Washington, D. C. Calvin Coolidge
Jr., son of the president, died Monday
night at Walter Reed hospital of blood
The end came after the boy had
battled with the utmost bravery and
fortitude for five days against a dis
ease which had racked his body with
pain and sapped the reserve strength
of his frail constitution.
President and Mrs. Coolidge, who
had maintained constant vigil at the
hospital, were at his bedside, hope
ful and cheering and comforting their
son to the last.
A sinking spell, the fourth he had
suffered in 24 hours, brought death.
Notwithstanding the use of oxygen und
other restoratives, the courage which
had withstood crisis after crisis and
had beaten death off repeatedly was
unable to meet' the attack. The col
lapse began at 0:30 o'clock and he
died at 10:30 oclock.
E. T. Clark, the president's per
sonal secretary, emerged from the
sickroom at 10 o'clock and told those

brother John on the White House
courts last Monday. At first paying no
attention to it, the youth developed
an alarming condition by Wednesday

and a desperate fight for life was
made by the boy, who struggled in
great pain and with high fever.

La Follettee Candidacy For
mally Indorsed.
it- -
Hobart Bosworth
All Elements at Cleveland Convention
Reported in Full Accord at
Cleveland, O. After indorsing
Robert M. La Follette as a presidential
candidate and providing for the organ
ization of a new political party next
January, the conference for progres
sive political action wound up its con
vention early Saturday night.
The conference empowered its na
tional committee to select a vice-presi
dential candidate after conference
with the "La Follette-for-president
La Follette was indorsed as a candi
date on his own platform. Tho con
vention then adopted for itself a plat
form embodying the ideas contained
in the Wisconsin document and in
the statement of principles issued at
the St. Louis session of the confer
ence last February.
The final day of the gathering work
ed out strictly according to plans ol
the leaders and without appreciable
opposition. But just before adjourn
ment some of tho delegates, dazed by
tho rapidity of events, had to be as
sured by the chair that La Follette
actually had been "nominated" and
that definite provision had been made
for the new party.
The confusion arose from the facl
that the report of the committee on
organization recommended this action
and that no separate motion of in
dorsement was offered. The report
itself was adopted without a dissent
ing vote, but the significance ot this
action did not dawn on either dele
gates or galleries and there was a
total absence of demonstration.
Repeatedly, Friday as Saturday,
the name "La Follette" was the signal
for an outburst of cheering and ap
plause. Yet the culmination of the
convention's work, coming in the form
of a committee recommendation, did
not draw even a pattering of hand
clapping. All elements in the convention were
intent on showing they were back of
La Follette's candidacy. After losing
a tight before the organization com
mittee for immediate formation of a
new party, tho socialists, led by Morris
Hillquit of New York, were the first
to second the Indorsement report.
The farmer-labor party elements
who backed Parley Christiansen in
the 1920 campaign, and who also had
urged the "third party ideu," then
rallied to the support of La Follette
as an Independent, Abraham Lefkow
Itx, New York, being their spokesman.

Baltimore, Md. The bodies of five

Have You This Habit?
By Margaret Morison
SO MANY times, so many nights,
When locked the door, and out the
My mother comes and looks at me
While I nm sleeping. Just to see
If I'm tucked in, and haven't thrown
The covers off, as I am known
To do sometimes ; If I am warm,
And safe from harm und fright and
I'm sound asleep, of course, and so
I cannot see, and yet I know.
So many times my mother stands
And smooths the pillows with her
And sees the quilt is folded right.
Yes, in the middle of the night
She conies and stands beside my bed
And holds her light above my head
To see if everything Is well.
Perhaps you wonder how I tell?
She steps so gently, walks so slow,
I cannot hear, and yet I know.
So many times our mothers creep
To where the little children sleep
And watch our breathing. Many a
We know the stairs our mothers climb,
For so our mothers keep on guard
All day and all night afterward.
Of course we cannot heur nor see;
We're sound asleep us we can be;
They gently come, and softly go;
And yet, some way, we somehow know.

Reflections of a
Bachelor Qirl
TDOBERTA HOOD had lived all her
life up to eighteen on her father's
old furm at Pleasant Valley. So when
It came time for her to begin to think
of her own financial future, she nat
urally turned to the city. And In two
months she w as one of five girls work
ing In the pressing room of the big
garment fuetory that supplied up-town
shops with children's fine dresses.
From eight to five she Ironed dainty
ruffles and tucks and plaits. The
other workers rarely spoke to her; all
went about their business in a dull, I
determined way ; at Intervals the man
ager looked In ; and ouce In two weeks
she drew her pay envelope. She be
came so used to the four mustard-colored
walls that she was no longer con
scious of anything beyond her Ironing
board and the shelf ubove.
Then one week she went home for
Sunday. It was April and the woods
were full of violets. Roberta Hood
picked a big box of violets and moss
to take to the city with her. When
she left for her work on Monday morn
ing the blossoms were so fragrant that
she took a few with her In u glass and
put them ou the shelf above her Iron
ing board. All that day as she looked
up at Intervals they seemed something
living amid the mechanical routine
of her motions. The head of the room
came over to take a sniff and said
that he came from the country, too.
On her next visit home Roberta
brought back some Ivy, and the five
workers took turns watering It and
washing down the glossy leaves.
Through this common Interest they be
gan to eat lunch together. Then they
started a window box, und finally they
achieved curtains, and a table where
they spread their sandwiches and bot
tles of milk.
The pressing room had become a
matter of Interest In the factory. Fi
nally, one day, the president of the
company strolled In. He was a pro
gressive man and he appreciated the
business value of the esprit de corps of
this little group. The upshot was u
clubroora for the workers of the fue
tory a room of their own freshly
painted, with geraniums, and a dis
reputable yellow cat that they had
adopted as their mascot.
To open the new club they had a
party. The head man In Roberta's
room sat next to her.
"This Is your doings!" said he.
"Aw, go on!" laughed Roberta.
But the next spring, when they were
married, Roberta put extra effort into
"fixing up" their rooms. She had
learned the value of the habit of bring
ing beauty Into everyday life.

VTOBODY Is quite so blase and so
phisticated as a flapper, who Is
Just recovering from a baby-grande
If a man Is looking for an Innocent,
simple, unsophisticated wife, with a
sweet childlike faith In men, he
should pick out a widow of over thirty
five, in these days.
When a brave, beautiful young girl
goes Into the world prepared to resist
Its temptations, It Is an awful dis
appointment to her, to discover that
a "temptation" is as hard to find In the
average business office us a pet fly in
a candy shop.
Oh, yes, every woman needs a hus
band, if only as an instrument of self
discipline to keep her from EVER
growing vain and self-satisfied.
The only perfect husbands are
widows' husbands. To recall tenderly
"a voice that Is stilled" Is no feat, be
side listening patiently to a voice that
is continually wondering why dinner
Isn't ready, where you keep the
matches, and what you paid for those
"fool shoes."
Heaven deliver us from the man
with a new motor-horn, the woman
with a new phonograph, the boy with
a new wulstle, and the neurotic with a
new complex 1
The foolish woman says "yes," and
robs love of Its uncertainty ; the tact
less woman says "no," and robs It of
hope; but the wise woman says noth
ingand keeps It simmering at Just
the right temperature.
The task of a modern girl's life Is
to keep her mother away from the
sort of movies that no woman over
thirty should see.
Why will a man worry more Intense
ly over throwing away an old tomato
can that "might have been used for
bait," than over losing his watch, burn
ing holes In the real lace curtains, or
spilling the glue on the Persian rugs?
