Calls Taft's Statement Foolish.
Cleveland, Ohio. Oct. 31. Relatives
and close associates of Rockefeller
declare today that the announcement
of his support of Taft Is the logical
outcome of his statements last fall.
"It is foolish to suppose that Rock
efeller made the announcement for
the purpose of hurting Taft," said W.
C. Rndd, Rockefeller's brother-in-law.
"Rockefeller announced early in the
campaign that he favored Taft, and
his support Is merely that of a party
man and a citizen. The statement
that it was given in return for im
munity Is equally foolish.'
