Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - December 15, 1960, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper for ON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE The newspaper that makes all North I o wans neighbors HOME IDITION VOL AwocUted Pnw ud United Press Full LCIM Wires MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY DECEMBER 15 1WO f Tc a Paper Consists o Four Ont Guns hit embassy Ike ready to leave gracefully Yet its tough to pack up By ROBERT DONOVAN New York Herald Tribune News Service WASHINGTON It is said that when William Howard Taft returned to Ohio at the end of his term and was asked how it felt to relinquish the presidency he replied I feel like a loco motive pulling a toy wagon Last week when president Eisenhower glanced out at the stands being erected for John F Kennedys inaugural parade he told a friend I feel like the fellow in jail who is watching his scaffold being built Of all American presidents one eminent historian has said only Rutherford B Hayes was really glad to return to private life ALONG WITH its burdens the presidency carries such power such honor such access to men and information and such in comparable opportunity to com municate with and to lead peo ple that few mortals could give it up without some deep regrets President Eisenhower is no exception He is finding that it is tough to leave the White House and doubly so after the defeat of his own party at the polls In their last weeks in Wash ington Mr and Mrs Eisenhow er are paying a great deal of attention to friends and associ ates of long standing a n d to members of their family RECENTLY THEY two dinners each attended by 90 friends after which there was dancing in which they joined Mrs Eisenhower gave a debu tante party in the White House for her nieces The other day the President had his brothers Milton and Edgar in for lunch Mrs Eisenhower has decided that their last Christmas in of fice will be spent in the White House instead of at Gettysburg and their son and daughterin law and four grand children will be there for dinner At first glance life in the White House under the Eisen howers is about as it has been over the years The President is playing some weekend golf at the Augusta National Golf Club The daily routine in the executive offices goes on norm ally Eisenhower as in Decem bers past is working on the stateoftheunion message the budget message and the econ omic message all of which he will submit to the new Congress in the 17 days between its con vening on Jan 3 and Inaugura tion Day Jan 20 REMINDERS OF impending change come crowding into the Eisenhowers lives Painters have done the White House over inside and out to make it gleam for the prospective new tenants The President has taken Sen Kennedy around to show him the swimming pool the kitchen and the doctors office Mrs Eisenhower has conducted Mrs Kennedy through the second floor family quarters of the White House There was no personal humil iation for him in the Democratic victory He was not running If he had been the movers might be sitting on their hands on Jan 20 instead of carting knick knacks up to Gettysburg Nevertheless the policies of the President were an issue and the voters by however nar row a margin turned down the Repu b 1 i c a n Party Thus though no other President in the memory of living men ever left office with greater popularity than he still enjoys his term will end on a note of regret which will be made the more poignant by the cheering in Pennsylvania Ave for his suc cessor 2500 2000 500 250 CHEER FUND GOAL Previously reported Amvets Auxiliary Energetic Class Congrega tional Church
