DOING FULL SHARE FOR THE COUNTRY Mrs. Calvin Coolidge, Wife of Republican Nominee, Praises Her Sex. ÛISCUSSES HIGH LIVING COSTS Declares in an Interview That Present High Prices Can Be Reduced by Votes. By Estelline Bennett Mrs. Coolidge sat In a day coach a slew local train between Boston and Northampton and talked about her on husband, her children, the high cost of living and the domestic problem. The conductor and the braketnan stopped ^»s they went through the car to talk to her. She had made friends with them In her frequent Journeys back and forth to keep In touch with her children In school In Northampton and her husband at his duties in the state cnpitol. Talked. She knitted diligently as she During those trips she knits • II the winter stockings und sweaters for her two boys—John, aged four teen. and Calvin, twelve. "Too many people are afraid of work," she thinks is the fundamental reason for the high cost of living and the much discussed domestic problem. "I think the only thing the •f the country can do now," she said, with the quiet conviction of one who has thought It ail out, "is to vote for the men whom they think will muke the right laws and see that they forced. women are en They have done all they can In the home. I think the reason there Is so much sugar on hand now is be cause people are doing without It In their homes. Women Have Done Their Share. "American women have done, and •till are doing, their full share. They have sacrificed and saved and substi tuted and made over. But that Isn't enough. They'll have to vote the high cost of living down "Here In New England, where It Is a little hard for us to give up pie," she laughed at the tradition that ha? be come a joke, "we have learned to use all kinds of cheaper substitutes for butter and lard, and In my own house hold we have experimented with dif ferent fruit combinations to find thing we like and that will take the least sugar, make good pies, but we have found that blueberries take less sugar and the combination of apples and blue berries, half and half, Is delicious, quires less sweetening than apples and has more character than the blueber ries alone." ^ Knows No Domestic Problems. The domestic problem which Is clos ing homes all over the country and In creasing the hotel population. Is some thing of which Mrs. Coolidge thinks she has no personal, practical knowl edge. She never keeps hut one maid, and she never has been without one. If the fifteen years of her married life she has had only two. The first one she inherited with the furnished house Into which she and Mr. Coolidge moved when they were married and took with her when she moved. The second came when the first left to and live with her sister. There must ]>e a reason for their staying, It wns suggested to Mrs. Cool idge. and she thought possibly there were several, maid had something to do with It. Her's both have been American men old enough to have a sense of re sponsihlllty to theli work and Intelli gent enough to respond to reasonable courteous treatment. "A good many women who keep only one maid have trouble In their house holds because both mistress and maid, but chiefly the mistress, are afraid of ■work. A woman expects one maid to do the cooking and scrubbing and ev erything else and still be dressed up In block dress with white cap and apron, •ready to answer the doorbell any min ute. It Isn't humanly possible. I al ways answer my doorbell myself. I do It for two reasons. In the first place, there is no one else, and. In the second, I like to greet my friends at the door myself." some Apples must be tart to re go She thought the type of wo Have Home Orcheetra. Mrs. Coolidge is of medium height, with brown hair, hazel eyes that hold a good deal of merriment and a quick sense of humor, and her children have a little orches tra. very At home she Mrs. Coolidge plays tlie piano. John the violin, and Calvin, after ■Iderahle discussion. In which he fa vored a bass drum, compromised banjo-mandolin. They play hymns and war songs usually—the hymns they learn in the Congregational church anil Hunday School of Northampton. They avoid difficult and unfamiliar music because the object of the orcheswn Is entirely recreational and not educa tional. That Is a part of Mrs. Cool fdge's educational policy—that chil dren rhould work when they work and p'.ny when they play and keep the two separate.

Cox s boasted labor record has been shattered by his own official act. Claiming that he hod "never pressed a soldier Into an Industrial controver sy." the record of, his action as gov ernor of Ohio In mobilizing the Na- I tlonal Guard of this state for service In the steel strike of 1919 has been produced In flat contradiction of his assertlon. Not once, but on two occasions the Ohio guard, ut an expense of $23, 000 to the people of Ohio, cnlled into service and sent to Akron and held In readiness for action in nearby Canton. The question Is not as to the merits of the strike or as to the necessity for the presence of the guard within strik ing distance of Canton, but concerns wholly the truthfulness of Governor Cox's statement, obviously made to win favor among the workingmen. The facts as brought out In the speech of Republican State Chairman George H. Clark, formally opening the campaign at Columbus, are as follows: Ordered Guard Out Twice. After the steel strike had progressed for some days, with more or less disor der, Governor Cox on September 28, 1919, suddenly ordered the mobilization was bloody bond which Is a first lien upon M - h 3$5DOI I re \ CM r -Wtv i m » A 4 ii ^7" \ m ■!_. 1 ? ^ . - V ' V READ tL CERTIFICATE /AUTHENTICITY 9 IS MISS ALICE VERLE r . , , 1 has certified all of the official Labora tory Models of the New Edison that are now in our store.

Chairman Clark in his Columbus ] speech displayed to his audience a pho tographlc copy of Special Order No. 52 Issued from the Adjutant General's de partment of the State of Ohio, dated Columbus, October 25, 1919, which des I Ignated certain officers for immediate active service and paragraph 4 of which reads : bis I sary ,0 BSSMnh,e a sufficient number of sta te troops at Akron.

Of course It Is not to l e expected that workingmen elsewhere In the United States would he familiar fense with the circumstances, and It was for that reason that State Chairman Clark ; time In his speech stressed the necessity for the people all over the country to he Informed that Governor Cox's assertion I re were I I that he "never pressed a soldier Into | an industrial controversy" was abso- ! lately at varlence with the truth.
