Th* bright aide Is that Just such
a result will make the argument for

The Plumb Plan League Is not
roing to take any part directly In
this political campaign, according to
Mr. Plumb. Later he modified this
itatement somewhat to aay, "We are
loing what we can to show th* paople
that the men who voted for the
?*ch-Cummlna bill did not vote in
he public Interest." But the entire
energy of the movement at present.
ie set forth, i* to educate the people
ilong the line* of the Plumb plan.
It wa* unfortunate. In a sense, acording
to Mr. Plumb, that his Idea
vas forced before the public for a
leclston during the consideration of
he Ksch-Cummins bill. When he
iresented hi* plan, he Insists, he was
orced to draft the legislation with
>nly a few days of notice because
Representative Ksch. chairman of the
-louse Committee on interstate Comnerce,
demanded that he present bis
"You had no hope of success then,"
"No, the people were not ready for
t," he replied. "But It gave us somehlng
definite about which to talk
ind, therefore, it was of some beneIt."
As to the present political camtaign,
Mr. Plumb said, to throw the
ssue Into the political ring would do
10 good. For this reason, he says.
10 attempt was made to have either
>arty consider the League proposals
vhen the platforms were being
idopted. For this reason, no demand
s being made on either candidate of
if the great parties.
"Ultimately, of courqp, It will become
a political issue when the peo>le
demand that It be an Issue," he
iddcd. "Until then, our effort is to
>e purely along the lines of educatng
the people, We must show them
ivhat was Intended by the league
plan, show them the benefits or the
idea, and then, when the economic
lemands force it as a political issue,
we will have it as a political issue."
