THREE PRELIMINARY QUESTIONS [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 20 January 1919
THREE PRELIMINARY QUESTIONS NEW YORK, Friday.-AVrordtag'to tho United Press correspondent there are three questions concerning tho opening session of the Peace Confer ence on Saturday which dominate in terest, namely:-(U Will the session !he secret? (2) Will the Bolshevik problem or the League of Nations be first considered? (3) Will M. Clemenceau or Dr. Wilson preside? It is impossible to lenrn whether the (session will be secret. It is expected that the league proposal will be first considered, since M. Clemenceau has pledged himself to that effect. It is most likely that M. Clemenceau . will preside; hence Dr. Wilson will attend merely as a member of the American delegation. LEAGUE OF NATIONS PROPOSAL 1VANCOUVER.
