PAGE TEN BLTTHEVT.LB (ARK*.) COURIER WEDNESDAY, MAY 13, 1981 Truman Asks Nation to Back Eisenhowers Foreign Policy JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Democrat Harry S. Tinman lias asked the nation to back the fordgi; policy of his Republican successor, President Dwlght D. Eisenhower. In his first public address since leaving the White House, Truman told a Joint session of the Missouri State Legislature yesterday: < "I sincerely hope and pray that rific political battles of any man* all of us will set behind the President of the United States and bock him up in the foreign policy of the United States so that we mas- keep the peace in the world, for its welfare and for the welfare of future generations." The 69 - year - old former President, who Eisenhower by did not mention name, said the foreign policy is not a partisan job. In addition to the legislators, an estimated 1,500 to 2,000 persons jammed the House of Representatives chambers in the State Capitol to hear Truman's 20-mimite talk. In R reminiscent mood, he also dwelled on the responsibilities of president. "Now there's a Jot of conversation about the powers of the President of the United States," he said. "Do you know what the powers of the President are? "Greatest Public Relations Man" "He's the greatest public relations man in the United States, and he spends 75 per cent of his time persuading people, not ordering them, persuading people to do what they ought to do without being persuaded. That's the job of the President of the United States, and it's an all-time job. I put in 17 hours a day and then I couldn't get it all done." Truman flew here in a Missouri National Guard plane and returned to his home town of Independence Immediately after his speech. In his talk the ex-President promised to continue working for the Democratic party. "I've had some of the most ter- alive. And I'm not through yet, he said. "From precinct to President : the United States of America .is long road and a rocky one, but want to tell you that I've enjoye it. . . "I've never borne a grudge an I've never forgotten a favor. Bea that in mind, you Democrats never bear a grudge, always b nice to your Republican friend because you may get them to vot the Democratic ticket some day.' Williamsburg To Make Last Presidential Trip WASHINGTON —The USS Wil llnmsburg will sail tomorrow for tlv last time as a presidential yucht. The gleaming white craft wil carry President Eisenhower and Mrs Eisenhower on a four-clay cruise that will take them (o Williamsburi Va., and Annapolis, Md. At the end of May the Williamsburg is being transferred back to the Navy, which plans to put it in mothballs a month later. Eisenhower has announced he is giving up the Williamsburg, which former President Truman used frequently, because, he regards It as symbol of needless luxury." Eisenhower has used the yacht only once —for a brief conference with French government leaders In March.
