aint in his vocabulary not only is slanderous but ridic ulous True he did express some anxiety lest prejudice and ignorance lead a great many voters to blame the ad ministration for slack business a measure of unemployment and even for 1930s prolonged which as he views the agricultural situation furnishes the farmers with their only Just ground for pres ent complaint Accordingly he counseled a cam paign of education to convince the electorate that insofar as the times may appear more or less out joint it is not our ing the republican partys SUCH really legitimate objection as has been

in His Press Statement WASHINGTON Aug 19 The battle for control of con gress was on in earnest today with leading spokesmen of the republican and democratic parties recording their views of the general issues on which the contest is to be decided at the November elections Jouett Shouse chairman of the democratic national executive com mittee placed the democratic side before the country in a
