rests heavily on him No longer does he wear the senatorial manner the seeming ease and don of the cloakrooms he looks and acts the part of a chief tive time for smiles and banter are lost in the seriousness of a huge j task The president has found tt sary to beg the senate to remember that the chief executive can't do tive work if the members of the body insist on invading what he considers his legitimate handling of foreign policy questions of disarmament the recall of troops from the Rhine and kindred matters Mr isn't seeking a quarrel with the senate He is doing thing in his power to avoid one But all the senators aren't cooperating with him in a way that spells work Time was when members of congress would keep the White House informed if they intended Introducing bills or making speeches that touched on the sphere of the executive As a consequence little evidences of a lack of are exaggerated into re- ports of friction Was Personal Opinion The most important case in point has been cleared np at the White House And everybody who heard Senator Lodge make his speech cating passage of the Knox resolution was surprised to hear him express the opinion that the Versailles treaty couldn't be modified by reservations in such a way as to make it factory to the United States Not only was this a surprise because Mr Lodge himself has been the author of sete reservations but the im- pression obtained waa that Senator Lodge after conference with dent Harding or Secretary Hughes had come to the conclusion that the job of amending the treaty had been given up as hopeless by the Harding administration Inquiry was made to determine whether the president had arrived at such a conclusion It will be recalled that in hte to congress tho president said it was wiser to accept the treaty with modifications assuming of coarse that this can be satisfactorily accomplished by such explicit reservations and modifications as will secure our absolute freedom from inadvisable commitments and safeguard all our essential Interests From Senator Lodge's speech it was inferred that a conclusion had been reached and that a new treaty with Germany would have to be negotiated But a direct answer to the inquiry brings officially from the Harding ad- ministration the response that it knows of no auch conclusion This means that Charles Evans Hughes legal surgeon has not yet reported as hopeless the task of caring out of the body of the Versailles treaty such parts as are objectionable to the ed States Quite a frarry was caused among observing diplomats when the speech of Senator Lodge was read by them in the Congressional Record They wondered if the Harding tion had reversed itself Now it pears that Senator Lodge was merely expressing a personal opinion that the job of legal surgery couldn't be done He said he tried it and that it required seventy-two amendments Inasmuch as the treaty contains over four hundred sections foreign ments It is asserted here would not consider seventy-two amendments out of proportion Want IT S Signature What the European allies want is America's signature to the Versailles treaty no matter how many tions are made They are sive of course that settled questions may possibly be reopened by such a course but they prefer It to the of a separate treaty between the States and Germany The latter move they believe would for- ever be looked upon by Germany as a wedge between the United States and her associates in the war would be a source of continuous mont in the next especially since the allies believe their troubles with
