been given so much of an -emphasis in
'the platform of Theodore uoosuvem
now an avowed eandldate for president
and it figures so largely in the politi-
cal vocabulary of the times that We
are frequently asked as to the ortgii

ered as a counterpart and accompani-
ment of the Initiative and referendum
which have been used jrt Switzerland

recall practically stopped in Swiezer-

dum were adopted. In otlr state ot
