Secretary Tom Ste phens Secretary of the Treas ury Humphrey Postmaster General Summerfield and Mil ton Eisenhower the Presidents brother Donovan says one of the most telling points made by Milton Eisenhower in summarizing ar guments for the second term was that if the President was to work effectively for world peace it would have to be from the White House not from re tirement The author says

political party The President in private was disgusted and infuriated by the tactics of Sen McCarthy Eisenhowers attitude toward Sen McCarthy is further illus trated in a quotation he at tributes to
