Payne believes that Roosevelt will win the presidential election in Indiana because he has the support of the farmers. Although people believe in "the integrity, courage and ability" of Judge Parker, "no one believes that he can rise higher than the average of his partisans," who "represent every shade of commercial, financial and tariff views."

Letter from Gifford Pinchot to Will H. Hays

Description:

Gifford Pinchot writes to Republican Committee Chairman Will H. Hays about the importance of farmers to the Republican Party. He believes it is the farmers of Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, and Illinois that will be most vital to the next presidential election, not those of New York and Pennsylvania. Pinchot feels the danger that the Democratic Party may end up becoming the progressive party in the United States, particularly if it draws in the returning veterans of World War I. For the Republicans to attract them, the party must offer more than policies that the veterans will accept; Pinchot says that it must "label those policies with the names of men whom they will follow."
