'He Was My Whole life' Mamie Shares Glimpse Of Her Life Without Ike GETTYSBURG, Pa. (AP) Mamie Eisenhower says she still hasn't gotten used to'the fact that her husband, who died five years ago, is gone "It used to anger me when people would say, 'You're an Army wife, you must'be used to Ike being away,' ' Mrs. Eisenhower said in an interview published today in the Philadelphia Inquirer. "I never got used to him being gone. He was my husband. He was my whole lifei" she said. Mrs. Eisenhower has lived in serniseclusion on her 190 -acre farm here since her husband's death. The Eisenhowers took up residence on the farm, which is now a national historical site in 1955, the year President Eisenhower suffered his first heart attack. Eisenhower stocked the farm with, 243 choice 'grade cattle During his retirement, he en tared some of his Black Angus bulls in the Pennsylvania Farm Show. "I couldn't have told you how many cattle we had," Mrs Eisenhower said. "I always said the outside was Ike's and the inside was mine." Mrs. Eisenhower says she if comforted by visits to the Eis enhovver Library in Abilene Kan. "It gives me a good feel ing that Ike's at peace there in Abilene," she said, 'He's in hi old neighborhood, surroundec by old friends. There's a plao or me, too. But I don't like tplseldom opk at it or think about it much." One of her favorite monu- nenls in Gettysburg is the static of President Eisenhower out- ide his old office on the Get- ysburg College campus. ."I al- vays speak to him when I pass t". During the winter, I don't ike seeing the snow covering lis head.' She said she spends much of icr afternoons reading and vatching television. "I watch soap operas. That's an awful name for these programs. I 'ind them touching, very true ,o life." Mrs. Eisenhower said, however, that she doesn't .watch shows about hospitals because "it brings back memories of the months I spent in hospitals during Ike's illnesses." She said an inner ear problem causes her to occasionally lose her equilibrium and walk unsteadily- She said she is black and blue f r o m bumping into things. The ailment may be the reason for rumors that she has a drinking problem. About the rumors, she said, 'I lived with myself. I knew it wasn't so. And so. did my friends. I don't think there's anybody who drinks less than I discards old clothes. "I'm wearing many of my White House clothes now," she said. "They're all silk. You can't get that much anymore. 1 As First Lady, Mrs. Eisenhower did not give speeches and never held press conferences. She said she only went to the President's White House office four times and was invited each time. "I was Ike's wife, John's mother, the children's grandmother," she said. "That was all I ever wanted to be.' Uganda Arrests Are Reported KAMPALA, Uganda (AP -The Ugandan government to day reported the arrest of more Tanzanian "spies," including one captured in Kampala.

And she Court Upholds Ruling Despite 'Rebuttable Presumption' LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- The, state Supreme Court, which has reversed a number of drug convictions in recent weeks over the "rebuttable presumption" jury instructions, upheld a conviction today despite the same Instruction. The slate Controlled Substances law says that when a person is arrested while possessing more than a certain of quanity of controlled drugs, there is a legal presumption that the person intended to sell it. Selling drugs is a felony charge while simple possession , is only a misdemeanor. In recent cases, the high court has reversed convictions when attorneys for the defendants objected to a judge citing this section of law to the jury while giving instructions. These objections said that the instruction amounted to a comment on the evidence by the judge, an act prohibited by legal procedures. Thelbert Brooks, whose case was settled today by the Supreme Court, was convicted in Pulaski County Circuit Court.

The effect is to leave ordina ry people gasping for sustenance --cutting into their sayings rate, running up credit, striking for higher wages, searching for nonexistent bargains. Buying power for factory workers has declined in recent in many categories, including mortgages. New mortgages are almost impossible to obtain. As consumer prices continue to rise, the second-quarter increase being at an annual rate of nearly 11 per cent, consumers are faced with the task of paving at least $14.71 for goods and services that cost $10 in 1967. And despite the encour agement that Dent and other administration figures claim to find in the most dismal of re ports, there are solid indicator that prices, including those fo food, will continue rising. MATTER OF SEMANTICS Concern about whether th country is in the midst of a re cession is, tiierefore, merely mantic and of no consequence to most people. Some economists subscribe t a definition of recession a being two straight quarterly de clines in the Gross Nations Product, or total production f oods and services. Those tw eclines have occurred. Dent says the, definition is to severe, and a good many othe economists believe so too. The especially note that unemploy ment in recent months hasn risen above 5.2 per cent, an much less than that for hea of household. People are working, they say and they are getting raises to And a good many families ar Buying up a storm, judgin from the 1.9 per cent rise i p e r s o n a l consumption e ^enditures, compared with a 4 per cent first-quarter decline. But those who maintain \ are in a recession claim tha the jobless rate now might b rising toward 6 per cent ' ear end. And much of thai ersonal spending, they add, is neant to beat higher prices lat- ATT1TUDE SERIOUS This latter attitude is as se- otisly important as any of the atistics, which are mere in- icators of what has already appened rather than what is kely to happen. Dent interprets the current uarter from June through Au- ust as a period of adjustment, vith the economy improving at east in terms of output. The conomy is sound, he said. But it is this very coincidence f bad report-good outlook that cems to have disillusioned ome people. Month after month some member of the ad- linistration tries to reassure 16 people, and probably reales the opposite result. Americans are growing cyni- al about economic matters, .'hey don't expect much im- jrovement in their personal fi- lancial condition. And they .eally don't believe government vill do much about it either. And that adds up to reces- jion, if not statistically then certainly emotionally- 4-H CLUB NEWS One Person Hurt In Sunday Accident One person was slightly injured in a two car accident Sunday morning near the intersection of llth Street and School Avenue.
