WEDNESDAY, JAN. 21, 1953 (ARK.) COURIER NE Inauguration was a Bit Of Everything American By ED CRKAGH WASHINGTON «V- H was a symbol and a'clashing of cymbals It was an extravaganza and a prayer. •-•'..;, " • V It was part J^ardt Gras, parl Saturday night at the country club part old-fashioned Fourth of July celebration, part a simple appeal for divine blessing.. It was a little bit of 'everything that's America—a husbandly peck on the cheek for Mamie Elsen- hower, a cowboy's lasso flipped around her soldier-President, a sassy display of bare-limbed high school tulles, a doleful chorus oi . "Auld Lung Syne" for a man go- Ingr home to Missouri. All this and much more that was Washington on "1-Day." The "I" stands for both "inauguration" and for "Ike/ 1 It had its solemn moments Dwight Eisenhower saw to that He broke precedent by opening his . Inaugural address with a prayer one he'd composed himself In the silence of the awesome morning before hfs formal elebatlon to the highest office In the land Then— The Inaugural Parade. Bl bands, whooping Indians, prancing drum majorettes, glittering floats West Point cadets and Annapolis midshipmen marching with machine precision . Elephants, too yes—and elephants, a dog team from Alaska, an atomic cannon a George Washington, an Abe Lincoln—name it and chalices are you could find it In the confetti-showered parade that filed up Pennsylvania Avenue with a new president of the United States at its head. Eisenhower rode from the Capt- tol. scene of his Inauguration, to the White House in a gleaming white, open car. His'wife rode at his side. That, too, was a-break , with tradition — past -presidents have had their vice presidents alongside them, with the women bringing up to the rear. Mamie Eisenhower had the time of her life. She spotted In a hotel room window a single spectator, feet on windowsili, a bottle tilted to his lips. Laughing, she lugged at (he coattails of her standing, waving ~ husband. But he' roared with laughter when, after he was seated in the presidential reviewing stand sit pretty girls rolled past In Missouri's I'Gateway to the West" float—wearing fur- coats. "Mink coats!" The cry went up from spectators—recoiling the corruption scandals attributed to the administration which had passed into history a few hours before. What of the man who headed that administration? Harry Truman and Bess started on their way home to Independence.^Mo. Housing Sendoff And a crowd of several thousand gave them a rousing sendoff for a half-hour before their train pulled out of union station "For he's a Jolly good felUw," the well-wishers sang, as well as 'Auld Lang Syne" when the train began to move with the ex-President and Ihe former first Indy waving from the rear platform of their borrowed White House private car. Scores of old friends clambered aboard to wish them godspeed Among them: Chief Justice' Fred M. Vinson, who earlier In the day ha,d administered the oath of office to President Elsenhower. Truman was touched by the warmth of the farewell gathering "I'll never forget this as long as I live—if I be a hundred " he sald-"and that's exactly what I plan to do." When the Trumans left town, at 6:35 p.m., the Eisenhowers still were gamely reviewing a parade which was supposed lo last three hours and eventually lasted more nan five. It. was 1 p.m. before the last unit rolled past and the new President and first lady were free to enter their new home have dinnor and dress for thcjlnaugural Ball. ' • \ U was white tie and tails for Eisenhower, a pink gown spectacularly strewn with thousands of rhlnestones /or his wife. They dropped in on both sections of the ball—the one half. in National Guard Armory, (he other i Georgetown University's gym ' Finally, at 1:30 a.m., back t the white House. "It was a Ion, but very wonderful day," Eisen hower told an aide. Then a work day dawned fo the new Chief Executive—and fo hundreds of workmen \vh==e jo it was to take down the wilte bunting- and otherwise reconver Washington 'from a fiesta town t the workaday capital of a com plicated country and the keyston city of a'free world. Police finally put the I-Da crowd at 150-000 — two-thirds o them from 'out of ,town. The ma jority headed for home last nighl jamming trains, buses, planes an highways. There were sore fee and upset stomachs aplenty today There was the memory, too, o tin unforgettable event. Korea Now Has A Cornell Club x ITHACA, N.
