PAGE TEN BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS MONDAY, DECEMBER 19, 19S» If Ike Does Run He Must Keep Campaigning Light By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — You can figure out — from what President Eisenhower's doctors said over the weekend — just what he can't do if he runs for re-election, and his doc-j tors haven't yet said he could. . . ; This is out: He will not be able to campaign in the usual way. Ihe usual ways means in-; tense and unpredictable physical exertion: plane hops, train rides, step climbing, hamlshak-; ing, impromptu speeches, lo'ng hours. | But, because of television, ne could campaign extensively with TV speeches and reach more voters than any of his predecessors, in the days before TV, if they had traveled the country for a year. M'» possible Eisenhower already hM decided not to seek a second term. It's unthinkable that he had made up his mind to run before his doctors say he's physically up to it or would decide to-try if they said he shouldn't. K the doctors say he shouldn't run — and they won't make iheir decision until after they check him In mid-February—Eisenhower could not, for his own sake and that oi the- country, go contrary to their ^ verdict. That would be asking the country to take a chance on a president whose doctors think he is a poor physical risk. Didn't Say Kis doctors didn't say in so many words—after examining him Satur- day—ttiat he could not run for the presidency m the traditional slam- bang, round - the - country, up-all- hours kind of campaign. But it was implicit in what they said. They said he should go South for a few weeks to get more exercise. Just what kind of exercise did they have in mind? The only kind they mentioned was knocking some golf balls around. That would involve some walking, of course, but far less walking than if he played nine holes of golf. It would be very moderate evercise. But what about playing some rounds of aolf, since it involves more exercise? Not until spring, his doctors said. And they said a round by spring, not rounds. Before his heart attack last September Eisenhower, played as much as 2f holes, a truly tough form of exercise. Xo Kid Anymore It's a sood bet the doctors won't Forest Fire \t Extinguished MOOSE JAW, Sask. Wi—A huge oil refinery fire which threatened the Bast Side of this prairie city of 30,000 people was put out early today.

Wallace appeared to file an application with the city oC Huntington for a 50-year extension of the franchise of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad it brought back a flood of memories. As a stripling lawyer Wallace had filed the original franchise application for the railroad 50 years earlier. let Eisenhower play 27 holes a^ain, ever, whether or not lie stays in '-he White House, and not only because he's had a heart attack but he's no kid anymore. He's 65. But if the doctors are so carom! about his exercise that they don't want him to play a round of goli till spring, they could hardly approve the vast faticue of the usual presigemial campaign for him just a few months later. Moderation in exercise for Eisenhower simply means cutting down on extreme forms of it. It doesn't necessarily mean he could not endure the daily routine of four more White House'years.
