This included barnstorming Europe, then tackling piles of legislative work at the close of congress, planning Khrushchev's visit and holding delicate conferences with the Soviet boss.

One administration official explains that the President, is in fine health and describes his spirit as excellent. He says: "The President realizes that all the pressure that he has been under lately is simply part of the job. He's not griping or complaining about anything." White House aides say that Mr. Eisenhower is till observing rigid health habits. He is restricted to a low fat diet which can't exceed 3,000 calories a day. He takes a two-hour rest at lunch and spends this lime either reading or napping. Aides say that he hasn't had time lately to do any painting. His work day usually begins inlking to the press at 7:45 a.m. and ends between 5:30 and fi:30 p.m. The only medicine he takes regularly is an anti-coagulant drug to prevent blood clots. He takes one dose a day, six days a week. This medicine, was prescribed following his 1955 'heart attack. Maj. Gen Howard McSnyder, the President's personal physician, gives him brief visual check-ups once or twice daily. His blood pressure is taken at periodic intervals during the week. He receives a complete physical examination at Walter Reed Army Hospital twice a year. The last one was just before he went to Europe. The President came out fine on that examination. Gen. Snyder approved the trip.

He explains that his doctor's pills haven't done much good. A sore throat, which hung on for awhile, has disappeared. During his stay at the La Qijhi- ta Home of George E. Allen, former Democratic National Committee secretary, the President is getting in a round of golf each morning and just taking it easy in the afternoon. If he has his way, no functions will be planned in his honor while he is there. Also he doesn't want to see any visitors. He has his fingers crossed that the climate will remain warm and dry. Recent temperatures in La Quinta have averaged about 90 degrees during the day and below 60 at night. One official feels that Mr. Eisenhower would deserve his California vacation even if he didn't have the cold. He says: "The California trip is the first vacation he has had this year. He did go to Gettysburg for a short time after returning from Europe, but that was just to catch up on his sleep." By TOM A. CULLEN NEA Staff Correspondent LONDON — (NEA) — While Americans crack down on corrupt union officials through law, the British are giving their labor racketeers the laugh treatment. Currently, Britons are laughing their heads off at a film comedy, "I'm All Right, Jack," which is the deadliest satire to date on trade union us*f and abuses. The slow-down, the wildcat strike, union feather-bedding, the shop steward who thinks he's Napoleon — all are lambasted in this newest film farce, which has some of the leftist unions hopping mad. In addition, the film aims a haymaker at nudist camps, commercial television. Ministry of Labor officials and the makers of detergents. The comedy is the work of John and Roy Boulting, Britain's top producer-director team who are best known in America for their mystery film, "Seven Days Before Noon." But now the Boultings, 45-year- old identical twins, have turned their talents to satire and are milking some of Britain's most sacred cows for laughs. Times Herald, Carroll, la Wednesday, Oct. 7, 1959 In recent film successes the have kidded the striped pants of the British Foreign Office and th brass hats off the Royal Army They even have invaded the law courts with their bewigged judge in search of fun. But in tackling organized labor the Boultings have taken on thei biggest target to date. In his grubby office in Soho, cornered producer-director John Boulting and asked him to explain the title of his latest comedy. "I'm All Right, Jack," he re lated is British Army slang which translates roughly as, "I'm, get ting mine, Jack — to ... with you." This, according to the director is the spirit of the age. "Everyone is out to feather his own nest, and to ... with the next guy," Boulting says. "And the worst offenders are to be .found in big business and the big trade unions." A nervous, sandy-haired man, with thick glasses and a bow tie, John paced his office as he talked. OFF THE MAP RICHMOND, R. I. (AP) - Although there are five post offices in the township of Richmond, you can't find the dot for Richmond on the map because there is no village or town by that name. The post offices are in the villages of Alton, Wood River Junction, Shannock, Kenyon and Wyoming. But perhaps this town of 1772 inhabitants is more famous for streets, ponds and locations. Among the more colorful names are Smallpox Lane, Quarrelsome Corners, Skunk Hill Road, Moonshine Swamp, Coward's Hole, and Frying Pan Pond. TARGETS FOB LAUGHS: Shop stewards In new British film. He spoke of the social revolu-l tion which began in 1939 and reached its peak when the British Labor Party was swept to power in J945. "Before 1939," he said, "thu elite was composed largely of the gentry. Today the elite is as much working class as it is old school tie. "The union boss is as much a member of 'The Establishment' as the Archbishop of Canterbury the editor of The Times, or the Governor of the Bank of England. "Of ail the sacred cows in Welfare State Britain there is none more sacred today than organized labor. That is why my brother and I decided to make this film." Had the unions tried to interfere with the film? • "The Trade Union Congress asked to see the script," he admitted wryly. "Naturally, I turned them down. I wrote and told them that since the subject was so dear to their hearts, I would not dream of putting them in the awkward position of having to sanction or censor the script." The unions did, however, pull a quickie strike on the movie set. In checking through their union :iles, the Association of Cine Technicians suddenly discovered that neither of the Boulting brothers had paid dues since 1953. On his technicality, a strike was called on an hour's notice. HILAND MODERN WAY TO BUY POTATO CHIPS The Fi%-flfth... and the Finest!
