Speaking In Lincoln, Army
Man-Tells of the Poli
tics of Former
t Lincoln, Oct. 27. Maj. Gen.
Leonard Wood, as the principal
speaker at the Roosevelt memorial
meeting here, devoted his address
largely to reminiscences of the for
mer president's life as a political
leader and as a man in military life.
"In politics," said General Wood,
"Roosevelt was the most dominant
figure in recent history, an inpelliiig
force in civic duties, as a military
man he was the most subordinate of
subordinates. He believed in the
strenuous life and -after he had ac
cepted the nomination for the vice
presidency, thrust upon him in op
position to his wishes, he wrote me
that he felt he had gone into par
tial retirement and taken the veil.
His domestic policy was always
firm, always of high standing."
General Wood said Colonel
Roosevelt had an understandable
policy on the question of labor. It
was that labor was free to organize
and at the-same time was equally
free not to organize.
General Wood referred to Roose
velt's abhorrence of bolshevisin and
the red flag and added that while
this country had been busy putting
out the fires in other countries, it
had allowed a 'great deal of smoke
to accumulate in its own cellar. The
bolshevistic element in this country,
he continued, was small, but very
dangerous. He then cited recent
outbreaks . in Omaha, Gary, Ind.,
