Elihu Root, William H. Taft. and ott'i

Harding said today he recalled hav

ing the summer in which Root urged
that the league covenant be modified
according to the Lodge reservation
rather than thrown over entirely. To
scrap the league Root argued, would
bring chaos, and loss of the result of
the war. Harding would not comment
on the Root message, only to say that
Root Is one of those whom he expect
to call to Marion fur a conference dur.

Harding wore a broad "hayneed"
hat when he climbed into the boat
and started down the bay. There wa

Wheat displayed a rallying tenden

of the news that came forward wa
too much for the market to with
