President Eisenhower planrrsi to mark the occasion by sending Dulles a letter of congratulations. Dulles planned to spend the day at his home in the Rock Creek Park section of the Capitol. But on Monday a belated anniversary party is being given him by his office staff. The staff will present him with a collection . of his- famous penciled "doodles" which he scrawls as he thinks. Dulles attended the 1907 Hague Peace Conference as a secretary to his grandfather, former Secretary of State John W, Foster. Dulles' grandfather was hired by the Imperial Government of China to be its representative at the conference. Therefore, Dulles, who was a 19-year-old junior at Princeton University at the time, broke into diplomacy as a secretary of the Chinese delegation to the Hague conference. After a lifetime of diplomacy and working in the field of international law, Dulles became Secretary of State in January, 1953. He has traveled 400,707 miies to attend international conferences (UP) — The (j ur j n g jj le j ast 53 mon^s Saturday Evening, June 15, 1957.
