except as the re ception for Eisenhower was measured against the greeting he had received in all the other ports of call Two factors ex plain this One was that Eisen hower has been in France three times in recent years The other is that he is insisting that De Gaulles government quit drag ging its feet in NATO and play thegame as other members are playing it IN EXPLAINING Hie warmth of the

luncheon table Its something to behold But such an explanation doesnt get down to the real reason for this impressive dem onstration of friendship and cordiality Im ready to believe that Franklin D Roosevelt with many of the Eisenhower quali ties would have been as warm ly welcomed or that Harry Tru man who is less outreaching in his personality would have been hailed with comparable enthusiasm The cheers were for Dwight D Eisenhower as President of the United States and chief spokesman for the free world in its life and death struggle against world Communism That Ike Eisenhower is a man of tremendous personal warmth A rousing blizzard which burst in on Iowa just as thous ands of persons were returning from Christmas holidays was to continue into Tuesday The weather bureau said Western Iowa was feeling the most severe effects of the storm just as it did Sunday Many people were caught in traffic jams brought on by the storm airline flights were snarled and a number of minor accidents were reported as the snow fell on a layer of ice THE STORM MOVED into the southwest part of the state Sun day But it was not as severe as the ones which hit Kansas and on into the Dakotas Iowas storm was City Sheldon and Rock general storm system but didnt Rapids areas give the state the full impact With the snow there is to be ja drop in temperatures also dur of the blast But for those lowans just re turning from a visit during Christmas the snow sleet ice and wind were strong enough While the southwest got the bulk of the snow Dubuque in the northeast had inches of rain Sunday Mason City had about a halfinch The weatherman issued a bliz zard warning for Western Iowa He said the snow is to be pushed by strong winds of up to 50 miles per hour with considerable blow ng and drifting Snow accumulating to an addi ii No possibility of quick steel truce WASHINGTON chairman of President Eisen howers factfinding board said is secondary to that central Honday ne sees no possibility of iorecast The Iowa Highway Commis sion reported heavy snow south east of a line through Denison Tort Dodge and Oelwein with highways wet and slushy and s 1 i p p e r y in the area Heavy snow also was falling in the fact ITS A CANARD to say as some delight in doing that Americans are despised the world around That was pretty much the premise of the Ugly American book to which have referred The reverse of this is true Im persuaded and what has happened to Dwight D Eisenhower within the past month is an impressive Exhibit settling the steel dispute before the panel reports to the chief executive Jan 6 The glum fore cast was made by Dr George W Taylor chairman of the threeman panel after the boarc resumed hearings into the dis pute Union President David J McDonald said a union straw vote shows that 95 per cent o the steel workers are against ac cepting managements last of A in proof of it In the past 30 years my own travels have led me into some 65 lands Never once have I been made to feel that I was unwelcome because I was known to be an American and let nobody doubt that I was identified by the natives as an American What the distinguish ing mark is I dont know for sure but something about any American identifies him Some would say of course that the friendliness with which I have been treated is but a re action to the friendliness which I displayed But that doesnt quite explain it If America or Americans were hated this hate would have shown up some where along the line RUSSIAS government has been teaching hatred for more than 40 years but I can report and without qualification that it hasnt taken so far as rank and file Russians are concerned In few places have I found a greater cordiality and thats the testimony of many another CONTINUED ON PACE 2 er

drama in Republican convention WASHINGTON W B o t h major parties strove Monday to capitalize on a stunning po litical Nelson A Rockefellers withdrawal from the race for the Repub lican presidential nomination Republicans pictured the GOP as a unified party one which refrains from rending itself apart in brawling con vention party which now devote all its energies to electing Vice President Richard M Nixon to the presidency Democrats depicted the GOP as con trolled by old pro conserva tives who do not give pro gressives like the New York governor a lookin There was even by Sen Lyndon B Johnson of of drafting Rockefeller for a high post under the Demo cratic president to be elected next Neither party had much to say in public about the prob lems posed for it by Rockefel lers definite and final an nouncement on Saturday that he would not be a candidate in 1960 for the presidential nomination and would not ac cept the vice presidential spot One big poser for the Repub licans was how to pump any drama into their convention opening in Chicago next July 25 It will be like a mystery novel of which every reader knows the ending Nothing now sighted on the political horizon can prevent
