was to deliver an address at 8 oclock Iowa time Monday night Governor Landon declared statements of President Roose velt in his farm address at Omaha Saturday night were more calculated to deceive than to The address will be found on page 2 liberalism The creation of the greatest and most expensive bu reaucratic political machine in the history of this country is not lib eralism Stands for Security Neither is it liberalism to boast of performance when there are still 11 million of our citizens out of work I stand for social security and so do you But I stand for a system of protection for every citi zen against the hazards of age and distress Let me repeat what I said in Chi cago only the other night If I am elected the budget is going to be balanced and I am not going to take four years to do it But it is not go ing to be balanced by depriving the needy unemployed of necessary re lief or by swamping the people with taxes The budget can be balanced by cutting out profligate spending reckless experiments and the use of public funds for political purposes The shackles must be taken from American enterprise No Sure Recovery There cannot be any sure recov ery until the governments own house in Washington has been put in order Recovery is impossible un der an administration which spends two dollars for every one it takes in We must get back to the funda mental principles of a system of free enterprise Under this system Americans have been free to do what would bring them an honest and profitable livelihood provided they did not infringe upon the sim ilar rights of others They have been free to plan for their own ability They have been free to plan for their children confident in the knowledge that in America there is no handicap of birth or class distinction That freedom the republican party pro poses to reestablish And so I say again we must put the spenders out We must restore common sense in government We must put the American government

made a pitiful spectacle in crit icizing government spending while seeking federal aid themselves and pledged his administration to save1 the constitutional form of govern ment for America As in former speeches he did not mention Gov Alf M Landon or Col Frank Knox by name but he struck out again at republican leadership for what he said was its inconsist ency in making different promisea to western and eastern audiences Cheer Him The crowd which Police Chief George Marland estimated at sent up a big cheer when the pres ident leveled his oratory against the republican leaders and again as he told or local units originating works projects and said in the overwhelming majority of cases your advice was When republican leaders speak out he said they proclaim their sympathy with all these

will be small as long as we have good range in the west and main tain our soil fertility in the corn belt Better to Prosper He added cattle imports were largest when prices were best as in 1929 and
