Majority Feel That President's Guid­
ance Should Be Held— He Regards
Pact As Sure to Come Sion.
(By ML Clemens News Bureau)
Aboard President Wilson's Special
Train —From the Capital at Washing­
ton to the far Pacific coast the Presi­
dent of the United States has jour­
neyed on the most unusual exp >ditioc
erer undertaken by a chief executive
of the nation.
To discuss national questions, many
pr-sidents have toured the land; but
Mr. Wilson is laying before America
a question which affects the whole
world— the question of whether or not
we are to Join in the League of Na­
tions; whether we are to forget our
former isolation and share with the
other peoples of the ear:h the respon­
sibilities of maintaining civilisation
and preventing, as he says we can do.
future warfare.
Between the capital and .he coast
the president made fifteen speeches
and half a dozen brief talks. All of
100,000 fellow citlrm s listened to him.
Several millions had the chance to see
him. and apparently everyone wanted
to see him. from those who thronged
the streets of the cities and towns
where he stopped, to those who came
to the rallside or stood at little flag
stations in remote places, knowing
their only reward could be a fleeting
glimpse and a wave of the hand.
He has met and talked to all types
of citizens— to men big in the busi­
ness, inancial and professional worlds,
to farmers and mechanical workers,
to Indians and cowboys and foreign-
born herders and rangers, to soldiers
and to mothers who lost soldier-sons
in the late war.
What do they all tell him? unani­
mously they say they want peace
definitely settled, they want no more
wars, they want the League of Na­
tions. and most of the American peo­
ple. It may be fairly said, tell the
President they want the League just
as it is, without the reservations or
amendments which certain senators
have insisted upon. The majority of
Citizens say to those who interview
them on this tour:
"Woodrow Wilson guided us rightly
before and during the war with Ger­
many. W e entered that war. every­
one agrees, to end all wars. He says
the league can do thaL W'e want to
do that, so let us keep on trusting him
and get the league Into operation as
soon as possible, fo rget politics.”
Most Americans encountered on the
tour have forgotten politics
lican Governors and Mayors have In­
troduced the President to his audi­
ence; the Major part of the local com­
mittees which hare met him have
been Republicans. They have all said:
"W e are nothing but Americans, Mr.
Mr. Wilson’s arguments for the
league, briefly summarized, are those:
There can be no peace, either now
or in the future, without it. There
can only be a regrouping of nations
and a new "Balance of Power,” which
it certain to lead to war. There can
be no war in the future, with the
league in existence, because no single
nation would defy the united rest of
mankind, and if it did, it cculd be
biought to terms by an economic
boycott, and without, the use of arms.
There can be no reduction in the
cost of living until the league is es­
tablished, for nations will not go
ahead with peace time production un­
til they know that peace is definitely
assured and that production of war
material is no longer necessary.
Thera can be wonderful prosperity,
league In existence, for rel­
ations of labor and capital all over
the world will be made closer and
more friendly, and the worker will re­
ceive a fairer share of what he pro­
These declaration of the president,
logically and eloquently put, have left
bU hearers thinking and thinking
deeply. And then Mr. Wilson has
pointed out, the people themselves, as
differentiated from senators «Old politi­
cians, seem to want Just what the
president wants, which is America for
