Washington.—Major Benedict Crow all, Mr. Buker's former Assistant Sec retary of War, warm admirer of Pres ident Wilson, Is the latest distinguish ed man to declare in an Interview that he is In favor of the election of Hard ing and Coolidge and a Republican Congress at the polls In November. Major Crowell goes so far as to say that he is in favor of the league of nations but he prefers to take his chances on. getting the league with Senator Hard ing rather than with Governor Cox. "Now that President Wilson is re tiring from active political life," said ilajor Crowell, "It is wise for his sup porters to peuse and take stock oi* the situation. I have always favored a league of nations but the Democratic party has no monopoly on the league Indeed, the prosent Democratic admin istration has failed on this subject In spite of the fact thfit 75 per cent of the Senate wtre In favor of some kind of a league. "It seeros evident that Governor Cox to making many promises regarding the league which ha may not t» to fulfill." 4«!*-".jit SENATOR HARDING PROPOSES WELFARE POST IN CABINET Tefls 11000 Women He Favors Department in Defense of Mothers, Such a department, said Senator Harding, must "avoid (tie fearful re sults of bureaucracy. There can be no more efficient way of advancing a humanitarian program," he said, "than by adapting the machinery of our Fed eral Government to the purposes we desire to attain. While others may have their eye* tixed upon some par ticular piece of legislation or more par ticular policy of social Justice which calls for the sympathetic Interest of us all, I say, without hesitation, that our primary consideration must be the machinery of administration, and that when the time conies for us to re organise our administrative govern ment in Washington we must all stand together for the creation of a Depart ment of Public Welfare. "I pledge myself today," he said, "to support with all that Is in me whatever practical policy of social welfare and social Justice can be brought forward ly the combined wisdom of all Ameri cans. Nothing can concern America, and nothing can concern me as an American, more deeply than the health, the happiness and the enlight enment of every fellow American. Must Avoid Paternalism. "The social Justice that I concel** to not paternalism. It would be easy to make It so, and dangerous Indeed to the best spirit that Americans can have—the spirit of expressing by the Individual free will one's own merits, capacity and worth. We do not want government to suppress that expres sion of free will, even by benevolence, but we do mean to preserve In Ameri ca an equal opportunity and a pre paredness for self-expression therein, even though we use the government? to do it. "I believe that there Is no step more practical, no step which will mean more to the growth of America's so cial welfare no step which will guar antee better America's social justice, than one which I propose to you. Dangers to Be Avoided. MI have no doubt that there will be •ome who will find in this proposal cause for calling me an extremist, but when we have a task to do, which has been dictated by our conscience and approved by our wisdom, let us straightway And the way to do It I do net say this without a word of caution. I recognize certain dangers which are always presented when gov ernment undertakes large and detailed tasks." Tasks ef Social Justice. Senator Harding pointed ojuf the necessity of going forward upon a sure footing and declared: "When making the proposal for department ef public welfare to America, I am aware that I have made a step in advance of any platform. "We all know that we face tasks of social Justice, which we must under take with dispatch and efficiency. Who can suggest one of these tasks which can supersede in our hearts, or in the rank wMch foresight and wisdom will give that of the protection of our ma ternity? "The protection of the motherhood of America can not be accomplished until the state and the nation have en acted and, by their example, have en forced customs, which protect wom anhood Itself. I know full well that there are women who Insist that wom en shall be treated upon the same busis that men are treated." Senator Harding discussed the need of adequate protection for women in industry and expressed his belief In the wisdom of an eight-hour day for women workers. He emphasized the need of safeguarding the women on American farms. He proposed putting the Children's Bureau under the sug gested Department of Public Welfare, arid urged prevention of abuses of child labor. MI able Senator Herding, observation leads us to believe, has created a strong Impression of earnestness, sincerity and high sense of duty. His utter ances are marked by a studied mod eration he exhibits no arrogance of opinion, and has made no extrava gant promises of a millennium to be created by pro-tarnation he seeks (rather to express the national spirit than to Impose a doctrine of political Infallibility.

I refer to the enforcement of law. It will not be my business when elected to decide what laws shall be. It will be legitimate for uoe to Invoke public opinion for their enactment, but such a call to public opinion must he based more upon the duty of the Executive of the nation to give facts to the peo ple than upon his desire to g}ve opin ion, theory and propaganda.

WHAT THE FORD CAR DID. William Williamson, who Is Judge tof the Eleventh circuit, presides over more territory than aay other circuit Judge In the state. Many of his coun ty. seats are not reached by railroads. So at the start he drove a Ford over prairie roads and over prairie where there were no roads. One day the thing kicked and broke his right arm. That put him out of oommission for awhile but he buckled down to his Ford and learned to ©rank it with his left hand. Then whan his right arm grew strong he went to craaking his Ford with it again. Then there came another day. The machine klokad, and broke the Jufige's arm over again. So he driven a self starter now as he makes his way over western South Dakota In the interests of his cam paign as the republican candidate for tongress. Don't forget the silk sale at M. Williams.
