With the Senate proposal, all that Is left to bring the 10-year pact into force Is the formal exchange of ratification documents. simply a case of senators being tired and wanting to go home. Agreement was reached to vote after an additional half hour of debate at today's session. Sen. Everett M. Dirksen of fl- linois, the Senate Republican leader, said he thought no more, than S to 10 votes would be cast against the treaty. Sen. J. William Fulbright (D- Arhi, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said in a separate interview that there might be 10 to 12 opposition votes. A two-thirds majority vote is required to ratify a treaty. Following Senate ratification, only President Elsenhower's signature and an exchange of ratification documents with Japan are needed to make the treaty effective. Plans called tor flying the U.S. documents to Hawaii, where Eisenhower ia now resting en route home from his Far Eastern tour. Japan completed the last o! the preliminary formalities early today as Emperor Hlrohito put the imperial seal to the treaty soon after Premier Nobusuke Kishi's Cabinet had given it final approval. The 10-year treaty replaces one signed with Japan in 1951. It is designed to give the Japanese more status of an equal ally rather than a conquered power. One year's notice after the 10- year period is required to make change in the treaty's terms. The United States agrees for the first time in writing to come to Japan's defense in case of attack, and relinquishes a former right to crush internal disorder in Japan. It also agrees to consult with Hie Japanese government before making any changes in its armed forces, -weapons or bases there and before deploying Japan- based American forces anywhere in Asia. It retains for the life of the treaty the right to maintain military bases in Japan, but gives up its veto power over letting a third nation have bases in Japan.
