This is a free country and everyone is entitled to his own opinions .mil to express them before any audience that is willing to listen. The whole nation listens when Alfred K.

Mr. Smith expressed himself in favor of "gold dollars as Wjjainst haUmey dollars." Fortunately the choice does not lie between j;o!d and baloney. Neither docs it -lie between "(sound money,'' whatever that may be, and printing press money. The money that best serves the interests of 130,Ouli,OUU Americans best deserves to be called round. Hce'ause adherence to the old gold standard dollar meant economic disaster by reason of the fact ;nat business depression had c:u:;ed the value of jjuld to obtain an abncinivil relationshin to the value of other commodities, the president abandoned the jrold standard.
