A PERFECT BALANCE of Excellence and Good Taste
THE RESERVE OF AN ARISTOCRAT,
HE formal grace of perfect composition distinguish the Rolls-Royce. Yet, admirable as it appears, only those who know the principles that govern its manufacture can appraise it intelligently. Like a Greek bronze or a Renaissance facade, the Rolls-Royce delights those most who know it best.
THE ROLLS-ROYCE organization is not particularly interested in how or why other cars are made. It is not concerned with developing one feature at the expense of others. It does not, and it never will, make a car primarily to sell at a certain price. The single-track mind of this company works for this solitary purpose to build the best car in the world.
And only after the Rolls-Royce is built, sold and housed in your garage do you begin to feel the worth of the inflexible rule of excellence that governed its manufacture.
A year of flawless performance and you begin to appreciate it. A few years more of hard usage and you contemplate its repair bills, its upkeep and maintenance figures with complete satisfaction. Five years, six years, seven years—and at a point where most cars go to the second-hand dealer the Rolls-Royce is only fairly launched in your service.
And when you realize that a majority of the Rolls-Royces that tea-time brings to Pierre's, or that Monday night brings to the Metropolitan Opera, are more than ten years old . . . look about ten weeks old . . . run as smoothly as though they were ten days old . . . and have unnumbered years of perfect service yet to give . . . Then you will be ready and willing to admit that your Rolls-Royce has proved shrewd, safe investment in permanent transportation. And that your business caution and
common sense have been completely justified. For the Rolls-Royce does not wear out. It takes the years as it takes the hills-in its stride. And so widely is this known that all over the world, men and women who will not concern themselves with less than the best turn instinctively to this incomparable motor car.
You are invited to call at the Rolls-Royce showrooms for a hundred-mile trip that will prove a revelation in ease and comfort, in ability and performance. Or if you prefer to make an appointment by telephone a RollsRoyce will be sent to your address for inspection and trial. You are also invited to visit the RollsRoyce works at Springfield, Mass., whenever it is convenient for you to do so.
Any Rolls-Royce may be purchased with a moderate initial payment and the balance will be conveniently distributed.

Vol. IV. No. 19
The Weekly News-Magazine
November 10, 1924
Mr. Coolidge's Week
The Farmer's Union, The Federated Farm Bureau, the National Grange and the American Livestock Association received telegrams. President Coolidge presented his respects, asked them to consult their State organizations and invited them to suggest the next Secretary of Agriculture.
I Chairs and a table were moved out to the rear lawn of the White House. A notary public, a battery of camera men assembled. Mr. and Mrs. Calvin Coolidge appeared. The President sat, holding up a large envelope for secrecy's sake, and marked his ballot. Mrs. Coolidge, wearing a necklace of seven ivory elephants, did the same. The notary took their affidavits; the ballots were sent to Northampton, Mass.
At 10 p. m., Eastern time, on the eve of election, the President stepped before a microphone and advised all good citizens to do their duty on the following day.
Representatives of 44 advertising agencies, all members of the Coolidge and Dawes Advertising League Club, had cereal, bacon and eggs, buckwheat cakes, maple syrup and coffee in the state dining room of the White House with Mr. and Mrs. Coolidge. The advertising men were escorted by Colonel Rhinelander Waldo, the same who brought John Drew and other actors to the White House a week earlier. Said the President: "I can only promise you to continue those policies that have helped to make for prosperity and confidence."
All letters written to the White House are answered-or nearly all. Last week a group of Tammany Democrats offered to pay the President's expenses if he would speak in Manhattan. Their letter was not answered because it was "patently not in good faith."
Cameramen who missed Mr. and Mrs. Coolidge doing their ballotting induced them to go out on the White House lawn and do it over again. In
order not to violate the statute, however, the Coolidges refrained from mailing their second ballots.
General Plutarco Elias Calles arC rived in Washington and rode about under the protection of a troop of U. S. Cavalry from Fort Myer. One of his calls was on Mr. Coolidge. Next day General Calles returned to lunch with the President and with Secretaries Hughes and Mellon. He was attended by officials of the Mexican Embassy.
THE CAMPAIGN Election
As this issue of TIME goes on the presses, the election returns are still too incomplete for a significant analysis of the results.
Alarums and Excursion
Election day brought the campaign. to an abrupt demise.
Candidate Coolidge terminated his inactive campaign by an Election eve radio speech inviting voters to voteand ceased to be a candidate.
Candidate Dawes made a last stumping tour through the East, hopped back to Missouri, ended with a finale in Indiana-and ceased to be a candidate, having traveled 17,000 miles. Candidate Davis terminated his contest with a number of speeches in and about Manhattan. Like Coolidge, he made an Election eve radio address and ceased to be a candidate.
Candidate Bryan ceased to be a candidate.
Candidate La Follette followed a trail serpentine from Maryland through New York to Boston, to Pittsburgh, to Cleveland, attacking in turn the sugar trust, J. P. Morgan, the Standard Oil, the water power trust, "American Imperialism," Mellon Aluminum Interests-and ceased to be a candidate.
Candidate Wheeler went back through Illinois, Michigan, Ohio to Manhattan, completing his marathon speaking tour from coast to coast and back again-and ceased to be a candidate.
If a campaign is a dull thing to some of the onlookers, it is an exceedingly wearisome business for the candidates. But even for the candidates there is occasional relief.
