in the usual sense of the word except to answer things which are misrepresentations or gross misstatements of fact What the president actually said in his prepared San Diego speech accepting the 4thterm nomina tion was this I shall not campaign in the usual sense for the office In these days of tragic sorrow I do not consider it fitting Besides in these days of global warfare I shall not be
