"Marlon, Ohio (Special) July 22. 'Warren G. Harding was officially no tified here of his nomination as the Re publican candidate for the Presidency. His speech-of acceptance Is, in, part, as follows : Chairman Lodge, members of noti fication committee, members of na tional committee, ladles and gentle imen: The message which you have formally conveyed brings to me a real ization of responsibility which la not underestimated. It Is a supreme task; to Interpret the covenant of a great ;polItJcal party, the activities of which are so woven into the history of this -public, and a very sacred and solemn undertaking to utter the faith and as pirations of the many millions who ad--hare to that party. The party plat form has charred the way, yet, some-' -bow, we have come to expect that In terpretation which voices the faith of nominees who must assume specific tasks. Let me be understood clearly from the very beginning. I believe In 3arty sponsorship In government. I be lieve In party government as dis tinguished from personal government, individual dictatorial, autocratic or -what not. A ' Mo man Is big enough to run this yreat republic. There never has been one. Such domination was never In tended. Tranquillity, stability, depend ability all are assured In party spon sorship, and we mean to renew the as surances which were rended in the cataclysmal war. Our first committal Is the restora tion or representative popular govern ment, under the constitution, through the agency of the Republican party. Oar vision Includes more than a chief executive, we believe In a cabinet of highest capacity, equal to the respon sibilities which our system contem plates, in whose councils the Vice President, second official of the repub lic shall bo asked to participate. The same vision includes a cordial under standing and, co-ordinated activities with a house of Congress, fresh from the people, voicing the convictions which members being from direct con tact with the electorate, and cordial operation along with the restored func tions of the Senate, fitted to be the greatest deliberative body In the world. It is not difficult, Chairman Lodge, to make ourselves clear on the question of international relationship. We Re publicans of the Senate, conscious of our solemn oaths and mindful of our institutional obligation when we saw the structure of a world super govern ment taking visionary form Joined in a becoming warning of our devotion to this republic. 'If the torch of consti tutionalism had not been dimmed, the delayed peace of the world and the tragedy of disappointment and Eu rope's misunderstanding of America easily might have been avoided. The Republicans of the Senate halted the barter of independent American emi nence and Influence, which It was pro posed to exchange for an obscure and unequal place in the merged govern ment of the world. Our party means to hold the heritage of American na tionality unimpaired and unsurrend ered. The world will not misconstrue. We do not mean to hold aloof; we do not mean to shun a single responsibility of this republic to world civilization. There is no hate In the American heart We have no onvy, no suspicion, bo aversion for any people In the world. We hold to our rights and mean to defend, aye, we mean to sus tain the rights of this nation and our( citizens alike, everywhere under the shining sun. Yet there Is the concord W amity and sympathy and fraternity la every resolution. There Is a genu ine aspiration In every American breast for a tranqnll friendship with all the world. One may readily sense the conscienee of our America. I am sure I under stand the purpose of the dominant group of the Senate. We were not seeking to defeat a world aspiration, wewere resolved to safeguard Amer ica. We were resolved then, even as we are today and will be tomorrow, to preserve this free and Independent re public. ' In the call of the conscience of America Is peace, peace that closes the gaping wound of world war, and si lences the Impassioned voices of Inter national envy and distrust. Heeding this call and knowing as I do the dis position of the Congress, I promise you formal and effective peace so quickly as a Republican Congress can pass its declaration for a Republican execu tive to sign. It is better to be the free and disin terested agent of international Justice and advancing civilization with the covenant of conscience, than be shack led by a written compact which sur renders our freedom of action and gives to a military alliance the right to proclaim America's duty to the world. No surrender of rights to a world council or Its military alliance, no assumed mandatory however ap pealing, ever shall summon the sons of this republic to war. Their supreme sacrifice shall only be asked for Amer ica and its call of honor. There Is a sanctity In that right we will not del egate. Disposed as we are, the way Is very simple. Let the failure attending as sumption, obstinacy, Impracticability and delay be recognized and let us find the big, practical, unselfish way to do our part, neither covetous because of ambition nor hesitant through fear, but ready to serve ourselves, humanity and God. With a Senate advising as the constitution contemplates, I would hopefully approach the natione of Eu rope and of the earth, proposing that understanding which makes us a will ing participant In the consecration of nations to a new relationship to com mit the moral forces of the world, America Included, to peace and Inter national Justice, still leaving America free, Independent and self reliant, but offering friendship to all the world. It