PRESIDENT JO AGAIN URGE
, "PEACE INSURANCE"
Pittsburgh, Oct 4 (On Board Presi
dent Wilson's Train). President
Wilson iffrushing westward today for
his first 6ig campaign speech In the
ueari oi me cuuniry. xuo uussiuu
this time, his manager says, has the 1
same object as when he followed the
same route last winter. He goes td
urge "preparedness for peace."
The "peace insurance" then de
sired and later secured was a vote
from congress materially strength- x
ening the army and navy. Now he
wants a vote from the people on
whether his "foreign policy of peace"
shall be preserved or whether the
Republican party shall be placed in'
power and this policy changed. The
president has declared such a change
would certainly draw the nation "into
the embroilments of the European
war."- The new rallying cry of. the
Democratic leaders is "prepare for
peace by re-electing Wilson." '
The president will be in Chicago
for a short time tonight, but will
make no public appearance.
