MUNCIE EVENING PRESS, FRIDAY, APRIL 4, 1969 PACE FIVE Mamie Goes For Rest to Gettysburg . WASHINGTON (UPI) Mamie Eisenhower came home today and headed for the Gettysburg, Pa., farm she and the late Dwight D. Eisenhower had planned for their retirement home. Mrs. Eisenhower returned to the capital aboard the same train that carried the body of the former president on its last trip to his boyhood home of Abilene, Kan. 7 he general's 72-year-old wid Anderson fo Hold Pageant 2 Liquor Permits Renewed ow rode the train bearing the body to Abilene for the burial on Wednesday and returned on It with her son John and his through Lt. Col. Maurice Shahrabani, an Information officer with the military district of Washington, that she would v, men iwg udUKiucrs ana farm Dwight David Eisenhower II. 21," and his wife, Julie, daughter of President Nixon. TRAIN RETURNS ON TRACK NO. IS The train pulled into Union Station on track 13 at 7:55 a.m. EST, but it was an hour before Mrs. Eiesnhower'a luggage was unloaded and she and her son. John, entered the big black limousine parked at track side. They left immediately for Gettysburg. Tight security prevailed. Newsmen peered from behind locked gates as the party disembarked from the train. Mrs. Eisenhower sent word Earl Heath Named to State Post Gov. Edgar Whitcomb today announced the appointment of a Delaware County man as assistant director of the Indiana Department of Veterans Affairs. Named was Earl Heath, 37, a native of Cowan. He was legislative director for the Amvets and was the 1967 Amvet of the Year. Heath succeeds Jack Colglazier, Danville, who was advanced to director of the Indiana Department of Veterans Affairs. The department has three ma jor responsibilities. It handles requests for advice and aid for veterans.

The family is assisted in every possible way when filing for benefits due. IIP EISENHOWER DIED WEEK AGO TODAY "Her future plans are Indefi nite," Shahrabani said. Mrs. Eisenhower wore a dark coat and small hat. She was pale but appeared to be composed. Before she left the train she said goodbye to some of the personnel aboard. She greeted dignitaries waiting at the station before driving away. Mrs. Eisenhower presumably will rest for a while at the Gettysburg farm from an exhausting week since Eisen hower's death at 12:25 p.m. EST one week ago today. She generally bore up well during public appearances, both in Washington and Abilene, but obviously was quite tired from the ordeal. MAY ACCOMPANY SON TO BRUSSELS She was reported planning to accompany son John, newly confirmed as U.S. ambassador to Belgium, to Brussels when he goes there in a few weeks to take up his post. Before that, however, she is expected to visit Dr. Milton Eisenhower, her late husband's youngest surviving brother who was admitted to Walter Reed Army Hospital where the ger eral died on Monday just before the state funeral. Dr. Eisenhower, president emeritus of Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, has been undergoing tests at the hospital since then. At his own request, there has been no word on his ailment since the hospital reported Tuesday he was in satisfactory condition. As during the trip to Abilene from Washington with Eisen hower's body, the train carrying Mrs. Eisenhower back to the capital was met by crowds at several points along the way. During a stop late Thursday at Huntington, W.Va., for a change of crews, Mrs. Eisen hower appeared on the rear platform and told about 500 persons: "John and I want to thank you for your expressions of sympathy.

The American Civil Liberties Union complained to the Defense Department last year about "improper religious refer ences" in the Army's character guidance programs. The Army replied to ACLU in December it would delete the terms from the character guidance manual. Last Friday Laird ordered a study on the subject But he issued another announcement Maundy Thursday even before completion of the study. SERVES AS ELDER IN HOME CHURCH Laird, a sailor aboard a destroyer in World War II and an elder in the First Presbyte rian Church in Marshfield, Wis., said in the announcement: "With regard to character guidance programs within the military departments I want to state that there will be no prohibition against the use of 'God,' 'Supreme Being.' Crea tor,' 'faith, 'spiritual values or similar words.' Laird said the military services "consistently have adhered to the position that espousal of religious dogmas or particular sectarian beliefs is not the purpose and has no place in the character guidance programs." But he said "refer ences to tnese terms are appropriate." Hubbard Medal To Borman Crew WASHINGTON (UPI) - The three astronauts who circled the moon in December have been awardede the 1968 Gen.
