THE SECOND GREAT CRISIS AT THE PEACE
CONFERENCE: PRESIDENT WILSON INSISTS THAT
THE COVENANT OF THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS
BE MADE AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE TREATY
THE second great crisis at the Peace Conference occurred immediately upon the return of President Wilson to Paris after his hasty trip to America to sign the bills passed by the Congress which adjourned on March 4th. The two sea voyages on the comfortable George Washington gave the President a much-needed opportunity to rest-- and rest under the close care of Doctor Grayson. If it had not been for these respites during the heavy struggle at Paris, one doubts whether the President would have been physically able to endure the strain as long as he did. He has the rare ability to rest completely, discharge all worry from his mind, and by exercise, deep-breathing, fresh air, and occasional amusing talks with his friends
