E. HENNESSY SAN FRANCTSCO, June 25 Senator I Walsh of Massachusetts got to town I late last evening.

He brought along with him an old friend. Charlie Camp- bell of Worcester. Today John Lavelle. a former Charlestown man and brother of Asst Dlst Attorney Thomas D. Ivelle, Bernard T.

McCarron, a San rrancisco hotel manager, and William J. Fitzgerald, a successful real state i dealer, formerly of Worcester, took him In hand and showered real California I hospitality on the junior Senator from I the Bay State. New Englanders in San Francisco and they are legion are anxious to see Senator Walsh. Already he has been obliged to refuse many invitations of a social nature, feeling that his first duty Is to attend to affairs of State and party. Senator Walsh said today his attitude toward the League of Nations is unchanged and that he proposes to go to the mat with the Administration forces if necessary to prevent the party from tying up to the Wilson plan.

"I regard the League of Nations Issue as the paramount question in this campaign," said Senator Walsh. I dont want my party or my country dominated by. foreign influences. This prattle about interpretative reservations' Is bunk, pure and simple. Mr Wilson will not stand for any Americanization of the treaty.

I cannot follow him on that issue. If the party tnkes that side of the question I can see nothing hut disaster and defeat in tho November election. American. Not Party, Question "Senators and party leaders will tell you privately that they agree with my stand on this question, but the Influence of the President is such that they havent the courage to come out publicly and say so. Those who know me and those who have followed my public career know that I have supported President Wilson in almost everything that he has advocated.

But this is not a party question. It is an American question and I am for America first. "Mr Cummings, the chairman of the National committee, said yesterdav would be no fight on the floor on League of Nations, Senator Walsh told. assume that Mr Cummings is in a position to talk authoritatively. replied Mr Walsh, but make no mistake my attitude.

There will be fight theyll know it if they ever try to down our throats any plank which Indorses the League of Nations without the dotting of I or the crossing of a 't'. am satisfied that I shall have valuable aid in my stand on the question. There is a large and important element on this convention which will not stand for such a plank. I believe with Mr Bryan and other leading Democrats that the party cannot afford to go to the country on that issue. The League of Nations must be put behind us not before us.

I venture to may that whoever is the candidate or the party In the coming campaign will keep as far away from that issue ns lie can. We are not yet ready to surrender our sovereignty to Great Britain or any other foreign Power. Not Decided as to Candidate "If I am defeated by the committee on resolutions I shall carry the fight to the floor of the convention. That is absolute and final. "Have you made up your mind who you will vote for for the nominee? I have not, answered Senator Walsh.

Im not so much interested in men as I am In issues. Whom I will vote for for Presidential candidate will depend upon his attitude on the League of Nations. "What about the wet plank? That Is subordinate to the League of Nations Issue. "And "I cannot conceive of a Democratic National Convention denying any people struggling for liberty a word of sympathy. Richard D.

Long of Framingham, one of the four delegates-at-large, arrived today, accompanied by his daughter and one of his sons. 1 stand with Senator Walsh on the League of Nations issue. said Mr Long. "We propose to go still further and give him our support as the nominee for President of this convention. Senator Walsh is not taking his own candidacy for President very seriously.

He laughed at the idea and said that he regarded the enthusiasm of his friends had run away with their best Judgment. It Is merely a personal compliment on the part of the Massachusetts delegation, added the Senator.
