SCHEME OF PREPARATION
>ot Expecting Country to Get Into
War, Because He Does not Expect
Certain Gentlemen to Get in andj
Make Mess of Things.
Shadow Lawn, X. J., Oct 21.?Presi- I
dent Wilson expounded the merits of!
the federal reserve act and the rural
credits system to 3.000 farmers an<li
their friends here today. He urged
the farmers to join in the general j
scheme of preparedness which has j
nnHorrakpn. and said:
UCCli Uliuv* y _
"I am not expecting this country t<v j
get into war, partly because I do not
expect certain gentlemen to get m ;
and.make a mess of things."
Referring to the campaign, Mr. Wilson
said he was glad it was nearly
There has been too much loose
talk," he declared. "Let us sober up
and get down to -business again. Our
relations with the rest of the worl^
are to be incomparably more intimate
in the years to come. That is .thw
reason we are submitting certain men
to the third degree concerning where
tljey stand on world politics." j
The main points of the president's
"More has been done for the farmer
in these last three and a liair years
than was ever attempted before, partly
because in some of the earlier genera,
tions the largess of nature was so
great that it did not seem to demand
national attention, b tualso because the
attention of the country has been conCfntrated
by the leadership of men
with a special point of view.
"I can illustrate the point of view!
"by the way in which the tariff has
been treated. You as farmers never1
were told. I take it that you were]
getting the direct benefit of the tarift.
You were told you were getting the
indirect benefit of the tariff. You were
getting it with extreme indirection
because you were getting it by having
duties placed upon almost everything
that you had to use and, therefore,
the cost of almost everything
that you had to use was enhanced and
you were promised hardly more than
this, that if the country prospered,
you would necessarily prosper with the
country; but you would pay for the
prosperity at a very considerable price.
That was not added, but that was implied.
"JAnd the whole point of view of our
legislation has been this, that a spe*
cial set of men who thought they could
.guide the nation better than anybody
else and preferred to guide it in private,
asked certain chief beneficiaries
of the tariff to come together and suggest
what the schedules of the tariff
~ should be, and then to contribute the
* literature and the support of the orators
and also the other instrumentalities
or propaganda to make the country
believe that if these men who
planned the tariff were rich the rest
of the country would share tneir
Motive All Right
^ "I am riot impugning the motives
of these men. Some of them, many of
them, may have had tiigh and patriotic
motives.' But I am ready to impugn
their intelligence. They did not know
that unless a nation is lifted with
something like systematical movement,
the whole mass participating in the
uplift, it does not suffice to lift up
*nn hMiefit certain parts of it
ft The olject of the government is
t partnership, common counsel, everybody
in the participation of wniclt

So that these gentlemen have had the
idea that it was best for us to be in
the hands of guardians. Now I, foj

the difficulty that began describing,
the difficulty of co-operation
im-nrr fnrinprs. And. therefore, more
interesting still are the successful efforts
that have recently been made
by the department of agriculture to
guide the farmer in his rural organization
which will bring him into cooperation,
to supply him with the scientific
information of the world with
iegard to farming, not only in written
form, but in the form or demonstrations.
Experts for Fanners.
"The recent legislation and the re
cent appropriations of congress inaK?
it possible to put two demonstrators
and experts in every rural county tf
the Union, in order that by way of
demonstration in the neighborhood itself
the scientific knowledge and exi
perience of the world in agriculture
should be carried to the farmer. No
such tremendous educational machinery
was ever created before in thi.?
"There are two things necessary to
make farming a business so far as
selling the crop is concerned. You
j have got to know where you can get
j your best price and you have got to
| be able to ship in the most advantageous
way. It is, therefore, desirable
that you should co-operate with your
neighbor farmers in order to have a
single agency through which to make
large shipments to the right places.
These instrumentalities are suggested
and in some part supplied by the agricultural
department. We have been
trying to take the government of the
country out of the control and from
under the guidance of small groups
and square it with the cousel of the

There are Others.
"What has surprised some of these
gentlemen is to discover how man>
ethers there are who really understand

and it is 'beginning to understand
"Now I want to illustrate in another
way that has nothing to do with farming,
what we have been y*ying tc
accomplish and I want you to fceet
in mind, as the central word of the
whole idea of government mat I am
trying to expound, the word 'co-operation.'

the engineers undertaking the great;

acteristic of times of war, realize that J
the nation was not safe in time of war j

"I am very gljd to take advantage
of the present concentration upon the
problems of war to make it evident
to the country that those same problems
are the problems of peace.
"In the immediate future this country
ias got to draw upon its re
sources in the most intelligent way
and has got to make conquest of all

Almost anybody will see it if you
point it out to him. It had just not
been seen by a sufficiently energetic
body of men and now we are seeing
"Some of my most interesting experiences
in recent months have been
in connection with this. For example,
representatives of the great merical

States, when they saw what we were
after, came r.nd offered jto co-operate

kind of co-operation which. would be
necessary in time of war. Represen!
tatives of the great scientists of the
country have done just what the engineers
have tried to do with regard
to the industries. My friends, thi3
- country is waking up to its unity, to
' the sense of partnership and co-opera
tion and co-ordination which has been
1 by intention at any rate, and I hope
by performance, the impelling motive

Worship on Empty Stomach.
"That is the reason we recently ap
propriated $36,000,000 to these vari

scribing as against only $24,000,000 in
! previous administrations. That is the
i reason why we have worked upon this
philosophy you cannot worship God on
empty stomach. You cannot be as
:> patriotic when you are starving. The
spirit of the nation in some sense
; comes from the feeding of the nation.
' "There is an interesting illustra*
: tion of how much the Bible illuminates
the human spirit in the fact that
i in the Lord's prayer the first petK
