do you want us to reward a fine man
by giving him a job he cannot handle
patriotically? I do not question his business
skill; I question his Americanism. But
I do not question the Americanism of
Wood or of Johnson. Do not tell me
that business ability is the only important
thing; that the world needs a rest; that
everybody should stop rowing and let their
craft slip on a sand bank and hang up
to dry. That is the cry of the old react-
ionaries, who want to retain control; who
want to take the government of the people
