By L C Martin . (United Press Staff Correspondent) Washington, Aug. 16. All efforts by democratic sen alors to agree with republicans on a program of reserva tions to the peace treaty were abandoned today as the result of word from President Wilson. The prosi.cnt, in a talk late yester-i mmmmmm day with Senator Hitchcock, urn to ad ministration leader, strongly diseour- aged even tlie discussion of reservations by democrats. He made it plain to Hitchcock that, in his opinion, the day tor discussion reservations is a long way off. What democrat must concentrate j their efforts on, ia the president's opiu- ion, Hitchcock said, is defeat of all pro- poals to amend the treaty. At the president 's suggestion, there fore, Hitchcock begin a drive next week in a speech to the senate ugniust acceptance of unieiulmeuts. While it ha been generally recognized for weeks that there are not enough votes in the senate to make general textiuul i;inend nients, the president is said to feel that the slightest possibility of amendment of any section must be removed before he will even consider reservations. The president' attitude, as stated by Hitchcock today, broke off virtual nego tiations' whieh promised to develop into F GIVEN SANCTION IN EAST National Championship to Fea ture Eight Continuous DaysOfPlay.

ST" Rush lo Argentine Is Not Likely Xew York, Aug. 10 (failed Press) Fundamental national principles of the Argentine government will prevent any overwhelming swarm of Herman emigration to that country, according to Dr. Romulo S. Kaoa, Argentine min ister to the United States. Naou's opin ion was set forth in an interview with the New York correspondent of "La! Prensa" of Buenos Aires, just before the South American diplomat sailed for home. "I p!uc little credence ia the report that the German government will en courage emigration and settlement ia Argentina of some fivo million Ger mans, said .Naon. "The policy of Ger many iu the matter of emigration was always opposed to propaganda aiming at encouraging nationals to leave the country and settle abroad. I don't think such policy will be modified iu mo ments like the present. Today, uiore than ever before, Germany needs co-operation and the assistance of all her children for the reconstruction of her economic and financial capacity. "Hut even admitting that the Ger man government of private German cor porations cherish sui.h a plan. I think its execution is equally impossible, because fundamental reasons of national Argen tine policy are opposed to it. Argentina cannot admit coloniiations favored by foreign governments because this would be highly detrimental to the formation of national sentiment which needs to be fomented, especially' in countries ill process of formation. "Nothing that might even remotely cause the formation of a state within a state, could be viewed indifferently by the people of Argentine."
