Veto Record Indicates Ike fai^ l ^JS t One of Toughest Presidents' Falcon' Auto By JACK BELL i WASHINGTON iAP> — Presi- 1 dent. Eisenhower's unbrokpn re- 1 cord nf never having had a veto overridden is establishing him* as one of the toughest chief executives with which any Congress has dealt. The one-vote margin by which 132 Hoiise Republicans and ii Democrats sustained Eisenhower's veto of a SI .218.000.000 public works bill Wednesday left the dominant Democratic majority mired in new political frustration As it had 143 limes previously. Congress bowed to Eisenhower's rejection nf a measure that a majority of both houses had supported previously. In comparison, 12 of Harry S. Truman's 250 vetoes and <1 of FranklinJT Roose- Times Herald, Carroll, la. Q Thursday, Sept. 3, 19S9 Q velt's ti31 vetoes were overriden. Beyond his veto record, however. Eisenhower is demonstrating that a president who stands his ground can come close to getting what he wants out of a Congress overwhelmingly controlled by the opposition party. This is no mean political accomplishment and politicians of both parties recognize it is likely to have some deep-seated effect on the outcome of next year's presidential and congressional elections. 1 .Some leading Democrats admit privately that Eisenhower has grabbed the ball away from them and is making a lot of political yardage with his budget-balancing and anti-inflation maneuvers. His vetoes have all but destroyed the bold, imaginative programs Democratic leaders were talking about in January. Timet after time they have had to tailor their production to fit the pattern laid down by the President, as they seem likely to do in a new public works bill. ! The general effect on this has been to draw a sharper line between the parties on the highly important economic issue. In the public mind, Eisenhower appears to ha\e become to many the symbol of the "savers," battling the Democratic "spenders."

The Corvair will be the first of the new ones into the marketplace, making its public bow about Oct. 2. The Falcon will go on sale Oct. 8. The Valiant probably will be along about Nov. 14.

"The only new discovery was another parachute. This accounted for the ninth crew member but it added nothing to clues since it was located nearest the wrecked aircraft indicating that it helonged to the pilot—the last to jump."
