You only could remember that you were a Candidate?
That your measure, Mr. Hughes?
That the substance of your "views"?
And your foresight is as crooked as your hindsight isn't straight?
Then there's nothing left to tell
N And your silence serves as we.ll.
What Wilson DID, we know. His deeds stand squarely in the sun,
But you in his place, pnly God knows what you WOULD have done!
WIFE OF PROGRESSIVE LAWYER
TELLS WHY SHE'S FOR WILSON
By Mrs. Amos Pinchot
(Wife of Famous Progressive Att'y
Who Supported Roosevelt in 1912.)
My main reason for wishing that
Pres. Wilson should be re-elected is
that he has begun a great work for
the future peace of this country and
the world and should be given power
to carry it through.
Knowing well that a real democ
racy is not easily rushed into war, he
has restored to the people through
his wise constructive domestic poli-
cies much of the power they had lost
under the domination of Wall st He
has refused to invade Mexico at the
bidding of the interests, and is en
deavoring to establish a solid and
helpful relation to that struggling
But most important of all, Mr.
Wilson has declared that the United
States should co-operate with other
nations in some practical plan for
the freedom of the seas and "the pre
vention of war begun without full
submission of the causes to the opin
ion of the world." With ,Woodrow
Wilson -as our president we can hope
to play an honorable and useful part
in such a plan for wprld peace.

WHY I AM PROUD TO BE AN
By President Wilson
The reason I am proud to be an
American is because America; was
given birth to by such conceptions
as these, that its object in the world,
its only reason for existence as a
government, was to show men the
paths of liberty and of mutual serv
iceability, to lift the common man
out of the paths, out of the sloughs
of discouragement and even despair;
set his feet upon firm ground, tell
him, "Here is the high road upon
which you are as much entitled to
walk as we are, and we will see that
here is a free field and no favor, and
that as your moral qualities are and
your physical -powers, so will your
success be. We will not let any man
make you afraid and we will not let
any man do you an injustice." At
National Conference on Church and
Country Life, Columbus, O., Decem
ber 10, 1915.
