Accompanied by Mrs. Truman, the president arrived at the White House after three days at the Army's Walter Reed Medical Center. He was stricken last Sunday with a mild virus infection and was hospitalized -- for the first time since he became president -for a thorough physical checkup. At the White House, the president posed for cameramen. Carrying a panama hat in his hand and dressed in a blue suit, he quipped to reporters and photographers: "Well, are you fellows trying to take the limelight off the Chicago convention?" A reporter said. "Glad to see you back," to which the president replied: "I thank you, I am glad to be back." "How do you feel, Mr. President?" "Fine," was the reply. As the photograohers Insisted on "just one more," the president grinned and told them, "Take your time, take your time. That's all I've had for a week--nothing to do but loaf." Signs Many Bills Although he talked of loafing at the hospital, Truman s i g n e d scores of bills there. One of the last measures he signed into law will increase social security benefits by about 540 million dollars a year. He blasted Republican attempts to change the measure and said he wanted to tell voters "how the Republicans dance when a well- i heeled lobbyist pipes a tune.
