Whether or not decisions reached at that meeting wlli be made public has not been announced, although the gov- ernor's consistent reply to questions about his campaign has been that he could not say anything until after the Wednesday conference. Wants 8-Week Campaign Despite the reticence of the gover- nor. it has been learned that he will suggest to the committee an eight weeka campaign, during which he will deliver not more' than two speeches in any one week. He will tell them that he wants the speeches given at strate- Slc points about the country and that they should all be broadcast on a na- tional radio hookup. Each speech will be different, but all will deal with. matters close to the Interests of the 'common little emphasla being aid on foreign relations or matters of complicated finance. If the national committee should by any chance believe that the campaign should contlmie the charges which filled the keynote speech at the con- vention, charges of "pillage and priv- lege" against the Republicans, it is cndwn that the governor will oppose hem and insist on what his support- ers have called "constructive states- manship." He -believes that a candidate can best sell his own goods by telling how good they are Instead of how bad he hinks those of a competitor are. W. C.T.U.
