FAGS TWELVE BLTTHEVTLLB (ARK.) CGUHTKH HZTVTS Eisenhower Was Reared in Near Perfect Place for U.S. Candidate Br KELMAN MORItf ABILENE, Knn. lA>-From n polltfcnl point of view, Gen. Dwight E, Eisenhower picked R good place to be reared, In fact almost a perfect place. It the men who nrc now directing his presidential ciunpnLgn had sal down to design a politically rte- Birabla background for him, they would have chosen these Ingredients: A small town, preferably in the Middle West. . . A medium-large family In the middle income bracket... A ( wo-s lory fr am e house, painted white with porches in front and back. . . ft would be comfortably but not expeiLsivnly furnished, with hooked rugs, rock- Ing chairs, an upright piano, and a large wall clock ticking in Uic Eilcncc of Ihe parlor. A church and a red brick schoolhouse would stand nearby, and be* yondj the wheat fields, and beyond them the enormous authority of the Great Plains. The candidate himself should be as typically American as his locale. . . Ho would like baseball and football and he would go fish- Ing with the crooked branch of R tree for a rod. . . The "old swimming hole" would be hidden in the woods not far away. Hie boy, however, would work after school and on Saturdays for his pocket money and later, to help with tho expenses of going to college. All the details, In short would be selected so BS to form a picture of an Intensely typical American boy In a setting totally familiar to millions of other Americans probably the greatest single group of people In the country. This Is precisely the background, complete to the last detail, from which Elsenhower emerged. It is the scene to which he returns next Wednesday for what •will be tlie intense stage of the campaign to obtain tho Republican nomination. The white frame house now has been deeded by the Eisenhowers to a foundation which made it a shrine dedicated to the United States armed forces. Abilene Itself Is a leafy little community of 5.800, quiet and with an air of modest prosperity. To this scene some 50,000' or more of Eisenhower's admirers. are expected to come on Wednesday when he arrives. The ceremonies Include a parade of floats depicting his life here, in West Point and overseas. A rnnjor speech, to be televised nationally, follows the pafnde. On Thursday a press conference with some 300 news nnd radio correspondents will be heid in a motion picture theater. Eisenhower has invited Repub- , lican delegates, governors and state chairmen to meet him here nnd discuss Issues. Commitleemeti said the response Is "very good." More thnn 100 from Kansas. Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska, Arkansas and Oklahoma arc reported to be on' the way. Tho general expects to meet others in Now York, Detroit and Denver. But only the ones that come to Abilene will see him against the background where lie started. British Natal May Quit African Colony in Constitution Dispute By AimiDK GAVSHON DURBAN, South Africa uv—Pro- Britlsh Natal, newest South African storm center, Ihls week for- liy warns It may quit the Union of South Africa because It considers the nationalist government has violated the constitution. The breakaway action, [f tried, could load to civil war In the opln- on of responsible government and anti-government leaders. Hut most South Africans seem lo think the crisis dividing the nation will not go that far. Government spokesmen have charged all talk of Natal quitting .he Union Is so much nntt-national- Isi propaganda. If Natal did walk out, they say, the grass would be •rowing in the streets of this thriving harbor city Inside six months. But many people of Ibis eastern seaboard province claim they are ^n'deadly earnest. The surface mood does not suggest they've been cleaning their fans in preparation for a big fight. t!ut already they arc at political action stations. Tho Provincial rnuncll which is .ike on American stale legislature, discusses tomorrow a resolution to t>e submitted to Prime Minister Daniel Malan's government. It calls for n new national convention to reaffirm the constitution of 1910. If malan says no to the request, leaders say positive but so far undisclosed action will follow. The Council resolutions arc sure ,o be passed. The antl-Malan forces :iave at) overwhelming majority. Public support for It will lie whipped up tonight nt the biggest mass meeting ever planned for Natal. Some 50,000 people are expected to attend. Natallans often have been accused by the nationalists of being more British than the Queen herself. Their dangers are now up, like antl - government forces throughout tile country, they believe the nationalists have broken both the spirit and the letter of the constitution by giving Parliament the veto power over constitutional decisions of the Union's high court. Though Malan pushed through his court bill ostensibly to further his White supremacy program, many Uriti.sfi - descended South Africans fear he has his sights trnineci also on the constitutional guarantee that both English and Afrikaans will be the official lan- BimKcs. Complete equutity between the English anil the Afrikaners keynoted the Act of Union, which Jolm-d the Cape Province, The Transvna], the Oratjge P'ree State and Natnl. But Natal's English complnin that the luilion's 4'/-ycar .story has bpen » succession of surrenders and compromises by the English, hi the interests of nat'-omil unity but actually to placate extremist Afrikaners. John Dewey Dies Wifh Pneumonia M>JW YOriK IJP) — Philosopher John Dcwcy. 92. often described as the father of Progressive Education, died last night. He was stricken with pneumonia Saturday, just a few days after he was reported recovering from a broken hip. He died nt his Fifth Avenue home. Few, if any, men had aa much Influence on educational thinking of his lime. Dewey's idea was that on the Individual child rather than on the .subject. "Learning by doing" was his basic bcllet. He thought that a pupil should learn through .scientific inquiry rather than have his mind stuffed with facts. His educational methods aroused much controversy, and It took about 50 years for them to gain general acceptance. A native of Burlington, Vt., Dewey was graduated from the University of Vermont in 1879 and took Ills Doctor of Philosophy degree from Johns Hopkins University. Baltimore, in 18B4. He started teaching at otice and continued In general a tree forms a "ring" on its trunk and branches every year, but in some years a long dry spell may prodxice a. divided ring that looks like t,\vo and In very bad years, the annual ring may be almost Invisible.
