White House officials today, 4

ministration senators to ar- 4
rango a conference with the 4
President on the peace treaty,
aald the President told Senator f

attitude, was, indicating that
he would decline further dls-
ctwsloa . or compromise and 4
woatat not see the senators, as
ro.Bted by Senator Hitchcock'
4 Hope of. ratification therefore 4
appears greatly diminished. If
taa President declines a confer- 4
' eaee, Republicans predict fur- 4
ther defections from the admin-
istration ranks, with possibly a
a break of sufficient size to secure 4
4 the acceptance of the Republi-
can reservations. 4
