CALVIN COOLIDGE American people sincerely mourn the A unexpected passing of Calvin Coolidge at his country home in Northampton, Massachusetts, where he spent most of the few years since his retirement from the While House at Washington. He hud served almost two terms as President of the United States, following a distinguished career in public office which carried him from comparatively inconspicuous posts of honor to the highest responsibilities in the nation. His mode of lite when death summoned him in the solitude of h'is bedroom was that of a private citizen, comfortably established in the peace and quiet of simple domesticity which so largely characterized his earlier years, and renewing the common touch with intimate friends and neighbors that was interrupted during those years of arduous .service in behalf of his country. Comparatively young, ,his future was not without promise of additional honors, both in public and business life, but apparently his personal vision turned in another direction. Fate determined what was to be, and now history may record the place which Calvin Coolidge is to occupy among great Americans. Mrs. Coolidge, whose lovable qualities as a woman, wife, mother and mistress of the White House endeared her to millions, has their deepest sympathy in her greatest bereavement. It is expressed now as it was when the Reaper's entrance into the While House first broke the family circle and claimed her son, Calvin, Jr. Her's is the inevitable experience of humanity which strengthens its bonds and sounds the depths of universal relationship. Outstanding activities of President Coolidge's administration at Washington ore yel fresh in Ihe memory of his, fellow citizens, and perhaps they need no extended review in these columns. His regime was marked by two extremes in the economic field, the first resulting from the depression of 192i and rehabilitation after the war, and the second from an unprecedented wave of business and . industrial expansion, accompanied by unbridled speculation in the stock markets which swept the nation to dizzy heights of prosperity. President Coolidge, called suddenly to the duties of that high office afler the dealh of Warren G. Harding, inherited the task of cleaning up the Teapot Dome oil scandal, reorganization of his cabinet and the restoration of public confidence in govern ment. Throughout his two terms, Mr. Cool idge emphasized a program of national "economy" and the word became synonymous with Coolidge. He was re-elected to office in 1924 upon a wave of public enthusiasm thai gave him a pluralily of approximately 7,000,000, the largest ever enjoyed by a presidential candidate up to that time. At his retirement in 1929, his admin istration was widely regarded as successfu in most of its policies. Probably history will deal very largely with the unusually dramatic factors which were so conspicuous in the personal one political career of Mr. Coolidge. Born on July 4, 1872, in Plymouth, Vermonl, he ex emplified the sturdy qualities of his New England ancestry and absorbed a passion for true Americanism. In his college days a Amhersl he won a gold medal in a nationa competition for the best essay on causes ol Ihe Revolutionary War. While Governor oi Massachusetts he achieved fame in connec lion with a strike at Boston. After serving part of one term -as vice-president, destinj , called him to the presidency and he look th oath of office in a candle-lighted room of th Coolidge home, administered by his own father. Among Ihe classics of Amcricai political lileralure is-his famous "I do no ^choose lo run," when he declined lo stand i'o ,,certain renominalion in Augusl, 1927. Hi , subsequent efforts to prevent "drafting" b; 'his party in 1928 have no parallel in ou history. As a quaint figure of public life in th ; United States, Calvin Coolidge will be greatly Inissed by all. His integrily, his asluleness his political sagacity and his Americanisn ^ wJll be missed in Ihe councils of his partisan * us ihey seek to rebuild their shattered foi ' - (unes. H OUSEWIVES who flnd It difficult to plan their budgets in these trying limes vill be interested in the experience of the tudcnts of the College of Agriculture at Lin- oln, Nebraska, where it has been ascertained ha I collegia na operating a co-operative curding club flnd it possible to keep the excuse per capita for food down to $3.25 a veek. But even that minimum figure looks ike downright extravagance to a couple of ther students who do their own cooking and who are able to subsist on $3 a month each, ot only able to subsist, but it is the record hut they have gained in weight and main- ained their athletic standing. According to detail, twice a week they nake a thick stew of beef, onions and pola- oes. This is frozen and reheated as they ccd it. They buy. wheat and have it ground whole at the Agricultural College, and are rou d of the bread they make. There is, in ddition, cabbage or other vegetable, with ccasionully eggs, and it is announced that lie boys expect "to hold out until gradua- ion." Not a very interesting menu, to 'be ure, and yet these college students flnd that t suffices to maintain them in full health and igor. The rations mentioned do not constitute n attractive program, of course, but the tern is interesting as indicating what may be ccomplished by careful planning. in the mater of household expenditures. RANDOM NOTES The government up in Canada takes ognizunue of the economic situation. Last p ear the Prime Minister made un order dis- osing of all governmental cars, and the members of his official family are required o find their own transportation. So they .ither walk or hire taxis. • » By way of contrast, we have the recent ipisode, wherein the Postmaster