ACCEPT RESERVATION ARTICLE
TEN SEN. HITCHCOCK DECLARES
Senate Democratic Leader, However, Asserts Executive Will
Not Tolerate Lodge Change on League of Nations Cove
nant Clause—Nebraska Senator to Hold Conferences With
Solons During Holiday Vacation.
Washington, Dec. 38. — President
Wilson Is willing to accept a reserva
tion on article 10 of the league of na
tions covenant which will give to con
gress the right to decide when the
United States Is under a moral obliga
tion to use the army and navy In de
fending the territorial integrity of an
other nation, In the opinion today of
Senator Hitchcock, administration
Hitchcock, in making this statement,
declared, however, that the president
will not accept the Lodge reservation
on this clause and will not accept any
compromise which sacrifices the spirit
of article 10.
Some Democratic senators have re
cently come to the view that this ar
ticle which Wilson called "the heart of
the covenant" Is not vital so long as
article two and other provisions to pre
vent war remain.
Hitchcock said that recent talks with

The good fellows of Boise have (lone
well what they set out to do—they
have enabled the Salvation Army to
"put It over big." Boxes of Christmas
dinners will be distributed to about
an even hundred homos where other
wise Christmas cheer would be but an
empty phrase. Each box will contain
a chicken—or two chickens for the
larger families—and all the "trim
mings" for a genuine holiday feast.
Slender larders will be replenished for
Appreciation and gratitude for the
assistance of the good fellows was ex
pressed this morning by Commandant
Frank Genge when a Christmas purse
for which the Capital News has been
custodian was handed to him.

him that the differences over article 10
"are pretty serious."
Hitchcock will confer with small
groups of senators from now until con

some as evidence that ha Is Wilson's

"The president has made his position
so clear on this point that he needs
no emissary," Hitchcock said. "He has
never said he would not accept a com
promise, but that he would not offer
