    President Pershing had a long private talk with Vice President Calvin Coolidge. The President set up the agenda for the rest of his second term. He also seriously asked the Vice President to consider running for President in 1924. The Vice President was cool to the idea of running for President. He told him that he better warm up to the idea because he was the best man for the job. Governor Alfred E Smith of New York was the leader of the New Democrats and considered to be a possible candidate for the high office. He had been all
    over the Empire State promoting reconstruction of the state.

    New York City looked nothing like it had before the Fall. There was a lot more open space but even so with more than 50 years since The Fall there was still some rubble being cleared from Brooklyn, Queens or Staten Island. Still one could hardly tell that the city had been all but eliminated from existence. The home of Theodore Roosevelt had been rebuilt and now the current Governor stayed there when he was in the city. Currently the Cities population was 120,000 and that included all of the boroughs. Several Bridges were under construction but the only way onto Staten Island was by Ferry or a Bridge from the New Jersey side.

    Admiral William Kamehameha II RHN ret, Address the graduating class at the US Naval Academy> The former Chairman of the Hawaiian Joint Chiefs of Staff addressed the graduating Midshipmen and congratulated them on completing 4 years of study prparing them to become offices in the US Navy. He said that he could remember the challenges that one faced as a new Naval officer and the fears that one had. That they were facing a world that was changing the airplane was just coming into service and ships which had been the Queen of Battle were changing. The nation counted on them to do their duty and insure the security of the nation. He hope that he would get a chance to meet each and wish them God Speed.
