The Apaches will meet the Tuc

the clash will step into a tie with

chances of vicory reigning slightly
in favor of the Apaches.
The Badgers will take to the
floor somewhat handicapped by the
loss of the main scoring cog, Cor

game by doctor’s orders. The Bad -

Nation’s Flags at Half Mast for Calvin Coolidge
On all federal buildings at Washington, and in cities, towns and hamlets throughout the nation, flags are at
half mast for 30 days in honor of Calvin Coolidge, who now sleeps with his forefathers on aVermont hillside. PhotOß

WASHINGTON, D. C. (Autocast -
er) Jan. 20. —No President within
the memory of anyone now living
was so universally popular with all
ranks and kinds of people as was
Calvin Coolidge. It is probably true
that among people of all parties,
beliefs and callings, he had fewer
enemies and more genuine admir
ers than any President sines Wash
Here in Washington there is little
reverence for President as such.
They come and go, while the per
manent inhabitants of the District
of Columbia stay on their jobs.
But for once official Washington
was genuinely and deeply grieved
when the news came that Mr.
Coolidge was no more. And when
ever his name was spoken there was
some reference to Mrs. Coolidge who
endeared herself .to all classes of
people in Washington as few Pre
sidents’ wives have ever been able
to do.
People liked Mr. Coolidge because
he didn’t pretend to be anything
but what he was, just one of the
ordinary common people. They lik
ed him. too for his dry Yankee hu
mor, and it will be years before
Washington gets through repeating
humorous anecdotes about him.
One of the stories most frequent
ly told is that at a dinner which he
attended when Vice-President, a
lady sitting on his left said to him,
“I have made a bet that I can get
you to say three words.”
‘‘You lose,” replied Mr. Coolidge.
Those Few Words
A few years ago two or three
books were published which attack
ed the character of George Wash
ington. A newspaper man asked Mr.
Collidge what he thought of him.
He looked out of the south window
of his office toward the Washing
ton Monument.
“I notice his monument still
stands,” he said.
Frank W. Stearns of Boston, Mr.
Coolidge’s closest friend, tells a 1
story illustrating the late President’s
capacity for silence when he had
nothing to say. The day Mr. Cool
idge was nominated for Vice-Presi
dent he asked Mr. Stearns to take
a ride with him. The Governor of
Massachusetts said, “How do you
do?” when they met. They drove
fifty miles, till Mr. Coolidge said,
“guess it's time to turn back”. And
that, Mr. Stearns declares was the !
entire conversation of the 90-mile !
Mr. Coolidge was very fond of
walking around the streets of Wash- ;
ington and looking into the shop j
windows. He was seldom recognized, i
merely because people don’t exptet j
to rub elbows with the President of I
the United States on “F” Street, j
There was always a secret service!
man close by. One day Mr. Coolidge (
was hailed by a passing motorist i
from a distant state who wanted to j
know how to find the nearest road
to Baltimore. With great pains Mr.
Coolidge drew a map cn the back
of an envelope and gave it to the
tourist, who thanked him and drove
on, totally unconscious of the fact
that he had been guided by the
President of the United States.
A lady who was introduced to
President Coolidge at a White
House reception spoke of a speech

Columbia University Executive Appeals To United States
To Join In Movement To Bring End
To Economic War,.
ST. LOUIS, Mo., Jan. 20.—Sound
ing . a call for action in a nation
wide appeal to citizens, Dr. Nicholas
Murray Butler of Columbia Univer
sity, as President of the Carnegie
Endowment for International Peace,
was featured in a radio address by
tht League of Nations Association
at the opening of its tenth annual
convention in St. Louis. Dr. But
ler’s appeal was for the United
States to join in the movement to
end the present economic war which
is laying waste to the world’s trade
Dr. Butler said:
“There is no time to waste upon
generalities or formalities. The mod
| ern world is in the gravest crisis
' of its history. The duty and the
opportunity of the people of the
United States and of their govem
- ment are imperative and unexam
j pled. It is for them to decide, and
! quickly, whether they will dawdle
i and falter and do nothing, and thus
; permit the present economic and
1 j financial depression to continue to
'; its certain and disastrous end, or
1 i whether they will now take those
' steps, and insist upon their being
i taken, which alone can point the
i way to a happier and a better day.
l j “We must not shut our eyes to
: obvious facts. The great forward
movement' is for international un
derstanding and international co
operation to promote the peace and
the happiness of the world. Bitter
and relentless international war is
’; going on in the field of economics
and finance, with the result that
\ the trade of the world is strangulat
ed and is sick unto death.
Four Weapons
. j “This economic war is being car
l ried on with four weapons which
> are quite as destructive of peace and
i human happiness as are battleships
. and guns, airships and poison-gas.
L These are high tariff walls, trade
1 prohibitions and quotas, depreciat
i cd currencies and disrupted inter
national exchanges. These are the
. weapons which must now be re
. ■ nounced and displaced if this de
; structive and devastating war is to
j be brought to an end.
’ j “What are the specific things
■ which the American people now can
' and should do and insist upon be
■ ing done by their unhurrying gov
■ ernment?
1 “First, they should make it plain
that they demand from the coming
disarmament conference such con- J
elusions and agreements as shall ac-'
j tually disarm the nations for mili
, tary and naval war and not merely
; equalize their establishments and
equipments for the killing of men
and the devastating of cities and
towns under the guise of gaining!
"Second, we must not permit out- j
worn political formulas and tradi- j
tions and passwords to stand' in the <
way of the work of the coming j
economic conference. This confer- j
ence offers distinct and quick possi- I
bility of restoring the world's trade j
and industry, of again providing j
markets for our farmers and ourj
! industrialists, occupation for our
wage-workers and traffic for our 1
railways, by bringing about the re- j
duction or removal of the many
barriers to international trade '
which now everywhere exist.
“That is a pretty peer system of 1
protection to American labor and 1
American industry which sends from :
ten to twelve millions of unemploy- .
ed to walk the streets, which shuts
down factories and leaves our wheat
and our cotton to rGt in the fields.
That Senate Group
“Then we should insist that the
Senate of the United States leave off
its long continued misrepresentation
of American public opinion and
quickly consent to the ratification
on behalf of the United States to
the Permanent Court of Interna
tional Justice, which our govern
ment signed on December 9, 1929.
Such action would be in strict ac
cordance with American traditional
policy and in conformity with long
standing American leadership. It
has been in substance recommended
by every President since McKinley
and by every Secretary of State
since Josn Hay. Public opinion
tnroughout the land is, and long i
has been, overwhelmingly in sup
port of this action, but a small
group of opposing senators taking -
