A" county committeeman "speaking of
the meeting last night called it the sec
ond volley of the opening gun of the
Demciatic campaign in. Boone County.
"Governor Gardner's ammunition biooght
down the game, ton," be added.
This county; is recognized' by all fac
tions as sure of going 'overwhelming
Democratic in any election, and this cir-'
cumstance generally has tended to dam
pen interest in political rallies, particu
larly this early in the campaign. To a
wider interest in the issues represented
by the -opposing parties, to the import
ance of the questions the next adminis
tration most decide, and to the fact that
wometrat least have en teredo We political
arena in earnest may be attributed the
some hat increased interest apparent
here. Neither side is taking chances in
the, present campaign.
The reorganization of the Democratic
Club of the University, undet whose
auspices the meeting last night was held,
accounts for the large attendance of
students who ordinarily would not have
thought of attending a campaign rally.
It was plainly evident from their enthu
siasm that students are taking a lively
interest in state and national politics.
Their attendance indicated that the
women students are as interested as the
men and determined to'take as active a

Clare Magee, president of the Demo
erstic dub, presided. Others on the
platform, besides the speakers, were G.
R Sapp, Democratic county chairman;
Sidney Rollins, who Introduced Governor
Gardner, and J. Kelly Wright Mrs.
Gardner and her small daughter. Miss
Janet were in the audience.
Congressman Nelson, who is now a
candidate for re-election, opened his re
msrks before the governor's party ar
rived at the theatre.
Mr. Nelson turned his guns on the op
position party first by referring to the
"unpatriotic methods of the -majority in
Congress during the last two years." He
said the vain attempt to prove graft and
mismanagement in the conduct of the
war wis not approved by the rank .and
file of Republicans, but, was a petty
partisan move. He condemned the Re
publican leaders for the manner in
which they harrassed President' Wison
during his illness.
"And lately," Mr. Nelson said, "the
Republican have come out with the
claim they have 'cleaned boose.' As a
matter of fact tbe Republican bouse
cleaning has only been a superficial

Mrs. Moss, who followed Congressman
Ntlson, confined her remarks chiefly to
the relation of women to politics. She
stressed the part Universit women must
take since the ratification of the nine
teenth amendment and their consequent
"You should be vitally interested in
pol'ical questions and campaign!," she
told the women, "because of all the
women in the nation you, at a class, are
best prepared to cast an intelligent bal
lot You can become the greatest mora!
force in these United States, if you will
but take advantage of your opportunity,
or you can stand aside and let it ''pass
without performing what has become a
solemn duty and obligation."

Governor Gardner showed that Cox
has been a pioneer in the fight for equal

concession to the cause was in October,
1918. Ohio, he said, was the fifth state

As he did in his afternoon address,
the Governor called attention to the
condition of prosperity existing in this
country now. Figures he produced show
that in 1910, when the Republicans were
at the height of their power, 1500.000
citizens had money deposited in. hanks,
while today 40.000,000, more than one-
third hte total population, have accounts.
This unexampled era of prosperity he
attributed to Democratic legislation.

His remarks on the League of Nations
evoked numerous demonstrations, indi
cating thorough approval on the part
o( his audience.
"AMtltlCANS WANT LEACIT."
"The American people want the
League," the Governor said, "but a Re
publican Senate is keeping it from
them." He briefly described the' way in
which tbe league worked, and expressed
confidence tbe mothers of the nation
would see to it that it was endorsed at
the polls in November.
Charges of excessive taxation made by
Arthur M. Hyde, the Republican guber
natorial nominee, are a display of his
ignorance of state business affairs. Gov
ernor Gardner declared. For, he said,
CoL Hyde referred to the total receipts
of the state treasury as taxes, while $15,

there is, a ruled space for tabulating re

that a health rule has been followed for
that particular day. Fifty-four crosses in
