Anxious to co-operate With the British and French governments in their desire to put into Immediate operation the Dawes reparation plan, administration officials are seeking some method by which further American participation could be accomplished.

This resolution of ratification leaves no donht that the legislative branch rather than the executive has supreme control In this regard. The resolution provides "that the United States shall not be represented or participate in any body, agency or commission, nor shall any person represent the United States as a member of any body or commission in which the United States is authorized to par-tienpate by this (German-American) treaty, unless and until an act of congress of the United States shall provide for such representation or participation."
