SOUTH CA IFORNIA t FOR LEAGUE, SAYS DAVID LAWRENGE Expert Declares State," Nor mally Republican, May Fur nish Another Surprise I Johnson Upsets Situation. BV DAVID LAWRENCE. (Special Correspondent of tho New 22. Scimitar.) 8AKTA BARBARA. Cal.. Sept. California furnished a surprise four yea.ro afro. It- may furnish another thla ' year If Senator Johnson chooses to up set a situation which today looks like a majority on at least 100,000 for Sena tor Hardin. To understand the mtxup It must first be stated that normally South , ern California furnishes the heavy Re publican vote to overcame the Demo cratlc strength In San Francisco and i onnern (jaiirornia. But this year Northern California, es pecially with its Irish vote in San Franalsco, has listened to the argu ments of Hiram Johnson and a presa friendly to his viewpoint on the league of nations, while Southern California has been strongly In favor of the league. . and the majority of the newspapers of miiuence nave taxen mat altitude. Thus Senator, Johnson, who has always been popular in Southern.Cali ' fornla, lost it decisively, to Herbert Hoover in the May primaries because Southern California is for the leaa-u When Rnnntni. Hn rA i n rr warn nnml. 1 nated Southern California was disap pointed. It wanted Hoover. When Sen ator Harding first announced his views on me league and men like Tart am Hoover expressed themselves as satis fled, the friends Of the learue of tin tlons in Los Angeles and vicinity also were sacisnea. wnen senator Hardin began to show signs of accepting Sen ator Johnson's Ideas on the league ques tlon, an undercurrent of dlssatiofac tion developed but the-Bepubllcan news papers accepted the situation with evi dences of discomfort and restlveness, They are ' for the time beine sub- merging the issue, but are hopeful that Senator Hardin? will vet take a mnrn sympathetic attitude toward the league. All would be well if the situation ran on without the raising of new causes ior controversy insiae tne republican - Senator Johnson's Attitude. But Senator (Johnson Is not disposed io let weu enouen aione. Hiitner ne De lleves that Southern California can be converted to his viewpoint on the league ur iiw oiuuertMjr puuevea ne snouia cam paign throughout California and drive home the - interpretations of Senator iiiiiui8B jniBiuuu wnion ne nimseii holds. . Anyway, they say they do not want senator jonnson to speak In Southern California. . Somehodvnmniniii a ma.t. ing for Los Angeles next Saturday night w iwiun uiv ui uuv. jox. remaps it was the Instruction of the Republican national committee or perhaps Senator Johnson was permitted to speak where he pleased in California. But the truth is the Republicans in mis vicinity nave appealed to the Re publican national committee to keep lumiHun uui oi oouLnern uaiiiornia. El mer juover, regional director on the facuio coast tor tne Republican na tional committee, has been in I jnn An geles "the last few days checking up on the situation, and it is understood that he has advised Will Hays it might uti more uiscreec io &8K senator John son not to SDeak about the lemma in Los Angeles, or better yet, not to cornel Into the section at all. V TlnvAP has hoan 1 l .l,n ,li , now stand the situation from a Repub lican viewpoint is excellent and that, If we league issue aoes not drive Re publicans into a war inside h the majority In Southern California wlli ue upward 01 zuu.uuu. Johnson's Coming Besented. Many staunch league supporters re sent Johnson's coming, and, If he at. tacks the league, there is almost cer. tain to be a mass meeting by friends of the league as an answering dem onstration. 7 This is exactly what tha rr.n.. velt supporters would like to see hap pen, for anything that disturbs a serene miuauon win Denent ' the Democrats, whose candidate Is outspokenly for the league and has latelv said ha .,i,i ajceept any compromise reservation that in. Km ue agreea upon in the senate. Some Republicans of prominence told the writer they would not dare to pre diet what would happen in California If Senator Johnson aroused the voters oi uie souinern part of the slate on the league Issue. It seems hardly pos sible for Gov. Cox to acquire enough strength to carry Southern California, but, if he cuts down the expected large majority which Los Angeles might oth erwise give Harding, and if the con tinued effect of Cox's speeches in San Francisco Is to regain the Democratic vote In Northern California, the state might yet turn another somersault. It was tho Hughes visit to Los An- Koies wnicn started a feud and gave 'the state to Wilson in 1916. The1 Is sue then was progressivlsm. Southern vuiuiiii wu soiiaiy oenina Johnson ana resented Hughes' attitude toward their hero. This time the issue is the league of nations and Southern Call hajshown by its primary vote ib uieagrees wun jonnson.
