WEST GIVES_HIM OVATION All Doubtful Features of Pact Aro Explained Away By President, ^nd Former Doubters Hasten to Give Him Their Support. (By Independent News Bureau, form erly Mt. Clemens New* Bureau.) Aboard President Wilson’s Special Train—A continuous ovation along the Pacific coast and then on his eastward way back toward the capital was given to President Wilson as he came toward the end of his month daylong speaking tour In behalf of the League of Nations. California, particularly the delightful city of Los Angeles, went wild In its enthusiasm for him and his advocacy of the League, and It was in that state, perhaps, that he did his most successful missionary work. Hiram Johnson, California's former governor, now her United States sena tor, and considered by her as the most lilcely Republican candidate for the presidency In 1920, had before the ar rival of President Wilson, convinced a great number of citizens that the League as at present formulated was not a good thing. He had told them that the United States, because of it, would be drawn Into every petty European quarrel; he argued that we would lose our sovereignty by joining with the European nations. He had blamed the president for assenting to the possession by Japan of the Penin sula of Shan Tung In China. ( " N BUREAU CHANGES NAME The Mount Clemens News Bureau, which has been furnishing reports on President Wilson’s tour in behalf of the League of Nations to 5,^500 papers, has adopted a new name and will hereafter be known as The Independent News Bureau. V Bui Mr. Wilson, with cleaf logic and with compelling eloquence, answered to the entire satisfaction of Califor nia’s people every objection which Senator Johnson had made to the League. And thousands of the state’s citizens deserted the Johnson stand ard immediately and rallied to the sup port of the president More than that, they came forward and said, "We were against you. Mr. President, but you have cleared everything up and now we are with you heart and soul.” Still more than that, they let Senator Johnson know that Ahey were no longer with him and tnat they disap proved of the speaking tour which he himself was making in opposition to the League and so powerful was the volume of public opinion which reach ed him, that the senator almost im mediately abandoned his tour. The Shan Tung question, because of the anti-Japanese feeling which undoubted ly exists along the Pacific coast was the most serious which the president had to answer. He explained to the people that he had been powerless to' prevent the rich peninsula from being given to Japan. England and France, through a secret treaty, had promised it to Japan for entering the war and remaining in it That treaty had to be carried out Anyway it was not China that was losing Shan Tung, but Germany, which had seized the terri tory from China in 1898 and held it ever since. Japan had promised, the president explained, to return Shan Tung as soon as the peace treaty was ratified and it was only through the ratification of the treaty with the League of Nations incltfslon, that China could ever expect to get her former property back. And she surely would get it back, he declared, through the ratification Of the League. There fore, through the same instrumentality no other nation oould again prey upon the "Great, patient, diligent, but help less kingdom." As to our being drawn into any European conflict. Tl\e pres ident pointed out that no direct action such as the sending of troops to any part of the world to maintain or re store order could be taken by the Council of the League without a unani mous vote of tha council members, therefore our vote could at once nega tive any such proposition as sending our Boldler9 where we did not want them sent. Besides, Mr. Wilson argued, “If you have to quench a fire In Cali fornia you don’t tend for the fire de partment of Utatu” But, he argued, there probably Mrrer will be another war, if the League la established, for the members promise either to arbi trate their difference and accept the decision of the arbitrator, lay the dif ferences for discussion**’ and publica tion before the Oonncil of the League for a period of six months, and then, if possible, accept the council's advice. That failing, they agree to refrain from war for a further period of three months and nine months of “cooling off,’* the president contended, would prevent any armed conflict. These clear explanations satisfied every reasonable hearer and destroyed the “Bugaboos” which Senator Johnson and others had raised against the League. Through rugged Nevada into Utah, the land of Mormons, the president swept to find ihat those fine people were heartily with him for the League and a per manency of peace. \ OF LOCAL INTEREST Mrs. R.
