The new report from Snyder was in response to a request by newsmen that he say how Eisenhower's convalescence if progressing. Hagrty said he put the request to Snyder and that the doctor said Hagerty had been accurate in reporting yesterday that he feels the Florida sunshine has done Eisenhower a world of good. Snyder also, said, Hagerty ported, that the amount and kind of outdoor exercise Eisenmower has been getting here has been about "as anticipated." Reporting further on his conversation with Snyder, Hagertr said of the President: "He has slept very well and ha's relaxed easily throughout the day He has been averaging more than eight hours asleep at night." Snyder relayed word yesterday that 10 days in the Florida sunshine had done the president a lot of good. And to the newsmen covering his activities he looked good a bit later when he turned up at the ball park and laughingly shouted "robber' at the umpire. That came during a Softtal playing p.gents who guard the President. Met With Benson Eisenhower, basking in a ho sun, watched about half of the five inning game from the bleachers along the third base line. A short time before, he and Sec game the newsmen were against Secret Service retary oi Agriculture Benson had' just about, completed work on the special 5,000-word farm message the President will send to Congress Monday. The message will follow up his call for "immediate and drastic attention" to the problems of declining farm income and what to do about huge crop surpluses. It also will mark the start of a time of real testing whether Eisenhower's heart is up to the all-out grind of the presidency. His physicians said in December it would be mid-February before they could tell how the heart was standing- up under a full work load. If he hasn't done so already, the President almost certainly \ decide about that time whether to run again. He walked to the ball park with White House staff members and a group of visiting friends—about three quarters of a mile each way His doctor heartily approves that .kind of exercise, but has recommended the President pass up deep sea fishing during his Florida stay. The doctors feel that would be too much exertion at this stage of the President's - convalescence. Forced Guzzle KNOWATA, OMa.
