Washington. April ltl. Final re
jection of the Versailles league of na
tions by the American government
was proclaimed to the world today by
President Harding in a solemn pro
nouncement of the foreign policies of
his administration. Speaking before
the new congress the president de
clared acceptance of the league would
be nothing short of a betrayal of the
mandate of the November elections.
Instead, he asked a congressional
declaration of peace and for ratifica
tion of those portions of the Versailles
treaty which protect American rights
and interests in war settlement.
"In the existing league of nations,
world-governing with its super-powers,
this republic will have no part,"
he t-aid. "It is only lair to say to
the world in general and to our asso
ciates in war in particular, that the
league covenant can have no sanc
tion by us."
A tremendous demon--trat ion fol
lowed this declaration, republican
senators and representatives leading,
while most of their democratic col
leagues sat silent. After weighing
the words of the president, the -en-j
ate irreconeilables tonight were
claiming complete victory, predicting!
that even the portions cf the treaty
endorsed by Mr. Harding never would
receive senate approval. j

Declaration No Surprise.
Mr. Harding's definite stand
against the covenant was not a sur
prise to republican leaders of the sen
ate, although the exact wording was
unsettled until shortly before the ex
ecutive left for the capitol. The first
draft was completed soon after mid
night, and when proof sheets came
this morning the president cancelled
the cabinet meeting and summoned
republican members e)f the foreign re

senators present expressed afterward
their satisfaction with the presi-
dent's views, though there was a di
vergenee of view regarding the likeli-
hood of an early ratification of the
treaty with the league and other por
It was poinetd out that the treaty
was net now before the senate, and
that Mr. Harding had shown no indi
cation that he meant to resubmit it
in the near future. In his address
he did not specifically declare his in
tention to do so, merely saying that
in reference to separate treaties with
Germany and Austria the wiser
course would seem to be in the ac
ceptance of the confirmation of our
rights and interests as already pro
vided, and to engage under the ex
isting treaty, assuming, of course, this
can be satisfactorily accomplished
by explicit reservations."
Mind is Still Open.
P,y some senators the president's
words were taken to mean that his
mind still was open on reserved rati
fication, and that he merely suggested
that course as preferable to a separate
peace. The point stressed by him in
that connection was that the United
States must find some way to reach a
diplomatic agreement with both Ger
many and the allies which would pro
tect such advantages as this govern
ment gained under the unratified
t rea t y.
In his' endorsement of the peace
declaration, fhe president expressed
disapproval of the proposal of some
senators to attach to the declaratory
resolution a general expression of the
American government's policy to
ward future European wars.
