Senator Fittaaa Asserts
Treaty's Fate In Hands
. Of League Foes.
. EXPLANATIONS FORSEEN
Speech First Admission Of
Strength Of Demands For
Washington, July 23 (United Press.)
Admitting t lie possibility that the ten
ate may adopt reservations to the peace
treaty, Senator l'ittman, Nevada, ia
speech to the senate toduy, dcclaivd the
treaty') fate rests ia the hands of those
demanding interpretations an explana
tions. l'ittman' s speech is the first admis-
siouby un administration senator that
the demand for reservations has any
real strength. ,
"If reservations may be made that
we 1iave a right to feel certain will e
accepted by ail the other nations with
out involving reopening of the whole
nutter of pence negotiations, in my
opinion such reservations will be p
proved by two-thirds of tho seua'.e,'
mi id I'ittnmn.
League Is Safe.
"The fate of the league of nations
does not rest with those senators who
would destroy or emasculate tiie cove
mint but with those who fuvor the
loKgue, but who now have in mind rati
fication with interpretative reserva
tions. These senators have nenriy all
indicated they will not do anything
knowingly that would result in dustrmv
tiou of the league of nations. They
me moved by no such desires. They
me urged simply by fear lest Mmo mis
understanding should arise in the future
through indefinite language in the body
of the treaty.
"Tho vital question is whether quali
fied ratification of the treaty will send
it back for re-negotiation, and if so,
what the probable result of fciu.il action
"If it is necessity that the treaty be
approved by the senate, it is equally
necessary that any amendment or res
