lo the New York Times, I expressed
my uwn opinion of Iho situation as
it thru was. I reproduce it here:
There can lie no doubt but that
some senators have been conscien
tious In their desire to clarify the
provisions of tho treaty. Two things
apparently have disturbed them:
First, they wanted lo make sure
lluil the league was not to lie an
alliance, and that lis basic purpose
was peace and not controversy.
Second, Ihey wanted thn other
powers signing Ihe instrument to
understand our const ilutloual limi
tations beyond which the Irealy
making power cannot go. Dealing
with these two Questions in order.

of Iho league might have lieeil slated
in these words:
