Jan. 13--«J.R-- The Ike-for-president boom looks today like the fastest moving thing in American politics. Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower just about took the brakes off the movenifnt yesterday. He avoided thc direct issue raised by entry ot a slate of delegates in his be- hdi in the March 9 New Hampshire preferential primary. Unless the general takes himself out shortly in no uncertain language, he will be in thc pre- convention campaign for the Republican presidential nomination to stay and to win or take a licking. He won't be able to control it himself. Endorsed by Tobey Announcement that an Eisenhower delegates slate had been entered in New Hampshire was tollowed promptly by endorsement of Ike by Sen. Charles W. Tobey, '"For some time," said Tobey, "I have been giving serious thought as to which man of the several possible candidates for Republican nomination is best quali- iied to lead this nation in this time of great crisis. I have come to the conclusion that Dwight D. Eisenhower is that man." With the issue raised so direct- Jv a number of Washington political experts believed Ike would be smoked out on some definite statement, perhaps removing himself from politics beyond recall.

Mr?. Dorris was introduced by Mrs. Jim O'Neil, president of the Garden club. Mrs. Dorris suggested that efforts be extended toward removing cr screening unsightly areas at the suburban approaches to the city, improving the visual aspects of the township park and other actions toward a general improvement in the appearance of the city.

Wallace H. Graham, the White House doctor, admitted to Senate speculation investigators today that he made a $6,165.25 profit in four months of commodity trading, instead of "losing my socks" as he had earlier insisted. He denied ever receiving any "inside" information from anyone to assist his trading. He said he went into commodity speculation on the advice of his broker last summer in an effort to recoup an $11,102.86 loss in the stock market. His commodity profit reduced his net loss to $4,847.61. Graham also admitted to the Senate Appropriations subcommittee headed by Sen. Homer Ferguson, R., Mich., that his previous statement about getting out of the commodity markets on Oct. 7 was incorrect. .

Harry Brisker, Bache customer's man who handled Graham's account, followed the White House doctor to the stand and testified that he could not recall Graham ever directing-him to close out Graham's deals in wheat or other commodities. When Graham's speculations first were disclosed earlier this his broker on Oct. 7, two days after President Truman denounced "gamblers in grain" to find out if he held any commodities.

Meat -- No pork, beef or lamb will be sent to Europe for the next 15 months^ "Nothing involved will change in any way the necessity or lack of necessity for price control or allocations."
