Dashes Off Verses and Such with His Little Paint Brush BROOKHART GIVEN ONLY 2 YEARS TO RUN COURSE Most Oldline Republicans Are Renominated, but Vote in November Decisive. By MARK j -Washington, D. C., July We are now close to the middle j of the current political year. Eleven states have held their pri- maries; and these eleven states are BO widely distributed geographi- so diverse in their- eco- nomic-interests and political tem- peraments, that it ought to be pos- sible to make some generalizations 1 about the present political temper; of the country. i It ought to be possible, but it isn't. Many things are happening i and some of them' are strange, but they have little relation to each other. Later on, this, article will attempt to make some reflections i on what is happening, but those reflections will not be in the nature of generalizations. What most im- presses the present writer is the looseness and inexactness of most of the generalizations that are commonly made. Pour Results Not'Similar. The most frequent of the gen- eralizations commonly made on the results of the primaries is one which lumps the victories of Bey- eridge in Indiana, of. .Pinchot.-. in. Brookharf'in Iowa and of'Crazier over McCumber in North: if they were similar. This is a mis- take. It is true there was some similarity between the victories of Pinchot and Beveridge, but the vic- 'tdry of Brookhart in Iowa had no relation whatever to the other two. Brookhart. when he comes to the] senate, will be no more like Bev-j eridge than he will be like Wads- worth of New York, or like Pepper of. Pennsylvania.

Beveridge, when he conies to the senate, assuming that wins the election in November, will come 'close to being representative of the bulk of the Republican party as it is likely to be in the future. It will not be the old standpat Re- publicanism of 10 or 20 years ago. It will be as far from the Republi- canism of Cannon and Lenroot as the times have moved during that period. At the same time it most decidedly will not be the Republi- canism of radicals like LaFollette. The Republicanism of which Bev- eridge will be the spokesman will not be the Republicanism of Ford- ney: which looks upon an extreme high tariff as a simple talisman capable of accomplishing all possi- ble good. Beveridge's Republican- ism will be one that will take ac- count of the changes in the coun- try's business structure and in its relation to the rest of the world, note to Mrs A. L.
