The text of President Wilson's ap
peal for the league follows:
My Fellow Countrymen The Issues
of the present campaign are of such
tremendous importance rfnd of uch far
reaching significance for the Influence
of country and the development of its

think it natural and proper that
should address to you a few words con
cernng them.

joice at the turn affairs have taken r
regard to this campaign. This elec
tion is to be a genuine national refer

The determination of a great policy
upon which the influence ana autnor-
Vy of the United States in the world
must depend is not to be left to groups
of politicians of either party, but is to
he referred to the people themselves
for a sovereign mandate to their rep
resentatives. Th chief question that is put to you,
is, of course, this:
Do you want your country's honor
vindicated and the treaty of Versailles
ratified ?
Do you in particular approve of the
League of Nations as organised and
empowered in that treaty?
And do you wish to see the United
Sta.es play its responsible part in it?
You have been grossly misled with ;
regard to the treaty and particularly 1
with the proposed character of the
League of Nations by those who have
assumed the serious responsibility of
opposing it.
