Tho coroner's office co-operated with Fire Marshal Frank P. Kelly in attempting to trace reports from tenants that they heard shots and sounds of a violent quarrel a .short time before the fire was discovered. Kelly declared physical evidence showed tho fire started In the second- floor apartment of Miss Gertrude Hillman. The girl, however, declared she was awakened by smoke and rushed Into the hall to find tho blaze sweep- Ing In from another direction. She denied it started in her apartment. A man caller, who she admitted was with i her until 11 p. in., was sought for i questioning. (Continued on Page Seventeen) Saturday PROPHETIC LETTER SENT BY COOLIDQE WASHINGTON, Jan. G. (U. P.)—A prophetic letter from Calvin Coolldge waa received only yesterday by Theodore Clark, who waa Mr. Coolldge's secretary at the White House. "I know my work Is done," Mr. Cool- Idffe wrote. ' The 1 letter concerned Coolldge's thoughts about the coming administration of Franklin D. Roosevelt and the vexing problems which he must face. Clark said the letter concerned no such minor matter as the perpetual struggle between tho Democrats and tho Republicans, but expressed the greatest sympathy for Mr; Roosevelt, i whom, Mr. CooUdgo said, must face tremendous problems on almost the very day ho takes office.

GOVERNOR ROLPH IS STUNNED BY NEWS SACRAMENTO, Jan. 5. (A. P.)— Governor Rolph was greatly shocked when he WUH 'advised of the death of Calvin Coolidge. Ho .sat at his desk for 10 minutes before he said a 1 word to any person in the office, "Wo nro stunned ut tho news of tho puddon death of tho only living ex- T'resident of the t'nited States, beloved' Culvln Coolld£G," said, governor. , • . •' (Continued From. Page One) of those who had served two full terms had shown him that the latter part of their tenure of office was devoid of constructive accomplishments. The nation was startled when on.Au • •- • • -j< • gust 2, 1927, the president issued Ills famous statement: ' - "t Do Not Choots" , 4 I "I do not choose to run for president in 1928." • It was interpreted variously throughout the country. Many saw in It a sincere wish for retirement, but still a willingnoBs to accept the nomination should an insistent demand arise. Othern looked upon It us a final de- clHlon that he would not bo a candidate for re-election. There were j many, too, \vho regarded it as a | shrewd attempt to avoid the third term issue by having^hlmaelf "drafted for office.'* This confusion was clarified by Mr. Coolldgo In an address before the Republican national committee the following December. In alx crisp sentences which were added at the last minute to a prepnrod speech, the President declared that he had "eliminated" himself entirely from the presidential raco and advised the party to continue "the serious task of selecting another candidate.". This decision, he asserted, "must be respected," But Mr. Coolldge did not stop there. When the Republican national convention met at Kansas City in June. 192S. he dispatched his secretary, Everett Sanders, to the session with Instruction*? "to notify several leaders of the state delegations npt to vote" for him. "Had I not done so," ho said In hia magaxme writing?, "T am told I shoultt have been nominated." • Was Dstsrmlnsd Mr. Coolklpo is on record ofc having said that he had never formulated In his own mind what his attitude would have been had he been nominated. "But I was determined," he added, "not to have that contingently arise." One of the major issues of that convention had been a principal subject of contention during the latter fears of the Coolidge administration and one that the president had tossed squarely Into the center of the presl- den^ittl campaign. U was farm relief. Signs of unrest in the farming sections of the middle west were apparent when Mr. Coolidge took office. The farmers of that section were confronted with a serlouH deprcsRlon and called upon the federal government for help in finding a way out. ThelR spokesmen In Congress clamored for legislation and the passage of a measure which Mr, Coolidffe felt ho could* not support. That was the original McNary-Haugen bill, containing the famous and much-discussed equalization fee provision. Urging the development of co-operative marketing organisation** as the bust solution for tho depression, Mr. jCoolldge declared ho must oppose any form of price fixing, either direct or indirect, and called for the measure's defeat. It was passed twice by Congress and on uach occasion it received a presidential veto. With the second veto the president sent to .Congress a scathing message In which he termed tho measure "economic vfolly." Peacsful Relations The Coolldgo administration was characterized by peaceful relations with the rest of tho world and attempts by tho president to make that peace a lasting; one. Early in 1927, he asked the principal naval powers to I meet for a discussion of the limitation of auxiliary vessels of war, to supplant tho Washington treaty of 1091 which applied only to capital ships. Japan and Great Britain accepted and representatives of the three nations gathered at Geneva. It has been wild that the conference was not preceded by a sufficient amount of preliminary consideration of technical methods of disarmament, but at any rate. IrreoonoHablo differ-' onpflf* of opinion arising from the wjduly varied npcdy of the United Btutea and England caused the con- - 1 ' 1 -- * • •- ~«i4»4' f r *• i- -i* ,'**•-- •• f * t the tho ference to end in a deadlock that continued to the end of the Coolidge administration. "Entangling Alliance" 1 Mr. Coolldge also sought to preserve peace through the Kellogg multilateral treaty for the renunciation of war, which he, declared the