Of winch former president, Hoover writes, is the old tim?
rightji of property and privileged business as huti been car-
ried on in the past by the republican party.
Mr. Iekes charges that the articles recently released by
the former president was nothing short of a Philippic against
the rights of the American worker and his struggle for a
home and happiness.

It is easy to see in talking
with some of those who have
had special privileges until
the government came along

age man his elemental rights,
that such are opposed to the

The subtle attack of Mr.

Hut to those who have heard
such talks before and know the
conscienceless stride of privi-
leged business, they brand it
as being in line with one, who
while serving the country as
president, did much to bring
on this depression.
He uses a lot of high sound-
ing phrases and meaningless
terms, which characterized all
his speeches when the nation
was suffering for a leader.