Charles G. Dawes, peregrinating from stump to stump, halted at Hannibal. Under an ancient guide, he inspected the famous Tom Sawyer cave -a cave which Jesse James and his many men had also used.
"Where," asked the General with reverence, "did Tom Sawyer find the opening out on to the river bank?" "We're coming to it," answered the guide. "But right here is where he found Injun Joe's gold. . . . Yes, sir, the James boys hid right here in this here cave, and there's the very place they killed two of the detectives that came a lookin' for them. . . . And right here is where the James boys
buried them two detectives at, one atop the other."
The special committee of the Senate, headed by Senator Borah, and delegated to examine (TIME, Oct. 3) the receipts and expenditures for and against candidates, sat divided. In Chicago, Senators Borah and Shipstead held hearings. In Washington, Senators Caraway and Bayard did likewise,
The most important information elicited, however, had to do with the amounts received and expended by the several groups.
The Republicans reported collections of $3,742,962 through Oct. 30, of which amount $800,038 was returned to state organizations for which the National Committee had "acted as a collection agency" thereby bringing the Republican fund down to $2,942,962 and within the announced $3,000,000 budget.
The Democrats reported, up to Oct. 25, contributions of $552,368 and expenditures of $725,000.
The LaFollette ticket reported, up to the same date, contributions of $171,821 and expenditures of $157,122.
Mr. Borah, closing the hearings of his committee until later, philosophized: "And after the political consequences of the investigation have been dissipated, I think we can get at such facts as will be available to legislate on the subject in an intelligent way."
Plain speaking between relatives is proverbial. Last week, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Democrat, campaigning against Theodore Roosevelt, Republican candidate for Governor of New York, said of his cousin :*
"The Republican candidate for Governor of this state has a splendid War record, one of which every American can be proud. He has, on the other hand, a record in public office which is wretched.
"As a candidate for Governor, he has gone into the highways and byways of the state, promising anything and everything, contradicting himself, agreeing to do the impossible. He is indeed a 'promising' young man.”
*Theodore is a fifth cousin of Franklin D., once removed, as follows: Nicholas (1658)
Cornelius (1794) Theodore (1831) Theodore (1858) Theodore (1887)
where are the men, the issues, of that yesteryear? Then was the springtime of political hope. Now is the autumn of political fruition. But where are the snows whence sprang this herbage?"
Under the Old Presid. Warren Gamaliel Harding was President in that March of 1923, when the 67th Congress was passing and the prospect of the 1924 election was first discussed. He had swung the Limitation of Armaments Conference to rather more than expected success-a great achievement whose limitations were not yet perceived. However, the kindhearted, human Harding-cabineted by Secretaries Hughes, Mellon, Hoover, on the one hand; by Fall, Daugherty, Denby, on the other-had not found all his road smooth. Congress-the Congress with Senator Knute Nelson, Samuel E. Nicholson, La Baron B. Colt, Frank B. Brandegee, Wm. P. Dillingham-all missing now-had made him trouble. It he had had to veto; it had turned down his ship subsidy; and when he surprised it in its closing hours with a proposal in its closing hours with a proposal that the U. S. should enter the, World Court with reservations, the Senate had
refused to agree by a two to one vote. Indeed, the Senate had adjourned without the customary vote of thanks to the rather insignificant, the entirely silent, the "stern and rockbound" Vice President. Senator Heflin, the ebullient Alabaman, had prevented it because the Vice President had sustained a point of order of the learned senior Senator Lodge from Massachusetts and had, thereby, as Mr. Heflin put it, "participated in a rape of the rules of the United States Senate." But nobody cared greatly; even the Republicans were inclined to the opinion that they would "ditch this dumb Vice President" when they came to making up their ticket for 1924.
That same Congress was passing; and the presidential timber was beginning to put forth its springtime tendrils. Senator Oscar W. Underwood sailed for Europe, saying that he would consider his candidacy when he returned. Hopeful Senator Hiram W. Johnson went overseas-looking perhaps for ammunition to fire at President Harding's foreign policy. The name of Henry Ford was on the tip of many a tongue. William G. McAdoo was paving his path to the Democratic Convention. President Harding, bent on a deserved rest, turned south to Florida; and Senator William E. Borah, going home to Idaho, stopped at Akron, Ohio, to remark that a third party in 1924 was "not impossible, not even improbable."
On the front pages of the press, the subject of discussion was the President's World Court proposal, the suggestion that it might split the Republican Party. Interspersed with this matter were accounts of the President's vacationing in Florida-his trips aboard the Pioneer (the houseboat of Edward B. McLean), his foursomes at golf with Mr. McLean, Albert D. Lasker (the then Chairman of the Shipping Board), and Charles G. Dawes (the former Director of the Budget). Before the vacation was over, Harry M. Daugherty, Attorney General, caused a small furor by announcing that Mr. Harding's hat was in the ring for 1924.
Then came the final, fatal trip, the journey of President and Mrs. Harding westward across the Continent, leaving the White House in the process of renovation-not knowing that the mansion was being made ready for a new tenant. As Elbert H. Gary gave word that the steel mills were going to give up their 12-hour day, as Edward W. Bok offered a prize of $100,000 for a practical peace plan and announced a committee in charge of the award, including as a member one John W. Davis, quondam Ambassador to the Court of St. James-speeding west beyond the Mississippi, in sweltering June
