THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 195« BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER PAGEnVK The Big Decision III; World Situation and Party Unity May Swing Ike to Second Term By KKLMAN MORI.V WASHINGTON (AP) — On a June day in 1952, Dwighl D. Eisenhower sat in his compartment on a train crossing the Kansas wheat fields, chatting with reporters. The day before, in his home way: I five years, and the problem is town of Abilene, he had started .-jf s a fact [i iai tllere B . cre ; what will be the effect on the his drive lor the Republican prosi- (j n ie s durins; the first year or so presidency, not on me." dential nomination.

Ana nation and "But then He oegan to settle into j don't think he will now." j harness and I had the impression j out of Army parlance came that figure heavily in the President's deliberations on a second term. Clay Was Signer When the Citizens for Eisenhower organization was reactiviated recently, the letter of announcement cited "present world conditions" as being likely to induce the President to run again. One of the three signers of this letter was Gen. Lucius D. Clay, Eisenhower's friend and former Army colleague. Clay said in listing what he considers other major factors: "The objectives of his program have not yet been Sully achieved. He knows it may take another four years." Other Republicans describe Eisenhower's leadership in the party as the "cement" that holds together its differing elements. They say he knows this loo. These are points that might incline Eisenhower toward running for a second term. But his frankly expressed apprehension about the effect on his offic of some "untoward" event may be pulling him in the opposite direction. "It is a very critical thing to change governments in this country at & time that is unexpected," Eisenhower said recently. He thought it was "ft rather startling thing" that there was "even some disturbance in the stock market at the time " got sick." On the Monday after his heart attack, the New York Stock Exchange experienced the greatest single day's decline since Oct. 28. 1929. Exchanges in London, Paris, Amsterdam and Toronto also fell sharply. By Dec. 5. the market had regained the levels held before his illness. Still another • potential factor may pivot around the question: "How does the President like his job now?" People close to him say he likes it a lot, and that he was just beginning to" enjoy it to the full when his illness struck him down.One of them traced the course t work." "I, biggest risk of all? Not long ago, the President said.) Tomorrow: If not Eisenhower, 'I have to guess as to the next! then \vllo? And what? Indian Officials Surprised At Doctor's Adoption Plans ! FORT HALL, Idaho Ufi— Officials j expressed surprise when told a woman , chiropractor in Pennsylvania intended to adopt seven Indian children now living on this reservation. Dr. Imogene Barker, 27, Lemont, Pa., said yesterday she planned to head for Idaho soon to pick up the children. i But Supt. P. M. Owl said the first | he had ever heard of. her plans ' came from an Associated Press story. He added he knows of no family on the reservation considering putting seven children up for adoption. Later, Dr. Barker said nationwide publicity of her adoption plan had dashed her hopes. But she added she would try harder than ever despite legal barriers. She said she was told "I now will not be able to take the children Lassie Removed | From Cistern ASHLAND, Ky. t* — Lassie is back home, apparently none the worse after a 5-week stay at the bottom of a dry cistern 30 feet deep. Buddy and Junior Gibbons reported their medium-size mongrel, with collie characteristics, missing Jan. 1. Last Sunday, a worker discovered a deep cistern under • a house next door to the Gibbons' residence and caught the gleam of | two eyes. Firemen were called and rescued the emaciated dog. Now Lassie "is" romping again with Buddy and Junior and a hole i in the concrete block foundation ioor is being plugged up. righl from the reservation because I have disclosed to their parents in whose care the children will be. That, it seems, is illegal." Owl said he had found Dr. Barker had been in touch with the Rev. Jack Bennett, who is in charge of the Assembly of God church on the reservation, concerning adopting the children. The pastor said, however, he knew nothing about any plans for the adoption of any specific seven children. , PIPETHIS—Army Maj Rhinehardt Schmilski settles back to enjoy one of his 230 pipes.

"Salt Lake City has a nice pioneer monument now — out of the way of traffic," he said, referring to "This Is the Place" monument in the city's eastern foothills. He said the statue "would be a fitting centerpiece for the BYU quadrangle and a much more suitable representation of the founder of BYU than the small plaster cast now in the Maese'r Building — the only piece fo art students here have Jo remind them of the high ideals and virtues of the school's founder."
