Oelwein Daily Register (Newspaper) - August 28, 1920, Oelwein, Iowa Wire Report of TODAYSImportant lyintoof the World IDBLWEIN FAYBTTB COUNTY IOWA SATURDAY AUGUST 281920 60 CENTS WHY HARDING OPPOSES LEAGUE NATION HARDING TALKS TO THE INDIANA DELEGATION ON LEAGUE NATIONS Saturday Afternoon He Affirmed That Had the Senate Ratified We Would Now Be at From Address By UnitedPress Marion Ohio Aug and gentlemen of this Indiana delegation I greet you in a spirit of rejoicing not a rejoiging in the narrow per sonal or partisan sense not in the gratifying prospects of party tri umph not inthe contemplation of abundance in the harvest fields and corn fields and maturing or chards not in the researching ap proach of stability after a period of wiggling and wobbling which magni fled our all of these are ample for OUT wide rejoic I rejoice that America is still free and independent and in a position of selfreliance and holds to the right of selfdetermination which are priceless possessions in the pres ent turbulence of the world Let us suppose the senate had ratified the peace treaty containing the league covenant as submitted to it by the president in July of last year what would be the situation confronting common country today To my mind there is tut one answer Before this day we would have been called upon to ful fill the obligations which we had assumed under Article 10 of the league covenant to preserve the territorial integrity of Poland as against external aggression Sympathy for Poland I shall not now attempt to meas ure the boundless sympathy for the last aspirations and restored independence of Poland Our present concern is the international situa tion which Poland has brought to our attention The council of the league of na tions wbuld have reasoned and red soned correctly that the United States could furnish the and if necessary the men to with stand the iibrdes advancing from Russia far more easily than could the exhausted nations of Europe Moreover inasmuch as this would be the first test of the scheme of world government which was formulated and demanded by the president speaking for the United States the act of a special responsibility rest ing upon our shoulders manifestly would have been undeniable Un doubtedly the league council in ad vising upon the means by which the obligations to Poland should be fulfilled as provided in the covenant would have s0 held and prob ably the conscience of America cer tainly the opinion of the world would have sustained that Judgment Had Treaty Been Ratified The conclusion that our country might now be confronted by such a situation if the senate had ratified the league covenant requires no stretch of the imagination None can deny that it is possible To many candid minds as to my own such a distressing situation will seem high ly probable Let us assume that the ratification had taken place Let us assume further that the perform ance of the allotstl trk required the waging of war upon the Russian peo ple as of course it would what would ersult what would of necessity have to result Nothing necessarily we are glibly informed since only the congress do that Could congress do that without staining in delibly the honor ot the nation Answer Is So 1 answer No and I say it not on my own authority alone Back of my judgment stands the president of the United States Upon that point there Is first hand information In the course of the discussion which took plate at the meeting of the president and the senate committee on foreign relations I raised the question by stating a hypothetical Continued on page three US NAVAL SHIP SENT TO DANZIG By United Press Washington Aug 28Secretary Navy Daniels directed vice admiral Huse to proceed immediately on the armored

Harding said is iftv favor of going into the league on a basis announced by President Wilson I am not he added sharply That is the whole difference between ut But it is a most vital one because it
