Girl Must Alto Take Up Her
Grand Aunt’s Fireworks Cru
sade Before She Gets Coin.
WATERTOWN, N. Y., Feb. W.—
Because Miss Elizabeth Joan Cool
idge, daughter of Thomas J. Cool
idge, Jr., of Philadelphia, N. Y.,
near hero, shows no disposition to
meet the wishes of her great aunt
and lead a movement against the
use of fireworks on the Fourth of
July, trouble looms for the executors
ana trustees of the estate of the
late Asenath Carver Coolidge, fam
ous humanitarian.
Miss Coolidge, a sprite of a girl
of sixteen, is now a high-school
student. She is chief legatee,
named in the peculiar will of, the
authoress, who died at Arlington
Heights, Mass., November 26, 1915,
leaving an estate consisting entirely
of personal property.
Wider the terms of this will,
which was admitted to probate in
1916, the executors, after paying
debts and funeral expenses of the
testatrix, were directed to turn over
books, copyrights, manuscripts and
matter pertaining to them to
Elizabeth Joan, together with all
money deposited in banks, invest
ments, or accruing from royalties
A condition was Imposed, how
ever, and it is this which Is compli
cating ultimate disposition of the
The condition is that Cool
idge must continue the humanitar-
ian work carried on for many years
by her great-aunt against the use
of fireworks in the celebration of
the Fourth of July and against
waging of war between and among
nations, and that she shall pre
pare herself for that work by en
tering Some good college or uni
versity and graduating from a
course in < its humanitarian de
“As iobri as she is property
qualified for the humane work and
with the understanding that she
will write or cause to be written
the true history of my work for
Independence Day reform and the
better men of the world,” the will
states, the property shall be turned
over to this young woman.
To be sure there are several
years ahead of her before she can
possibly complete such an educa
tion, but the trouble confronting
the executors is that she 'is show
ing none of the inclinations of Miss
Asenath Carver Coolidge.
Is Modem Girl.
Instead she is Just a decidedly
modern lltttie girl, whose thoughts
are of school, of house parties and
the like.
To be sure, there is an option
which provides that if she falls to
qualify, then another grandniece
moot willing to take up the work
outlined is to have the property.
But there Is no other grandniece
exhibiting any greater disposition
to carry on a campaign against fire
works and against war than is
Miss Elisabeth Joan.
“What to do, what to doT” ask
the executors and attorneys.
