Trend of Argument Shown.
Rrleflv. the main trend of Mr. Wil
son's argument as now revealed is
mis:
One If the treaty Is not ratified by
the United States. Europe will go
ahead without us and the United
States will be left out In the cold,
discredited and dlstrustc l
Two The reparation commission Is
feeally a group of receivers sitting

tThat commission will determine how
uermany snail pay oer reparation,
where she will buy materials and how
she will get credits. Mr. Wilson says
that If only from a practical business
point of view America cannot afford
to stay out. America s rrane ana in
dustrial life are interwoven in the
economics of Europe.

Invasion of Belgium as a violation of
