Has Some! 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
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

Marion. 0., Aug. IS. Senator Hard
ing was the invited guest of the Lum
bermen's association of the Marion dis
trict at a picnic held to-day in a park
on the outskirts of the city. It was ex
pected that late in the afternoon he
would deliver a brief address, touclring
in a general way on campaign Umics.
Most of the morning the nominee
spent working on the address which he
will dejiver to-morrow to a front porch
delegation made up of members and
former members of the Ohio legisla
ture. This speech, it had been indicat
ed at Harding headquarters, will be
one of the most important he has deliv
ered this far in the campaign.
A feature of the day was a call on
the senator by a group of members of
the Society of American Indian,, an
organization founded sevesal year ago
at Ohio State university for the pro
motion of the interests of the Indian
race. '
To-morrow' speech to the Ohio leg
islature delegation probably will be the
nominee's lasl during the present week.