Is folly to close our eyes to out standing facts. Humanity Is restive, much of the world Is In revolution, the agents of discord and destruction have wrought their tragedy In pathetic Rus- KJPiBBBSBBnaSBaBia! XT . v JsSSsE&fiSMSSl jSBBBek -y aSJBSHf gBSSSSSk sla, have lighted their torches among other peoples, and hope to see America as a part of the great red conflagra tion. Ours Is the temple of liberty un der the law, and It Is ours to call the sons of opportunity to Its defense. America must not only save herself, but ours must be the appealing voice to sober the world. It must be understood that toll alone makes for accomplishment and ad vancement, and righteous possession" is the reward of toll and Its incentive!. There Is no progress except in the stimulus of competition. The chief trouble today Is that the World War wrought the destruction of healthful competition, left our store houses empty, and there is a minimum production when our need Is maximum. Muxlmums, not miniraums, is the call of America. It Isn't a new story, be cause war never falls to leave deplet ed storehouses and always Impairs the efficiency of production. War also es tablishes Its higher standards for wnges, and they abide. I wish the higher wage to abide, on one explicit condition that the wage earner will give full return for the wages re ceived. I want, somehow, to appeal to the sons and daughters of the republic, to every producer, to join hand and brain In production, more production, honest production, patriotic production, be cause patriotic production is no less a defense of our best civilization than that of armed force. Profiteering' is a i crime of commission, under production Is a crime of omission. We must work our most and best, else the destructive reaction will come. The menacing tendency of the pres ent day is not chargeable wholly to the unsettled and chaotic conditions caused by the war. The manifest weakness In popular government lies in the tempta tion to appeal to grouped citizenship for political advantage. It would be (the blindness of folly to ignore to the activities In our own country which are aimed to destroy our economic sys tem, and to commit us to the colossal tragedy which has destroyed all free dom and made Russia Impotent This movement Is not to be halted In throt tled liberties. We must not abridge the freedom of speech, the freedom of press, or the freedom of assembly, because there Is no promise In re pression. These liberties are as sacred as the freedom of religious belief, as inviolable as the rl;:hts of 'life and the pursuit of happiness. We hold to the right to crush sedition, to stifle a men acing contempt for law, to stamp out a peril to the safety of the republic or lta people when emergency calls, be cause Fecurlty nnd the majesty of the law arS the1 first essentials of liberty. Ha who threatens destruction of the government by force or flaunts his contempt, for lawful authority ceases to be ; loyal citizen and forfeits his rights to the freedom of the republic. No party ! Indifferent to the wefe fare of the wage-earner. To us his Igood fortune Is of deepest concern, and we seek to make that good for tune permanent. We do not oppose, but approve, collective bargaining, be cause that is an outstanding right, but we art unalterably Insistent that Its exercise must not destroy the equally sacred right of the individual in hi necessary pursuit of livelihood. Any American has the right to quit his em ployment; so has every American the right to seek employment. The group must not endanger the Individual and we must discourage groups preying upon one another, and none shall be allowed to forget that the govern ment's obligations are alike to all the people. We are so confident that much of the present-day insufficiency and In efficiency of transportation are due to the withering hand of government op eration that we emphasize anew our opposition to government ownership We want to expedite the reparation and make sure the mistake is not re peated. A state of inadequate transporta tion facilities, mainly chargeable to the failure of governmental experi ment Is losing millions to agriculture; It Is hindering Industry; It Is menac ing the American people with a fuel shortage little less than a peril. It emphasizes the present-day problem and suggests that spirit of encourage ment and assistance which commits all America to relieve such an emergency. Gross expansion of currency and credit have depreciated the dollar Just as expansion and inflation have dis credited the coins of the world. We Inflated In haste; we must deflate in dellberatldn. We debased the dollar In reckless finance; we must restore In honesty. In all sincerity we promise the pre vention of unreasonable profits ; we challenge profiteering with all the moral foree and the legal powers of government and people, but It Is fair aye. It Is timely to give reminder that law Is not the sole corrective of our economic ills. Let us call to all the people for thrift and economy, for denial and sac rifice If need be, for simplicity of liv ing to that prudent and normal plan of life which is the health of the re public. New conditions which attend amaz ing growth and extraordinary Indus trial development call for a new and forward-looking program. The American farmer had a hun dred and twenty millions to feed In the home market, and heard the cry of the world for food and answered It, though he faced an appalling task amid handi caps never encountered before. Contemplating the defenselessness of the Individual farmer to meet the organized buyers of his products