There waa a twinkle In Mr. Harding a
eyes aa he explained that a president

sometlmoa a phrase or a sentence Ut

the stylists who lately have been pick

There Was nothing plaintive about Mr.
llardtna's observation In this connection.
He gave the Impression that he ratherM
enjoyed the freedom that an editorial
writer had. saying Just what he pleased
and Mr. Harding indulged briefly In re
miniscences of the days when he waa an
editorial writer and expressed himself
with tMa utmost abandon about public
mesj and affairs.

Responsibility makes a difference and
Mr. llardlng shows it. Ha exhibited no
Impatience with his critics, but he used
the occasion with splendid tact to take
a fUag at some of the writers who have
been characterising him aa "a Main
street prealdent" with a crude literary
style. Mr. Harding Innt particularly
displeased with the reference to "Main
street.- If he were to discJose his true
feelings It would appear that Mr. Hard
ing thinks It a virtue for the American
people occasionally to select some one
for the presidency who knows the sim
plicity aitd matter of fact problems of
the common people of the United. States.
But there was Just a touch of pathos
In the president's observations on his
riitlca He gave the Impression of a
' man overwhelmed by the awful respon
sibilities of this era of economic recon
struction, a man torn by the conflicting
' emotions of an agricultural West and
1 a manufacturing Kast Inside the Repub
lican party, a man who was struggling
to mass headway against almost insur
mountable obstacle in 'the way of gov
ernment expenditure and with such a
burden on hla shoulders he- was not a
little hurt that the critics should spend
, their time worrying about Impromptu
remarks made by the president In con
f variation with reporters and later sent
broedcaat aa the matured and deliberate
utterances of a nation's chief executive.

tn this respect Harding la not unlike
Wood row Wilson, who suffered bitter
' criticism from newspapers because of
certain twists of his literary style. Wll
son used to think there were bigger
things for the critics to write about than
. hla style of expression. Harding has
found that looking at the presidency
from maids the White House dwarfs la
' Importance some of the criticisms which
are made about a nation's executive and
that while he la the last person In the
world to be sensitive about honest crit
icism, he wonders if the little carping
Innuendoes are necessary for the suc
cessful working of a democracy.
The president's little talk would have
made much more Interesting reading
than his first remarks for which per-
