Weary and War-Worn,
Voters Sought Change
WHILE President Wilson railed for a
"solemn referendum" on the
League of Nations, and while the stand
ard bearers of the two leading parties
accepted that as the chief issue in the
election, the people of the United States,
in the opinion of The Star, marched to
the polls Tuesday, moved by the one de
sire to return to normalcy. They wanted
a change because they were tired, worn
out by mental and physical strife, fa
tigued by war and by after-the-war
wrangling.
This explains the republican land
slide. Undoubtedly thousands were
swayed by the league issue, but to The
Star it appears that the great mass of
voters were indifferent to it. Surely
Scpttle typifies this state of feeling, for
if the league were considered moment
ous by the voters, how could it be pos
sible that Cox should be outdistanced
here, not only by Harding, but also by
Christen sen, who frankly proclaimed in
Seattle and elsewhere that the league is
sue was but a "smoke screen" for the
two old parties? What has occurred in
Seattle manifested itself, tho not so dis
tinctly, in the rest of the state, and
thruout the nation.
The people sought a change. To The
Star it seems that they were tired of
"single track" leadership, which kept
the national capital in a continuous siz
zle and stew on a single issue, while oth
er matters, of more direct importance to
the general public, were allowed scant or
no consideration. They were tired of
the unending and unyielding bickering
between the senate and the president,
and they voted for a new deal. The high
cost of living meant something to them
every moment of the day. It touched
them at every turn. It meant some
thing practically. The League of Na
tions had only their theoretical interest.
The people, in short, wanted peace of
mind. They could not obtain it under

the Wilson scheme of things, so they
made it a republican landslide, and the
next president and congress can work
harmoniously and with greater dis
patch.
Naturally in a landslide, such as
characterized the Tuesday election, poor
men are elevated along with the good
candidates in the victorious party, and
conversely, many good men suffer in the
handicaps of the defeated party. Thus
we have the instance of Senator Phelan
in California, democrat, progressive,
leader in the anti-Jap movement, losing
to a comparatively unknown republican.
It isn't that the people were neces
sarily against the principles enunciated
by President Wilson. They may or may
not have been. They may or may not
have been for the league. They may or
may not have been for his policies on oth
er questions. Hut they apparently were
not satisfied to have any one question
dominate the president and congress to
the practical exclusion of everything
else. They sought relief; they wanted
to get back to normal times and methods
and considerations. They wanted to
settle down in peace. And they chose
the republican party as the instrument
to bring this about.
It is now up to President-elect Hard
ing and to the republican congress elect
ed with him. It is now up to the re
publican party to make good. The coun
try has many domestic questions before
it—living coats, enormous taxation, war
restrictions, industrial problems, social
service.
It is the American way to shake
hands and make up after the battle;
there are hut few sore spots left from
this campaign; and now the people
stand ready to back up the newly elected
officials. I*et them but keep faith, get
down to business, restore the nation to
normalcy, and they may rest assured
that the country and its people wish
them well.
