He advised Senator Thompson ot Kansas that the resolution as amended yesterday by tho Senate Expenditure Committee still ls objectionable. Considering al the circumstances. President Wilson told Senator Thompson the Chamberlain resolution even ss modified would in effect authorise a "dragnet" investigation by the military committee. The President informed Senator Martin of Virginia, democratic leader, yesterday that the Chamberlain res-i oluUon calling for an investigation of aircraft production and other war activities constituted a vote of lack! ot confidence In tbe administration snd tho expenditures committee amended it to eliminate all reference to an Investigation "of the conduct I of tho war"' "We are going to do all we can to defeat the resolution, even as revised," said Senator Thompson aftor a eonference at the White House. The President authorised me to say: that he is Just ss much opposed to, the amended resolution as be was to the original." May Probe Airplanes Only Mr. Thompson said he might offer a substitute to limit tbe military com. mlttee's Inquiry to the aircraft situation atone. The President, he satd, feels that the revised resoluUon Is too broadly drawn and still ls subject to tbe construction that would authorise the general inquiry by the military committee into the conduct ot tbe war Senator Thompson also said It was believed the military committee now has sufficient authority to proceed within its proper boundaries of inquiry, possibly with the exception of providing additional funds lor expenses The original Chamberlain resolution authorized an Inquiry into aircraft, ordnance and quartermaster affairs and into the "conduct of the war by or through the War Department." press proviso was added prohibiting the military committee trom interfering with the President direction ot the war. Senator Chamberlain declined to coment on the President's opposition to the amended resolution, but again indicated that should thn.senate defeat the resolution, he was for dropping tha Investigations. It ls understood to be Senator Chamberlain's r_aw that the mlltary committee is subordinate to the senate and that defeat of the resolution, denying tho committee the inqulsitoral authority lt seeks should be regarded as a dls- aproval of the inquiries.
