We say this because, before the discovery of Bayer Aspirin, most "pain" remedies were advised against by physicians as being bad for the stomach; or, often, for the heart. And the discovery of Bayer Aspirin largely changed medical practice. Countless thousands of people who have taken Bayer Aspirin year in and out without ill effect, have proved that the medical findings about its safety were correct. Hemcmber this: Genuine Bayer Aspirin is rated antong the fastest methods yet discovered for the relief of headaches and all common pains and safe for the average person, to take regularly.

On that day just 50 years ago Thomas Andrews Hendricks, vice president of the United States, died at his home Id Indianapolis, Ind. Now, of course, It tins become a standard Joke that the vice president, so far as his authority and powers are concerned. Is a most unofficial In our important national government Hendricks was probably an abler man than the majority of his predecessors had been, yet the same obscurity, which had engulfed the others when they were elected, had been bis lot when he went to Washington He as vice president with Grover Cleveland. bad been In public life for 40 years, beginning with his election to the Indiana legislature In 1845. In 1850 and again two years later he was elected to congress. Defeated for the governorship of Indiana in I860, he was elected to the United States senate In 1SC3 and served there until 1SG9. In the Democratic convention of 1SG8 he ran second to General Hancock In the balloting for President, but both lost out to Horatio Seymour. Again a candidate for governor of Indiana In the same year, Hendricks was deand feated, but In lf72 he staged a come-bacwas elected. In the 1S76 Democratic convention he was again a strong contender for the Presidency, but when Samuel J. Tllden was nominated Instead, Hendricks received 730 out of the 738 votes cast for vice president The Democrats were defeated that year, but eight years later they won and Hendricks became vice president He died eight months after Inauguration, but his death while occupying that office was not unique, for "four previous vice presidents had died before finishing out their terms. Why, then, was his passing a significant event? The answer to that question lies In the result of his death and an event which followed soon afterwards. The Constitution of the United States provides that "In case of the removal of the President from office or of his death, resignation or Inability to discharge the powers and duties of the said office, the same shall devolve on the vice president ; and the congress may, by law, provide for the case of removal, death, resignation or Inability both of the President and vice president declaring what officer shall then act as President, and such officer shall act accordingly until the disability be removed or a President shall be elected." Up to the time of Hendricks' death, however, the congress had not seen fit to pass a law providing for the case of removal, death, resignation or Inability both of the President and vice president and this despite the fact that four vice presidents had already died while in office and one had resigned. If at any of these times when the office of vice president was vacant, the President then In the White House had died, resigned or been unable to discharge the duties or powers of his office the nation would have been without a Chief Executive. Of course, the congress could have passed a law providing for his successor provided it was In session. But what If It had adjourned? Since the President alone has the power "on extraordinary occasions to convene both houses or either house," who could have called the congress together to choose the new Chief Executive? Although the need for providing for such con tingencies had been apparent for nearly 75 years. nothing was done about It until Vice President Hendricks died in 1885. Then the congress acted to avert the potential, dangers which might result from the loss of both the President and vice On January 19, 1886, It passed a president law providing for a Presidential succession In case the vice president could not serve. Under Its terms the secretary of state would become President In case he, too, would be unable to serve, the next In line would be the secretary of the treasury and so on down the cabinet secre postmaster-genera- l tary of war, attorney-general- , secretary of the navy, secretary of the Interior, secretary of agriculture, secretary of commerce and secretary of labor. Under the provisions of the Twentieth amend ment to the Constitution (the "lame duck amend ment" adopted February 6, 1933), still further safeguards In the matter of Presidential succes sion were added to the law of the land.

