Coolidge Ends
Third Year Of
Executive Life
(By Associatd Press)
PAUL SMITH'S, New York, August
2.-Three years as chief executive of
the Republic were completed by Presi-
dent Coolidge tonight.
It was in the early hours of August
3, 1923, that Mr. Coolidge took the
oath of office by the dim light of a
lamp in the Plymouth, Vermont farm-
house before his father as a justice of
the peace soon after the sudden
death of President Harding.
No word of comment was made by
him today, however, on the anniver-
sary as be approached the beginning
of his fourth year as the chief exe-
cutive. Government business occupied
him as it does daily during his vaca-
tion in the mountains and there was
no indication that he would depart
from that program tomorrow.
The Rev. S. McDowell, Methodist
Episcopal preacher, of Washington,
D. C., and Mrs. McDowell were quests
of the President and Mrs. Coolidge at
White Pine camp this noon.

Israel Zangwill, who was perhaps
the greatest of contemporareous com-
mentators on Jewish life, being an ar-
dent Zionist and founder of the Inter-
national Jewish Territorial organiza-
tion, made his literary reputation with
a novel, "The Children of the Ghetto,"
in 1892. He was the author of many
Jewish plays, some of which were
produced in New York in Englishrand

February 14, 1864, spending his early
childhood and school days in Bristolt

Class To Visit
Paper Plant Of
"Detroit News"
Escorted by Howard P. Jones of the
Journalism department, the classes in
journalism will visit the Detroit
News plant this week. The exact date
for the trip has not yet been arranged.
Detailed attention will be given par-
ticularly to the editorial Department,
according to Mr. Jones. The trip
through the plant will be made under
the direction of Lee A. White, asist-
ant editor of the News.
"The students will have a chance to
compare metropolitan newspaper or-
ganization and methods wit hthose of
a smaller city," Mr. Jones said. "Not
long ago they had the opportunity of
going through the Ann Arbor Times-
News which has a very complete or-
ganization and an ample plant equip-
ment for a city the size of Ann Arbor.
,Now they will view a similar organi-
zation on a larger scale."
The class in the "Community News-
paper" will make several trips to small
town newspaper plants within the
next week.

All Catholic Churches Remain Open
During Day For Prayer And
(By Associated Press)
MEXICO CITY, August 2.--Presi-
dent Calles has rejected the proposal
for a truce in the religious contro-
versy made by the Mexican episco-
A statement to the Associated Piresi-
dent by the President says:
"This executive has already made
known its opinion regarding the r-
ligious situation. Replying to the
episcopate's statement, I will say that
the federal government will only limit
itself to act with the required energy
Ito enforce the laws of this country."
Notwithstanding the great parade
of the regional Confederation of Labor,
which required two hours to pass a
given point, the day was as peaceful a
one as the capital ever has known.
While the marchers passed the pal-
ace, where President Calles, surround-
ed by his ministers stood waving his
handkerchief in answer to the cheer-
ing members of the confederation, the
faithful were kneeling in prayer in
various churches, beseeching an
mnelioration of the situation brought
about b ythe government putting into
force its new religious regulations.
All the Catholic churches, without
priests at the altars, were open for
prayer and meditation, except the
great cathedral and several of the
downtown places of worship past
which the parade made its way. The
doors of these were closed in the fear
that some untoward event might oc-
Dispatches from all parts of the re-
public indicate that tranquility pre-
vailed Sunday everywhere. Al-
though there was tense feeling at
I some places, no actual trouble de-
veloped. The government had made
strong military preparations in ad-
vance to suppress disorder promptly.
The expression of willingness to ar-
range a truce with the government
was made exclusively to The Asso-
ciated Press by the episcopate. It
was suggested that it should run for
a reasonable length of time to give
the people a chance to vote on thi sit-
uation growing out of the religious
j controversy. Meanwhile, the kpdsco-
pate would have the new religious
'regulations and the "antireli gious
persecutions" suspended.
"On its part," says the statement,
"the episcopate is willing to give a
solution to the conflict that may save
public liberties and at the same time
not be unbecoming to the govern-

"The episcopate," it continues, "de-

as yet. However, we are conident,
and we desire that President Calles
may not be absolffutely deaf to the

One of the secret service operatives
asserts that he was present at meet-
