Cabinet Meeting

Ike Has Busiest Day
No Fatigue Evident,

Since Stroke;
Snyder Says

WASHINGTON (M)-President Dwight D. Eisenhower, snapping
back from the mild stroke he suffered Nov. 25, presided over a Cabinet
meeting ,yesterday and then hit some golf balls on the White House
It was the busiest day President Eisenhower has put in since his
cerebral attack.
When it ended, Maj. Gen. Howard M. Snyder, the President's
personal physician, checked his pulse, blood pressure and tempera-
ture. All were described-as normal, and James C. Hagerty, the White

vote on Tax
For Sports
City Administrator Guy C. Lar-
com, Jr., last nigh recommended
to City Council that the council
not propose a tax increase for
recreational purposes on the Feb-
ruary ballot.
Larcom's suggestion came in re-
sponseto a motion last week by
Councilman George A. Keebler
that he study the question. The
Council has been seeking a solu-
tion to the city's recreation prob-
lem since the School Board an-
nounced that it could not sup-
por~t the program this year.
Wanted Action Deferred
Larcorn told the council that
the easiest way to raise money for
recreation would be to amend the
charter and raise the tax rate. He
suggested, however, that the
council defer action until the
city's needs for next year have
been estimated.
Approximately $17,000 would
be needed for the city to take over
financing of the program entire-
ly, Larcom said. Recreation ex-
penses of $36,435 have been
budgeted' for next year's recrea-
tion program.
Chief activities are providing
supervisors at ice skating and
hockey areas in city parks and a
summer sports program.
Study Year-Round Program
The School Board has borne the
cost of recreation programs in
former years, but felt it could not
continue to. do so after a proposal
for a school tax increase was de-
feated by the voters last spring.
The Council unanimously passed
a resolution to form a citizens'
committee on public recreation
which would work with the School
Board in studying he possibility
of a year-round program.

Liquor at Party
Brings Fine
Pi Lambda fraternity has been
fined $400 and placed on social
probation for the rest of the semes-
ter for holding an "unauthorized"
party at which liquor was served
to minors, it was learned yester-

The fraternity, which appeared
before Joint Judiciary Council on

House press secretary, said Snyder
reported: "The President's condi-
tion is excellent and he shows no
signs of fatigue."
Meets with Cabinet
President Eisenhower was with
his Cabinet members for an hour
and 40 minutes discussing budget
problems and legislative recom-
mendations to be made to Con-
gress next month.
He also spent an hour in con-
ference with Secretary of State
John Foster Dulles. Secretary of
Defense Neil McElroy participated
in the last 10 minutes of this meet-
While the Cabinet was still in
session-and to the astonishment
of White House newsmen - the
President donned slacks and a'
sweater and began practicing pitch
shots to the green on the White
House lawn.
Didn't Disclose Practice
Hagerty did not disclose the
golf practice until after photogra-
phers outside the White House
fence had noticed an attendant
tossing balls back to a golfer who
was out of view in the dusk.
Inquiries confirmed it was the
President, acting under doctors'
orders to get a little exercise. Hag-
erty said President Eisenhower
spent 15 minutes with a nine iron
and a. wedge. Snyder stood nearby
and offered comments as the 20-
yard shots arched across the lawn.
Hagerty said the chief executive
appeared to be making a "great"
recovery. The press secretary add-
'ed he spoke as a layman, not as a
U' Neurologist
Cites Mildness
Of Ike' s Case
Dr. Kenneth Magee, associate
professor of neurology, said re-
cently evidence from President
Dwight D. Eisenhowe┬▒'s neurolo-
gical examination "would seem to
confirm the fact that his current
illness is of a very mild nature
and no major brain blood vessel
has been occluded."
He added yesterday that, al-
though one can never predict the
future, any prediction would be
"more optimistic" than in the
initial relief period.
Dr. Magee cautioned against
using the word "stroke" in refer-
ence to President Eisenhower's
affliction. "It is often associated
with paralysis and cerebral hem.-
morage, neither of which the Pres-
ident has had."
According to the University
neurologist the President is in
good hands. "The consulting neu-
rologists are among the country's
leading neurologists," he said.
Recovery from such a mild ill-
ness may come in a' few days, he
The usual treatment for this
condition, he said, consists of de-
creased activity and rest for sev-
eral weeks, although bed rest is
seldom necessary.

