WHY I AW 'GOING TO VOTE FOR
PRESIDENT WILSON '
By Eugene Manlove Rhodes
(Author of "Good Men and True,"
"The.Desire of the Moth;" etc.)
FOR WILSON, BECAUSE
1. Peace, neutrality; Mr. Wilson
has held us to these single-handed,
unflinching. At no time has he set
his face to any other goal.
2. .With instructions from us to re
vise the tariff downward, he has giv
en us downward revision of the tariff.
3. Leadership and legislation on
income tax, child labor, banking and
currency, rural credits, vocational
training for our enlisted men, and
other measures (past and to come)
in line with these.
4. Because for sjich progressive
and constructive legislation he ob
tains support from the opposition
more notably than any other leader
-in our history. He is president of
the United States and not president
of a political party.
5. Because when Wilson stumbles
he stumbles forward; when he
breaks his harness he breaks a trace
and not the breeching.
