The retired Army chief of staff talked with reporters as he left a conference on defense with Presi- dent Truman. Asked for a direct statement on the presidency, Ike said he did not talk politics with Truman. He added: "I made up my mind to say noth- ing more, I wrote a letter and meant every word of It.

The surprise turn in the coal strike came as thc government called for surveys of fuel stocks at power plants in the light of rnpldCy dwindling supplies.

He said Mr. Truman wanted to discuss with him tho "general lay- out" of the nation's defenses and thc subject of "balance" of the de- fense program.
