WOOD FAVORS U.S. SOFT VOICE AND BIG STICK Letter States International as Well as Domestic Cam- * paign Platform. ELEVEN POLICIES GIVEN “Speak softly but carry a bis stick” is the attitude of Maj. Gen. Leonard Wood toward international policies, ac cording to an announcement made today through a letter written by the general to a friend. The platform on which Gen. Wood pro poses to conduct his administration, should he be successful in his campaign, contains eleven points, including: Spreading the war burden over a longer period of years. Return of the railroads to private ownership under government super vision. A strong international policy and the nse of the "big stick” in the pro tection of American trade. A small but excellent army and ever ready navy. A well equipped diplomatic and consular service. A square deal to capital and a square deal to labor. A protective tariff. A vigorous program of development of commerce. A budget system. More respect for law and order and property rights. The functioning of each governmen tal department strictly within its constitutional limits. A fight between Gen. Wood and Senator Hiram Johnson in their rivalry to lie come successors to Theodore Roosevelt is in progress, according to dispatches from Washington. ROOSEVELT PRAISE FOR WOOD’S RIVAL. The Johnson campaign managers have made public a letter written by Col. Roosevelt in 191 G in which he says: “Hiram Johnson, of all public men in this country, is the one with whom I find myself in most complete sympathy. You are perfectly safe in following his lead.” Gen. Wood’s supporters, however, were ready to dispute this claim. In the first place, they pointed out, the letter is four years old and conditions have changed greatly since it was written. Second, Roosevelt said that of the men in public life Johnson was the one with whom he was in closest sympathy. Wood was not in public life, but that did not mean that he and Roosevelt were not in close sym pathy, the Wood supporters contend. According to Washington dispatches, Johnson has canvassed the senate and has decided that the .treaty will be rati fied. It is said, therefore, that lie will proceed with a campaign advocating the withdrawal of the T'nlted States from the leagne of nations. Zell C. Swain, Indiana manager for Senator Johnson. Las wired Senator Johnson asking him to visit Indianapolis for a conference with his state workers. The message asked the senator to stop over in Indianapolis on his return trip from a eampaign tour of North Dakota and South Dakota which started today. SPEAKING TOIR TO BE ARRANGED. The object of the conference, Mr. Swale said, would lie to arrange for the speak ing tour of Indiana in April in which Senator William E. Derail will aecom- I any the Califorfiian into this state to give momentum to the Johnson move ments. It is probable that Indiana women will not be permitted to vote in the presi dential primaries. Charles O. Roe\nler and Will H. Thompson have informed Frederick E. Schotemeier, secretary of the republican state committee, that they believe that the law granting women the right to vote for presidential electors next November does not confer the power to express a choice in the primaries. The opinion is in accordance with a re cent opinion expressed by W. W. Spen cer, a democratic member of the state board of election commissioners. The attorneys also agreed that women can not be delegates to the state conven tions under the Indiana law, hut that they can be delegates to the national con vention as the conventions are the judge of their own membership. It was the opinion of the attorneys that the legislature can confer on women the power to vote at presidential pri maries and it was thought probable rhnt this subject would be taken up if a special sessinu of the legislature is called'-by Gov. Goodrich. Captain Holligoss, 75, Dies in Noblesville Special to The Times. NOBLESVILLE, Ind., Feb. 25,-Capt. William I>. Holligoss died suddenly at his home in this county yesterday at the age of 75.

Asa spectacle showing what wonders American Ingenuity can accomplish, the twentieth automobile show of ttye Indian apolis Automobile Trade association, to be held in the Manufacturers’ building at the state fairgrounds March 8 to 13, will be of deep interest to every patriotic American, exhibitors and officials of the association predict. The show will be i noteworthy, too, as a great celebration of the complete post-war resumption of all activities in the motor industry. The seventy-five makes of passenger cars to be shown at the twentieth show in reality are the first post-war models. The cars produced in 1919 were little . more than refined and slightly changed j replicas of pre-war models. This was | due to the fact that automotive engi ! neers, almost to a man, were engaged In the designing of war materials. Few, if any, had given thought to the details of the cars of coming peace times prior to the signing of the armistice. Between Armistice day and the date when the 1919 cars had to he produced there was entirely too little time to permit of much real thought and planuing. So, with the lapse of more than a full year of peace, this year's cars may be called the first after-war designs. The automobile industry does not re gret its wartime experience, for many valuable lessons were learned. Today the things developed to help beat the Huh are being put into practice in motor produc tion for the utility and comfort of the American people. While there are numerous improve ments in the cars to be seen at the twentieth show, experts who have viewed many of the same products at the Chi cago and New York exhibitions say that there is emphasized in them the logical development of a great many tendencies in design which have been growing for several years. Cars are on a higher plane both in quality and price. The price raise is Justifiable, experts say, not only because of higher costs of materials and labor, but because superior workmanship and specifications have been used in the 1920 products. Demand for quality, with price as a secondary consideration, is becoming a more and more universal trait of Americans. This has affected in many ways the models which may be INDIANA DAILY TIMES, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 25,1920. seen at the twentieth show. Motor mak ers who formerly set a price and built a car to conform to It, now make the car and then fix the price. Indiana people will have their oppor tunity to observe all these things at the Indianapolis exhibition, in as great de tail its they would have had at the na tional shows, with the added atteraction contained in the superior beauty of the local affair.
