THOMAS R. MARSHALL, THE V. P.
All of tlie characteristics of Little Jeff, the comic page star, are embodied
in our little Tom Marshall, who has recently been re-elected Vice President.
He can talk more and say less than anonc in private or public life today, and
if he isn't funnv, it isn't because he doesn't want to be. He would rather be
a humorist than Vice President, and he would rather be Vice President than
anything else, except a humorist.
'It isn't as deeji as a well or as wide as a church door, but it will serve.'"
he telegraphed President Wilson when he learned that he had again been
elected Vice President. What Tom intended to convey, was: "We go in by
a whisker, but we're lucky at that."'.
During the campaign, Mr. Marshall cavorted over the country belittling
the Vice Presidency. "I am asking you to put me in eclipse for four more
veai-;."' he told one audience. "When I ask for your vote for the Vice
Presidency, you must suppose that ! have reached the stage where 1 don
