resentful of her aloofness, her prestige abroad is shattered,
and faith in her near the vanishing point. The policy of!
seltish isolation, of denying a helping hand to shattered
Europe, of refusing to ccoperte to establish peace, is not
one the nation can be proud of in future years.
We celebrate today the triumph of a great cause in war.
We do not celebrate the failure of that same cause in peace..
The faith of America in America, however, leads us to hope
that ere another Armistice day rolls around, America,
emerged from the dismal swamp of politics, recovered from
the reaction of war, will be found cooperating with her sister
nations to preserve the peace of the world and that we can
celebrate the complete victory of the cause for which our
boys made the supreme sacrifice in France with America a

David Lawrence, the Washington correspondent declares
that President-elect Harding has indicated his choice for
cabinet officers as follows : Secretary of State, Philander C.
Knox of Pennsylvania; secretary of treasury, Governor
Frank 0. Lowden of Illinois; attorney general, Harry
Daugherty of Ohio; secretary of war, General John J. Persh
ing: secretary of the navy, former Senator John W. Weeks
of Massachusetts ; secretary of agriculture, Henry Wallace of
Iowa; secretary of labor, either Representative Nolan ef
California or -John F. Burke of Pennsylvania; post-master
general, Will H. Hays of Indiana; secretary of commerce,
former Governor Stokes of New Jersey, or Albert D. Lasker

Fall of New Mexico or former Senator Sutherland of Utah.
These selections are said to be Harding's first choice and
likely to win appointment, although of course the list is sub
ject to revision. Some of them are certain to be found in the
The list is notable for the elimination of Root, Taft,
Hughes, Lodge and Hoover, and all members of the progres

Harding's foreign policies. Taft and Hughes will likely be

Ihe cabinet, as announced, is safely reactionary. Knox, '
representing the steel interest, is opposed to the League of
Nations and author of the resolution for a seperate peace
with Germany as well as father of "dollar" diplomacy.
Daugherty, Harding's manager, is a professional politician
and lobbyist for big business: the selection of Lowden
