TO GO HALF WAY
Would Recognize Territorial
Aspirations of Jugo-Slavs
Paris, Jan. 10. President Wilson,
It it said, has virtually made up his
mind how far he will support
Italy's claims at the peace table
and informed Premier Orlando of
his decision, but it is probable his
ideas will not be made known pub
licly until the peace delegates have
been advised of them.
It is asserted by persons close to
the president that he favors only
partial endorsement of Italy's am
bitions. The expectation has been
expressed that President Wilson is
agreeable to meeting the principal
features of Italy's claim to territory
undeniably Italian and essential to
safeguard her sovereignty and at

ritorial aspirations of the Jugo
Slavs. It is anticipated that the presi
dent's leanings in favor of Italy do
not go so far as to warrant the
suggestion that he is in favor of
giving Italy control of the Adria
tic, but that by a project of inter
nationalization he is willing to sat
isfy the Italians that there will be
no military threat to the east of
them, according to persons sup
posed to be well informed on the
The president is" said to realize
that the Italians are depending al
most solely on the United States
lor support, but that he has felt
from the first that he could not
endorse their claims in full, though
he is said to entertain the warmest
sympathy for Italy.
