Heuse today, went ever wiu mm.
draft of President Harding's letter,
which will be used te defeat the
Berah resolution. The letter was
later sent te Senater Ledge.
The purpose of the President in
writing the letter was te assure the
Senate that cverythin gpessible is
being done by himself and Secretary
Hughes te aid In the economic res
toratien of Europe. The President
deprecates action by the Senate en
ithCBernh resolution at. this. time.
The difficulty is the old one which
has existed in our foreign relations
ever since the Senate rejected the
Versailles Treaty. As seen aa the
Senate shows its hands in foreign
affairs ether Governments de net
Uew whether they can deal confi
dently with the President or net.
False expectations, or at least grave
ieubtf, are raised abroad as te what
i the real policy of the United
States and who expi esses it.
It is expected here that the liar-
din? letter will defeat the Berah
resolution en which the vote would
chcrwise be close.
Cut if the Administration is te
IcHt thU resolution it must seen
f'tiS forward s-eme constructive
tfiggcstwn. Otherwise, it is felt
w that public opinion, especially
talne opinion, throughout the
"nntiy will be disappointed. j

TEXT OF HARDING'S
LETTER TO LODGE
Washington, Dec. 28. President
Harding's letter te Senater Ledge,
asking the Senate te defeat the
Berah amendment, was as follews:
"My Dear Senater Ledge;
"Replying te your inquiry relative
te the proposed amendment te the
pending naval bill, authorizing and
requesting the President te call an
economic conference te deal with
conditions in the war-tern nations of
Europe, I write te say that I knew
of no opposition against such an ex
pression en the part of the Congress,
but I de frankly question the de
sirability of such an expression. I
think it is undesirable because of
false impressions which may be con con
eoyed thereby te Europe, and even
mere undesirable because of the
wrong impression it conveys te our
"On the face of things, it is equiv
alent te saying that the legislative
branch of the Government, which is
charged with the conduct of foreign
relations, i3 net fully alive te a
world situation which is of deep con
cern te the United States.
"As a matter of fact, the Eu
ropean situation has been given most
thorough and thoughtful considera
tion for many months. Without
questioning the geed faith of the
proposal, I am very sure it would
have been mere seemly, and the
action of the Congress could be
taken much mere intelligently, if
proper inquiry had been made of the
State Department relative te the sit
uation in which we arc trying te be
Information Open te Congress
"Of necessity the communications
of the State Department relative te
delicate matters among nations can
not be bulletined from day te day,
but the situation is never withheld
from members of Congress who
cheese te inquire for confidential in
formation in a spirit of co-operation.
"Such inquiry would hare revealed
the futility of any conference call
until it is understood that such a
conference would be welcomed by
the nations concerned, within the
limits of discussion which the ex
pressed will of Congress compels
this Government te impose.
"In ratifying the treaty of peace
with Germany the Senate made a
reservation that the United States
should net be represented en the

consent of Congress, and no such
consent has been given. Moreover,
in creating the World War Debt
Funding Commission, that body was
restricted te explicit terms for rates
of interest and ultimate time of pay
ment. If Congress really means te
facilitate the task of the Govern
ment in dealing with the European
situation, the first practical step
would be te free the hands of the
commission se that helpful negoti
ations may be undertaken.
"It is- quite generally accepted
that the adjustment of the question
of reparations must underlie any
economic rehabilitation of Europe,
and reparations cannot be settled
without the consent of Governments
concerned. The United States can
not assume te say te one nation what
it shall pay in reparations, nor te
another nation what it shall accept.
Debts Distinct Frem Reparations
"In discussions with foreign Gov
ernments the previous Administra
tion and the present Administration
have insisted that the question of
European debts te the United States
is distinct and apart from the ques
tion of reparations, but European
nations held a contrary view and it
is wholly inconsistent te invite a
conference for the consideration of
questions in dealing with which the
Government is denied all authority
by net of Congress.
"Se far as the limitation of land
armaments is concerned, there seems
te be at this time no mere prom prem
ising prospect of accomplishment
than when the conference was held
in Washington a year age. Here,
again, I venture te warn the Senate
against the suggestion te our own
ncenle or a costure of nrnmiae te
the weild which cannot be fulfilled j"1 the Senate's second day of debate
until the nations directly concerned the Berah proposal, which is cm
express their readiness te co-eneratc . bodied in an amendment te the
te such an end.
"With respect te a limitation of
auxiliary types of naval craft,
which arc net limited by the present
naval treaty, it is te be said that
such an agreement is much te be
desired, whenever practicable, but
we may reasonably postpone our
further endeavors along that line
until the agreements made at the
Washington conference secure the '
final sanction of all Governments

"WARREN G. HARDING."

aeor Ledge, Republican leader,
that formal congressional action en
the subject new would embarrass
him in negotiations he already is
conducting looking te such a con

I Senater Ledge for presentation dur-

The President acted directly te
i block Senate action after he had con
sulted with Secretary Hughes and
after Senater Ledge had visited the
White Heuse and had reported en

Without disclosing details of what
he is doing, the President suggested
thnt Centrress might, bn helpful bv
frying the hands of the Allied Debt
Commission. He nI"e declared thnt the
repnrntiens was the foundation of
European difficulties nnd thnt this na
tion "cannot assume te say te one
nation what It shall pay In reparations
nor te another what it shall accept."
As te further armament limitation
negotiations, also provided for in the
Berah plan. President Harding warned
ngnlnst whit might be "a gesture of
