Some Members of Cabinet Believe
He is After High Executive
Job at White House. -
Washington, D. C, Oct. 21. Hen
ry Ford is grooming himself for the
presidency of the United States,
some members of President Hard
ing's cabinet believe.
One cabinet official said he is con
vinced the Detroit automobile wiz
ard wants to use the Muscle Shoals
project as a stepping stone for 1924.
Ford. : this official thinks, has
evolved an ambition of becoming the
patron saint of the farmer by tak
ing over the Muscle Shoals plant,
turning out millions of barrels of
fertilizer at an unheard of low price,
and thereby making himself such
an outstanding figure in both in
dustry and agriculture that he will
be called to the political leadership
of the nation.
One official here who scents pres
idential ambitions in Ford's activity
declares he is receiving propaganda
thru the mails daily from widely
scattered points, which, he believe.
i5 being circulated with a view to
presenting the availability of Ford
to the public.
Another close friend of President
Harding, however, has just returned
from a ten days' visit with Ford.
Though his visit is alleged to have
teen strictly personal, this visitor
declares Ford denied positively hav
ing political' ambitions of any kind.
