But not in the press.
|"The Sphinx" by Carey Orr in Chicago Tribune, January 6, 1919|
|"General Pershing's Politics" by Ted Brown in Chicago Daily News, ca. January, 1919|
|"Won't He Show Some Interest..." by Herbert H. Perry in Sioux City (IA) Journal, ca. February, 1919|
|"Harmony!" by Edward Gale in Los Angeles Times, ca. February, 1919|
"The lute without rift" in Gale's cartoon references Alfred Lord Tennyson's "Idylls of the King," in which Vivien uses the phrase as a simile for a tiny disagreement that rots a friendship:
"It is the little rift within the lute
That by and by will make the music mute,
And ever widening slowly silence all."
|"O for the Touch of a Vanished Hand..." by William C. Morris for George Matthew Adams Service, ca. February, 1919|
The caption is another reference to Tennyson: this time, his poem "Break, Break, Break," written to mourn the death of his dear friend and champion, Arthur Hallam.
|"...A Shortage of Skilled Chauffeurs" by Jay N. "Ding" Darling" in New York Tribune, February 27, 1919|
|"An Opportunity that Didn't Materialize" by Carey Orr in Chicago Tribune, ca. January, 1919|
|"Now Just Where Is Our Vice-President At?" by W.A. Rogers in New York Herald, ca. January, 1919|
Whatever policy differences the two might have had, it seems to me that it was more of a matter of personal style: the priggish and scholarly Wilson didn't appreciate the Hoosier's candor and sense of humor. Wilson moved Marshall's office out of the White House ostensibly so that the Vice President would not be bothered by so many visitors. Marshall was, however, left in charge of cabinet meetings while the President spent extended periods of time in Europe negotiating the Paris Peace Accord.
|"Made His Pile and Went Broke" by R.O. Evans in Baltimore American, ca. January, 1919|
|"President Wilson Declares He Will Return to Private Life in 1921" by Wm. C. Morris for George Matthew Adams Service, ca. March 1, 1919|
Republicans ran against Wilson anyway.
