The governor s declaration that there is no g. It. P. Winner in sight immediately suggested the possibility of William Howard Taft because of Philipp s known Persona Friendship for the sex president but this opinion receded a analysis of i description of the a Ideal Many proceeded. Briefly governor Philipp believes the successful candidate must be a Leader a Man who can command the Confidence of the people one of exceptional business ability an organizer and one who tosses or a Clear understanding of our foreign relations. Hoovers wonderful work in administering Relief to Europe during the War is the Hest testimonial of his ability both As a business Man and a an organizer and his affiliation with european countries doubtless i a equip my him with an unusually intimate understanding of foreign relation.

Political analyst see in Magnus Swenson the pos Mihle connecting link Between Hoover and Philip. Benson during the War. A chairman of the Wisconsin Council of defense and head of the Federal food administration in wisc on. In the latter work he became intimate with Hoover and i methods. That this affiliation resulted in Mutual understanding and appreciation a evidenced later in the selection of Benson. By Hoover soon after the War to administer american Relief to Tho countries of Northern Europe. Wennon has returned to Wisconsin and is. As heretofore close to governor Philipp that Hoover in the ranks of the republicans the last vestige of Hope for a democratic Victory will be gone is the opinion of others. They Point out that the new Republic perhaps the nation s most Radical Magazine together with the new Yolk world Organ of the la Democrat la party both have de cared then Elva for Hoover for president regardless of the party proposing Lim.
