razing of the Jackson House another old structure has joined the list of Hunting dons rapidly vanishing land marks The claim of being more than a hundred years old is mildJy conservative as the time of its erection as the Eagle Inn would exceed this estimate It became a popular stopping plaos when Allegheny Street was on the main route of travel between East and West The time of William Jacksons purchase of the Eagle is un known but undoubtedly it be came the Jackson House from The charred among solid limbers in the demolition could that period on framework found possibly date whsn Jackson from the took over time and made alterations to his hostel ry Just a short distance below and probably his adjoining neighbor was the home of Uncle Philip Shullz who is to hive operated a distil lery

29 1951 and quote from the ccneluding part VIII of Scotts reminis cences including our own com mentary Allegheny Street at that time U84B was higher than now at that point When the railroad came along

Lancaster and later attended law school in Litchfield coming to Huntingdon in 828 In addition to his legal pro ession Wilson engaged in oper tinsj stage lines and carrying le mail and the time of his eath in 1871 is said to have eit a considerable fortune It vas most unfortunate that Pru ence Jackson should have turn d away from Moorhead there ly blighting her future as Vloorhead was to win many

WASHINGTON There is more than meets the eye in Vice Pres ident Nixons ailout advocacy of the Eisenhower budget which most other Republicans in Con gress are trying to slash It would rightly cause a raising of eyebrows if Mr Nixon were ducking for cover by giving only perfunctory support to the White House now that the Presidents policies have suddenly become unpopular with his own party But the significant fact is that the vice president far from run ning to cover is joining the fray energetically and unreservedly on Mr Eisenhowers side and agains the advice of some of his play itsafe lolitical friends What is evident from his vig orous dont hack the budget dont toy with the peace speech before the Iron and Stee Institute in New York is tha Mr Nixon does not intend to play it safe does not intend to pis it cozy is prepared to see hi political star rise or fall for President Eisenhowers Moc ern Republicanism all the way In view of the fact that Mr Nixons future is still ahead

proposition hat the next Republican national convention will want to nominate urn only if it wants to continue he liberal leadership of Mr Ei senhower My impression is that Mr Nixon s perfecly willing indeed wel omes having this comparison and having the choice of the i960 nominee hinge upon this alterna tive more of the Eisenhower ijrand of Republicanism versus a shift in the opposite direction

thing about this is why Congress reverses the economy trend The answer among private hous ing industry experts is that it is a protest against the administration tight money policy Good And Bad News By CHARLES M MCCANN Jnited Press Staff Correspondent The weeks good and bad news oh the international balance sheet Cautiously but with evidently increasing optimism American and other officials spoke of the lossibility that the first step to ward a disarmament agreement with Soviet Russia may oon The hope wasbased largely on that the Soviet govern ment is about ready at last to agree to a system of inspection hat would guard the Western Al lies against cheating For one thing Russian economy is suffering from the cost of main taining an enormous arms budget For another conviction is grow ing that Russian leaders realize the catastrophe which would hit the Soviet Union as well as West ern countries in an atomic war President Eisenhower said at Iiis press conference in Washing ton Thursday There has got to be progress in some kind of dis armament or there is going to be no reduction in world But Adm Arthur W Radford chairman of the joint chiefs ol staff voiced the pessimism of a strong group of officials in the armed forces and the State De partment over the possibility of reaching any agreement which the Russians could not violate We cannot trust the Russians on this or Radford

because the right wing Socialists withdrew from his cabinet coalition Former Premier Giuseppe Pel a was named foreign minister in he new cabinet in place of Gae tano Martino One reason for Seg nis fall was the criticism of Mar ino by Christian Democrats as well as members of other parties t was complained that Martino was not sufficiently assertive in Western Allied councils with the result that Italy was playing only a minor part Guy Mollet Frances 22nd post war premier resigned after being defeated by a vote of 250213 in the National Assembly the dom inating house of Parliament As the

the controversy concerning construction of a mental health hospital for which land was purchased in Haver ford Delaware County Legislation to recall authori zation for the construction was recently introduced in the Sen ate following a statement by Welfare Secretary Harry Sha piro that if faced with a choice of getting the money allocated for the hospital or the building itself he would choose the mon ey him a future which holds th prospect of the Republican pres dential nomination in ther are very large consequences whic can flow from the kind of al modern Republican speech he ha just delivered It is not too much to say that this speech and the other recent speeches which have led up to it mean That Mr Nixon is risking his political future and the 1960 j nomination on a firm commit j ment to continue and if any thing expand the Modern Re ublican policies of President Eisenhower That he is not going to seek lie i960 nomination by simultan eously pleasing the Republican conservatives and bowing pleas antly to the Republican liberals That is knowingly displeasing many of his conservative friends and supporters because he be lieves unreservedly that the Pres idents policies right and im peratively necessary and thai the Republicans and Democrats who are opposing Presi are wrong and Will be so proved as time goes on Mr Nixons commitment to the Eisenhower budget and Eisen hower program does not rest merely upon his latest and strong est speech This speech is merely the climax earlier actions Furthermore he has notbeen picking the easy places to speak
