Summary

Cartoon shows Henry Cabot Lodge, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, escorting a battered figure on crutches (drawn as a rolled up scroll and labeled "Peace Treaty") out of a room labeled "Operating Room, Senate Committee on Foreign Relations." Conservative senators had grave concerns over the provisions of the Treaty of Versailes that ended the first World War and provided for the establishment of the League of Nations. When the Senate Foreign Relations Committee finally reported the Treaty to the full Senate on September 10, they included 45 amendments and reservations. President Wilson refused to accept any of the reservations and the Treaty was eventually rejected on November 19, 1919.
