He s;o informed Senator Lodge, who tentatively accepted the inodified reservation, as did some of the leading Democrats, Including Senator Simmons. "' • . Democrats Slow to Promise. Democratic senators were slow in promising their support, while they weighed the meaning of the letter written to Senator Hitchcock by President Wilson, reiterating his opposition to any reservation which would impair "the full force" 'or article 10. Some leaders predicted, however, that before the flay was over it might be possible to tell definitely whether the 1 compromise negotiations were to succeed. The cfianges in the reservation are understood to have grown out of the compromise movement conducted by Senator Watson of Indiana, for the Republicans, and Senator Simmons of North Carolina for the Democrats. It was said, however, that Senator t Simmons had not'definitely accepted the TEACHERS' EXAMINATION W.
