L rpHa presidential campaign draws to close. What had threatened
to be a republican, rout now gives some strong indication of re

Abraham Lincoln to all appear

from the fight an overwhelming

"Mid-October, 1922 Herbert
Hoover sits in the White House
facing an uncertain election. His
problems have equaled those of
Abraham Lincoln. The financial
and economie cataclysm which, as
the aftermath of the great war,
has swept Europe, America and
tho rest of tho world nearly re
sulted in general chaos. We and
other nations have stood on the
brink of the greatest catastrophe
ever known. For more than three
years the war has been waged In
America. Some mistakes were
made at the start, as in the Civil
war, but through tho leadership
of a genius wo are emerging from
Our difficulties. Tho Gettysburg
of this war haa been fought and
won, but the exhausted people do
not yet realise that fact.