most Important subject'to b» discussed by the Senate during his time In the White House. In Bplte-'pf determined opposition from a' group" of senators who regarded the act as an "entangling alliance, 1 * and one destined, to lead eventually to membership in tho League of Nations, the pact was formally ratified by an overwhelming vote. ; The president also was of the opinion that peace could be preserved through tho maintenance of a strong national defense and he was a consistent advocate of n large, but noncompetitive navy. In the lns.t year of his administration he vigorously endorsed a measure authorizing the-construction of 15 new 10,000-ton cruisers and a 16,000-ton aircraft carrier. Although tho bill encountered stern opposition It finally was approved by Congress. Another major Coolldge policy was that of reduction of the high tax schedules that came with, the war. Three cuts were effected during his administration, which relieved thousands "of citizens of the burden of a federal levy, in addition to sharply decreasing the amounts paid Into the government by the large corporations And big business generally. > Many Offers Long before ho retired from office, Mr. Coolldge received numerous offers to make professional and bu&I- ness connections at tho expiration of his term, but consistently declined to entertain any of them. After he returned to Northampton he engaged In literary work temporarily, writing for magazines the story of his administration and an autobiography. About two months after leaving the White House he made his first business connection when ho accepted election -as a member of the board of directors of the New York Life Insurance Company, He was chosen to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Myron T. Herrlck, American ambassador to France. * Calvin Coolidge was born on Independence day, July 4, 1872, in Plymouth, a country village in the Vermont hlllB, tho son of John C. and Victoria Moor Coolldge. He was descended from John and Mary Coolldge, who had settled In Watertown, Mass., about 1630, and- his ancestry ran through'a long line of farmers who lived In Massachusetts , until his great-great grandfather moved into Vermont. His father was the village storekeeper OH well as a farmer, and t-.o the son had a double training under his father's care, plowing and digging: in the fields and selling and figuring behind the counter. Here were developed In him tho'Industry, frugality and self-reliance which nhapcd the course of his life. His mother died- when he was 13 and four years later he lo«t his only sister, but a warm tiond of sympathy developed between him and his stepmother. Attending School • Between "chores" on the farm and In the store; tho future president at- tencfed the ungraded school at Plymouth, n single room with a wood stove. Afterward he attended tho i Black lUver Academy nt Ludlow and the academy ut St. Johnsburg before going to Amherst College. He was a keen student, but only In n modest way did he enter into tho activities of college life. During his senior year, in open competition with students of all American colleges, he won the first prize, a gold medal, for the best essay on the causea of the Revolutfonarj* War. He was graduated in 189C, with" the degree of A. B. and at the commencement was grove orator. Had he had money enough to go through law school that fact might have changed rhls whole oareor. A« It was ho moved across the Connecticut river to the nearby town of Northampton, Mass,, . iind found a position In the law office of Jlammond & Field- Within 20 months he was admitted to the bar and began practice. In Politics Early Mr. Coolldge never had time to prove to the world whether he would have made a great lawyer for he was drawn almost Immediately into politics and with few Intervals that thereafter was his life work. On October 4, 1905, Mr. Coolldge married Miss Grace A. Goodhue of Burlington, Vt., making a home for his bride in a two-family .house in Northampton. They continued to occupy that until Mr. Coolidge became vice-president and returned to it at the conclusion of his services as President. They Wad two sons, John and Calyln, Jr. The .latter's death, which occurred after' a brief illness during the summer of 1924, was the first of two bereavements in Mr. Coolldge's family during his-occupancy of the White House. Early in 1926 his father died at his Vermont home while his son was speeding from "Washington to his bedside. (United Press Leased Wire) SACRAMENTO, Jan. C.—Reducing crime and crime costs In California Is "good business" .and is possible through the application of tested administrative methods, the California crime problem advisory committee reported today." The report,, embracing a two-year study made at the request of the 1931 Legislature, contained numerous recommendations . for changes in handling the state's'crime problem. "The inability of law enforcement agencies to deal with the problem in a satisfactory manner Is due not only to the difficulties inherent In the work, but also to the fact that government has not applied here the best known administrative methods of. treating crime and criminals which have been tested elsewhere and found valuable," the report said. Co-operation Needed 1 The need of more co-operation "between governmental agencies is of paramount importance, the committee pointed out. The report points out that a criminal comes under the Jurisdiction of city, township, county and state officials who, ;"although* dealing with a single cose tend to operate as separate and distinct agencies with little exchange of information and agreement as to purpoie/' Based on the results of a year's study the committee recommended: * * Recommendation* 1.
