Recalls War Cost Him A Fortune Washinglon-(/Pj-Harry Truman estimates that going, to war in 1917 cost him a million dollars or nore. In the book "Mr. President^" publishel today, Truman says thai while he was an investor in an oil ·ompany drilling at Eureka, Kan., n that year, "I got all. patriotic and joined the Army." "My partners. got into a fuss md let that lease go to pot," he :ays. "Another company took it iver and drilled a well on it and here never was a dry hole found ·n that 320 acres. It was the famous Teeter Pool.. "If I'd siayed al home and run my oil company I'd. have been a millionaire. Bui I always did. let ethics beat me out of money und I suppose I always will." Lonely Man, He Says In New Publication WashinRton-t/Pj-Hairy S. Truman, in his own words, is a sentimental, lonely man who some- reports that Gen. Marshall shared--in , Truman George C. part, at least--his opinion of .Paul Hume, Ihe music critic who got a blistering presidential letter for saying Truman's, daughter Margaret didn't sing very well. "The only thing, General Marshall said; he didn't criticize was the varnish .on the piano," Tru. man said'in a letter to a friend, ackling: "It upset me and I wrote him what I thought of him.' Truman says elsewhere in the book: "I rarely write angry letters. As a matter o f . f a c t , most of the letters . I write are the letters of a good neighbor." Ho also gives some udvlce on how to win an election. "Handshakes before election.day and precinct workers on that day to see that the voters come to the polls win elections."

House?-. . · ... · f Well,, Truman records that he used to spend some', of his time watching sandlqt baseball games Ihrough binoculars from a While House window. Once, he says wistfully, he strolled over and joined the spectators at a ball ?amo--but his presence broke up the game. Morton New Head Of Lions Club times feels the White House has turned him into "a two-headed calf"--a freak in the" eyes of the American people. Truman believes "there is no indispensable man In a rlomoc racy." But is he willing to turn over to somebody else the job he regards as the hardest in tho world? The president doesn't say, although he makes this comment on politicians in general--and he is proud to call himself a politician: "They never fet' out until they die or arc kicked out."

For all Its wealth of personal information about Truman, before and after he wcnl Into politics at the behest of the Pcndcrgast organization in Kansas City, it is significant for what it leaves out as well as for what it contains. Among the 'noteworthy omissions: There are only fleeting and noncommittal references to Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower. After World War II. Truman praised Eisenhower to the skies and promised to help him get anything 'he wanted--including the presidency in HI43. Similarly, Truman has nothing significant to say about Eisenhower's chief rival for this year's GOP nomination, Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio. Sponsored By P«nd«rg»»t Truman makes no bones of the fact that he was sponsored in politics hy the Pendcrgast organization. Bui he pays Ihe Kansas City machine never influenced him as public official. '"There is nothing 1 detest so much as a crooked politician or corrupt government official," he says, And he adds, speaking of the corruption charges made aginst his own administration: "But the type of businessman who Is a fixer Is even lower in my estimation." And he proposes that every public official--Including members of "ongrcss--whose salary Is more lhan $10,000 a year he required lo make public'"exactly what his Mitsldc Income is." The president blasts John L Lewis as "a demagogue In action" who "cannot face the music when the tune is nol lo his liking," and makes public the 1940 letter which precipitated h i s b r e a k wllh financier Bernard Baruch--a letter Implying Baruch was ungrateful for favors he and his family received. let Knilne Annlverury Lockland, Ohln-(/P)-.Iel aviation celebrating a birthday here today and tomorrow---(he 10th anniversary of the nations first jet engine, Eisenhower Peps Up Followers With tetter Soys He Plans To Re-Examine Situation; Truman Undecided (By Thf Associated Pros) Political leaders were alerted today for fresh hints of the intentions of President Truman nnd Dwight D.