and the distributors of the things the farmer buys, I hold that farmers should not only be permitted but encouraged to join In co-operative association to reap the just measure of reward merited by their arduous toll. Our platform Is an earnest pledge of renewed concern for this most es sential and elemental Industry and In both appreciation and Interest we plejjge effective expression In law and practice. We will hail that co-operation which again will nuike profitable and desirable the ownership and operation of comparatively small farms inten sively cultivated and which will facili tate the caring for the products of farm and orchard without the lament able waste under present conditions. America would look with anxiety on the discouragement of farming act ivity either through the government's neglect or Its paralysis by Socialistic practices. A Republican administra tion will be committed to renewed re gard for agriculture and seek the par ticipation of farmers in curing the Ills justly complained of and aim to place the American farm where It ought to be, highly ranked In American activi ties and fully sharing the highest good fortunes of American life. Becomingly associated with this sub ject are the policies of irrigation and reclamation so essential to agricultural expansion and the continued develop ment of the great and wonderful west. It is our purpose to continue and en large federal aid not In sectional par tiality but for the good of all America. I believe the budget system will ef fect n necessary helpful reformation and reveal business methods to govern ment business. I believe Federal Departments should be made more business-like and send back to productive effort thou sands of federal employes who are either duplicating work or not essen tial at all. I believe In the protective tariff policy and know we will be calling for Its saving Americanism again. I believe In a great Merchant Mar ine. I would have this republic the leading maritime nation of the world. I believe In a navy ample to protect it and able to assure us dependable de fense. I believe In a small army, but the best In the world, worth a mind fulness for preparedness which will avoid the unutterable cost of our pre vious neglect. I believe in our eminence In trade abroad, which the government should, aid in expanding, both in revealing, markets and speeding cargoes. I be lieve In establishing standards for lm-S migration, which are concerned with the future citizenship of the republic, not with mere man-power In industry. I believe that every man who dons the garb of American citizenship and walks on the light of American op portunity, must become American In heart and soul. I believe In holding fast to .every forward step in unshackling child labor and elevating conditions of woman's employment I believe the Federal Government should stamp out lynching and remove that stain from the fair name of America. I believe the Federal Government should give its effective aid In solving the problem of ample and becoming housing of Its citizenship. I believe this government should make Its Liberty and Victory Bonds worth all that its patriotic citizens paid in purchasing them. I believe the tax burden Imposed for the war emergency must be revised to the needs of peace and In the Interest of Iniquity in distribution of the burden. I believe the negro citizens of Amer ica should be guaranteed the enjoy ment of all their rights that they ) r 8ALIENT POINTS IN r SPEECH OF ACCEPTANCE "I pledge fidelity to our country and God, and accept the nomination of the Repup- lican party for the presidency of the United States.

I believe there Is an easy and open path to righteous relationship with Mexico. It has seemed to me that our undevel oped, uncertain and Infirm policy has made us a culpable party to the gov ernmental 'misfortunes In that land. Our relations ought to be both friendly and sympathetic. We would like to ac claim a stable government there and offer a neighborly hand In pointing out the way to greater progress. I believe In law enforcement. If elected I mean to be a constitutional President, and it is impossible to Ignore the constitution, unthinkable to evade the law, when our every committal Is to orderly gov ernment. , A The four million defenders on land and sea were worthy of the best tra ditions of a people never warlike in peace and never pacifist In war. They commanded our pride, they have our gratitude which must have genuine ex pression. It is not only a duty, it Is a privilege to see that the sacrifices made shall be requited and that those still suffering from casualties nnd dis abilities shall be abundantly aided and restored to the highest capabilities of citizenship and Its enjoyment.

Insofar as Congress can go the fact is already accomplished by party edict, by my recorded vote, by personal conviction I am committed to this measure of justice. It Is my earn est hope, my sincere desire that the one needed state vote be quickly re corded In the affirmation of the right of equal suffrage and that the vote of every citizen shall be cast (and counted In the approaching election. And to the great number of noble women who have opposed in conviction this tremendous change in the ancient relation of the sexes as applied to gov ernment I venture to plead that they will accept the full responsibility of enlarged citizenship and give to the best in the republic their suffrage and support. Ours Is not only a fortunate people but a very common sense peo ple with vision high, but their feet on the earth, with belief in themselves and faith In God.
