stopped at Lin coln home town of Sherman Adams the assistant to the Presi dent to pay special tribute to the No 2 man in the White House Meantime from staff members came word that Eisenhower laughed uproariously Friday morning when he read the various newspaper interpretations of his teasing remarks Thursday about a possible second term The President started the politi cal speculation at a brief stop late in Concord The hint that he might seek another term came as he spoke before an historic joint ses sion of the New Hampshire Legis lature convened in a tree lined plaza before Concords antique statehouse Form of Jest People often ask me what my ideas are on how long I would like a residence in 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue the White House ad My own thought is they should ask how long it is going to take Governor Adams to finish his series of lectures on New Hamp shire because he doesnt seem to be a third of the way through them The entire development al though it came in the form of a jest was considered surprising especially since Mr Eisenhower had asked reporters not to ques tion him about his political future until next year Deputy Secretary of Defense to Resign in Future

there are separate law suits pending over acquisition of property and the Illinois House has an investigation of its authority under Hoegh said a report on the probe is to be made before the Illinois General Assembly before its sched uled adjournment next week Hoegh said that three points governed his selection of his ap pointees He outlined these as 1 They must be dedicated to a toll road 2 They must have basic hones ty and integrity 3 There must be absolutely no politics in the Much Abuse The governor said he told his appointees that they must be cal lused because they will be subject to abuse and He described the appointees as thoroughly conscientious forth right and He said they were willing to accept the appoint ments at sacrifices to The three will be paid a day and expenses for
