In 1930, President Hoover submitted the name of Charles Evans Hughes to the Senate for Confirmation as Chief Justice. Frictions developed over the appointment and the President was caught up in the dissension.

Fortunately, this was counter-balanced by a happy event - the birth of his granddaughter."What a beautiful child!" exclaimed a friend, upon seeing the infant.

"Beautiful indeed!" gloated Hoover. "And she doesn't have to be confirmed by the Senate."
