accumulated such a majority in

acknowledged the 4T electoral votes

The-Chicago Daily News and the-

about one-twelfth of the total pre-

Roosevelt Will Bring Youthful
Atmosphere To White House
By KIRKE, SIMPSON
WASHINGTON, Nov. 8.-(/P)-
Franklin Delano Roosevelt will bring
to the White House, as thirty-second
President of the United States, some-,
thing of the atmosphere and outlook
It is to be discerned in his voice
and his buoyant temperament, his
smiling approach to most of the
problems of life, his eagerness to
have a part in the active, stirring
current of life and of public service
-an eagerness that overrode even
the handicap of infantile paralysis
when it fell upon him in mid-career.
Mr. Roosevelt will not be the
youngest man to be entrusted with
the presidency. That honor goes to
his distinguished fifth cousin, Theo-
dore Roosevelt, who was 42 when he
was inducted into office at the death
of President McKinley.
Only 51 Years Old
Franklin Roosevelt will be little'
more than entered on his fifty-first
year when he is inaugurated. Eleven
of the thirty men who have preceded
him in that high office-Tyler, Polk,
Fillmore, Pierce, Grant, Garfield,
Arthur, Cleveland, Theodore Roose-
velt, Taft and Coolidge-were as
young or younger when they took
Yet this De'nocratic Roosevelt, de-
spite his phyical handicaps, has
youthful qualities that will stand
him in good stead in the task he
Through his two administrations
as governor of New York, no word
has ever come from the executive
mansion of the arduous labors he has
endured. On the contrary, he reached
out eagerly to deal personally with
every phase of state activity.
Like his cousin, Franklin Roose-
velt will bring to the White House
also an atmosphere of family life it
has not known since the days of that
His own children are grown men'
and women, rearing families of their'
own except for the two younger lads,
who are well in their teens.
Was In Wilson Cabinet
The White House itself is an old
story both to the new President and
to Mrs. Roosevelt. They knew it long
ago, when she, herself a Roosevelt,
was favored among nieces of the late
President Roosevelt, and later when
they came to Washington to live for
nearly eight years during the Wilson
Franklin Roosevelt's office as as-
sistant naval secretary as then
just across the narrow strip of West
Executive Avenue, in the old War,
State, Navy building, perhaps 200
yards from the room where he is now
to sit as President.
It can hardly be doubted that Mr.
Roosevelt in those days was observ-
ingly conscious that he was himself
a humble factor in a careful process
of integration of conflicting party in-
terests and personalities with which
President Wilson began his term.
For Mr. Wilson built into his cab=
inet and "Little Cabinet" slate not
only a reflection of the broad out-
lines of his own political philosophy
and economic conceptions; but an
inter-relationship of factions and
groups within the Democratic major-
ities in house and senate designed to
facilitate a party legislative program.
Success Proved Before War
The success of his effort was at-,
tested by the legislative product of.
those first Wilson years, before the
world war intervened to divert the
course of peace time developments.
Young Roosevelt saw all that. As
state legislator and member of the
"little cabinet," he was an apt stu-
dent of practical politics. His own
primary and election campaigns this
year won him a reputation for po-
litical adroitness and understanding
among political observers. And as
president-elect and president he will
be called upon to exercise those qual-
ities to the highest degree.
The first test will come in selection
of his cabinet. To aid him as he sifts
the personal and political qualifica-
tions of those to whom he may offer
portfolios, Franklin Roosevelt will
have intimate memories of his first
official years in Washington, just 20
