TUESDAY, OCTOBKR », 19M BLTTHETILLB (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE Aides Say Ike Unaware Of Political Commotion DENVER (AP) — Is President Eisenhower aware of tiie "political commotion" generated by his illness? The White House declines to say. Do his,aides "want to convey the impression" the President is totally unaware of that commotion when quite possibly he knows all about it? James C. Hagerty, White House press secretary, says on that one: "I urn not vonveymg any imprL-s- sion, but I am not going to answer your question." The big question, of course, whether Eisenhower f mighl seek second term despite his Sept. 4 heart attack. The general impression all along here lias been that he won't—but it's nothing more than an impression bolstered by the knowledge that a heart seizure sometimes limits a man's activities, particularly a man with the burdens of ihe presidency. Hagerty isn't the only one who has insisted the President has discussed no politics with the administration leaders who have called on him at the hospital. The leaders themselves have said so emphatically. "Not Time for That" Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge Jr., chief U. S. delegate to the United Nations, was asked at news conference yesterday after his meeting with the President: "How do you feel now about President Eisenhower for a second term?" "I don't think this is the time to talk about that." Lodge replied, "and I am an Eisenhower man all the time, but 1" don't think this is the time to discuss that." The ambassador was told ''there has been a Lodge boom" under way to swing the Republican presidential nomination to him if Eisenhower doesn't run again. "Oh please," he exclaimed, and added with a laugh: "Well, please take me out of the boom. I have no ambitions of that kind at all." Most of the administration leaders who have conferred with Eisenhower have said it would be "inappropriate" for them to discuss the political situation while he is in the hosptal. .

Unpronounceable Ingredient Causes Trouble in Parliament LONDON Wl — Unless a certain British government official can pronounce hydraztnocarbonylmethyl trimethylammonium c h 1 o r i d *— which seems unlikely—he's In for trouble. The o/fieln! is Peter Thorney- craft, president of the Board of Trade, who recently jumped the duty on hydrn, etc. from 10 to 33 per cent. Capt. Richard A. Pilkington, a conservative member of Parliament, wants to know why. Pilkington, going through the usual channels, has filed a question on the matter for Thorneycrol't to answer on the floor of the House of Commons. The question comes up a week from Thursday. Not Curious Filkington tola newsmen he wasn't especially curious about hydra, etc. himself. Some of his constituents use the stuff and asked him to ask Thorneycroft about it. "I can't pronounce it," said Pilkington. "I don't even know what is is. There's a fugitive sort of charm about it, whatever it may be, and it will be an interesting experience hearing the president say it out loud." A London industrial chemist Too Much Sake And No Workee NIIGATA CITY, .Japan V?) — A housewife complained today about condolence gifts presented her family after a fire had destroyed much of this city early this month. Condolence gifts are a Japanese social fixture for those who suffer misfortune. "But why do they always bring sake (rice wine)," the housewife wrote in .a letter to the newspaper Niigata Nippo. She said the family had received nearly 20 large bottles of sake. "At such H lime," she wrote, "one hopes that the men . . . will work cleaning up debris and helping other fire victims. But all they do is sit together, drink sake, talk much, get drunk, and end up snoring loudly. "It is very discouraging to a poor housewife."

He commented: "What's all the fuss about? Hydra-what-do-you-eall-lt Is simply an analytical reagent used for the separation of ketonic compounds and in A. G. -steroids." The ketonic compounds are an elusive group of highly volatile liquid hydrocarbons. It was beginning to sound as if the whole thing might have to clo with plastics and other -such important products of organic c h e m i s t r y. But come Thursday week Thorneycroft may have dug up a different set of This Parakeet Not So Dumb LONDON iff) — if the homing pigeon NURP 489307 AX could talk like Mickie the parakeet, he could tell quite a story. In August 1949, Thomas Annstrong- sent the pigeon 400 miles to Berwick on the English-Scottish border for a race back to Annstrong's bird loft in Sidlesham, Sussex. The bird got home yesterday. "Haven't the remotest idea what could have delayed him," Armstrong told reporters. Mickie the parakeet, on the other hand, can outtalk your wife. He vanished two weeks ago from the home of his owner, 9-year-old Jacqueline Simpson of Melbourne, Derbyshire. He was found six miles away by Mrs. Hilda Worrall, who hadn't any clue where he belonged. For a fortnight voluble Mickie spouted nothing but old nursery rhymes. Yesterday, said Mrs. Worrall, he suddenly came out with: "66 Derby Road." She look him there and, sure enough, that's where he lives.
