PROPOSE
S PROJECT
Developments of League
of Nations Disarmament
Protocol Pave Way for
Calling of Conference 5
KELLOGG WILL BE ASKED
TO SUBMIT STATEMENTS
Proposal May Be Simultane
ously Placed Before Vari
ous Powers
WASHINGTON, March 13.
Recent developments affecting the
league of "nations disarmament and
security protocol are believed by
President Coolidge to have opened
the way for further consideration
here of the announced project for
the calling of a new arms limita
tion conference by the United
States. ' ' i
As soon as the fate of the league
protocol 1s made known " definitely
it is the purpose of the president
to take up the question In a serl-
ous way with Secretary Kellogg.
Information emanating from Gen-;
eva so far has reached the Wash-I
ington government only through!
unofficial channels. .
For that reason officials will
await authentic advices before.
taking any step approaching a for-
mal presentation of the conference!
idea to the 'nations Interested.
None of the powers thus far have
been actually approached on the
subject.
At present Mr. Coolidge favors
submitting his project simultane
ously to the various powers. 5 This
step would Involve, action by the
American ambassadors in London,
Paris, Rome and Tokio under in
gtructions given them by Secretary
Kellogg. The procedure at that
stage would be for the diplomatic
representatives In the four coun
tries to ascertain and report to
Washington the reactions of the
various governments.
It is the hope of President Cool
idge that the react Wire -of. each of
the governments will be favorable
to participation in the armaments
conference.. If it should develop,
however, that the ambassadors en
counter opposition tojtbe confer
ence proposal or are informed that
any one of the goverhtnents de
cline to participate, ittfs the pres
ent intention of President Coolidge
to have the 'Washington govern
ment go forward with the project
with such othets as are agreeable.
Austin Chamberlain, the British
secretary for foreign affairs, al
ready bas been quoted here as
stating Great Britain's willingness
to participate in an armaments
limitation conference called under
the auspices of the United States.
The president is anxious that
the conference- whenever called,
should discuss both land and naval
armaments. He realizes that the
United States' Jland forces have
been 'reduced to a minimum and
that -the Washington government
has little or nothing to offer oth
ers to Induce them to follow its
example. ' . .
On th .subject of naval arma
ments 'as well as land armaments
the American;pplicy will be one of
moral - appeal, not in any way
marked by coercion. The policy
In the main is 'designed to be one
of helpfulness 4 to those powers
which are desirous of ridding
themselves of urdensome arma
ment budgets and to promote har
monious accord between nations
in achieving that goal.

"The climate of Bohemia, which

this state," declared Mr. Zerzan.
"There are 400,000 Ozecho-Slo-vaks
around Chicago who are
ready to return to the soil. They
have found that the industrial
conditions of the great cities do
not agree with them. They are
ready to return to the farm and
attempts are now being made to
get them here. At first they did
not have enough money to buy the
high-priced lands of -the middle
west, but now they are ready to
make purchases. They, have ac
cumulated funds and are looking
around to settle. Willamette val
ley will appeal to the majority of
the settlers because of the type

is ot a great appeal to our people."
Appeal Is Answered
The appeal of the went was an

PlfJES TREATY
Of RATIFIED
Senate Favors Turning Over
Sovereignty of Isle of
Pines to Cuba
WASHINGTON, March 13 The
senate ratified the Isle of Pines
treaty today with minor reserva
tions. Sent the Lausanne treaty to
reestablish relations with Turkey
back to committee and voted 76 to
2 to make the world court ques
tion a special order for next De
cember 17.
The vote of the senate, '6 3 to 14,
to ratify the pact by -which the
United States relinquishes in favor
of Cuba all claims to sovereignty
over the Isle of Pines was describ
ed as highly gratifying to Presi
dent Coolidge, but not so the ac
tion In putting over until the next
session consideration of the Laus
anne treaty.
With early adjournment of the
senate in prospect, President Cool
idge communicated to Chairman
Borah of the foreign relations
committee, his desire for early
ratification of the. Turkish treaty,
but a canvass of the situation in
the senate convinced Mr. JBorah
that the two thirds majority ne
cessary for ratification could not
be had. Consequently he moved
to send the convention back to his
committee.
Even after this action had been
taken. Secretary Kellogg conferred
at lengthwith Senator Borah on
the subject but there was no indi
cation that the senator had chang
ed his -views that to press the
treaty at this time would result
onlr in its rejection since practi
cally all of the democrats are op-.
posed to it. With action by the
senate deferred until, the regular
session In December this country
would be without diplomatic and
commercial relations with Turkey
and advices have reached the
White House that the situation
may prove embara6sing both to
Americans la Turkey and to those
having trade with that country.

Warren
CONFERENCE IS CALLED
TO PRESENT APPROVAL
Full Weight of His Personal
Influence Ts Thrown in
By President
WASHINGTON, March 1 3
President Coolidge passed along
the word today to administration
leaders in the senate to fight hard
for confirmation -Charles B.
Warren to be attorneygeneral.
Undismayed by the action of
the judiciary committee earlier
in the day in ordering an adverse
report on the nomination, 9 to 7,
after having approved it twice be
fore, the executive called in seve
ral senate leaders tonight to im-.
press upon them his earnest de
sire that Mr. Warren's quallilca
tlons be vigorously presented In
the senate when the nomination
Is called up again tomorrow in
open session.
Senators Rejected
The president threw the -full
weight of his personal influence
behind the nomination bis con
ferees -including Senators Borah of
Idaho and McMaster of Soutb Da
kota, two of the republicans "who
refused to follow -the party organi
zation when the appointment was
rejected by "the senate last Tues
day on tL tie -vote.
Republican leaders were hope
ful that there might be a change
in the result, but their latest can
vasses in the senate still indica
ted that they would be worse off
than they were on the first vote.
Attention was called that several
opponents absent then will be
present tomorrow. They' are mak
ing last efforts, however, to pair
up some of their absentees and to
dissipate some of this potential
strength - for the other side.
Advantage Is Held
With the adverse reoort from
the committee, opponents -will hold
a parliamentary advantage on the
floor since they will have charge
of the report. They still -were un
decided 'tonight as to the exact
course they would follow in mak
