This question promises to command virtually the undivided at tention of the delegates until their action regarding Russia shows results.

General John J. Pershing, the Amer ican commander-in-chlef, has been called to Paris. It is expected he will be the American military member ot the joint commission. Consider Britleh Plan First.

Wilson Wants Best Plan. Mr. Wilson has told his colleagues that he has no personal pride of au thorship In the plan for the league and is quite ready to place himself In a position of supporting soeqe other na tion’s plan rather than bis own if he feels that procedure will best servs the common purpose.
