Getting ready for the big fight

President Roosevelt stands in the middle of his campaign office. He is looking over the shoulder of Frank Swett "Black," who is typing a "Nomination Speech" using material from Roosevelt's many books, lying near his desk. At other desks behind them, Senator Lodge is writing "The Platform" on a long roll of paper, while Secretary of Commerce and Labor Cortelyou develops "Campaign Plans" on a map of the "U.S."
