Convoked by the United States, Russia. Britain, and France, the Paris peace conference offers 17 invited nations the chance to make recommendations but recommendations pacts with Italy, Romania, Finland, Hungary and Bulgaria.

They explained that this hinges on whether tin? four powers who drafted the treaties encourage, either openly or secretly, sug- gestions by the smaller nations, whether they agree later to in- corporate such recommendations into the treaties, and whether they might increase the confer- ence's scope by asking other na- tions to come.. The latter question, French sources said, may conic up on the first day when the conference is asked to rule on whether to sum- mon delegates from the five for- mer enemy countries and from other nations such as Egypt, Lux- Turkey.
