The inside story was told publicly for the first time by Presidential Assistant Sherman Adams Monday night in a. speech to the Republican finance dinner at St. Louis. Adams gave this sequence of events: "The first indication that the President was indisposed was his own statement of feeling chilled after returning from the 'Washington airport, where he went to meet officially the head of a foreign state. He had to stand in the cold- for a considerable time. He thereupon wenl to the While House and went to bed. The doctor was called at once. "In turn the President's doctor i in consultation with other doctors [diagnosed that the President had, 'sustained what people commonly I call a minor stroke. Staff Acts Swiftly "Meanwhile.' on the business side- of the White House, a lot of things were going on. | "I at once telephoned the Vice President and advised him of the President's iliness. The same message was communicated to various members of (he President's cabinet. Key members of the White House staff were notified. "The night the President sustained his latest trouble, he was almost adamant about attending the state dinner he had arranged :for the King of Morocco. The day afterwards he put up a vigor- !ous argument about coming to his : office, then talked seriously about | holding a press conference. Failing to talk the doctors inlo cither of these ventures, he directed that " staff members bring him certain documents, and this was done. Activity Increases "The next day. . .he got more heavily into the business of his' office. The f.N owing day he left the White House to go to church with Mrs. Eisenhower. The next day he drove with Mrs. Kisenhow- er to his Gettysburg farm and spent the weekend there. He drove- back to Washington last Monday to atlend a cabinet meeting, met with iiis staff on certain pending problems, and the following two days met with the leaders of the Congress. On Thursday attended a two-hour meeting of the national security council." (The President went (a Gettysburg again last Thursday and returned to the White House Mon- .day.)
