Miaros-Trftmn* Ike Meets With Gobi net- Plans Tuesday Confab WASHINGTON (UP5—President Eisenhower, stepping up his 'recovery pace, presided over a cabinet meeting for an hour and 40 minutes Monday and then decided to lead off Tuesday's congressional briefing at the White House. _Underscoring what his physicians continued to call an "excellent recovery" from- his mild stroke exactly a week ago, the chief executive earlier spent 20 minutes working .in his office following his return from a weekend at his Gettysburg, Pa., farm. At the President's request, the cabinet meeting opened with a few moments of silent prayer. The session was summoned to prepare the groundwork .for Tuesday's meeting with Republican and Democratic legislative leaders. Ike Chips A Few In addition to the cabinet, several other top government officials attended the meeting which began at 1:31 p.m. c.s.t. The president stayed until about 3:10 p.m. and then returned to his office for a second time to confer with Secretary of State John Foster Dulles. Afterward, Eisenhower went outside and spent about 15 minutes chipping golf shots on the back lawn of the White House. This was another recovery "first." The cabinet meeting continued after the Chief Executive left. But Press Secretary James C. Eagerly, who relayed details to rep-ort- ers, said the President was: present for "the main" discussion. This, he said, related to the new budget and important legislative programs. Hagcrty said the meeting also included a "preliminary discussion" of the annual state of the union message which the President is scheduled to deliver tc Congress next month. Both Parties Hope; Hint At Draft Movement Handley, Jenner's "First Choice," Has No Comment INDIANAPOLIS 'CUP)—At least half a dozen Republicans jumped into a guessing gam-5 Monday about who will try to take over the U. S. Senate seat William E. Jenner says he plans to vacate Craig, Lt. Gov. Crawford Parker, and Matthews. Parker and Craig both said they would not be available for the nomination. Observers felt Jenner might plan to run in I960 for governor, a post he is known to have' desired for several years. But Parker, an ally of both Jenner and Handley, has been tagged the Republican choice to succeed Handley.

Democrats, at first jubilant over their chances to win an Indiana seat for the first time in 14 years, cautiously figured the fiery Bedford orator withdrew so ho could be drafted. Some Republicans hoped Jenner might be talked into changing his mind or that he might bow to a draft. At least two prominent Republicans said they were considering seeking Jenner's seat, but Governor Handley—whom Jenner called his "first choice"—was non-committal. Handley said in Chicago he would not make any statement "at this time" but he invited "any and all questions" when he returns to Indianapolis Wednesday. Aides in Handley's office were believed preparing a sta'.ement saying the governor intended to serve his full four-year term—thus ruling him out for any other office State Chairman Cass circui The court. Thimlar estate was esti- until 1960. Democratic Charles Skillen said lack of a specific reason for Jenner's announcement Saturday night "leaves him in a position to be drafted" and the timing of the statement "will give his lieutenants the opportunity to lay the ground work for a "draft Jenner movement." State Sen. D. Russell Bontrager (R-Elkhart), close friend of Jenner's, said he will decide in the next 30 days if he will seek Sen. William E. Jenner's seat. Bontrager said he wants to talk "about number of things" with Jenner, Handley, and Republican State Chairman Robert Matthews. He said he received "innumerable telephone calls from over the state urging me to run." Rep. E. Ross Adair of Indiana's 4th District said he is "definitely interested" in succeeding Jqnner "if there is a reasonable chance of success, and I think there is a good chance of Republican, success next November." Others mentioned as possible candidates were 7th District Congressman William G. Bray, Marion County Prosecutor John G. Tinder, former Gov.
