Ogden Standard-Examiner, Wednesday, October 6, 1971 7A Expanded Eisenhower Center Awaits Rededication ABILENE, Kan. (AP) —The Eisenhower Center, which has grown like Topsy since it was conceived 25 years ago as a tribute to Dwight David Eisenhower, marts another expansion Thursday. The Eisenhower Museum- one of four buildings in the center—will reopen to the public after almost a year and a half during which it was expanded and remodeled. Formal rededication ceremonies are Oct. 14. Attending the rededication, which also marks the 81st anniversary of Eisenhower's birth,' •will be Mamie Eisenhower,' widow of the president, and Gen. Lauris Norstad, who followed Eisenhower as commander of North Atlantic treaty Organization forces. President Nixon, whose daughter Julie is married to Eisenhower's grandson David, has been invited. The Eisenhower Center is on 13.4 acres of land, in this Kansas plains town and includes the frame home where Eisen- hower grew -up, the- Place of Meditation where he was bur- "-ied in April 1968, the Eisenhower Library . and the museum. • The museum .was; built during Eisenhower's first term as ..president and after, the expansion, which will take another five years to finish; will provide room for the most complete presidential. museum in the nation, according to its curator, William K. Jones. Another 15,000 square feet have been added to the 20,000- square-foot area of the original museum and two of four planned galleries have been completed. One completed gallery depicts Eisenhower's like and the orher features works of art presented to him while he was president and duplicates of gifts he gave world leaders. The other two galleries will focus on Eisenhower's military career and his two terms as president, 1953-1961. Admission to the museum is SO cents and officials hope the additions to the building will spur, attendance which reached a peak of one million visitors in 1969. Further plans for the center include a nearly $1 million -visitors reception area and possible acquisition of a two-acre site now occupied by an elementary school. Jnhn E. Wickman, director of the Eisenhower Library across the street .from the museum and the man in over-all charge of the entire center for the General Services Administration said a principal advantage. of the museum enlargement will be elimination of crowding and pedestrian traffic jams. Curator Jones stressed the' educational aspects of the-museum, calling it a "teaching museum." "I believe we not only have an obligation to show the people these objects, but I think we also have an obligation to show them the importance of what he (Eisenhower) did as a military man and as president," Jones said. Wickman said, "The addition and new museum give us the best chance we have ever had to educate the visiting public. The whole thing was planned for the protection of the exhibits and convenience of the public." Labor Union Convinces Prison To Carry Out Major Reforms PICK OF THE PUNCH EASE INTERNATIONAL TENSION X ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A un-i ion and state penal officials have agreed on prison reforms, ending a threat by guards • to lock inmates in their cells and perform no duties. "For the first time in American history, a labor union has induced a state government to institute major reforms in its penal and correctional system," the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employes said in a statement Tuesday night. The -union had threatened to order its prison guard members to lock prisoners in their cells on. Thursday. The only duties the guards would have per- formed during the lock-in would have been to feed the inmates. The threatened lock-in came on the heels of last month's rebellion at Attica State Prison in which 10 guards and 32 inmates lost their lives. OUTLINED/REFORMS State Correction Commission-, er Russell G. Oswald outlined the reforms in a letter to William Ciuros Jr., president of lie union's Council 82, which represents state corrections officers. The agreement calls for establishment of one extra-maximum-security prison for about 600 hardened inmates, selected 'by corrections officials; purchase of new safety and security equipment, hiring of more guards and a training program for corrections officers. Also secured was a pledge from state officials to provide better treatment for inmates- including-more nutritious food, more frequent showers and increased rations in clothing, toi-l let paper and other personal, hygiene items. Oswald said Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller had agreed to make available $800,000 in emergency funds for the purchase of new equipment, including firearms, and communications and protective gear. Sato Supports Peking's Entry Into U.N., Monetary Changes O »n. tOROiwo TMJECKAM HTOICAW PUNCH' "Do you call that ominous Covering?" MIYAZAKI, Japan (AP) — Prime Minister Eisaku Sato said today he welcomes the. projected visit of President Nixon to Peking and mainland China's admission to the United Nations because they will "greatly ease international tension." He also called'for rebuilding of the- international monetary structure as the first step .toward "new international cooperation" with the United States. Sato made the'remarks at a public forum that gave citizens a chance to exchange views with Cabinet ministers. Twelve of his ministers; attended. On Chinese representation in the United Nations, SATO said he has decided to "welcome the admission of the People's Republic of China" and "support its becoming a permanent member of the Security Council." He said his belief was that i having "China withdraw from international isolationism and participate as a member of international society would help ease tension in Asia." On the other hand, he added, "it would run counter with the realities of the international situation to expel Nationalist China, an important member of the United Nations since its founding, from the world organization." Expulsion of Nationalist China, Sato said, is liable to intensify tension. Sato said that was why Japan became a cosponsor of the U.S. two-Chinas resolution. The prime minister said he regretted that the United States levied a 10 per cent import surcharge which, he added, would seriously affect the economy of Japan and the rest of the world.
