PAGE EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 198J The Name Is Mr Eisenhower And: The Address Is Gettysburg By DOL'GL AS LARSE.V NKA Staff Correspondent GETTYSBURG, Pa. — (NEA) — They're preparing for history to strike here again. This time it takes the form of moving the functions of the White House to Ike's 496-acre farm on the edge of town when the President is well enough to make the trip some time in November. _ History struck here first when the Union and the Confederacy clashed in the bloody Civil \\-ar battle of Gettysburg. But as of now, Gettysburg citizenry is inclined to rate Ike's expected arrival ahead of the neatly stacked cannon balls, rusty field pieces and stone monuments which line the highway into town. During the remainder of Ike 'a term much of the work of the White House will be done in Gettysburg. Preparations now under way make that certain. Unsettled details include the exact date of Ike's arrival and how long it wil,l be before he can begin using the White House in Washington as a part-time office. There is also the chance that doctors will want him to go some place where he can get more sunshine for a few weeks this winter. Gettysburg can be raw in the winter. However, he will be coming here soon, bringing ihe bulk of the work of the White House with him. .Two telephone cables, each witn 26 lines, have already been strung into Ike's residence from near-by Hanover, Pa. That is the main toll and exchange point for the independent United Telephone Co. of Psnn- sylvania which serves the area. I This work was done i cooperation with the Army Signal Corps, j The United switchboard in Gettys- j burg will be handling some of the! White House calls. Some will come j through Hanover. The cables also; include private lines connecting; Ike's residence directly with Wash- j ington. There will have to be some j kind of small switchboard on the I farm itself, j This new communications line will be adaptable to any telecasting of presidential messages or speech- i es which Ike might make direct: from his residence. j This year Ike bought a 21-acre | section of land which borders both ! his property and the official nation-,; al battlefield preserve. Workmen FARM HOUSE THAT WILL become White House is Inspected by the president (center, in are busily putting up a fence around this new section to aid the. securit efforts of the Secret Service. On the national park land, a few hundred feet from the entrance to the farm, workers are now installing a large parking lot. They have orders to finish it before Ike's arrival. Arrangements are being made to install a press room in a hall downtown which adjoins the local movie theater. Western Union is putting in eight extra channels to handle the news copy which will be flowing out of here. Living quarters for the White House staff and reporters who will be here are not considered a prob- I em. lem. Henry Scharf, manager of. the J Gettysburg Hotel, says.

It's doubtful if Ike will do any flying between Gettysburg and Washington very soon after he is well enough to make the trip. The auto ride is less than two hours. But Al Sirohmeier, manager of the local airport, is prepared to get plenty of official visitors flying into his 2,200- foot grass strip. A twin engine C-47 is about the largest plane that can land on the field. Ike's small twin-engine plane will be used to move some visitors in and out.
