dience of . more than 1000 of San
Francisco's most prominent women.
delivered at a luncheon of San t ran
Cisco center, a woman's club, before
which the president appeared in be
half of the league two weeks ago. It
was an enthusiastic audience, judged
from applause, which frequently com
pelled Senator Johnson to pause in
his address.
Senator Johnson concluded his visit
here tonight. Tomorrow he will ap
pear before a luncheon audience and a
night mass meeting at Los Angeles
to continue his fight against the
treaty and league. These, It was said,

T have looked forward with the
fondest hope to the accomplishment
in the great world arena of the
Idealism announced by our president
In the principles of his peace, and
which with burning words he had
told us must be written into the
treaty." Senator Johnson said. "With
sinking heart. I observed his initial
surrender and as the days passed and
we observed, one by .one. every ideal
lstlc principle abandoned, every al
truistic purpose surrendered. our
fondest desires for a new world order
destroyed, we held a sad intellectual
Inquest over a dead hope.
The president, he said, had declared
the Shantung decision "shameful"; In
Washington "abominable and detest
able," and in San Francisco had Justi
fied the decision.
Tros la Rams La Opposed.
The California senator also con
tinued before the women his fight
against article 10. He attacked the
atand taken by President Wilson on
amendment to the article in speeches
at Salt Lake City and Pueblo.
Use of American troops in Russia
and at Trau. Dalmatia. also were at
tacked by the speaker as being or
dered used by foreign leaders. He
said that use of American troops
wherever the council of the league
designated could become a common
occurrence without action by the
American congress or people. . (
"Today the league of nations ex
ists," he declared. "It Is sitting in
Paris now. Just exactly as the same
men, or representatives of the same
men. will sit in secret at Geneva here
after. . , . And the president
when he says to you that khaki-clad
boys will no longer be sent beyond
the sea, speaks apparently with a lack
of knowledge of the facts that now
confront us. Tou don't want boys
sent across the sea. I. in my narrow
view of Americanism, do not want
American boys to police the world.
And the struggle we are maintaining
in this country today Is whether
American boys shall police the world."
