"Plans of a senatorial group to force an extra session of congress by delaying ratification of the Kellogg anti-war pact in the winter session have put the spirit of fear and fight into the peace organizations.

"... Before that, it was generally assumed that treaty ratification would be almost automatic by the short session of congress, opening in December.  Public support of the treaty was believed to be so unanimous that Democratic speakers in the political campaign did not question the pact, which was used by the Hoover orators as a major reason for re-election of a Republican administration."
