In reply to the president's declara
tion that the league would end use of
American soldiers abroad, Mr. Poin
dexter called attention to the sending
of American troops to Siberia and the
reported plans to send others to Silesia
and Armenia.
Dascrr to Moaroe Doctrine Seen.
"How can the president .tell the peo
ple." demanded Senator Poindexter,
"that the league founded on the, prin
ciple that Europe shall participate In
the control of American affairs and
that America shall participate in th
control of European affairs, does not
abrogate the Monroe doctrine?"
Quoting the president as saying Ger
many would not have invaded Belgium
If she had known the United States
would have Intervened, Senator Poin
dexter said:
"What prevented the United States
from intervening? Is it not true that
President "Wilson himself prevented us
from Intervening in order that he might
make a campaign for the presidency on
the slogan, he kept us out of war?"
"Germany and the United States were
parties to The Hague convention, which
guaranteed the inviolability of neutral
states." Senator Poindexter said. "Had
he advocated a show of force and some
slef-respect he might have saved Bel
glum. Was the president prevented
from acting because we did not have
a league of nations?"
Shsstnsa Provision Assailed.
Senator Poindexter attacked the
Shantung provision and took issue with
the president's statement that the cost
of living was being affected by delay
In ratifying the treaty.
"If that Is so." he exclaimed, "the
whole treaty should be rejected at
once and the economic independence of
the nation reasserted. Will the presi
dent explain how the league of nations
will reduce the cost of living?
"While plana are being made to and
an American army to Turkey and an
other to Siberia and still another to
Germany, how can the president tell
the American people that If the league
of nations is adopted, no kbaki-clad
troops will ever again cross the At
lantic? How will we be able to per
form our obligations In Mexico? Will
It be necessary to raise still another
army for that purpose?"
Senator Lodge said the senate would
consider the treaty article by article
and that the first amendment to be
taken up probably would be that pro
viding for equality of voting between
the United States and Great Britain.
Majority Report Brief.
The majority report of the commit
tee on the treaty Is said to be unusually
brief. The minority report is nearing
"With interest centered in the reser
vation controversy considerable sig
nificance was attached by senators to
Senator Simmons' formal statement, al
though he disclaimed privately that he
poke for the president. He explained
that he gave only his personal view
of the senate situation, and this ex
planation was supported by Senator
Hitchcock, who said that President
"Wilson's position on reservations, even
of a "mild" variety, had not yet been
made known. Republican leaders, how
ever, hailed Senator Simmons' state
ment as a frank concession that the
treaty cannot be ratified without reservations-Senator
Simmons said:
"After a thorough study of the situa
tion in the senate. I am convinced that
some concessions in the way of reser

its ratification, and so believing. I hav;
recently discussed with a number ot
my colleagues the advisability of reach
ing some compromise between those
who are In favor of the treaty without
reservations and those who are In favor
of it with conservative reservations ot
an interpretative character.
"I am utterly opposed, however, to
the reservations proposed by the for
eign relations committee. Some of
these reservations would radically
change the scope and character of the
instrument, emasculating some of the
main provisions of the league, and
would -call for reconsideration by the
peace conference."

One of the most extraordinary demands ever made by a union is the
recent ultimatum of the local Musicians' Union whereby the STAR
Theater MUST employ SIX more musicians in addition to those we had.
Our organists were competent musicians; they satisfied YOU. We
have no symphony orchestra and we haven't the high admission price
that goes with GOOD orchestras.
In these times of high prices, we do not feel that any increase in oiw
. admission is giving YOU a square deal. Therefore, we have RKKUSKD
to meet the astounding and nervy proposition of the musicians, who
suggest that we charge more in order to afford them extra employment.
In spite of reports to the contrary, the STAR Theater is absolutely
unable to employ an orchestra at the present prices, so we need YOUR
help to prevent increased prices. We are depending on YOU, the Public.
