An "In" Shouldn't Debate With An "Out", Says Ike NEW YORK (AP) - Former, President Dwight D. Eisenhower j says that, if he were in office, ho would not debate a political rival on television. The former president was seen Thursday night over the CBS television network in an hour-long interview with Walter Cronkite. It was taped at Gettysburg, Pa., Eisenhower's home, last spring. Among his major disappointments, Eisenhower said, was the failure of Vice President Richard M. Nixon to win election as his successor and "a lack of definite proof we had made real progress toward achieving peace with justice." As his most important accomplishment in office, he listed "creating an atmosphere of serenity and mutual confidence." As for his feelings about the late Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy, Eisenhower felt the way to defeat the Wisconsin Republican was to ignore him. His 1955 heart attack, Eisenhower said, might have been brought on by his temper, and since then "I've never gotten angry again." Eisenhower's views of TV debates were given while discussing Nixon's defeat by John F. Kennedy. Said Eisenhower: "I can't think of anything that's worse. Any man that is an incumbent has to stick to the facts. He is a responsible man debating with someone who. if he chooses, can be irresponsible. "No, if I were giving a political piece of advice to my associates in government, I would say: "When you're in, never debate with an outer.'" At several points in the interview, Eisenhower referred to his temper. "Like most people," he said, "I am a temper. damaging to anybody that aspires to a position of leadership of any man of considerable . . . One thing that is kind must learn to control his temper. And this sometimes . . . gets to be quite a tough job." As for a possible cause of his heart attack, Eisenhower said: "On Sept. 23, 1955, I was playing golf—and I was playing well— and I started off about the fourth hole, and I had a message to come into the clubhouse, and ! had a cart. "So I dashed up, and there was a call from the State Department And it turned out that while, al though I'd answered in a matter of a couple of minutes, some little emergency had happened, and they'd like to talk to me in about an hour—they'd let me know. So I went on my golf date." Eisenhower then told of being called back to the clubhouse again for another call on the same subject, which he said "was important—but I mean it wasnt (of) too immediate a character." "And finally, we started back on another nine—and I got another one," he continued. "This one was by some one who didn't realize that I'd had the thing. And by this time—I always had an uncertain temper—(it) had gotten completely out of control. "And this one doctor says that he'd never seen me in such a state—and that's the reason I had a heart attack So I've never gotten angry again."

Nixon will flatly declare him- ielf out of the 1964 presidential ace within the next few weeks, i Nixon source said Thursday night. The source, who asked not to be identified, told newsmen at a private gathering: "Mr. Nixon 'eels that there are no possible conditions under which he would >e a candidate for president." The source said the former vice- president also held these views: 1. President Kennedy probably will be unbeatable in 1964; his only real problem in winning reelection would be an economic recession, and if the United States should go to war, his re-election would be certain. 2. Probable GOP candidates will e Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller of New York or Sen. Barry Goldwater of Arizona—or a combination of both. 3. Nixon plans to do very little campaigning for governor of California during the rest of 1961 and definitely will not permit party leaders from outside to stump Caifornia for him—with the possible exception of former President Dwight D. Eisenhower. (Nixon, defeated in the 1960 presidential election, stated at a recent news conference that he would serve California's full four- year term if elected. Water, Cash Keep Cohen Behind Bars LOS ANGELES (AP) — Two things stand today between Mick' ey Cohen and temporary freedom: San Francisco Bay and $100,000. The onetime kingpin of Los Angeles bookmaking is serving a federal income tax evasion sentence at Alcatraz Island. But Thursday, in Washington, Supreme Court Justice William 0 Douglas ruled that Cohen could go free—on $100,000 bail — pending appeal of his conviction. "There's a slight possibility the bond could be posted here tomorrow," his attorney, Jack Dahlstrum, said in Los Angeles Thursday night. "But it's more likely it'll be Monday." If Cohen is freed today, he will have served 78 days of his 15-year sentence. He was also fined $30, 000 in federal court when he was convicted last July 1. ® 1961, King Future* Syndicate.

(AP)-The Army apparently has scored big with President Kennedy in his close-up look at its proud paratroopers, skilled antiguerrilla forces and sharpshooting weapons. The impact that Thursday's four-hour demonstration made on the President could yield important dividends to the Army in the shaping of the new defense budget. Gen. George H. Decker, Army chief of staff, who sat beside the President through much of the afternoon, told a reporter Kennedy was "tremendously impressed" with the accuracy and the efficiency of the artillery pieces and missiles. Maj. Gen. Theodore Conway commanding general of the elite all-volunteer 82nd Airborne Divi sion, said the President remarkec to him that the paratroopers pride and spirit "stand out al over them." This dovetailed with a statement by the White House press secretary, Pierre Salinger, tha the President was very impresset by the firing and other exhibition: as well as by the quality, calibei and spirit of the men. By this, Kennedy obviousl; meant not only the paratrooper but the highly trained antiguer rilla forces and rangers. The Army wheeled up a serie . OteS THE OTTAWA HERALD Saturday, October 14, 1961 Library Receives Book Memorials By NELL BARNABY Librarian Some of the finest books in the Uarnegie Free Library's collec- ion bear the inscription, "In Memory Of " according to •fell Barnaby, Librarian. These are books which have >een presented as memorials to :ome friend or relative — an d e a which is ) e r s o na 1 ly gratifying to the lonor and is a ribute of simpli- ity and dignity o the person whose name appears in the nscription. books are so ex- N - BARNABY pensive and of such a specialized nature that they could not have seen purchased from the library's regular books funds. The titles are usually selected to suit the interests and tastes of the person who is being honored. Book memorials which have been made to the library in recent months include the follow ing: The Horizon Book of the Renaissance" in honor of Judge Clive Owen; "Digging for History", by Edward Bacon and "Just Half a World Away", by Jean Lyon, in memory of Mrs. A. G. Madtson. Among the children's books are I'm Hiding", by Myra Cohn Livingston, and "Why?. . . Because", by Jo Ann Stover, in memory of Sandra Lynn Coons. When a check is received at the library requesting the purchase of books in memory of a certain person, a notice is sent to the family of the deceased stating that a memorial order is being placed and the donor's name is given. When the books are received, a memorial gift plate, bearing the name of the person being honored is placed in each nook. The idea of books as memorial! tias been widely adopted in cities across the country. In many communities, collections have been built up to honor war heroes. Others honor neighbors, or distinguished citizens. Some libraries have received gifts other than books — buildings, bookmobiles and needed equipment. The library staff will be happy to assist persons who wish to choose books as lasting memorials — the kind that keep alive the value of a fine book and the memory of a friend. of some small and large weapons conventional artillery and some rockets capable of firing atomic warheads.
