TUESDAY, JAN. 20, 1953 Ikes Carefree Life Ended at Noon Today By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON WV— Gen. Eisenhower In later years may look back upon his life up till noon today as nlmost carefree when with what lies ahead. compared His whole life had been a preparation for military eminence. He atlalncrt It. If he had retired from public life when' he retired from military life his place in hlsiory would 'be unquestioned.

All World Heard Inauguration WASHINGTON (IP> — Accounts of today's inauguration were carried to listerners around the world in 46 languages and dialects by t h e Voice of America, the State Department's overseas radio. A special inaugural program, the department said, was beamed simultaneously to Europe, the Near and Middle East, the Pav East arid Latin America on 42 different frequencin. In some countries, the program was to be further relayed locally. Tile Japanese Broadcasting Company, the department said, estimated it would have 20 million listeners. tory, of course. Any fault found with him In that field, such as in tactics or strategy, would have been only a minor footnote in the fat volume of his achievements. His was niiliUry success on the grand scale. But the affection he won from a feratcful nation was for more than just his victories in battle. In his appearance he represented the military side ot democracy at its best: He was a warm, earnest, smiling man. On the most solemn occasions he seemed ai Irlendly nnd familiar as the man next door. But by the very nature of his military life; and of the position of a military man in a republic, there was always someone above him to give final approval, or the final .order, for a decision he made. When he was a lieutenant, it WT the captain; when he was a general or chief of staff, It was the President. Someone until now always stood between him and the final critical judgment of history on whatever he did. No Longer True That is no longer true. After noon today, as new head of the government, he became responsible for leadership In problems greater than any he ever knew as head of armies, great as (hey were. With the presidency he assumes leadership for roughly half the people on earth because this country has undertaken leadership for that I>mi of mankind which lies outside comrhunisni. President Truman laid the groundwork for (hat leadership. But it was only a beginning. It will be up to Eisenhower to use what tins already been done and improve upon it. These next four years may be the turning point, one way or the other, in the struggle with communism. So the future of mankind may depend upon his ability, his vision and his decisions. He didn't have to take the presidency. He could have stopped where he was, knowing history would always deal with him most kindly. He cannot now be sure of that in his new 'assignment. If he succeeds, he -will have an even more honored place in 'history. If he fails —. Only time could measure the degree and the con T sequences of his failure.' It speaks well for his confidence in himself, and the confidence of his countrymen in him, that here, almost at the beginning of his old age, he is willing to undertake what is, in effect, a new life.

Adams Appliance Co. Inc. Los Angeles Bans. UNESCO Program LOS ANGELES (IP, — The s-hool board has banned the u: ESCO program* from the Los Angeles public schools.

Opponents of the program said that UNESCO material given students was "designed to promote world government." BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGB THRKS Groucho Marx Predicts Brothers Won't Perform Again as a Team By JAMES BACON ... ... (For Bob Thomas) .../... HOLLYWOOD, UV-Sad news today from Groucho Marx, who is seldom sad, even for n comic. The Marx Brothers will never perform again as a team, predicts Groucho. That Is sad, because tlie Marx Brothers nt their zanlest would make Martin and Lewis appear like temperance lecturers. "The same people who yell for us lo appear again as a team are the same ones who would be the first lo holler, 'Why did they have to bring those guys back?'" Groucho says. Groucho adds that he and his brothers believe it is better to follow the old vaudeville maxim— "Always leave them laughing." Besides, both he and Harpo are well fixed financially. •"'Chico is broke, of course, but that's not news. If that guy iriade S10.000 a'day, he'd spend $10,000. That's his life. He's happy. What puzzles me is that he sleeps better at night than I do." Groucho has one of the. softest touches in television and radio. His quiz show, "You Bet Your Life," is telecast and broadcast simultaneously. It requires little time on Groucho's part. Vf says that after 22 ysyf. he finally has completed the'tfyc'ie*of all Easterners who move to California. "When you first come out here, you buy a home on a mountalntop, install indirect lighting so you can belter enjoy the view at night. You look at tho view just once. "Next, you live at the beach. Before long the waves are breaking In your living room. "Ho you move to a canyon home. The storms come in the winter and wash your neighbor's house on top of yours. "Finally; you buy a house on a nice, quiet street like this (in Beverly Hills) where the milkman comes every morning and the ifids play ^with the kids next door jusl like they do in Philadelphia or Wichita." His home is large but not overly large in the movie star tradition. He had a big house once but, got rid of it after an incident that almost scared the pants off him. He was way off in a back bedroom strumming his guilar when the door creaked arid he looked up to confront a giant monster. It was his friend, Boris Karloff, made up for the first time as' Frankenstein. Karloif had driven across town from the studio in the monster get-up just to play a gag. "The maid let him in' just before she fainied," recalls Groucho. How Is the Time fo Prepare Yo'.ir Own for the Future! SEE' THE NEW ^953 ENCYCLOPEDIA. First Choice of America's Schools and Libraries.
