serving oifir Americanism," Senator Hir&m W. Johnson of California j UJNoULlUAI lUIl iOBr ;
declared in a statement at his home here today. :—
For more than a year the contest over the President's League
of Nations has been waged in Congress," Senator Johnson's state-
ment said. "It has been the all-engrossing and paramount issue. Of
necessity, this issue came to the conventions of the great political
parties. Both Republicans and Democrats, in their platforms, have in-
dulged in the usual political verbosity, but nevertheless these plat-
forms, in direct opposition to each other, sharply define and clearly
present the question for decision in the November election. ,
"The Republican party declared that the President's covenant
'failed signally to accomplish' its purpose, and contained stipula-
tions not intolerable for an independent people, but certain to pro-
duce the injustice, hostility and controversy among nations which
it proposed w prevent and 'repudiated to a degree wholly unneces-
sary and unjustifiable, the time honored policies in favor of peace
declared by Washington, Jefferson, and Monroe.' <
"The Republican party stands, therefore, firmly against the
President's covenant as presented, denounces it as breeding war
rather than promoting peace, and reaffirms the time honored, nation-
old policies of Washington, Jeffersofrai
"The Democratic party, on the oj
fort to modify or qualify the Presi<
tions, endorsed the President's attiti
of the league as presented. It is true^that the Democrats, in an ef-
fort to placate, say something about reservations which might make
clearer or more specific the obligations of the United States, but the
language is meaningless and does not at all alter the essential posi-
tton of the Democratic party for the league as presented.
"The two parties acted in similar fashion in one respect, but from
different motives and for different reasons. Both rejected the pleas
for adoption of the league with reservations, the Democrats because
they were for the league as presented; and because no reservations
devised by the human mind could anticipate the contingencies which
might arise in, the future from an instrument of such potential possi-
bilities for harm.
, "Thus the issue finally comes from the forum of Congress to
the final arbitrameunt of the American people. The overshadowing
question in the campaign, therefore,'is whether we enter the mael-
strom. of European and Asiatic politics and diplomacy and become
a part of the cynical imperialism of the old world, or whether Ameri-
ca shall live her life in her own way, independent, unfettered, mind-
ful always of her obligations to humanity and civilization, but free to
act as each crisis shall arise, and maintaining always the policy of
Washington, and Jefferson and Monroe, bf friendship with all na-
tions, entangling aljiances with none. v'. ... r
"With a candidate standing four-square upon the platform, the
issues leaves those who believe in safeguarding, protecting and pre-
serving our Americanism, but one choice, and that is to support the
