PAOB BMJKTBEM BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.V COURIER NJVWS FRIDAY. DECEMBER t. 19W First it Was 'Will Ike Run?'But Now Question Is 'Can He?' By JAMKS MAR LOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — President Eisenhower is 65. The Republicans hope he will run again. He's their chief hope of winning in 1956. But can he run? The word of his doctors on whether he can run and what they tell him — perhaps in February — depends on the condition of his heart. But one of the most vital things they cannot tell him about at al' 1* the condition of his arteries. There was nothing wrong with Elsenhower's heart the moment before he suffered the attack. The trouble was in one of the blood vessels to the heart. Its walls had thickened. Finally blood through that vessel was shul OH. This lack of blood damaged the heart. Eventually a scar formed. Then this problem arose as il doee in such cases: Just how badly was the heart damaged? That would take time to show. How could the damage show? The heart could get enlarged. Varying waves on the electrocardiogram would in dieate something wrong too. Constant Checks The doctors have been making constant checks. So far they've reported Eisenhower has been doing allrlght. H they found the heart was too damaged to undergo the rigors of the presidency, they'd tell him so. They haven't yet. They are still checking. Immediately this question arises: th« question about his arteries, not his heart. One blood vessel was affected 40 the point of closing. If one ves- »-4 was in bad shape, one might ask, isn't It reasonable to assume the other vessels to the heart are just about as bad and that it's only a matter of a short time before anoher closes and he has another attack? According to Expert K isn't reasonable to assume *at, and this is said on (head- vice of one of the best heart doctor? in. the country. Why? Because only one section of one artery may have been so thickened it would dose. This was tile specialist's explanation: Doctors know that one vessel was badly diseased. The closing of it was proof. But they don'it know whether the other vessels are in that shape. Eisenhower might never have another heart attack. But the older a man gets, generally, the more the deterioration in his blood vessels. Generally that is. And generally, a man younger than Eisenhower would have less reason to expect a heart attack than Eisenhower. In Touchy Israel, Guns Are Part of Plowmen's Tools JERUSALEM (/I*;—On the world's sU'iuiyest bat lief rout, it's winter plowing time, and the plowman curries a nun. On both .sides of the touchy Israeli-Jordan frontier through the Samarnm mid Judean hills, plowmen are cutiing their furrows right up to the border line. On hill crests and in valleys behind the mare soldiers in jeeps, with automatic arms and mortars. When a plowman steps across ihe line, firing often starts. On both siaes plowmen have given their lives for a few more feet, of soil. Some of the soldiers have di<-d too. Much the same thing is happening along Israel's frontiers with Egypt and with Syria. 1 This is the fragile mice in the Middle East war where six years oi' armistice have not brought peace. Despite reix-Med pleas from United Nations truce supervisors, both sides insist, on planting their fields to the Jast inch of the armi- ' stice demarcation line. Each side teels this puts a clincher on their claims to the land, against any future negotiation or compromise. Atlee Undecided About New Title LONDON l.Vt— Clement R.
