CALVIN COOLIDGE IS
THE NEW PRESIDEN1
President Calvin Coolidge, the nev
president of the United States, is the
thirtieth person to occupy that exaltee
and exacting position. The formei
vice president became president in th<
very early hours of last Friday morn
ing when he was sworn in by his
father, John C. Coolidge, at the farn
home of the latter at Plymouth vil
lage, Vermont. The new presidenl

when he received the news by couriei
of the sudden and sad death of Presi

Coolidge residence, where the vice
president was spending his vacation,
The oath was administered hy the
elder Coolidge, a notary public, by the
dim light of a kerosene lamp and in
the presence of but a few witnesses,
and immediately thereafter President
Coolidge was hurried to Washington
to assume his responsibilities as the
executive head of the greatest nation
on earth. No parent ever before has
had and it is probable none ever again
will have accorded him the distinction
and. privilege of administering to a
son the oath of office which makes him
the most powerful ruler in the entire
world. The inauguration of President
Calvin Coolidge, although sad the oc
casion which brought it about, will go
down in history as one of the most
unique, the most romantic and the
The new president is no stranger
to public life, although before his
nominaton to the vice presidency not
a figure in national politics. He first
came before the eyes of the nation
and of the world when as governor
of Massachusetts he quelled a police
mens strike and rioting in Boston. He
displayed his ableness as governor of
Massachusetts and demonstrated
qualities of firmness and decision
which make him a fit successor to his

middle of the month. After a short
furlough he will probably be stationed
