Russian Situation Brings
Hitchcock -Borah Clash
Nebraska's Senior Senator Feels Idaho Solon's
Debate Buzzsaw When Former Attempts to
Lay Flowers on League of Nations Hoover
Outlines Administration Standi.
By GEORGE F. ARTHIER.
ftaebiimtaa min'M Oases .
Wahigton. May !6.-l$pciat
Telegram.) The Russian problem
held the boards yesterday in every
branch of the I'nited States govern
mml. While Secretary of Stats
Hughe was considering the invita
tion to participate in the adjourned
Genoa conference at The Hague, to
discuss th Russian problem, Sena
tor Borah startled the senate by in
troducing s resolution favoring the
recognition of the soviet government
of Kuttia. '
While Senator Borah a advo
cating recognition of soviet Russia,
not because he approves of the sov
iet form of government, but because
lit thinks that is the wiser course to
pursue, Senator Hitchcock under
took to show that the absence of
the United States from the Genoa
conference had precipitated, the
breakup of the ttatheritig. . The
United States i today a cipher, he
mid. in world affairs, fie argued
that the moral support of this coun
try had been withdrawn from
l urope and that this lack of support
was prolonging the present state of
instability there. The league of na
tions, he urged, had shown Us eU
tCitiveness by bringing about an
agreement between l'oland and Ger
many for a plebiscite over the Siles
Senator Borah expressed doubt as
to the effectiveness of the league,
but hoped what Senator Hitchcock
said was true. If true, it proved. the
league could work as a European
organization without the aid of the
United States. He had rend, how
ever, that some critics hold that the
league had already sown seeds of
war which could not be extirpated
without the necessity of another
Despite these arying views in the
opinion of well-informed men. the
Senator Hitchcock, former cham
pion of the defunct league of na
tions, thought the opportunity ripe
to throw a few flowers on the cof
fin of the league, with the result that
he got in the way of the Borah buzz
saw, which is acknowledged to be an
effective instrument in debate.
Senator Borah's argument for the
recognition of the soviet government
was one thing, but the interchange
of compliments between himself and
Senator Hitchcock was quite an
other. While Senator Borah is not
in complete sympathy with the ad
ministration, maintaining his irrecon
cilable position so far as relations
with Europe are concerned, he re
mains an out-and-out opponent of the
league. Senator Hitchcock has ' as
sumed the role of a critic of the ad
ministration, a role which induced
h;m to fight the position taken by the
democratic leader, Oscar Under
wood, on the limitation of armament
treaties, and which renders it diffi
cult for him to see anything good in
Irreconcilable Not Pleased.
The debate itself served to show
that the administration had been hew
ing cour winch tales into con
tideratton the necriity of dealing
with world problems a Ititf way
while preserving the United States
from the entangling alliance til league
membership. It hat not wholly
plcatrji the honeft irmoncilalik. and
it not pleating at all to the demo
cratic leaders, who are forced by po
litical necessity to justify their course
in tht league fight whenever an oc
administration neer did wiser
thing than when it remained out
tide the Genoa conference, which
wis political rather than economic,
and where the influence ot this gov
ernment would have been nil at com
pared w ith the tremendous influence
it it now in position to exert. The
same line of reasoning it is held,
applies to the decision of the sen
ate, supported by the administra
tion, to remain outside of the. league.
The nations of Europe now see the
I'nited States as the clear-headed in
fluence which mut be heeded, if the
situation now existing is to be rem
edied, and this government wa. never
more potent in its influence than at
Hoover Expresses Attitude.
Regardless of the American atti
tude towards the Hague invitation,
the attitude of this government re
mains the tame towards Russia. -It
was expressed forcibly in an address
made here last night by Herbert
Hoover, secretary of commerce, and
head of. the American Relief com
mission in Russia. There can be no
recognition of Russia until funda
mental changes have seen made,
guaranteeing life and property and
recognizing the sanctity of con
tracts, he said. ,
Mr. Hoover showed that Russian
commerce had never been an impor
tant thing for this country. Wh'cn
running full-' blast before the war,
Russia only took 1 per cent of the
exports of the United States, a per
centage, which would furnish em-'
pioymenf -f or only ,30,000 people in
tfce-Uflited States- ,. ---
These solemn facts are outstand
ing, he said,'regarding,.Russia. ?
In the first place, Russia is bank
rupt, She had no. productivity; her
factories and. her mines even where
founded on Russian material, are pro
ducing but from 2 to 25 per cent.
Her railways are transporting less
than 7 per cent of their, prewar
capacity; her agricultural production
is below her own needs instead of the
great normal surplus; she has eaten
up her entire fat and for a long
time, can .have nothing to exchange
for the services our workmen or
the savings of our investors.
"An Economic Vacuum."
Russia is. today an economic
vacuum, Mr Hoover says, quoting
words formerly used by Secretary
Hughes. He points out the
fallacy of the argument that the
American attitude towards Russia is
based on the desire to recover in
vestments already, there, since the
American relief freely given Russia
il several timtt the amount of Ameri
can fund (roren in Rusa.
The United States i not prepared
to go to war with Russia to compel
protection of ies and P'opetty, But
it tan retoe to have dealing with
a government which will not give
That is the basil of the entire !
Ameriran position. Assurance! of
the fulfillment of contracts, the pro
tection of Me and property are es
sential conditions to recognition. It
it this change which the American
government, in its desire to help
Kuciia, hopes to tee brought about.

Built as Users Want Them
In the construction of GMC trucks every
unit is considered from : the standpoint of
the user's actual need. V
Will it stand up well under the grueling
strain in-continuous operation? Is it easy
and simple to! care for? Is it easy and
-simple to, adjust and replace so that the
truck can be kept in continuous service?
Such questions as these- resulted in build
ing GMC trucks as users want them.
In no other truck but the GM.C will you find
. all of these big economy features, such as
- the Two-Range Transmission, Removable
Cylinder Walls, Dual Cooling System,
Radius Rods,- Removable Valve Lifter
Assemblies, Pressure Lubrication every
one of which is indispensable to continuous
satisfactory service. , .
