never be righted under our present form of government."

Representatives:--Plumley--"This alleged defense bill . . . is an unconscionable fraud on the public and on those people who must pay the piper as the New Deal fiddles along. . . . Rank deception." Martin--"Every ideal of Americanism has been imperiled by those who would make our Government and our nation tools to be manipulated by one man at the head of a great and unelected political bureaucracy."

Boston Transcript, June 21--"He cannot dissociate his own selfish political success from the welfare of our nation. The people can have no faith in a President who makes national defense a game of political football." Detroit Free Press, June 11--"The people have consented without protest to the spending of many billions in the belief that they are investing their money in an insurance policy. They have not agreed that it shall be tossed into a gigantic gamble on the turn of the dice in Europe. There is a growing belief that . . . there has been more politics than there has been patriotism." Time, June 24-- "'Whoa, Mr. President', cried the Detroit News, sensing in Franklin Roosevelt's non-belligerent intervention a pull toward war. Hundreds of letters approved (8-to-1) the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's bitter declaration that the President, unless checked, would take the U. S. over the brink of war." Wall Street Journal--"This is no time to speak loudly while armed with a couple of feather dusters, one 'in hand' and one 'on order'."

Bunkum is what presidential campaigns are built on. In the democratic process votes must be won, bait used. To rule 'em, fool 'em.

The purpose of these Bulletins is to expose bunk, to provide data for sound interpretations, not to give opinions, our own or others, not to be partisan or political. But as Bulletin #62 dealt with the Administration, we are here dealing with its opponents.

The 'build-up' for Willkie is like that of Landon in 1936, Charles Michelson, of the Democratic National Committee, tells us in his weekly release "Dispelling the Fog". "The Kansas Governor did carry Vermont and Maine, so somebody must have believed in the picture painted to make him palatable to the voters. Fortunately for the Republicans Senator McNary is a thinking, rather than a talking individual, which will save him from embarrassing heckling." ( N.Y. Times, July 6)

How Landon had long cannily built his local political fences, how Hoover in 1934 chose him as a stalking horse for his own intended comeback, and how "Big Business climbed on the Landon band-wagon
