Condemnation of President Cool
idg the Republican leadership anil
"corruption of jfovernment" is the
striking note in the Democratic cam
paign book just issued by the Demo
cratic national committee, which is
primarily a manual for speakers and
editors. A carefully prepared series
of articles, tables, data and statistics
on other issues is presented, but
throughout the book emphasis is
given to graft, dishonesty and scan
dal during the Harding -t'oolidge ad
ministration. President Coolidge is criticized for
not having taken the initiative in the
unearthing of "corruption." for fail
ure to act promptly after the revela
tions made by the senate committee,
and also for not making a greater
success as a leader.
"President Coolidge. faced by sig
nal opportunities and national expec
tations, has lamentably failed as a
leader either of the people or of his
party,'- says the campaign book. "He
has failed to solve domestic problems
or to improve foreign relations."

leases, the Doheny "loan" of $100,000
and the Sinclair "loan" of $25,000 to

tailed biographies and records of the
two nominees are given, and a com
parison of all three party platforms
by subjects.