Briefly told for president-elec- t would become President Considering the Importance of the office which the vice president may be called upon to fill, it Is a curious anomaly of our government that bis position Is so lightly regarded and that so little care Is usually taken In filling that position with an outstanding man. In the early days of the republic, wjien the two men receiving the high est electoral vote were chosen President and vice president, respectively, there was little room for complaint about the caliber of the men who served as vice president It was taken as matter of course that the vice president would become the new President when the Chief Execu tlve under whom he served had filled his allotted time in the White House. Thus Vice President John Adams succeeded President George Wash' William R. Kmq ' Ington and Vice President Thomas Jefferson suc ceeded President John Adams. But the break from this tradition came when Aaron Burr was vice president under Jefferson. Burr served one term, then became involved in the scheme which led to his trial for treason and, as a result, George Clinton was chosen vice presi dent when Jefferson was elected for his second term. Again precedent was Ignored, for Instead of Clinton succeeding Jefferson as president, that honor went to Jefferson's secretary of state, James Madison. Clinton, however, was ed vice president but died In 1812 after serving only three years of bis term. During the last year of Madison's first term as President the United States had no vice president When Madison was Elbridge Gerry became vice president. He also died in office after serving only a little over a year and the United States was again without a vice presi dent this time for nearly three years. So James Madison was the only President in our history during whose administrations two vice presi dents died In office. The next vice president was Daniel D. Tomp kins who served both terms under Monroe, but when Monroe retired, Tompkins did not become his heir to the high office. Again It went to a secretary of state, John Qulncy Adams. Adams' vice president was John C. Calhoun of South Carolina, who was again chosen for the office when Andrew Jackson became Chief Executive. Thus the South Carolinian had the honor of oc cupying that office under two Presidents of oppo- site political faith. But Calhoun did not serve out his term under Jackson. He quarreled with "Old Hickory" and In 1832 the vice presidency was again vacant, this time because of a resignation, the first and only one thus far In our history, Instead of a death. When Jackson was President, Martin Van Buren, his former secretary of state, became vice president and after Jackson retired from the White House Van Buren succeeded him. Up to this time the vice presidency bad been filled with men of unquestioned ability. "But In 1836 there was a sudden lowering of the standard for vice president" ay historian. Richard M. Johnson, who was chosen by the Demo crats to run with Van Buren, lived In a border state, Kentucky, where Van Buren was not strong. Otherwise be was merely a second-ratpolitician whose principal claim to fame was that he bad killed the great Indian chief, during the Battle of the Thames In lSia It helped elect him, even though It was a spuri ous claim. More authentic Is bis distinction of being the only vice president who has ever been elected by the United States senate. The Twelfth amendment to the Constitution provides tnat a candidate must receive a majority of the whole number of electoral votes to be chosen vice president If no candidate receives such a majority, the senate miist then choose a vice president from the two candidates wbo have received the largest number of votes. In the election of 1836 electoral votes were cast for the candidates for vice president as follows Richard M. Johnson, 147; Francis Granger, 77; John Tyler, 47, and William Smith, 23. The total number of votes cast for Granger, Tyler and Smith was 147, the same number as Johnson's, and no candidate had a majority of the whole number of votes cast Therefore the election fell to the senate, which chose Johnson. His election marked the beginning of the cus tom of filling the second highest office lu the e Harrison's running mate crat, for was John Tyler, who was not even a Whig but a Virginia Democrat. Just a month after Harrison's Inauguration, "Old Tippecanoe" died and John Tyler became the first vice president to win the Presidency through the death of his predecessor. The Constitution had left undetermined the question whether a vice president, upon the death of the President, should become President In fact or should merely discharge the duties of the office until the congress should decide what to do next. For half a century after its adoption no one knew the answer to that question nor apparently even thought much about It When Tyler be-- f came President he settled the question to hi? own satisfaction, at least by acting on the assumption that he was President In fact Since no one challenged bis right to do so, he established the precedent followed ever since, that the vice president who succeeds to the highest office through the death of bis predecessor shall serve out the remainder of the term for which that predecessor was elected. Moreover, during Tyler's administration the country was without a vice president for the longest period In Its history three years and 11 months. In 1850, when President Zachary Taylor died after having been In office only a little more than a year, Vice President Millard Fillmore followed the precedent established by Tyler and served as President for the next three years. Again there was a vacancy in the office of vice president during the greater part of an administration. There was another vacancy during the next administration, that of Franklin A. Pierce, for six weeks after William R. King became vice president he was dead. Incidentally, King was the only vice president who ever took the oath of office outside the United States. Before his Inauguration his health began to fail and he went to Cuba to recuperate. When It became apparent that he would be unable to attend the Inauguration ceremonies In Washington, the congress on March 2, I FEEL ditional projects. BOISE, IDA.
