In his first post-election speech, delivered yesterday before the student body of Milligan College, hits alma mater, Col.

In speaking of the policy to be pursued when he takes cvor the reins as the chief executive of this State, he said: "I promise to - recommend to the Legislature that the Governor be taken off every State board, and take the school board out of politics." The address waa delivered at the Milligan chapel exercises, while friends of the "Littlo Giant," learn Ing that he was to speak, also at tended. He paid a tribute to the mem ory of his brother, Bob Taylor, thrice Governor of Tennessee and later United States Senator.

DISASTER CAUSED , BY WILSON BRYAN No Reason to Believe Harding Won't Advance Cause of World Peace. Lincoln, Neb. Nov. 3. Demo cratic disaster was inevitable be cause of the position of President Wilson on the League of Nations, de clared William Jennings Bryan in an election statement issued here. "The President laid the founda tion for the disaster and Gpv. Cox completed the structure," he said. "The President tried to drive out of public life every Democrat who dared to differ from him even In mfSute details, while he made no effffort to strengthen the democrats who made him the keeper of the consciences." He asserted that the people were compelled to choose between" Pres idential infalibility" and "respect of the opinion of the. majority of the Senate." "Now that the participation will rest upon the will of Congress and not upon the arbitrary opinion of a single man," he continued, "we may expect that universal disarmament will be made one of the conditions upon which we will attempt to ad vise. "The country will expect Mr. Harding to carry out his pledge to advance the cause of world peace and there is no reason to doubt that he will do so." Quarterly Conference. Presiding Elder Robt.
