    29TH PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, 1921-23

    CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN

    DEFEATED DEMOCRAT JAMES M. COX IN THE ELECTION OF 1920

    U.S. SENATOR, 1915-21

    MASTER MASON

    Warren G. Harding bought the "Marion Star" in 1884. He was an extremely handsome man. In fact, his good looks may have been largely responsible for his being elected to the White House. Unfortunately his presidency was less than stellar. His administration is now considered one of the most corrupt in history, gaining particular notoriety for the Teapot Dome Scandal. Harding died in office while on a national tour. He was succeeded by his Vice President, Calvin Coolidge.

    QUOTES

    "I don't know much about Americanism, but it's a damn good word with which to carry an election." --Warren G. Harding

    "I don't know what to do or where to turn in this taxation matter. Somewhere there must be a book that tells all about it, where I could go to straighten it out in my mind. But I don't know where the book is, and maybe I couldn't read it if I found it." --Warren G. Harding

    "I am not fit for this office and never should have been here." --Warren G. Harding

    "I would like the government to do all it can to mitigate, then, in understanding, in mutuality of interest, in concern for the common good, our tasks will be solved." --Warren G. Harding

    "He writes the worst English that I have ever encountered. It reminds me of a string of wet sponges; it reminds me of tattered washing on the line; it reminds me of stale bean soup, of college yells, of dogs barking idiotically through endless nights. It is so bad that a sort of grandeur creeps into it. It drags itself out of the dark abysm of pish, and crawls insanely up the topmost pinnacle of posh. It is rumble and bumble. It is flap and doodle. It is balder and dash." --H.L. Mencken

    "The only man, woman or child who wrote a simple declarative sentence with seven grammatical errors is dead." --E. E. Cummings, on the death of Harding

    --------------------

    "Warren G. Harding was not a particularly intelligent man. He liked to play poker and golf and to drink and, most of all, to chase women; in fact, his sexual appetites were the stuff of legend. As he rose from one political office to another, he never once distinguished himself. He was vague and ambivalent on matters of policy... After being elected to the U.S. Senate in 1914, he was absent for the debates on women's suffrage and Prohibition--two of the biggest political issues of his time... He was, most historians agree, one of the worst presidents in American history." --Malcolm Gladwell

    "Many people who looked at Warren Harding saw how extraordinarily handsome and distinguished-looking he was and jumped to the immediate--and entirely unwarranted--conclusion that he was a man of courage and intelligence and integrity. They didn't dig below the surface." --Malcolm Gladwell

    --------------------

    FREEMASONRY
    "The largest and most widely established fraternal order in the world. The masons' guilds were originally restricted to stonecutters, but with the completion of the building of the cathedrals in the 17th century, and especially in England during the Reformation, they began to include as members, men of wealth or social status. The guilds thus became societies devoted to general ideals, such as fraternity, equality, and peace, and their meetings became social rather than business occasions. The Masonic ideals of religious toleration and the basic equality of all people were in keeping with the growing spirit of liberalism during the 18th century. One of the basic tenets of the Masonic orders throughout the English-speaking world has been that religion is the concern solely of the individual. The earliest of the U.S. lodges, founded by authority of the Grand Lodge of England, were the First Lodge of Boston, established in 1733, and one in Philadelphia, established about the same time. By the time of the American Revolution, about 150 lodges existed in colonial America. American Freemasons today make up about three-fourths of the total number of all members throughout the world; world membership exceeds 6 million." -- Funk & Wagnalls New Encyclopedia
