From League May Be Made
1920 Campaign Issue
By L.C. Martin
(United Press Staff Correspondent)
Washington, July 15. Foreseeing complete victory
for President Wilson in the senate, some league of na
tions opponents today were discussing a plan to make
withdrawal from the league by the United States an issue
in the 1920 campaign. '
The proposal was nebulous. No one.ment with President Wilson, but p!a
wae openly sponsoring it, Tiose who'ned if circumstances would permit t
favored it will be ready to annouuee
it, however, the moment they think it
will receive party support.
Senators who have talked this idea
over point out that two years is re
quired for actual withdrawal and the
issue in the election would be the giv
ing of mtice !o the league ut this
country's intention to withduw which
would g-t up out in I'.'.:.
By that time these, senators
say, tho United States will have done
its share towards stabilising Knrope
