MY ONE BEST REASON FOR
VOTING FOR WILSON . '
By Adolph S. Ochs
(Publisher of the New York Times.)
My reason for favoring the re-election
of Pres. Woodrow Wilson, brief
ly stated, is because he is a man in
every way qualified by courage, abil
ity, American ideals, learning and
moral and, physical strength for the
office of president of the United
States, and is superlatively equipped
i by four years' experience in the office
during one of the most trying periods
in the history of this country.
I am not blindly in agreement with
all that Pres. Wilson favors in public
affairs, but the differences are of
small importance whin I considesJiis
great achievements, which have my
admiration and approval.
I sincerely believe that a few years
hence, when present evils are better
understood, it will be difficult to find
any one who will have the courage
to say that he or his forbears voted
against Woodrow-Wilson for re-election.
