PARIS, Aug. 20 up> Italian proposals for modifying the Italian peace treaty draft failed of endorsement in a peace conference committee today. After seven and one half houri discussion of an Italian not.- to the conference’s political and territorial committee for Italy seeking modifications in the peace treaty draft, the committee adopted a motion reading: “The chairman noted that the suggestions contained in the Italian memorandum were not taken up in the form in which thev were presented as amendments by any delegation and were, therefore, not endorsed as such.” poland was at war with Italy ” said f Polish delegate. "Polish soldiers fought in North Africa and Italy, Polish .soldiers were killed by Italian bullets. Was this a state of war or a state of peace?” Italy’! Claim Challenged Belgium Yugoslavia and the Netherlands likewise challenged the Italian claim, which wras precented in a proposed amendment to the preamble of the Italian treaty taken up by the Italian political and territorial committee. Italy suggested that a statement in the preamble that Italy was at war "with all” allied pow erg be altered to read “some” of the conference nations. The memorandum suggested a1 so that a sentence saying "Italy, under the fascist regime, because a party to the tripartite pact” b« amended to read: “Italy was led by the fascist regime to become a    to tripartite pact.” The memorandum criticized the omission of any reference to what it called "the active role played by the Italian people” in overthrowing Mussolini’s regime It urged the deletion of the pi,as* “surrendered uncondition Ally rn the preamble’s reference to the capitulation of July 25, J    ca,l«?d    for    a reference to Italy s material share in the war against Germany which lasted for 18 months.” Denies Some Were Enemies No hostilities actually occurred between Italy and Poland. Bel glum, the Netherlands and Czechoslovakia, the Italian note said, “and the nationals of those states were never considered in Italy to be enemy aliens.” A Netherlands delegate com oriented that the Netherlands had declared war on Italy through a note delivered by the Swedish minister in Rome, but that Italy had not accepted the note, holding that the Netherlands "no longer existed.” A Yugoslav delegate said "the spirit of the Italian amendment rn general is to eliminate Italian responsibility in the war from connection with the present re gime.” This, he said, "is alto aether ^acceptable ” He said Italy was "a major asset for Germany in the war” sud that the preamble should he strengthened rather than modified. The committee had debated over whether it should proceed with discussion of the Italian treaty <y adjourn pending sub mission of suggested amendments to the draft.
