Senators Debate On Neutrality Act (Continued from Page One) of the Senate foreign relations com niittoe, and House majority leado f John W. McGormaek of Massachu setts.' Speaker Sam Bayburn, who i: out ol' town, did not attend. Opponents of Prosidont Boose velt's foreign policy charge that I, administration asks action that w lead inevitably to active participation In the war. Adminlstralion supporters ciain repeal will not change the .sl.atur of the United Status as a neutra and contend that it is necessary to combat Germany's unrestricted sou warfare. Those are tho broad issues of the debate that may last two or more weeks and may be one of the most Important In recent years. It offers the only opportunity since enactment 'of the .Lo])d-Loasc act for a full dress debate on foreign policy. Both sides are aware that the decision will influence the battle of tho Atlantic and the course of" the war. The bill will he called up by chairman Tom Connally, 0., Tex., of the Senate foreign relations committee immediately after the Senate convenes at noon. If enacted'It will virtually repeal the existing neutrality act by lifting all restrictions on American-merchant ships — allowing shipment of lend-leasu cargoes in American' ships equipped with guns and sending those ships through combat Hones directly to bel.ligerent ports. Opponents plan a nmjor fight although an administration survey indicated that the bill would be approved with about 55 to 00 Senators voting for it. The opposition has not disclosed its plan, although it had threatened to attach a declaration of war as a rider to tho bill thus forcing a vote on that much larger issue, Opponents disclaim any intention to filibuster as a small minority did against Woodrow W-ilson's armed ship hill in .1017 and the consensus was that the debate would not last much more than two weeks.
