healthy truth is not sufficient, who
feed their morbidness on Freudian
nonsense and call their mental

was always more or less anxious
to kill the father, because of a

sound-minded jury, however, will
say that, if the facts are as stated,
the young man did exactly the

He was followed by other National

The house was sitting as a com

ing the League of Nations the su

James M. Cox, in his speech for

squarely on record here today as
favoring immediate ratification of
the peace treaty, and asserted that
America will deservedly bear "the
contimpt of the world" if she re

"Suppose Germany, realizIfg the
firest break among the allies proposes
something we cannot accept." said
Governor Cox. "Does Senator Hard
ing intend to send an army to Ger
many to press our terms? If, on the
other hand, Germany should accept
the chance we offered of breaking
the bond, it would be for the express
purpose of insuring a German-Ameri
can alliance, recognizing that the
allies, in fact, no nation of good
standing would have anything to do
with either of us."
The air of mystery and speculation
that has surrounded the "insert"
which Governor Cox had announced
would be given out as a part of his
formal address, was dispelled at I
o'clock this morning when the gov
ernor announced that there would be
no "Insert."
It had been expected that this ad
dition to the governor's speech would
deal with some important domestic
problem, and there had been much
conjecture as to its contents. No
reason for his decision not to make
public the "insert" was assigned by
the governor.
Not once in the whole course of
the speech was prohibition specifical
ly mentioned: but in that part deal
ing with law enforcement, the gov
ernor said:
"It would seem quite unnecessary
for any candidate for the Presidency
to say that he does not intend to
violate his oath of office. Anyone
who is false to the oath is more un
worthy than the law violator him
Great emphasis was laid by the
governor upon "progressivism as ep.
posed to reaction."
Other policies laid down by Gov
ernor Cox were: "Compensation" for
soldiers; reduction of armament upon
entrance into the league of nations;
relief from war time taxation, and
substitution of a small tax on all
business for the excess profits tax:
a federal budget system, with re
duction of national expense to four
billions annually, maximum; cease
less war on proAteers; definite state
ment of the respective rights of
workers and employers in collective
bargaining; ratification of the woman
sufgrage amendment; pitiless public
ity of campaign expenditures; and a
fair trial for private ownership of
railroads, with relief from congestion
