universal military .training. He ad
vocated the ownership by the public

mentioned for the ownership of the
people were railways, telegraph lines,
long distance telephone lines, mer
chant marine and cables. He also ad
vocated the ownership of a great pa
per or bulletin by the government
which be said should be edited by a
representative of the President and
two other men, one selected by the
majority party In Congress and the
other selected by the minority party
He had a number of unique ideas in

single group in our nation, and ere so
closely Identified with every form of
progress and with the development of
every phase of our civilization tbt
they are vitally interested In all the
problems of government. Both as a
matter of self-protection and for the
promotion of the public good they
must have a part in the solving of
the problems that have arisen out of.
or have been made ripe for action by
the war. I beg to submit for the
consideration of this national gath
ering of fanners a few of these prob

"As prohibition will within a few
weeks bcome a settled policy of the
country by the ratification of the na

"There should be a permanent na

men, one select. - majority and one

the President. Bulletin to present
important things done by Congress
and important things done by the ad
ministration. Editorial space to be
divided among parties in Congress in
proportion to vote In Congress, each
party to name its own editoria' writ

monthly between the campaigns and
weekly during campaigns, and should
be furnished at not more than cost to
such voters as desire it.
"Universal military training will
not be necessary if the peace is built
according to the plan announced by
the President and Lloyd George,
namely: upon a plan that initiates
upon earth the reign of the Prince of
Peace. Lloyd George announced, im
mediately after the armistice was
signed, that such a peace was hoped
for and the President cabled approval
of the sentiment. A peace that would
compel greater military training than
was thought necessary before the war
would be a step backward instead of
forward. Any physical development
that might be needed tn the event of
war can be secured by compulsory ex
ercises in our schools, consistent with
the spirit of peace, without less o?
time or material Increase In expenses.
Such exercises can be stimulated by
a system of prizes extended through
the entire period of development, and
open to country-wide competition."
