I'have el- ready stated that where the ROV- ernment is engaged in public works for purposes «el flood control, o! navigation, of Irrigation, of iclentlfic research or national defense, or in pioneering !n a new art, it will at times nscesRRrfly produce power or commodities as a by-product. But th*y must be a by-product of the inftjor purpose, not the major purpose Itself. Econsnjle Just ire. "Nor do I wish to be misinterpreted as believing thnt Uio United States is free-for-all and devil-take- the-hindmost. The very essence 01 equality of opportunity and of American individualism is that there 11 be no domination by any group or combination in this republic whether It be business or political. On the contrary. It demands cco- jNmiic Justice as well as political and social Justice." The republican standard bearer explgJnrd that he felt deeply on this subject because during the wnr he had some practical experience with governmental operation and I control, adding that he had wlt- J nessed not only fit home but abroad j the many failures of government in j business. "I have seen Its tyrannies, jit* Injustices, ita destructions of »eK i government, its undermining of ihe very instinct* which carry our people forward to progress," he said. "I , have witnessed the lack of advance, | the lowered standards of living, the 'depressed spirits of people working j under such control. j "My objection is based not upon ;the theory or upon « failure to rec- •oenise wrong or abuse, but I know • the adoption of such methods would j strike at the very roots of American life and would destroy the very bas- iii of American progress. ; Can SoHe Problems. : "Our people have the right to :kaow whether we can continue to isolve our great problems without 'abandonment of our American ays- 't«n. I know we can. We have ;; demonstrated that our system !s re- apoiwive, enough to mett any new land Intricate development in our economic and business life. We have .demonstrated that we can meet any j economic problem and still maintain .our democracy as master Jn ita own ;house'(u:d that we can at the same • tlmc_preserve <^u&Mty of opportu-^ nlty and individual freedom." 1 Stating- that the American people from bitter experience had a ; rightful fear that great business ; units might be used to dominate ; industrial life and destroy equality ;of opportunity, Hoover said that ^years ago the republican adminls- Itration had developed methods "by •which abuses could be prevented 'while the full value of industrial •.progress could be retained lor the .'public." j Public Utilities. j He added that where great public futilities, such as the railroads, the Jpower plants and telephone systems, were "clothed with the security of partial monopoly," the republican idinlnlUmtioa had Insisted upon he principle that there "must be he fullest and most complete con- rol of rates, services and finances ;y government or local agencies.

"Some may ask where all this may lead beyond mere material pro- grcsa. It leads to a release of the energies of men and women from the dull drudgery of life to a wider vision and a higher hope. It leads to the opportunity for greater and Krcater service, not alone from man to man in our own land, but from our country to the whole world. It leads to nn America, healthy in body, healthy in spirit, unfettered, youthful, eager—with a vUion searching beyond the farthest horizons, with an open mind sympa- hetlc and generous.
