Publicity Suggestions in Mind But He Is Against Having Professional "Preas Agents." Columbus, Ohio, Aug. 18, A confer ence on national campaign pinna with Senator Harrison of the. national speakers' bureau was the principal political affair to day before Governor Cox, the Democratic presidential can didate. Relief of Governor Cox from direc tion of details of his speaking itinerary, such as train arrangements, schedule making and other affaire, was one of the subjects to be taken up. Publicity affairsof the Democratic campaign, it was said, also were to te discussed. Governor Cox has tabooed professional "press agents" or personal "publicity directors," and it is under stood that none will be' attached to the governor's immediate personal staff. But the candidate has other pub licity suggestions in mind. Another innovation in the Cox cam paign is suggeston for-a personal aide to the governor. His advisors are urging that a big, bulky man be as signed to him if only as a human wedge for clearing paths through crowds. Governor Cox will leave here to night to fill a speaking engagement to morrow night at South Bend, Ind., be fore the Indiana Democratic Editors' association. HARDING AT PICNIC.
