That Senator William B. Borah of Idaho, \irreconcilable\ opponent of the league, w?ll be on the committee on resolutions, and will help frame the Republican platform at Chicago, is considered a certainty, and hacked by other supporters of Senator Hiram Johnson, ha will fight like a bearcat against any Indorsement _of. the treaty of Versailles as amended by Senator Lodge's op other reservations. The Anrertcan naval men who wilj fly the giant dirigible R-38 across thei Atlantic-are rushing preparations for the flight in- London and ex- pect to start their long flight in early summer.

But members of both sides admit they do not believe either 6orah or Bryan will drop the fight there. Senator Johnson has made the 'no league\ idea the main spring of him campaign and contrary\ to predictions, tho dope gives the Califorriian tieinen- dous power i n the.G. O.
