S., Ike Soys By JACK BELL WASHINGTON Eisenhower said emphatically today it is not the business of the United States Government to provide birth-control informa- tion to any country. Eisenhower was asked at lis news conference about a report of a committee study- ng the foreign-aid program which recommended that the Jnited States give informa- tion to other countries which requested it on methods ol ireventing over-population. This was widely interpreted as calling for dissemination of birth-control data, a sub- ect on which potential presi- dential candidates have com- mented recently. Eisenhower said he cannot magine anything about which ie could be more emphatic in believing that it is a subject not proper for political or government action, function or responsibility. THE PRESIDENT said the ARTIST, GUESTS FIDGET UNCOMFORTABLY Fiery Lady Astor Opens Exhibit, Brushes Off Paintings as Trash subject has definite religious aspects and he has no quarrel with those who oppose the dissemination of information about artificial birth control. Eisenhower noted that the Roman Catholic Church, through its bishops, has re iterated such a stand. He said he admires and respects the Catholic Church. As far as the government is concerned, Eisenhower said it does not intend to interfere in the internal affairs of other nations. He said that birth control is an explosive ques- tion and it is the business of the other nations to meet it as they choose to do so. As long as he is her e, Eisenhower said, his govern- ment will not have a positive political policy that has to do with birth control. This is not our business, he said. Beach B-l. Hal C-ll. C-ll.
