delegates working for special causes
they hope to have recognized In the
party platform were busy early cir
culating among delegates distributing
literature. The leaflets and cards re
lated to tho causo of Irish freodom
and other questions which are being
presented to the resolutions commit
tee. The band swung Into a mcdloy of
national airs and when it struck
"Dixie" the southern delegates got
their first chance to let oul tho rebel
yell. They ctood on chairs and waved'
their banners, boating time with the
music.
News' of the maneuvering still In
progress among the platform, makers
on the outside drifted Into the halli
with tho ascmbling delegates. H was
said that those expecting a hard fight
from Bryan on the league of nations
Plank would be agreeably disappoint
ed, as Mr. Bryan had drafted a league
plank which tho administration forces
would accept and support. It was also,
reported about the convention hall,
much lo the relief of some of tne ad-i
ministration leaders that Mr. Bryan
would not make any fight for a plank j
for government ownership of rail-
roads.
Taggart Arrives i
When Tom Taggart arrived in tho '
space set apart lor the Indiana dele
gation he got a reception from his own j
crowd, -winding up with three chcera
and a tiger. '
The Palmer men from Pennsylvania
enlivened they roceedlngs between the
band selections with a cnorua of songs.
Some or tho attorney general's sup
porters In another part of the hall re
sponded with a roaring P-A-L-M-I3-K.
Exactly at 12 o'clocK, the hour at I
which the convention was called to
convene the color guard of marines j
detailed to take part in the opening 1
eremonlea lined up behind the chair
man's table. Thero were two buglers,1
a color bearer and two sergeants
armed with service rifles and their
dress uniforms added another pretty
touch of color.

post, and their appearance did not.
causo a stir.
Balnbrldge Solby, secretary of state,
the administration floor leader, ar-j
rived promptly at noon and took his
scat with the District of Columbia del-,
cgatlon.
The Palmer delegations seemed to
be monopolizing the preliminary dem-
onatrations. h.very few minuter a new
song for Palmer would burst out from
501110 part of the hall where a group
waved Palmer flags and pennants
Then it would be answered from a
Palmer group in some other corner
Meanwhile the aisles were becoming
crowded but there still were many
empty scats.
TlekcLs Arc Missing
The galleries particularly nad whole
tiers empty and it .- 3 said ihey were
slow in ulling be'eause of the close in
spection to wnlch all admissions were
subjected. There wore reports of
whole blocks of tickets having disap
peared and tho convention officials
were irymg to check up.
A good solid table, which looked as
though It would stand up undei a
great deal of gavel punlsnmont hadl
uecn provided for tho conention,
chairman, and the little square en-'
closure where it stood, jutting out
from the front of the platform, looked
for all the world like a boxing arena,
fenced off with three inch ropes, tied
In great frazzling knots at tho corners. ;
At 20 mlnuies past 12, platforsu of-
ficlals said the delay In starting the
convention was due to the contusion
around the doors.
Chairman Cummings and other oC-,
ficlals of the national committee were)
in the committee's office back of the
siase waiting for the door-keepers- to
get the ticket situation stralgntoned. j
When the band swung into "I Love j
You California." the California dele-j
gates and spectators let out a roar of
applause and cheers. Just before
12:30 Vice Chairman Bruce Kreiner!
ot the Democratic national committee
got into position at the desk and made
an attempt to call ihe convention to,
order. Immediately the shrill, clear
notes of the marines' bugle rang ouL .
tnrough the hall, and the band and j
organ together swung Into. "The Star
Spangled 'Banner." A tremendous j
! American flag rolled up high to the
celling wan unloosed and rolled down
In back of the speaker's platform.

