In April, 10-13, speaking of one phase of his job in Europe, Ike wrote a friend: "Once this war over, I hope never again to hear tl.e word 'politics.'

The same ROCS for politics. I'm a soldier I'm positive no one thinks of as a politician." The general wa* never more wrong. Less than two months later .someone did suggest him for President. Someone very important. After the Potsdam conference. President Truman told Ike, "Gen- rni, there is nothing that you may want that I won't try to help you get. That definitely and specifically includes the presidency in 1948." (The statement later was substantiated by Truman.) Writing in his "Crusade in Europe," Eisenhower said he told Truman, "Mr. President, I don't know who will be your opponent for the presidency, but it will not be I." "There was no doubt about my seriousness," the general wrote, and he emphasized the "my." But two years later, Eisenhower began to waver on the question of duty. On Sept. 17, 1947, he wrote Gen. Walter Bedell Smith, his friend and former chief of staff: "I do not believe that you or 1 or anyone else has the right to stale, catcgorcially, that he will not perform any duty that his country might demand of 'him. In the same letter, published by Kevin McCann in "Man from Abilene." Elsenhower added that he would not consider it a call to duty if nominated by a deadlocked convention as a compromise candidate. On Jan. 23, 1948, as the Eisenhower boom gathered momentum, came the famous letter to New Hampshire publisher Leonard V.I Finder: ". '. . It is my conviction that, unless an individual feels some inner compulsion and special qualifications to enter the political arena—which I do not—a refusal to do so involves no violation o£ the highest standards of devotion to duty. ". . . It is my con'yiction that the necessary and wise subordination of the military to civil power will On July 0, 1948, while some high- I ly placed Democrats were booming • | sued a "final and complete" refusal. But several months later at Columbia, he was speaking out'on social security, capital and labor and other public issues. Skeptical critics thought they heard the noises of a candidate. Ike again referred them to the Finder letter. On Oct. 15, 1950, Gov. Thomas E. Dewey of New York endorsed the general as the GOP candidate in 1952. Ike said he was grateful but had not changed his mind since i948. But evidently something began to change his mind. Through the winter of 1951-52, he seems to have struggled with the problem of where his duty lay. Now events were moving faster. March 17, 1951. From his SHAPE headquarters near Paris, Ike do 1 rues a published story that Truman had made a deal with him to make the general available for the 1952 nomination. Nov. 8.

He looks like he had been poured into his suits. You just kind of overflow yours." Well, Grant came to town the other day after finishing his new picture, "Monkey Business," so I plodded up to his hotel to find out how to be well dressed. When Grant opened the door it looked fairly easy to dress like him — all he hnd on was a big bath towel and one man wears a bath towel pretty much like an- keeps up their morale. "However, I don't think that dignity of carriage should depend on, or go hand in hand with discomfort. Good clothes should be com- fortabl'j as well as dressy." Grant carries his own theory of comfort so far that he rarely wears n belt and never wears sus- pcndcrs, garters or undershirts. He was rnther hard to pin down on what actually makes a well- dressed man. "To look well-dressed you simply have to have a well-dressed look. I don't know myself what looks well and what doesn't.

T. Barnum, and; ["The Unknown Barnum," by Hav! vey W. Root. Though Phineas T. i Barnum is chiefly known by his fame as a showman, he was a man of many-sided ability and ', varied activities. It is perhaps not | generally known that he was at one time numbered in the ranks of newspapermen, land that ;in n lB later years he often wrote for the papers, though he had chosen another profession than that of journalism. Barnum's"entrance~into~the~newspaper arena occurred in October. 1831, just after he had passed hi% 21st birthday. Letters to the editor, under the dignified title ot "communications," played an important role in the papers of that day. Barnum's home town, the village of Bethel, Connecticut, had no newspaper; and Barnum, who took seriously' the controversy over the subject of church and state whose union he opposed, wrote a JJI letter to the editor of the weekly •^" sheet in the neighboring town of Danbury. The editor refused to print the letter, and Barnum wrote another. This also was refused whereupon the indignant youth is sued an astonishing ultimatum •Print my comments, or I wil buy presses and start a paper o my own in two weeks. Though Barnum had no knowledge of printing, had not a single day's experience in a newspaper office, and a very limited capital, he succeeded in making good his One union source said the Wage- •olicy Committee might ask Muray to retrace some of the ground ic has given up through compromise and take a new position even farther away from the industry's stand. The steel industry appeared to be just as firm. In Chicago, Clarence B. Randall, president of the Inland Steel Company and a leading spokesman for the industry, said "strong public opinion" is urging his company "to stand fast and not sign a contract that will prevent a non - union man from working." The possible seizure of a portion of the idle mills under the Selective Service Act was reportedly taken under active consideration after a White House Conference Thursday between Dr. John R. Steelman, acting chief mobilizer, and government production and defense officials. President Truman seized the industry on April 8 under his claimed inherent constitutional powers. Two months later, on June 2, the Supreme Court in a 6 to 3 opinion held the seizure unconstitutional and ordered,, the mills returned to private ownership. A great deal.... of „.,. groundwork would be necessary if the government did decide to attempt seizure Continued on Page Two dressed for the heat wave. "It is an odd thing that New Yorkers, in all these years, haven't found a way to dress to cope with the humidity," he mused. "The Cubans have arrived at a thing — a pleated shirt worn outside the pants. It looks rather well." When I explained my mission, Grant looked slightly depressed. "Why don't you ask rne something profound?" he said. "I haven't the slightest Idea how I get on those best-dressed men lists." Pressed to give his sartorial views, however, Grant gave thusly: "They say that an interest in clothing is a sign of insecurity, and perhaps I had a feeling ol insecurity in my youth. (Grant once was a carnival stilt walker) "But I really feel that we owe it to our fellow man to look well Clothes do affect people's manners That is why the British dress formally even in the Tropics.

