Wilson Brings Forth "Steno
graphic Record of Speech to

Deals in Generalities
B Tha AtaocUUd frraa.
Washington, Oct. 11. The White
House made public today what was
described as an "official version" of
President Wilson's address at the
eighth plenary session of the Paris
peace conference. The exact word
ing of this address, directed to the
representatives of Roumania, Seroia
and Czecho-Slovakia, has been the
subject of a controversy between the
president and Senator Spencer, rc-
The senator had declared in a po
litical speech that the president had
promised Roumania and Serbia that

rltory he would send the American
army across the seas to defend their
Mr. Wilson, in a telegram to the
senator, on October 5, said that this
statement was "false." In reply
Senator Spencer called for the ofli
cial record, saying that the state
ment to which he had referred was
in tha "stenographic notes" of the
eighth plenary session, in which the
" president was "reported to have
pid:" '; . .
, Force Only Guaranty.
"'You must not forget that it is
force that is the final guaranty of
the peace of the w;orld. If the world
is again troubled the United States
will send to this side of the ocean
their army and their fleet.'".'
The president's words as given in
the official version follow:
"How can a power like the United
States, for example and I can
speak for no other after signing
this treaty, if it contains elements
which they do not believe will be
permanent, go 3,000' miles, away
across the sea and report to its peo-t
pie that it has made a settlement of
the peace of the werld? It cannot
do so. And yet there underlies all
of these transactions the expecta
tion on the part, for example, of
Roumania, and of Czecho-Slovakia
and of Serbia, that if any covenants
of this settlement are not observed,
the United States will send her
armies and her- navies to see that
they are observed."

Marion, O., Oct. 11. Pronouncing
the old order of world affairs at an
end. Senator Harding reaffirmed in
a statement today his belief that
America mustplay its part in aid
ing ,the formation ot an associa
tion of nations "that will discourage
or tend to prevent war and that
will encourage a better understand
Such an association, lie said, could
be formed without sacrifice of
American sovereignty of impair
ment of the American constitution,
He declared his purpose to bring
into counsel on the subject, the
ablest American citizenship, includ
ing the women of the nation.
Explaining why he restated his
proposal in a formal statement the
senator said that while he was "un
alterably opposed to going into the
league as that particular proposi
tion now sands" he. wanted the
American people to, understand also
' my thought ot co-operation.
, - Text of Statement.,
The text of the senator's state
ment on the league issue follows:
"It seems to me there should not
remain a shadow of a doubt as o
my exact position as regards the
proposed league of nations as
drafted at Paris and submitted to
the senate nd as regards thea great
world sentiment for a better under
standing among nations to dis
courage war and generally to ad
vance civilization. Let me restate
my position as explicitly as my pow
er ofwords permits:.
"First, I am unalterably opposed
to going into the league of nations

throughout the world, and the
United States always quick with

led by common sense, must play its
part in this new order. .

"Third. I believe that such an as
sociation can be formulated without
wrecking the constitution that re
mains the corner stone of our lib

seizing or filching the sovereignty
that is our pride and our inspiration
to fine living and good works.
Fourth, I can earnestly believe
that the conscience, the ready sym
pathy, the sense of justice and the
plain common sense of the United
States can be depended upon by the
rest ofthe world and that it would
be stupid as well as unlawful to at
tempt to chain our sympathies, our
sense of justice and our common

Chicago, Oct. 11. Protesting
against the drop of over 90 cents a

This action was hastened by another