rolling throbbln noies of the national I
anthem. . j
. , Plc'lulf! of ."WIlMlll.
Then as the slnglrig was concluded,;
the flag was rolled un again, dlsclos-:
Ing an Immense portrait of President1
Wilson. It was tne signal for an out-!
burst of cheering and continued ap
Iplause. the delegates standing on
clialrs waving flags, shouting and ap-
plaudlng.
I Cheers, rebel yells and shouts cut
I tho air of the big hall as the band
whopped up "Hall to the Chler." When
I a demonstration had been rolling
along for five minutes. Vice Ohalr-
man Kremer mado an- attempt toj
! bring the convention to order and go
'ahead with business, but the delegates
I would have none of it. The applause!
and cheers kept on coining In rolling
waves and tho repeated rapping of the
gavel was only answered with cries
of "Sit down!" and "Hurrah for Wil
son!" Noise Continues.
Standards were puilcd up from the
1 places marking the delegations on the1
floor and the demonstrationists began j
organizing a procession aobut the
aisles such as always takes place in ai
convention hall when a candidate Is!
being placed In nomination. Mr. Kre
mer rather rravo up the idea of get
ting the convention in order while It
wanted to demonstrate for Woodrow
Wilson, so he smilingly stood at his
desk and let the noVe go on. After a
fow more minutes assisted by tho
band, Kremer made another uttcmpt
to quiet the tumult and got the con-'
entlon going. He was only answered
by more rolling choruses of shouts of
"Hurrah for Wilson!" While thej
demonstration was going on, tho gal
leries sat In an Interested way, but
took little part In It. The whooping,
roaring delegates parading on the
floor, however, drowned out the band
at times.
I Roosevelt Gets In Bad.
Whllo tlie demonstration was at its
height, Franklin D. Roosevelt, assist
ant secretary of tho navy, picked up
the standard of the New York delega
tion and got into the Wilson parade.
Other members of the delegation ob-j
Jccted and there was a scramble. In 1
which a policeman took the part of
the delegates who tried to stop Roose
velt. There was a lively scramble for
a moment in which Roosevelt won out
and went off with tho standard, join
ing the demonstration. Fists flew
thick and fast for tho moment and
It looked as if .oinobody was going to
be- hurt. As it turned out no damage'
was done.
.More attempts at order and more
car-smashing whackln of the gavel
brought only more cheers. The dele
gates evidently wanted to demonstrate
for Wilson and did not Intend to be
stopped until they had finished.
At 12: -15 o'clock the demonstration
began dying away find the vice chalr
jman gave the orders to the scrgeants-jat-arms
lo clear tho aisles.
I Mr. Kremer finally succeeded In
I making himself heard and Monslgnor
j Ryan, vicar general of San Francisco,
offered a prayer.
SAN FRANCISCO. June 2S. An In
novation for the opening of the Dem
jocratlc national convention was tho
silencing great gathering by a bugle
call instead of the usual pounding with
the gavel. A detachment of marines In
front ot the platform wore to raise
the national colors and present arrps
while tho band played Tho Star
Spangled Banner.
The arrangement was made by Sec
retary of tho Navy Daniels at the sug
gestion of First Sergeant II. Horn
bostcl, chief of the secretary's per
sonal escort.
SAN FRANCISCO, June 2S. Wil

SAN FRANCISCO. June 27. Ono
'record has already been established by
this Democratic convention anyway.
Less standing around has been donoj
I to dato than at any othqr polltlca' ;
gathering in years past. . I
In the first place it Is practically
Impossible to stand around 'for any
length of time, especially in the hotel
I lobbies, because the congestion io so
I great, lhatthe natural ebb and flow
(keeps a man moving; -J
. You pick out a nice spot to do a
bit of standing around in, and almost
'immediately you are dislodged by the
'violent impact of some prominent gen
tleman. This morning we are knocked
loosp from throe separate and distinct
moorings as follows:
(a) From the cigar counter by Mr.
Burleson, the postmaster general.
(b) From the cashier's window by
Mr. Ray Baker, the director of the
mint.
(c) From the soft drink bar by
Riley Wilson, of Charleston. W. Va.
Peeved at Uurlesuii.
. Of the three collisions we resented
jthat of Mr. Burleson most. We felt
ithat It might have been due to Mr.
Burleson's more or less well known
animus towards newspapers, and that
he sensed the fact that we have a
newspaper connection.
It Is easy enough to tell newspaper
people around here. Dumber people
!than Mr. Burleson find It easy. Every
I person who Isn't a delegate is bound
I lo be a newspaper party.
In the second place, reverting back
I to this paucity of standing around,
thore are too many places to seo In
San Francisco for anyone to waste
time standing around.
There are also things to seo. In
fact the places break about even with
the things. Much of tho glory of San
Francisco may have departed, to hear
the graybeards mumble It, but It Is
still a great old town. Bill Irwin once
I wrote a story about "The City That
Was." He ought to be here today to
(write about "The City That Is."

Is nothing doing in . San Francisco
nowadays is. in the classic language
of the "roaring forties," full of
prunes. California prunes.
Part of the convention evaporated
today, although you could scarcely
notice It from the hotel lobbies. They
were jammed several ways from the
Jack, but even so they lacked that full-iln-the-face
expression of the day bc
fore. and last night,
j The delegates had taken their wives
land gone out to tho benches, or across
the bay, or down tho state.
This is ono of the greatest bring-your-own-wlfc
conventions that tho
world has over seen. The ladles .-dd
much to tho natural color, and beauty
of the city. Tho assemblage is tak
ing On tho ospect of a family affair,
and naturally the women folks want
lo see something of this part of the
world of which they have heard so
much.
Tho weather has been delightful for
the past few day3. It has been sunny.
et cool enough for comfort. The
delegates who have never been here
before are so enthusiastic about San
Francisco weather that vc would bo
tlie last to reveal the secret which ev
ery loyal son of the Golden Gate Is
carrying locked in his bosom.
However, if these delegates keep on
Inquiring:
"Where's that fog, and wind. I heard
you had here at this time of year?"; if
they persist In that qery to the ex
tent that Ihey make it appear as a
reproach that they haven't had the
advertised weather condiments, why.
then San Francisco is apt to produce
something to that effect before tho
week is out.
For your San Franciscan Is nothing
if not hospitable. He strives to please.
Ho has been pouring out sunshine with
bountiful hand, feeling that Is what
tho delegates want, but. If Ihey are
dead set on fog and wind, he will see
that they hnve fog and wind, and may
bo a dash of rain or two.

