Two Weeks’ Stay at Ply
mouth, Vt. ? With Wife and
i Son Believed Considered.
- Th ose close to President Coolidge
are of the opinion that shortly after
he makes his acceptance speech next
Thursday he will leave Washington
for a brief vacation. It is thought
he and Mrs Coolidge and their son
will go to Plymouth. Vl., and spend
a fortnight with the President’s father
"t the old Coolidge homestead in that
picturesque village.
This, however, is not definite. Fre
ctuently during the present summer
President Coolidge has answered in
quiries about his going away by say
ing that he and Mrs. Coolidge found
the Washington summer climate and
the White House and grounds to
their liking, and that he would re
main here, except possibly for a very
short trip late In the summer. There
have been many who have gone to
the President during the present hot
spell and urged him to change his
mind. They endeavored to convince
him that his health and that of his
family required that they seek a
cooler climate, if for only a week or
so. The change would be beneficial,
they also argued.
Stearns Home Offered.
Frank W. Stearns, business man
of Boston and intimate friend of the
3 resident, who spends most of his
time at the White House and who
has a largo Summer home at Swam
fr'cot, Mass., has persistently urged
tlie President to take over that es
tablishment and enjoy the cool and
comfort afforded by it for at least a
month. Secretary - of War Weeks,
who has a country home situated
high up in the hills of New Hamp
shire and which was once visited by
President Harding, has offered this
place to the President as an Ideal
• pot to relax and rest.
White House officials today stated
that the matter will be settled within
Hie next day or so. They expect the
3’resident to say then whether he is
going away for a vacation and where
he intends to go.
With his acceptance speech out of
the way, and no important matters
of state needing immediate consid
eration, the President has berore nun
ceveral days of comparative ease.
During the two or three weeks he
las been engaged in the preparation
of his speech, the daily routine busi
ness of his office has accumulated
and it will require several days of
close application to clear his desk
of this. After that he win nau
t’me to push his chair back and take
things easy, so to speak. At least
lie will have more time to give to
the campaign and to the receiving
cf callers.
The regular meeting of the cabinet
was called this morning, but with
s veral members out of the city there
was little of Importance pending, ami
Mr. and Mrs. Coolidge arranged to
attend for a while the have ball
game later in the day for the White
House championship between the
newspaper men and photographers
assigned to the executive offices.
Hr. Harry tv Bernton of the George
town Medical School addressed mem
bers of the Monarch Club at a lunch
eon in the City Club yesterday on

■■Successful treatment of the disease
lias increased.” he said. "Striking a
general average of those treated last
year, about 40 per cent were cured.

and the remaining s,'i per rent were
benefited in varied degrees."
Following the address. A. C. Kiemer

entertainment at the country home
of the national president of the Mon
arch Club, H. S. Umohundro.

Special Squad of 20 Men Or
ganized to Break Up
In an effort to pat a atop to speed
ing and reckless driving In .Wash
ington, Commissioner Oyster an
nounced today that a special squad of
20 motor cycle policemen In civilian
clothes has been organized.
Although this squad has been at
work since August 2, they have car
ried on their campaign quietly with
no intimation of their activity until
today. ,
The plan is to have 29 motor cycle
men go on duty every other day in
civilian attire, working the In-be
tween days In uniform. Figures ob
tained from Maj. Sullivan today show
that nearly twice as many arrests
for speeding have been made on the
days when the men were not In police
uniform. The record follows;
With the men in civillon clothes.
August 2, 61 arrests; August 4, 74 ar
rests; August 6. 69.
With the motor cycle men in uni
form—August 3, 36 arrests; August 5,
48 arrests, and August 7, 48.
Commissioner Oyster indicated that
the reason which prompted the adop.
tion of this plan was a belief that
some drivers comply with the speed
limit when they see an officer in
uniform, but will step on the gas If
one is not in sight. Following out
this line, it was decided to put some
of the men in civilian clothes, so that
the motorist who takes a chance
when he thinks he is not being fol
lowed would be unable to tell whether
or not an officer was nearby.
Capt. Oyster expressed the belief
that fast driving is responsible for
many accidents and that the motor
cycle squad will make every effort to
force compliance with the speed
