have been work ing the past week in formulating a Resolution which will be presented for the above this Resolution will declare that the state of War which has heretofore existed Between the United

fact that Congress has the right under the Constitution to provide for the Genera welfare of the United i am convinced that this Resolution will stand the test of the thin Resolution will have a further effect in terminating All War Legisla Tion which has been a serious Handi Cap to Many industries and in my brings about More of the unrest than the fact that a treaty has not been the people

by the opponents of this measure that it is an Effort in an indirect Way to provide a method of terminating contrary to the in my this position cannot be maintained and when the peace making machinery in a democratic form of government fails to some solution must be found this condition has been brought about by the disagree ment Between the president and the Senate and was rendered hopeless when