Not Invited
To Confab.
Stevenson said yesterday he does
not plan to join the United States
delegation to the North Atlantic
Treaty Organization summit con-
ference In Paris this month, but
he left the door open to an invi-
"I have not been invited and
there hasn't been any discussion
of that," the 1952-56 Democratic
presidential nominee told reprot-
Stevenson said his job as Dem-
ocratic adviser on the United
States polity to be put forth at the
Dec. 16-18 meeting of North At-
lantic Treaty country leaders will
be completed within another week
or 10 days Then, he said, "I will
go about my business."
Whether Stevenson will be in-
yited to the Paris meeting hasn't
been decided, the State Depart-
ment ,said.
Stevenson spoke to newsmen
after an hour-long meeting with
House Speaker Sam Rayburn (D-
He said he briefed Rep. Ray-
burn on North Atlantic Treaty
matters likely to come up at a
White House meeting Tuesday of
congressional leaders, which Stev-
enson has agreed to attend.
Lincoln White, State Depart-
ment press officer, said it's pos-
sible that the question of an invi-
tation to Stevenson to go to Paris
may be decided after today's meet-
ing, along with other aspects of
his future as an adviser.

Gray Tells Building
Union New Policy
Will Be Stabilizing
moratorium on demand's for wage
increases during 1958 was sug-
gested to the three and one-half
million member AFL-CIO build-
ing and construction trades de-
partment yesterday.
Department President Richard
J. Gray said he was proposing
this "unorthodox policy" because
of inflation and its resulting
shortage of money and cutbacks
in construction.
Cites Tight Money
* He said the Eisenhower admin-
istration is advocating a tight
money policy which is aimed at
slowing down construction.
A one-year moratorium on wage
increases, he said, would be a step
toward stabilizing wage gains and
"obtaining full e m p 16 y m e n t
through increased production."
In conjunction with the pro-
posed moratorium he proposed
creation of a building and con-
struction industry committee to
urge related industries such as
lumber and cement to join in the
wage increase suspension.
It would also work out a pro-
gram for increased production ac-
tivity including an effort to force
abandonment of tight money pol-

Gray made the remarks to the
opening of the department's 49th
regular convention representing
19 international unions, 593 local
and county councils and 29 state
While construction has been
one of the brighter spots in the
1957 business picture, many in the
industry have been concerned'
about a two-year lag in housing
It's estimated that builders
would do well if they started
work this year on one million non-
farm homes.
That would be a decline of 23
per. cent from the boom year of
1955 when 1.3 million homes were
started, and the smallest total
since 1948.
Jenner May
Resign Soon
that Sen. William E. Jenner (R-
Ind.) may resign this month in-
stead of waiting for the end of his
term early in 1959 led td brisk
speculation about a successor yes-
Hoosier Republicans 'in Wash-
ington spent a busy day filled with
hurried conferences, telephone
conversations and political gossip
following Sen. Jenner's announce-
ment in Indiana Saturday that he
will not seek re-election.
Reps. W. C. Bray and E. R.
Adair indicated they would be re-
ceptive to a senatorial bid.
Indiana GOP congressional cir-
cles reported Sen. Jenner may
quit his Senate seat by the end
of the year, with a close friend,
Indiana's Gov. Harold W. Hand-
ley, taking his place.

Michigan Lawmaker
Urges Probe at MSU
LANSING (P)-Michigan's youngest lawmaker today urged a
"sweeping investigation" into operations of Michigan State University's
agricultural extension service and experiment station.
Rep. Russell H. Strange Jr. (R-Clare), 23-year-old graduate of
Central Michigan College, also called for a check on lobbying activities
of MSU officials pressing for legislative approval of budget requests.
In a speech prepared for a Mt. Pleasant civic club; Rep. Strange
said he had learned that the university's extension service and agri-

provided by the move, Prof. A. G.
Norman,; of the botany depart-
ment and director of the Univer-
sity Botanical Gardens said.
No completion date has been set
for the transfer but the main work,
of planning and, constructing.the
buildings and greenhouses should'
take at least two years, Prof. Nor-
man said.-
The new area ias considerable
variation in soil compared to thej
present location, he said in de-
scribing the site. Plans for dis-
position of the Packard and Sta-
dium site, used since 1914, have
not yet been completed, President
Hatcher said.
Gain Natural Beauty
In moving to the Dixboro loca-
tion, 4.7 miles from Hill Auditori-
um, according to Prof. Norman,,
the University will gain an area
of great natural beauty. The site,
bordering both sides of Fleming
Creek for about one-half mile al-
ready contains many thousands
of trees, artificial ponds and oth-
er landscape 'features, he pointed
"An attempt will be made to
preserve much of the area's pres-
ent condition, blending new plant-
ings with those already there," he
Many Garden Possibilities
The site donated by Matthaei,
a University alumnus, consists of
wooded area, creek bottom, rolling
hills and farmland, offering "at-
tractive opportunities for garden
development," Prof. Norman said..
"It will provide larger and more
varied planting areas in a rural
setting in keeping .with the Botan-
ical Gardens concept," he said.
"Our main goal will be to pro-
tect the natural setting of the
area while accommodating within
It the greenhouse facilities and
specimenplantings which arees-
sential elements of Botanical Gar-
dents," he said.
