NEW YORK, N. Y. — Dec. 4, 1928 — I like this part of Mr. Coolidge’s message best: “Both parties in Nicaragua were pleased with the outcome of their election and have asked for the marines again next time. But I did not commit myself.” Yes, I think I would let Hoover contract ‘em for that one.
The marines will certainly be tickled to know they can get booking four years ahead. They have always just had to pick up little wars from day to day. Now they can kinda look ahead and plan, and have a permanent address.
If they satisfied both parties after the election, I believe the Democrats will sign ‘em up right here at home, for November, 1932, follies.
I will get deeper into the message tomorrow.
