ded that the "fundamental remedy
was provided, as it always must be
provided, not so much through en
actment of legislative . laws, as
through the working out of eco
nomic jlaws." Because of this, he
said, price fixing by legislation
must be evaded. . ..

Overtaxing Schemes Scoute!.
Denouncing as short sighted the
plea of "demagogues" for aver
taxing the rich, Mr. Coolidge de-i
manded a further cut in surtax;
rates applying on high incomes.
"I want further tax reduction
and more tax reform," he said. "I
am not "disturbed about the effect
on 'a ."few thousand people with
large Incomes, because they have
to paj high surtaxes. What
concerns me is the indirect effect
of high surtaxes on all the rest
of thej people. Let us always re

In foreign affairs, Mr. Cool
idge described the administration
as seeking only peace through ef
forts by the Dawes Commission in
settling the reparations problem,
establishment of many treaties
and seeking entrance in the per
manent Court of International
Justice. He called attention to the
refusal of ratification of the
League bf Nations covenant but
recalled cooperation, by the gov
ernment with the League in sup
pressing I the narcotic trade and
promoting public health. .
"We have every desire to help,"
he added, "but the time, the place,
and the j method must be left to
our determination. Under our con
stitution we cannot foreclose the
right of the president or the con
gress to determine our future pror
blems when they arise."
Recalling the disclosures in con
nection with the naval oil reserve
leases, Mr. Coolindge reiterated
his determination to "use every
possible effort to resist corruption
in office." , j
Government Must Ite Clean, j
"The ' American government
must be clean." he said, "the laws
of the land are. being, and will
continue to be, enforced. The
government is sound. Individuals
charged with wrongdoing are be
ing prosecuted. Th.e people of this
country : hate corruption. They
know my position. They know
the ;law will be enforced." -
Mr. Coolindge served notice on
the party to live witbin its means
during the present campaign and
to cooperate with the senate com
mittee in detailing the lists of its
expenditures. " . "
He also plainly told the party
that "no individual or group of
individuals may expec any gov
ernmental favors in return for
party assistance. .
Taking up only briefly the ques
tion of national defense, tfre presi
dent declared he favored "not
merely talking about it but doing
something about it."
In a recital of the government's
accomplishments since March 4,
1924, Mr. Coolidge mentioned the
Arms conference, the restoration
of "a technical state of peace, the
negotiation of -treaties with many
countries, repeal of wartime taxes,
funding of a large jart of the for
eign debt, improvement in employ
ment conditions, enhancement of
the prices of government bonds,
reduction of the cost of govern
ment, establishment of the budget,
immigration reform, reduction of
thej army and navy to a "low
peace time basis." conversion of
war materials and supplies into
cash, increase in wages, a revival
of industry, establishment of the
veterans bureau, enactment of
"generous" laws for the relief of
disabled veterans and establish
ment of a tariff act. I
Touching on the new immigra
tion law, Mr. Coolidge recalled his
preference for a clause on Japan
ese exclusion which would be 'less
likely, to offend the sensibilities 6f
the Japanese people" but empha
sized that the law has been passed
and approved -and "the incident is

he concluded, "It is well for the
country to have: liberality in
thought and progress in "action,
but- its greatest asset is common
sense. I In- the commonplace
things of life lies the strength of
the najtion. It is not in brilliant
conceptions and strokes of genius
that we shall' find the chief re
liance of our country, but in the
home, in the school, and in reli
gion. America will continue to

force hat seeks to desecrate or
destroy them: will find that a
higher power has endowed the
people with an inherent spirit of
resistance. The people know the
difference between pretense and
reality They jvant to be told
