CUM rrcu (Ul'i M TO FRIENDS OR FOES WE SKE'fCH WORLD EXACTLY AS IT Ask Roosevelt lo Call World Peace Parley Nebraska And Illinois Solans Issue Proposal WASHINGTON. .Oct. Two democratic of Nebraska and LewLi o: Illinois- proposed simultaneously tonight that President Roosevelt summon International conferences to effect lasting European peace. Burke, critic of some adminis- tration measures, just relumed from European lour, said the president was the logical man to call a badly needed world economic conference. Lewis, on administration support- er, declared the time had come when Mr, Roosevelt should summon all parties to the Treaty of Ver- sailles to meet In this country and survey what that treaty had pro- ducer! "In discontent, revolt and war." "Then." added Lewis In a formal statement to the press, "a Just dis- position of the colonies can be made in a calm atmosphere In the United States, under one we do not look for resentments and seek no rewards. We only seek a world peace." FDE TO HYDE PARK Both were advanced a short time before President Roose- velt's scheduled departure for Hyde Park, N. Y., a departure which In- dicated he was confident that the recent threat of war in Europe was definitely past. In an interview, Senator Burke said he thought the time ripe for an economic readjustment which would remsve trade barriers and. with them, many of the causes of war. "I think Europe's troubles are baslcly he said. "The president is the logical one to lake the leadership in calling an economic conference. The presi- dent is in an ideal position to take the lead because he can do it with- out involving us in Europe's squab- bles."
