Presidency No Man-Killing Job Only Six Chief Executives Died In Office By LYLE C- WILSON WASHINGTON —UP— Presidents of the United States earn their salaries right enough. But, this man-killing job business is mostly hokum. Only six presidents have died in office, three of them by gun shot. Another was incapacitated. The average age at death is 68 years, mighty close to the allotted" three score and in. J.Iore significantly, the survival average after leaving- the \Vhitc Hovise is 13 years as of now. The myth that the White House job is a man-killer is founded partly on the self-pity of some Presidents during and after their terms of office. The White House associates and political pals of Presidents have done much more to sell the idea, that the job is almost suicidal. This is particularly true in election years when politically allied members of Congress at any time are likely to delay public business by telling the House or Senate how hard their man in the "White House must work. Your correspondent began observing Presidents closely when Calvin Cnoiidge was in office and had a peck or two at Woodrow Wilson be Core .that. He has scon bad days or weeks. But so do golfers, ball players, and, even, non-political worldng stiffs, have bad davs and weeks. And some of them die comparatively young. PDR didn't look so good toward the last, there, but he was full of boom clear through his second term. Mr. Big was around considerably longer than most and accepted a fourth nomination when he would have been better advised to seek hospital rest. Counting the pay, the loose hours and fringe benefits, the presidency of the United States isn't a bad job at all. A good number of selfless patriots have their eyes on the White House right now for 1956 and later. There isn't one among them, including President Eisenhower, who would be likelyy to grab for a job that really lulled. 6:00 5:30 6:00 6:10 6:15 6:30 fi:45 7:00 7:30 «:00 8:30 9:00 10:00 J0:30 10:45 10:50 11:00 12:00 6:40 Morning- Devotional* 6:4;) George Koesner 7:00 Today 9:00 Ding- Dong School 9:30 Ernie Kovac 10:00 Home 11:00 Tennessee Ernie ,U:30 Feather Your Nest 12:00 TV Kitchen 12:30 Movie Date 2:00 NBC Theater 3:00 Date With Life 3:15 Modern Roraances 3:30 Queen For A Day 4:00 Matinee 4:30 Howdy Doody 5:00 Looney Town 5:35 Sun-Up Cartoons 5:30 Superman 6:00 World At Large 0:10 Today In Sports 6:15 News; Weather 6:30 Eddie Fisher 6:45 News Caravan 7:00 Truth or Consequences 7:80 Life of KUey 8:00 Curly Fox 8:30 Star Stage 9:00 Cavalcade of SporU 9:45 News!

Like several other ambitious Americans, including some Army deserters v.'ho thought they were getting in on a. good thing, hu would have wound up as close to hamburger as makes no differ, ence. Instead o£ guns thugs use razors and knives here, or lengths ot bicycle chain wrapped around the knuckles with a few inches lashing loose to gouge an eye or rip a cheek, More than one hopeless cripple wishes they did use guns—then maybe he would be dead and out o£ his misery instead o£ being a hulk in a wheelchair, his tendons slashed through by 7-azors. The British punlic doesn't pay much attention to its underworld or hear much about it. Two gangs , ROEBUCK AND CO will fight it out in the early -morning and perhaps there will be a paragraph in the newspapers reporting: that an unidentified man •was picked < up slashed from ear to ear. Not murdered, mind you, for the gangs here do not kill. They prefer to mark and maim. A man walking; around the streets of Soho with a long 1 scar on his face and throat is a, more effective warning to other gangs than a small stone in a cemetery in the suburbs. Right now, however. Britons are getting a look at what goes on in their own backyard and some arc doubtless wishing they hadn't been so virtuous about American. gang- sterism. | Several weeks ago Jack Comer, alias Jack Spot, and Albert Dimes, known as Italian Albert, waged a bloody struggle for a knife in a fruit shop in the Soho district which has been headquarters for the London underworld for 250 years.

Hy AJJ'KED T.KKfir CHICAGO — UP—The American yen for "better living" has upset some of the theories about market saturation, a study shows. The study was made by Admir- nl Finance Corp., which sampled. •!,- fiOO of its customers in Maryland. Kentucky, Flolda, Colorado" and Texas. Regardless of the varying views BUY A NEW 1956 FORD BEFORE LICENSE TIME (April 1st) Thod Felton's on the rising tide of consumer debt, the study shows that most families tend to want more and arc never really satisfied with what they have. ''Businessmen who worry because (hey think their market is saturated 'do not realize that the dream of a continuously higher standard of living is very real for most families in this country." .said Harry A. Collinger, Admiral Finance president. "> ".North. South. East and West, our sample shows that Americans in the main seem never to be satisfied. They always want to improve their standard of living." The report was entitled, "Saturation Is it Myth." In it.s sample of -1.500 customer?. the company found that approximately fl2 per ncnt hail refrigerators, (59 i«r cent had washing machines, 78 per cent had toasters, 63 :>er cent had vacuum cleaners. Tti 'per cent had TV sols and about 09 per cent had radios. "Yet despite that seeming high salnrutitn," the report said, "they bought more electric appliances— :t second and thin! radio, another (portable) TV set, a second vacuum cleaner for upstairs, a spinet piano for the den, a better kitchen range, a sandwich toaster in addition to tile bread toaster, a second small refrigerator for the rumpus room.'' Collinger said the study indicates that "it is generally the people who already have a house or car or home appliances who are in the market for a newer version or a second version. "In a period of sustained spending- power and high savings like the present, families tend to increase their wants rather than to become satisfied with what they have." Hearings Ordered On Passenger Fare Boost WASHINGTON — UP — The Interstate Commerce Commission Wednesday ordered an investigation and hearings on a proposed 5 per cent boost in passenger faros by Eastern and Western railroads. ICC procedure will be determined by ihe commission when the carriers file a schedule of their proposed tariffs. The railroads want the increase to go into effect Mav 1.
