¡¡¡©Ĥ@pt ® 33 T ®M$!!! Σ έ 1. Herbert Hoover : This guy first started out as Secretary of Commerce to Prez. Warren Harding, was considered as one of Harding’s “good” officials (compared to the next two (look below)), and encouraged businesses to regulate themselves. He was a republican who ran on a campaign of prohibition and “prosperity” (*Knights of Prosperity* Wednesdays on ABC). After stepping into “the office” (Thursdays on NBC) in 1928 (31 st president), he had to deal with the Great Crash of 1929, which caused the Great Depression (mainly due to over-speculation). He is famous for the Hawley-Smoot Tariff, which raised the tariff to a mind-boggling 60%, as well as the (Chuck) Norris- LaGuardia Act of 1932 (look below). Oh yeah, the Hoover Dam was named after him. 2. Albert B. Fall : The man was Secretary of the Interior during Harding's administration, and was a scheming anticonservationist . He was convicted of leasing naval oil reserves and collecting bribes, which was called the Teapot Dome Scandal . 3. Harry M. Daugherty : Attorney General during the 1922 strike against the Railroad Labor Board. The strike ended when Daugherty stopped the strikers in one of the most sweeping injunctions in American history. Was a member of Harding's “Ohio Gang”. He was accused of the illegal sale of pardons and liquor permits and was forced to resign. 4. Laissez-faire economics : Wanted not only for the government to have no control over businesses but also for the government to help guide businesses along the path to profits. 5. William H. Taft, Supreme Court justice : Warren G. Harding appointed four of the nine Supreme Court justices, including ex-prez. Will H. Taft. He performed his duties ably and was more liberal (i.e.…Hizon) than some of his cautious associates. 6. Adkins v. Children’s Hospital : Court reversed its ruling in the Muller v. Oregon case by invalidating a minimum wage law for women . 7. Veterans Bureau (1921) : Congress generously created this in 1921 to operate hospitals and provide vocational rehabilitation for the disabled. Many veterans wanted the monetary compensation promised to them for their services in the war. 8.
