PAGE '4 Siljf lay'mmt Editorial- The Decision To Run Again Is EisenhowerV-And His Alone The Democrats are saying that the Republican High Command, which contains the party's strategy planners, is exerting tremendous pressure on President Eisenhower to seek a second term, even though he is "an ailing, frustrated man." We don't doubt that pressure is being applied. It is only natural that the Republicans want to put a winning candidate in the field and they realize, of course, that Eisenhower is by far the most popular man in the party today. Despite ail The political setbacks, all the criticism and all the accusations from left- wingers and other extremists. President Eisenhower is winding up his first term more popular than when he polled the larg- est vote of a presidential candidate in U. S. history. Nothing has shaken the President's integrity, or undermined his conception of duty as he saw it. He has steadfastly refused to engage in petty political squabbles or to lend the prestige of his great office to any political element. We do not agree that undue pressure is being exerted upon President Eisenhower, any more than we believe the Democratic hierarchy exerted undue influence upon President Roosevelt for 20 years. President Eisenhower is a. man of too strong will, a man whose sense of values transcends his own human thinking, to submit to the whims of any group, regard- less of how well-meaning their motives. If President Eisenhower does not think he is physically able to .seek another term he will say so, and he will not run. There are those in the nation who have stirred up the American people by their propaganda that the 7 resident's recent illness is likely to recur and probably would be fatal if it did. In doing this, the rumor-mongers and rabble-rousers have impugned the integrity of some of the world's greatest physicians, who have spoken as truthfully concerning the President's illness as experience and wisdom would allow. These doctors have not said the President's illness would not recur. Who could say so and be certain? They have said only that it is unlikely that he will suffer another attack of ileitis, the intestinal ailment that led to his recent operation. President Eisenhower is past 70. The burdens of the Presidency are legion and difficult to bear. Even though a man is in perfect health, the strain of such tremendous responsibility takes its toll. Anything can happen to a man who has already lived his allotted three-score and 10. Therefore, there is no reason for speculation as to what may happen to Eisenhower if he decides to run for a second term. Let him be the judge of whether he feels physically able to cope with the pressing duties of the nation's highest SUN SLANTS office. The Democrats have few issues upon which to build their hopes for a return tu the White House they tenanted for two decades. The principal one would appear to be the state of the President's health. The second most important one, the farm problem, lost a lot of its voter appeal when both Democrats and Republicans closed ranks to vote for Eisenhower's soil bank program. We shall wait and see what President Eisenhower's answer will be. He and he alone must make the decision. We do not believe that any person or group can force him to decide against the "dictates of his own will. He is too strong-a man for that.

MEMO: From The Sun News Desk By Preston Pendergra** POWDER IS DRY FOR MOR.E than a. week now the temperature has soared above 90 degrees. We haven't had any rain to speak of and things are beginning to scorch. Oldtimers around these parts say'we are in the midst of a seven-year drouth. They say between 60 and so inches of rain a year is the average in this section of Texas, but it's been some time since that ir.uch fell. It's be*»r. hot all right. However, at least one veteran Texas avenue druggist recalls a time 25 years ago when the mercury hit 110 degrees. Garrett Herring, who has operated a drug store *n the same location for 55 years land has never been closed a full day in all that time), says the thermometers that recorded the ilO-desrree heat may not have been "official,' 1 but that neariv everybody who had & thermometer took a look when it KOI unusually warm. Most of their gauges showed 210. Ga.-rc:.t keeps his store open an average of 14 hours a day. That means he has closed only 10 hours out of 24 ior the past 12,775 davs, or a total o'. 37S,- C 50 hours.

BAD TDCE FOR FIRE SASSE ENTERPRISES on East Texas had a fin- the other day which inflicted fairly hea-.-y damage to air conditioning equipment and other items in their warehouse. Police Chief Roy Montgomery was waiting for firemen to return eo he could get a full report on the fire. Ke didn't think about it until he was having supper that night, but his air conditioning unit was in the warehouse—for .repairs. MOXEV FOR EATS EFFECTIVE AT the next City Council meeting Wednesday night. July 11, a fine not exceeding ji will be assessed by Mayor R. H. Pruett against any member of the council, the city secretary• city manager, department heads who are required to attend council sessions and newspapermen, who are late arriving. The plan was made effective on recommendation of Councilman A! Clayton who said he thought it would be a good way to raise money for council dinners. Remember, councilm.cn "'and others affected.', meeting time is 7 p.m. sharp. If you're not there when the clock strike.? 7, it'll cost you a buck. VOTED JX)WX MOTIO.V SINCE WE win be affected by the fine ruling, we thought we would be entitled to place a motion before the house at. lajst Thursday night's meeting, making the firsr- retroactive to 7 p.m. that night, but they tabled it. A! t-aid it wouldn't be fair because the m.'iyor didn't get there until 7:45 p.m. for that particular meeting. We tried to convince council that it would be as fair an ex-post facto lav.- as was ever enacted —to punish a. man for a "crime" he committed before -.he !a.-.v was passed.

By AU-VE MOSBV HOLLY\VOOD lUPi— Perle Mesta, "the hostess - with - the - mostes'," has finished her first whirl of Hollywood parties with the conclusion: Less food, less foreigners and less hats than at Washington parties. Miss Mesta. former minister to Luxembourg- whose- c;ireer was portrayed in "Call Me Madam." stopped here for a week on her first visit to the movie colony. Since the wo.-iithy widow i.s also a famed Washington hostess, J cornered her before she took off for Washington to find out what she though' of the Hollywood variety. Miss Mesta smiled, "Oh, parties are alike the world over. 1 ' But on second thought she came up with a few differences. "You sen many more foreigners nt Washington parties." she said. "And much more food. Oh, these, fon-ltrners low. to cat! I've seen parties in Kiiropr where the buffet table vi as loaded with food JVyAndJifopMe By BenneH Cerf ACCORDING TO oldsters in Am her.'-::.

One party she attended this week was an RKO soiree at Romanoff's for Helen Hayes and her son, James .MacArthuy, who is making his movie debut. That affair featured only four kinds of hors d'oouvres and no sweet table. At the party I noticed Miss Mesta was one of the few women wearing hats. 'Yes. they dress differently here than we do in tlie east." continued the motherly-looking hostess. Clothes nre lighter in color here, more informal. Not many hats. They dross here like Americans in Hong- Konj-:." Miss MeMa attended "u( leiisf twii or three parties" a day (iur- injr her week ill Hollywood.' When I saw her in her hotel lo>>l>y she' was en route to party No. 2'i and holding Up ruthcr well. "The movie people are lovely and vei-y interesting,'' she said. "1 love people who do things. And they have lovely homes. "However.'' she ridded. 'I don't eare for modern. My Washing-ton home is in 15th century French." Miss Mesta has a recipe for successful hostesses, in Hollywood and elsewhere. Her ingredients: "First a gue.st list, interesting people. Then the warmth of thu hostess. The food. Always have music. And see that* everyone there is always taken care of and has ;i good time. Decor i.s important, too." The most fabulous party she's ever been to was one in London during the coronation. The hostess — Perle MesUi. 'I always enjoy myself at my own parties'." she said and hurried, smiling", to the next party. Grab Bag Of Easy Knowledge You're Telling Me! Did You Know? Tho Answer.

Maurice Thorez, the French Communist who used to .spend hi.s .summer vacations as Stalin's guest, will probably be booted out of office. In the United Slates—Communist leaders are so bewildered they are almost running around in circles. How bewildered they are. how bitter at their leaders, both past and p r e s e n I. is illustrated by the New York Daily Worker.
