Ihe basic Idea WAS not original with Willon. ^vtn Henry Cabot Lodge, the' KepubUcan senator from MaiSMnusetts, had already fa- vopfeffe'-^Jeague of nations, butj he b^mfe very critics! of Wilson'^s plan. A, knowledge of the Wilson- Lodge feud is basic to an understanding of the tragedy that unfolded. Wilson (Ph.D., .lohns Hopkins) and Lodge (Ph.D., Harvsrd) were two learned but icy men who "developed a mu-j tuaf antipathy, which soon turned into freezing hatred. Wrong Moves The German armies, reeling under the blows of the Allies, were ready to give in by November, 1918. The formal ar- mlitice terms stipulated that Germany was to be guaranteed a peace based on the Fourteen Points. Wilson now towered at the diziy plnivjcle of his popiilarity end power. Rut regrettably his wartime sureness of touch began to desert him, and he made a series of costly fumbles. First came his brutally direct i appeal for a Democratic Congress in October, 1918. By a narrow margin, however, the voters returned a Republican Congress. Wilson next announced that he was sailing for France, presumably to his still enorm- thoroughly liod in that if could not be cut out without killing the entire pact. The Senate, he assumed, would not dare to kill the treaty for peace outright. Clemenceau, the I'rench realist, had little use for Wilson, the American idealist. He tors professed to favor the treaty in some form, yet they were unable to agree on any thing.

At least rumors of it are reviving. The young man involved In the fresh whispers is Billy Wallace, a commoner. Some people think that the coming of another baby to Queen Elizabeth 11, Margaret's sister, will make it easier for Margaret to marry a commoner. The birth of the new baby, coming after Prince Charles and Princess Anne, will drop Margaret to fourth place in the line of succession to the throne where she now stands third. Bachelor Billy Wallace is the charming 6-foot 4 son of Mrs. Herbert Agar. His father was the late Capt. Euan Wallace, a millionaire. Mrs. Agar's husband and Billy's stepfather is the distinguished American publisher and author, Herbert Agar, who makes his home in Britain. Diitinguished Family The grandfather of the 33-year-old Billy was the late Sir Edwin Lutyens, president of the Royal Academy holder of the nation's highly coveted Order of Merit. His grandmother is Lady Emily Lutyens, author and daughter of the first Earl of Lytton. Billy's mother is a brilliant and beautiful woman. The pretty Princess is extremely fond of Billy Wallace. They have known one another almost since early childhood. At one time — in their teens — they were in love. Doien Namcfl "Perhaps they know one another too well." said a friend. "The romance just wore off." Margaret's circle of young men frien^ls •widened, but Wallace was always included. More than a dozen young men's names were romantically coupled with Margaret's. They married someone else, or faded away, but not Billy. Margaret trusts his judgment in many things — even so far as in the approval of friends. Mark Bonham Carter once referred to Margaret's circle of friends as "The Wallace Collection." When the Princess broke of her romance with Group Capt. Peter Townsehd nearly four years ago,> Billy still was around. Helped Furnish House When he furnished a new town house two years ago, Margaret helped him. When you see the Princess at theaters, or at night clubs, Wallace is the young man most often with her. He was with her during the recent Goodwood racing meeting, one of England's biggest social-sport gatherings. The following week he was with Margaret and the Queen Mother at Sandringham. So, the romance rumors revived. Two years ago a London newspaper gave its front page to a story that they were engaged. Margaret and Billy were laughing about the story over the telephone, it is reported. "Who's that?" asked the Queen who was in the room. "It's Billy," said the Princess, "he says some newspaper's got us engaged." "Welcome him to the family," called out the Queen from across a breakfast cup of coffee. Some think the remark could have been prophetic. Could be cheaper...

They are airplanes built in barns, basements and garages by people with time and money to spend and an irresistable urge to put something different in the sky. "There are dam few things here that look and act like real airplanes," one observer said. Hai 4 Wings One has four wings, another is powered with an automobile engine. One tiny bl-plane, "The Flea," id 15 feet long. A Detroit man flew his creation half way here and drove the rest of the distance on the highwayi. The strange things began flying and driving in earlier this week with the opening of the annual convention of the Experimental Aircraft Assn., whose 50,000 members must rebuild conventional aircraft or start from scratch to qualify for membership. Most build airplanes for the same reason others build boats in basements or put dual car- ^g|.g|buretors on stripped-down cars -- the pleasure of creating something new and different. Dual Purpoie But some, like W. J. Bryan of Detroit, owner of an air craft he says can do several hundred miles an hour in the way, claim significant breakthroughs in aeronautical engineering. Bryan says his "Rotobil," which he can fly or drive after eight minutes of rearranging various parts, is "the pioneering answer to the needs of dual transportation all" in one—flying and driving." When the convention ends Sunday these hot - rodders of aviation will fold up their planes and put them on car trailers, steal off down the highways or even fly home.
