Idaho Solon Declares Revised Pact is Unaccept
able-League is Not One of Peoples* but
Diplomats* He Asserts*
Washington, April 14.—Senator
Borah of Idaho, one or the leaders of
th* opposition to the league of na
tions, gave out a statement tonight
declaring the covenant, as revised,
was wholly unacceptable. Analyz
ing the amended constitution, he sets
forth seven instances in which it
failed to meet the fundamental ob
jections raised against the original
document, ^nd concluded:
"The real issue is now formed and
the real contest now begins."
Senator Borah has just returned
from a specchnmklng tour against
the league ot nations in the middle
west. He expressed the opinion that
the.attitude of the people in that sec
tion was'swinging to opposition to
any league of nations.
"1 do not say that the majority of
re are against all
b now," said Senator
"I do not undertake to say

made. They were undoubtedly op
posed to the league as it was first
presented. But I do say that many
people ln that section are coming
around to the belief that the United
States had better stay out of all Eu
ropean broils and entangling allianc
es and tbat the-trend of sentiment Is

Senator Borah enumerated the in
stances in which the amended cove
nant fail» to meet vital objections as
Enumerates Objections.
"First,' that the proposed league
- would commit us to alliance with
.European and Asiatic powers and
oblige ua to take part in the ordinary
conflicts and turmoils of Europe.
Second, that we will assume the
tremendous obligations of guarantee
ing tho territorial integrity and polit
ical independence of all nations mem
bers of the league, and the argument
is that all nations are ultimately to
get Bomb for some time
Private Clarence Grant of Battery
received In action on Nov. 7, when
the battery was helping to reduce tbe
German strongholds around Mont
faucon, one of the stragetic points
where the Boche held on desperately
during the last big offensive on the
Meuse. A fragment from a high ex
plosive shell struck one of Private
Grant's legs, causing a vicious wound.
He said the general belief over there
waa that Battery B was "stuck" for
a while yet and would not likely be
home until well into the summer.
"Tell the people of Idaho that Bat
téry B waa there-at all times and in
every sense aff the word," said Pri
vate Grant ot a Leader-Herald repre
sentative. "We went into the field
early In July, during the desperate
fighting around Chateau-Thlerry,
and were in tbe thick of it most of
the time from thea on until the arm
istice was signed. We took part in
practically every offensive of any im
portance that was staged on the wes
tern front after the start at Chauteau
Thierry. We helped pave the way
for the doughboys in all of the
smashes and the organization has
won a splendid name for Itself ln the
A. E. F.
"Yea, we were mighty lucky, con
sidering all the engagements in
which we had a part. Only one oth
er man besides mysplf wee wounded.
That 'was Carl Mclllwain, one of the
Montpelier boys who went to the
Border with us. When I left the or
ganization on November 7 all the
boys were ln fine spirits and were
feeling line. All of the old gang,
except a few who were away at school
were there and some sew ones who
were sent to us. Bob Latng was first
sergeant of the company, having
been promoted after Don Lamson
went to the Officers' Training School.
"It surely seems fine to be back ln
Nampa, and it's fine to see bow Inter
ested everyone is in finding out
about the Battery B boys. It shows
that tha folks at home were backing'
us up and that helpa a whole lot,
when the boys are at the from I'll
bet there wasn't anybody here whd
was a slacker on Liberty Bonds, Red
Cross, or Battery B subscriptions.
"The men received a number of
shipments from Battery B Auxiliary
and I can't imagine anything that
could have been more appreciated.
The boys over there In the Battery
swear by the auxiliary. They will
never forget the members of the aux
iliary and those who helped them to
look out for us.«

that we will guarantee the territorial

"Third, that under the voting ar

Fifth, if the Jurisdiction and pow-I
