Jan 6 ii pi—Calvin Coolidge. the thirtieth President of the United Stale:    will rest tomorrow beside his father in Granite Hills. His burial, on a cold hillside of Plymouth, Vt , where his ancestor? were buried, will be as he wished It, without undue solemnity and without preten.se. The former President, in riea’h as in life, was a svmbol of the simple node of life which had been his rode. which had characterized his r\pry act. from obscure lawyer to th'’ Presidency. rt was the wish of his widow that hLl burial would be the sam unostentatious, unmarked by pomp or i remonious circumsfnrre. Harry Ross, hts secretary and perhaps his only real confidant outside his immediate family, raid tv' would he buried with a!) thr simplicity that marked his life and the Jives of his arrestors. It was Mrs Coolidge'* u».h. Rose .'rid. "that the usual grandeur b absent from these rites she would have him buried as stmpiy as was his mother, his father and his son, It was his way." Calvin Coolidce might lias*' been buried in Arlington cemetery, to rest alongside the great of th*’ nation. Mr*. Coolidge, who knew him best. chose for his final resting p'sc" the cemetery in the hills that are white through the w inter and green through the summer. HH ancestor*. "for generations b^ck” had been buried there. Funeral services will be at the Fd-uards Ccngrenational Church, where < nntfniKd on Ult Pag" Sprout s Refusal Paved Coolidge Path to White House Coolidge Body To Lie in State NORTHAMPTON, Mass., Jan. « 'UP' The body of Calvin Coolidge, 30th President of the United State*, will lie in sta'e tomorrow in the simple town church which hr attended in life. For an hour, friends, neighbors and distinguished visitors from out of town will be permitted a last look at the man who led them through their most prosperous tears. Calvin Coolidge became the thirtieth President of the United States only because a Chester man .'topped aside and permitted Fate to name the New Englander as Chief Executive. The year was 1920, when the Republican National Convention was being held in Chicago. Governor William C Sproul, Chester s most famous son. was placed in nomination for the Presidency by the Keystone delegation and he picked up some • upport from other stater The balloting kept on for several candidate without definite results Then came the famous telephone rail from Philadelphia, with Boles Penrose on one end. and a party power on the other. ' Harding," said Penrose and Harding it was Then the delegates, tired and harried from the nerve-wracking balloting for the Presidential nomination, turned to the Vice-presidency. The ever popular Governor Sproul retried the logical choice. A delegation of lenders went to Sprout's suite and offered him the nomination. Without hesitation, Governor Sproul declined, He thanked them for .the high honor, but stated he did not believe he wanted the second highest position on the tGat gesture, Governor Sproul turned down the Presidency of the United States, for the Harding-Coohdge ticket was easily elected and when President Harding died in August. 1923. Vice-President Coolidge was sworn in na Chief Executive. Thus Governor Sproul befame possibly the only man in American history to beeline the Presidency of the United States.
