tive power of the Nation is vested in
the President, subject to the excep-
tions and qualifications expressed in
the Constitution. .......
Leaders Should Co-dperate
"I should not favor a change in the
distribution of power or any modifica-
tion of practice which would encour-
age the notion that the Executive is
responsible to the legislative branchI
of the Government in matters which
under the Constitution are exclusively
of executive concern. . . . . But
speaking in my private capacity and
expressing only a personal opinion,
I do believe in multiplying the
facilities for appropriate co-operation
between responsible leaders, who un-
derstand their respective functions, in
a manner suited to the full discussion
of great international questions when
these fall within the constitutional
ocmpetency of the Senate.....
"The paramount importance of con-
tact with the Press is fully recognized,
but in the nature of things, this con-
tact for the most part must be in-
formal. What is desired is not control,
of news but accurate information. To
meet this demand, the President him-
self meets the correspondents twice
a week and department heads still
more frequently. The Secretary of
State has two press conferences each
working day at which either the Sec-
retary or the Under-Secretary is
present. The officers are not quoted,
but there is frank disclosure of facts
and aims withing the widest possible
limits. There is thus the most direct
contact with those who are the prin-
cipal purveyors of information and
the chief educators of the public. This
is our substitute for parliamentary
interpellation. It is in this manner
'that, in substance, account is ren-
dered to the final authority.
"But open diplomacy must still be
diplomacy, and it canot be open at
the cost of losing its essential char-
acter and of frustrating its proper
purposes. By. diplomacy, I mean the
art of conducting negotiations witl
foreign Powers, and when we refer,
with suitable discrimination, to open
diplomacy, we have in mind the appro-
priate publication of international
negotiations, the absence of intrigue,
priately disclosed; that there should
candor and directness. The diplomacy
of the United States has been, and is,
"open diplomacy. . . . ..
"Moreover, the maintenance of in-
ternational good-will during negoti-
ations is of vital importance. While
it is assumed that democracies are
peace-loving, it cannot be forgotten
that the activities of democracies fre-
quently make it difficult to arive at
a good understanding.,
"With all these considerations, it
remains true that there should be no
secrecy for its own sake; that gen-
eral policies should be made clear;
that particular aims should be appro-t
privately disclosed; that there should
be public announcement of all pro-
ceedings to the extent consistent with
that essential requirements of negoti-
ation; and that nothing should ever
be done by our diplomatic agents
which as far as its actual character,
is concerned could not be publicly
proclaimed and justified as being free
from artifice and deception and in full
accord with American principles....
"The principal difficulty at this time
in our conduct of foreign affairs is
not without method, prejudiced and
inflammatory discussions in which
some of our citizens and certain por-
tions of the press permit themselves
to indulge. If there is to be less re-
ticence in diplomacy, there must be,
if not a greater reticence, it least a
keener sense of responsibility in the
discussion of international questions.
Open diplomacy and blatant and. inju-
dicious utterances will not go well to-
gether. The corrective can only be
found in that state of the public mind
which will unsparingly condemn and
ostracize those who by their base im-
putations imperil our friendly rela-
tions with other nations....
Foresees New Era
"There are those who view the dis-
locations caused by the war, the pres-
.ent wide-spread impoverishment, the
assaults and too frequent triumphs of
unreason, the controversies over
superficialties and the ignoring of
the cause of distress and insta-
bility, with a feeling of hope-
lessness. But this is not the end
,of the world; rather it is the begin-
ning of a new era, a formative period
when it is the highest privilege to live
and perform one's part....
"Above all we need the spirit of
reasonableness which men and wo-
men of good sense and culture may
bring to public discussion,-that calm
Judgment which proceeds from wide
knowledge and keen insight."
