WILSON EAGER TO START TOUR
Ashbury Park, N. J., Sept 29.
Four issues peace, prosperity, busi
ness preparedness and the eight-hour
law will be enunciated by Pres. Wil
son when he goes into country to
wind up his campaign for re-election,
it was learned today. These issues
he regards as ones upon which voters
will vindicate or denounce his ad
ministration. The president is feeling fit, appears
a trifle heavier and says he's in great
trim for coming trips west. He is en
thusiastic about going as is Mrs.
Wilson, who will accompany him
everywhere. It will be Mrs. Wilson's
first taste of a real campaign and she
is entering into it with zest
The man on the street, the presi
dent believes, is thankf ul, first of all,
"that his country is at peace. "For
that reason his foremost issue will
be an, appeal to voters not to accept
what president terms "radical changes-
of policy which may alter whole
aspect of the nation's life" and "en
danger the present terms of peace
and good will withthe world."
Secondly, he will point to great
prosperity of country and define how
''administration has placed a legisla
tive bulwark under this to preclude
possibility of financial depression at
conclusion of European war.
He plans to offer a constructive po
licy to meet unprecedented economic
conditions which will arise when Eu
rope again is able to enter competi
tive markets of trade.
Finally, the president will chal
lenge his political critics to meet
squarely the eight-hour day issue
and state what they would have done
in a Situation similar to that con
fronting him recently when a great'
railroad strike was" threatened.
"Would you now, if in power, fe
peal the Adamson law?" is a ques
tion which may be expected) by
Hughes in the near future.
