Colonel Coupal, on duty at the White House during the Coolidge administration, and a personal friend of the former president. said the candidacy would follow a decisive expression of public washes to draft him to meet the economic situation. The newspaper quotes Col. Coupal as saying Mr. Coolidge did not intend to remove himself unconditionally from the presidential field w’hen he issued his "I do not choose to run” statement. Instead. Colonel Coupal said, he merely wished, in compliance with his sense of justice, to cast aside any advantage hi^ position mip-ht give and permit th/ people to choose another man if they preferred. Mr. Coolidge, the Colonel said, was "grieved and disappointed” when his statement was interpreted as a final refusal to accept another term. Colonel Coupal said "President Coolidge would have loved to be the first third-term president of the U. S. He was not disgusted w-ith political office as some have intimated, but was intensely interested in carrying on the program and policies of his administration and developing other policies he bad studied for further improvement of economic conditions.” gav< ly after IO a rn., having summon-) ed attorneys to his court room at, the last minute apparently desiring to avoid the turmoil of crowds that attended yesterday s session ( In September Only Michael Ahern w as pres-1 ent to represent the gang chief, and he took no part in the proceed- IN DOMINION CITY > music The Puritan Jumbo orchestra, I producer of fine harmony root tickling tempo and catchy melodies. will parade the streets in "ngs"Judge Wilkerson gave a'^ brief ; Will Not Resume Their | the downtown section at 9 p. rn. *    6    ...    I    'for a half hour.
