Nominee Holds Lead at Half Way Mark; Next Two Months Tell. BY DATID LAWREKCE. (Special to The Argus.), Washington, Aug. 23. Nearly two of the four months of the pres idential campaign have elapsed and there is not much reason to change as yet the forecast of the probable outcome which followed npon the two national conventions. Judged by reports from all parts of the country, from Democratic as well as Republican sources, as matters stand today Senator Harding, the Republican nominee has the lead, and were the election held this week, he would win though hardly by the same margin that he might have secured when he was first nominated. In other words, the campaign of Governor Cox has made some head way. Whether it will make enough headway to overcome the Harding lead is another question, the an swer to which lies in the campaign yet to be made by both candidates and the workers in their behalf. The Democrats are biasing away as intensely as they can with a clumsy organization. The Repub licans are holding back with a smooth working machinery that can be increased in speed at any time. The Republicans say they dont think much of August drives and declare they prefer rather to rely on the drive made in October. Likened to Yacht Race. - But the race between Cox and Harding can best be described by taking as an analogy the recent yacht race between America and England. One boat was ' given seven minnptes' handicap 'in point of time so that her competitor could - c ross-ttrt'flTrMr Wne first but still not win. Senator Harding has practically a two year handieap. He has behind him all the strength of the Republican offensive which be gan with the capture of congress in the 1918 elections and has con tinued ever since. The Democrats, on the other hand, admittedly were on the defensive and depended nevertheless on their leader. Wood- row Wilson, for most of the fight ing. Unfortunately, however, as so often happens in football teams when a star player is absent from the game or injured, the rest of the team goes to pieces. President Wil son felt it necessary to go to Europe to negotiate personally with the powers of Europe and during his absence nobody was delegated to handle the defensive of the po litical fight or even to conduct an offensive. Senator Lodge and his colleagues managed continually to bombard the president and his poli cies while Mr. Wilson himself was so busy with the peace negotiations tnat he had very little time to mend fences at home even by cable or letter. Demos Just Getting Started. When the president did get back. tne Democrats were heartened con siderably for they again had a lead- er but unhappily for them Mr. Wil son suffered a nervous breakdown within three months and has been out of the political game ever since. None of the presidential candidates on the Democratic side seemed will ing to seize the reins of leadership in the absence of word from the president aa to his desire to run (Continued on Page Three).

That Premier Glolitu of Italy waited to talk with Premier Lloyd Gwrge of : Great Britain before replying to the American note relative to withhold ing recognition from soviet Russia is pointed out as significant by a, Lucerne dispatch to the London Times. Premier Glolltti, the dispatch says, is in full agreement with President Wilson as to the mainte nance' of Polish independence, but has given Italian Socialists a pledge that he will grant recognition to the soviet government There is reason to believe, the dispatch adds, that Mr. Lloyd George ap proves the Italian position.
