fijday Evening, May Si, 1957. Events Clearly Reveal Ike Losing Control Over Party By LYLE C. WILSON United Pi-ess Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON (UP) — Events are spelling out for President Ei- senfcower what it means to be a lame duck Chief Executive. He and his successors are barred by the Constitution from a third term. What it means is this: That the most widely supported President ever put in office by the voters is losing control o"f his party seven months after his triumphant 'reelection. Elsenhower moved urgently within recent weeks to regain party command. He made two television appeals to the voters for support in his budget battle with Congress. After the second speech, White House Press Secretary James C. Hagerty shortly was telling ques- Delphi Thyra ICoontz, third grade teacher in the Pittsburg school has resigned according to an announcement by Harry Hatton County Superintendent. Miss Edna Kirkpatrick, Mrs. Garnelte Smith and Mrs. Virginia Delaney spent the week-end with Mr. and Mrs. Richard Sears and family at Anderson and attended a dance revue. Mrs. Lola Parks, Welfare Director in Carroll County, and Mrs. Florence MeCafferty attended a district Welfare meeting at Rochester, Monday for instructions for reviewing new record keeping procedure. Marriage lieenses have been is- was assumed Congress also the home folk with blunt instruc- tioners that Eisenhower's fan mail | sued here to Richard Lee Cree of had been heavily weighted in fa-1 Carroll County and Shirley Lee vor of the President's appeal for!

Lynch of route 1, Flora; and Lo Clarence Arthur Allen of Roek- field and Frances Kaye Ferguson, daughter of Mr. >and Mrs. B. W. Ferguson of Bringhurst. Sheriff C. L. Carey, State Trooper Dale Douglas and Deputy Sheriff John Miller were called to' Fra- •aers Beach on Lake Freeman Monday to investigate a breakin at the Frazier Consession house. Cigarettes and candy were missing. It was thought that a youth had been locked in the building at closing time Carey said. Andrew J. Powell has filed suit tions to give Eisenhower the funds he sought. It seems not to have worked out that way. The House of Representatives stood pat on its defense economies when the showdown votes came this week. The House clipped $2,565,275,000 from defense spending before sending the bill to the Senate by a vote of 394-1. Mr. Eisenhower's loss of party control is not adequately reflected in the fact Republicans that only 38 House deserted him on an earlier key economy vote and that 140 Republicans stood firm for this reason: He had asked the Republican congressional leaders lo move to restore to the defense bill $1,274,000,000 of the sums lopped off by the committee which sent the bill to the floor. House Republican loaders sought lo restore only about one-fourth of that sum. By lowering their sights from the sum sought by Eisenhower to .a much lesser sum, Republican House leaders believed they might hold the party line when the vote came. Had they gone after the $1,274,000,000 an urged by Eisenhower, a great many more House Republicans unrjuestionabiy would have been recorded as voting for economy and against the Repub-' llcan president. It all seems to add up to this; Congressional Republicans bulievc the President IB out of step with the voters on upending. These members <A Congress evidently bcliov,e their own records in favor of economy will have more voter appeal In the elections to come than anything Eisenhower can say or do for them. No legislators will be running next year or In JiMO on an "elect- me-and-help-Uco" platform. Eisenhower's time of vast power to reward and lo punish Is running out, Fifty Illini Students Jailed After Riot CHAMPAIGN, 111.
