For the first -time in many weeks the popular Democratic gov- ernor, Frank Lausche, who has very conspicuously refused to en- dorse Ferguson, had consented to share a platform with his running mate. Both men spoke. The con- trast was downright cruel. Lausche is the greatest liv- ing exponent of the William Jennings Bryan school of American oratory. Although his speech was confined to wrath- ful denunciation of the "racke- teers" and "special and to throbbing approval of the American flag and the American home, Lausche soon had the audience of Democrat- ic jobholders literally gripping ed to advance into Tibet to freelto encourage greater production.

Inadequate meat supplies with consequent price controls and rationing could put the administration in a tough spot, particularly if no steps were taken north of the captured Com munist capital of Pyongyang, ooxcar loads of ammunition and 20 Russian-built tanks damaged, but needing only minor repairs.

Asked why he was so obvi- ously confident of beating- Taft, he replied, "Well, I sign all the checks the State of Ohio sends out, and that don't hurt me none." The state job has given him an opportun- ity, which he has used perfect- ly honestly but very shrewd- ly, to build a vast personal fol- lowing in Ohio. Ferguson revealed the second part of his magic formula when) he was asked his views of the) Brannan plan. He replied frankly that he really didn't know what it was all about, but, he continued after a moment's reflection, "If the farmers want it, I'm for it, if the farmers don't want it, I'm against it." Ferguson has been vociferous- ly in favor of everything an y large voting group, whether farm- ers or workers or veterans or old people, wants. This is not exactly a brand new rule in politics. But Ferguson has followed this rule with exceptionally single-minded devotion. Ferguson's second asset is sim- ply the nature of the man him- sell. A likeable, bouncy roan, all once affable and as combative a gamecock, he hss the instinctive! politican's friendly gregariousness.
