The former president dealt at length
eulogizing the constitution of the
United States, declaring that "our
constitution, as construed by the u
preme court of the United States, Is
a wonderful instrument."
"It is not the constitution," he said,
"that Is the object of attack so much
as it is the economic conditions that
It supports, or that Is the capitalistic
system. And as this system Is entirely
necessary to the conduct of the na
tion, and to our happiness, we might
as well meet this attack and challenge
it in the teeth, for It Is based on self

of the people and the responsibility
or the Individual and the equality of
opportunity that these things offer.
