Bricker, the Republican Vice Presidential nominee, went to the heart of President Roosevelt's failure to keep faith with the American people in his St. Louis address Wednesday night. He recalled that Mr. Roosevelt had declared at Boston on the eve of the 1940 election: "I have said this before, but I shall say it again and again: Your boys are not going to be sent into any foreign wars." That pledge was made Oct. 30, 1940, the week before election, when the President could not help knowing he was conveying a false impression. Congress had passed and sent to the President on Sept. U a bill providing for compulsory military draft of all men between the ages of 21 and 35. Registration was held just two weeks before the President spoke. Secretary Stimson, blindfolded, on Oct. 29, drew number 158 out of the glass bowl to begin selecting men from 16,313,240 possible draftees. That was the day before the President made his "promise" to parents. At the same time Mr. Roosevelt had arranged to let Great Britain have 12,000 airplanes. We were aiding in every practical way the enemies of Germany and Japan. It is childish to assume the President did not suppose we were getting ready for war. . Parents naturally were alarmed, just as they were back in 1910, when they voted for Wilson because "he kept us out of war". Wilson and Roosevelt both knew we were headed for war, and it could not be anything but a "foreign war". Mr. Roosevelt, in 1940, undoubtedly held hopes, as all of us held them, that the United States might, in some manner, avoid war. But Governor Bricker is right in condemning him for making a flat pledge to the people which Mr. Roosevelt knew very likely could not be kept and which was aimed "to secure votes". Governor Bricker, at St. Louis, made another telling point as he showed how the old Democratic party was "taken over" by the New Deal crowd, and how the New Deal is now being "taken over" by the Hillman-Browder cohorts, who are bringing the class hatred methods of the Old World to American politics. The speech ' was the strongest that Governor Bricker has made in the campaign. Indianapolis Star. PREDICTION ON POLLS.
