Arab propaganda about al-
leged Israeli territorial designs
had misled President Dwight D.
Eisenhower into believing this
In "The Or-
deal of Power
— A Political
Memoir of the
Years," pub-
lished by Athe-
neum (162 E.
38th, N.Y. 16),
Emmet John
Hughes makes
this revelation.
Hughes, who
was Eisen-
hower's adviser
Eisenhower in the 1952
and 1956 political campaigns, and
was the former President's
White House assistant for a year
during his first term in office,
believes that Eisenhower was:
"the politiCally inexpert leader
who made his unhappiest bluh.d-
ers- when he deferred to the
counsel of men of greater ex-
perience;" "the soldier easily
awed by great civilian names;"
"in world affairs, the unabashed
believer in - conciliation and
compromise;". "among all Presi-.
dents for at least a generation,
the one least interested in his-
torical theories or political -ab-
EmphasWng, that he "liked"
and respected him," he adds
that Eisenhower was "the man
of strong will—who reserved
his greatest force for keeping
unwanted things from being
done;" that he (Hughes)
"grew to meet his (Eisen-
hower's) only in deepening
dissent;" that: "He came, in
his own way, to seem to me as
toughly defiant of 'the terrible
simplifier' as the world in
which he lived — and with
which he grappled with so odd
a mixture of force and weak-

Israel's role in the Sinai Cam-


paign of 1956, and the Jewish
State's alliance with France, dis-
turbed Eisenhower.
When the former President
prepared his note to Ben-Gurion
during the Sinai Campaign in
1956, he was "between trips up
and clown hospital corridors for
his tests and X-rays," and he
commented: "Israel and barrium
make quite a combination."
Hughes, referring to that ex-
perience, states in "The Ordeal
of Power:"
"The whole Middle Eastern
scene obviously leaves him dis
mayed, baffled, and fearful of
great stupidity about to assert it-
self. 'I just can't figure out what
the Israeli think they're up to
. . . . Maybe they're thinking
they just can't survive without
more land . . . But I don't see
how they can survive without
coming to some honorable and
peaceful terms with the whole
Arab world that surrounds them.'
. . . . And pondering the reports
of French complicity from Paris,
his concern gets heated. 'Damn
it, the French, they're just egging
the Israeli on—hoping somehow
to get out of their own North
African troubles: Damn it, they
sat right there in those chairs
three years ago, and we tried to
tell them they would repeat In-
dochina all over again in North
Africa. And they said, "Oh, no!
That's part of metropolitan
France!"—and all that damn
nonsense.' "
Then came the report of the
State Department ordering
Americans out of Israel and Jor-
dan and Egypt, and it was fol-
lowed by the report of the Hun-
garian revolt. Hughes states at
this point:
"His affectionate regard for
the British makes him incredu-
lous. 'I just can't believe it,' he
keeps saying. 'I can't believe they
would be so stupid as to invite
on themselves all the Arab hos-
tility to Israel.' And in terms
of British relations with Wash-
ington: 'Are they going to dare
us—dare us to defend the Tri-
partite Declaration?' " (He was
referring to the British-French-
U.S. "basic document" for joint
action in the event of threats to
Israel's borders as specified in
the 1950 armistice).
It was at that point that the
President said he'd "better
get out of here," as he headed
for the doors to the terrace of
the hospital, adding, "or—de-
spite all those doctors—these
things will have my blood pres-
sure up to 490."
It became apparent that "the
crisis could end only in the flat
terms of a choice between po-
litical and personal destinies:
either Nasser must fall—or Eden
must fall. And the President
brought discussion to a close
with the tart commentary: 'All I
can say is—it's one hell of a way
to conduct a world election.' "
The rest is well known—the
withdrawals from the Suez, the
President's famous TV speech,
the warning to Israel.
Hughes' story is a valuable his-
torical addendum to that signifi-
cant episode in the history of our

following a survey of the kosher
The survey found that about
2,000 kosher products of more
than 400 companies were now
being produced under the rab-
binical supervision of the Union
of Orthodox Congregations of
America. The figures were com-
pared by the financial daily with
"only 1,000 producers and 225
companies four years ago." Many
of the largest food producers in
the United States were listed
as making kosher products

American food manufacturers

rituals that govern the prepara-
tion of kosher foods."