General, finding it inconvenient to get into his govern- nent-owned car with his top hat, promptly )roceeded to buy a more commodious car at cost of $3500, thus enabling him to occupy he rear seal without removing his headgear. With the federal deficit increasing at the •ate of $5,000,000 a day, and expected to •each $2,000,000,000 at the end of llie liscal year, there is no recession in the business of supplying automobiles for government officials. The Cabinet members have them and heir secretaries also, not just ordinary auto- nobiles, but expensive ones, all purchased by Uncle Sam, and most of them supplied with chauffeurs who receive from $1200 to $1500 a year. The estimated cost of the upkeep of ;ach car is from $300 to $500 a year, albeit he average owner of an automobile will agree that that is rather a low figure for the maintenance of an expensive car. There are eleven automobiles in service in he White House as against the five that suf- iced prior to the present administration. The Attorney-General has two cars at his disposal, and such officials as the head of the department of Bureau of Investigation have government cars and chauffeurs. The agricultural department has three of- Icial limousines, one for the use of Secretary rlyde, one for his chief forester and a third r or general use, while Secretary of War Hurley rides in a large sedan with a government chauffeur, as do Secretary of • the Navy Adams and Secretary of the Interior Wilbur Transportation for government officials, national, state and local, has grown to its present proportions within a very few years Expense runs into the millions of dollars annually, and again it may be said,that if government slops spending money for such purpose, there will be no vacancies in officia life, for the very good reason that nobody wil resign. It is just one new way of spending money which might be %aved to the taxpayers. * But it is not the Canada way; they are faced with the same conditions there that we are here in the United States, am! Ihey cu their doth accordingly. The automobiles are out, arid public officials find some other method of getting from (heir residences to the government buildings and back again Which means that there is less revenue to b collected from the taxpayers. • *' It may be said that the expenditure for transportation, compared with the total cos of government, is trivial. Unquestionably the I is true, but we must begin somewhere and why not with a luxury which has grown up in government within the last ten o fifteen years, the supplying of which add little or nothing to the public service.

The Presidential -box at the time of the assassination was draped with several flags and Booth's spur may have raked across more than one as he leaped out of the box onto the stage. . Until more definite historical data are unearthed than are at present In the possession of :ho Government, It' is safe to assume that the claim is authentic for both flags. Q.

NOW 00 ON WITH THE STORY CHAPTER Floating .far enough from the raft o escape the sizable surf created by a fancy diving. contest between Tom nd DeVos— and the even more cosmic Isturbances which followed Shaugh- nessoy's attempt's to Imitate '' them — Inda was by no mean as lazy. as she ooked. She was- turning: 'over In her mind the talk she must have with Statlarider, now sitting a trifle anx- ously on- the edge 'of the float as It tareened back and forth under 'the athletic exercises of the three younger men. ' . " . It was hard to keep her thoughts on he • subject. High tempera— quarrels —murder— seemed all Incredibly far away and unimportant In this restful leldlng to the ; little ripples which rently moved the tranquil waters of he bay. Suddenly Linda was startled >y a tremendous report and violent gltatlon of the water. Too near to ie 'pleasant a miniature geyser shot nto the air and, almost at her. elbow, wo long bare legs appeared wildly kicking. She went under head first Ighted herself and came up splutter- ng and laughing, beside the thrash- ng figure of the Irishman. "That.V he observed, treading water .nd puffing alarmingly, "was a swan live. Perhaps I should rechrlsten It he walrus at play. I'd no Idea It would carry me so far, Mrs. Averlll. Are you drowned entirely?" "Not entirely," replied Linda. "I'm leml-aquatlc, so - don't worry. I'd drifted nearer the raft than I Teal- zed. The tide's still setting In a' bit." They had stroked for the little ladder and she pulled herself up, feeling hat fate Indicated It was time to talk :o • Mr. Statlander. . He moved over courteously as she approached and she noticed with amusement that after me ^ startled glance at her dripping figure In the* scarlet jersey he modestly looked the other way. "You don't care much for the water, Mr. Statlander?'' He qlenpd his- throat. "Why, yes — .8 a rule. I'm a little put pf practice now. I don't get much time for swimming." ' "But you do swim, don't you?" "Certainly. It's a matter of ordinary common sense to do so." (He would put it .on a purely practical baste; thought Linda, as she mentally anticipated his next remark.) "Every child ought to-be taught the simple strokes and, of course, artificial respiration. I can certainly take care of myself. In the water." "But you. oouldn't swim the .Kng- llsh Channel?" Linda countered la- ly. "Well, neither could I." "Beg pardon?" he asked.1 The remark . hardly •. seemed worth repeating. ' ; ; "I ;said I'm no, Gertrude EMbtle," she answered. "I certainly don't feel very strenuous this morning. -Heavens!" as the flbat was .rooked by ah- other.outburst of energy on the part of the, three men, '.Mr, Statlander looked over • his shoulder ; distrustfully. •"Neither do I,'"he said. "As.a matter: of fact, I believe'that a short-stay.

