A MODERN HERO'
If this nation as a whole can
be said to have any
heroes, Dwight David
hower must certainly

As a soldier, Eisenhower's life
symbolized the bitter and bloody
struggle of this nation in the
two most terrible wars mankind
has ever brought upon itself.
As a president, it was 'his
sirmple and honest character,
bred straight from a Kansas
farm, that endeared him to the
people - to that bastion of
middle-class Americans living
in small towns, on farms, the
young families in the growing
suburbs, and the aging soldiers
clinging to the general's image
as the last living remnant of the
glory they themselves once held.
Charles DeGaulle, who looked
down his nose at every Amer-
ican president he ever knew ex-
cept John Kennedy, once said
of the old general, "I am told
that on the golf course Eisen-
hower is much better on the
putting green than with the
long shots. This does not sur-
The analogy is + Eisen-
hower was never a man ;: ia
of debate. of fine words and
idealized plans for the future.
As president. he was not even a
skillful administrator. What
Eisenhower was, however, and
perhaps this is most important
of all, was an ideal symbol of
security and the American
dream to a war-weary nation
needing that more than any-
Often an American president
is more historically significant
for what he represents than for
Gen. Dwight David Eisenhower
what he does. Such a president
was Eisenhower, who led the
country through eight year's of
domestic tranquility and respite
from war despite administrative
bungling in the White House.
He has been ridiculed for the
1957 budget fiasco with -Treas-
urer Humphrey. In the White
House, he was often the last to
learn abo+ imr-r+o-t n+-
istrative decisions made by his
understaff and the various fed-
eral agencies. He was slow to
react to the crisis in civil rights
that arose during his years in
He was, nevertheless, a great
American, if by that we mean
a man who was loved and re-
vered by his people.
Rising from an obscure Army
post in the post-World War I
years, Eisenhower was chosen by
Franklin Roosevelt to lead the
Allied invasion of North Africa.
His African campaign was
brilliant. In a single year, North
Africa was destroyed as an Axis
p o w e r and Rommel's once-
dreaded African Corps was fi-
nally defeated. Before becoming
supr e m e commander. Eisen-
hower conquered Sicily and
squeezed fascist Italy out of the
Eisenhower rose to the mii-
tary summit in late 1943. As
supreme commander of the al-
lied forces in Europe, he led
the mighties armed force ever
assembled. On an overcast June
day in 1944, Eisenhower gave
the signal to begin the invasion
of Normandy. Eleven months
later, Nazi Germany surrender-
The erstwhile Kansas farm
boy was lionized in Britain as
a genius or warfare and wel-
comed home by cheering crowds
in New York as the exemplar
of the fighting man.
' Yet Eisenhower hated "this
damnable thing of war," and
said he wanted to see "people
in my profession permanently
out of a job."
In 1948, Eisenhower became
president of Columbia Univer-
sity, leaving to assume com-
mand of NATO forces in 1950.
Before the political conventions
in the summer of 1952, Demo-
crats as well as Republicans
sought him as their nominee.
His la'ndslide victory in 1.956
for re-election made him the or'-
ly Republican president of this
century to win successive terms
in the White House.
Leaving office after his sec-
ond term, Eisenhower was one
of the first to warn against the
growing influence of a "milita.y-
The fact that the same col-
lege campus over which the gen-
eral presided for two years
erupted into revolution last year
is indicative of the change in
mood this country-and espe-
cially the youth of this country
-has undergone since Eisen-
hower stepped down from paiv. *
It would be wrong for the
youth of today to idolize Eisen-
hower, for he represents the
warlike mentality of a genera-
tion soon to pass into oblivion,
But at the same time we can
revere and respect him as an
individual who never wavered
from the most sincere devotion
to his country.
He shall be mourned.
