Judging from a statement issued by the White House, the President could be described as Ihe victim of a cerebral attack, but the White House physician, Maj. Gen. Howard McC.

Snyder said, however, that the seriousness of the President's condition must await further examination. The President's doctors said that during Monday night he suffered "a slight impairment in speech" which had "improved perceptibly" loday. Snyder and Lt. Gen.

Broadway late "this week, it was revealed Tuesday by Mayor Ralph Eberts. The chimney had been classified as a hazard to pedestrians since bricks at the top were falling on or near the sidewalk. . .City officials contacted the Slater estate h«irs early th.is month, notifying them that the small building at the rear of the old Slater house would have to be removed, the house itself repaired or razed, and the chimnsy removed. Priority was given to removal of the chimney, since it. was viewed as a menace. The city told the heirs that they would.have to get the work done, or the city would do it at the expense ol the estate. When no action was taken by the estate the city discovered that no fund had been set up for accomplishing such projects, and the heirs were again asked to remove the chimney immediately. No action was forthcoming and it was decided to havu firemen remove the chimney, Mayor Eberts said. Between those two nations.
