“Certainly,” replied the dairyman.

IN MESSAGE TO
U. S. CONGRESS
“Forecast” of President’*
Speech Sent Out Before
BY WILLIAM P. FLYTHE
Universal Service Correspondent i
Washington, Dec. 3.—President
Coolidge's future message to con*
gress and official utterances will be^
most guarded and secret until he
actually begins to talk, the White
House let it be known Sunday.
This is the result of a situation
that gives promise to developing into
a scandal, in no way reflecting upon
the president, but upon those in
whom he reposed confidence.
On Thanksgiving day, November
29, the president’s message to con
gress, delivered on December 6, was
distributed in booklet form to be
held for publication until he should
begin to speak to the joiht session
of congress. A reason for doing this
was that it could be sent to news
paper offices by mail and save tele
graph tolls ns well'as congestion of
“Forecast” Sent Out
The following day the leading
brokerage houses In Washington sent
out over their ticker tapes what was
“said by experts to be a forecast of
what the president would say." It
was not only absolutely accurate, but
private telegrams assured investors
It was copied from the text. Tile
next day, November 30, and not when
the president went before congress,
the stock market reacted very ma
terially , This was noted particularly
in the railroad securities.
This, however, is just the begin
ning, the White House indicates. The
message was distributed liberally to
persona who are politically oppfVea
to the president. One reason why
his message is said to have caused
so little excitement In congress Is
that there were few men on the floor
Who had not been acquainted witn
its context, or read it In full. Thai
portion of It was expected to excite
applause merely brought forth a
knowing nod between members as
one who would observe, ‘“I told you
Newspapers Not Blamed
The newspapers kept the faith, the
White House la sure, but there is
another element about which there
is not so much certainty. It is the
financial journals, the representa
tives of various industries and stock
markets whose publications are read
on stock markets or in exclusive
circles of the stock speculator.
Representatives of these interests,
unlike dally newspapers, seeking the
hones purpose of distributing the
news, obtained copies at the same
time. They went, of course, into the
hands of persons most vitally Inter
ested in what the president would
say and more directly Into the hands
of market manipulators, the White
House let it be known.
The White House Itself was unduly
liberal, reposing confidence In those
who called upon the president. But
among those were several persons or
high industrial status, who, although
denying having talked over matters
of importance with the president,
were seen to have one of the coveted
booklets in their hand or pocket.
The president. It Is learned, wished
to discuss with many of his callers
the provisions In his wlrtten word
and obtain their reactions, a result
that could only be obtained after
"mature consideration,” which re
quired the possession of the docu>

WM. M. BUTLER
George Harvey to Have
\ctive Management of
Race for President
Washington. Dec. 9.—President
Coolidge’s candidacy for the presi
dential nomination .was formally
launched Sunday afternoon.
The announcement was made In the
form of an official statement from
Coolldge managers that William M.
Butler, national committeeman front,
Massachusetts, will be the president’^
“personal representative" and will ap
point assistants In other states.
Preceding the announcement, there
was a conference at the White House
In which Mr. Butler, Frank W.
Stearns, George Harvey and James
B Reynolds, who was Coolldge’s man
ager in 1920, participated.
While the public was barred from
the conference, It is understood that
the president's friends succeeded in
convincing him that he should not
delay longer In announcing himself
as a candidate for the nomination.
The only announcement made was
In a brief typewritten statement,
which was given out by Reynolds. It
was as follows:
“In answer to a question, Frank W.
Stearns stated that the friends of
President Coolldge are organizing
under the guidance , of William M.
Butler, tho Massachusetts member of
the national comniitteo and a friend
of Mr. Coolidge of many years stand
ing, who will act as tho president's
"As ho perfects the organization he
will, from time to time, make known
those who, in various parts of tho
country, who will co-operate with
him In the organization.”
It is understood that white the
president will have Mr. Butler as his
personal representative in the cam
paign, the active management will be
entrusted to George Harvey,
It was characteristic of the presi
dent that he refrained from making
any personal comment on the confer
ence. The president has maintained
from the start that he would trust
the selection of the nominee entirely
to his friends, that he would not "cam
paign” for the place, nor make
speeches in support of his own can
didacy. It was In accordance with
this understanding that ho permitted
Reynolds to speak for him In making
the formal announcement that he Is
in the race.
Ever since Senator Johnson an
nounced his candidacy, supporter* of
the president have been urging him to
come out with a statement that
would show he Intends to seek the
nomination and at the same time give
sonic encouragement to those who
would like to get Into the fight for
The president refused steadfastly
to discuss the matter at all until his
message to congress had been deliver
ed. When the South Dakota proposal
convention gave him an endorsement
for tho nomination White House
statements indicated that the presi
dent was pleased with the endorse
ment and would make an announce
ment not only accepting It, but giving
notice to the country at large that
he Is in the race for the nominalon.
The message delivered by the presi
dent to congress last Thursday is
generally regarded as the platform of
policies upon which he will stand in
his campaign. Ratification of the
World Court proposal, adoption of
the Mellon tax reduction plan and
defeat of the soldier bonus were the
principal issues adopted by the presi
dent In the message.
Senator Johnson will make his cam
paign ol' opposition to the country on
