Washington, Oct. 13. There has been a rumor for several days that the treaty friends were getting ready to surrender to the moderate reser vationists, accepting not only the four mild reservations formulated by the McNary 'group, but also ac cepting some more extreme modifi cations. It such a coup really was consid ered it was probably at a time when tt was thought that President Wil son's health .was such that he would never be able to Interfere. The re porta relative to his improvement, whether correct or not, will probably cause Treaty Leader Hitchcock to stand pat for a while longer. just wnat is tne presidents true condition no one knows except rhe White House physicians. Favorable reports have been accepted locally with some skepticism because the nature of the distinguished patient's Illness is understood to be such as to be subject to sudden relapses. Un doubtedly there has been a fear among those surrounding the presi dent that the vice-president might be called in to discharge his duties and the organ lo law Is Just as vague on when a vice-president shall cease tb discharge such duties as It Is on when , he should be summoned to take the reins.
