originally had maintained that

Is Sinking, Word;
PRINCETON, N. J., Nov.. 30.
(UP) Politics, in the Vnited
States today are rotten because
the nation has declined Into a
state of fatty defeneration since
tho war, Col. Theodore Roosevelt
declared In an address here to
night before the clinosophlc and
the American whig societies of
Princeton university. '
He named as the four out
standing evils existing the coun
try: The neglect of the farmer,
the corruption of politics, dis
regard for the ISth amendment
and Injudicious cutting of the
army and navy. He also attacked
what ho termed the modern.
American "do-nnthinR attitude."
"What wo need Is prosperity
for all, not prosperity for the
few," ho declared.
Vast pums of money are spent
by politicians at every election,
Roosevelt asserted, nnd as the
hulk ot this money Is donated by
"big business," that element
naturally looks for a return on
Us investment.