I asked Grant if he believed a wife should pick her husband's clothes. "Some wives should," he said. "But my wife doesn't. She doesn't even pick her own — she wears blue jeans and a shirt. I select a dress for her now and then." Just then a haberdasher came in and after a brief consultation with him Grant ordered a couple ol dozen home-made — I moan cus torn made — shirts.

Dlckenhorst f Morrilton; chairman of the High- vay Audit Commission which oundly criticized the McMath administration, was n member of Brothers Surrender to Posse Society at Worcester, Massachusetts. Though the sale of the Herald of Freedom marked the end of threat. The Hearld of Freedom, Barnum's most active and impor- Bethel, Connecticut, P. T. Barnum, | tant journalistic experience, he re editor and publisher, came into being. The first issue of the paper, consisting of four sheets, came out in October. In establishing the paper, Barnum was moved by indignation at what he considered an attempt to shackle free speech. Being young, and without the common sense or restraint which a few years of experience might have given him, he spoke freely in his own sheet. He was radical, unorthodox in religion, and politically a Jeffersonian. It is said that "He did not call a spade a spade; he called it 'a damned old shovel,' and he loved the strong word." As a result of his strong views and his outspokenness, he soon found himself facing a series of suits for libel. The first of these were not serious in their effects, being either defeated or settled by moderate fines and payment of costs. However, eventually one ot them resulted in a jail sentence, in addition to a fine of $100 and costs of the trial. While the jail sentence was disagreeable, it did not prove to be a real hardship. Barnum was looked upon as suffering for the cause of free speech, and his stay in jail was made easy, "almost luxurious," by the host of friends who flocked to pay him visits and to make life comfortable for him. He was allowed to edit his paper with the cell (which had been papered and carpeted) as an office; and aa the trial and conviction made his name and reputation more widely known than ever before, the circulation of the Herald of Freedom increased rapidly. It had over a hundred" agents and went as far south as Florida and as far west as Indiana. Put if threats and imprisonment failed to deter the young editor and mellow the policy of the Herald of Freedom, pther factors tended to put an end to the venture. Ifcough there wwe many to applaud, Barnum was left to pay the cost of bis fight for a free press entirely put of h& own resources, and into these the fines and court costs made heavy inroads. About two years from the date of the first issue, Bamum declared that his property was vanishing "like dew before the sun »t noonday.-*' Just after the end 0* his third year of publication, Biyroum's connection with the paper canie to an end and toe shset ' into the hands of 9 brother* ¥w* talned the journalistic Instinct to the last. He was quick to sense "news" and to see the possibilities of a "story." Once, when he was stranded in New York City and without funds, he did a series of feature stories for Sunday editions and also wrote some advertising copy. He himself was a prolific source of copy; everything he did was of Interest to the public, and he well knew how to capitalize on this fact. If the boys did not come after the story, he was almost certain to either send for them or to write it himself and send it to the city editor. Barnum was also an advertising pioneer. In any appraisal of his publicity efforts, it should be borne in mind that many' of today's methods were used first by him. He was a firm believer in tho generous use of regular paid newspaper advertisement. He even carried his belief in adversing so far as to advocate strongly its use by the church—a development which has come about in recent years. It is held by some that, judging by the promise of his early experiment in journalism and the publicity sense shown in his later years, there is every reason to believe that, had he chosen to make journalism his life work, "Barnum" would have been one of the great names in American journalism, ranking with Dana, Bowles, and Greeley. An editorial in a contemporary issue of The Sun credited tiim with profound knowledge and breadth of view. In viewpoint, methods, and opinions, he is said to have been easily fifty years ahead of his day. Barnum never forgot or overlooked the part his early experience as editor and publisher, or the journalistic field at large, played in his success. "I don't know of any episode in my life." he said, "that has been more valuable to me than my boy editorship." He declared that all his great success in later years was due to "printer's ink" and confessed that the success which bad been his could "fairly be attributed more to the public press than to nearly all other causes combined." Of all instrumentalities," he said, "it is for the editor and bis paper that I am profoundly thankful, for they provide wind for my sails." It was no doubt a combination Of observation and experience which Iea4 him to say, in later 3?e*r? , wfcat ethers have *:tFjr " ** FT. SMITH, Iff)'— Two brothers, footsore and weary from a 40-mile, all-night flight afoot from an Okla- Jioma posse, surrendered near here yesterday. "" ' The men, Denver and Henry R. Baker, were arrested by Sgt. Bernard Young of the Arkansas State Police and two Oklahoma officers at the junction of Highways 271 and 45 two miles south of here: They waived tradition and promptly were returned to Poteau, Okla., to face charges of assault with intent to kill Oklahoma State Tro&per Otto Rauch. A posse of Oklahoma officers searched all Thursday night and most of yesterday in the rugged Poteau mountains for the brothers, who are accused of beating Rauch after he had arrested them for reckless driving. Sgt. Young said the men telephoned a relative in Ft. Smith from the junction, who in turn telephoned a state police headquarters here that the men were waiting for officers to come and get them. Young said the Bakers surrendered without resistance, and added they were not armed. He said he did not know what happened to a; pistol and a shotgun which were reportedly stolen from Rauch's patrol car. Rauch suffered severe injuries, including a concussion, in the fight, but his condition was reported improved by attendants at a Poteau hospital. Sheriff Jack Craig of Leflore County said Denver Baker, 26, was under a 4-year suspended sentence for assaulting Police Chief Bill Cupp of Poteau. Henry is 23.
