PA'OB TWO BtYTHEVTLLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAT, APRIL 8, 1958 Controling Temper Helps Ike Keep Harmony with His Foes By JAMES MARI-OW Associated Press Nc»'« Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) -- One of Ihe differences between Ihe administrations of Presi- 1 dent Eisenhower and President Truman is the difference between fire and rain. The peppery Truman spurted flame when he got mad enough. He scorched people he thought were shoving him around, particularly Republicans in Congress. He had i sharp j tongue,- and in public.

The continuance of the American way of life l« dependent upon our into young Americana the same religious principles from which American itself has grown. This Is the llth annual ovservance and dont' let the cause down. If you really want to impress your small children, 'why not get up bright and early and go along with them. Who knows, you might enjoy it and want to make a regular practice of taking your child to learn more about God. That's the American way of doing it, you know. Don't make U» nutate that I made when I suggested to my young son atendlng Ole Miss, to buy his date for his formal fraternity dance, an "inexpensive" characteristic of a mother) gardenia corsage. All girls love while flowers, I told him. Son, Instead of a gardenia corsage, he had to overdo It and buy one of those rare specimen white orchids, the kind Bi»V the bridt tops her prayer book with and later "she pinned the whit* orchid from her bridal bouquet at her shoulder lor traveling." Nothing cheap about mj ton, where corsages are concerned. Those are the reasons why mothera get gray and there went my Easter bonnet. But the Republicans in Congress were a lot rougher on Truman than Uie Democrats are on Eisenhower. The Democrats may open up as the 1956 elections draw near. They're showing some signs of it now. Eisenhower, unlike T ru ma n, holds his tongue and his lire, in public at least. As he says himself, he doesn't get personal. That sort of knocVts the ground out — beforehand — from under anyone with a yen to attack him. Eisenhower dampens his opposition and his critics by being as Impersonal and cool as rnin. In public, that is. What he .says In the privacy o[ the White House Is not known. He Is said to have quite a temper. Even if he had a desire to slus the Democrats, this would be a poor time to try it anyway. Hf; needs their help since they will control Congress until the 1056 elections But. while Eisenhower refrains from adding fuel to the fire of his opposition by public and personal criticism, he and his assistants apparently work hard behind the scenes to overcome roadblocks. A good example wns In the recent attempt of some Democrats to give everyone a $20 income tax cut. Elsenhower's administration said the government couldn't afford it. He got enough votes lined up In Congress to save the day for him. Truman had trouble with Sen. McCarthy (B-Wls) and the late Sen. Tail (R-Ohlo). He blasted both of them. They returned the compliment. For a while after he won the Kepublican presidential nomination from Taft It seemed Elsenhower might have trouble with him too. But Elsenhower won him over. Taft became hU most valuable helper. Elsenhower had trouble with McCarthy but handled him much differently from Truman, and more effectively. Eisenhower himself hns never said ft word against the Wisconsin senalor. But his aides put the .skids under Ihe senator. The result: Eisenhower Is still riding high while McCarthy has been pushed into the background and Is atlll probably Irylng to figure oul what hit him. To go throuiih the McCarthy hurricane, with his popularity seemingly undirntnUihed, was no . mean political (eat for a man who hn.s called himself a political amateur, i Eisenhower's career may sUnd j or fall on something not directly connected with poltticlaan at all For Instance, a decision he made on a crisis In Asia might win him re-election or wreck him.
