PRESIDENT HAS ALL GUESSING AS TO TREATY Continued from Page One.) cans, for they must meet in Chicago nrst ana declare u. erase ives. YVIUoD Bides IIU Time. They could not afford to postpone action on the peace treaty planks un til after the Democrats met without being open to charges of timidity. And If Johnson, is the nominee, the Republicans will undoubtedly have declared against the treaty of peacei the whole treaty and covenant, so the president bides bis time, keeping the treaty of peace at the white house and proposes to do notning about sending it back until the senate mani fests its desire to have the treaty back. If two-thirds of the senate should get up a round-robin saying what reservations tney wouia nae to sea put on the treaty, and submitted thl$ request to the president, he could not afford to ignore it. Such a move might be made after the conventions and serve to befog the political align ments again especially if the argu ments appear to be making headway. The treaty issue u xar zrom Doing defined. The politicians : re too re sourceful to let Mr. Wilson have it all his way. Comment on the presi dent's veto message was a mixture of cynicsm and supposed approval. Most senators realize that tne Jtnox reso lution was a political movement and was destined to failure. It proposed no international agreement and only the repeal of domestic laws. Flaws la Xtto Message. On the other hand the Republicans and Democrats alike thought the president's political astuteness was certainly a bit faulty when he put that sentence about the freedom of the seas and reduction of armament in his veto message He declared that the Knox resolution did nothing about these points and members of congress recalled that Mr Wilson did nothing about them ai Paris, either. At least he sidestepped the freedom of the seas and Joined in a proposal to establish, simply a committee of investigation on the armament ques tion. Somebody might have censored Mr. Wilson's veto message for him and kept those two vulnerable passages out of It, but so far as can be learned the president did not show his veto message to any of his advisors. He is still playing a lone hand. Copyright, 1&20, by Dawd Laurence. SEEKS APPROPRIATION FOR WORK I.N HOME ECONOMICS.
