F Five Miinute Chats
on Our Presidents
By JAMES MORGAN'
(Copyright, 1930, by Jawnes Morgan.)
AN UNHAPPY PRESIDENT
1788--John Adams elected vice
1792-Rewlected vice president.
1797-Inaugurated second presi
dent, aged 61.
1800,-Concluded peace with
France. Defeated for acc
ond term by Jefferson.
1820-Member of Massachusetts
1826-July 4, died, aged 90.
PROBABLY John Adams was the
unhappiest man who ever sat in
the presidential chair. One of a dozen
unwanted presidents, who were taken
only because the men that were want
ed could not he elected, this humble
role emblittered ill the remaining days
of the proudest man In the line of our
It was hard enough for Adams to
be the understudy even of George
Washington, , while serving as vice
president. When he became president
it was Imaddening to his ego that he
should be expected to play second fid
(ie to Alexander Hamilton, the mas
ter spirit of the old governing .class,
left over front colonial times dnd
which controlled the Federalist party.
The president mnade the fatal mis
take of keeping Washington's cabinet,
which really had passed under the
control of Hamilton, who presumed to
direct the new administration, very
much as a Tammany boss puts a Tan
many mayor through his paces. As
Adams never had succeeded in ruling
himself it was impossible for another
to rule hinm.
Like iaristocracles everywhere, the
Federalistk were thrown into a state
of panic by the French revolution and
by the rise of the Jeffersonia demnoc
racy in our yet aristocratic repuiblic.
In their alarm they frantically rushed
through congress tAhe alien and sedi
tion acts, which became only mill
tttones about their necks, sinking their
party forever. Noit satisfied with
shutting the revolution out of the New
World, manny of thenm were for join
ing the monarchical coalition against it
in the 0(d WVorld. In an uproarious
quarrel with the absurd FrenchI direc
tory, the militia was called out and
WVashington summnonedl to cornmandl it,
after which the president astonished
the Jingoes by sudd(enly throwing them
over anid returning to a pacific policy.
As he had beetn the first minister
to Englandl, .John Adams wvas also -the
first presidetnt to take uip his residence
In Washington. As Mrs. 'Adams had1(
heen .the wife of the first Ameriean
envoy in Londlon she was also the first
mistress of the White House, If for
Ionly a few months. On the way from
P'hiladelphia she and the president
lost their trail in the wiIlderness untIl
a "straggling lhtek" camne to their as
'Thle (capitol was yet unfinished, and
out of a dlesolate 1hog, far off', the un
finished 'White House rose to view.
There wvas neither a fence nor a tree
about the structure, aind the presi
(lent's nearest neighbor dwelt half a
mile awvay. Mrs. Adams had a hard
time to get w~'od enough to keep her
family warm in the big, bleak man
sion, and she smiles at us still as her
letters tell us of howv she hung her
washing to dIry in the great east room.
After sitting at his desk until mitd
night hastily signing appointments, to
forestall his successor, Adams drove
out of WVashington at the dawvning of
the (liy of JTefferson's Inauguration.
He -had no siles to bestow on the
triumph of his rival. andl fewv enough
to light his own pathway, through his

For Your Meat Cars
When you see a Swift Refrig
erator Car going by in a train, it
seems a simple thing that it should
be carrying fresh meat up and down
Like most of the packer activities which
contribute. to your welfare, you are so used
to having this going on uninterruptedly,
day in, day out, throughout the year, that
you are likely to take it as a matter of course.
But it is not a matter of course. Every
car you see going by means long hours of
minute, scientific, painstaking care in prep
aration for what it is doing.
Every time a car comes in it is washed
out thoroughly with scalding water. If any
taint, any foreign matter, were present, this
would get rid of it. Even the meat hooks
are taken down from the racks and scalded
with water and live steam.
When the car is thoroughly cleansed we
put in 5,000 pounds of ice. But that
is only preliminary. It only cools the car
to the proper temperature. By the time
the car is moved over to receive its load,
this first ice is melted... .More is then
put in to keep the car cool.
Then the meat is hung on the sterilized
hooks and the load of food is ready for its
journey. It arrives as it leaves, clean,
fresh, wholesome, appetizing; and your
meat supply goes on unaffected by seasons
This is only a part of the service which
Swift & Company furnishes, at a profit
to itself so small--averaging a fraction of a
cent per pound on all products over a period
of years-that if the profit were handed on to
the consumer, it would make a difference of
less than a nickel a week in the meat bill of
the average American family.
Swift & Compnyn, Un S. A.