Linda shrewdly Deflected • that' he probably 'objected to anything he could not do 'well himself.' "Twenty minutes—at the moat 26," he continued, "Is long enough to stay In the water. Remaining in a whole morning or- afternoon is sure to undermine the strength- In the long run," ' ....-' Linda, her hands over her eyes, was comfortably, taking a sunbath. ' "Don't you like to bask, Mr. Stat- lander?" she asked. "To what?" his tone indicated that ho could not believe his ears. .."To bask, like this—just He around and do nothing." "Certainly not." She felt his glance sweep over'her prostrate form and reflected that what might have precipitated compliments from another left, him Only disapproving. "What good do you get from lying flat on your back that way? Good brisk exercise— with a definite purpose. Each-day a little more than the day before. That's the only way to. go., about one's dally bathing, or any sport. . Of course It followed by a shower and a good, Invigorating" rubdown—" Linda suddenly sat erect. "That reminds me I I meant to ask you last night, Mr. Statlander. Has the maid given.. you enough towels In your bathroom!" •'.'•-.' It her that he looked at her rather'-.attentively, but it might have been her Imagination. "In fact," she went on, dreamily watching the swimmers,' "I rather lost track of the house yesterday—I was so upset. Rosie tells me that one of the guests complained last night of not having towels enough/and that she seemed unaccountably short." "I've been well supplied." "Ho-hum!" She stretched her arms up with a long breath that was neither a yawn nor a sigh, but expressed Indolent content. "I usually bring a towel down to the beach and I told her- perhaps' some of the men had done that and forgotten." . ' » • * ' . Silence was the only answer. Now how, she. pondered, could she say more than that? Then the man Reside her spoke rather stiffly. "I— hmp!—In passing through the nursery—as I told you yesterday, Mrs. Averlll—I noticed a. soiled towel- on the floor there. I picked It up and dropped It into the hamper in my bathroom. But I haven't left any on the beach' or elsewhere," "Goodness!" She laughed lightly but with a note of apology., "I didn't mean to accuse you of throwing away our towels, Mr. Statlander!. I just wanted to be sure you were well taken care of. Leave them on the beach or anywhere you wish. That's what they're there for—to be used. I loath to run short "myself or to have anyone else. Please excuse my seeming to harp ,on . the subject. , I'm half- asleep 'from lying about In this warm air. You're right—a dip should mean exercise and plenty of It. Won't you join me in another, swim?" As far as sho could tell her apology had .been taken In good part. After all, whore another man might have thought It-queer for'her to go babbling on about towels, 8 tat lander was the sort to treat every .detail as an affair of major importance. •'..-: "Yes,'I'd bo glad to.", His voice lacked any trace of annoyance, 'and that from' him was the equivalent of cordiality from another. "It's tjme to go in. • I was about to swim back to shore 'myself." (Linda, was quite, sure he •would : have gone when he l ,was ready and Jeft her stranded on the raft.) "You're in better practice than I but I'd like to test my-strength by yours." •- '" . • "" ; •'"•-'• ,"A race it Is!" Linda plunged in gayly and : he followed her. "We're racing In, Tom," she called as they passed. "See'you on. shore!" And she put out with what'she discovered to.her surprise had to be her strongest, surest strokes. Through the water ahead the man's'muscled, back was rising' and falling in steady rhythm. Statlunder was 'sU'ong. Each separate stroke ripped through the water into which that broad right shoulder carved ts way. She was breathless when her :nees suddenly scraped bottom. In he excitement of the chase Linda had lot realized sho was so near shore. He was already on his-feet, picking is way gingerly over the amatl stones f the upper beach. "You've got plenty of power In that itrokel" she gasped, hurrying along leslde him. Again she was conscious hat his air of dour, disapproval had slightly melted. Then she remem- >ered his response to open flattery he day before. "I know you want to get out of your wet suit, Mr. Statlander," she said, 'and I must go up, too. Perhaps j;ou'd Ike another dtp this evening, * We often cool off that way before bedtime. That reminds me I'll have the other room made up for tonight. You needn't move all your things. Why don't you just sleep there and go jack to the room' you have now to dress In the morning?" 'I haven't 'many 'things,' he said rather scornfully, "and what I have, I keep collected. I'm ready to move over any time. After luncheon, perhaps?" "Very well." She agreed reluc- antly but saw no way of avoiding it. Why did he so-want that room? "I'm sure you will find It cooler even if you don't leave your door open, as I suppose you had to do the last two nights—" Suddenly she remembered. Stat- ander had left his door .open the night before lost and had gone to open the nursery dooi* too! At least that was his explanation of how he came to be on the balcony. Stupid of her not to remember when she and Tom were talking It over! Relief wiped away ler feeling of annoyance. She left him at his door with a smile she did not find It hard to bestow.
