National and Interna
tional Problems Bound
Up in success of Peace
: South Bend, Ind., Aug. 19.
National and intenational fin
ancial and economical readjust
ment, as well as the high cost
of living, are bound up in the
success of the league of nations,
Governor Cox declared today at
a large public gathering.
"With the least possible delay after
March 4, 1921. our pledge is to enter
the lague, making such additions as
ure reaasuring and helpful," .Governor
Cox said. "This will legally end the
war it will help to re-establish credits.
A call will be made upon our mineral
malth and our productive skill. . We
will have the ships to sail every sea;
the supply of life's essentials will be
equal to the demand; living; costs will
be reduced. - What we would ' other:
wise be spending for guns and powder
would be applied to our war. debt and
above all "we will be heppy in the con
sciousness that war pratcically im
possible. Reaction in Retreat.
"The opopsition offers, at the beat,
a very long delay. What project it
has as a substitute for the league of
nations, no one knows, or at least no
one has ever attempted to describe it
or to name ti. The question of the
league of nations therefore, becomes
increasingly this issue- in this cam
oaten for the very reason that it in
volves our safety, our economic re- bring about' this result, the fact re-
adjustment and our prosperity. The mains that the women won their own
Grant of Suffrage Due

Line Them with G O P
Marion, Ohio, Aug. 19. Sen
ator Harding declared today
that the grant of suffrage to
American women would be es
pecially welcome to the republi
cans in the coming campaign
because "a great moral and soci
al reform, ecently achieved is
menaced by the covert purpose
of our opponents to attack it."
He predicted that, voting women
would stand with the republican party
through- a realization that it had led
in achieving social betterment while
the democratic party "had notorious
ly refused to "enforce reform policies.
Victory Due to Women.
"American women," said , Senator
Harding, "have won the suffrage
fight. Their victory is dramatic be
cause it comes as the reward of a
great final drive that now has insured
to all American women a full partici
pation in the most crucial -national
election in many years. Tet, import
ant as are the issues in this political
contest, we may well doubt if history
will recognize any other phase of it as
equal in importance to the fact that
in this year the women of America for
the first time took their full part In
determining the national destinies:
"However much some of of us ran.
be pleased with the" congratulations
which assure us today that we helped
air. in clearing, the smoke screen of
nyprocricy thrown out by the sena
torial oligarchy has been pierced, and
every day between now and November
will witness the gradual retreat of the
forces of. reaction. There isn't enough
money in the world to stop it." '"
Reiterating his charge of "reaction'
against the republican leaders, Gov
ernor Cox added;
.-' !'If they should follow their, own
steps backward, and they are so used
to moving in that direction that they
would not need a compass, they would
find; that' every condition against
which they inveigh is of their own
creation. They discuss the high cost
f -living without apparently realizing.
that in a large measure they are re
' sponsible for the belated settling down
of condtliong which have continued
the high cost of living. :,. r
" ; Results of Delay,
"If the league of nations had been
1 ratified months ago, exchange ' would
have been stabilized. Europe could
have started its work of rehabitationj
its countries would not have made a
drain upon our food supplies. In fact
Europe would be buying the things
which we can spare. The result of
this would be self evident. War taxes
which should have been modified or
'- repealed when the war was were not
touched and the republican oligarchy
to the senate is directly responsible."
Senator Penrose of Pennsylvania,
Governor Cox declared, was Instru-
mental in preventing reduction of war
: taxes, "on the theory that the people
:. would blame the executive rather than
the congressional administration" for
failure to abolish . burdensome taxa-
tion. .... ..
Much of the national debt of all
countries. Governor Cox said, was
caused by the race in armament, add
ing: "If the world does not proceed to
arm Itself to the teeth, if the cost of
wmament is diverted to the payment
victory. Their long struggle against
many discouragements has been a
splendid preparation for the duties lm
posed on them. They will be full part
hers in shaping national programs and
policies. However they may divide
politically their moral sense, their so
cial instincts, their primary concern
for home and family and health and
education will be a constant lnspira
tion to an Insistence upon higher and
better aims In our national life.
Republican Feat Scarce.
"As to Immediate political effects,
we republicans may, and do feel se
cure. In this campaign we face issues
on which we may be confident that
the voice of womanhood ' will pro
nounce for us. Once more, the ; real
independence of our nation , is in
volved. A great moral and social re
form, recently , achieved, is menaced
by the covert purpose of our oppo
nents to attack It. Enfranchisement
of women will make nd mistake In
choosing between the republican party
which has led in every movement for
social and industrial betterment and
the democratic party, which has no
toriously refused to enforce theBe en
lightened policies in the south, where
it completely dominates. Nor will

W. C. Kilmer of Seattle, who passed
through Salem yesterday enroute
home after touring the states from
British Columbia to the south borifSF

Mr. Kilmer had visited many places
