(Daily News Photo) Modern Republicanism Has Proved Itself, Jubilant President Declares WASHINGTON I* -- President Eisenhower, jubilant o v e r a smashing re-election victory, said today he uould work with all his strength "for 168 million Americans here at home and for peace in the world." A tumultuous ovation greeted Eisenhower as he appeared at a victory rally a few minutes after his opponent Adlai Stevenson conceded defeat arm sent Eisenhower "warm congratulations." The 66-year-old President had scored a great triumph in a career marked by triumph, by rolling up a bigger victory over Stevenson than he did in 1952. And Eisenhower told a Republican party celebration at the Sheraton-Park hotel at 1:45 a.m.: "I think that modern Republicanism has now proved itself. And America has approved of modern Republicanism." Eisenhouer's \ictory talk was made to a wildly cheering crowd of about 2.000 party / faithful in the hotel ballroom and to a nationwide televisi6n and radio audience. He said he u anted to make a pledge, and then \\ent on to say: "With whatever talents the good God has given me and with whatever strength there is in me. I will continue-- and so will my associates--to do just one thing: to work for 168 million Americans here at home and for peace in the world." Even as he received election returns last night, Eisenhower kept close watch on developments in Soviet-crushed Hungary and the Middle East. About midnight the White House announced that Eisenhower had just received a Patrick J. Croughan, Was Navy Employe Patrick Joseph Croughan, , died of a heart attack at his home. "very friendly and encouraging" message from French Premier Guy Mollet regarding efforts to halt the shooting in Egypt. The detailed contents of the message were not made public. Eisenhower and his family went to the hotel about 10 p m. after they had checked early election returns at the White House while having a quiet dinner. Eisenhower associates sensed early that he was going to win "big.'' 1 But even after the result became certain, Eisenhower deferred his ballroom appearance until he received word that Stevenson had conceded. When uord of that concession reached the crowd in the ballroom three floors below the presidential suite a joous shout went up. A few minutes later Eisenhower and his party appeared. Time and again he stepped forward on the stage to acknowledge the applause and cheers. Time and again both arms went above his head, outstretched in his familiar campaign salute. At his side was Mrs. Eisenhower, radiant with an armful of oink roses. With them were Vice President Nixon, also re-elected, and lis w i f e ; the Eisenhowers' son and daughter-in-law.. Maj. and Mrs. John Eisenhower; and the First Lady's mother Mrs. John S. Doud. Mrs. Eisenhower waved a kiss :o the crowd, and the Nixons also took a bow. Nixon, m presenting Eisenhower, called the election result "a Tremendous \ o t e of appro\al" of Eisenhower's first term and his administration's policies. Then it was Eisenhower's tum. He started by saying, "This is a solemn moment." then added: "It is a \ e r y heartwarming experience to know that our labors --your efforts of four vears h a \ e achieved that level where thev are ( approved by the United States of Croughan, ,49, America in a vote. "Such a \ote as that cannot be Newport To Join Clothing Drive For Hungarians A collection of warm clothing, blankets and other necessities, for the Hungarian refugees who are streaming into Austria by thousands, has been started by Mrs. Pierrepont Johnson of 'Ridgemere' on LeRoy Avenue.

HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON W--President Eisenhower today called congressional leaders of both parties to a White House meeting Friday for discussion of steps toward creation of a lasting peace in the Middle East. Eisenhouer's press secretary, James C. Hagerty, said the conference also would deal with the situation in Central Europe. That would include the picture in Hungary and Poland. Hagerty said that '!at the present time" Eisenhower has no plans to call a special session of Congress. Hagerty also announced that the President would confer later with Secretary of Defense Wilson and Adm. Arthur W. Radford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Asked w h e t h e r that session would deal with this country's role regarding a United Nations police force for the strife-ridden Middle East, Hagerty replied: "I think that would be a fair assumption." He said it already as been made clear in the United Nations that the United States will not contribute any troops. Hagerty said this country's role will be confined to h e l p i n g with transportation, and other supply and s u p p o r t measures. The Friday morning conference of Democratic and Republican congressional leaders will provide Ei- senhovyer with his first opportunity to review the situations in the Middle East and Central Europe with them. Those Speaker invited include H o u s e Sam Rayburn (D-Tex), House Republican Leader Joseph W. Martin Jr. (Mass), Senate Republican Leader William F\ Knowland (Calif), and Senate Democratic Leader Lyndon Johnson (Tex).
