refused to discuss the situation yester
day nor would any one else In tho Wood
camp stand sponsor for an explanation.
It was made fairly clear, however ihat
the question of who Is going to run the
practical end of Gen. wood's campaign
would bo settled before the end of the
present week.
Tho rather unfavorable results of the
Wood campaign In the middle West, par
ticularly in Illinois and Michigan, are
said to have precipitated the showdown.
.Mr. Hitchcock la known to have been
averse to carrying the fight into States
whero there were favorite son cam
paigns. In this view he was opposed by
Col. Procter. At any rate, tho Wood
people have carried their fight to favor
ite son States with more or Icsb discour
aging results. Wood failed to do a great
deal In Illinois, a favorite .son State.
Michigan, though not a favorite son
State, apparently added nothing to the
comfort of headquarters when It failed
to yield anything. There aro known to
be those connected with Wood head
quarters who think that a practical po
litician In full charge of the campaign
would be an arrangement superior to a
dual control system. Also there ap
parently Is a desire to find who. If any
one, is to blame for the meagre showing
In the middle West.
Col. Proctor, said yesterday that he
would be glad to talk to reporters ex
cept for the fact that his time wns lim
ited by an Important engagement. He
added that he will give out a statement
to-day. immediately after which he In

nlth Gen. Wood he did not Indicate.
Gen. Wood la campaigning to-day In
Ohio, another favorite son State.
Though Mr. Hitchcock would not dis
cuss the matter, a friend who asked him
about the reported rupture quoted him
as saying that he had been working as
hard as he could for Wood and that he
expected to continue to do so.
Last night Wood headquarters made
public the following tefcgram from
ChlUlcothc. Ohio, where Gen. Wood
f poke yesterday :
"Gen. Wood said to reporters here to
day: 'The report of the withdrawal of
Mr. Hitchcock from the Wood campaign
is, so far as I know, entirely incorrect.' '
Further than the foregoing there was
no definite Indication bf which of his
lieutenants Gen. Wood may choose to
put In supreme command, or that he will
let either go from his organization.
Col. Procter was one of the first men
to become prominently Identified with
the Wood boom. He was made chair
man of the Leonard Wood League, which
worked up the sentiment for the Gener
als candidacy, nnd later became chair
man of the Wood campaign committee.
He holds both posts to-day.
The services of Mr. Hitoheock, also
n anient Wood-supporter from the first,
but perhaps not so conspicuous in Wood
activities as Col. Procter, were comman
deered roon after the campaign machin
ery had been assembled nnd set In mo
tion. The relationship of Mr. Hitch
cock to Col. Procter has been defined
by persons closely nfllllatcd with tho
campaign organization as "consulting
ertrineer in things political and to keep
Col. Procter Informed."
This Is the second big rapture In the
Wood organization, the , first, some
months ago, having resulted In an under
standing between John T. Ilng and Cdl.
Procter, whereby the former severed his
connection with the Wood campaign
The Wood forces are planning n dally
speaking campaign In New Jersey from
r.ov until the primary next Tuesday.
Wood's headquarters yesterday called at
tention to an editorial In the Chicago
Unionist, a labor union organ, for his
stand against the efforts of radical ele
ments to gain control of the unions.

KARDEX means even more than just the highest
standard of efficiency in record keeping. Like
the telephone, the typewriter, the adding machine,

come to be recognized as one of the most important and
necessary factors in the conduct of modern business.
1 Any place records are kept Kardex can be applied
with beneficial results in the office, factory, store,
bank, institution, etc.
Kardex keeps the important .data "on every card
record in plain sight always, it does away with the
time wasting "hunt and search" card-in-box method
that necessitates the handling of a dozen or more
cards to find one. In Kardex your eye instantly locates
the card you want, one finger exposes it fully. You
refer to or make entry on either front or back without'
removing the card. That does away entirely with the
possibility of mis-filed or lost cards.
In comparison with the card-in-box method, Kardex
saves from 50 to 75 of time in record keeping. It,
increases the efficiency of records anywhere from
200 to 30.0. Your present record cards can be
used in Kardex. It is a simple thing to take your
cards out of drawers and boxes and put every one of
them in plain sight in Kardex.
Don't wait for the Kardex representative to seek
you out. Telephone for a Kardex demonstration.
