one would have supposed that President franklin D Roosevelt couldnt wait to get to the next station and President Herbert Hoover would have had patience with the schedule Yet it was just the opposite President Roosevelt in sisted that his train go slow while Hoover enjoyed speed In 1924 President Calvin Cool Idge preferred eating in the diner instead of his private car One day he was munching his breakfast while the train was stopped at a station Soon a crowd milled around the dining car and a woman lifted her young son up to the window to stare at the President eating his breakfast Coolidge picked up a pancake waved it in the youngsters face and went on with his meal CHIEF JUSTICE Earl Warren had a distressing experience campaigning for Vice President in 1948 At one of the stops member
