WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 1988 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Ike's 2nd Term Decision Is a Matter of Conscience By JAMES MARLOW . ' Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — Until he decides finally whether to run again President Eisenhower will be a lonely man, living with his conscience. Because his decision is a matter of conscience, no one can really help him make it. He said recently, "I could devoutly wish there were some method by which the American people could .. .'point out the path of my true duty. But . . .. people this is a question that first I alone must answer." It would have been easy and necessary for htm to decide against seeking a second term if his doctors, after their checkup this week, had said he could not physically endure another four White House years. They said the opposite yesterday. In doing so'they put the decision entirely up to Eisenhower. It is not unusual for active men like Eisenhower to ha^ve—a—sense of indestructibility. They can never again feel that way after a heart attack. It is piercing and tangible evidence of mortality. .No one who has ever had an attack can forget this: Result of Deterioration The attack was the result of deterioration in a blood vessel. Something in his body caused .that deterioration. So a man who has had an attack has more reason to believe that there Is deterioration which will cause another attack than has a man who has never had an attack. There was no reason for Eisenhower's doctors to think he might have a heart attack, up to last Sept. 24. Now, as he knows, he could have another tomorrow even though his doctors tell him, from what they can see, he could serve actively for 5 to 10 more years _ The uncertainty of the President's life, or any man's, was illustrated yesterday by his personal physician Ma], Gen.' Howard M. Snyder, who told a news conference: * "I thought he was in very good health just prior to his heart attack—I would say we were a little led astray in our estimate that he was as well as we thought he was . . . We don't know that he won't have another cardiac accident." For Good of Country That possibility, and what it might, mean to the country, will be on Eisenhower's conscience as he turns over the problem in his mind. He' has emphasized his decision will be based on what he thinks is good for the country. He doesn't think it's good for the country for a president to die in office or become unable to carry on his ]ob. He has said it is a , "very critical thing to change governments in this country at a time that it is unexpected." At the same time he knows that a man who has had a heart attack may never have another. Since that is a possibility he may feel that it is good for the country for him to take a chance on serving a second term.

It Was under Spanish control from mi-1800 when it reverted to Prance, ceded to the United States in 1803 and was chartered as a city in 1822. St Louis today, as it was to 1764, ranks first in the world as a raw fur market, also as a horse and mule market. LaSalle made, first settlement in Texas on Feb. 18, 1685.

The first words sent on the experimental line between Washington and Baltimore (1844) were "What hath God Wrought?" The first real cure for dandruff was invented by a Frenchman. He called it the guillotine. From middle age on, everything of interest is either illegal, immoral or fattening. The celebration of St. Valetine's Day receives less attention in our country than in England or Scotland. Of'its origin little can be said, except that the day was so called for St. Valentine, a prebyter, who was beheaded under Claudius, the Emperor. St Valentine was first beaten with clubs then beheaded. In the church of Fraxedes at Rome, the| greater part of his remains are still preserved, where the gate Porto Del Popolo , was, formerly named for him — Porto Valentine. described them when Mrs. Ed tch-to cook.

Of course you know to slice them or how else would you have cookies? Thin, too. • These will keep for weeks before baking, but if they last through the day after baking, you don't like cookies and coffee as I do. Ernest Hemmingway summed it up this way: "What is moral is what you feel good after and what is immoral is what you feel bad after." All of the .animals except man know that the principal business of life is to enjoy it. A lot of folks won't throw away life at one time, but they will throw away a'little of it each day. It's a sign of passing youth when man begins to check up on his illusions. This was said by Ovid who was borr in 43 B. C. "How little you know about the age you live in if you fancy that honey is sweeter than cash in hand." Honiea words like bees, gilded and sticky, with a little sting.

That's how I Tr- be ignorant of one's ignorance is the malady of the ignorant. 1 Abe Lincoln had a lot of dry wit as you know. One of the things he once said about one of his acquaintances went down in history. Speaking of the man he said, "He reminds me of the man who murdered both his parents, and then, when sentence was about to be pronounced, pleaded for mercy on the grounds that he was an orphan." I guess I'm just an Ignorant so and so, but for years I had my own definition of a poet laureate. Maybe there are others'who are just as ignorant. So if there is, this information is for you and the smart alecs don't have to look over my shoulder. A poet laureate, I have iound out, is an English official appointed for life. The appointment is an official Playboy Enters Guilty Plea To Oil Stock Swindle Charge NEW YORK (/P) — Eobert H. Schlesinger, 38 - year-old playboy son of a millionaire mother, pleaded guilty yesterday to an oil »tock swindle. He had used $132,000 of the proceeds from a shaky Louisiana oil promotion to buy jewelry for actress Linda Christian.. The husky,, unmarried Schlesinger faces a possible maximum sentence of 10 to 30 years. He might get off with less by making restitution to the three men he duped in the oil deal.

She proved it last night. Two youths entered her small beer store and growled, "This is a holdup." Mrs. Linneman reacted swiftly. "I hit the nearest one right in the eye with a right swing," she told police. When her first swing brought a howl of pain .from one youth, the other bolted out the door, she said. The one who caught the punch dazedly started for the door but ran into it and couldn't get away until Mrs. Linneman had swung a few more times. "I was-so mad they could have shot me and I wouldn't have felt it," said" the small woman. "But I didn't notice whether they had a gun. "To think that two young punks like that would try such a thing. They should have been doing their homework." Cisco Kid Films Bring Suit SANTA MONICA, Calif.

Steinberg, Schlesinger's lawyer, told the cout: "He realizes the foolishness of his past acts and as a fist step to- wads staightening out his life he has to realize that he has wronged other people and to make whatever redress is possible." Flight Instructor Steinberg said Schlesinger, an Air Force veteran, now has a steady job as a pilot and flight instructor. Schlesinger's mother, the former Mona Williams^ inherited 12 million dollars in 1953 from her second husband, Harrison Williams. She is now married to Count Albert Edward Bismarck. She has long been rated one of the world's best dressed women. Schlesinger was the object of a six-month international search before he voluntarily returned from a Canadian hideout last December. At first he pleaded innocent to eight counts covering a $330,000 swindle. Yesterday, he was allowed to plead guilty to two counts, covering $170,000 of the total. $30,000 Apiece Schlesinger got three men to invest in the Louisiana promotion by telling them the deal was so good that his mother was investing million of her own money in it. Richard and John W. Herzfeld, Milwaukee department store owners, were taken for $30,000 apiece. Robert B. McCulloch, a Los Angeles auto dealer, first gave Schlesinger $120,000 and later followed with a check for another $160,000. McCulloch -stopped payment on the check after Schlesinger, had invested $13^,000 of it in jewels for Miss Christian, former wife of actor Tyrone Power. The check bounced and -a big Fifth Avenue jewelry firm, Van Cleef & Anpels, demanded that Miss Christian return the jewels. At first she refused, but later returned them for an undisclosed settlement. Schlesinger fled after his indictment last May 26.
