In order to avoid the crowds, the
president has made several minor
shifts in his schedule. At San Diego,
Calif., last Friday he went aboard his
train immediately after the informal
dinner given in his honor instead of
remaining for the night, and when he
reached Los Angeles the next day. he
tried in vain to slip quietly to his
hotel for a Sunday's rest.
Later in the day at Los Angeles, he
arranged to take exercise in a brief
automobile ride by sending oat per

Instruments that would be used

The desire to be rid of all war in
the future is the angle of the argu
ment that comes close to home and
usually makes of the league of na

And president Wilson is now ham
mering away at his opponents, charg
ing some of them with being anxious
to destroy the treaty and league by
the indirect means of attaching jokers
and "reservations" that are really
amendments.
Respect Mild Reservations.
The president talks respectfully and
courteously of the socalled "mild res
ervations and it was only when a
new draft of article 10 of the cove
nant was reported as agreed upon by
senator Lodge and the mild reserva
tionists that the president thought he
detected signs of defeating the treaty
by indirection. He decided It was
time for him to make the issue clear.
After declaring that "hyphens are the
knives that are stuck into this doc

give the real reason for delay and de
fined his own future course in unmis
takable language .
