LEAGUE OF NATIONS j Says People Are Convinced Something Must Be Done to Prevent Wars. Washington, July 17.?Announc-j ing his support of the principles in-1 volved in the league of nations coveI nant, but withholding judgment re.garding certain reservations, Senator Colt, Republican, of Rhode Is- j land, told the senate today that the i nation "must at least see the great undertaking upon which we have em-' barked on entering the war through J to the end, which can only be done by our becoming a member of the j league." j The Rhode Island senator declar- j <ed himself unable to agree with the objections that the league would. create a super-state or subvert the T-T c\ ccjifl COI!SUlUtlun? liv ^ however, that the Monroe Doctrine must be clearly safeguarded and domestic quest/ions left for national action. / t "The league of nations in its essence ;s simply an association of free nations," he said. "The principle of international coopera t\c.: as the means by which international peace can be made secure has never been tried before. All other means of preventing war have failed. Not to try this experiment would leave the world in the same condition of international anarchy as it was before the war. There is no antagonism between true nationalism and an internationalism which would substitute the reign of Jaw for the reign of force. " ? _ -! 1 dee it rimsnea. j "if we believe that it would be1 dishonorable to withdraw from Europe at this time, to desert France,! England and Italy in this critical hour, when the whole world is in a turmoil, ?hen the United States should certainly remain in the league during' this world settlement and until peace and order are restored. To j I mv mind we must at least see the j .great undertaking upon which we embarked in entering the war through to the end. and, as a part of this' undertaking, we must help to reestablish a new world order by the enforcement of the tennis . ci peace, wh:th can only be done by our becoming a lhember of the league of nations. ''I believe the great mass of the . American people are convinced tiin: / something must be done to prevent future wars. They want something con^. They do not want to leave 1 % t ^ the world in its old condition auu thev favor the league of nations, based upon international cooperation, as the best solution of the problem. I am in favor of the principles embodied in the league of nations. This does not mean that I have reached sl decision that the league should be ratified in the precise form in which it is now presented. , ! One and Inseparable. f i "There has been much controversy over the question whether the league should not be separated from the peace treaty. I have always believed the league to be inseparable from tne peace treaty because the treaty can not be enforced except through the league. The peace treaty leaves the vcrld cn fire, with national aspirations unsatisfied, territorial limits undefined, racial conflicts impending, and with incipient wars already- started. If it is unthinkable for us to desert England, France and Italy' when the world is in chaos, we must become a member of the league as providing the only machinery for the restoration of peace and order. - - - "The provisions of the league wixn respect to arbitration or investigation and report have been critcised as strong enough but they clearly will tend to prevent war. [ "As to the general objection thatj 'he league creates a super-State and hence is destructive of our independence and sovereignty, I am unable to see the force of the arguments in support of this proposition. A super-State can not be formed when * every material power that is exercised by the league requires the unanimous consent of the executive conncil or the delegates. Treaty-Making Power. "Nor am I impressed with the constitutional objections. The . treatymaking power under the ocnstitution is the broadest character and it includes everything that is properly covered by the term treaty and is not in conflict with some express provisions of the constitution. ' "I believe the popular sentiment is universal, and I certainly share it, that the Monroe Doctrine should be clearly safeguarded. I also believe that domestic questions, like immigration which in some of their aspects may be international, should be properly safeguarded. The storm center of these reservations seems to he article ten. As to the retention of ihis article may be saki on hotL sides. It may be argued that the United States ought to bind itself SENATORS BEGIN TO 1 CALL ON PRESIDENT I Colt Says President Placed the Shantung Matter in Altogether New Light. Washington, July 17.?How the;' Versailles conference reached many j of the agreements embodied in the ; < treaty of peace was described by ] President Wilson today to three Re- ji publican senators invited to the White House at the head of a long j t list of Republican members whom he 2 purposes to take into his conference.

Senator Mc-!? Cumber of North Dakota and Sena- a tor Nelson of Minnestota, the other t senators who saw the president were; a reticent as to the subjects discussed'5 but said the president had given them 1 much interesting information. Sena- I tor Colt who announced his general J approval of the league of nations in a r senate speech delivered shortly b*!- s fore he went to the White House, in- 1 dicated after ii.e conference that his c doubt ever certain portions of the 1 league covenant 'had been cleared, e He said he was not ready to express an opinion regarding* Shantung and t intimated that the president might r make a public statement soon on the t subject. ji Discuss Situation. ; 1 Senator McCumber is the only Re-!r publican member of the foreign re- t lations committee who has favored 1 the league and it is understood that'i Mr. Wilson talked over with him j committee action on the treaty and I the general situation on the Kepuo-;x lican side of the senate. Senator ( Nelson never has made a public dec- t laration foi? or aga'nist the treaty, j To all of his callers the president is I said to have reiterated his opposition to reservations of any character in ( senate ratification of the treaty. The president tomorrow will con- j tinue his talks with senators inciin ed to be friendly toward the treaty j provisions, though it is expected that later he will see a conference with virtually every Republican senator ( including those who have most bit-; trely opposed ratilicaiion.

While ! the president was beginning his i White House conferences the senate; debated Shantung and4he league and ! adoptd without a record vote a reso-1 lution by Senator Borah, Republican, j of Idaho, asking for information relative to the Shantung negotiations. ,c Specifically the measure, which was ( not debated, asks the president lor,1 any information as to whether the * Chinese delegates were "intimated," by the Japanese and requests a copy i of a letter said to have been writ-'( ten on behalf of Gen.
