Dwight D. Eisenhower said today the general does not think a lifelong professional .soldier would ninke Ule best presidential timber. Many admirers and would-be political associates of the Army chief of staff have-urged him repeatedly to make himself available for the 19.48 presidential contest but he hns rejected the suggestions. It was learned that a group of some of Ills oldest friends in the MtdWcst made nn especially urgent plea about six months ago but he '(old them it wns out of ihe ques- I tion. . - Eisenhower. It was said, offered these basic arguments against his • candidacy: • i 1. His entire training and back: ground are military. He feels Ihnt • military men, no matter how dis- ; tinguished in thr- arts of warfare,. . are not ideal presidential timber. I • He does not believe a professional .' soldier is in close enough touch j , with the mass of American thought. . ..; 2. Because he feels that President | Truman will be the 1948 Deino- k cratic nominee, he does not want . to be la the position of running . against his Commander-in-chief. ' ; 3. in his own case—the case of a professional soldier — Eisenhower Photographer Reels , fee's ho reached the pinnacle ill • accepting the German surrender as ; allied commander in Europe. Not . for a moment does this Imply nny . disregard for the presidency "But ' simply his feeling as a military , man who ho s reached the peak in . his chosen field. • ; The friends <Aio heard these ' arguments six months ago say the ] general's attitude remains un> changed today. Conseqiiently, (liey • are convinced he will never be v available for the presidency. Pdragould Lad Injured When Cycle Hits Truck ;..
