n addition,' he said, "the Re
publicans have very much better
than an even chance to carry Ari
zona, Kentucky. Maryland and
New Mexico, with 27 additional
electoral votes. his makes 359
Republican electoral votes almost
certain out of the total of 531.
"The Republican victory .in
Kentucky is certain, provided the
weather is such that it is physi
cally possible for the great Repub
lican majority in the mountains of
Eastern Kentucky to get to the
polls. The same erement enters
into the result in Tennessee
where there Is a splendid chance
for the Republicans. We also
have a splendia opportunity to
carry North Carolina and Oklaho
ma. This makes the probability
of an additional 34 votes.

"The only states - Democratic
candidates are certain of:
Alabama. Arkansas, Florida,

Is for "America first is simply
waitine for the ODDortunity to
voice a protest against the
ciency, extravagance , and
racy in government and to express
Its complete confidence in tine con
structive ability of the; Republican
party, in a manner that will be
heard around the world."
Mr. White, who declared to
night he had spent the last three
days checking up detailed jreports
from all state chairmen, asserted
he saw "no reason to alter my
forecast in which I predicted cer
tain victory for! the Democratic
A ViHoiXif" America. !
Mr. White referred to a. predic
tion he made yesterday.
"Bui, in perfect fairness, I want
to say that th's will not alone be
a Democratic victory. It will be
the victory of America, a victory
over disloyalty and partisanship, a
victory over disunion and dis
honor, a victory over the counsels
of selfishness, j
"Th's nation wants to establish
and maintain world peace in con
cert with those nations which
were our allies in the struggle
against imperialism and militar
ism. It wants to extend the Mon
roe doctrine to the world. It
wants to secure peace in the east
ern hemisphere as in the western
and to spare future generations of
Americans from the necessity of
laying down lives abroad to save
mankind from military domina
"We have! won the argument for
peace. We have won. despite the
fact that a clean and fair cam
paign on our part has been con
ducted j in the face of a campaign
that bore every semblance but
fairness and cleanliness."

Salem.: It Is my. judgment that
Senator Harding and Governor
Coolidge will be elected by a ver-i
itable avalanche, and I attribute
the decided rrei'onderanee of
sentiment in faror of them to the
furl that the better thinking peo
ple of the Cniled States tee In
them presidential timber if the
first class, and that their election
with a Republican house and sen
ate to t support them, will mean
a return to constiinuonai gov
ernment, a firm and diKiiitlAd
foreign policy in keeping with
that of Washington. Jefferson
and Monroe, a restoration of sta
ble industrial foundations, arnd
a reconstruction policy which will

of the past eight years, sever! the
accumulations of burdens that
have attached themselves to i the

tablish a just protective tariff for
the benefit of American labor 'and
business, and that ' American can
again look to Harding as their
president with the same confi
dence and assurance that they at
one time, turned to McKinley and
Roosevelt and were proud to
claim the United States as Uhe
land of their nativity or of iheir
adoption. The people are Ured
of .subterfuge and deception.! of

wherein some individual made a

prevailed during Republican con
trol, as against the extravagant
waste which has prevailed during
the past few years of control by
the opposition party. It soes
without saying that in order to 1
have a harmonious administration j
the two branches of congress
should be of the same political
faith as the executive, and it is
therefore very necessary that our
state Bhould elect a Republican
senator and congressman In orW
that the hands of the executive
may not be tied. Vote right.
