UN RE
FIGHT STARTED
AGAINST BORAH
PLAN IN SENATE
i .
Senator Jiodge Declares Any
Further Attempt to Limit
Armaments Useless.
WASHINGTON, Dec., 27. ? Administration
senators under the
lead of Chairman Lodge or the foreign
relations committee began In
the Senate today a determined
fight against the proposal of Senator
Borah, Republican, Idaho, for
a, new International conference in
Washington to discuss economic
conditions and disarmament.
Senator Lodge, who was said by
his colleagues to have ascertained
the viejvs 6f President Harding and
his administration advisers, opened
his attack as soon as the Senate
began work on the Borah proposal,
which is in the form of an
amendment to the annual Naval
Bill requesting the President to
call an economic and armaments
conference.
The foreign relations' chairman
recounted the difficulties of further
armament limitation encountered
at the Washington Arms Conference
a year ago and declared that
in view of the attitude taken by
other powers it would be "useless"
to attempt to limit land armaments
unless it were established before
band, that Franco had changed her
position.
The fight on the Senate Af!oor
began after a score of administration
senators had conferred in
Senateor Lodge's offjce and map.
ped out a program providing for a
resort to parliamentary tactics if
necessary to defeat the move by
Senator Borah. A part of the
group of iSenate irreconcilable*
who have voted with Mr. Borah on
many, other questions of foreign
policy also vWas arrayed again3t
his amendment, while the attituuq
of the " Domocratfc".,&ide. of .the
. oneT with many rilembe^i urideeifled
whether to support or oppose
the conference plan.
Senator Lodge declared the
amendment's proposal for an
economic discussion was* an en.
tirely new subject, foreign to the
provision put into the bill by the
Hou?e for a further naval limitation
conference, and was of
"grave importance." He recited
that the conduct of foreign affairs
was in the hands of the President,
and that he would not be bound to
accept any advico offered by tke
Senate although "almost any
President would give weight" to
senatorial advice.
Reviewing the work of the
WaBhincton Arms flnnfflriflnm *hn
Republican leader recalled that
Premier Brian had told the conference
that France could not consent
to any limitation of land
armament.
"Of course that put an end to
any further action by the conference
on the question of land armament,"
said Senator Lodgo, "because
no action could be taken except
by unanimous agreement."
Turning to the provision in the
Naval Bill as passed by the
House and in the Borah amendment
for a move > to limit the
building of naval vessels of 10,000
tons and less, Senator Lodge
pointed out that the Washington
conference 'was unable to do that
because of the objections of
France and other powers."