SAN FRANCISCO. June 27. This
convention is booked solid for this
week with matinee on Saturday, In
stead of having visiting days Tuesday
and Thursday like any other sanitar
ium. After the political mountain has la
bored and brought forth a candidate
tlie delegates will dlsentregate and,
sneak back to tho enveloping sha''owsi
of home cooklngx There will ensue. !our
more lean, starving badgcless years of(
existence. A delegate without his;
badges Is an awful thing. j
Rob the peacock of his tall, strip J
the Smith brothers of thoir whiskers,
j swindle Woodrow Wilson of his dally
veto, but don't touch a hair on one of
these delegates badges. Like the
crown Jewels of the czars, they speak,
glories of the Democratic past, the
anxiety of the present and the hopc-
j les3iiess of the future. Yea bo.
i The convention opens deadlocked.
The league Of nations is dead and-the
wine cellar Is locked. If that ain't a
deadlock, then Solomon was a bache
lor. In an extra pink edition, the Pollco
Gazette has come out strongly against
Lew Dockstader. so it looks as If the
Democratic leaders will have to pick a
candidate out of Pantages circuit.
The Hagerstown almanac Is non
partisan, but In an Impassioned ap
peal to four taxlcab drivers, the editor
of Sears, Roebuck catalogue steps out
for Nicky Arnsteln for secretary of
treasury.
This naturally tics up the tableaux
vlvant like a sore toe. In case, tho
j Hawaiian delegates try to stampede
I the works towards a ukulele player.
the Sears Roebuck catalogue will con
j cede nothing, claim everything and de
i mand a recount. This is one cata
logue that Is abso on the up and up
and totally unsubaldlzed. With the
millions of installment inhabitants in
back of It. they can sure make the
leaders walk pretty.
It looks from tho nickel seats, as If
the paper bathing suiit and the barbed
wire sox will go to a compromise can-
jdldate. With Bryan,-Wilson and Bill
Lyons, the pie-eyed piper, all tangled
I up In a private quarrel In public, there
is no way out but by the compromise
route.
A compromise candidate Is a guy
you don't like but you accept him.
f. o. b. convention, because you know
the other guys don't Ilka him either.
What could be fairer?
That's the way the works stand now
with everybody cutting out paper kew.
pies and watching he other party like
a bartender piking a hokey inching
over toward tho free lunch counter.
The Issue rests on Bill Bryan's open
j ing chorus. Bill s a linguist- who
speaks from all corners of the mouth
and If he happens to accidentally say
I something sensible, there ain't no say
1 Ing what will happen.
j He may grab another nomination
for his trophy room and use the ant
' lers for a bookmark.

Vice President Says He Will Do H
Anything to Aid Demo- H
cratic Party H
SAN FRANCISCO. Juno 27. Tho .
'Indiana delegation has decided to pre-
'sent Vice President Marshall's name
to the convention for president. Mr.
I Marshall in a speech told the lioosicr
j delegates they had his consent, al- IH
though he did not wish to make tho
i fight, even with assurances of noml
I nation, but desired to aid stale and IH
national Democracy.
! Me. Marshall said:
i "I have told Senator Taggart and jH
Governor Ralston and told them
j truthfully, that I had no desire to bo .
nominated for tho presidency; that
my one political desire was to restore
Indiana to tho Democratic column;
; that I was not sufficiently conversant
with the situation in Indiana to know
what would best aid In bringing about
that result. 1 said if Governor Ral
ston desired tho nomination for vice
president I would gladly go down the
line for him. Then I said if it would
help the Democratic cause in Indiana
I tho delegates had my permission to
I vote for me in convention for prcsl- i
dent.
"I repeat that statement to you. I '
honestly do not want lo make tho
fight, even though I could be noml- H
nated. but I do desire to do all I can
for the Democracy of Indiana. I do
not. however, propose to -bo .charged
with bad faith In having secretly
! sought the nomination. You are free
I to do as you please, with this one pro
I vlso. that you arc doing it for the good H
, of tho party In Indiana and not for IH
! mopcrsonally, nor at my solicitation."
The Indiana delegation placed the IH
! vice president on the committee on IH
resolutions. He is preparing a plat
form declaration In favor of ratlflca
tion of the Versailles treaty, including
1 the league covenant, without modiflca- IH
, lions, but with the proviso that if, IH
' after a fair trial of the agreement it IH
I should prove to bo detrimental to jH
j American interests and rights this
country should demand amendments
I or withdraw. He takes tho position !
; that ll cannot bo determined In ad- 'aM
'vance what, if any. provisions of tho'
covenant will Impair American rights IH
and that the only practical test Is a IH
trial of the agreement by actually put
ting it into operation. ,H
