THE TIMES: FRIDAY, MARCH 4, 1921 COOLIDGE WON FAME IN STRIKE Washint&on Calvin Coolidsre is the first Massachusetts man to hold the office of vice president since Henry Wilson served in the second Grant administration nearly half a century ago. His advent into office adds to the prominence of his state in na tional eovernment affairs for it is re garded as almost certain tha Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, will be again chosen as Republican leader in the Senate, and Hep. Frederick H. Gillett as sepaker of 'the House. Should Mr. Gillett succeed himself, a Massachusetts man will preside over each branch of congress, a most unusual coincidence. More unusual still is the fact that both Mr. Coolidge and Mr. Gillett coBBe from the same Congressional district, Northampton, the home of the vice president being in the same district as Springfield, the home of the speaker. Both men are graduates of Amherst college. i Vice President Collidge is entering upon his first service in the field of national politics, but for 20 years he ; has been activa in the political ser- vice of his state, rising from member i ship in the council of his city to gov ernor of the commonwealth. It was "his intensive study of af : Airs of state that first attracted to him the attention of prominent Re ! publican leaders, notably the late Sen ' ator W. Murray Crane of Massachu- setts. For a number of years they ; watched the development of his ca ; reer with a view to directing him into J the natnonal political arena. Their i opportunity came wta the spectac- utar Boston police strike, during his ! first term as Governor, attracted na , tlon-wide attention. The crisis which was precipitated by the strike, according to these j friends, merely revealed the powers i and courage of the man, and they i frankly and openly seized the oppor . tunty to press for him claims for the ; Republican Presidential nomination ; at Chicago last Jurje. They pointed ' out that as councilor in his home city I and later as city solicitor and mayor, ma a member of both branches of the ! legislature including a term as pres- ' frtart.t ""' V. Caontr.

Probably the most attractive part : of Mr. Coolidge is his home life. Ever I since his marriage 15 years ago, to : Miss Grace Goodhue, of Burlington, Vt., a University of Vermont grad ; uate whom he met as a .school teach- er in Northampton, he has lived a '. quiet, modest life, most of the time in the shadow of -Smith College in a ! house which he has rented for $32.50 ; a month. , "Save, no matter what your salary I may be," has always been his motto and, as he has enjoyed beyond the in come earned in public office only ' meagre returns from his law prac tice because of pressure of public du : ties, he has been obliged and content to live simply. There are two boys in their early "teens, but all do their bit, even to mowing the lawn. During Mr. Coolidge's official resi dence at Boston he and Mrs. Coo lidge lived in apartments at a hotel. while the boys have been away at school. In dress, too, Mr. Coolidge has been not extravagant, although always immaculately attired and not given to use of the threadbare, what ever the popular impression to the contrary may be. His coming to Washington means the presence of a man who, his friends say, personifies the best of American standards, not given much to social life, perhaps, but a thor ough student, a 'hard worker and a clear-beaded, solid American, New First Lady Of Land Knows Meaning of Work Washington Florence Kling Hard ing, the new First Lady of the Land, possesses an unusual degree of pluck and outspokeness. She has ideas of her own on many subjects and she does not hesitate to speak her opin ions straight out from the shoulder. Those who work for her count her a kindly and delightful mistress, but they know that any delinquency will call dcuxn a reprimand they will not soon forget. On occasions she has been seen shaking a forefinger at her husband but of course nobody knows what that all is about. All her life Mrs. Harding has been a determined and tireless worker, not only in the details of her household, but in the broader field of business and community welfare. She comes of fighting blood, her father. Amos Kling, having been a rugged power of ;he pioneer days of Marion. She was born there, and .although in her girl hood her parents attained to moder ate means they were not the sort who lean to extravagance. When she married Mr. Harding in 1891, his newspaper, the Star, was not yet out of the woods financially and she went to work in its business department. She applied herself to advertising and circulation problems with an eye for efficiency all along the line. She watched the original pur chases of print paper and materials and she stood at thep resses and gave instructions to the newsboys daily be fore they started on their rounds with the finished product. It is said of her in Marion that when she became, the wife of the struggling young editor she told her friends she expected to make him president some day, and it is known that at some of the most discourag ing stages of the pre-convention cam paign last year it was she who insist ed most vigorously that the fight be continued. During life strenuous days when thousands were marching to the front porch of the Harding residence on Mt. Vernon avenue, she was the most active figure about her husband's headquarters. She was beside him every time he spoke at home or away; she shook hands with as many men and women as did he; and she was in and out of his offices from morning until nigh':, rounding up details ana giving him advice on all serioup ques tions before him. ANOTHER VICTIM OF jj man n mnr nnirn! Dublin Another victim, of the Sinn Fein's relentless warfare against "spies" was found near Curragh Clough today. He was a farmer who had been taken from his home by a band of armed, masked men and shot to death, upon his breast was pinned the following note: "A convicted spy. Informers be ware.
